  1. New discovery! Something different this time....very different! I was quite stunned when I first set my eyes upon this one. It's another dino tooth, but it doesn't look Iguanodontian. Look at those long ridges! It has a prominent primary ridge and is coarsely serrated. Around 6 mm across the crown. I have compared it to Iguanodontians including Barilium and hypselospinus and dryosaurids, but it doesn't match any of those. For a start the serrations are course on my dino tooth and on Iguanodontians the denticles go all the way over the tip of the crown and they are much finer in iguanodontians anyway, and the known Wealden ones lack ridges running down from EACH denticle - Iguanodon has quite a fine serrated edge and only one or two ridges, but many denticles. So next I compared my tooth with Hypsilophodon thinking I had a good chance of a match here, but I couldn't find any that compared, when you look closely, with hypsylophodontids either! So next I looked at thyreophorans. Known Wealden teeth of ankylosauria group are known but again I couldn't find a close match. So I looked at stegosauria next and I found some similarities. But still not certain. It's an extremely interesting find for the Wealden whatever it is as it's a bit different! Any ideas anyone?
  2. A fair amount of Cretaceous, Gault clay, Greensand Wealden fossils. They're not my field so I have no idea what they are. All are UK specimens and from Kent or Sussex. There aren't any reliable labels! I'm looking for vertebrates in exchange
  3. Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. This time we had better luck, and we found lots of them and even a few nautiluses. There was a sealion in the water not far from where we were prospecting, but since it was yawning a lot I don't think he was very interested in our activities Day 3 was a stop in Yaverland, here we found some hybodont remains and a possible pterosaur tooth ( we will know for sure after the prep ), in the afternoon we went a bit further to Whiteclif bay where we found a few echinoids. Day 4 Back to those Wealden cliffs in search for dinosaur material, again in vain, but we did se al those impresive Iguanodon foottracks at Hanover point. later on the day we tried to find the lobster bed near Atherfield, but only a few parts were accesible, but I found a nice big lobster in situ, it came out in a few pieces. I had super glue in my backpack, so I glued the parts back together and stuffed the fossil safely away in a box with soft paper. It is still in that box now, so I hope it wil still be ok when I start prepping it. Day 5: we had a meetup with a local colector to prospect the beaches on the north of the island, those were Oligocene deposits and we did find a lot of turtle fragments, a few croc scutes and even a few croc teeth Day 6: we had our ferry back to the mainland of the UK, from there we drove further to the jurassic coast. In the afternoon we went on the Beach between Dorset and Lyme Regis, but the beaches were full of tourists looking for fossils, so the finds were poor. Day 7: we visited Eype, and Golden cap, not far from Dorset, again verry few finds due to overprospected beaches, but we did find a decent ammonite. In the evening We visited the town of Lyme Regis and the birthplace of Mary Anning Day 8: this time e went east of Dorset, still very few fossils to be seen, but still multiple good belemnites , some of them still in the matrix. Day 9: time to pack the tent and drive back to Dover, we still had time before taking our ferry back to France so we did a quick stop in Folkestone. 2 hours of prospecting in the gault clay did deliver 2 decent ammonites and lots of ammonite fragments, belemnites and inoceramus shells. I didnt take a lot of pictures of the fossils we found yet, but we took a few ones in the field. more pictures will follow when we start unpacking and prepping the fossils from this week. Shipping to Dover: vieuw on the camping from Wight: of to the beach: no fossils to be seen Lots of beach to prospect: Still looking for bone in the shingle: sunset on Wight: to the cenomanian chalk: ammonites the Sealion: possible pterosaur tooth: footprints Oligoceene deposits: A vieuw on Wight before we leave: Dorset and Lyme regis: Ammonites everywhere Mary Anning:
  4. Isle of Wight jaw?

