Hi found this jaw bone today of hamstead beach near the base of the cliff , found other bone here that has been brown so the colour is putting me of, so is it a fossil jaw and if so of what? Thanks in advance.

Hi
Hampstead is one of my favourite places. Not sure about your jaw fragment but I have found croc and Amia there.

Thanks very much for the reply, I think I will need to do a bit more research on it to identify it, in going back tomorrow so I'm hoping for some more great finds :)

I expect you already know that you can find croc and fish teeth and verts and turtle in the medium to small shingle banks. You get funny looks from dog walkers but it is worth it and it is quite relaxing and something to do while eating your sarnies.

Good luck

I think it could be a mammal jaw, but looks more modern, not Oligocene, most of the grand copoure aged material is black as it has been washed in by minerals, I will get Theo to have a look at it as he specialises on that whole area of coastline.
