just wandering if there are any of the keen collectors/hunters of the Bouldnor/ cranmore/ Yarmouth areas on the forum.
I have been collecting from these areas for about 2 years, would love to see the collections of others, I know some people have been collecting from here for years, would love to see you finds and also show mine maybe get some id's. really keen to learn more about this area, share info and maybe search with.

cheers

Hi Found these on a trip a few years ago. Very muddy and a long walk back, but worth it.
Croc and turtle/reptile.

Hi yes that is definitely a Bothriodon molar, I can't tell you much more than that but  is you head to Wight Coast Fossils on facebook, my collecting partner Theo would.

I also collect, off and on, from Bouldnor to Hamstead. I'm having a spot of bother trying to remember how to post photos. But here goes.
1. Croc lower jaws - Diplocynodon probably
2 Croc upper jaw - ditto
3. Assorted mammalian teeth
More to follow
best wishes

And finally a few more .....
1. 3 Trionichid carapace fragments and 1 piece of Emiid 
2. some mammalian?? long bones - I find it difficult to identify any further
3 assorted larger bone fragments - again difficult to ID
I may post further later on

Hi the top photos are definitely Diplocynodon hanteonensis partial jaws, from what I can see the mammal teeth all look like they have come from Anthracotheres, they look Molars mainly, in regards to the Diplocynodon parietals' three top ones definitely are, the bottom one looks more like one of the ones on the side/back of the skull perhaps squamosal, quadrate or post-orbital, the limb bones are mostly croc, the middle one is an astralagus maybe anthrocothere, the bottom picture they are all Emys turtle shell.

Hi fossilamn 14 - I am not sure that the last of my photos shows Emiid fragments. They don't look like any of the turtle fossils that litter the coast at Bouldnor and Hamstead. The two black fragments might be turtle but the others, in my experience, are not.
Good fossil hunting

Hi Alex, the only one I think that might not be turtle is the top right one(bottom picture) but I think the likelyhood is that it is, I have collected about 2000 fossils from Bouldnor/Hamstead and have been collecting consistently for about 7 years, have some specimens similar to these that are Emys, my friend Theo will be able to confirm whether they are though as he specialises in that coastline.
Thanks Jack
