Can you identify some of my fossils in my collection? The pictures I will show here include abound two fiths of my collection. I have sent this message twice by mistake. I pressed the post message button instead of the chose file button.
You got a good collection coming on, though I would hate to dust them! There is a lot in those pictures so identification might be difficult but I can see a variety from all over the world. I would take some more photos with fewer fossils in so greater details can be made out. Looking good!
Once you start to specialize you can build up a detailed scientific collection; note one of my drawers containing a few chalk shark teeth.
Wow! You have some nice teeth there. I even see a cow shark tooth! Here is a megalodon tooth. It is one of my faivorite pieces in my collection. I specialise in fossil wood. I find loads of carboniferous plant fossils where I live.
I like that megalodon tooth; sometime you can find whale bones with teeth marks and cuts from predation. Good to hear you like your wood, it can be incredibly interesting as you can gain much information from well preserved specimens.
The teeth are from the Cretaceous era and were found in the chalk around Bedfordshire, Kent and Sussex. The Hexanchus tooth is a particular favorite of mine.
Yep, that I a nice tooth. Is it a cow shark tooth? There is many discusions which show some of the wood I have found. One of them is called "Ossett fossil pine cone?" Do you think it's a fossil pine cone? Also, my faivorite one is called "is this a calamite". It is a trunk of a calamites.
Here are a few examples I have picked up - they have been chewed on by spotted hyenas. The smaller bones are bovine and the large one is a mammoth scapula.
Hi. I recently bought this bison rib of the internet. It has pathological deformities where the bone has broken and healed, and it also has several bite marks (maybe from wolves?)
It comes from Peterborough and is an inland fossil.
When I bought it it was in 3 pieces and had several cracks, but I have now repaired it and filled in the cracks.
Great images of your bone and well restored.
I found a book recently that I thought was applicable to the area were you collect.
I think it cost about £12 new when I bought it but I don't know what it costs now but is well worth buying.
Yes - definitely worth shopping around.
I have used abebooks.co.uk as a source of secondhand books for decades (mainly for book on Viola). It is a place where many vendors (companies and individuals) put their books for sale.
Here's a search on their site for your book
You'll see that turns-up many hits, with prices ranging from £17 to £120!!
