Kimmeridge Clay Fossils - by Ian West

From there we went on to Bembridge Fort where we were greeted by Tony Tutton of the National Trust for an enlightening tour of this huge Victorian defensive structure. It is possible that some of the larger carnivorous dinosaur footprints and casts that we find preserved in ancient river sands belong to Baryonyx. It was worn by Paul rather than being on the wheels it is on now.

It is from the lowerThere was so much

We look forward to introducing some further interactive interpretation in the future. The skyline is now permanently altered. This news item is being updated as the work is being done.

In the skull the nasal openings for the nostrils were placed far back and not at the end of the snout. Two other new species of pliosaurus were also named in the paper, both found in clay pits near Westbury in Wiltshire and held at Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery.

Also inside the house were Timetaxi. The erosion in this area occurs because porous rocks lay over a clay band half way up the cliff and all of the rocks dip gradually towards the sea.

The disk-like vertebrae were very numerous, and separate examples are often found as fossils on the cliffs and beaches where there is Jurassic clay. He personally discovered more species of dinosaurs, and has more species named after him, than any other Englishman. To the right are tracks from two smaller dinosaurs called Hypsilophodon. This genus is closely allied to Plesiosaurus, but differs in its enormous head and extremely short neck. Without it we would see a much more rocky beach.

The picture was taken on the beach when it was found. The Ichthyopterygia are a great Order of reptiles that returned to the sea and became highly adapted to it.

Delair referred to this species as Pliosaurus brachyspondlylus. Dinosaur Isle went along for the day and took it's beach wheelchair which was rolled around the hall, complete with its large dinosaur toy passenger. Dean spent a week visiting the museum itself, and our store of fossils to describe and photograph some of our best specimens to feature in the upcoming book.

It is from the lower clay layers of the Sandrock that we are able to find fossilised wood, complete with preserved tree rings. There was so much demand that we had to lay on an additional five guided fossil walks. More fossil illustrations and descriptions will be added here from time to time.

Predictions are that the millionth visitor should come through our doors on that day if there are enough visitors. It is from a bone called a phalange, and the part in the picture would be described as the proximal end.

They are currently on show in our lab whilst we find space in the main museum for them. These walks have in the past turned up newly discovered species of dinosaur, as well as a prehistoric crocodile and a spider.

This year the show's organisers invited Dinosaur Isle to exhibit with equal prominence with some of Europe's leading museums, including the Natural History Museum, London. The footprints now include those from two Iguanodons, Eotyrannus, two Hypsilophodons, a sauropod and a pterosaur. The early morning had started with heavy rain, but fortunately it had stopped by the time we set out. The press arrived in spectacular style on one of Hovertravel's cross-Solent Hovercraft which glided gracefully onto the beach in front of the museum. It was stranded at the high tide mark so we put it back into the sea.

The article mentioned that Mr. They had four powerful paddle-shaped limbs. On the upper part of the Fort there are a number of later modifications and some unusual objects. It is a terrific opportunity for Dinosaur Isle Museum to extend its partnerships and give us the chance to discuss future collaborations. No complete skeleton has been found.
