  1. I've spent a fair amount of time now combing the beaches around Lyme Regis and Charmouth in Dorset, England, and thought i would put together a topic that presents all of my marine reptile bone finds (so far) in one place. The fossils here are Early Jurassic in age, approx. 195-190 million years old and come predominantly from the Blue Lias and Charmouth Mudstone formations. I first visited this area in 2013 with the simple goal of finding at least one ichthyosaur vertebra, and now after three subsequent trips in 2014, 2017 and 2019, i've put together a far better assortment of finds than i co

    Baryonyx vertebra?

    Hello, I’m wondering if this is actually a Baryonyx vertebra. It was found in Wealden formation, Sussex England.

    Found at Kettleness UK

    Good morning, I was searching the beach and found these! Please could you help me identify whether these are fossils or not? I'm an amateur so I don't have any tools. I've also added at the bottom some pics of ammonites and a belemnite I found

    Found on a beach, English east coast

    Good day all, hope everyone is well and having a great day. To start, I have absolutely no clue about anything fossil related. I was just curious as to what this was, there isn’t anything big and scary in England with teeth this large so it’s just strange to me, it’s probably nothing so I am sorry if it’s obvious. It was found on a beach that fossil hunters say is fairly notorious for just sharks teeth but even I know this isn’t from a shark. Thank you for any help

    Fossil in slab?

    Hi. I work in a garden centre. We have spotted this on one of the slabs we sell and we were wondering if it was a fossil. If so, what is it?
  6. I found these two stones on a beach on the southern coast of England, and they seem to have fossils embedded in them. I'm not sure what they could be, can someone here help me identify them?
  7. Hi there, I would like any help on identifying this potential fossil I found. It was found in West Midlands of England, UK. I don't live near the ocean however this was found amongst a pathway covered in pre-destructed rocks so it may explain the displacement. As you can see, it appears quite mollusc-like and it has tiny bristles on the right hand side, almost saw-toothed at the edge. It also can be seen with a bottom layer with appears on the left hand side of the rock. It is striped and has red speckles at the edge. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm quite inexperience

    object in tunnel in flint

    Went to Ruxton England looking for my own mammoth. Brought home some large rocks instead. Not sure what to make of the orange inclusion in this piece of flint. The whole flint is about 3 by 5 inches with multiple rough spotty enclusions There is significant discussion as to what these flints represent, one concept involves the death and collapse of glass sponges as in: https://www.flint-paramoudra.com/flint-nodules.html Is it a dying glass sponge, a worm and worm burrow, or something else entirely. Help will be appreciated, thanks

    Crinoid(?) from the Cotswolds, UK.

    I was just milling about, splitting Cotswold stone, when this caught my eye. In my swimming seas of gastropods, echinoids, crinoids, brachiopods, and bivalves, I've never come across anything like this! If anyone could shed some light, I would be much obliged. Early Oxfordian in ages, found in the Ancholme group. Around it were these fragmented plates of molluscs. It looks like a crushed stem of perhaps a crinoid? If it requires better photos, I can crack out the old camera and take a few! Cheers, Isaac

    Help to ID this Dudley trilobite

    Hiya everyone I recently purchased this trilobite from Dudley, any help with the species and help with the other species on the matrix would be great, thanks.

    Tiny tooth from the Cotswolds, UK

    Hi all! Most of you will know me as an invertebrate person, but, recently, I found something that may change my view! I was splitting some Jurassic Cotswold limestone, and I found a tooth. A tiny tiny tooth, which I believe to be a shark(?). In other chunks of the matrix, I found scales, and other hints to vertebrate life. It heavily fluoresces under UV light, and has these gorgeous lines along the flat crown. To the bottom right of the tooth, there is a partial mold of a brachiopod, which is pretty cool! Ancholme Group, Callovian - Oxfordian (166.1 - 157.3 mya). As a sister questio
  12. Today is my 50th birthday so I wanted to select my fifty favorite fossil finds to present. But....because I am obsessive, I couldn't settle on just 50. So here's 150. My favorite 150 fossil finds. And there's still more - but then it would be 250 or 555...I don't know. Anyways, enjoy. Mostly Texas, some from Utah, Florida, North Carolina, New York and England (denoted by the state initials or UK). Almost all were found by me, except about 4 which were gifted to me. I did actually narrow it down to 50...initially. But then I had to do pages for the
  13. I have here a dinosaur bone from Isle of Wight, England. It's from the Wessex Formation, Cretaceous in age. It's around 1.5" x 1.5" How much credibility is there to the claim that this is a dinosaur vertebra? And if that's what it is, could be be narrowed down? Thank you, Bellamy

