Hiya. Wondering is anyone able to help a novice fossil hunter! I've been looking at lavernock point again in South Wales. Found this (what I assume is a type of fossil) embedded in a stone. Looks different to the usual amonite fragments, bivale/shell ones we usually find. Wondering if anyone could help identify it please xx

I am thinking it is a barnacle shell bit, but not sure.

Can You post a picture of the end?

What is the size?

I think you might have found a bit of Hydodus spine ( Humped tooth shark)

The one pictured is from Avon, UK.

It's around 6cm long & at widest 3cm. I think your probably right it is a shell as there a so many of them there, just not seen one like that before. It won't let me upload any more pics x

Caldigger that is pretty cool if it was something like that. I thought it looked more bone like compared to the shell fossils we normally find. Avon is only across the water from whrre we were too. Thanks x

Caldigger is probably right.
