  1. Hi there. I recently purchased a big box full of shale, containing a number of disarticulated ichthyosaur bones from South Wales. Mostly ribs, but there's also a humerus and one or two other unidentified bones too. It's not an amazing piece, but I'd consider it good practice. I've been trying to work out how to prep it. It's in many pieces, and putting them together is a bit of a task in itself! As you can see from this terrible photo, I've made some progress. I've numbered the joins so that their positions can be found easily, and drawn in marker pen on the surface of the shale where the bones appear to run beneath. I'd appreciate any advice from anyone that's done this sort of thing before. This is how I intend on proceeding: 1. Complete the jigsaw - and hope it all fits together! 2. Prep each piece to expose the bones 3. Set the pieces onto some kind of backing - not sure what? 4. Tidy up the prep, and use epoxy clay to fill the cracks. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be very grateful. I've never dealt with any icthyosaur material before.
  2. This post will be ongoing as I am still processing my Oxford Clay and started looking at microfossils in it in 2009, I think. Hoping to start photographing finds very soon. See finds already donated to museum in Partners in Palaeontology - Contributions to Science. 1- Agglutinated foram 2 - Also Agglutinated foram according to museum, weird. Would like to find another photo to confirm. I think I need an Jurassic atlas on the things. Santa take note. Yes I will work out how to stack my microscope photos one day.
  3. Pterosaur tooth?

    Hello, I need help to identify this tooth, found by me in a Jurassic formation in Portugal. My first thought it's Pterosaur. I wait for your opinions. The tooth have 1cm. Thanks, Filipe
  4. I recently found this pair of Pleuroceras ammonites when splitting some concretion material I brought back from Buttenheim in Bavaria, Germany which I visited last May. From the Pliensbachian Spinatum Zone, Lower Jurassic. I wish I brought back more of that concretion material since it was so rich in complete ammonites.
  5. Marine Jurassic/Cretaceous help ID

    Hello everyone! I found many fossils in my last trip to a mountain in Valencia, Spain (as far as I know the strata in that mountain are Jurassic/Cretaceous) but I can't identify these 4 fossils displayed in the pictures below. I would appreciate any help, thanks!.
  6. Fossil fossil fossil

    Hi Is this : 1 and 2 and 3. Fossil wood? 4.Footprint ? 5.Track? 6.Track? 7.Track?
  7. Pliosaurus

    Estimated 160 mya.
  8. Lobster tail style fossil ?

    Out hunting this morning, opened up a slab of shale and this was inside, looks like a lobsters tail to me but could be anything in this game, found on Yorkshire coast, thanks.
  9. Eboraciceras carinatum

  10. A Short Trip For Jurassic Limestone

    When our Plan A was killed we had to go to Plan B. Plan A was to visit a couple of old mines and sample the mine dumps for pyrite crystals and to try my hand at gold panning some of the tailings a little. This couldn't happen as there was some sort of bike race going up and down the canyon the mines were at the top of. Not wanting to waste the drive over there, we decided to visit the nearby limestone outcrops and viola! Pentacrinus crinoids! More pics
  11. Fossil Wood? Or something else?

    Hi all, I recently found this on a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Dorset and have been intrigued by this find, i'm not an expert on fossil identification and was wondering if there was anything significant about this fossil. it strikes me as being either fossilised wood or an infilled burrow of some kind, however the shine, shape and downward strikes are leaving me somewhat puzzled. i would be grateful for all your potential ideas as to what this could be.
  12. Bivalve steinkern from France

    Hi all, Anyone know what species/genus this bivalve steinkern is? It's from Rivière-sur-Tarn, a location in France that yields fossils from the Toarcian stage of the early Jurassic (approx 180 mya). Best regards, Max
  13. Gastropod from France

    Hi all, Anyone know what species/genus this gastropod is? It's from Rivière-sur-Tarn, a location in France that yields fossils from the Toarcian stage of the early Jurassic (approx 180 mya). Best regards, Max
  14. Another bivalve steinkern from France

    Hi all, Anyone know what species/genus this gastropod is? Never seen anything like this one before... It's from Rivière-sur-Tarn, a location in France that yields fossils from the Toarcian stage of the early Jurassic (approx 180 mya). Best regards, Max
  15. Since getting into fossils something has been bugging me alot about material from the Jurassic and especially material from such places as colorado, utah, etc. Alot of bone material I see online for sale, mostly fragments in various sizes are usually unlabeled and generalized as being from any dinosaur from the Jurrasic. I wonder if there is at least a way to differentiate at least herbivore bone from theropod bone (like allosaurus from camarsaurus)? Is it similar to the method used for cretaceous bone of the honey comb pattern or not? I'm curious why it seems harder to identify Jurassic bone piece, I'd appreciate any input or discussion, thank you. For example would the first two pictures be considered theropod and the last herbivore?
  16. Ammonite ID please

    Hi, out hunting yesterday with not much luck then on my retreat I came across this on the footpath back from the beach at Ravenscar North Yorkshire, strange place to find it with it being high up, the path is in a fault line I believe, this doesn't look like anything I've found before, the nodule it is in is like red sandstone ? Any ideas ? Thanks. No idea why photo went upside down ?? Ha
  17. Allosaurus bone fragment?

    I purchased this bone fragment at a fossil show. It's from the Morrison formation of Utah. I suspect it's theropod, most likely Allosaurus because of its hollow nature but I just wanted to get other opinions on it. Thanks everyone!

    Found 21st Aug 2017 on Kimmeridge beach Dorset UK so late jurassic era. The centre line is slightly raised, the edges clean cut.
