  1. Found this object on the beach today in the Netherlands (was thinking it was a tooth)- Cadzand ( south of the Netherlands known for fossil finds). I have been trying to ID it and would love some help. Thanks so much (hand for reference size (woman with small/medium hand size)
  2. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Unhatched bird fossil??

    Hi folks, I've found this object which, to my untrained eye, looks just like small unhatched bird. Would like to here your opinions! I've found it in my garden (NL)... I can post more and better pictures here later, for now I hope the image below suffices.

    Winterswijk

    Hello folks... A question for our Dutch colleagues. Is the Winterswijk quarry open to collecting these days? I am alsways looking for new intersting places to go find old dead things and this place looks intriguing.

    Possible fossil?

    found this fossil looking thingy loooong ago in the Netherlands. It kinda has the shape of a bone but i have no idea.

    Fish bone from the Zandmotor

    Hey everyone, Found this bone yesterday on the Zandmotor, Netherlands (most likely Eemian in age, late Pleistocene, around 120'000 years old). Judging by the structure I'm fairly confident it's from a fish, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what bone it could be. My best guess so far is that it's a parietal bone, but I'm not yet convinced. I'm not finding much comparison material online; although I may be using the wrong search words. I'm also curious if you maybe know if it's possible to identify this bone further than Teleostei indet. It's quite big (scale in centimete

    Fossil bone/tooth, Bison? (NL)

    Found this large fossil tooth at the Kaloot beach, The Netherlands while looking for fossil shark teeth. Tried cross referencing it to the local database and I think it might be a European Bison...but I'm not sure. Maybe some of you guys can ID it! It's about 10-12 cm tall (rough estimate), two deep grooves on top. Bottom is hollow. Quite worn, you can see the internal bone structure in several places. Sides are smooth. Would love to hear what you guys think!

    Nice bird bone from the Zandmotor

    Hi everyone! Last week I found this nice, rather big, bird bone on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). It is most likely late Pleistocene in Age (Weichselian) but could possibly be older (though I doubt this is any older than early Pleistocene, given the conservation). I believe it to be a femur of a rather large species of bird. My first thought was the great auk, Pinguinus impennis, but I think my bone is probably not sturdy/thick enough for such a heavy bird. I'm currently thinking it might be something like a large sea gull, but this is just guess work, and birds are definitely not my area o
  10. Hey guys! This hunt was on more than a month ago, on the 18th of July, but I haven't had time to make a trip report till today. Better late than never! In late June I invited my good friend Tijn ( @Hunter0811) to come hunt with me at the Zandmotor, and then come to my place to see my whole collection, and we had a great time talking about all things fossil-related. That evening he told me about a new location he had discovered near his house in the east of the Netherlands which also had Ice Age mammal bones, and so we made plans to meet up again soon, but this time over there, so tha

    Some recent Zandmotor finds

    Hey everyone! Hope everyone's doing alright during this stressful situation! I haven't been too active on TFF (or with fossils in general) the past few months (mostly due to school work), but with the whole virus situation I suddenly have some more free time. The Netherlands aren't currently under strict quarantine, but schools are closed, and we're firmly recommended to stay at home and forbidden to go out in groups of more than 3. But, luckily fossil hunting is still possible, so after a long winter hiatus I finally went back to the Zandmotor (last time was when I found that mammot
  12. Hello everyone, Yesterday my girlfriend & I went fossil hunting for birthday. This was the first fossil hunt the two of us did on our self, our previous hunts were all excursions with the Belgian Association for Paleontology. We visited two locations, but locations are part of the Formation of Gulpen, around 68 million years old, dating back to the Maastrichtian (these outcrops are part of the Maastrichtian type location where the first mayor Mosasaurus discovery was done). The first location we visited was a limestone outcrop next to the Albert Channel here in Belgium,

  14. Hey everyone! On Wednesday, as I finally had some time, I decided to take Sara out to my favorite hunting spot: the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I definitely did not regret that decision! If you've never heard of the Zandmotor before, it's an artificial beach extension just south of The Hague, and the sand that was used was dredged from the North Sea and is full of Ice Age megafaunal mammal bones and tons of Eemian shells. If you want to see some more of my finds and hunts there, just look up "Zandmotor" in the TFF search bar and you should find a bunch of stuff When we got

    Vertebra id

    Besides of the tooth and several other bones I also found some this vertebra: I am really not sure if its a mammal vert or something. Is it even fossil? I have my doubts.... Its from the area of Ijmuiden (Netherlands), so its probably from the Holocene. Can anybody help on the id? Again perhaps @LordTrilobite or @Harry Pristis ?

