  1. Are these all oysters?

    Hey, these pieces were found in the Normandy, France at the Falaises des Vaches Noir near Houlgate. I was wondering if these are all oysters and oysters pieces or if theres also something different?
  2. During april i and a friend had the oportunity to spend a few days hunting in cretaceous of Normandy, hunting for echinoids. Day one : We drove from brittany through Le Havre to Saint Jouin de Bruneval and Antifer Cape. (3 hours and a half) We let the car on the beach parking lot and hiked south on the peeble shore looking for fossils in the boulders on the beach. The cliff is cenomanian with a bit of albian at the bottom. You have to look carefully on rocks surface for the familliar spherical shape. I found about 20 urchins but thats about it. No shark tooth, just a poorly preserved ammonite (mantelliceras) and a few rhynchonellas At some point we noticed tide was coming back faster than expected, most likely because of the wind pushing the water back. We had to quicken the pace, and made our way through the slippery covered with algae rocks. We finally managed our way back to the car and took the road to Fécamp where we had booked an hotel for the next 2 nights. some finds of the day : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Cyclothyris difformis : See the all hunt gallery here http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/gallery/album/2849-haute-normandie-april-2018/ or on my flickr : https://flic.kr/s/aHsmiwWft6

    Crassiholaster subglobosus : an echinoid from Antifer cenomanian
  20. Hi all, Earlier in spring, i had to organise a field trip to "les Vaches Noires" cliffs in Normandy for my association. I decided i should do a trip earlier solo (in february) to see how it had evolved since my last visit. It happened to be kinda useless since with thaw and heavy rains it had evolved so much between my 2 visits... Epoches covered are mainly jurassic (caloivan and oxfordian) but also cretaceous (cenomanian). For pictures of the site itself, you can have a peek to Nala's recent report here : On first visit, i didnt find much that worth mentionning beside a bunch of oxfordian echinoids : nucleolites scutatus and a big ammonites (a bit worn out but still) from oxfordian also : Perisphinctes sp The club trip happened to be much rewarding : In the callovian clay from the beach, i found this nice pyritized Quenstedoceras lamberti On the lower part of the "cliff", i managed to find this one : Quenstedtoceras messiaeni ? and also that oxfordian big gastropod : bourguetia sp Also put my hand on a few complete echinoid spines Paracidaris florigemma spines : On the close up of the bigger one you can see the quality of the preservation : As usual, more samples can be found on my TFF gallery (i also added 2 specimens from 2017 i hadn't shot yet) or on my flickr :
  21. May the first was an excellent day to hunt in the jurassic of Normandy,the morning i went very early in the black cows cliffs,near Villers sur Mer
