  1. Another unknown piece, but at least with some information on its locale - Lavernock, Wales, UK. I believe it to be either Ichthyosaur or Plesiosaur but I'm afraid I don't currently have an idea what it is. I'd appreciate any input. Thank you, John
  2. In the past couple of months, I'd been to lavernock quite a few times looking for fossils. Usually each session would produce some nice assorted bits of bone and ammonite fragments, nothing too out of the ordinary. But lately, I've began finding quite a few bits of pleistocene bone there. I checked online but nothing really came up regarding pleistocene bones and etc, in Lavernock. I looked online and something came up which said that the bristol channel used to be a glacier? Which got me thinking that there's probably a pleistocene deposit at the bottom of the bristol channel which slowly washes bones ashore as I've only really found the bones on a very, very low tide. But I honestly don't know. Does anyone have any idea as to why I'm finding these bones at Lavernock? Here they are if you're interested: P1 and P2 are various bones, not sure about identification. P3 is a Bison tooth next to a deer tooth. Thanks!
  3. I found two ichthyosaur ribs and a fern leaf on my local beach, yesterday. Unfortunately for me, they were in a massive slab which probably weighed no less than 25-30kg. At first I tried using my chisel and hammer to try and split up the rock into more manageable chunks but that didn't seem to work. Moreover, the bits of rock were flaking dangerously close to the fossils. I then tried rolling the rock, and this worked for a while until it rolled into a pit where it got stuck. With the tide coming in, I was forced to leave the slab. Now this got me thinking: How do people go about getting big and heavy slabs off the beach without specialist equipment. I was thinking of maybe coming back to the beach tomorrow to try again to see if I can still find the slab and bring it home. Some methods of transportation I've been thinking of include: Rolling it onto a flat board and dragging it over the rocks. Putting it in a carrier bag then dragging it. More information: The beach is very rocky The tide comes in very fast so I'll only have around 20 minutes to get it past the tideline I don't have a stone saw or any other similar equipment I don't think its of any scientific value, but it would definitely be one of my best fossils. If anyone could give any advice on how to go about getting big slabs like this off the beach it would be great! Thank you! Also I'm sleeping for the next 12 hours so probably won't be able to reply
  4. Lavernock Bone ID

    Hello, I found this at Lavernock today. I think it's bone but am not sure what it's from. Doesn't really look like a typical ichthyosaur bone. Any Id suggestions would be much appreciated. The colouration somewhat suggests it came out of the local triassic bone bed. Hand for size reference.
  5. Before the government imposes further travel restrictions me and my family decided to pop down to Lavernock. It was a really sunny day and lots of people were already on the beach. The tide was very low and I was able to go out pretty far. After about 30 - 45 minutes I found my first pieces of triassic bone bed. Which were full of tiny teeth and fish scales. Severnichthys, Lissodus, coprolites etc. As I went further out to sea I began finding more and more tiny bits of bone. As our time to leave drew nearer I found my first vertebra! Even though it's only half it's still amazing. I found an odd looking bone next to the vertebra. If anyone could help ID it that would be great. I'll post a separate topic on that in Fossil ID. My dad found the nautilus on the way off the beach It's fairly big another first for me too. We had a great time and thanks for reading!
  6. Lavernock finds

    Hello Was out fossil hunting at Lavernock this past week. It rained a lot so couldn't stay for very long. I never really take my phone on fossil hunts but will try to get some pictures of the surrounding area next time. Here are some of my favourite finds! 1. Jumble of ichthyosaur bones. 2. Ichthyosaur rib 3. Not really sure, probably ichthyosaur rib 4. Gastropod my sister found I tried prepping the ichthyosaur rib but it didn't go too well. At least its still intact.
  7. Ichthyosaur Tooth

  8. Lavernock bone bed

    This is being sold as a bone bed from Lavernock, Wales. It is labelled as possibly dinosaur. It is rhaetic triassic. Could it be dinosaur?
  9. What type of fossil is this?

    Hiya. Wondering is anyone able to help a novice fossil hunter! I've been looking at lavernock point again in South Wales. Found this (what I assume is a type of fossil) embedded in a stone. Looks different to the usual amonite fragments, bivale/shell ones we usually find. Wondering if anyone could help identify it please xx
  10. What is this?

    I found this very small thing on my fossil of two ichthyosaur rib bones. It's very shiny. It is From Jurassic sediment (200 million years old) at Lavernock, South Wales, U.K. 5p coin for scale.

  12. Rheatian Fossil Tooth Identification

    For a University project I am working on a sample of Rheatian Bone Bed collected from Lavernock, South Wales, UK. During the separation process I found a different looking tooth to the common bony fish teeth and sharks teeth, but I'm not sure what it is. I think it looks like a mammal molar? Is there anyone with any experience around this topic that could offer some insight? I have attached two images the specimen, thanks.
