  1. Hey guys, i just posted a new video of two fossils hunts i recently had on the Yorkshire Coast. Feel free to watch if interested. I found an awesome nautilus and some really cool Ichthyosaur Bones.
  2. Here's a fossil hunting video I recently filmed where i had a very productive day. Feel free to watch if you're interested.
  3. Hi everyone, hopefully someone may be able to help. We went to Runswick Bay in North Yorkshire, UK today (my personal favourite place to look for Fossils!). I'm a VERY casual collector and an absolute amateur at it to boot. Our dog is also blind so half the time I'm making sure he's walking okay and he isn't falling over things so I don't get to properly roam like I used to. Anyway, amongst picking up an almost complete Belemite, a Belemite fragment and some Ammonite fragments and prints, I also picked up 5 rocks that I've no idea what they are but thought they were curious. One of them I'm almost certain is a fossil, it's the grey one that has a little peak top that's almost gold (which doesn't show well in the photo but in the right light, it has a gold shine to) but I don't know what it's a fossil of. I'm assuming some sort of crustacean. It's a shame I can't prep it as I'm sure it would reveal something or other. That said, it's also possible it's just a fancy piece of rock. The other 4, I've no idea what they are. I've most likely just got a pile of 4/5 interesting looking rocks which, if they are, is still cool. I tend to use them to decorate the edge of my patio pond (the fossils that aren't that perfect or ones I've brought home and then on closer inspection, realised its just a rock, ha!) I read the rules on taking photos of the fossils and have taken an awful lot of each of the 5, so here's a link to my Google Album with them all in. I've made the album so people should be able to view the photos. Tried taking from various angles etc. As there's a lot of each one, I don't suppose I'll get many/any replies but I figured this would be the best place where I MIGHT find someone who can tell me for sure if I have anything interesting or just some neat looking rocks. There's also one of our dog in there for cuteness. As we were walking back from the fossil area we tend to sit around and root for fossils, he went into cracker dog and had just dug some holes in the sand!! https://photos.app.goo.gl/dXLFRusYfRdwACco9
  4. A fossil hunt I filmed recently, which ended up being surprisingly productive. Hopefully you enjoy.
  5. A lucky find has revealed evidence of dinosaurs in Scotland outside of the Isle of Skye for the first time. A single bone, thought to belong to a Stegosaur, was quite literally stumbled upon on the small Scottish island of Eigg. The bone, measuring 500mm, is believed to be from the Middle Jurassic (166 myo). Read more at the BBC here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-53917742
  6. In the past couple of months, I'd been to lavernock quite a few times looking for fossils. Usually each session would produce some nice assorted bits of bone and ammonite fragments, nothing too out of the ordinary. But lately, I've began finding quite a few bits of pleistocene bone there. I checked online but nothing really came up regarding pleistocene bones and etc, in Lavernock. I looked online and something came up which said that the bristol channel used to be a glacier? Which got me thinking that there's probably a pleistocene deposit at the bottom of the bristol channel which slowly washes bones ashore as I've only really found the bones on a very, very low tide. But I honestly don't know. Does anyone have any idea as to why I'm finding these bones at Lavernock? Here they are if you're interested: P1 and P2 are various bones, not sure about identification. P3 is a Bison tooth next to a deer tooth. Thanks!
  7. Hello on my first fossil hunt today in UK coast I found the below shark tooth and this which looks like a fossil but I am not sure. any ideas if this is something? If you turn it lengthways I looks like a head with teeth and the type of shark tooth? Both were found with lots of fossilised tree
  8. Hi and Help

    Hi. I’m new to fossil hunting and collecting its a little hobby my 8 year old son enjoys. We came across this on the beach last year and I have no idea how to open it and if it is a ammonite. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
  9. I found this tooth in a river in the Peak District in the UK. Unsure what it is. I also found an oddly shaped stone not far from there. Please find to follow pictures of the tooth. Thank you.
  10. Looks like we have a new dinosaur from the UK: Vectaerovenator inopinainopinatus The University of Southampton has confirmed that vertebrae discovered at Shanklin on the Isle of Wight in 2019 belong to a new species of Cretaceous era theropod. Believed to be up to 4m long, the dinosaur had notably hollow bones. "Chris Barker, a PhD student at the university who led the study, said: “We were struck by just how hollow this animal was — it’s riddled with air spaces. Parts of its skeleton must have been rather delicate"." News article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/uk-england-hampshire-53738762 Full publication expected in 'Papers in Palaeontology' soon.
  11. Unknown Carboniferous bone

    I found this today in County Durham, UK. It comes from the coal measures (upper Carboniferous). If anyone can identify it that would be great. It measures 55mm long.
  12. UK Trinucleid Trilo

    Normally I try to only buy fossils with adequate identification but a while back I impulse bought this small trinuclid from the UK. based on my research it doesn't mach lloydolithus or salterolithus, so I'm inclined to say cryptolithus. What do you guys think?
  13. Walton on the Naze: Striatolamia?

