  2. Bone from Tankerton UK

    Hi all, This was found near Long Rock at Tankerton, UK. Seems to have been fossilized in pyrite. Any ideas what it could be from? Jay
  3. Plesiosaur/Ichthyosaur teeth

    Hey! Thought I would share a photo of my British Ichthyosaur and Plesiosaur teeth (and 2 Plesiosaur ribs and a shark tooth!) Most of these fossils come from South Wales except for the large tooth. It is suspected to be from Eurycleidus and was found in Aust, England. Plesiosaur teeth from the UK are apparently very rare.
  4. Thought this would be an interesting one for anybody overseas, who has never heard of Yorkshire’s Golden Cannonballs. Theyre only found in the UK along the Yorkshire coastline. With a 1/15 chance of having something inside, it’s safe to say they can be quite rare, and are always sought after. More often than not, they either contain one, or multiples of Eleganticeras ammonites inside. I’ll never tire of finding them. Theyre found in the shake jet rocks, and take hours to polish up the iron pyrite to give them their golden glow of you like. Here’s one I recently prepared.
  5. Hello, can anyone identify what mammal these bones may have come from? I know with some it may be very difficult, but any help would be appreciated. All fossils other than the first one that was found from a borehole from the north sea 46 metres down are from Happisburgh, all Norfolk, UK. I will post the next fragments after this post.
  6. I've always wanted one of these and it's just arrived! I spotted it on the usual auction site where it was being sold by an antique seller as a possible fish in slate . It is true slate but is a legendary Delabole Butterfly, a metamorphosed Cyrtospirifer extensus, almost certainly from the Delabole slate quarry in Cornwall, UK. Although quite famous and widely referred to, there's not that much solid information. They appear to have been sold to tourists, largely in the 19th century and this split specimen seems typical. I think they're quite rare though - most photographed specimens seem to be in museums. Many years ago, I wandered around the edge of the quarry and managed to find one small fragment in the waste. Devonian, Frasnian, about 4" across. ,
  7. Hunting at Eastbourne UK

    Hi All, So haven't done any exploring or hunting since a brief weekend spent in Hastings in September last year (had a few small finds which are still waiting to be sorted) This is due to me being diagnosed and dealing with a genetic disorder which has mostly put me on my backside and I've been seriously lacking in learning more and actually getting out there on hunts. To cut a long story short, I'm feeling more myself and the flames as been reignited and I'd like to try to get back out there. I'm currently eyeing up Eastbourne and Beachy Head via Cow Gap. i was just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on the location, I've already set about keeping an eye on the tide times as from what I've read it can be a it of a git of a location for getting cut off. looking at going the second weekend in February so will also keep a check on the weather. Any help is greatly appreciated Many Thanks The Complete Noob
  8. Hi, Does anyone know of any specialist fossil booksellers Preferably UK based, and with an online presence. Thanks
  9. What is it?

    Hi I found this at Monknash, South Wales coast, UK. Do you know what it is please.
  10. I was surprised to see this specimen for auction and pleased to win it. It's Anguloserra thomasi, a rare tooth from an ophiocistioid echinoderm and comes from the same locality as the holotype described here (abstract only): Haude & Langenstrassen 1976. I've been interested in these since finding three similar specimens in the UK that took a while to identify - shown in the next post. It's preserved as an impression - most material in this matrix is decalcified. Carboniferous, upper Mississippian, Culm beds (equivalent of Brigantian and Arnsbergian beds in UK), Aprath, Germany. Scale in mm. Here's the holotype from the linked paper (a latex cast):
  11. Hi all, I found these rocks around Copt Point at Folkestone, UK and was wondering what they could be. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jay
  12. A while ago, I was convinced that this was an orthocone with possible sponge borings though it was never really resolved. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/77979-strange-infestation-on-orthocone-shell-mississipian-ne-england/& @Al Dente suggested eurypterid as a possibility which I argued against, largely because they've never been found around here. However, a friend of mine has now found some undoubted eurypterid fragments in equivalent beds in Scotland, 120 miles away or so and where the faunas have much in common. He's pretty sure that this is indeed eurypterid (based on just a couple of closeup photos). I'm rather hoping it is though the boring sponge is also pretty interesting. Searching throws up Adelophthalmus as a distinct possibility, based on the ornament (see reference and drawing at the bottom of the post). So here it is again - eurypterid or bored orthocone? Brigantian (Mississippian) marine shale, Co. Durham, NE England. (Many more photos on the original thread, including very close up. The little rings are preserved in solid pyrite and go right through the shell/carapace.) From this paper on Pennsylvanian Adelophthalmus https://www.foss-rec.net/8/3/2005/fr-8-3-2005.pdf

    My first Stegosaur!!!
  16. Mystery Beach Pebble

    Hi everyone, A friend has asked me to post this rather beautiful mystery rock for ID, it was found by a friend of his on the Norfolk Coast UK. Unfortunately that's all the info I have on it with regards to find locality. My friend is thinking its biological in origin but I'm pretty convinced its something geological, it reminded me of cross bedding in sandstones and I came across some diagrams of cross trough bedding that seem to show an identical pattern but I cant seem to find any good photos of real examples. Any suggestions much appreciated! Regards, Sam
  17. UK Trilobites

    Does anyone know where I can find Trilobites in the UK (preferably south east) and how best to collect them?
  18. Bone Nodule - Saltwick (UK)

    Hi, I found this bone nodule today at Saltwick Bay (UK). I'm quite certain it is bone of some sort, but not sure whether fish or reptile. Could anybody please help me with an ID? Thanks, Mark
  19. While fossil hunting in the UK I came across this ammonite, taken from the Waterloo mudstone formation in Northern Ireland, which is Early Jurassic in age. It was cracked and covered in matrix apologies for the shoddy job of glueing it back together.. Was wondering if it could be a Caloceras? Any suggestions welcome, many thanks!
