Found 26 results

  1. Jurrasic uncertainty

    Found while fossicking for belemnites at the mouth of the Waikato River. South Side of Sunset beach. First picked as a belemnite but the curvature and lack of distinct central rings gave me pause.
  2. Found shell like fossil

    I found this fossil it kind of looks like a curled up tail of a crayfish but I’m uncertain.
  3. Help identifying tooth

    Is it possible to narrow down what type of mosasaur a tooth came from? Found a tooth but it looks different from the typical ones I see all over google. Thanks!
  4. In an effort to give a more complete picture of life on planet earth during the age of dinosaurs, we did a post to get suggestions from TFF members about some non-dinosaur material. We got a lot of suggestions and it turned out to be a super informative post. We learned a lot and were able to begin the process of creating a better program for the kids. Just before that post, I had attended an amazing Ichthyosaur prep lab. It was found in Northern California, a few hours from hometown. Northern California is a dead zone for collecting fossils. There are some fossils to be found here but none on any private land that I know of. It was really cool to see the work being done on a Norcal Ichthyosaur and it ignited some interest on my part. i had already decided to get some Ichthyosaur fossils for our program prior to the TFF post. Our first Ichthyosaur fossil arrived today. It is a Brachypterigius extremeus vertebra from the Kimmeridge Clay of Weymouth, UK. In honor of the fossil, I will even go metric. It is nearly 7 cm and in pretty nice condition. I love it and I can not wait to add more. @JohnBrewer has some really nice Ichthy teeth for us so soon we will have a really nice section of our program for an animal I am very excited about. The second picture is of a really cool Mosasaur vertebra from Kansas that was donated by @Ramo . It is very compressed, crushed in the fossil process but that actually adds to the coolness to be honest. I love it and it was a hit with the kids in it's program debut last week. I am still learning about Mosasaurs but they will have a bigger spot in the program next school year for sure. The third picture shows a shark tooth display, croc teeth, a Mosasaur tooth, and a Pterosaur tooth. The kids love talking Pterosuars and we will some more pieces in the future. We kind of have to. They are extremely popular with kids and I want to expand on them in program. The shark teeth are Cretoxyrhina, Ptychodus, Scapanoryhnchus, and a Squalicorax. I will expand this display this summer as we add some Hybodonts to it. The Croc teeth are from HC and came from @Troodon . The Mosasaur tooth was a throw in from a purchase through one of favorite dealers. It did not take us long to add some really cool pieces and I am looking forward to adding more. Next fall we will split the dinosaur program into two presentations and that will allow us to expand on the non-dinosaurs as well as the dinosaurs
  5. On April 20, 2019, a free paleontological excursion took place under the working title “Moscow Sea”. The weather was wonderful. +12 degrees clear. As a result, no one left without finds: ammonites (whole and fragments), belemnites, brachiopods and bivalves were found. My fees for the tour: a book on paleontology in Moscow and Moscow region, posters and demonstration materials, equipment for video shooting. Additionally, he grabbed PVA glue to process valuable finds immediately on the spot. After collecting at the Pionerskaya metro station, we headed to Filevsky Park. Next was a brief lecture on the history of the Earth, safety and that can be found. And here we finally went to the "ammonite stream." The group immediately began to search. Someone was washing the soil through the sieves brought from the house, someone had bit into the clay of the Jurassic period with the help of sapper blades. And the finds were not long in coming. Just a few minutes later, one of the participants of the excursion found a small but pretty brachiopod Rhynchonella. The find belongs to the Jurassic period, its age is about 150 million years. A cute Russiella brachiopod, something similar to the May beetle in a good preservation. Slightly above is a fragment of the shell of the same Russiella, on which the lock is clearly visible - the same shell structure feature that distinguishes brachiopod from bivalves.
  6. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be theropod of some sort. Also if it's possible would anyone be able to tell what kind of bone they maybe like for example limb, leg, metatarsal, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! The larger bone measures nearly 9 1/2 inches long The smaller one measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long
  7. Can across this one recently on our favorite auction site, a torvosaurus tooth from colorado. Though with no intention of buying especially at the high price tag it is at I have my suspicions, the seller claims it its 100% no repairs or restoration. Looking at the pictures I highly doubt it as it looks extremely repaired to me and some of it especially in the picture zooming into the tip reminds me of the little air holes found in fake cast trilobite. Idk how much is repaired or even if the whole specimen is fake, I'd be interested to hear what you guys think. Definitely a gigantic red flag to me.
  8. Need Help for ID

