  1. Ichthyosaur Vertebra

  2. Dactylioceras

    From the album Yorkshire Ammonites

    A lovely Dactylioceras specimen, these are the most commonly found ammonites here.
  3. Saltwick Bay find

    Found this little thing this morning while rummaging in the shale on Saltwick Bay. First thought was just a small piece of belemnite, but one side is concave and the other is convex, so not sure what it could be (if anything at all) Can anyone shed any light on it? For those unfamiliar with the area the beaches are awash with belemnites, ammonites and bivalves. Ichthyosaurs are occasionally found here too. Thanks in advance
  4. I was able to fit in some prospecting for new sites while the missus had a week off from work. Obviously I couldn’t monopolize all the vacation as the main purpose was to visit a relative and lounge on a beach. Regularly accessible and productive Ordovician sites in Ontario are few and far between, mostly relegated these days to the biannual trip to the quarry in Bowmanville, or to the creeks around the greater Toronto area (GTA). Trilobite collecting in Ontario is massively curtailed by a confluence of factors sadly common in so many other areas: development, quarries that no longer permit access (even to clubs), laws governing protected areas, and over-collecting. We have a rich abundance of trilobites in Ontario, just as in New York, but accessible sites remain a problem. This means defaulting to the traditional method of prospecting new potential areas, and even putting a hard shoulder into shovelling a lot of soil to expose bedrock. This means smaller areas that are more easily exhausted. A pic of our haul from the two spots:
  5. Whitby fossil id

    This is another fossil I found on the beach near Whitby a few years ago. I have a couple of ideas but don’t want to appear stupid given all the experts on this forum
  6. Today i caught on my camera a lovely dactylioceras nodule opening. Hope you enjoy, it's quite satisfying opening them but they don't always open like this. Probably one or two in 10.
  7. Tonight, I started a block that iv had for quite some time, and being dying to prep. Annoyingly, the split from the nodule was very poor, cause a few different cracks, all the way through the ammonite. I glued this back up two days ago and let it set before starting prep. I couldn’t wait to get home from work today, so I could begin the real work. Prep photos to follow in the comments as I can’t size down these files any more
  8. After so many people showing an Interest in the Golden Cannonball Nodule, I though I’d start a thread to document my Yorkshire finds and prep, be they ammonites, bone, or what ever else. Hope you all enjoy
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Harpoceras Exaratun Upper Lias Jet rock. Whitby North Yorkshire .
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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?
  24. 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..
