    An archosaurian egg ?

    Hello everyone, I am a Belgian student in biology, and I love paleontology. Last week, I was walking on a slag heap near my home in the town of Marcinelle, at the coal mine called "Bois du Cazier". My attention was mainly focused on fossils of carboniferous plants (sigilaria, cordaites, calamites, etc ...). But at one point, I picked up this pretty little pebble which seemed to me to be a fossilized archosaurian egg. The slag heaps do not really respect the order of the geological layers, so it is very difficult for me to pin a year on it.
  2. Hello guys . I can i get some opinions on these two eggs They came from an old collection. So they say The first was labelled as a protoceratops 14.5cm The second one is labelled tabosaurus 17.5 cm Thanks

    Is this a fossil?

    Hi guys, I have found an egg-like potential fossil, but I am totally amateur to the topic yet a very intuitive person, and as I was googling how to know if it really is a fossil or not I have stumbled upon this forum and thought to start a thread. Please help me find out if this is a fossil or just a pseudo one
  4. The Basic Dinosaur Egg Guide Many people often mistake a concretion for an egg, to help clarify what is a concretion, and what is a real egg, here is a guide. A quick overview with examples: How to spot a concretion: How are they different from eggs? A concretion is a rather common rock made of tightly compressed minerals. Typically, concretions are a smooth sphere or oval with little to no surface texture or just a few bumps. Often nearly a perfect sphere, sometimes more of an oval. In a concretion, there

    Crocodile Egg or Sea Urchin?

    During a trip to Egypt I found this potential fossil near the city of Aswan between the banks of the Nile River and Sahara Desert. I had thought it might have been a meteor and the sand fused around the meteor due to the Intense heat. But, I tested it with a magnet but there was absolutely no attraction. Therefore, I thought it might be a fossil given that I read about many fossils being discovered in the Sahara and the composition does appear to be any rock or stone that I've ever encountered. I assumed crocodile due to the spiky and bumpy texture, along with the historic prevalence of crocod
  6. Hello Fossil Friends, Saw this in the news today so thought I’d share: ******************** World's smallest dinosaur egg fossil discovered in Japan Source Link A team of researchers said Tuesday it has discovered the world's smallest dinosaur egg fossil, measuring about 4.5 centimeters by 2 cm, in western Japan. The fossil of the egg, estimated to have weighed only about 10 grams more than 100 million years ago, was found in a stratum dating back to the Early Cretaceous period in Tamba, Hyogo Prefecture, according to the
  7. Hi everyone, I've been hesitant to post this fossil on here for a while as I didn't know if I wanted to hear a response which would contradict what I had hoped this would be. However, I recognize that to maintain a reliable and accurate collection I would have to properly identify what I found. The fossil in question is a possible partial egg that I found last year in the White River formation of Wyoming (Late Eocene/Early Oligocene) w/PaleoProspectors. This formation is known to produce fossil bird and reptile eggs (in fact, someone found a large, complete egg on this ranch the week before I

    First egg from Antarctica

    https://phys.org/news/2020-06-egg-antarctica-big-extinct-sea.html I thought this was pretty cool (no pun intended).
  9. At first glance it looks real to me--mainly because it's not in the best condition. I figure if someone was gonna fake it, they'd do more than partially cover the egg 17.9cm x 7.8cm x 7.6 cm Described as an Elongatoolithidae egg. Thanks. I know it's not the best, but it's affordable enough so I don't have to dip into the budget I've set aside to get some verts and teeth.
  10. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a dinosaur egg with developing dinosaur. I have heard that dinosaur eggs with developing dinosaurs are extremely expensive so I am a little skeptical about this. Any thoughts on it?

    Tortoise Egg

    I'm trying to determine how long it takes for something like this to happen to a tortoise egg. Years, decades, hundreds of years? I found this Gopher Tortoise egg in the South Georgia/North Florida area. It is about the size of a ping pong ball, heavy and solid. It had been washed up in the rain and was found in soil that consists of a lot of sand, peat and clay. The egg appears "fossilized" or "petrified" for lack of a better term. The shell is firm and porcelain-like with a lot of scratches. I candled the egg to show where the air sack appears to remain after st
  13. Hello guys . I need some help. I just bought some eggs (i think) they were not to expensive so i had to take the risk before someone else got them I will try to post them one at a time Thanks in advance
  14. Afternoon all. Found this little stone amongst the gravel on the driveway. We've found many fossils in the gravel including Belemnites, shells etc. But we've never seen anything like this. The surface is fairly smooth but you can feel slight 'pitting'. The inner material is coarse and hard, with a similarity to sandstone. The object is about 3cm in all directions, and almost spherical. Any help would be appreciated.

    Fossil Egg

    Greetings. I'm new to this forum. I could use some help in identifying what I found while I was walking a dried creek bed today. In researching what I've found on the internet, I came up with possible fossilized dino egg. Could it be? Thanks! Tony Holmes
  16. Hello everyone! I'm here cause I've found this fossil in a vintage store before this pandemic..the owner of the store claims to have acquired it from a prestigious auction house.. and I would love to understand if it's real or fake.. he doesn't have so much information besides the dimensions of it.. 11cm H x 15cm W x 13cm D I would love to identify it! Thank you in advance and stay safe! Thanks
  17. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a oviraptor egg, seller claims to have taken it to a museum to have it examined. This looks a little different from other oviraptor eggs I have seen and I don’t really see signs of embryo. I would appreciate any input on it. It was found in Texas

    River Fossil England?

    Hello, I was walking by a river in Cheadle (Manchester England), when I found this - I thought that perhaps it is a fossilised bird egg and my son and I were very excited that we had potentially found something quite old? I would be very grateful if anyone could give more information - I did a bit of digging myself but only managed to become more confused. My 10-year-old and his mummy would be very grateful if you could share a bit of knowledge and expertise. Thank you!
  19. Hello, I was out walking for exercise during lockdown in the fields and found this egg like fossil on the surface. The farmer had been excavating topsoil from a ploughed field and using it to resurface a farm track. I have no idea what it is, could it possibly be a fossilized egg? I didn't realise finding stuff in fields was this exciting! Apoligies if the images are not up to standard. The outer material is red/orange, the inner material is dark grey Approx 2.8 CM Length, 2.1 CM Width, 1.3 CM Depth Thank You

    Spheroolithus egg?

    A local seller has a few for sale, I'm interesting in adding a second egg to my collection but know eggs, especially Chinese eggs, can often be pretty shady. Seller sent some closer photos than what is on his site. Egg 1 --Quite poor quality, so I will not be buying, but I have attached a pic in case it helps prove authenticity of others and has a tape measure showing overall size. Egg 2 - Top and bottom image. (Price tag is NOT USD by the way! I'm not about to splash almost 2 grand on it. Egg 3 - Seems to be not too good--lacking shell or lots of matrix, to my un

    Fossilised egg?

    Found on Beach bear Antalya Turkey.
  22. Hey guys, I saw this egg listed as fossilized dinosaur egg, I wasn’t really sure because eggs usually crystallize after being fossilized. I would appreciate your input. Thanks

    Is this an egg or a rock?

    My husband found this on the side of the road in South Texas. It really looks like some sort of egg to us or is it just a strange rock? It's about the size of my fist.
