  1. North Sea bone fragment

    This piece was found on the beach Domburg, Zeeland (the South of the Netherlands) , along the Dutch North sea coast. It was thrown ashore during a recent sand suppletion. It is likely from the Pleistocene. A friend of mine told me I might be a part of a pelvis, but I am unsure. Any help would be appreciated. Floris
  2. https://phys.org/news/2019-02-macaque-fossils-bottom-north-sea.html
  3. Hello, can anyone identify what mammal these bones may have come from? I know with some it may be very difficult, but any help would be appreciated. All fossils other than the first one that was found from a borehole from the north sea 46 metres down are from Happisburgh, all Norfolk, UK. I will post the next fragments after this post.
  4. English Mammoth

    Headed up to Walcott in Norfolk Saturday just gone, got there nice and early to beat the crowds, luckily the cold weather had put a lot of people off! Anyway, walked off towards Happisburgh and headed down below the sea defences, was soon finding small pieces of bone but nothing of any major interest, when suddenly i spotted it, up against the sea wall, standing out like a sore thumb, a tooth fragment! I quickly grabbed my prize and gazed in awe at it. I have travelled many miles searching for one of these and now i held one in my hands. I stowed my price in my bag and continued on my way, skipping along the beach until i reached the next groyne, walking up to the corner where you are able to pull yourself up the wall i froze. In front of me, laying on the sand, another one, bigger, better and mine. I couldn't believe it, two in one day! Pure ecstasy filled my veins. The markings on this one were incredible. I continued down to Happisburgh with my bag now considerably heavier (for once). Upon reaching it i could see a lot of other people searching the beach there so i decided to walk back the way i came but search on the tide line now as it was nearly dead low. i walked and waded down the beach until i got to around the halfway mark, i was on the phone at the time to a friend telling him about my day (gloating) and i wasn't really paying much attention so much so i nearly stood on it, looking down, with waves washing over it was another, this one was half buried in the sand so i dug it out like a madman and soon held my prize, this one had been rolled by the waves more so and had been worn down a bit. I carefully packed this one away and walked back to my car. I met a few other hunters on the way with kids who were most impressed by my finds. Now i have no idea of species on these, other than the fragment and second one being Mammoth and someone suggested the last one could be a straight tusked elephant, if anyone could expand my knowledge that would be great! This is my super serious fossil hunting face. It may surprise you but i am filled with joy inside. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
  5. @Linus told me a wonderful story about treasuring precious times with the people you love... whether or not you find what you think you are looking for. I immediately realized I had another similar, WONDERFUL stone. It appears to be “chock full” of interesting flora and fauna! @Linus, I truly hope this is also a Skanör fossil!
  6. Hey, you got fossils in my obsidian!

    I am figuring this “Fossil ID thing”! Please let me know if these pictures are clear enough/large enough. I see so much in this obsidian,.... but I don’t know what they are! So, is there obsidian in these fossils, or are there fossils in this obsidian?
  7. Fossilized bone found on North Sea beach

    Sorry I do not know terminology yet... I found this North of Amsterdam and I would love your thoughts. Thank you!
  8. North Sea Bone?

    Hi!, I found this one on a path made from seashells. This bone was included. Probably vacuumed up from the seabed and dumped on to dry land. The closest sea to here is the North Sea (The Netherlands) And I've been told that there was once tundra there with lots of mammoths. My biology teacher told me it probably was a toe bone. Could someone tell me for sure what it is? The rope is to keep it standing up and the stripe is 1Centimeter. Dimensions are 4cm tall, 3 cm deep, 4 cm wide.
  9. My Woolly Rhino 2018