    England Ammonites

    I picked up 3 ammonites last summer and was told they were from England, but with no additional information such as age or locality :(. I'm hoping someone out here might be able to help me ID them to genus or perhaps even have ideas as to where they originate. #1
  15. Sadly, this is something I don't have any provenance on. I think its probably from the Inferior Oolite of Dorset or at least South England. It came in a job lot of other Ammonites and I didn't pay it too much attention until I saw a small inclusion - around 3.5MM round. I've taken some photos with my digital 'microscope', and some with my camera too. You can spot the odd fella at the end furthest away from the flat cut base. I'm sure this is nothing; I haven't seen anything quite like it before though. I am curious if anyone has any ideas - I haven't seen anything sim

    Jurassic Tubular Structure

    Hey all! Throughout my many years collecting from around the Cotswolds, there has always been one constant: these weird, tubular structures. Originally, I thought them to be corals, when I was much younger. More recently, I have IDd them as the ichnofossils of a Serpulidae. If anyone could confirm or disregard this ID, I would be very thankful!
  17. In short, I'm trying to figure out exactly what was on the menu: fish or cephalopods. While sorting through some Oxford Clay fish coprolites, I came across this specimen. It was part of a batch purchased years ago. I must have just assumed the inclusions were fish vertebrae, but now I'm not too sure. I know some vertebrae from some fish fry can be hollow, but the texture/material of these inclusions look very different from anything I've seen (including vertebrae in Oxford Clay coprolites). Because of the color and layers, I'm thinking these may be chitinous. That said, I haven't s
  18. An absolute monster of a jaw section I recently prepped from the Yorkshire coast. Only a partial so shows how big it would have been. This is actually part of another block I’m currently working on, containing another section of jaw along with a tonne of other bone from the beast. There’s also a neural arch from a vertebrae sat in there too. The bigger block is not far off finished so I will post that once acid treatment is finished. Thanks for looking

    Teeth Everywhere

    Good afternoon everyone! Hit the beach this morning, big tides and strong winds had done a grand job of scouring out the cliffs and teeth littered the beach. The majority were Isurus, one baby Meg, few broken Otodus Obliquus and one Carcharodon Carcharias (showing faint striations) being the stand out teeth. Also found a couple of fish vertebrae and some ray plate chunks. One unknown tooth, any ideas on this one? It is a lot broader than the usual Isurus. Few photos of the beach showing the red crag cliffs with un

    Please help with some clues

    Hello, I found this inside a loose chalk boulder on the Eastbourne shore. Based on the colour of the chalk it appeared to be from the upper cliff levels, perhaps cretaceous levels.
  21. Hi guys. It's been a while as always when it comes to posting on here. Plenty of reason, too long to go into. I hope everybody is doing as well as they can be during this pandemic. Now onto the good stuff. A while back, I posted my phylloceras in a sorry state of affairs, sections missing everywhere, cracks everywhere. Basically it didn't look fantastic. You'll be able to find it somewhere on here from previous posts. Well, lockdown happened here in the uk, which means there was only one thing to do during this time, and that was to get to work in the workshop and finish a lot of stuff.
  22. Parkinsonia parkinsoni (ammonite) Jurassic, Upper inferior Oolite Bridport Dorset. UK 6.5" The first photos I took a few years ago did nothing for this unique specimen. I found it difficult capturing the details and still think they could be better. The ammonite has many chambers preserved in calcite that glow when backlit. Calcite crystals can be seen growing inside some of the empty chambers. Fossil, mineral, crystals, art, science, love Happy collecting.

    Storm Alex Finds

    After storm Alex hit this weekend, went out for an hour this morning to a deserted beach. Waves have been pushing against the cliffs and a few fresh falls are evident. First find was a partial Meg chunk. With a little bit of enamel left. Picked up a nice isurus by the fresh fall along with an Otodus tip. Lastly and without doubt the find of the day was this what I think is a Carcharodon Hastalis. 62mm making it the largest one I’ve found. It has some wonderful blue colours to it that the phot

    Lyme Regis Brachiopods

    While looking at one of the shells in my collection that i had originally thought was a bivalve, from the stretch of beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, in Dorset (UK), another glance made me realize it is in fact a brachiopod: symmetry in plan view, asymmetrically sized valves in lateral view. So i dug out my British Mesozoic Fossils book and have identified it confidently as Cincta numismalis, which the book lists as occurring within the "Jamesoni Zone" of the Lower Lias at Radstock in Somerset. I am not familiar with the brachiopods of the Lower Lias at Lyme Regis in Dorset, but a
  25. By measuring tooth growth rings and bone blood vessels in small Jurassic mammal fossils, scientists determined that small mammals lived for 9 to 14 years back then while similarly sized mammals today would live for 1 to 3 years. https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/10/12/world/mammal-teeth-reptile-intl-scli-scn-gbr/index.html
