  5. Christmas fieldtrip in the Turonian

    It has been to long since we posted a fieldtrip, but the curent worldwide situation did hamper our fossil hunts. A few days before Chritmas the situation in France changed and we could again go to the beaches in the North for fossil hunts. The 24th we went to the "Grand Blanc Nez" to prospect the turonian boulders en hopfully score a few big ammonites. This time we were als prepared for big finds: we took a handcart with us, because the previous time we had trouble to bring a couple of ammonites back to the car due to their weight ( 2 km on foot with more than 30 kg of ammonites is hell ). The weather conditions of the past few days had cleared up a lot of boulders and it didn't take long for the first ammonites to appear. Natalie found the first specimen, a Lewesiceras peramplum from over 30cm in diameter and a while later a loose Mammites nodosoides. A while later It was my turn and I found an large Mammites nodosoides from around 30cm lying between the rocks. a few extra ammonites were found, but of lesser quality. Halfway our day Natalie found a chalk boulder with a few bone fragments peeking out. not sure of what it could be we took it back home to see what the preparation would give. while heading back Natalie found the last ammonite of that day, this time a Fagesia catinus wich was a nice addition since we diddent had this genus in our collection yet. The ammonites where prepped over the following couple of days, but at first sight the bones didn't seem prommising so they were left asside for a while. So earlier this week we picked it back up and tried to prep it further. tou our surprise one of the fragments turned uot to be a complete marine reptile vert Natalie was overjoyed with this fossil. Just waiting for us on the beach : The prepped specimens: Mammites nodosoides ( 30 cm ) Lewesiceras peramplum ( 34cm ) Fagesia catinus ( 27 cm ) The marine reptile vert ( probably plesiosauria )
  6. In search of rudists

    having been unable to go out a full day to search for fossils for several months due to health problems, thanks to a recent improvement I went yesterday about 100 km from my home to see a site where rudists were found. The first fossil encountered was a huge colony of cone-shaped bryozoans which had fallen and overturned in a depression. (can be 150kg?). I forgot to take my centimeter scale, so in the photos there is my foot, my hand or my fingers .... Then, I found a rock rich in small Exogyra and rare Rhynchonella. Finally, the rudists were there, in a wall (only for the photo, impossible to extract without damage, hope they will remain visible for the next visitors) and some specimen more fragile or altered in scree. I will post photos of the collected samples later because they are very muddy and require a good bath ...(Sorry, Franz, you have to wait some days ) For me it was a great day in the sun, just before the rain returned today!
  7. Hi everybody! Today i wanna show you one of my dearest ammonites...Choffaticeras segne! Making a search by keywords in TFF, i found only three results for this species...so i decided to enlarge the number! Now i present you my Choffaticeras segne: it comes from Goulmima in Morocco, belongs to Turonian (Upper/Late Cretaceous), it is 19cm in height and 1.461kg in weight. This specimen has been polished in both sides, obviously. It's very decorative and it makes its good looking part in my living room. I love its external sutures, how do you call this kind of suture in english? Please, let me know! For who loves taxonomy and scientific classification (like me), i leave you a little pattern that i made. Thanks for "watching" Choffaticeras segne Dominio: Eukaryota Regno: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Classe: Cephalopoda Sottoclasse: Ammonoidea Ordine: Ammonitida Sottordine: Ammonitina Superfamiglia: Acanthoceratoidea Famiglia: Pseudotissotiidae Sottofamiglia: Pseudotissotiinae Genere: Choffaticeras Sottogenere: Choffaticeras (Choffaticeras) Specie: Choffaticeras (Choffaticeras) segne
  8. Good tides and a promising weather forecast and we were ready to go for a trip to the French coast ( Cap-Blanc-Nez) High tide was set for 8AM, so we left around that same time, getting there when the tide was starting to go down giving us a whole day of opportunities to search. First stop was the beach of the “Grand Blanc Nez” with the Turonian cliffs. Since our last visit there, there have been high tides and multiple parts of the beach were cleared of the sand. The prospection of the loose boulders revealed for me a large Mamites nodosoides and a Morrowites wingi. I was especially happy whit that last one since it is the first specimen of this species that I found. Natalie found a small belemnite , although this might not seem spectacular, it is probably the best find of the day as they are incredibly rare in the Turonian at this location. On our way back to the car Natalie found another ammonite, this time a Lewiseceras peramplum. The way back to the car then became quite hard due to the weight and sizes of those fossils. In the afternoon we went a couple of kilometers further to prospect the Cenomanian boulders on the beaches near “Petit-Blanc-Nez”. On the first few meters on the beach I found a boulder with a really nice Cunningtoniceras inerme sticking out. Further down the beach we found a few smaller ammonites, but we ended distributing those to a few starting fossil collectors that were prospecting the area. The last good find of the day was made by Natalie who found a small but exquisite nautilus fossil ( Eutrephoceras sp. ) in the Turonian boulders: to late for this one: Mamites nodosoides: Morrowites wingi : Lewesiceras peramplum: in the Cenomanian boulders: Cunningtoniceras inerme: the little nautilus: Eutrephoceras sp. : of cource the pictures of the prepped specimens will follow.
  9. Allegedly new fish species from Vallecillo