    It has been a few years since I posted an update on my woolly rhino composite skeleton. Due to regulation change, not a whole lot of bones are fished out of the North Sea these days. So I haven't gotten many new bones in recent years. But last week I got a whole bunch of extra bones so I got the rhino out of the many boxes I have it stored in for the most time and so it's time for another progress update. For those who've missed my previous posts. I have been collecting wooly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis) bones for over a decade now ever since I got a few leg bones for my birthday. One thing spiraled into another and before I knew it I was trying to make a complete skeleton. Almost all the bones are from the North Sea where only isolated bones are ever found. So none of the bones have any context, which is why a composite skeleton is the only option. Of course this brings it's own problems, besides spending years trying to find all the correct bones, but also getting bones that actually match nicely. So some bones aren't an exact match but every once in a while I replace bones that don't match that good with better ones. And by now I have just over a hundred bones plus change for the extra bones I have doubles for. The skeleton is quite massive. Woolly rhinos were around the same size as modern African rhinos. Carrying over a hundred rhino bones up and down the stairs was also a good workout The only bone that isn't real is the skull, which is a replica cast. Only two bones come from different locations, one from a quarry in the Netherlands and the other from Hungary. All the other bones come from the North Sea. The neck is complete and I'm only missing one dorsal vertebra. I've got a partial sacrum with the front missing. I don't have any tail vertebrae. I've got a few ribs but not nearly enough and two large hip fragments. I've got all the big long bones except for the fibulae and one shoulder blade. By now I've got the hands fairly complete. I've got all the wrist bones, all the metacarpals. The phalanges however are harder to get and I don't have any unguals. On the hind legs I now also recently got the kneecaps as well as a few missing ankle bones. I'm only missing two ankle bones on both feet. I got all the metatarsals and the phalanges here are a similar story, I have the first phalanges, and one of the second. But again, no unguals. A beautiful humerus that now replaced a less complete dinky humerus. Left front hand of the rhino and my right foot for scale. And lastly there's this really nice nasal fragment where the horn would attach in life. It's just a small fragment, but the preservation is really quite nice. Some of the sutures can also be seen really nicely.

  14. (Modern) bivalve from the North Sea

    Hi all, I found this modern bivalve at the beach of Wassenaar (Netherlands) some time ago. What species is it? I am anticipating your answers with enthusiasm! Max
  15. All offers are welcome. I'm not looking to trade everything together, just willing to trade some of it. The black mammoth partial was collected in the US. The complete mammoth tooth is from the north sea I believe, and measures over 9" long. I am not sure where the mastodon teeth are from, but I got them from a very reputable member of this forum. Some of my favorite fossils are shark teeth, trilobites, ammonites, and stuff I can prep myself with electric engravers. Again, All offers are welcome!
  16. Which formation?

    Hi all, I have a question for you guys... But I wouldn't be too surprised if you don't know the answer. Well, as a few of you know, my local hunting spot is the Zandmotor, a beach extension in the south of The Hague. You can find some of my finds here: Well, I find many bivalves and gastropods here, that are from the Eemian stage of the Pleistocene (130'000 - 115'000 years ago). Those shells (like the other fossils found on the Zandmotor) are from pits in the North Sea. Those pits are very rich in fossils, and when boats come to bring the sand onto the beach, the fossils are taken along. So the shells here are the same as those found in Maasvlakte 2 or in Hoek van Holland (two other fossil hotspots similar to the Zandmotor), just like on any Zuid-Holland beach. And I was wondering, does anyone know what formation these shells are from? I know that here in the collections, putting in "Pleistocene sediments" is good enough, but I would like to know if this is really the formation they are in. Thanks in advance for your help! Best regards, Max
  17. Coelodonta antiquitatis cervical vertebra

    Fifth cervical vertebra of a woolly rhino.
  18. Piece of antler? North Sea

    Hi all, Same as the other one (North Sea; Pleistocene). I'm thinking piece of antler of a deer (Megaloceras?). Thanks in advance, Max
  19. Big mammal vert from North Sea

    Hi everyone! I received this vert from the Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam. It was in a big box with many other fossils fished from the North Sea (Pleistocene). The size of the vert makes me think of rhino or bison, even possibly mammoth. I asked already on Fossiel.net and they said it could be a chest vert from a bovid or a horse. But no definitive answer came up... What do you all think? Any help appreciated, Max
