Hi, I am new to this but I have recently found what I believe are snake fossils. The two small ones are 90.cm long both show bone structure & one has the tongue sheath & a very obvious long jaw . Now.. the other 2 are a big leap & I know it sounds nuts but I think they two may snakes. The small 1 has crystallised nostril of to the side and a dimpled skin as has the larger one the large one displays what appears to be a large mass of flesh, bone & sinew pushed to the one side exposing the jaw bone which is standing proud. if the jumble of matter of the mouth appears to be the tongue sheath & tongue, noticeable by its symmetry & its location. OR AM I NUT;S ???

Hello, it is not nuts to see familiar shapes in rocks, but these are just rocks, not fossils.

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

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm afraid I agree with Bert, fragments of larger rocks.

Just rocks!  Fossils of snakes are very very very rare, they can be found in the London Clay, just as single vertebrae, but I know of one complete snake skeleton from Sheppey.
