  1. An awesome tooth !

    Yesterday I was again in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) and I found a really nice tooth ! The tooth is about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide ! I think its one of the biggest tooth I have ever found ! Its a Temnodontosaurus tooth, which is a large Ichthyosaur. In the "Schlacke" (a specific layer) you can sometimes find smaller teeth but such big teeth in a good condition are very rare. I am really happy about this one Especially because there wasnt much material there, so it was a lucky find ! The prep took about 4 hours. - The quarry, where I find this teeth will close during winter so the tooth is also a great completion of this year !
  2. Temnodontosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A very nice Temnodontosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). Temnodontosaurus was a huge Ichthyosaur. The tooth is about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide. So its one of my biggest tooth from Holzmaden ! In the "Schlacke" (a specific layer) you can sometimes find smaller teeth but such big teeth in a good condition are very rare. Some more pictures:
  3. Last week I visited the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) for about 4 hours and I found many cool things ! Beside of some belemnits I also found some nice teeth. Mainly they are very small but this time I found a nice one. Its a Temnodontosaurus tooth, a large Ichthyosaur, which mainly hunted ammonites. The teeth had robust roots so that they could withstand the stresses of cracking shells without breaking off.‭ The tooth is about 2.1 cm long and I am very happy about this one. In the past I also found some nice Temnodontosaurus teeth but such teeth in a good condition are very rare. You will maybe wonder now about the negative title but as you can see at the pictures the tooth isnt perfect. A part of the root is missing and the surface is a bit damaged. Here are some impressions: Thanks for viewing !
  4. Temnodontosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A beautiful and big (2.1 cm long) Temnodontosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). Temnodontosaurus is a very big Ichthyosaur, which mainly hunted ammonites. The teeth had robust roots so that they could withstand the stresses of cracking shells without breaking off.‭ Such big teeth in a good condition are very rare in Holzmaden. Too bad that a part of the root is missing and that the surface is a bit damaged. Some more pictures:
  5. So I drew a paleo-reconstruction of a noteworthy but sparsely-known apex predator Temnodontosaurus eurycephalus, which was believed to be the top apex of the Early Jurassic until the rise of proto-pliosaurs like Rhomaelosaurus. Unlike its famous squid sucking sister T. platydon (metaphor, not literally), T. eurycephalus had a thick skull with deep jaws and large robust teeth suggesting a macropredatory diet and probably fed on other ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and anything else that it could swallow (Also, growing lengths of over 30 feet, it probably could swallow everything other than another Temnodontosaurus) This is actually my first time finishing a paleo-reconstruction using only a pen tablet and photoshop (All my other drawings were either unfinished or done on paper). I used a Huion 1060PLUS drawing tablet and Photoshop CS6 to draw this. Took at least 3 hours to draw, and I heavily referenced the holotype skull to draw the head. Turned out pretty neat, but I don't know if I should color/shade this.
  6. Hello all, i'm new here . I'm from Germany and have found a Ichthyosaurus tooth, i don't know which Temnodontosaurus Species. The tooth was found in Holzmaden (Germany) and is about 3 cm long. Does somebody know about the tooth from Temnodontosaurus Species? Thanks!
