Hi,

I found this today at Beltinge beach fossil beds, Herne Bay area. Would anyone know what this could be?  I think it looks like part of a large crab.  Maybe the pincer or a body section perhaps?

To me it is just a rock covered in barnacles I'm afraid, shapes can be deceptive.
You have a good collection of sharks teeth though.

Many thanks guys. I wonder also what these are... a fish bone perhaps?

Thanks Gary. Any clues on the smaller 2 next to the shark tooth? One looks like vertibrae the other maybe a crayfish type creature...or possibly metal in origin?

last time i went i found no larger un-worn shark teeth, how low does the tide have to be to get to the good stuff?

Hello, that last lot looks like small phosphatic nodules...with 1 small Striatolamia sp.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi... it was 0.8 metre low tide when I went. I think it should be 0.8 or less to expose the fossil beds.
