Here’s one of our favourite belemnite (fossil squid remains) fossils which we found last summer 🦑 🦑 They look a lot like huge teeth! We left this fossil on the beach for others to find at the time, though we kind of wish we’d kept it now! 😅😜 #squid #squids #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #breaking #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock #fossils #fossil

On Episode 33 of Scilence (published 10th Feb): My guest totally infected me with the #palaeontology bug.  Her enthusiasm had my imagination running wild with #dinosaurs and how weird things must have been back then. 
She tells us that #Hollywood got it wrong with #JurassicPark; how she’d like her body to be preserved after she dies and that #scientific progress in her field, makes her feel more connected to the #Earth - in her words ‘Science is Spiritual’. Well, now she’s talkin’ my language!

Gryphea dilobotes (Duff) are relatively abundant in the Kellaways formation and Lower Oxford Clay, however over the years I have noticed a decline in the numbers of intact shells - hence why I collected it. This  specimen comes from the Old Norman Cross pit in Peterborough - Lower Oxford Clay and is Callovian (jurassic) in age.

I've had a very productive morning! Here you can see that I've I've polished the iron pyrite on a nodule that contains little baby Eleganticeras ammonites. Its polished to a brilliant golden shine! This is the best result I've had so far. It take an awful lot of time to get this golden shine, using lots of different grades of sandpaper. It's very messy work as you can see from my hands! You can also see a pair of stands that I've made specifically for the two halves of this piece. I will be listing this for sale on my etsy very shortly! #fossil #fossilhunter #fossilcollector #ammonite #geology #palaeontology #beach #whitby #charmouth #cliffs #lymeregis #jurassic #northyorkshire #nature

Some Promicroceras sp. ammonite preparations from yesterday. I'd like to be cracking on with further preparations today but unfortunately the head is swimming and dizziness is rife. Tomorrow is a new day! These ammonites were found between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, Dorset, UK and are approximately 195 million years old.

Καλλιτεχνική αναπαράσταση δεινόχειρου από τον Luis V. Rey.
Ο Δεινόχειρος (Dinocheirus mirificus) ήταν θηριόποδος δεινόσαυρος που έζησε στη νότια Μογγολία κατά την Ύστερη Κρητιδική περίοδο. Στην αρχή, τα μόνα γνωστά απολιθωμένα υπολείμματα ήταν ένα μόνο ζεύγος χεριών μήκος 2,5 μέτρων με μακριά νύχια και κατάλοιπα κάποιων πλευρών και των σπονδύλων. Για αυτό και η πλήρης μορφή του ήταν για δεκαετίες ένα μεγάλο ερωτηματικό. Σήμερα όμως, από πιο πλήρεις σκελετούς που βρέθηκαν, γνωρίζουμε ότι ο Δεινόχειρος είχε αλλόκοτη μορφή, με μακρύ ρύγχος, χοντρό σώμα, πόδια σαν πασσάλους και... καμπούρα!

Microraptor 🍖 a very small but successful member of the dromeosaurid family that lived during the early Cretaceous in Liaoning, China 120 million years ago.

Since it's discovery in 2000, Microraptor has been intensively studied with over 300 well preserved specimens, some so detailed they even preserved the feather and skin pigment cells. It was among the smallest dromeosaurs, measuring at around a meter and an estimated weight of no more than a bag of sugar. It's size was used to its advantage however, like the other small non-avian dinosaurs it was capable of semi and (in Microraptor's case) perhaps even powered flight.

It's not certain if it's unique four wings had the mobility and strength to keep it airborne for true flight. However it definitely had the traits we see in modern birds that would suggest it had what it needed to be able to fly. It's feathers where highly advanced for it's time, from the fossil evidence, it shows that they were near identical to the feathers of birds today and even having an overall dark colouration with a shiny iridescence like our Starlings or Crows. As well as this, it had a lightly built skeleton with forelimbs that we're much more flexible (unlike other dromeosaurs) and could possibly perform a full up and down flapping motion. The tail had a plumage shaped like a diamond that maybe helped with airborne maneuverability. If Microraptor wasn't able to truly fly, it was for certain a better flyer than a majority of avian dinosaurs of it's time. It would've easily been able to move between tree tops and hunt by ambushing small prey from above, such as lizards, insects and small mammals. Palaeontologists debate wether it was a tree dwelling animal or spent most of it's time on the ground as the feather plumage on the legs would've hindered it's running if chasing prey on foot. In turn it didn't possess the build to be an effective tree climber either. 
It's uncertain exactly how it lived and behaved in it's environment, but what we do know shows evidence that Microraptor had an important evolutionary relationship between dinosaurs and the birds that eventually perfected the ability of flight.