    My nephew spotted this down at Compton bay on the Isle of Wight. Sorry about the poor photos. The area is early Cretaceous wealden. The fossil is about 1.5-2cm long. Not sure what it could be but hoping it could be some sort of jaw. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Many thanks.
  5. Dinosaur bone, wealden, uk

    Just wondering if there is enough of this bone to make it identifiable? I assume its the proximal section of a rib, but just checking if it could be part of a fibula or tibia? From the weald clay of sussex UK. Barremian . Thanks in advance. Henry
  6. Here is one of my latest finds, a very big Lepidotes! I think my heart missed a beat when I first spotted this and turned it over as it was lying on its back! It is a rare three dimensional fish fossil. It's nice to have the pectoral fin preserved. I prepped some of the front teeth out, and they are very large. Still a lot of prep work left to do on this one.
  7. It is a vertebra for sale as baryonyx, is it?
  8. Cone from Isle of Wight wealden

    I picked up this pair of flattened cones from the wealden clay at Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, uk last weekend. I couln’t find a similar hexagonal pattern from photos online or in the books I have on the area. Given the size and shape (roughly 3cm), I was wondering if they may be araucarian? The area is barremian. It’s also in very soft clay, so I’m currently trying to dry it slowly wrapped in damp tissue before adding paraloid with acetone to stabilise it. If a better method is advisable, I would really appreciate any advise. Thanks in advance henry
  9. Barry tooth

    So on the popular auction site their is a ‘Barry’ tooth for sale would like to add to my other one since this appears better condition but I can’t tell from the pictures what I think about it. any input??
  10. This is a great fossil forum. A wealth of information. Lots to educate the passionate collector. I want to share a few more of my latest finds with members of this fossil forum. I hope you all enjoy the pics. These are some of my best discoveries made in my Hastings Wealden bonebed collection this past week. First off is this lovely Dromaeosaurid tooth. It took me a few hours, but I managed to prep out both sides. My best find in a while.
  11. Firstly, my apologies if I am posting this in the wrong section of the website. I had a lovely morning searching down at Cooden Beach, Sussex uk. Very cold, very early start, setting off in the dark at 6am to get there for sunrise. After 3 hours of fruitless searching, and ready to give up, I came across this hybodus shark skull, showing the first few vertebrae. Cartilage doesn’t fossilise too well here, so looks a bit messy. As pleased as I am with it, I can’t help thinking the remaining section of the nodule was hiding nearby, but I just couldn’t find it. I’ll head back over there in a few weeks and look for the rest of it! If anyone finds it before me please get in contact and I’ll make an offer! thanks Henry
  12. Valdosaurus? tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    A tiny (scale 1 mm) tooth from Wealden beds, Valanginian, Early Cretaceous. Unfortunately, can't get a better quality picture, but it highly resembles small ornithopod teeth.
  13. Wealden bone

    An unidentified bone-like specimen from Wealden supergroup, Hastings subgroup (Cretaceous, Valanginian). Scalebar 1 cm. Looks like a medium-size reptile bone, but which bone and which reptile (if it actually is a reptile)? Any help would be very appreciated.
  14. Wealden turtle or fish scale?

    Hi Is this turtle or fish scale? Size: near 1,7 cm x near 1,1 cm
  15. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi guys; I have recently been treated to a nice week down the Isle of Wight and having spent the first day down in Yaverland today I though I would share some of my finds. 1) these both appear to be Vertebra, I'm assuming they are dinosaur as I'm preatty sure I've read somewhere that crocodiles have concave and convex ends to their Vertebra but may be totally of base with that assumption.
  16. I found this tooth while searching my collection of Sussex Wealden, Hastings bone bed. Similar to the small size ornithopod dinosaur Hypsilophodon premaxilla teeth, but this species can be ruled out. It is more similar to the small ornithopod Echinodon, Purbeck beds, Dorset premaxilla teeth. The crown is smooth and asymmetrical. The root curls up at the end, similar to some Iguanodon teeth in original early illustrations of the Iguanodon species. I prepped the tooth out completely from the matrix. Tooth is very small being 5mm long. Can anyone help me with identification of this tooth?
  17. Hi All, I picked this up online because it looked unusual. After looking at it under the microscope, I'm thinking part of a fish skull or jaw. Any thoughts?
  18. Cretaceous Turtle. Wealden, Uk.

    I was so pleased to find this in the Weald Clay, UK. Not sure if it's "all that", but one of my favourite ever finds. It's is a fairly squashed turtle, and has a fair bit of the carapace, and the majority of the plastron. It needs a bit of prep, especially the underside. From a bit of research I suspect it is from the genus Brodiechelys, but would love to hear any other suggestions. Also, if anyone could suggest a professional prepper in the south of england I'd be most grateful, as I don't trust myself to undertake it. Many thanks Henry
