Last find from Portugal, will have to wait couple of months to be able to search for more due to summer heat... would love to identify this fossil, was found in a miocene deposit in Lisbon.

Found these huge guys last year, were broken in lots of pieces but after some few hours of repair they look great. Found these at Torres Vedras DinoLand Beaches. would be great to know the dinosaur... any guess??

 

 

Very nice collection marine and dinosaur.  Love the Jaw.   You can post the dinosaur vertebrae in the ID forum with multiple images and size to try to obtain some idea of what they are.     They may be from a sauropod and several have been described from the Lourinhã Formation off the coast.  It's not possible to ID to a specific dinosaur.

VFOTM?

Not found in this month, is too late.

But it is a nice fossil nonetheless.

Very nice!   :envy:

I am envious of anyone who can collect ammonites, especially in such quantities.  :)
