    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr

    Just a normal Ammonite?

    Evening everyone, new to the forum and completely new to anything fossil related. I've always had an interest in paleontology from a very young age. So a family trip to the Jurassic Coast for a week I had to scour the beach for something. I still have tomorrow to go, so any tips on what to look for would be great, I'm staying at Seatown for any locals with information. I came across 3 'possibly' interesting things, now I'm sure the first picture is something, however the 2nd and 3rd I'm sure are nothing, just a stone and who knows what else. So any inform
  3. I just saw this from yesterday about a huge landslide in Dorset https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9467211/Biggest-rockfall-60-years-sees-4-000-ton-chunk-430ft-high-cliff-collapse.html?fbclid=IwAR2FzWq4RK5cNiT9gxQgaURCcj9D6GGEpgUMfF14e-QGw1mzp01-l2W1pLo One might think out loud... now is a good time to go look for fossils in all that fresh rock, but I am sure that this thing indicates that the area is generally less stable than we would all want it to be, as spoken by this official (from the posted link) below. My question is.. when do beach collectors in the UK

    Fossil ID please, U.K. Jurassic coast

    Hello, please excuse my lack of knowledge in this area. This is the first time we’ve ever hunted for fossils and while we have collected a lot of lovely ones we can identify, these we’re not sure of. they were found at charmouth and seatown in the U.K. we’ve started trying to use an engraver on the stone, we’re guessing ammonite?

    Preparation tips - newbie

    Hello everyone. I'm sorry to bother you. I have a few ammonites and ammonite impressions from a trip. I was wondering if you have any suggestions in how to clean them. I'm afraid of destroying them in the process. Thank you.

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi all. I picked this up on a dog walk yesterday by Chesil Beach in Weymouth UK. I regularly see belemnites, amonites, sea urchins etc but don’t recognise this. I don’t even know if it is a fossil or a bone or piece of coral. It certainly doesn’t feel like bone. It’s more of a stone / pumice consistency. Can anyone help me identify it please?

    ammonite identification

    Hi, my son and I have a large collection of fossils, some of which we found ourselves on the Jurassic coast of England. As we are now mostly confined to our houses here we were hoping to better document our collection and we were hoping to put the correct names to them all. To start I was hoping that someone could help us out by identifying which ammonites these are. They were all found in Lyme Regis and they are all preserved in iron pyrite. Thanks.

    UK Ichthyosaur or Pliosaur Tooth

    Hello, I recently got a hold of this tooth from an old collection in the UK. I am unsure if this tooth wouldve come from a ichthyosaur or a pliosaur since the root is absent and I'm not expert in this material, so any feedback that help figure this tooth out is appreciated.
  13. Dear Fossil-Community! Maybe you could help me identifying a strange object I've found at Charmouth Beach (Jurassic Coast, Dorset, United Kingdom) in December 2019. It is about 10cm long, covered in fool's gold and weights 172g. Its edges are quite straight, but on the narrow sides you can see foldings. I've attached some photos to this thread. Do you have any idea what this object could be? I am very thankful for your help and any suggestions. Kind regards Bernadette
  14. Picked this up at Charmouth Beach (UK) where mainly marine fossils are found (ammonites, echinoderms etc) but not sure what this might be. It's hollow and the inside has the light brown bumpy impressions running all the way through. Any suggestions on ID are appreciated!
  15. Hey all! I was visiting the Jurassic Coast in Devon yesterday and found these 3 fossils (I think) under the rocky cliffs on Lulworth Cove in Devon, England. ..does anyone know what they might be please? I have labelled each one 1, 2 and 3 and number 3 has 3 pictures attached; 3a,3b,3c. Unfortunately this is larger and a more difficult shape of rock to photograph. any help or advice on the ID of any of these would be great. PS. I am an amateur and have no idea if they even are fossils, but it would be exciting if they were. Thanks again for any
  16. Hi everyone! Last week I went camping for 3 days with my cousin and her parents in Lyme Regis (first time on the jurassic coast) and managed to persuade them to join me in a little fossil hunting! On the first day we went to Lyme Regis beach and to cut a long story short, we had no luck. all I found was half of a compressed ammonite in the shale which I then realised I lost when we got back to the campsite! I wasn't bothered though as the shale is so crumbly that it would not have lasted very long anyway. We did however have a really nice time on the beach and saw lots
  17. I have recently been exploring what is know as the Jurassic coast portion of North Yorshire UK. After finding ammonites in abundance I stumbled upon what appeared to be a vertabrae looking piece of rock. Parts that are exposed like the ends of the rock appear slightly porus like fossilized marrow. Waves often erode the sides of the cliffs exposing new fossils in this area. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify if this is actually a fossil and if so what sort of prehistoric beast it could have come from and if it is not thanks for your advice and hopefully better luck next time!

    Ichthyosaur paddle bone?

    Hello everyone! I recently picked this item up. It was labelled as a ichthyosaur vertebrae, however I just couldn’t shake the feeling it wasn’t. I purchased it and have done some comparing to my other specimens and looking through my textbooks. I’m thinking it could be a paddle digit. The way the lines of the bone sprawl out from the centre rather than the ring formation of some of my vertebrae. Of course I could be completely wrong but there’s always that thrill of the unknown. I’ve compared it to a partial paddle I have and a humerus I also have in some photos to give an idea. Ho
  19. Can anybody identify this fragment I found at Ringstead Bay, Dorset, UK a few years back? I thought originally it was either a piece of bone or ammonite fragment, any advice would be much appreciated. The location is along the Jurassic Coast and would assume it was Jurassic in age.

    Lyme regis vs Charmouth

    Some of you have probably heard of Lyme Regis in Dorset but less of you have heard of Charmouth(the coastline east of Lyme Regis). This topic will cover which one is better for fossil hunting. In Charmouth the common fossils are fools gold ammonites(which can be picked up just by walking along the beach),belemnites, beef rock ammonites, coprolites(most unidentifiable), random marine reptile bone fragments(usually ichthyosaur). The rarer Charmouth fossils are complete marine reptile bones. The incredibly rare fossils are Scelidosaurus(a primitive armoured dinosaur) bones. In Lyme regi

  23. Hi folks. spotted this on a recent holiday in the UK to the south coast ( Dorset - the Jurassic coast ). the rock was approx. 250kg and I got it down to 80kg to get it in the car. the reason was I noticed this strange raised disc edge shape within the rock which does not appear man made. the rock is extremely hard. I plan to start removing the rock to expose more of it as I'm curious. any ideas as to if this is even a fossil and if so what it could be.

    Lyme Regis Trip

    Hi All, Spent a few days down on the Devon/Dorset coast with family. Plan was to fish and fossil hunt over the period. Got to Lyme Regis nice and early on the Friday and still didn't beat the crowds. Found a few Pyrite Ammonites (of which the photos i will attach later) but nothing else of major significance. Went back on the Saturday and had a rummage around in the loose material on the beach slightly away from the crowds. Found a single Ichthyosaur vertebra under a large rock, then a small piece of paddle bone in a rock pool, and lastly and my favourite half a larger ve
  25. Hi all, I will be visiting the UK soon and am looking to acquire some UK fossils, particularly from the Jurassic Coast. Is there anyone I could approach for help on this? Thanks, Jay
