The yorkshire coast is full of jurassic treasures. in fact, pick the right beach and you can’t fail to find something that last breathed life 175 million years ago. this is a quick video at port mulgrave where beautiful metallic-coloured ammonites (dactylioceras) are in plentiful supply but will need a bit of preparation to remove the concretion matrix that traps them in. i’ll be tackling this when i’m back in the us. #ammonite #ammonites #yorkshire #portmulgrave #whitby #northyorkshire #yorkshirecoast #jurassic #jurassiccoast #jurassiccoastline #geology #metallic #fossil #fossils #fossilhunting #fossilhunter #fossilart #fossillovers #fossiladdict #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleontology #paleoart #extinct #extinction #evolution #prehistoric #jurassicworld #beach

This is the face of ancient britain. scientists have reconstructed the head of the oldest complete skeleton ever found in britain, known as the cheddar man. his dna revealed he had dark skin and blue eyes. cheddar man lived 10,000 years ago and his name comes from the fact he was found in a cave in the cheddar gorge, close to where the famous cheese originated. 📷: jonathan brady/pa wire #history #fossil #prehistoric #human #science #bbcnews

This is an incredible 3d preservation of the skull of a stenopterygius - an extinct marine reptile genus within the order ichthyosauria. this specimen is from the early jurassic (180myo) and was found in the famous holzmaden shale of germany. this massive skull would have come from a beast about 4m in length. it’s super elongated beak, packed with teeth, made it an awesome hunter of fish, cephalopods and other marine organisms. got to see this last week while on a trip to zurich university’s museum of palaeontology. #stenopterygius #ichthyosaur #ichthyosaurs #marinereptile #extinct #extinction #evolution #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #skull #fossil #fossils #fossilart #fossillovers #fossiladdict #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleoart #paleontology #predator #prehistoric #holzmaden #jurassic #jurassicworld #zurichuniversity #germany #switzerland #museumofpalaeontology #zurich #swipeable

Managed to pop into the university of zurich’s museum of palaeontology briefly today. it’s got an incredible collection of oligocene mammals on display. i’m not sure of the history of how such a collection from the badlands of wyoming and south dakota found its way to switzerland but it’s amazing to see. this is an enormous skull of a 30 million year old titanothere (brontops) in near perfect condition including the large bone protrusions that titanotheres are known for on their snout. love seeing these up close! #titanothere #brontops #brontotherium #skull #skeletonsofinstagram #fossil #fossils #fossilart #fossillovers #fossiladdict #oligocene #wyoming #southdakota #badlands #whiteriver #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleoart #paleontology #zurich #museum #universityofzurich #switzerland #extinct #extinction #evolution #mammal #prehistoric #nature #science

"dinosaurs in their time" exhibit in the carnegie mueseum of natural history! i've studied and had a love for paleontology from a very young age. i've had the dream of one day having the opportunity to visit a museum where i'd get to see a comparison of the structure of these prehistoric creatures and myself. it was fascinating! i didn't want to leave and was in ashtonisment to learn more and to have one of my childhood dreams come true! i hope to visit again one day! "about 75% of the more than 230 objects on display are original fossils from one of the finest paleontological collections in the world, and most of the exhibition’s dinosaur skeletons are real, not replicas. several of these skeletons—including those of the iconic dinosaurs apatosaurus louisae, diplodocus carnegii, and tyrannosaurus rex—are holotypes, the original specimens upon which their respective species are based." #prehistoric #carneige #paleontology #pittsburgh #museum #naturalhistorymuseum #naturalhistory #dinosaurs #fossils #paleontologist #learn #science #dream @carnegiemnh

Those other synthetoceras sketches were bothering me, so i decided to make a better one. i'd say i pulled it off here's an art tip: don't draw when you're tired & half asleep. it won't end well #drawing #sketch #synthetoceras #prehistoric #cartoon

This chlorite stone bracelet was originally dated at 40,000 years old, but some scientists now suggest it may be as old as 70,000 years. it’s believed to have been crafted by denisovans, an extinct branch of early humans. it contains sophisticated drill holes, signs of grinding, boring and polishing, technologies typical of the neolithic era which began 12,000 years ago. even at the more recent date, its existence challenges modern understanding of human development and early technologies. pretty neat stuff... • • • • • #smallwonders#jewelry#jewelryofig#jewelryaddict#silverjewelry#instajewelry#jewelryofinstagram#handmadejewelry#naturejewelry#schmuck#bijoux#jewelrymaker#amazing#polishing#themoreyouknow#drill#sciencerocks#earlyman#earlyhumand#tools#gemstone#crytal#adornment#prehistoric#bracelet#technology#neolithic#crystals#green#chlorite

The botm xenoceratops sculpt is off to be molded today by the very capable jeremy monz! before seeing it on it's way though, i took a few photos with other toys to show how it scales in comparison. #beastsofthemesozoic #dinosaur #actionfigures #ceratopsian #toys #sculpting #sizecomparison #prehistoric #reptiles #animals #naturalhistory #xenoceratops
