  1. Just ordred a kind of "cheap" and not so well prepped and maybe enhanced keichousaurus. Would be nice to get some opinions about the condition of this fossil. I know I should ask before buying but the financial damage isnt that bad and I`m quite cuurious about this fossil. Will be pretty interesting to compare it with my other keichosaurus, which was my first ever fossile and a few times more expensive beeing from triassica.
  2. Is this genuine? Any repairs? It is so perfect that I’m not sure if it’s genuine.
  3. Oldest Known Animals Reported From China

    Exclusive: 600-million-year old blobs are earliest animals ever found Fossils in China suggest that that some of the first animals in existence may have been carnivorous comb jellies similar to some species that still exist today. New Scientist, January 23, 20-19 https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg24132142-700-exclusive-600-million-year-old-blobs-are-earliest-animals-ever-found/?utm_campaign=RSS|NSNS&utm_source=NSNS&utm_medium=RSS&utm_content=news An older article is: https://www.newscientist.com/article/2180053-earliest-known-animal-was-a-half-billion-year-old-underwater-blob/ Unfortunately, it is behind a paywall. It was discussed today on BBC radio.

  5. Good morning to all my friends of my beloved TFF! I usually give my advice, I usually try to help everyone here with fossil eggs. But this time I can not help myself with this egg maybe Spheroolithidae - "Segnosaur" Egg... I'm blinded by the smoke curtain emanated from the flames of the fire called: "I want, I wish it to be real"! So as it is for me, I am afraid of being influenced by myself. So I ask the help of all, please, you take the sales out of my eyes and that you help me to make a good judgment. I thank you all! The seller is a person I trust and I've done a lot of business with him. And the price, if I may say, $ 120.00, and if it's even real, I believe it's a fair price. All the help is extremely welcome, but: Please, I also invoke the help of my dear friends: @Crazyhen @CBchiefski @HamptonsDoc @-Andy- @steelhead9
  6. I've been looking at this Hadrosaur egg from the Kaoguo formation in China, and while it seems alright to me I don't have any experience with dino eggs. What do you guys think?
  7. crab ID

    Just curious. I keep seeing these hand mined boney crab fossils from the green river formation from Chinese sellers on an auction site. I have also seen them listed as from Madagascar. They don't look like green river fossils. Just wondering if they are real and where they actually come from.
  8. Egg Id

    Hi Forum Got a Chance to buy an Egg for a quite a reasonable Price. The Seller told me he bought the egg years ago from China and bought a whole nest with 12 eggs then. Would be great to know more about it, if its possible withe the attached Images. Does anybody has experience with prepping an egg like this? Would you recommend this for a beginner? Thanks
  9. Tsinania trilobite China - info?

    I got this from the usual place but it came with very little info (the page might have had the info but I failed to write it down and now I can't find anything on it... I sense that it will be another one of those hours-long sleuthing sessions, so I thought it's easier to ask here ) All I know is, Tsinania sp, China. I gather it's Upper Cambrian. No idea of the formation or specific location within China. Very soft powdery matrix! I can try some better pics if required.
  10. New choristodere from China

    A new paper you may find interesting: Ryoko Matsumoto, Liping , Yuan Wang & Susan E. Evans (2019). The first record of a nearly complete choristodere (Reptilia: Diapsida) from the Upper Jurassic of Hebei Province, People's Republic of China. Journal of Systematic Palaeontology (advance online publication) doi:Â https://doi.org/10.1080/14772019.2018.1494220 https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/14772019.2018.1494220 Coeruleodraco is significant because it is the most complete Jurassic choristodere, considering that the exact relationships of Choristodera to other diapsids have remained contentious to this day given the dearth of early choristoderes. I know that the choristodere placement of Pachystropheus by Storrs and Gower (1993) has been questioned in recent papers due to the lack of skull remains, which preserve some diagnostic choristodere characters, and Lazarussuchus was considered the most primitive choristodere, a late-surviving basal one, until new material by Matsumoto et al. (2013) showed it to be more advanced than Cteniogenys.
  11. This question is directed at those of us who do buy fossils. Would you buy fossils from China? Legally, it seems questionable. They are highly available, which makes me wonder what is going on.
  12. Hello! Good afternoon for all my big family here in TFF ! I'm thinking of buying this Woolly Rhinoceros Tooth Fossil. But please, I would like to ask some questions before my purchase: 01) Can this Woolly Rhinoceros Tooth Fossil be a real fossil or is it a modern with mud and cement? 02) Anyone know what species of Woolly Rhinoceros exactly belongs this Tooth? 03) According to the seller (Yes, the seller is Chinese), this Tooth was discovered in Heilongjiang Province, China (20000 years - Pleistocene)... Does anyone know if this locality is correct, or is it another Mongolian tooth disguised as Chinese? I thank you for all the help I can get. @Crazyhen
  13. From the album Vertebrates

  14. I haven't bought this yet. I wanted to see if anyone thought it was a lost cause or has potential. All I know is that it is from China. If appears that it may be able to be cleaned up a bit, kind of like the green river fish...not that I have prepped any of those either.
  15. I am not aware of any other non-fish vertebrate fossil that is easily available fully articulated (correct me if I am wrong!) Why? What is so special about the Keichousaurus from China? Articulated reptiles seem to extremely rare, and yet there appears to be a enormous exception for the Keichousaurus!
  16. Hi, what do you think about this Chinese specimen of Psittacosaurus? Genuine?
  17. Hello, recently I have been quite inactive on the forums, it’s just that I haven’t quite had time and I was having some family affairs. But I’d like to share some photos of some fossils I recently acquired that were found in China. First off I’d like to start off with a Pterosaur tooth from Liaoning which I got, it is 1 and a half of a cm in length, a really cool specimen and something I don’t see too often.

  19. This Keichousaurus looks different than most; am thinking of buying it. What do you all think about it? Anything fake looking about it?
  20. Hello fossil experts! I am an underwater documentary filmmaker based in China. I came across a fossil wall in the underwater karst cave systems of Guangxi province this year and am hoping you can help shed some light on them for me, as I am admittedly not a fossil expert in any way. The fossil wall is approximately 25-40 meters underwater in the freshwater limestone cave systems in the mountains of central Guangxi province. I have not attempted to count them yet, and as far as I know no one has studying or catalogued them. The cave is well known in the cave diving community of China. But, as you can imagine, this is a pretty small community. I would appreciate any help identifying the type of fossils they may be, and any relevant information on approximate dates or the way in which they would have arrived in these cave systems. As I said, this in not my area of expertise, so all information is useful! (I am having attaching the photos with this post, so will attempt to post them separately) Thank you!
  21. Greetings all! im tempted to pull the trigger on this keichousaurus but I am hesitant due to being inexperienced with them. I see some white specks on the bone and I haven’t seen that before so it popped up some red flags however, I am not experienced with them nor do I know enough to confidently say real or fake. On the back of the matrix it has another smaller keichousaurus. Please let me know what you all think!

  24. The Bugaloos

    A recent online purchase. The only thing I know is it was shipped from China. Any chance on at least some sort of ID beyond "insect"? Seller doesn't give any information on it.
