  1. Hello, I am considering adding a French egg, but would like a look to see that it isn't composited and seems ago. This is labelled as Cairanoolithus, from Herault. Now, most French eggs I see are scrambled like this one. Would calling it an egg be accurate--or is it more, partial eggshell? Given the fact it's broke, I assume this is the remains of a hatched egg? Or is the damage on these done pre-fossilisation? Also--just to confirm that a smooshed egg like this, it's the remains of ONE single egg, and not the shattered remains of two or multiple eggs that are all mashed together
  2. Hi, A couple of months ago I found this egg like fossil/stone. Location: Doesburg Holland, most likely Pleistocene deposit layer, exposed due to sand mining The shape is symmetrical, and tapert, with crack lines, and small cracked bits. The outer surface looks layerd and even thickness. Furthermore, it looks like a bone/teeth line is near the surface/is penetrating it. I've attached a series of photos and a 3d model scan. Reference size is 10 eurocent. What do you guys think? Merci Gr J

    Is this a dinosaur egg? ID help

    Hello guys, I was rock climbing and hiking this last weekend and found this egg. It was partially buried. What caught my attention was the shape and weight. It looks very very light for a normal rock.

    NJ Rock or Fossil

    Hello all, my name is Sam and I'm new on this site. I need help trying to figure out if this rock I just found yesterday is a fossilized egg or nut. Measures 1 3/4" in length and 1 1/2" in height. I think it's a fossilized nut. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    Please Help ID Egg Fossil

    I purchased a box of rocks and minerals at an estate sale. I noticed the translucent texture of this "rock" and have never seen such an appearance of a rock. While studying the fossil it appears to be some sort of egg fossil. I have no prior experience with fossils other than buying some at museums as a child. But this fossil is fascinating to me! I humbly ask for opinions as to what type of fossil I have. Thank you all in advance for sharing!

    Is this a fossil dino (or other) egg?

    Found on Rodborough Common (Glous) with my daughter while looking for fossils - never seen one like this before

    3D Eggs?

    Does anyone know where to look up 3D scanned dinosaur eggs? Are there museums with open access to eggs then have scanned? I've been trying to locate some models to 3D print, but they seem few and far between.
  8. Hello, A second egg Im interested in-- an, at first glance, much better one. It's Oviraptor, from Ganzhou, Jiangxi, China. Edit - size - 17.5cm It looks to have really good shell coverage, but am a little concerned at the cracks, whether some of it might be shells from other eggs glued in place. I'd love to hear others thoughts on it.
  9. This is supposed to be a Hadrosaur egg from China, from an older collection. I'd appreciate any input. From the images I've seen its not obvious, but more convincing than some fakes I've seen. I'm afraid other than 'Hadrosaur' and 'China' I don't have any further information.
  10. Hello, Any thoughts on this? It is a Hadrosaur egg from Guangdong, China. 9.4cm x 8.8 x 6. I know it's far from the best egg you'll see--but I was offered it for a good price, less than even I've seen poor conditioned eggs go for) . But does anyone see any restoration/composite to it? Now, I wish to check--the grey is eggshell, still partially covered by matrix? Or is the grey bits, which I am thinking is ill-cleaned eggshell, actually not eggshell either? I'm considering it for a piece for my desk at work here in Taipei--got my eye on a better
  11. So I was on an auction website and an egg caught my eye it was stated it was 1 million to 2.58 million years old. It was also stated that this egg was found with other eggs in the nest, and they were selling the other eggs separately. I did research on it- the name on the website as a Madagascar Abrupt Giant Tortoise - egg - Aldabrachelys abrupta. When I searched for it the shell of the presumed fossil popped up and that's about it no art work no skulls no other fossils just the shell, so I thought you guys might know.
  12. Hi there, I'm looking at possibly buying another saurpod egg. The seller identified it as a hypselosaurus priscus egg, Provence basin france. From the last post I did not on eggs I understand eggs are specifically attributed to hypselosaurus anymore? I'm looking for a museum quality piece as my other egg examples are just decent. Please give me your thoughts and let me know if you require more photos Thank you!
  13. I found this encased in limestone at a dig site in Wisconsin, USA. Its composition seems unusual for anything else at that dig site. It was deep inside limestone and most of the limestone easily pulled off with little effort. Is this an egg? It measures approximately 6.35cm x 4.5cm

    Hadrosaur Egg

    Hi there I’m new to this site ..... could this possibly be a Hadrosaur Egg? I found it down a long coastal track on the Wild Coast in Transkei South Africa. It’s extremely heavy! Many thanks in advance . Cheers. Kevin.

    Egg shape rock identification

    Hi I came across this rock near Marble bar Western Australia in a river bed. Can an anyone identify it for me is it a fossil?
  16. Found this morel hunting in an area that floods and with the lack of rain in Minnesota I was able to access this area. I was thinking it is some kind of petrified egg? It was in central Minnesota. It is heavy as a rock and as hard as one. I am sorry for the pictures, I will post more detailed pictures as soon as I have access to a camera. For now though the only thing I can say is my ring is exactly 1" in diameter. Thanks everybody

    Help with interesting piece

    Found this fairly deep about 20 - 30 feet in the ground well in thick clay. Other interesting pieces found but this, to me, was interesting as it seems to have been cracked open at the top and its shape. Found in East Feliciana Parish, Louisiana.

    Found these in the woods in st. Clair County Alabama. they were in a coal deposit I dug up. very small deposit. filled a five gallon bucket with coal. they vary in size. I hope they are eggs. some have fragments of shell on them and some do not. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Hey everyone! I posted this on a Facebook group and had some great responses. My question is, I recently purchased a segnosaur egg from a reputable dealer who has been selling Dino fossils for a long time now. I have read how some Dino eggs might be fake, and I figured I’d just ask the question and get your professional opinions. Because of the reputation of the dealer, I do believe it’s authentic. It’s not like I bought it off of online from a random person, but I still wanted to ask the question. What do you think? I appreciate your feedback. IMG_9607.MOV
  20. Hello, I've been after an egg for a while, and this one caught my eye. It's sold as Spheroolithus. 5.5 inch x 4.41 x 2.36 Seller messaged saying it is from Henan Province, China. Being sold by a Taiwan seller--not from China itself. Apologies for red line--it's blocking the sellers name. Thanks for the help
  21. Hello does this egg look real . Looks like its missing some shell and looks not to be prepped. Possibly an oviraptor egg? Is 18 cm long Thanks

    Is this an egg?

    Any clue what I have here? I think it's granite but have been told it's some kind of egg
  23. Hi team! I would really appreciate some advice on some eggs. Apologies if pics of the eggs aren’t high enough quality. Listed as Elongatoolithidae eggs. Any advice would be great. Thanks

    Is this legit? Seems too perfect. Egg.

    My father in law found this while poking around on our land were clearing in Wimberley, TX. I’m blown away by it, it’s so perfect I am perplexed. Is this real? I don’t know of anyone who’s been out on this previously non-cleared property that could have planted anything. What do y’all think? IMG_6501.MOV

    Some sort of egg?

    Interesting oval, multi-layered rock found on lakeshore in southern Minnesota. Could this be a fossil?
