  1. Peace River Florida Verts

    Here are a couple of verts that I found very close to each other. I am not sure if they are from the same critter or not. I am not sure if they are fossil or recent, but if I had to guess, I would guess they are recent or Holocene. Any ideas what these are? Verts give me trouble - they are rarely what I think they are.
  2. ID Help Please

    Two more items from the Peace River yesterday that I hope may be able to be identified -
  3. rapp beach hunting

    Surprisingly with no north wind since my last visit, still managed to find a fair amount of teeth on the south Rapp beach. Sadly the bigger teeth were broken. One piece of burrow with callianassid coprolites, hadn't seen any in a while. Beautiful morning, light breeze, no bugs. Not a lot of debris on-shore at tide lines and shell-lines in the water with minimal. Guess there are plenty of pieces there as every trip down or up the beach would find a tooth or two in the incoming tide.
  4. 5 Articulated Vertebras

    From the album Yorkshire Ichthyosaur Fossils

    Found by me, polished to show the detail.
  5. My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert I think this is coprolite, but I'm not sure Turtle shell Cool rock with turritella another turritella Big steinkern Sorry about the blurry pic, the only one I took of the ray teeth The shark teeth Find of the day shark tooth in matrix the shells. Appreciate ID's That's day 1. more coming
  6. Aurora

    I dug in the Pits of Pungo out front of the Aurora Fossil Museum for a few hours. Heres the haul. The shark teeth Phosphate nodules Coral Sea life burrows. Posterior lemons and coppers These teeth are sooo small I don't even know why I picked them up Bryazoa...? My favorites Some of those famous Aurora makos ( isurus oxyrinchus I think) What I think are posterior isurus oxyrinchus's though the one in the middle one looks like it has a burlette? meg? I would appreciate any feedback on these Two nice Hemipritis Double cusped carcharhinus taurus? Alligator claw core? Bird? Sea urchin spines ray teeth Fish/shark verts and partials. I would appreciate if someone s=told me the difference two of them stuck together Bone frags whale verts and frags Shells Can someone help ID them? I can't seem to find any papers or websites I also spent all my birthday money on their little gift shop. Heres what I got from there. I would be happy for any IDs for them. (I like things labeled) Dont know where from St. Claire. PA fern. What is the age and formation of this locale? Morrocan trilobite pyrite amethyst this is definitely my longest post even though its just pictures mostly
  7. Just seen these online listed as verts possibly ichthyosaur. they dont look like it to me? Wondering what you guys think?
  8. Possibility of Getting Abelisauridae Fossils

    My favorite dinosaur is the Carnotaurus (hence the name) and I would love to have a fossil of one but I am aware that they are nearly impossible to come by. I was wondering if any of it’s relatives fossils are more common or easier to obtain. Thanks in advance!
  9. What are these verts?

    A while ago I acquired these verts but never knew what they were. I can also see the obvious peicing togeather on the right one, but I sill think it’s all the same bone- correct me if I’m wrong. They are from the Kem Kem Beds and about 2 inches long. I also have more pictures if needed. Thanks in advance!
  10. A couple of vertebrae

    Trying to identify 2 Verts from the Peace River, Florida. Initially I thought that the 1st vert was shark. It is unusual. Hopefully someone recognizes the big circular "hole"... The 2nd is beat up a little, maybe harder to identify
  11. Please could someone advise me on the permission required to remove a fossil. At low tide on the North Yorkshire coast near Port Mulgrave I discovered 5 visible ribs and some verts exposed under seaweed. The fossil appears to be limited to this with no paddles or jaw etc but it is still my best find. The area to be removed is approximately 60cm by 50cm. It is located about 10 meters off shore and will be exposed again next week. I removed a rib in three parts and would be able to remove the whole plate with tools. Can anyone tell me whether I need permission to do this and if it would be ok to use a cordless power tool in the process. Best regards Steve
  12. So 2018 has been on a roller coaster of sorts. The east coast was hit with a prolonged cold snap to start the year which froze all the beaches up and most of the Chesapeake Bay too. So there was no hunting at all for the first week and a half of the year. The weather finally broke and i hit the beach i was luck enough to find a nice 2" meg/chub and the tripmaker was a pathological hubbell megalodon i was super stoked. Then the cold came back and once again the beaches froze right back up, so I was back off the beach again. The weather broke and all the ice went away and i hit the beach yesterday and killed it. Found the beautiful lower lateral meg that is just under 3.5", a couple nice makos, the 2 1/4' chub and a super sharp little meg. I also cleaned up on cetecean verts and chesapectens and an inner earbone it has been an up and down kind of month. Here is to a productive 2018. Hope everyone does well.
  13. Flat/flat verts?