If you were a tiny mammal in the Eocene you'd be worried about this terror bird. This is a specimen of the giant, flightless bird called Gastornis - part of the 'terror bird' family of extinct birds.

This specimen is from the famous Eocene beds of Messel in Germany.

There is evidence for and against whether or not Gastornis was a carnivore or herbivore, but most recent research suggests it was likely omnivorous.

Archaic “Carcharias taurus” (Grey Nurse Shark/Ragged-tooth shark) tooth found in-situ today on the shore platform. This jet-black tooth is over 25 million years old. This widespread lineage of sharks is now completely extinct in the state of Victoria, Australia; with the advent of snorkelling/diving equipment and high powered spears, humans systematically exterminated this shark. Within the blink of a geologic eye, we lost a 25 million year old lineage because we thought they were man-eaters (they’re not). This tooth was found and expertly collected by @sconce_master . It’ll live in the Vertebrate Palaeontology collections of @museumsvictoria until the end of time. #afoolsexperiment #science #palaeontology #fossils

мечтала найти такие ракушки, аммониты называются

сильно мечтала
что один раз взяв большой молоток, уговорила Рому ходить со мной по Вятлина в поисках круглых камней, как у крутых дядек с инстаграм, пыталась их колотить...но все было безуспешно и Рома придумав прекрасный повод «там люди идут, хватит тут камни долбить, убери свой молоток в машину пошли» всю эту исследовательскую экспедицию плавненько прекратил👻
⠀
а сегодня, обычный день, поехали мы, идём, стеклышки с Мэй собираем и я что вижу!!! Одну! потом шли обратно и случайно под ногами, на дороге практически, вторую. Ну воооообще! 🤤
что за праздник сегодня?!

This nodule (rock) was preserved within a loose slab of Alum Shale ⚒⚒ As I was walking along the beach I noticed the first edge of one of the ammonites and was curious as to what else was within the rock! 🤔🏝🐚 Turns out there were a number of Dactylioceras species ammonites 😍 Unfortunately most weren’t preserved 3D, though I was still excited to find this! 😀 #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome  #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock

Hey guys! @ottoandoliv came up with an awesome hashtag yesterday: #girlswhodrawdinosaurs 🦖🦕 It honestly resonated with me so much because dinosaurs are inherently seen as a “boys” thing. Not even a male thing but specifically for young boys. It frustrates me the amount of times I’ve had snide comments made on my behalf that I’m an adult woman who likes dinosaurs. Dinosaurs are for everyone. Period. It doesn’t matter about your age or your gender or even where you live. Anyone can enjoy dinosaurs and never let anyone tell you otherwise 😁 There are so many amazing female artists who draw or make dinosaur related things (I could reel off a whole list of ones I follow and there are probably so many more) that I think it’s wonderful to have a hashtag that will celebrate that ✨ So I’m going to start using it (I’ve even added it to my bio) and I encourage any woman or girl out there who loves drawing/making dinosaur things to do the same 🙌🏻 This drawing is based on Roary the Allosaurus from @lapworthmuseum - literally one of my favourite museums 💕

Κρανίο ενός Ουρανοπίθηκου του μακεδονικού, από το Ξηροχώρι Θεσσαλονίκης.
Ο Ουρανοπίθηκος ο μακεδονικός (Ouranopithecus macedoniensis) είναι ένα πρώιμο είδος ανθρωποειδούς πιθήκου. Είναι γνωστός από απολιθώματα που βρέθηκαν σε τρεις τοποθεσίες στη βόρεια Ελλάδα (εξού και μακεδονικός) και χρονολογούνται από 9,6-8,7 εκατομμύρια χρόνια. Πιστεύεται ότι είναι ο τελευταίος κοινός πρόγονος του ανθρώπου και των άλλων σημερινών πιθήκων.

