    Daughter found this on beach what is it?

    My daughter found this today on the beach in north wales United Kingdom, near to where some sea lions live just wondering is it a fossil or just a tusk or is it neither ? Thanks
  3. Hi I'm back again, I'm stuck identifying a few fossils and was wondering if anyone knows what any of the images exactly are? I think I've finally narrowed it down to them being of the following: coradite, neuropteris, alethopteris and pecopteris I don't know if information on sizing would help work out but if anyone knows? Thanks youu
  4. Can anyone identify? And if so, what gave it away? Are there any keys I could use? All I know is that it's Carboniferous.

    Possible tooth?

    Hi all. First time poster. My wife believes this may be a tooth that we picked up whilst hunting on the beach in Lyme Regis today. It is approx 7cm long. If you are kind enough to give your opinions it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

  8. Hello everyone, I'm Aman. I have always been interested prehistoric organisms and environments, and have fossil hunted since I was a little kid. I am currently studying palaeontology at university, and am hoping to go into research after graduating. One of my main goals in fossil hunting is to one day find something spectacular, especially a complete ichthyosaur! However, every fossil that I find fills me with excitement, no matter how big or small it is. I can't wait to find out more about fossils from the other members in this forum! Aman

    Hello, I'm very excited to be part of the fossil forum. I live in the UK and enjoy hunting for fossils along the South Downs, mainly marine fossils from the Cretaceous. I have recently visited the Isle of Wight, where Cretaceous and Palaeogene fossils can be found, and am particularly interested in the dinosaur remains that are found there. Thank you, W
  15. Hello everyone Used to collect trilobites, etc late 80’s / early 90s. Back in the fossil game after a hiatus of several years. Still interested in trilobites but with additional interest in dino teeth. Looking forwards to healthy debate, learning, advice and making new friends!

  19. Hi everyone, My uncle passed away near the start of the year sadly. He was an avid collector of fossils and he has left 100's behind. I have photographed them all in their draws but there is that many I cannot even begin to take individually photos. What is the best way to offload these without being taken advantage of, due to my lack of knowledge? I am based in Stoke-on-Trent in the United Kingdom.

    Pleistocene Teeth

    Hi all, this is my first post on here, but defnitely won't be the last. I'm newly returned to fossil hunting after a multi-decade absence, and I'm very glad to have found this forum! The teeth in the images came from a Pleistocene deposit overlying the London Clay of Essex. I'm tentatively going with deer for the small ungulate tooth, but no clue with the other rooted molar. You might be able to see that a third root has broken off. I've done plenty of searches along the lines of 'ice age mammal tooth ID guide', but could do with some help on the molar - and pointing towards any online/published ID guide! Thanks all.

    Hello from the UK

    Hi all, greetings from this retired Royal Navy officer/fossil newbie in Southern England. I've returned to fossil hunting after maybe 40 years doing plenty of other stuff, and the bug has bitten pretty hard. I've attended a couple of organised field trips and it turns out that I like nothing more than crawling along a beach with my nose about a foot from the sand. I'm looking forward to plenty more opportunities for getting my hands dirty, and to using the great resource that this forum seems to be. Here's to dirty fingernails and heavy rucksacks.

    Jurassic Oxford Clay find ID

    I will do these over a few posts. The site is Jurassic Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member, c.163 ma at Yaxley in Cambridgeshire. Any help would be greatly appreciated! The scale is in mm. The first I thought was Genicularia Vertebralis, but it looks a bit different from the others I've found, and has three distinct lines at the bottom of an unusually straight column.
  23. Just published a paper that describe a new dromaeosaurid, Vectiraptor greeni from the Barremian Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight. Very cool Paper is paywalled but looks like its just vertebrae and partial sacrum that were discovered. Posted it to get in on record since we have many collectors that have material from this locality. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667121003712
  24. 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 Theropods Baryonyx walkeri My collection includes two examples of this Spinosaurid from England. One tooth is partially rooted. Megalosaurus bucklandii One of the large theropods of region. This tooth was found encased in a block and the tip was restored based on the matching blocking Dromaeosaurid indet A very cool small theropod tooth. May not have yet been described.