    I find quite a few verts that are flat on both sides. How many critters, besides cetaceans are flat on both sides? Thanks.
  14. Articulated Fish Verts

  15. Hot NSR Trip!

    Hot long NSR trip. My legs are sore lol. Nice variety today including attached verts, bison tooth, mosasaur verts, multiple fish jaw sections, turtle shell, gastropods etc.
  16. Plesi vert prep

    Well I finally managed to prep my Plesi vert from Golden cap, Charmouth. The started so easy the matrix falling off them then I hit the pyrite, what a pest they turned out to be. Ended up pinging them a few times with the pen but happy with them.
  17. A successful Zandmotor hunt!

    Hello everyone! Saturday, I went hunting again at the Zandmotor. Even though it is only 25 min away by car from my house, I don't get to hunt there often. First off, a small introduction to the Zandmotor: The Zandmotor is a big beach extension between Kijkduin and Ter Heijde, and it is made by man. The fossils found there are mainly seashells (clams and cockles), which fill the beach, and also mammal bones, which most people search for (most just ignore the seashells, which leaves more for a seashell-lover like me ). Sometimes great white shark teeth are found too, but they are the only species of shark found at the Zandmotor (from what I heard); it's a mystery as to how the shark teeth got there. All the fossils date from the Pleistocene to the Holocene periods (so they are relatively young). The reason that fossils can be found there is because the fossils got dredged up from the North Sea, which is very rich in fossils; the case is similar for the Maasvlakte 2 and the Hoek van Holland, two other locations on the Dutch coast. The Zandmotor actually just looks like any other normal sandy beach, and many people just use it as such. In fact many people that regularly go on the Zandmotor ignore that fossils can be found! The Zandmotor is also a popular place for taking your dog out for a walk. Now my trip report: When we arrived, it was still rather cloudy, but at least it wasn't raining and there was little wind. We did put on our fat coats and were well prepared to face the cold. The small crash of the waves and the squawk of the seagulls filled the air. In the background, the harbor could be seen. Lucky for us, the weather quickly cleared up and gave way to a nice blue sky.
  18. Cretoxyrhina mantelli

    From the album Cretaceous of Texas

    teeth and verts from the Cretaceous around Ft Worth, Texas. eagle Ford group, mostly Kamp Ranch formation
  19. Various Bones, Verts, Marine?

    Haven't gotten much lately. A little rain and 10 days of killer wind and this is what I came up with. North Simi Valley...Miocene? Washed down from upper layers to deep sand. Silica sand and a little course sand. Amazing the tiny ones are even still visible...The sand it is in most likely fell 100' down the hill.
  20. Mosasaur Bones? N. Sulphur River

    First time out to N. Sulphur. Had to hike almost two miles from drop in at ladonia fossil park before I started seeing anything, that place is picked clean. Pretty sure most of these are mosasaur bones, not sure what the specimen is in the last two pics. Any insight would be much appreciated.
  21. Mosasaur On The Sulphur River

    Memorial Day on the Sulphur. Weather was great. Again, me & WFRR, went walking the river. The first 3 to 4 hours didn't turn up much, a couple of verts, various bone pieces, etc... Then I walked upon 3 partially exposed verts. I immediately threw down my backpack and started scraping away the loose dirt around them. By that time, RR was there helping. What an adrenaline rush. After about 45 minutes, we had found 20+ verts, some were just the knobs. Also, 5 sections of jawbone with teeth, most were broken off, a few loose teeth. There are several large pieces of bone that I believe are lower jaw & skull sections, a few bones that I think are from the front flipper, many, many small bone fragments. After we calmed down, the realization of just how much bone material was there, and how much weight there was, we thought about how far we were going to have to carry them. Oh well. We split the load, hauled it about a mile, what a beating. That's what friends are for, right? Thanks Randy! After getting them home and washing them, I was really amazed at just how much stuff was there. If anyone can shed some light on any of the bones, I would greatly appreciate it.
  22. A Very Fine Day On The Nsr...

    It was a perfect day to be out poking around in the rocks Nov 2, so my wife and I ventured out to the NSR to spend some time together. She found some great stuff (including a cool red zone echinoid). But my day was spectacular. Here is what I found: This pile includes sereral nice verts, a large plastron piece, artifacts, shark teeth, mammoth tooth shards, and a very impressive Mosasaur tooth. Here is a closer view of the vertebrae and a bone I have yet to ID (bottom left). A closer view of the Mosasaur tooth, a 50mm Goblin shark tooth (Scapanorhynchus texanus), a small but perfect lateral Cretolamna tooth and an unidentified tooth - possibly Plesiosaur or croc. A series of large to small Enchodus jaws. Next to them is a large flatened shark coprolite. A nice pile of artifacts - whole and broken. A couple closeups of some other verts. The one ont he left is definately Mosasaur, the one on the right I think is Plesiosaur. What a great day! Jon