    Hi all, My wife and I often find these on the beach at Walton on the Naze, Essex, UK and have assumed that they are striatolamia from the extreme side of the jaw. Are we correct or are these a different species? Thanks in advance and apologies if I have used the wrong terminology. Best regards, Carl
  14. I found these Jurassic ammonite fragments and belemnites near Seatown along the UK Dorset coast.
  15. I found two ichthyosaur ribs and a fern leaf on my local beach, yesterday. Unfortunately for me, they were in a massive slab which probably weighed no less than 25-30kg. At first I tried using my chisel and hammer to try and split up the rock into more manageable chunks but that didn't seem to work. Moreover, the bits of rock were flaking dangerously close to the fossils. I then tried rolling the rock, and this worked for a while until it rolled into a pit where it got stuck. With the tide coming in, I was forced to leave the slab. Now this got me thinking: How do people go about getting big and heavy slabs off the beach without specialist equipment. I was thinking of maybe coming back to the beach tomorrow to try again to see if I can still find the slab and bring it home. Some methods of transportation I've been thinking of include: Rolling it onto a flat board and dragging it over the rocks. Putting it in a carrier bag then dragging it. More information: The beach is very rocky The tide comes in very fast so I'll only have around 20 minutes to get it past the tideline I don't have a stone saw or any other similar equipment I don't think its of any scientific value, but it would definitely be one of my best fossils. If anyone could give any advice on how to go about getting big slabs like this off the beach it would be great! Thank you! Also I'm sleeping for the next 12 hours so probably won't be able to reply
  16. I found this fossil on Scarborough South Bay beach at low tide, well above the tide line. I am very new to fossil ID and would appreciate help, even if only to tell me if it is a plant or something like a crinoid! It is about 1 1/2 centimetres thick. Thank you very much.
  17. Walton on the Naze UK: Shark tooth?

    Hi all, can you please help me as I’m in two minds about this as it looks for all the world like a rose thorn but ‘feels’ the same as the sharks teeth we find here in the beach. We usually find sand shark in abundance but this doesn’t look like any of the teeth I have found before. What do you think? it would have been from the London Clay beds if it is a tooth. thank you! PS the dimension on the tape measure shows it to be approx 1cm in length.
  18. UK Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone, I have here a shark tooth from the United Kingdom Eocene. It wasn't given to me with much more information. It's around 8mm and unserrated. Is it possible to narrow down a species?
  19. From the album Jurassic stuff uk

    Hi all, a stained glass ammonite with copper foil overlay for the tentacles.
  20. Hi. i have found hundreds of sand shark teeth, several Mackerel Shark teeth and one Meg contender From this site but this very worn tooth does not seem to be similar enough to match my existing specimens. Can anyone help? it was found among the shingle to the north of the Naze towards Stone Point on the beach at Walton on the Naze, Essex, UK Apologies for the poor scale for non U.K. residents. The coin is approximately 2.3cm. The tooth Is fairly worn, thin and flat. Thanks in advance and if it’s too worn for an ID, no worries. It’s just nice to find something different!
  21. Hi all! I'd be grateful if anyone could identify this bone fragment, which is allegedly the distal end of a small theropod femur according to the dealer. It comes from the Isle of Wight, the age is Lower Cretaceous and size: 2 cmtrs height. As you can see, the distal end is somewhat eroded and the bone is hollow. Thanks!
  22. Possible Bone Found

    Hey there, This is my first post so please excuse any newbie blunders. I found this bone or other long thing lying on the beach at Tankerton, Kent, UK part of the London Clay formation this week, 14th July 2020. The London Clay formation is said to be early/lower eocene. To me, a layman to palaeontology and Osteology, it seems like a leg bone, perhaps tibia because of it triangular shape at one end?!?! I was told by a young gentleman on the beach that Mammouth have been found there as well in the past. That is about as far as my knowledge goes. I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks

  24. Jurassic Bivalve ID

    Anyone able to help me classify this bivalve. I interpret it as some sort of Infaunal bivalve but could be totally wrong. The specimen was collected at Rhoose point on the Jurassic Heritage Coast Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales from the Blue Lias formation.
  25. Hey folks, Found this fossilised tooth straight from the surf at Hove Beach in Brighton, Sussex UK. Assuming it's a horse tooth? Any better ideas? Also, any clue on age? It's my first ever find, so I have no idea what I'm looking at... tooth.mp4