    Hello everyone, I saw this specimen for sale as a new species from the Vallecillo quarries. I haven’t seen something like this from this formation. Does anyone have any idea of what species might this be? The size of fossil is approximately 40 cms long. The size of the matrix is 63 cms * 43 cms. The pictures were not taken by me. Thanks everyone.
  10. Choffaticeras segne

  11. Today I had a good time with fossil hunting at the Dakota formation (early Cenomanian) sites and Greenhorn formation (Cenomanian-early Turonian) sites in Ellsworth county, Kansas. Typical view of the local countryside, but still beautiful! I keep finding these weird vertebrae-like rocks, clustered in this particular site and not other sites. I suspect it's not vertebrae but I still can't figure this out yet. These mysterious vertebrae-like rocks...reminds me of shark centrum and crinoid stems but I don't think it's them. This site is Dakota formation. I took these home just in case it is identified as fossils later. I think it's fossil vegetation of some sort. Maybe reed or horsetail? I found these jumbled at different locations but put it together and it fitted like a puzzle. I took it home and will be prepped. This is from Dakota formation. Inoceramus from Greenhorn formation. One of the best specimen of this genus I have found so far! Took this one home. Another Inoceramus, pretty good specimen! I also took this one home. Tiny fossil in the center. Greenhorn formation again. This tiny fossil, image enlarged and the ridges/grooves are visible. No idea what it was. I took this one home and will be put under the microscope for identification efforts. The storm was brewing at the distance as the cold front is heading south. It was lightning and I was at near the top of hill, the road would be impassable if wet, so it was time for me to go home! I will be posting some of those fossils on the Fossils ID section soon after it is cleaned up. Cheers!
  12. Help w/ ID new fossil finds!

    Hello! I'm a pretty novice fossil hunter, so I look for things that stand out! Recently I found these in a span of about two weeks, I haven't seen anything like them before. The small ones all have a flat/facet on the posterior side, same teardrop shape, and the larger ones look like " big ears" to me, lol. I thought maybe iron concecretions at first, but the small ones look different, in that they are not "round". Ammonites? Reminds me of some of the pics posted of plesiosaur fossils, I have more pics, but the files are too big to post all at one time - I would really appreciate any insight! Fossil pic 3.pdf
  13. Upper Cretaceous oddity

    While out in the Puerco, I smacked open a concretion to find an unfamiliar pattern. Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated. The specimen is from the Upper Cretaceous (Turonian) Carlile Shale. It is layered and each layer has this pattern. I currently do not have a measurement but will do so. Thanks for taking a look.

  15. Polish coprolite: shark?

    Hello all This summer I found this coprolite in the Odra quarry in Poland. I found around 6 of these but nothing else. The other members of the group found shark teeth and some other stuff. Mosasaur remains are also found there, but extremely rare. I know it's hard to assign coprolites to kind of animal, but is this what a shark coprolite would look like? Around 1 cm.
  16. Hello forum members! With the new Coronavirus raging across the world, I thought it would be nice to start some kind of advent calendar, using my own Squalicorax collection. Everyday I will post one or multiple Squalicorax teeth from one location. Let's see what ends sooner, my collection or the virus outbreak. I will start with the oldest tooth from the Albian substage and end with the teeth from the uppermost substage; the Maastrichtian. The first one is the oldest and also one of the smallest teeth in my collection. Unfortunately it is so small that the photo's are not as sharp as I would have liked, but I think they are good enough. It is Squalicorax primaevus from the Middle Albian Argiles tégulines of Courcelles, Aube Department, France. See you guys tomorrow, Sander
  17. I took this photo of an ammonite fossil from the Late Cretaceous (Turonian) Ladd Formation of the Santa Ana Mountains in Orange County on display at the fossil collection inside the Lewis Center for Applied Sciences at Orange Coast College earlier this week

  19. a christmas fossil trip

    Like last year Natalie and I spent 4 days on a fossil hunting trip on a few different locations on the northern coast of France. Each day a different location. The stormy weather conditions made the beaches realy favorable foor fossil hunting as lots of specimens could be found loose on the beaches. We started Saturday with Turonian sea urchins, sunday Kimmeridge clay and limestone, monday turonian ammonites and the last day mostly cenomanian fossils. Highlights of the trip were a few large ammonites ( Lewisceras and Acanthoceras ) and a rare tooth of a marine reptile from the Kimmeridge deposits.
