  1. 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
  2. Fossil echinoid?

    I found this interesting fossil the other day, and have struggled to find out what it is. It's from the Jurassic of Northamptonshire. Scale is centimetres. It's partially broken, so may have been completely spherical? Many thanks. Sorry the pictures are a little dark.
  3. Unidentified Fossil

    Hi, first time on the site. Walking along a track beside a newly ploughed field on a hilltop in a small town in the south of England and came across a fossilised bone and wondered if anyone out there had any ideas as to what kind of animal it may have belonged - appreciate any feedback on this.

  5. ID required

    Hi, I’m wondering if this is a fossil or just a pretty rock. I have no experience other then wandering beaches with a hammer and chisel. I found this on Mappleton beach, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom. It is a beach with clay cliffs. I’m hoping this is the correct information and one of you lovely people can tell me what it is, if anything. Thank you.
  6. Two very tiny fossils.

    Hello, these tiny fossils were difficult to photograph, I had to improvise by sellotaping a magnifier to the camera lens, as I do not have anything that can do the equivalent where I am now. I was wondering if one of them is possibly a bit of crinoid? The circular bit seemed to remind me of modern bone. Sorry they are muddy, I'd probably break them if I tried to wash them. Scale is in centimetres, and they were found in Northamptonshire, UK, which is Jurassic. Thanks.
  7. Large tooth-like tubular fossil?

    Hi all from the UK. Brand new to this kind of forum, so please bear with me. Basically, I have a whole bunch of fossils I have picked up all over Britain. They fascinate me. Always wanted to get them ID'd but didn't know how. Then out walking, I found this thing the other day, and it's just too intriguing! So here I am! I was walking our dogs, along the edge of arable farm land - mid Lincolnshire. its really rocky land and the ploughs pull up all sorts. I found this horn/tooth shaped rock with a different coloured, darker core going through it. It's now around 65mm long, but looks like it has lost some off both ends. I have tried to capture as best I can. Any thoughts appreciated. The cross section is the 'bottom' - the fatter end. The other one is the break at the top. Thanks James
  8. Trip to Folkestone

    Went to Folkestone (Early Cretaceous, Albian) for the second time a couple of weeks ago. Last time I mostly climbed among the big rocks looking in the gaps for fossils but this time due to some poor navigating we accessed the beach from the opposite end this time around. This turned out well though as this stretch of beach has few of those big rocks but good access to the cliffs and slumps. We ended up spending most of the trip picking through the cliff base and fresh fall. This produced some nice ammonites, though it was still difficult to find whole ammonites as is the case with this location. We also found some nice gastropods well preserved, though very delicate, in the clay, as well as belemnites, bivalves and lots of ammonite fragments. My favourite find is the Eutrephoceras clementinum nautilus as I believe they are fairly rare and the colours on it are great. Also the Euhoplites proboscideus is a lovely shade and nicely detailed (Good find boyfriend). ID's are somewhat tentative so if you have any suggestions I'd be grateful. ??
  9. A few ammonites.

    I've been attempting to identify some ammonites I've found, yet they are incomplete, making it quite difficult. I have found a very useful app that had narrowed it down to the most likely few based on location, so I'll attach that, as it could help. They all look so similar . They were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Scale is in centimetres. Thanks.
  10. Walton-on-the-Naze Trip

    Went to Walton-on-the-Naze on the Essex coast about a week ago with my boyfriend now that we’re allowed out again. We weren’t too successful, I think the unusually dry weather we’ve been having has meant little erosion and not much tide activity to bring fossils to the beach. However we (ok, my boyfriend) did find a nice Striatolamia tooth and two disarticulted bony fish vertebrae which unfortunately have a lot of pyrite matrix attached. These were from the London Clay, Eocene, ~53MYA. I picked up some nice Glycimeris bivalves and some other gastropods I can’t identify (any comments welcome) from the overlying Red Crag which is Pliocene ~3MYA.
  11. flints or something more interesing?

    Hi We found these and picked them up on the basis they dont look anything like the flints in this ground. So not what they might be, any info would be appreciated like the other finds these were in a shallow valley in east suffolk under 1.5m of flinty sand and on top of or in the top layer of heavy grey clay with some chalk and slint in it.
  12. I've been looking at my specimens of Acrocoelites trisulculosus from the Toarcian Jet Rock (Mulgrave Shale Member = Falciferum Zone) of the north Yorkshire coast. This is an anoxic mudstone deposited during a prominent worldwide Ocean Anoxic Event (OAE) and, as might be expected, the preservation is very good. A number of them (7 so far) have a thin pyrite layer around the apex. This shows obvious lineation in all of them, mostly oblique to the axis of the rostrum. As pyrite is often associated with soft tissue decay, I strongly suspect that this is preserving muscle texture. The texture is similar to that preserved in some other coleoids (e.g. from Solnhofen). Has anyone else seen this? Comments welcome! EDIT: I may be wrong about the soft preservation - a few well preserved specimens from other localities (though not from here) show similar texture on the calcite. Most belemnites look smooth though. (Comments and photos further down this thread) Just two of the specimens here: No. 1: No. 2: left lateral (with divided dorso-lateral furrow - a little unusual) right lateral
  13. Found on Mappleton beach a couple of years ago. Planning on giving it to my Dinosaur mad granddaughter for her eighth birthday any info appreciated thank you
  14. Where in the UK is best

