  1. 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

    Caudal vertebra or phalanx?

    Collected at Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight, and is about 33 million years old (Bouldnor Formation). This site produces a variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, lizards, fish and amphibians. I am torn between labelling this a small caudal vertebra or phalanx. One end is unfortunately broken while the other is concave, with a rounded socket-like face to it. Measures 17mm long.

    Thames fossil, tree?

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and wondering if you could all help me out. I found this fossil on the Thames foreshore in London at low tide. I would love to know what it came from! My only thought is that one side looks like rings of a tree and 2 other sides look a bit like bark. Would be very grateful for any help! Thanks

    Bird Pelvis Fragment?

    After having another look at one of my bone fragments from the Bouldnor Formation (Isle of Wight, UK), the closest match i have been able to find is a bird acetabulum, as circled in the diagram below. But i am not an expert on avian anatomy. Can anyone else offer any insight? @Auspex Specimen is approx. 33 million years old. The Bouldnor Formation on the Isle of Wight produces a wide variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, fish, lizards and amphibians. Measures 29 mm at its longest. The 'socket' which i think may be the acetabulum is 12.5mm in diameter.
  5. 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.
  6. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta

    Burnham on crouch hunt

    Hi guys yesterday I went to burnham on crouch in the hopes that storms would have cleared the silt but that wasn’t the case, it was a mudbath this silt catches on teeth, on scoring then and making it hard to find anything so although I didn’t find much I’ll share what I did with you here are some photos of the site, you can see the mud, also for people who want to hunt here in the future I have drawn lines to show where to hunt

    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

    Sauropod vertebra?

    Any thoughts on this? Being sold as sauropod cetiosaurus vertebra from Kimmeridge Clay. 11cm x 12 x 5.5 The hole at the bottom, seller says is predation from a scavenger -- size and shape matching croc or pliosaur. I'm suspecting plesiosaur, looking at a drawing of cetiosaur verts I found online. This one seems too rounded. Any thoughts, much appreciated. Attached the drawing below too.

    Possible Pachystropheus bone?

    Hi, I am thinking this could possibly be a Pachystropheus centrum or neural arch. Could I be correct? It's from Aust cliffs, UK. The longest side is exactly 2cm long. Many thanks.

    Thames Foreshore Bones

    Hello, A few days ago, me and my dad had to travel to London to get my American passport renewed at the US embassy. Afterwards, my dad headed towards the cafe to get something to eat as I took a stroll along the thames foreshore. I quickly realized that there were a lot of bones and teeth scattered along the shoreline, at the time I thought they were pleistocene, but now that I've looked online it seems to me that they're "medieval", apparently the tudors and georgians habitually tossed dead animal carcasses into the river. Even so, some of the teeth I picked up were very heavy and
  12. Hi, I am new to the forum and glad to be amongst fellow enthusiasts. I recently made a rather wet and windy visit to Warden Point (Kent, UK). Amongst the usual pyritised shells, seed pods and wood on the foreshore I found 4 items that totally escape me and I would be grateful if any of you could provide any pointers. The first appeared to be a tooth but on closer examination seems to be either a conical piece of coral or a shell? The second seems to be a small section or articulation but I’ve no idea if this would be plant or animal? The third look like a section of bone with an appe

    Charmouth bone?

    Hi all, thank you for letting me join and post our find. My kids found this fossil(?) on Charmouth beach in the UK a few years ago. We didn't think it was anything until a family friend pointed out that it looked like a vertebrae or pelvis bone of some kind. I have no idea honestly so my apologies if that is a ridiculous thing to say. We are hoping it is a dinosaur bone, but any kind of fossil would be amazing, especially for my son who is 10 and LOVES dinosaurs and fossils. We hope you can help and I hope the pictures are okay. Please let me know if you need different photos and thank you all
  14. I have these fossils here from the early Jurassic, Northamptonshire. I was wondering if the one on the left could possibly be a coprolite, or some other fossil, although most likely not. It does stick to the tounge. I also have these bumps on bits of rock, and was wondering if they could possibly be due to bivalves? And lastly, a slightly curved thing that has equal thickness which I have no clue what it is. Many thanks
  15. Hey guys, i just posted a new video of two fossils hunts i recently had on the Yorkshire Coast. Feel free to watch if interested. I found an awesome nautilus and some really cool Ichthyosaur Bones.

    British Theropod Bone?

    Hey folks, got a big one to cross-check with everyone. It's a partial....something. Does this match any identifiable features seen on theropods, like the shape of a pubis or scapula? Location: Oxfordshire, England Size: 220mm X 221mm Any help would be muchos appreciated. Cheers!
  18. I found two ichthyosaur ribs and a fern leaf on my local beach, yesterday. Unfortunately for me, they were in a massive slab which probably weighed no less than 25-30kg. At first I tried using my chisel and hammer to try and split up the rock into more manageable chunks but that didn't seem to work. Moreover, the bits of rock were flaking dangerously close to the fossils. I then tried rolling the rock, and this worked for a while until it rolled into a pit where it got stuck. With the tide coming in, I was forced to leave the slab. Now this got me thinking: How do people go about getting big a
  19. Hi everyone, hopefully someone may be able to help. We went to Runswick Bay in North Yorkshire, UK today (my personal favourite place to look for Fossils!). I'm a VERY casual collector and an absolute amateur at it to boot. Our dog is also blind so half the time I'm making sure he's walking okay and he isn't falling over things so I don't get to properly roam like I used to. Anyway, amongst picking up an almost complete Belemite, a Belemite fragment and some Ammonite fragments and prints, I also picked up 5 rocks that I've no idea
  20. Looks like we have a new dinosaur from the UK: Vectaerovenator inopinainopinatus The University of Southampton has confirmed that vertebrae discovered at Shanklin on the Isle of Wight in 2019 belong to a new species of Cretaceous era theropod. Believed to be up to 4m long, the dinosaur had notably hollow bones. "Chris Barker, a PhD student at the university who led the study, said: “We were struck by just how hollow this animal was — it’s riddled with air spaces. Parts of its skeleton must have been rather delicate"." News article: ht
  21. A fossil hunt I filmed recently, which ended up being surprisingly productive. Hopefully you enjoy.
  22. A lucky find has revealed evidence of dinosaurs in Scotland outside of the Isle of Skye for the first time. A single bone, thought to belong to a Stegosaur, was quite literally stumbled upon on the small Scottish island of Eigg. The bone, measuring 500mm, is believed to be from the Middle Jurassic (166 myo). Read more at the BBC here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-53917742
  23. Hello on my first fossil hunt today in UK coast I found the below shark tooth and this which looks like a fossil but I am not sure. any ideas if this is something? If you turn it lengthways I looks like a head with teeth and the type of shark tooth? Both were found with lots of fossilised tree
  24. In the past couple of months, I'd been to lavernock quite a few times looking for fossils. Usually each session would produce some nice assorted bits of bone and ammonite fragments, nothing too out of the ordinary. But lately, I've began finding quite a few bits of pleistocene bone there. I checked online but nothing really came up regarding pleistocene bones and etc, in Lavernock. I looked online and something came up which said that the bristol channel used to be a glacier? Which got me thinking that there's probably a pleistocene deposit at the bottom of the brist

    Hi and Help

    Hi. I’m new to fossil hunting and collecting its a little hobby my 8 year old son enjoys. We came across this on the beach last year and I have no idea how to open it and if it is a ammonite. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
