Fossil ID please, U.K. Jurassic coast

Recommended Posts

Hello, please excuse my lack of knowledge in this area. This is the first time we’ve ever hunted for fossils and while we have collected a lot of lovely ones we can identify, these we’re not sure of. 
they were found at charmouth and seatown in the U.K. we’ve started trying to use an engraver on the stone, we’re guessing ammonite?

That does look like an ammonite in the pale rock, but even if you manage to prep it out it looks like part of it has been worn away.

 

Top right looks like a nice pair of vertebrae, possibly ichthyosaur; nice find!

 

Not sure about the other two

Thanks for such a speedy reply! Ok will bare that in mind when I carry on with the pale rock. We have a lovely ammonite already so this one is more of an experiment.

Always best to practice your prep on something you won’t be upset at ruining!

What are you using? A rotary tool such as a Dremel?
