msantix posted a topic in Fossil NewsDinosaur fossils from the mid Jurassic are generally rare but the Isle of Skye in Scotland has revealed fossils sites preserving around 50 footprints on ancient coastal mudflats. The footprints suggest that Stegosaurs and possible ancient cousins of duck billed dinosaurs were living in the Isle of Skye around 170mya along with large Sauropods & Carnivores, suggesting a high diversity of dinosaurs from the mid Jurassic in Scotland. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200311140536.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily%2Ffossils_ruins%2Fpaleontology+(Paleontology+News+--+ScienceDaily) The Journal article is listed below and is open access https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0229640 1. dePolo PE, Brusatte SL, Challands TJ, Foffa D, Wilkinson M, Clark NDL, et al.

In our cottage in an island there are these big rocks that were dug up from the ground when we first built our house but there is one rock in particular that looks like it may have been underwater at some point and I sure am interested in the possibility of maybe finding some fossils, what's your opinion ?does it look like it may have been underwater? And could this area have fossils? Thanks
