Hi all,
 
 Been away for quite a while, but now back....Smile
 
 Would like to invite folks to show dinosaur footprints/bones from the Yorkshire coast please, a topic which interests me greatly, having 2 nice pieces of bone from the Whitby area...no mean feat as North Yorkshire not a common place to find bones of dinosaurs, ichth/plesi/fish yes, but dinosaurs uncommon... estimated only 9-10 bones on N.Yorks coast definite dinosaur origin since Victorian times (?!)....
 
  photos of in situ/casts of footprints appreciated...
 
 Cheers
 
 Aron
 
sauropod f/print
 
swimming therapod block, note scratch marks as 'doggy-paddling'
 
large iguanodontid footprint
 
stegosaurid - Deltapodus brodricki
 
my own Deltapodus pes, and below, manus?
 
footprints galore, therapods generally...
 
 
 
...and dino bones...
 
large (dorsal) spinous process, ?mid thoracic sauropod vertebra, presumed,....
 
 dinosaur food, Coniopteris sp and Ginkgo sp.
 
Oh!, and for snail loversLOL....a nice nautilus..Cenoceras annulare...

Thanks guys for the lovely comments!
 
 Yes, I too wish that more museums were like this!!
 
 If I go to a geology/natural history museum, I want to see specimens!!! Dont appreciate, computer animation, push this button, etc etc - what rubbish. Display cabinets, chests full of drawers, full of specimens. Accurate labelling and taxonomy
 
 I wish I could say this was all. What I have on show represents about a 1/3 of what I really own...Lots of boxes of rocks in storage I'm afraidCry. I'd love the space to show more, particularly my Derbyshire mineral collection, and more Staffs-Derbs Carb reef fossils, and Scottish fish collections... I do show my taxidermy and butterfly collections and antlers about my zany house though, together with my own artworks and sculptures...
 
 You're not the first people to ask whether I charge an admission price!!Big smile
 
 Cheers,
 
 Aron
 
ps. Tarq, that whale vertebra would go nicely with all the other bones and skulls I have...!

Hey there,
 
 More photos of some fossil fotprints and bone bits...all Yorkshire based
 
Deltapodus brodricki, stegosaurid pes
 
 
 
 
 
 
Therapods x4, and an ornithopod (above)
 
Presumed, sauropodean scapular fragment, near the acromion process, to account for the unusual 'flare' out at its' end..?
 
Cheers,
 
 Aron
