  3. Giant Nautiloid!

    Hi guys/gals, found this huge Nautilus this Saturday, still unprepped and I'm still in a bit of shock, once prepped I think it will be unreal... thanks, Alan.
  4. Skull ?

    Out hunting Jurassic coast yesterday, found this nodule containing what looks like the underside of a skull, symmetrical on both sides apart from one side is worn, if it is I was thinking croc or possibly Plesiosaur but it looks fish like to me, either way there is a lot of bone in there, any suggestions ? Thanks, Alan.
  5. Extremely rare, I never thought I'd get the chance to acquire one of these so I was very pleased when one came up for sale. Chitinobelus acifer Fischer 1981, a belemnite (or possibly belemnotheutid) whose rostrum was originally composed of aragonite with organic material. As a result, it's preserved as a compressed organic film with the aragonite lost to diagenesis. Belemnites are nearly always mostly calcite (largely thought to be primary) and preserve 3D in all sorts of rock. There is argument (quite complex) over whether this is an unusual aragonitic belemnite or something a bit different. There are prominent striations which are similar to those in the "normal" belemnite, Salpingoteuthis. From the Jurassic, Lower Toarcian Posidonienschiefer of Zell (not far from Holzmaden, Germany). As far as I know, this is the only locality it's been found. Phragmocone chambers just visible.
  6. Hi all, a seller recently offered this dinosaur claw and tooth to me from Ambondromamy of Madagascar. Truth be told, I know next to nothing about dinosaur fossils from this region besides there being massive predatory reptiles there. I was hoping someone could shed some light on what these could be. I am not even sure if the claw is dinosaurian. Thank you.

  9. Eastland, TX finds

    Stopped at a roadcut just outside Eastland TX and found a few oddities. Any help identifying would be appreciated. The screenshot of the location tag is from an app called ROCKD.
  10. Welcome to my first Fossil ID Post! I bought this fossil at a Market in Johannesburg. The seller claims it to be a juvenile Mosasaur. The sediment layer seems to be derived from seabed but I am no expert. Seller claims to have retrieved the specimen from Morocco. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: Squamata Clade: Platynota
  11. Fossil???

    Hi everyone, do you think this is a fossil? It comes from a formation rich in cephalopods of Lower Jurassic. 4 cm long
  12. Devonian - Jurassic combo

    The last 2 days where a little improvised fieldtrip, I itended to go only on saturday, but on the last minute I decided wit my girlfriend to leve on friday untyl saturday. we left Fryday afternoon to the ardennes area, my first stop that I wanted to make was a recently reworked roadcut near Chimay, A friend of me found a few very nice Receptaculites neptuni at this location. I followed his instructiuns to get there and once at the spot in took only a few minutes to find the first fragments of the sponges and a few pieces of indetermined Orthocerids. Although most of the site was already prospected by other people, after halsf an hour, I did find 2 very nice specimens of the Receptaculites neptuni. After this site we went even further south and crossed the border to France where we found a little "auberge" to spend the night and have a decent supper. in the morning we went to the area of Novion Porcien where a few abandoned quarry in the woods deliver Oxfordian fossils, mainly bivalves and gasteropods, but also Sea urchin spines and sea urchins. Although those last ones where a little harder to find we did get a coupel of complete Hemicidaris sp. On our way back home we stopped near Nimes in Belgium, again in Devonian deposits. Her we went to an old roadcut in the forest where we could find small but beautifull trilobite parts from Asteropyge. most of the time only pygidium, but we did find 3 cephalons. This was the last prospection of our little trip before getting back home with quite few interesting fossils. it was a welcome change to my usual cephalopods Manticocerasman

  14. Dinosaur Remains of Scotland

    Scotland has a lot to offer including good Scotch but when it comes to dinosaurs it's close to the bottom of that scotch barrel. The attached article reviews the meager and extremely rare middle Jurassic remains that exist. The Isle of Skye is the only place that have produced these remains. http://www.mdpi.com/2076-3263/8/2/53/htm
  15. For those of you that have visited the Black Hills Institute in Hill City SD you know that space is at a premium. When I heard that they were planning to add a replica of the large Jurassic Pliosaur Liopleurodon ferox , I said where? Well here it is flying high above. The new view as you enter Getting to this point was not easy. The replica was not complete and the skull was distorted. Started with a two meter skull mounting of the scapulae and the created coracoids positioned the pubes and ischia attached to the sacral ribs with a rod going through the “yet to be created” ilia attach the created gastralia basket, creating the disassemble circle that will support the massive paddles Mounting of the ribs Lots of modification to the ribs and lateral spines Its South Dakota cow country Bone corrections being made

It's an attempt at an ichthyosaurus breviceps skull but I just can't find any photos / diagrams that give me the information / confidence to complete the back.

  25. Lyme Regis- Charmouth

    Hello all Around April, May I'm going to the UK for a couple of days with my parents. They will visit some villages, while I'll be fossil hunting on the beach. I've done some research on the internet and thefossilforum, but sometimes the messages I get are contradictory. So I have some questions. -Is it allowed to search fossils in Lyme Regis and Charmouth with a hamer? I know you can't hack in the cliffs. -Is April and May a good period to search for fossils? -I have some serious problems with my eyes and it's very difficult for me to find loose fossils lying on the beach. Are there nice finds in the rocks? I can see those a whole lot better. -If you find an ichthyosaur or a big ammonite (I don't expect to find any) are you allowed to take them with you home? -Does anyone of you know if a good place to stay in Lyme Regis or Charmouth? I found a lot of places and now I don't know which one I have to choose. Our dog is going with us. -Any more tips? Thanks already Greetings Thijs
