Hi, this is my first post, so be gentle ! I've been collecting for around 15 years. Have lots of small and very large ammonite pieces and devil's toenails , vertebrae etc. all from around the Watchet/Doniford/Kilve and Lilstock beaches. But these are a few of my most interesting - well., to me anyway.The ammonite in the nodule was found on Kilve Beach . The last pics.....some sort of bone perhaps ? (my other half took the pics, I don't have man hands). We love this area of the coast , my other half has family in the immediate area and we visit up to 4 times a year. We've found many interesting fossils, but these are my personal favourites.

Very nice finds. I live it watchet and spend as much time as I can on the beaches between lilstock and blue anchor.

Impressive finds Susan,
Jurassic crinoid (Pentacrinites?); bivalve (plagiostoma?); ammonite and what looks like a nice chunk of bone. The bone looks Rheatian (Triassic) and could be a piece of marine reptile rib or similar.

Thanks for the replies. Just a couple more for now.
A few vertebrae and what I think may be coral (?).
Me and my other half will be back down Watchet next month (Haven), and look forward to finding more interesting fossils. We have tons of them up the shed !

Hi Susan

The bone in your first posts looks like a rib section from a large ichthyosaur. The last fossil with the horizontal striations is a section of shark dorsal fin spine.