    Mammal tooth id

    Hi guys, I found this mammal tooth a while ago at the Zandmotor near Den Haag in the Netherlands. You can find there fossils from the Quaternary period. The tooth is about 2 cm long and the crown is quite damaged. Looks a bit like a very small woolly rhino tooth but I am really not sure. Can anybody help me? Maybe @Harry Pristis or @LordTrilobite ? Here is the tooth:

    Mammal tooth

    Long time, since I last time posted anything.. Well, here is something I stumbled upon while walking on the (beautiful) dunes near Amsterdam. It clearly is a tooth and I somewhat am confident it about being either some cow or bison, (upper??) molar. I have been second guessing it being an fossil afterall, and would like to get another opinions of it. In my eyes, bottom side looks more like rock than bone with rootcanals..
  18. Hi everyone, Not last Wednesday, but the one before that one, I went to the Zandmotor again for a hunt, and it went well! As soon as I went down on the beach (I was still in the Kijkduin area, not yet on the Zandmotor), so only some 5 minutes or so into the hunt, I found this little ugly thing in the sand: It's a small (slightly incomplete) mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) lamella! It's from the late Pleistocene, some 40'000 years ago. It's nowhere as nice as the previous one I found, but this one's cool too. Still happy to have found it because lately I've rea

    Bone pieces from the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, Here are 3 bone pieces I found last month on the Banjaard beach in the Netherlands. Not sure what any of these are. Their age is most likely Pleistocene, but it could also be Pliocene. Both terrestrial and marine are possible. Let me know if any of these remind you of anything! Thanks in advance, Max Bone #1:
  22. Hi everyone, I'm really late on this one, but better late than never! On the 6th of April I went to the Banjaard beach again, and although our hunt was short it was super interesting! I started off by searching the coastline, where I found lots of bivalves such as Tridonta borealis, Mya truncata, Mytilus edulis, Arctica islandica, etc. After a while I went higher up the beach and started looking for the gastropod shell banks we had a lot of luck at last time. Unfortunately I didn't manage to find them... which tells me that the banks come and go, and that that prev

    Bryozoan? From the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, Here's a cool little thing I found on the Banjaard beach (Zeeland, Netherlands) last month. I believe it's a type of bryozoan? If so, what species? Apart from the mollusks, the invertebrates are really not my strong point... The age of this thing is probably (anywhere in the) Pleistocene, but possibly older (up to Eocene). It might be modern too... The most common sediments at this location are Eemian (warm interglacial stage in the late Pleistocene) in age. This specimen was found in a bed of lots of tiny Lacuna vincta shells, if that helps.
  24. Hi all, This weekend, after the long, boring and annoying winter months (it's always mildly cold, but very windy and rainy in the Netherlands in winter... horrible fossil hunting conditions) spring finally let out the tip of its nose, with a nice sun, blue sky and decent temperature. About time! We all know what this means... time to do some fossil-hunting! So on Sunday morning I woke up, prepared my fossil hunting equipment (mainly bags and boxes; no tools needed for this beach), made myself a lunch, and set out at 13:00 to the bus. The bus ride to Kijkduin takes me a
  25. Hi everyone, My last hunt of 2018 was incredible. And quite surprising too! For Xmas, we went to Middelburg in Zeeland to visit my mother's family, which is always a huge load of fun for me because I get to hang out with all my cousins, that I don't see very often. Anyways, one of the days, they all wanted to do a big walk on one of the beaches. At first they wanted to go to Dishoek, but I managed to convince them to go to the Banjaard instead. Once arrived, we split into 2 groups: one was my mother, my eldest cousin (18), my 2nd-youngest cousin (6), and I. All the rest
