  1. ID from Yorkshire coast

    Found this fragment from Whitby area, at first I thought it was a flattened belamnite but wonder if it's in fact a tooth. Any ideas?
  2. Current Prep Thread

    So, what do we all havecurrently on the prep table? Be interesting to see what challenges await everybody. My current piece is this bone block, most likely ichthyosaur rib. A few scattered ammonites from the genus Dactylioceras sp. if expecting to probably found more bone further in all being well, probably a vert or two and some more ribs.
  3. A little Psuedoglyphea sp. from the Whitby mudstone formation, found at Sandsend near Whitby. A rather rare find due to the carapace and mandibles all being there. Usually you find the odd mandible or legs. It sits proudly in my collection already, and it’s not even been prepped yet. Next month it’s being sent off to be professionally prepped
  4. Here’s one of my rarer finds. Maybe not for the genus itself, but the size. I found this right when I very first started collecting, I took it home, and glued it up. A few months back I was having a clear up, and found it in a draw, not remembering what it what. I then popped it open again to see what was inside, as you can see, it was quite the mess, and was definitely a reverse prepper. Aroun 8 hours later and here she is in all her glory. A 4 inch Pseudolioceras Boulbiense. A rather rare size, usually they come around 2 inches at the most. Hope you all enjoy
  5. Whitby Hildoceras Prep

    A little Hildoceras I picked up recently from Saltwick Bay in Whitby. Unfortunately I didn’t take any before pictures to show. All that was showing was the top of the keel and a small portion of the outer whorl. It’s be no means finished yet, but thought people might enjoy the process so far. Iv prepped out some of the matrix underneath to give the ammonite a floating effect.
  6. I had a great day fossil hunting yesterday! I found my first crocodile vert! Which are even rarer than ichthyosaur verts on the yorkshire coast! Then i found articulated 4 and a half icthyosaur verts! With 3 neurals, will polish up great! It had been a very slow month for finds then i have a fantastic day like this
  7. Pseudolioceras.

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Pseudolioceras lythense Whitby, Yorkshire, UK
  8. Dactylioceras commune

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Dactylioceras commune Whitby Formation, Lower Jurassic; Yorkshire coast uk best one I have found with its pinpoint center
  9. Harpoceras Exaratun

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

  10. Harpoceras Exaratun

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Harpoceras Exaratun Upper Lias Jet rock. Whitby North Yorkshire .
  11. I just made a video of some of my finds over the past 3 months, lots of times when i find things i forget to film them on the beach so i've not included those!
  12. Ichthyosaur

    Hello, A recent find of ours. I've been told by someone knowledgeable in this area that it's a Disarticulated lower Ichthyosaur jaw ( the long bones on the back) It's been scavenged after death so everything is scattered. On the otherside are other bones, shells and what look to be 5 teeth. Other Side with Teeth Close up of what look to be teeth, I've circled them in red.
  13. Eleganticeras Multiblock

    A few months back, I spent three days along the Whitby coastline. It was a very good three days of collecting, but my last find of them days, is to this day my best find. I had decided to head to Runswick Bay. My legs and back were exhausted, so decided the short walk to to car park would be fairly light on the legs. Now, in my experience, Runswick hasn’t really produced much in the past for me, so I hadn’t gotten my hopes up too much. So you can imagine my shock, when I see a rather large nodule day there in Situ. I’ll let the pictures say the rest
  14. It’s been a long time since I posted here. So here’s a thanks to everybody that’s helped me out in the past on here. It’s seriously appreciated. So. Here’s a lovely 6 inch Hildoceras I found recently at Kettleness, I’m the Yorkshire coast. She’s a beauty. A few of the outer whorl chambers are a little crush, but it just adds to the piece of think
  15. Thinking of popping up to Whitby or Scarborough next week although the conditions for finds I'm assuming haven't been great given the serene conditions down south. How have conditions been on the Yorkshire coast?
  16. Ichthyosaur Alert!

    I’ve been super excited to finally find my own marine reptile fossil and today i’ve done just that and i’m chuffed! Found this near Whitby in Yorkshire. Low tide was at about 6pm so I was waiting for the water to go out so I could get round. Lucky I was the first person. The vert is very waterworn and damaged, but Im not bothered. I’ve had my eye out for awhile and am very happy to find one, hopefully the first of many..
  17. I see honeycomb! Bone?

    I just found this down on the yorkshire coast. Is it bone? One side looks like bone the other looks slightly different.
  18. Please could anyone suggest what this is? I'm assuming fish, with little (less than 1mm) white spherules that might be teeth or denticles. From the Jet Rock (Mulgrave Shale Member) - a Lower Jurassic, Toarcian shale at least partly deposited in anoxic waters. Near Whitby, Yorkshire, UK. (Acquired in an auction as an extra with another fossil that I really wanted so I'm just curious really, I know little about fish!)
  19. Ammonite ID

    Finds have been really low recently because of all the good weather and people visiting beach more? or i just suck! I found this today near Whitby. Is it a Peronoceras?
  20. Mystery to me

    Any help identifying what these are would be very much appreciated. I have found a few trilobites, bivalves, among others in the Whitby Formation on the shore of Lake Ontario. I'm just really unsure of what these could be. Thank you in advance.
  21. Today i visited saltwick bay, the beach right next to famous Whitby. I parked at the holiday park at the top, had a cup of tea and made my way down the steep steps. The beach is great, good for dog walking and fossil collecting! The cliffs are massive and the pictures do not do it justice to show how large they are. It is also constantly eroding even while i was stood there. So it’s probably wise to spend as little time under them as possible. It’s rarther scary really. I had lots of great finds, my favorite find of the day is the hildoceras on the left. Others included multiple ammonite nodules and a Belemnite phragmocone. Another great place to come if you’re in the area!
  22. Yorkshire Tide

    I'm heading to Whitby tomorrow for a week of relaxation and fossil hunting around the multiple beaches. Is it recommended to arrive an hour after low tide? I'll be spending 3-4 hours each day there max. I don't want to waste time waiting for the tide to go back out before i start collecting if possible.
  23. Fossil ID Required

    These little guys are super common when you break open the shale, along the banks of Lake Ontario, East of Toronto, in Whitby. I have scoured the internet trying to find what this can be, however the only other picture I found was on someones Blog with no identification. Any help would be appreciated, I'm so interested and this fossil hunting/identification may become a new hobby Thank you, Georgie
  24. Short little video i made opening a nodule. It popped out perfectly.
  25. I bought a bunch of nodules to practice with my hammer and chisel. This one seems to have two different ammonites in it, or is it just one fat one?
