  1. 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!)
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. Short little video i made opening a nodule. It popped out perfectly.
  8. 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?
  9. At over 4" across, this is the last few chambers of by far the largest diameter belemnite phragmocone I've ever seen. (If anyone has one from a Megateuthis, I'd love to see it! - they don't seem ever to be preserved.) Given to me by a friend, it is in a nodule from the Jet Rock (Upper Lias, Lower Jurassic) of Port Mulgrave, north Yorkshire coast. It must have belonged to an exceptionally large Acrocoelites trisulculosus which is probably the only belemnite to occur in this bed. It's a large species anyway - typical rostra of it are 5 - 7" long but about 9" has very rarely been recorded so a bit longer may be possible. Photo 6: Not having such a large Acrocoelites in my collection, I've done a conservative mock-up of it with a smallish (9") Megateuthis and another piece of phragmocone which is my second largest... A total length of 20 - 24" seems about right. Photo 7: For comparison , I have a complete but crushed example of A. trisulculosus about 12" long, the rostrum being 6.5". 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) This should probably be stretched more... 7) A normal size Acrocoelites trisulculosus with crushed phragmocone (the strange ridged structure on top of it is a crushed on-edge Harpoceras shell mouth)
  10. Saw this awesome item online and won the auction. Very interesting rock from the Whitby area in Yorkshire. i'm wondering what the bones are. I know the ammonite is a Oxynoticeras. I was guessing Ichthyosaur but maybe someone can give me a better ID? Maybe it's Gyrosteus fish bones
  11. Hello everyone, I've recently been put in charge of emptying a fossil collectors secondary collection (the non-prepped fossils he collected himself in the sixties and seventies). I found several plates hidden underneath a built-in aquarium inside a wall, see pictures attached. They seem to be flattened shale ammonites from Whitby, and they seem to be flaking. I guess because they were being used as a crutch to keep the aquarium in place. Is there any emergency prepping, maybe a coating of somesort I can do to keep these plates from flaking any further? Or maybe some tips to safely transport them? I've already moved crates full of smaller plates, but these are very large and unstable. I'm a hobbiest fossil hunter and I've never prepped a plate like this, so any help is welcome. I only have 6 days left to move and secure these plates in one piece. If not moved by then, they will be dumped in a thrash container :(. Thank you in advance!
  12. Big ammonite found in Whitby

    Hi all I found a large piece of an ammonite at Whitby, the whole thing would of been more than a foot across. Would be great if I could get what species of ammo it is. Thanks for looking.
  13. New Fossil Book

    Just sharing my new book that has just been delivered. Reading up for my trips next year
  14. This was my first ever fossil. It was gifted to me about 10-15 years ago, but i've noticed it now has crusty stuff around it. I don't think it was there before. Is this normal, will it get worse and should i be worried?
  15. Lake Ontario finds, Whitby ON

    Some recent finds from Lake Ontario, East of Toronto. Unknown Graptolites Lots of fragments Bivalve
  16. My ichthyosaurus collection

    Here is my small ichthyosaur collection. I keep all my fossils in 19th century draws as it fits with our living room which is a Victorian cabinet of curiosities or Wunderkammer. Paddle basioccipital
  17. Please could someone id this fossil for me found at Whitby UK. The piece is approx 5x5x4 cm Thank you.
  18. ID ammonite

    Hi all I can please have an ID on this ammonite. I think it is pseudolioceras but I don't what species. It was found in Whitby. Thanks Bobby
  19. This Ichthyosaur fossil has just arrived in the mail, i won it at auction. It comes from Whitby in the UK. There are no repairs. On the last photo attached on top of the Vert, is this a rib bone possibly?
  20. Please help ID my find

    Hi please help me Identify my find, this was found near whitby Yorkshire, it looks similar to my ammonite collection but I never seen one with a closed end before so I'm stump to what it is, thanks Mike
  21. Hi, stumbled on this with the kids. We are all curious as to what it could have been, of anything at all. Really know nothing at all and probably sound silly, but best guess is ammonites? Or is it something completely different, if ever organic? Thanks in advance James
  22. Help please

    Hi we found this in the beach in Staithes. We thought it looked a bit like a clam, can anyone confirm this for us? Thanks. E.
  23. Saurorhynchus acutus (Agassiz, 1844) rostropremaxilla. Lower Jurassic, Mulgrave Shale Member (bed 42), Falciferum Subzone. Near Whitby, Yorkshire. I spotted this little fish rostrum when I was looking for belemnites a couple of weeks ago. It was about to flake off the outcrop and I hadn't found anything else interesting so I brought it home as a consolation prize. After some research, it seems it's very rare here. The only recorded specimens I can find are a few (5?) 19th century ones, including the holotype which is also just a jaw. Other workers at the time (Tate & Blake) doubted their Yorkshire provenance, assuming them to have been from the Dorset Lower Lias, sold by dealers - a similar species is quite well known from there. Here's a very recent paper: Saurorhynchus revision. It is a lot more common in Germany, with more complete material. I prepped its hidden teeth today - 5 hours with a scalpel under a x20 binocular microscope. I think an air abrader would have blown them away. As found:
  24. Bone from Whitby area?

    I was on a trip to yorkshire coast, picked this up at runswick bay in amongst the boulders. Apparently it's one of the best areas for bones. It looks like a bone to me, i want it to be a bone! Is it a bone?
  25. The phragmocone is partly in a nodule, the rostrum protruding from it - quite rare in these beds. It has the remains of an epirostrum. Assigned to Megateuthis in Doyle 1990, The British Toarcian Belemnites. Contentious taxonomy down the years - diagnostic features include the pair of dorsolateral apical grooves. Similar specimens of Acrocoelites sp. are supposed to have an additional ventral groove but this is variable ...