I'm in the workshop today cutting and grinding. Here's one of the better pieces on the final grind before polishing, should turn out an absolute beaut!!! This was just a scrappy little piece of nodule I found amongst the beach shingle about a year ago on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset UK 🇬🇧

Αναπαράσταση Μαλλιαρού ρινόκερου από τον Remie Bakker. Ο μαλλιαρός ρινόκερος (Coelodonta antiquatis) ήταν είδος ρινόκερου, ευρέως διαδεδομένο στην Ευρώπη και τη βόρεια Ασία. Έζησε κατά τη χρονική περίοδο 3.600.000-11.500 χρόνια π.Χ. και εξαφανίστηκε στην τελευταία εποχή των παγετώνων. Στην Ελλάδα ζούσε στα ηπειρωτικά μέχρι την Πελοπόννησο.

I actually thought of this way back, when I was diagnosed with #bipolar disorder.

You’ll never know what you might find hiding in the vertebrate palaeontology collections of @museumsvictoria . @griffithsyestin pulled open a draw to reveal this; an incredible face portrait of one of Australias largest marsupial predators: “Thylacoleo carnifex”. With bolt-cutter like teeth and a hyper-carnivorous diet to match, this leopard sized predator dominated the continent of Australia throughout the Pleistocene. Created in graphite by “S.Browning”; does anyone know more about this palaeo-artist? #afoolsexperiment #science #palaeontology #fossils

Lepidotes spp. fish scales! These scales were collected from the Lower Oxford Clay (callovian), presumably the K. Jason zone! They are preserved excellently, collected from two old locations in Peterborough.

Archaeopteryx skull under a microscope🔬

I took this photo almost 10 years ago whilst examining Archaeopteryx specimens, including this one, AKA the Thermopolis specimen. This is one of the most complete and beautifully preserved specimens of Archaeopteryx ever found, all of which are from the quarries near Solnhofen in Germany. One of the world's most remarkable fossils.

I promised I’d post a follow-up on the acid preparation that I’ve been testing out for the first time on a 3” fossilised section of Jurassic Ichthyosaur jaw. I’m now up to about 18hrs on-off of diluted acetic acid exposure and the limestone matrix has dissolved really well. Since my last update a few days ago, a good few more teeth have been exposed that were recessed deep into this jaw. The acid has worked its magic to remove the matrix but preserve these delicate teeth. I could of course do more to this but it feels right to leave it there. If the teeth were more robust and larger you can allow the acid to work it’s away around to create a 3D effect but these teeth are a little too small for that so I’ll leave it be. More details on the process are in my previous post. Swipe left to see the before and after. #acid #aceticacid #acidpreparation #fossilprep #fossilpreparation #ichthyosaur #ichthyosaurs #jawsection #lymeregis #jurassic #jurassiccoast #teeth #fossilhunting #fossilhunter #fossil #fossils #fossilised #fossilsofinstagram #fossillovers #fossiladdict #palaeoart #paleoart #palaeontology #paleontology #extinct #extinction #preparation #limestone #geology @the_wobbly_fossiler

It’s The Cookieraptor’s 1st birthday and it’s feeling a bit surreal! This time last year I was struggling. I was considering quitting my degree, I was completely disillusioned with photography (after years of thinking I was going to take up photography as a career) to the point where I had stopped taking pictures and I was basically having an identity crisis because of it all. I created this account as a way to take pictures again but this time take photographs of what I loved... Dinosaurs. This account has grown beyond what I thought it would. I started out with 4 followers - I now have over 1000! I have created a colouring book and soon I will have notebooks and other products too. I have grown as a person and learnt to properly embrace my true geeky dinosaur ways. It just goes to show that you shouldn’t listen to university tutors that belittle your work for just being “pretty pictures”. Believe in yourself and you can go far 😁 So, I’m celebrating with a cupcake and one of my cool dino candles by @welovetocreate 🦖 If you didn’t know already then I’m also celebrating by doing a giveaway which you can enter on my last post! 🦖🦕

Here is a view over another fossil colony of crinoids I found a while back and have been preparing in my spare time. This one has a thin layer of iron pyrite on the surface which gives the whole fossil a golden shine! More natural art.

There were two different groups of tree-ferns back in the Upper Carboniferous, the Marattiales which I have posted before and an extinct group with Senftenbergia reproductive organs. One of its foliage forms, shown here and known as Senftenbergia (Pecopteris) plumosa was delicate with tapering pinnules - the first photo is about life size. The second photo is enlarged to show the pinnule details. S Wales Coalfield #pecopteris #carboniferous #paleontology #palaeontology #fossilfriday
