Sometimes I wish I could go back and rewatch Jurassic Park for the first time, the amazement and awe people must’ve felt when it first came out... but then I remember that the movie (no matter how many times you’ve watched it) is incredible and entertaining and still fills me with a level of awe. 💕

Killer whales (Orcas) are apex predators. They'll eat anything, from Blue whales to sharks. Their skulls are imposing; with up to 56 interlocking teeth in their jaws...
.
.
.
They live within matrilineal pods, share a well-defined culture and pass on skills from one generation to the next.
.
.
.
I have no idea why, but there have been a number of popular science articles saying that killer whales aren't whales, that they're "dolphins" instead... ALL DOLPHINS ARE WHALES. They're all odontocetes (toothed whales).
.
.
.
This skull was located in Pictons Maritime Museum (NZ).

A small, 5 million year old whale vertebrae I found a few days ago in #baysidemelbourne ...
.
.
.
The rippled bone on the surface of the centrum (epiphysis) is fused to the main body of the vertebrae, indicating that this animal was (at the least) of sub-adult/adult size before it died.

My favourite part of today was photographing some of @creswellcrags' collections.

Inspired by @mikeharrisonfossils here's a massive #throwback to me fossil hunting at Charmouth beach circa 2009.

I still wear that hat when I go #fossil hunting 😂

Fossil hunting is a great way to spend a day outside with family and friends! In the UK, anything found on public land is fair game (though please if you find something exciting, contact a palaeontologist, museum or university about it!) though it's worth checking local rules about access and the tools you can use. For example, #Charmouth is an SSSI (a site of special scientific interest) and while you can bring and use hammers on loose rocks, hammering the cliffs and bedrock is forbidden.
.
.
Good luck and have fun hunting!

To borrow from the Jesuits: Give me a child by the age of 7 and I’ll give you a #palaeontologist for life! I found my first #fossil aged 6. How old were you with your first find?

This a picture of me when I was 7 years old and I found my first vertebra. That day was the first time i ever went to lyme regis. It wasn't my first time fossil hunting but after that trip i really started loving fossil hunting. It was on a guided tour with the lyme regis museum and of course paddy Howe.

Following along with the sharing of old fossil hunting photos (@mikeharrisonfossils & @fascinatingfossils ), here’s my contribution from 1974. Although my Dad labelled this as “fossicking at Lyme Regis” I suspect I was actually rock pooling. I did find my first three pyrite ammonites at Charmouth, in the background, on that holiday though 🙂. Still have them, and I went fossil hunting again in Lyme this year, 45 years on, with @lymeregisfossils .

Pyrite ammonites from the Jurassic Coast, gleaming in the winter sun. I collected all of these beautiful little fossil shells from the beaches of the Jurassic Coast before the sea destroyed them. Looking for a last minute Christmas present for the fossil nerd in your life? Check out my shop (link in my bio) to see what fossils I have on offer. I used to love going to fossil shops when I was a kid, and had a rock, mineral and fossil collection from about the age of five! Nothing much has changed except that my collection is a bit bigger!

This little raptor is much too small to tackle a fully grown hadrosaur, and couldn’t believe her luck when she stumbled across one that had died of natural causes. Of course, she’s acting like she brought it down single-handed, and who can blame her!
