Marine animals that lived 183 million years ago have been discovered in a farmer’s field in Gloucestershire.

210 lb ammonites

Pictured is an ammonite that has been described as a “behemoth” and as “truly titanic”.

A huge fossil weighing almost 210 pounds and about two feet in diameter was found on the Isle of Wight in 2020.

The ammonite was discovered and recovered from the surrounding rock by university students Jack Wonfort, 19, and Theo Vickers, 21.

Ammonites are extinct marine creatures belonging to the mollusk family, as are sea snails, and Mr. Wonfort and Mr. Vickers called their specimen “an amazing example.”

The 210-pound (96 kg) fossil is believed to be about 115 million years old and she lived during the Cretaceous period.

Iguanodon tail

The fossilized remains of a dinosaur believed to be an Iguanodon have been found at the base of a cliff near Brightstone.

The fossilized tail of a dinosaur that roamed the world 125 million years ago was discovered at the foot of a crumbling cliff on the Isle of Wight in 2019.

The remains of a dinosaur believed to be an Iguanodon have been found at the base of a cliff near Brightstone.

But excavations and attempts to salvage the tail for detailed analysis are currently thwarted by security threats posed by the crumbling rock.

About six vertebrae are believed to have been found, and local media reported that the dinosaur died and was exposed to the elements for several months before being buried by a severe flash flood.

130-million-year-old therapod footprint discovered

Fossil hunters claim a dinosaur footprint found on the Isle of Wight beach by Storm Ciara is from a 130-million-year-old therapod.

Fossil hunters claim a dinosaur footprint found on the Isle of Wight beach by Storm Ciara is from a 130-million-year-old therapod.

It is believed that the imprint was left by neovenator – a predator that could reach 25 feet (7.6 m) in length and weigh up to 4400 pounds (2000 kg).

The footprint was discovered by the White Coast Fossil Group at Sandown Bay on the island’s southeast coast on February 12, 2020.

Chinese pterodactyl

A pterosaur fossil, commonly found in China and Brazil, has been found on the Isle of Wight.

The fossilized jaw of a flying reptile was spotted by a dog breeder in Sandown Bay, on the island’s southeast coast.

The specimen, dubbed “Wightia declivirostris”, had no teeth in its jaw and belongs to a group of pterosaurs known as “tapejarids”.

Superpterosaur 125 million years old with a wingspan of 20 feet

With a 20-foot wingspan and a whopping 650 pounds, the giant pterosaur made an impressive figure soaring through Jurassic skies.

And 125 million years later, the massive size of the beast continues to amaze scientists who discovered the remains of one of the beasts wedged deep into the rocks of the Isle of Wight.

The Hatzegopteryx fossil has shed new light on this magnificent species, which some say was the largest flying creature of the period.

Tiny crocodile that roamed the Earth 126 million years ago

In the photo: a 126 million year old crocodile.

The photo shows the remains of a crocodile aged 126 million years.

A new species of crocodile that lived 126 million years ago was discovered after a pair of skull fragments were found in 2014 three months apart.

Two crocodile fossil fragments were discovered by two different collectors, leading to the discovery of an ancient button-toothed crocodile.

It may have been only two feet long, but this tiny crocodile walked with dinosaurs and had sharp teeth.

Based on two fragments that were collected together on the Isle of Wight and measured about 11 cm in total length, it is believed that the length of the animal from nose to tail was about 2 feet.

Part of the back half of a crocodile’s skull was found on the beach near Sandown on the island by collector Diana Trevarten.

A crow-sized flying dinosaur that lived 115 million years ago

A little five-year-old girl named Daisy Morris discovered the fossil on the Isle of Wight in 2008.

Paleontologists later examined the remains and found that it was a previously unknown type of pterosaur.

It was named Vectidraco Daisymorrisae after Daisy was roughly the size of a crow and belonged to a previously unknown phylum of pterosaurs.

The flying reptile appeared 115 million years ago in the Lower Cretaceous period.

With a pelvic length of 40 mm, the new animal would have a total length of 350 mm and a wingspan of 750 mm, according to the researchers.

The pterosaur has now been donated to the Natural History Museum.