    Hello all I'm just wondering where the beat place is in the UK is best to take my children to look for fossil or anything I've looked on YouTube but for me it's all a bit to confusing I would love to get into this and finding my own fossil but wouldn't know where to start or how to even find a fossil unless it hit me in the face but any information would be great thanks
  15. I'm not sure what these are.

    Hello, I picked these up among some gravel. Is anybody able to identify them? Sorry there's no scale, the first one is about 4cm, and the two in the second picture are each about 2cm. Thanks.
  16. Hi, Does anyone know a reputable fossil dealer to obtain a complete skeleton? Preferably a Psittacosaurus for delivery to the UK? Thanks!
  17. Unusual Helodus tooth

    This is the most unusual Helodus tooth in my collection. It is from the British Coal Measures (upper Carboniferous). If my understanding is correct, teeth described as Helodus simplex, Helodus affinis, Helodus ranknei and Helodus attheyi all come from the same fish, just different parts of the jaw. This tooth looks similar to Helodus affinis but also similar to Helodus attheyi, so I suspect H.affinis was positioned next to H.attheyi and this tooth is from between the two.
  18. Hello, I was out walking for exercise during lockdown in the fields and found this egg like fossil on the surface. The farmer had been excavating topsoil from a ploughed field and using it to resurface a farm track. I have no idea what it is, could it possibly be a fossilized egg? I didn't realise finding stuff in fields was this exciting! Apoligies if the images are not up to standard. The outer material is red/orange, the inner material is dark grey Approx 2.8 CM Length, 2.1 CM Width, 1.3 CM Depth Thank You
  19. Ammonites and gastropods.

    Hello, sorry to be a pain with all these IDs. I thought itd be easier if I just put all of them in one post. All were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Which is mostly Jurassic in age. Sorry there's no scale, I couldn't find my ruler anywhere. I'll have to upload more images below this. Its been quite some time since I've found ammonites. The land had just been rotavated, and aside from the ammonites, I found some Bivalves, and two golf balls buried. Thanks. These are the first two ammonites, I tried to ID them, but they are incomplete, so it was a difficulty, the closest I think it looks like is Harpoceras. Each are about two centimetres (about 0.8 inches). I saw a neighbour had a very similar rock with two larger ammonites on them that was being used to hold a fence down.
  20. Gryphaea.

  21. Hello, sorry to be a pain with all of these bivalve IDs. Is anybody able to ID any of these? They were found in Northamptonshire, UK, which is mostly Jurassic in age. Thanks.
  22. Today’s local river finds

    Current lockdown restrictions in the UK mean we can’t get to the coast, but we’re lucky enough to live with walking distance of a river with plenty to find. Today was a productive day, we found lots of rugose coral, some stigmaria. Can anyone shed any light on the first specimen (top and bottom in first two pictures,) some kind of stigmaria too? Also, can anyone identify the impressions in the second specimen?
  23. Picking the Right Air Tool (UK)

    Hello everyone, I am relatively new to fossil preparation and up until last week have been using an electric engraver to prep some of my collection, but it overheated and died on me so I am looking into upgrading to a proper air scribe. I was hoping some of you who work with UK tools might be able/willing to give me some advice on picking a tool. I have heard very good things about both Zoic pens and the Ken Mannion TT but I'm curious to know what the difference between them is from a use standpoint since one uses pusher plate internals and the other a piston (I think). A little background into the sort of thing that's in my collection that I'd like to prep. Most of my collection comes from the Whitby area, so hard pyritised ammonite nodules (the photo is a D. commune I was working on when the engraver died). I also have Rhaetian bone material from Aust and some small concretions, probably C. clalamensis from the last time I was back in Washington. I will post a few pictures of the ones I'm looking to work on next below as comments. Any and all advice you can give me is greatly appreciate. I'm looking forward to getting some things shelf ready while I can't go out and hunt for more. Thank you, Benton Walters
  24. Crinoid

    Hi, does anyone know the species of this crinoid ? It was found in the Forest Marble formation of bathonian, Jurassic, UK. Thanks.
  25. Fossil hunting in the shed like many of us - I thought I'd lost this nice globular rhynchonellid in a house move years ago. From the top Campanian/bottom Maastrichtian Chalk of Norfolk, UK. I think it's Cretirhynchia sp.
