  1. Opinions on these images? Mosasaur skull listed for $11,000, seems to good to be true for a size this big from what I’m seeing but I don’t know how to judge. It looks relatively real to me but wanted you guys to weigh in. It’s like 3 feet long.
  2. So I thought I would share my recent and dream fossil find. Mark Kemp prepared my precious find for me. When I found it on the beach the skull had a big blob on the top. For some reason the nodule had been formed in this shape, possibly preserving it well? Anyway, here it was as I found it. A nice heavy lump to carry back. I could see the front of the rostum (Jaw, and back of the skull poking out of the rock) After preparation Thank you

    Possible fossil

    Hello Everyone. I recently found a stone with unusual features. The stone is from the Bosna River, northern Bosnia and Herzegovina. Is that a fossil?
  4. Hi everyone, I’m new to this but am curious as to whether these are legit or not. I’d imagine they’d be way more expensive but I wasn’t sure if this website is legit or not, and I really do not want to get scammed if I eventually buy something like this. Does this forum have a list of credible websites/vendors?
  5. After much consideration; I decided to allow someone else, to introduce me to their local fossil rich area. At the Bone Valley Fossil Farm; the owners have used heavy equipment to remove the upper 12 feet of sandy topsoil. Doing so, exposes Megalodon era fossil layers. The fossil layer is then dug out with heavy equipment, and is piled up at wet screening wash stations on the owner's property. This is a paid access fossil site, and all necessary wet screening equipment is furnished for you. I found a good variety of fossils; during 6 1/2 hours of frantic, almost non
  6. Hi! I went on my first fossil hunt yesterday! Found two cool shells, some pretty quartz, a few rocks but no fossils. Here are my finds! I was wondering what i should look for when hunting along and in the potomac! Was hard to find stuff when I wasn’t sure what to look for haha! ^^ im 16 so I cant go often but im going to be begging my parents to take me again soon because i found pottery too! (Its not old but i find it interesting ^^)
  7. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't live near good fossil deposits, which means that i'm not the only one that has to buy or trade fossils from time to time to build the collection. I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing thread to share our latest great score that we didn't personally find in nature, a thread to share your latest fossil purchase or trade. Let's see what you found at the local fossil show, online or anywhere else other than in the ground.
  8. Found on the Kansas River. Here is what sure looks like a small horse lower leg bone and hoof. It has turned to mostly fossilized rock. I could be dreaming and it just be a plant fossil of some sort but it is hollow and the bottom of the "hoof" is indented just like a hoof pad area. All thought are welcome!

    Not sure what this is...

    Hello, I'm new. This was found in Central Louisiana, in a rock/dirt pit. Between 30-40 ft. deep. Other fossils were found in the same area. It was under a thick (around 10 ft.) layer of reddit. Please be patient with me. I'm new, but have found some great fossils from this new dig. thanks
  10. Hello everyone, I have recently acquired this Barasaurus fossil from Madagascar and I was wondering if it really is 100% natural as the seller has stated many times to me. I have read a couple of threads in this forum regarding Barasaurus fakes but still have many doubts. If possible, I would greatly appreciate any input from this forum’s experts regarding this piece. Do you think it's real? Please find attached some photos and thanks a lot for your help:
  11. Hi! I bought this trilobite, which i identified as a Phacops- i bought it at a small mine that sold rocks, small gems, and fossils. I bought this [price redacted], but now have begun to doubt its authenticity.

    Fossil Found in Frio River

    Hello everyone. I was at the Frio River and found a symmetrical bone-like fossil after weeks of heavy rainfall. It was found in the plunge pool. The shape of this is very interesting and it is very porous, though I can’t tell if it’s bone or some type of sea specimen. Any help with identification is very much appreciated.
  17. Hi, one of my friend sent me photos. And he said it’s from Spinosauridae. But I don’t really know it and it’s original or not. Ma I know the preservation of it is good or not, please? Thank you
  18. Hi. I took close up pictures for a fibula bone of Morocco. I agree that’s impossible to know what does it belongs to. But I hope to know the Fibula bone is original or combination. If it is combined by several bones, would you please tell me the combination parts, please? Please check the attached files. Thank you

    Identification Help - Backyard Find

    Hello, I was outside this morning in my backyard here in Tennessee digging up a stump. I found this odd looking stone/fossil about 3ft deep. It stands up on a desk perfectly flat with no wiggle. Its about 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches tall and wide and a little over a pound in weight. It has some interesting markings. Not sure what it is. Thanks for you help!
  23. I found this in Schoharie County. Having a hard time figuring out what it is. Any help would be wonderful.
