  1. Otodus, cretalamna?

    Guys I’m having trouble determining whether this. Is a cretalamna appendiculata lower or an otodus obliquus
  2. Some sheppey teeth

    Hi guys here are some teeth that need I would really appreciate some help identifying I will upload some more later today 1. I can’t decide between hypotodus verticalis and jaekelotodus robustus
  3. Isle of sheppey bonanza 17/7/20

    Hi guys, today I set out with the goal of finding sharks teeth from bed D of the ypresian London clay formation, Thames group. I hunted at the world famous site at warden point where the London clay occurs both in the cliffs and in the foreshore. it was an absolutely beautiful day 27C, for england that’s tropical At this site shark teeth are found in the gravel banks at the top of the beach and phosphatic modules are found at low tide not shown in these pictures but it stretches out very far ( an estimate would be 200-300metres) pyritized stuff can be found all up and down the beach, it’s is amazingly abundant! we (Me and my dad) arrived as the tide was going out and seeing as it hadn’t gone out quite far enough yet, we ate the sandwiches I made, delicious if I do say so myself. Half an hour later we set out onto the gravel banks to look for teeth, having found nothing But pyrite invertebrates for half an hour we continued around to the bunkers, the mud here was very deep I would say 1ft deep in some places, a bit of a sticky situation anyway here is where I found my 2nd favourite find ( I will be showing my finds once I have cleaned them so the clue I will give is it was what I think is. A zanthopsis dufouri) Rather pleased with myself I kept on hunting the ground uncovered by the retreating tide and found several more phosphatic modules to explore, a fun activity for the summer after 2 hours of looking for these I tired of the mud and I had cut myself on an oyster so we returned to the shingle to look for teeth again. This time I was succesfull finding 2 teeth, (one of which is a rarer species) and more interesting stuff which I will share when I have the opportunity to photograph all of it end photo shows just how muddy i got
  4. I have some phosphate crab nodules from the Isle of Sheppey that I've had for years. Haven't found a good way of prepping them yet. Tried various air tools (ME9300 and microjack) and air abrasive with limited success. Do any of you UK guys have any secrets you could share with me. Have one of the rarer spiney crabs that I would like to turn out good. Thanks for any help you can provide
  5. ID/collection (:

    This is going to be a continuing thread hopefully it can show others my small collection whilst also getting a few id’s along the wayhere are the first three challenges (boxes are 8x5cm) n.1 waltonian(late Pliocene) Walton on the Naze, red crag formation (this box is actually 3.5x3.5cm so the shells are around 2/3 mm long 2.nipa palm seed? And various gastropods Eocene, London clay, isle of sheppey 3 vertebra from sheppey(previous) thanks so much, will(also sorry for bad pics)
  6. Fossil wood?

    Hi guysI found this on the beach next to the early Eocene of the London clay at warden point at the isle of sheppey, is it just some mineral or is it a fossil ? Thanks (scale is 1cm cube)
  7. Eocoelopoma sp.

    From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a beautiful example of the Eocoelopoma sp. fish from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, UK.
  8. Warden Point

    Do people find much here still? I had a couple of sessions yesterday and found a decent shark tooth and various modules I've yet to look in, but not much else.
  9. From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a selections of my nautilus collection from the Isle of Sheppey's London clay. The nautilus on Sheppey are often crushed or heavily pyritised but occasionally good quality 3D specimens can turn up.
  10. Eocoelopoma fish skull

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    The newest addition to my fish family. This is another beautiful example of the fish Eocoelopoma.
  11. Notorynchus serratissimus shark tooth

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a lovely little tooth found in very good condition. Most teeth of this kind are found with badly damaged roots but this one has survived the rigours of time.
  12. Basinotopus carapace

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a beautiful little crab, unfortunately it is encased in a very hard nodule making any further prep very difficult.
  13. Glyphityreus Wetherelli crab nodule

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is one of the better crabs in my collection. Both claws, the carapace and parts of most of the legs are contained in this tiny nodule.
  14. Side view of the same fish

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    Side view of the fish in the previous picture. Some very nice scale detail on the flank.
  15. Another nice Sheppey fish.

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is the top of another nice fish skull. Not 100% sure of the species.
  16. Xanthilites bowerbanki crab

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a fine specimen of the xantilites bowerbanki crab. Quite rarely found in such good condition this is one of my favourites!
  17. From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a beautiful calcite cast of the centre of a cimomia imperialis nautilus. You can clearly see the septa and siphuncle detail.
  18. Hoploparia lobster

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is an excellent example of a hoploparia lobster with its huge claw still attached attached.
  19. Eocoelopoma curvatum fish skull.

    From the album Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    This is a very fine 3D fish skull. Most Sheppey fish are found crushed but this one has been lucky.
  20. From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a picture of my ever growing nautilus collection from the Isle of Sheppey.
  21. Sheppey fish skull collection

    From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a picture of my ever growing fish collection from the Isle of Sheppey.
  22. Flint echinoid found on Sheppey

    From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a nice little flint echinoid found on the Isle of Sheppey. This specimen has most likely migrated to the island from another area around Kent as flint fossils are not normally found at this location.
  23. Sheppey keeps on giving.

    Just got home from a rather windy walk along the beach hunting for fossils on the Isle of Sheppey. Found my first flint echinoid from Sheppey! Very pleased with this find as it is in pretty good condition too. Along with the echinoid I found a number of shark teeth, a few crab nodules and a couple of nice little gastropods.
  24. Do you own a nautilus/nautili that was found/purchased from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, UK? If you do please can you help me to compile a bit of information. I would be extremely grateful if anyone with a Sheppey nautilus could let me know the location the specimen now resides in (Museum, County, State, Province etc) and if possible a picture of the specimen with the species name if known. Also if you have seen one in a museum please can you let me know which museum. Myself and another collector on the Island were talking about how prolific the Sheppey London clay has been over the years and this raised the question on how far spread the Sheppey fossils may be. I will start things off with my own little collection of Sheppey nautili, still at home on the island. Many thanks in advance for any information you can provide!
  25. Isle of Sheppey fossil hunt!

    Today I spent over 5 hours scouring the beach at Eastchurch gap on the Isle of Sheppey with a fellow fossil hunter. We walked from Eastchurch gap all the way to Warden point and between us we found extremely little, a few broken teeth etc. As we turned round to head back it seemed our luck changed with it! The shark teeth began to appear in good number although many of them were quite broken and not worth keeping, a few nice specimens were there to be found! Of the nice teeth there was one stand out tooth, a Notorynchus serratissimus (picture to follow), the first one of this species I have ever found! :-D also a first for me was the small Burnhamia daviesi(Rhinoptera daviesi) ray file. My hunting partner also found a nautilus nodule with a damaged centre which he gave to me for my collection of nautili. The rest of the walk turned up many more damaged shark and fish teeth, some small crab nodules and a few quite nice examples of bivalves and gastropods.
