  2. December 2019 - Finds of the Month Entries

    I like it as well! Beautifully preserved!
  3. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    Thanks and I will do that tonight and see how they come out.
  4. Is this an Angustidens shark tooth?

    Agreed. The side cusps seem more separate and outward pointing which would indicate an O. obliquus and not the younger C. auriculatus. As this older species is commonly found (and available) from Morocco, I assume this was a purchased tooth and not a personal find. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/87071-shark-teeth/&do=findComment&comment=944193 Cheers. -Ken

    Far more glamorous than a trilobite if you ask me. Gorgeous specimen.
  6. Hmmm...looks alright to me. Cheers. -Ken
  7. The Growing Collection of Ziggycardon

    My latest items which arrived this weekend! A fossil which was on top of my wishlist, a walrus jaw (Odobenus rosmarus) found in Het Scheur, North Sea, Belgium (Pleistocene, 40 000 years old) I've been wanting some North Sea walrus material for quite some time! Another fossil which has been on my wishlist for a time was a Gotland trilobite. This one is a Asaphus sp. found in Gotland, Sweden (Silurian, 420 mya) A Rhynchonella sp. brachiopod, found in found in Immouzzer, Morrocco (Cretaceous, 120 mya) A small gold nugget found in the Tintana Gold Province, Alaska, USA
  8. That’s great mate and that another Santa delivery checked off. It is nice to open it on Christmas Day i think When I get some deliveries form the USA sometimes when checking the tracking number it says address can’t be found, I now know this means they did not have time to deliver it on that day and the next the delivery arrives . It would be less stressful if they just said the truth. All the best Bobby
  9. Orthospirifer marcyi (Hall,1857) (Brachiopod) Middle Devonian (398 to 385 million years ago) Moscow formation New York Found 9/2019 prepped 12/3/2019 We find maybe 4 or 5 of these large spirifers a season and usually, due to their shape and size, they are found in poor condition. This fully inflated specimen is the exception to what we normally find. Because it was a rare find, we had to send it out to be properly prepared under a microscope using an air scribe so the fine details of the shell would be revealed. The matrix I was told was difficult to blast through and I said yeah, that's why I sent it to you. It might not be glamorous like a trilobite but finding this species of brach in this condition is very rare for my sites/area. So finding this was as thrilling as finding a complete/rare trilobite to me. Thanks
  10. Let's see your latest mailbox score!

    Got these in the mail over the past weekend An Asaphus sp. trilobit found in Gotland, Sweden (420 mya) A gold nugget found in the Tintana Gold Province, Alaska, USA A Rhynchonella sp. brachiopod found in Immouzzer, Morrocco (120 mya) A walrus jaw (Odobenus rosmarus) found in Het Scheur, North Sea, Belgium (40 000 years old)
  11. ??? fossil

    Very nice and interesting finds.
  12. Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!

    I think you are probably correct. It has the right general shape to be Halicyne. Can you take a few more pictures at different angles?
  13. Not me, that's for sure. So wifey has already run off with my parcel and hidden it til Christmas Day.
  14. It wasn't as simple as I thought, but after three hours of faffing about this morning, I have got my Secret Santa gift. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Colissimo who are linked here to Chronopost. Neither will deliver to the 9,600 streets of Fes medina and the message that they had attempted a delivery is simply not true. And nobody has a clue what Mechfes is. Never mind. Got it now. Thanks for your help, Doren.
  15. Today
  16. Is this an Angustidens shark tooth?

    This looks like an Otodus obliquus from Morocco. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=otodus+obliquus+shark+tooth&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8
  17. Allosaurus

    +1 for strange fossil rule
  23. Definitely does not look like amazing fossil but it is incredible rare in the U.K. it is part of an old museum collection, a tip of a tusk from a Straight Tusk Elephant (Palaeoloxodon antiquus) . From the the Middle and Late Pleistocene found in Tornewton cave Devon UK. On a very silly stand I made.
  24. ??? fossil

    +1 for rudist. mabey @FranzBernhard can tel you something more about them.
  25. Fish skull bone. Any guesses on species?

    I think narrowing it down any further than "unidentified fish operculum" would be a fairly difficult task.
  26. Tooth ID requested

    + 1 for Dolphin tooth.
