    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem

    Whitby Vertebrae

    Just opened this nodule on a beach in the Whitby area, I can’t help thinking that it looks like a couple of verts, can anyone confirm this and maybe suggest a species? I’ll put better pics up when I get home if needed. Thank you for looking

    My Whitby Ammonite Collection

    Hi I decided to display a few of my Whitby ammonites. Most are self found, some bought. Some are prepped by me. Some prepped by other people. One of the ammonites on the top shelf isn’t from Whitby. Guess which. Where’s it from and what is it? I’ll post some close ups in due course. Thanks for looking.

    What are these markings?

    Just been sent this photo by a friend in Whitby, UK, any ideas what it could be?

    Whitby area find - bone?

    Had a great day today at Saltwick Bay, after a little while scratching around picking up Dactys, I split a couple of nice big Hildoceras, one of which I’ve left with the shop in town to get tidied up. While looking around to try to beat my finds, my daughter found a little piece of gyrosteus bone. After stopping to do a bit of splitting (including a nice little pyrite Dactylioceras) we headed back and daughter was really pleased to find a slightly worn little ichthyosaur vertebra. That refocused the eyes and I spotted a partial ichthy skull in the shale, once we’d got over the excitement we sc
  6. Me and my boyfriend made the drive to Whitby yesterday for the first time. We spent about 3 hours fossil hunting at Saltwick Bay. We made some nice finds but we only found one of the really nice Whitby ammonites at the end of the trip which is the main reason I wanted to go to Whitby. There were plenty of ammonite fragments about but we struggled to find the famed ammonite bearing nodules (though we did pick up a few small and low quality ones, will need prep and not worth posting here). We did pick up a couple of shale plates with some nice bivalves and flattened ammonites. I did

    What is this fossil

    Found in Whitby

    Hi I found this on the coast of Whitby.. the circle at the top stud out and something different to the slate. After a bit of chipping the main bit came away easily and is definitely separate to the slate?? Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Whitby area reptile bones

    Daughter and I had a walk in the Whitby area this morning, didn’t come away with much but these two little chunks of bone made the trip worthwhile. The larger one (pics 3-6) appears to have ribs no more than about 5mm in diameter along with a lot of other bones. The smaller one (pics 1,2,7,8) looks to have two or three partial verts, but I can’t see if the centres are concave like ichthyosaur and to me they look too flat to be ples/croc. Can anyone shed any light on either piece? Thank you for looking
  10. Found this today in the Whitby area, either a septarian nodule is playing a cruel, early April fools or it’s some kind of reptile bone. It’s roughly symmetrical with the circle shape on each side. Thanks for looking.

    Whitby area finds

    A couple of finds from the Whitby area. Does this plant fossil have enough diagnostic features for an identification? Secondly, my daughter has been desperate to find some ichthyosaur material for ages now. She was so happy to find this, at first glance I thought it was just another piece of septarian nodule but on closer examination I think she’s probably right about it being bone, albeit likely an unidentifiable chunk. Still, she’s happy and it’s going in the ichthyosaur cabinet as her first find
  12. I’ve been slightly obsessed for a long time now with finding a Whitby cannonball nodule good enough to put the hours of prep work into. I have given up while trying to split many, I have split a lot of empty ones, I have chipped a load while trying to split them. I do have a nice eliganticeras nodule that could potentially polish up but the shape just doesn’t lend itself. I found this at the weekend at Runswick Bay and while it would have been nice to have a split nodule with the positive and negative, I could see the potential in this. The actual ammonite is just a crushed up pyritey me

    Gyrosteus or wood? Or other?

    Going over some old finds... When I found this I picked it up as it reminded me of the Gyrosteus (large Jurassic fish) bone that I once found nearby. Quick to put me down my daughter quickly dismissed it as ‘just wood’ but I’m not so sure. Could it be bone of either fish or reptile? thanks for looking

    Whitby area Vertebra

    Braved the cold today to have a long walk around Runswick Bay and beyond. Best find was this vertebra, found in a slab of ammonites. Needs a little more prep to get the shale off. Any idea if it’s Ichthyosaur or something else?
  15. Alongside some great ammonites I found these three strange things amongst the Jurassic Whitby Mudstone, none of which I recognise. Any help is much appreciated.

    Vertebrae from Whitby (UK) area

    Have had these for years but never got them identified! Found on seperate excursions amongst the Jurassic rocks somewhere between Ravenscar and Whitby (don't remember exactly I'm afraid). Thanks so much in advance.
  17. Found in early Jurassic rocks on the Whitby coast. Lots of ironstone nearby so could be geological? But wanted to check if anyone thought it could be bones! Was too heavy to bring up the cliff. Any help is very appreciated! Cheers

    Whitby area finds

    Here are three pieces that I have found in the Whitby area (North Yorkshire, UK), all found on the same area of beach but at different times. I have posted the top one on here before but was unable to get any firm ID, but the other two are more recent finds. The larger one in the middle I feel bears at least a slight resemblance to fragments of ichthyosaur jaw that I have seen on sale in various places, which I suppose is what has made me hang on to these. Thank you for looking

    Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hey guys, I just posted a video where i find the 3rd joining piece to a big partial ichthyosaur paddle that i've found afew months back. Also some other ammonites and other interesting bits along the way. Hopefully you enjoy.

    Spiny ammonite from Whitby

    Found this poking out of a block of shale this morning in the Whitby area; managed to keep the remaining spines mostly intact while starting to prep it. Any ideas on genus/species? Would the pyrite around the opening have resulted from the ammonites soft tissue? Thank you for looking

    Whitby Ammonite

    Daughter and I found this in the Whitby area on Sunday; when I looked again at it last night it had already started to crack open so only needed a few light taps. Am I right in thinking it’s a Hildoceras, and can it be narrowed down further perhaps to Hildoceras Bifrons? Thanks for looking

    Whitby area find; bone?

    Just found this at the base of a scree slope somewhere between Runswick Bay and Sandsend (too excited to wait until I’m home to take pictures with a ruler, sorry ) Pretty sure it looks like bone of some sort; can anyone confirm this and maybe identify it? Thanks for looking

    Whitby find - bone/wood?

    Just found this on a morning stroll on a beach near Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK. Thought at best it may be a piece of reptile bone, maybe a piece of wood if not. Saw some nice plant material too, we were going to pick the larger pieces up on our return trip but the incoming tide made us decide against it. Thanks for looking
