  1. Hi, I have here a Dragonfly fossil from Germany. The fossil itself is just over 3". How would I tell if it's authentic? Thank you, Bellamy

    Germany builds a T-Rex for the US

    I just stumbled upon this news and find it kind of weird, that a german museum puts together an original T-Rex for someone from the USA. Does anyone have any information on this specimen? why not give it to an US Museum? Too expensive maybe? I mean shipping it to Germany and back to the USA wont be cheap. CLICK Article is only in German, but Google Translate does the job. (in the picture, the T-Rex that is standing here in front of the bones is Rocky, the Museums own original T-Rex) Here is a tour through the muse

    What on earth could this be???

    I visited my favorite shark tooth site today and came up with a couple of nice ones. But that's not the reason why I'm posting this time. This item here came out of exactly the same layer where I find most of my good shark teeth, but I have absolutely no idea what it is . It's from the Miocene Burdigalian exposure in the Lake of Constance area which I've been visiting for a few years, but I've never found anything like it here or anywhere else for that matter. I've not only found shark and ray teeth, bivalves and bryozoans here, but also the occasional rare land mammal tooth, so the layer was

    German Shark Teeth

    I bought a set of shark teeth from the Eocene of Fürstenau, Germany. I have some pretty decent shots of them, though these are the only photographs available for now. 1 cm - 3.5 cm is the range Really I have no idea on species, and nor does the seller. Some appear to be sand tigers, and indeed upon researching the locality those are described from there. Others from that locality include Otodus auriculatus and Isurus praecursor, and those were the ones I was really after. And while I cannot seem to see any of the former, I do believe a few are Praecursor. I'm attaching

    Salvinia sp.

    The Rott fossil Fossillagerstätte (Rott district of the town of Hennef) is a limnic deposit of Upper Oligocene fossils known in paleontology because of the richness and exceptionally good preservation of fossil plants and animals. Although the site was already designated as a natural monument in 1942, a golf course was built on the former mine site in 1986. Reference: Heinrich Winterscheid, Zlatko Kvaček, Jiří Váña, and Michael S.Ignatov (2018): Systematic-taxonomic revision of the flora from the late Oligocene Fossillagerstätte Rott near Bonn (Germany).

    ID German Trilobite

    Hi everybody! This time i kindly ask your help to identify a little gift a friend of mine give to me last weekend. I really know nothing about german trilobites...i have no idea! Here are the info: Origin: Eifel, Germany Age: Devonian (probably Middle...Eifelian? Givetian?) Lenght: 8.5 cm / 3.35 inches Cephalon Width (max): 4.8 cm / 1.9 inches I'm thankful to everyone who wants to participate at the topic Have a wonderful weekend!
  10. My Jurassic Park now heads across the pond to England and Germany. Dinosaur material from these countries is not common like North America and in fact very difficult to obtain. Theropod material is extremely rare and most remains are fragments. Most of my material from England comes from the coast of two areas The Isle of Wight and East Sussex. Material from these area comprises the Wealden Super Group (Hasting+Wealden+Weld Clay) and is early Cretaceous from the Valanginian to Barremian Stage (140-125mya). Yellow - Hasting Group , Green - Weald Clay Red - Wealden Grouip
  11. Upper Campanian foraminifera from Northern Germany. We found in the quarry of Laegerdorf near Hamburg. We think it is a Lituola. What's your opinion ? It is agglutinated and the specimens have such areal, multiple openings. See more of our finds at https://foraminifera.eu/loc.php?locality=Laegerdorf+Neue+Heidestrasse

    Fossil hunting near Hamburg Germany?

    My son is moving to Hamburg Germany and I was wondering if there were any sites where he can hunt for fossils? He likes fish fossils, but I am hoping he might find his father a few nice shark teeth. Are there fees and permits required? Can he send fossils out of the country? Any fossil shops in or near Hamburg?
  13. My youngest needed to make some measurments at my other property so I decided to go with him. I needed to find a certain fossil in my fossil shed. Didn't find it. I did find some other rather interesting stuff though. I call this stuff 'chicken scratch'. This is actually a nice one. Some get so messy its hard to tell what is what. This is actually a common gastropod but a very rare gastropod at the same time. We locals called them 'moonines'. Here you can see that it was murdered by another gastropod!!!
  14. Most pythons live in the Southern hemisphere but they may have evolved in Europe. Beautiful German fossil yields clues. https://www.livescience.com/oldest-python-snakes-on-record.html

    tanystropheus tooth

    Hello, any thoughts on this ? it is sold as tanystropheus tooth from Middle Triassic deposits of Wurzburg, Germany. 17mm in length. Edit: Formation is Muschelkalk. Hope it checks out. I've always had a fondness for long neckes tanystropheus. I see nothosaur teeth look similar, but seem to be quite distinctly curved, so im hopeful this isnt as misidentified nothosaur. Thanks

    Mystery Solnhofen Tooth!

    I saw this tooth for sale recently, labeled as Pterosaur from Solnhofen, the tooth seems way too thick to be pterosaur, any thoughts? I'm thinking it might be fish, but I have no idea.
  17. Hi I was wondering what your opinions are on these if they're real or fake, or any work done on them ? There's two of them. Labeled as - Lacustrine Stromatolite colony's, no work done on them. First - from the Permian age, Lauterecken formation, Germany Second - from Oligocene age, Rhineland Germany

    Is the a Saccocoma?

    Hi all, I was playing with my poop a while back, as one does, and discovered a hidden treasure. I prepped out what I think is a nice little floating crinoid. It looks beefier than the Saccocoma in my collection. Can anyone verify that is what this is? Thanks a bunch!
  19. hello, i found this fossil in a quarry in sinspelt, eiffel, germany. it's 20 mm long and 8 mm wide. sadly it's missing the head. can anybody tell me what kind of animal it was? i would even be happy with the general name (like fish or maybe something else), don't need the exact species.
