@FF7_Yuffie nice pieces, funny thing is, I was looking at all of them apart from the hell creek teeth^_^ even put an early bid in on the pterosaur! It’s a very uncommon tooth

 

Thanks.

 

I'm surprised I won it to be honest, I was expecting it to shoot up while I was in bed. I'm very pleased to add it to my collection, I love pterosaurs :)

The serrations are incredible! It's even weighted slightly.

Nice even more special now that the orginal has been sold

November seems to be a Helicoprion month this year it seems :) Great specimen, thought I'd share mine. Came from an old collection after it was discovered in the early 1930's.

I was just looking at helicoprion stuff today! Amazing specimen I would love to have one of these in my collection some day

Yesterday I received two packets. First one is related to Xmas gift event, the other one was sent by my friend Sophie from France. A nice collection of Upper Oxfordian marine fauna, including a sponge, which I didn't have at all. 

 

Out of all, I fell in love with these three, especially with the Cretirhynchia. Such a beautiful brachipod. 

 

Thank you Sophie!! 

:b_love1::brachiopod:

 

 

great stuff! If it’s from the secret Santa, don’t forget to post it there!:)

No that one opens tomorrow! I will do so. 

Your beautiful fish resembles a lot with an extant though endangered species of a Cichlid again from Madagascar, Paratilapia polleni.

I think with some salt and vinegar they’d go quite nicely:P

I received my Secret Santa from @fifbrindacier, exciting! She was very generous with material I didn't have, mostly from France. The highlight was a gorgeous amphibian footprint, my first footprint. There was an adorable ammonite plushie too! Thank you :D

I always love those French footprints--they're really nice fossils.
 

Cute ammonite too--was it handmade by fifbrandacier? It's adorable.

This is a tyrannosaurid indet. tooth from the Judith River formation. It is 1.6 inches long. I'm happy to finally have a member of T. rex's family to my collection. :trex:

You should not reveal who your secret Santa was ! Because in the consecrated subject we can no longer play to find him !  :DOH: :shakehead: :default_faint:
