Hereโ€™s what one of our latest storms did to the beach! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐ŸŒŠ This picture was taken just recently as we filmed for a new episode in our YouTube channel, though we didnโ€™t expect to find so many nodules (rocks)!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโš’ We broke open all of these nodules with my younger brother @01shaesmith10 and some of them contained gorgeous ammonites - a couple of specimens are shown if you swipe along ๐Ÿ˜ in addition to those which broke open โ€œemptyโ€! Attached at the end also is a sneak pic at the very rare 3D fish skull and partial body we found yesterday, more to come on that one ๐Ÿคฉ ๐ŸŽฃ ๐ŸŸ #natural #nature #ancient #animals #wildlife #history #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #palaeontology #minerals #paleontology #sea #summer #whitby #earth #beautiful #dorset #geology #charmouth #lymeregis #beauty #yorkshire #coast #ichthyosaur #beach #jurassic #crystal #fossils #fossil
Hereโ€™s an ammonite rock we broke open at Sandsend Beach UK! โš’๐ŸŠ Itโ€™s around 185 Million Years Old ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Today we also made a very exciting discovery! We were walking along the beach and found, sat in the sand, half a fossilised fish with an almost totally 3-Dimensional skull! ๐Ÿคฉ ๐Ÿ  ๐ŸŸ Itโ€™s mouth is preserved slightly open and you can see all of itโ€™s teeth! ๐Ÿฆท Iโ€™ll upload this fossil soon once weโ€™ve fully cleaned it off ๐Ÿ˜† #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
This dark elegant fossil plant had fallen from the towering cliffs of Runswick Bay UK ๐ŸŒฒ ๐ŸŒณ ๐ŸŒฑ These plants are usually totally crushed and preserved in thin Bituminous Slate, yet this specimen was preserved of top of a limestone nodule (rock) and so much better preserved! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ If anyone knows the exact name of the specimen it would be much appreciated to know! โš’ We also got many ammonite fossils today... swipe along to the next pic! Iโ€™m loving being home from University for the holiday already! #tree #trees #fossil #fossils #plant #plants #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s a large rock we broke open! โš’๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป We could see what appeared to be the edge of an ammonite showing, turns out it was a big complete Hildoceras Yorkshire ammonite ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ We have a heap of similar rocks in our garden, perhaps weโ€™ll have to break open some more incase others contain ammonites like these! ๐Ÿคฉ #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s some of our best slate-preserved fossil reptile finds from this year! ๐Ÿฆˆ๐ŸŠ Iโ€™ve just finished my exams for 4th Year of University so thought Iโ€™d post this before I go home back to the coast to (hopefully) make some more great finds! โš’๐Ÿคฉ The first find here is an Ichthyosaur rostrum (jaws saturated with teeth!) and if you swipe along you can see the rostrum once removed from the big slab and preparation partly under way! ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ The find after that, held by my younger brother @01shaesmith10 , is an Ichthyosaur paddle and associated bones ๐Ÿฆด Shae has done exceptionally well lately, receiving many offers for the University course heโ€™ll hopefully be starting in September! ๐Ÿ“šโš’ #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Recently we were fortunate enough to find this small and rare fossilised bone! ๐Ÿฆด๐Ÿฆ•๐Ÿฌ Itโ€™s around 185 Million Years Old from the Upper Lias, Lower Jurassic of Yorkshire ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŒŠ Can you tell what this bone is? My mum found this one along with another cool bone!โš’ #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
This nodule (rock) was sealed within a slate slab that had been ripped from the cliffs following a rough sea! We chipped the rock out and broke it open on camera, showing these fossils the first glisten of daylight since they died 185 Million Years Ago โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ–โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ•Theyโ€™re Eleganticeras ammonites from the Jet Rock Shales of Yorkshire UK. We were shocked to see not one, but many ammonites inside! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s a look at some of our favourite multi-coloured ammonites ๐Ÿคฉ The magnificent blue is deeded to be ammolite, the aragotinic nacre (mother of Pearl) that lined the inside of the ammoniteโ€™s shell in life ๐Ÿฆ‘๐ŸŠ Whilst the Golden effect is Iron Pyrite (fools gold) โš’ These ammonites do not come by very often!! #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s one of my favourite fossil fish Iโ€™ve found to date! ๐ŸŸ ๐Ÿ  Itโ€™s a Lepidotes, from the Jet Rock Shales of Yorkshire, 185 Million Years Old ๐ŸŒŠโš’ These fish are renowned due to their diamond-shaped thick enamel scales! Iโ€™d really love to find an even bigger complete specimen but they are really really rare! ๐Ÿ˜… #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s a perfectly exposed example of a fossil squid-like creature ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ This is the โ€˜Belemnite Guardโ€™ of the 185 Million Year Old fossil which was used to help with buoyancy ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿ We gently placed this perfect fossil on a sandstone boulder for others else to see and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŠ Swipe along for a Belemnite with some serious pathology! ๐Ÿ’€ Iโ€™ll do a dedicated post to this particular rather special fossil with plenty more detail soon โš’ #natural #nature #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #breaking #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock #fossils #fossil
Hereโ€™s a fossil which was laid on the sandy beach of Runswick Bay UK! ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฉ Initially, only a tiny black edge was showing at the edge of the slate slab and we assumed there was a fossil fish inside! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ  - But, when we removed the excess slate with precise tooling we were shocked to discover this inside instead ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜… Itโ€™s really rare!! Can you tell what it is? โš’ #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Hereโ€™s an ammonite we found at Whitby and broke open once we got home ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ We resisted the temptation of breaking it open on the beach so we could use our more precise tools! โš’๐Ÿคฉ This is a Dactylioceras sp. and is around 185 Million Years Old, an absolute classic ammonite for Yorkshire, but not all are broken from the rock this simply! ๐ŸŠ ๐Ÿ– #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