    Hello. I am looking for identification of this fossil. I found it many years ago, and sadly, do not have much information on it. It was found in Northeastern BC, in either Jurassic or Cretaceous rock. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Belemnite

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    German Jurassic Belemnite bought online.
  10. Bone ID (bit worn)

    Hi, another jurrasic coast find in UK, assumed was a worn vert at first but looking afterwards it seems to hold some shape, ichthyosaur ? Cheers.
  11. Out hunting today in Whitby UK, having a lovely walk in the nice weather but finding nothing, literally back to the end ready to go back to car and this was lying between rock's, had a look and seen the nice gold keel sticking out, usual trick would be hammer blows to side to expose but I'm learning to be patient... prep pen is the way, cheers. Alan.
  12. Clam fossil ?

    Hi, just a quickie, found a few of these but this one is a big'n, seem pretty common but any extra information on the fossil ? Thanks.
  13. Apoderoceras Ammonite

    Was out hunting today and noticed a concretion under a large chunk of shale, had a peek and noticed the Ammonite, I've looked in books and online but can't really ID it as most the spiked ammonites are a lot thicker, have yet to open it as don't want to mess any of the spikes up as they do look delicate, I don't have a prep pen yet as I'm still pretty new to this, you think worth having it prepped or open it up carefully ? Was found on Yorkshire coast near Whitby, thanks... Alan
  14. Ammonite ID

    Opened up a decent sized nodule to find this ammonite, not the usual I would come across and with nice markings, sadly the outer part had been crushed but managed to free the inner, I will remove the matrix from the centre later, I believe it could be an Oxynoticeras but not sure, any ideas ? Thanks.
  15. What you think is in this ?

    Hi, came across this today, have seen similar in the area before, some sort of sponge/coral ? Cheers.
  16. Another hunt, found this chunk of bone (probably unable to ID but worth a shot) also opened this concretion to find a bone, has shape to it so ID possible, thanks. Alan
  17. Hi, was out hunting and climbed up some banks/cliffs to have a little look, came across this, was going to discard it so chipped off the end to have a look (which looked similar to a ball joint) and thought looked a bit boney, I think it's just some layers of rock/sand myself but wanted your opinions before I binned it, cheers.
  18. Hello everybody! Is it possible to say based on theses photos if it's a slice of an ammonite or gastropod? Hard limestone, upper Jurassic, Laghouat Algeria. Thank you.
  19. Hi, came across this after a storm, I extracted the bud looking objects bottom right, also found Yorkshire coast, uk, any ideas ? Thanks again... grrrrr won't let me add pictures again... will try n resize
  20. 1. Fossil ID please

    Opened this up and wondered if any ideas ? Thanks.
  21. Tooth looking fossil wood ?

    Another interesting beach find, think just fossilised wood or similar, you think ?
  22. Hi, was out a few weeks back and opened this up, looked different so brought it home, put it on nhm who thought was a crushed bivalve or something but I think looks a lil boney to me, has a fish like shape but I'm not jumping to conclusions, any ideas folks ? Thanks.
  23. Another Plesiosaur vertebrae ?

    Hi guys/gals, went on another hunting expedition and looks like we found another Plesiosaur vertebrae, not bad 2 in 4 days, not as good condition as the last but a vert is vert, not sure if little one in front is a paddle bone or not, opinions welcome, cheers, Alan
  24. croc tooth

    Hello, Found this tiny tooth of about 1 x 1 cm in marine Jurassic sediment in the Boulonnais. North of France. Could this be a marine crocodile tooth, such as machimosaurus? Regards, Niels
  25. ID fossil Port Mulgrave

    Found this fossil at Port Mulgrave, North Yorkshire last week. Overall length about 5 cm. I thought maybe it is a reptile (croc?) skull. The tiny spikes look like teeth. The bottom side may be the lower jaw, it has got these spikes on both sides. Thanks for helping :-). Sander Arendsen, Netherlands
