  1. Hi, I found these while pulling apart loose shale eroding from the rockface at the Lady's Walk Shale, Scotland. Be interested for any thoughts...! Can upload better pics if needed.
  2. Possible fossil?

    Hi, Went on a small hike today in my local area, Glouctershire UK. There is a hillside that was once part of the sea during the Jurassic period. Found this strange looking thing that really stood out. It was palm sized, found shells embedded in the rock a few feet away. Fossil or just a strange shaped rock? Any help welcomed, thanks!
  3. Is this a fossil?

    Found this at Lepe beach (famous for Paleocene and Eocene period fossils), Hampshire, UK. On the bottom left, I could see a shell (or a small leaf of coniferous tree ish) looking mark on the pebble. Could this be a fossil? Thank you!
  4. Found this today at Lepe beach in Hampshire, UK. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Ok this made me laugh on our favourite auction site . I am calling Doren because he enjoys this type of post @caldigger Fossilized skeleton . Found on Jurassic coast. Uk Possibly crocosaurus, wood you believe it.
  6. Kate and I were having a bit of a day yesterday so we decided off the cuff to visit Offerton 8 miles from Home to chill out. Hit an amazing vein, I’ve never had such a variety.
  7. sian

    hi totally new to this,but go to Walton on the naze uk for kids to find sharks teeth at the beech .they picked up this and have no idea if at al a fossil..
  8. Dino foot cast

    A quick iPhoney pic of a foot cast while on The Isle of Wight whilst i had a couple off hours of work.
  9. Hi all, my wife found this impressive vertebra on the beach at Walton-on-the-Naze this morning. Apart from it being from a bony fish, is there any way of narrowing down the species? It is from the London Clay deposits (Ypresian / early Eocene).
  10. A near complete, partly enrolled Paladin sp. found a couple of days ago, lying in three pieces in a pile of disintegrating mudstone. Brigantian stage (Mississippian), N.E. England, UK. I spent ages unsuccessfully looking for the missing bit but never mind, it's still the nearest to a whole one I've found for about four years - decent Carboniferous trilobites are generally hard to come by though moulted bits are quite common at the site. This stuff falls apart when wet and another spell of rain would have completely destroyed it. Apart from gluing, no prepping was needed. 1.5cm long
  11. Metriorhynchid tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    Rooted marine croc tooth from Jurassic
  12. Hi all, i am trying to learn how to identify the different species of shark teeth that you find here at Walton on the Naze. Up until now I have classified the very big teeth I have found as Otodus and the smaller ones lumped together as striatolamia macrota but I think that’s too simplistic. The ones below appear to have different characteristics to the other teeth. Could someone please help me to identify if these are indeed different species or just variations of striatolamia macrota. Thanks in advance. tooth 1: larger, boxier root?
  13. Hi all, While sifting for sharks teeth in the pebbles we came across these different looking ‘stones’. The top and bottom specimens are the ones we are questioning. Stones? Seeds? Scute? (Top one). Any help would be welcomed. Thanks in advance

  17. From the Great Limestone, Pendleian (Upper Mississippian) of County Durham, UK. One for @Spongy Joe and any other sponge experts out there. There appear to be no sponges (apart from Chaetetes) recorded from this well researched limestone but I've collected over thirty over the past few years. There are several different types, generally fossilised as broken fragments though these can be quite large (several inches across). This one is a curved sheet, like part of a vase or dish, about 10 - 15mm thick. The outer (convex) layer contains a good proportion of spicules showing five (and a few six) rays so could it be a heteractinid of some sort? The preservation is mostly calcite, perhaps original. Scale bar is 1cm long. Vertical section, showing disposition of tangential sections below. (specimen no. Sp. 13) Tangential section, cutting through outer surface on right and bottom (the orange layer, with smaller spicules than the internal ones). Closeups of tangential sections. Several five rayed spicules are visible along the edges (i.e. in the outer layer).
  18. Mystery Petalodont tooth

    I had a hunt for some shark teeth the other day in the Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian of Scotland and found an interesting Petalodont I havent been able to identify, its very similar in shape to Petalodus acuminatus but has no imbricated basal ridge between the crown and the base and the ornamentation on the crown is also very different from P. acuminatus. Any thoughts on what it could be would be greatly appreciated!

  20. Dinosaurs mapped in the UK

    Linked below is a map of dinosaurs discovered in the UK if anyone is interested. It is important to bear in mind that this is not every fossil. Not all fossils discovered are dinosaurs. And these discoveries are almost never full skeletons. They often get reclassified decades later once more data becomes available. I couldn't figure out how to embed the map in this post so posting a link to it instead. The link functionality on this forum created a completely different map showing different information non-dinosaur related. The search bar doesn't work either so ignore that. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Minimalist/index.html?appid=60e54e6f6fa64da8a14a0c5129dd783a The map was created by mapping and analytics company Esri UK . Comments from an individual on this map (not 100% accurate): Sorry, but not a very accurate depiction of Welsh dinosaurs. You've missed off the lovely jaw bone found in 1898 at Stormy Down, and all mention of the footprints which include the most important Late Triassic trackways in Europe. Also, it's very misleading to include the Sphenodontid reptile Clevosaurus which is not anything to do with dinosaurs. Many, many grammatical errors throughout too! The interactive map is fairly poor and misleading. Then to finish, you tempt us with historic Welsh geologists but only mention Dorothea Bate when you could have included so many others. Finally - your list of where to collect dinosaur fossils in the UK includes a lot of places where the rocks are far too young, and you'll never find any dinosaurs, ever! Even your very first sentence is wrong. Dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago, not 65. I'm not just being picky, but if you're going to write something like this, you should try to get more of your facts right, plea Sorry, but not a very accurate depiction of Welsh dinosaurs.

Some engineers have created an interactive map to navigate the overwhelming amount of data created by the Paleobiology Database, a massive collection of information about fossils and related research. The map essentially plots the location of every fossil ever found by scientists, from early mammals to dinosaurs. (Not sure how accurate and up to date it is but still useful). To search the map, you can click on different geologic eras, the strata that the organism was found in, or search the specific taxonomy you're looking for. The map shows the continents as they are today by default, but when you click on a different geological era they rearrange themselves, showing how dramatically tectonic plates have shift over millions of years. If you aren't looking for anything specific, just click around randomly and see what pops up. You can zoom in on any part of the world and see what kinds of fossils have been found there. ____ ___ .-~. /_"-._ `-._~-. / /_ "~o\ :Y \ \ / : \~x. ` ') ] Y / | Y< ~-.__j / ! _.--~T : l l< /.-~ / / ____.--~ . ` l /~\ \<|Y / / .-~~" /| .

  23. Unknown mammal bones ID help

    Hi I have had in my collection for sometime now some unidentified mammal bones . They was part of an old museum collection I think going by the markings on the cave hyena specimens. All the fossil found in Tor Newton (Tornewton) cave in South Devon UK. In the collection was cave hyena teeth and foot bones, a tip of a Straight Tusted elephant and there unknown mammal bones. Collecting from these sites is strictly prohibited today. So was probably collected from these sites during the 18th/19th century up until as late as the 1950s. There are three pictures of each bone if you can please help with an ID that would been fantastic. I will also include some pictures of the rest of the collection and as taster some images of the Pleistocene animals they came from. Pleistocene in the UK must have looked very similar to Africa in terms of the fauna.
