Here are my finds from Walton today:
P1000683b.jpg Usual Teeth
P1000682b.jpg Fish tooth
P1000681b.jpg Small coral
P1000678b.jpg On the top left off this is there a gastropod? I will do another pic.
P1000676b.jpg Nice seed, species?
P1000672b.jpg Small vert
P1000666b.jpg Now for the best finds, both on the same day! 2 Otodus's, the one on the left with particularly good cusps but rubbish root. We found the one on the left on the tower beach and the one on the left on another beach.
P1000670b.jpg Back view, showing the good cusps.
Any id's would be appreciated, thanks.

Let their be fossils!

Great finds, how large is the Otodus?

If you don't look, you won't find.

Forgot to mention, the seed looks a bit like Iodes but I'm sure Naze Dave will have a better idea than me.

The Otodus on the left is 5cm tall, the one on the right is 5cm tall and 4.7 cm wide. The one on the right looked a lot bigger due to the width.

Nice stuff, wondered who'd taken all the fossils lol, i found one lovely seed and that was the only find of note. Your seed is indeed Iodes sp although it is too difficult to tell from your pic which one. FineOtodus, shame about the root though.
Here is my seed, not certain on its identity yet.

Yeah it was good yesterday, because we have never found an Otodus on the tower beach and all the other beaches were quite good.
Thanks.

Did your seed come off the tower beach? i dont really bother with the other beaches anymore.
Thanks

The seed came off the furthest beach on the other side, the one with the cafe nearby. I have found that the other beaches are better for Otodus's, because 9 out of the 10 i have come from the other side!

Hmm, thats interesting, perhaps those beaches get searched less. All but 2 or 3 of mine come from the tower beach.

Yeah hopefully not long, I'm sure it will feel good when I do get one! Are you planning to go anywhere special fossiling in the holidays? I'm not, only Walton on Monday probably.
