  1. Hello! I'm a new member with a question. I hope it's ok for me to ask this question and I hope it's according to all the rules I've been a fan of the forum for a while, but just mainly browsed a bit, but now I've got a bit of a problem... I'm basically a giant newbie when it comes to this, so please treat me like one (I hope you don't mind). So I've always had a very big fascination for the woolly rhinoceros. It's been a dream for me to own a rhino skull one day, so I had an opportunity recently and decided to go for it. I bought a damaged skull,
  2. Hi all. I posted about a week ago in this forum with what I thought was a Maclurites fossil I found in the Galena Group in Illinois: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/116602-ordovician-maclurites/. Others agreed with me. There are two parts of this fossil that I wonder about. One is fairly large and may be a piece where the outer shell of the Maclurites broke to reveal an inner layer. It may also be a second specimen that was fossilized along with the Maclurites, replacing part of it. (I bet there's a term for that, but I don't know it!) This part of the specimen stands out by vir

    Broken Keich Fossil

    Hi, I ordered a keich fossil online and it got broken in the mail. I can fit the pieces back together pretty tightly. Can I just use regular crazy glue? Or gorilla gel? Or is there a special way that fossils need to be repaired? I'm new to the hobby and this was my first expensive fossil purchase.

    Not identified lot

    Hello Sorry to say but i dont have experience in fossiles. Anyone able to identify these have all my thanks. I live in a mining town in Serbia. I was hiking and i stumbled upon a strange stone. It was the bottom one. I took a look around soon i found two more, the one above it and the one to the right. Those 3 pieces were the outer layer that fell of from the one on the left. The one on the top is different from all. Not far from there i found two more. The left one On this picture it reminds me of a big pepper cut in half since it has that colorin

  6. I have recently had tree down in my yard and somehow the fall knocked down my only Mosasaur tooth! Thankfully, it was a clean break. Now I am left wondering how to fix it? What type of glue (preferably cheap) should I use? I got some Gorilla Glue, but I am worried what could happen if I don’t use the proper mixture. Just for my own personal curiosity, what could happen (besides the glue not holding) if the right chemical mixture isn’t used?
  7. Hello everyone, I recently received this large 14inch ammonite and the shipper had no care in the world to put even an ounce of protection thus this is the result I'm not experienced with much prep and not confident superglue would cut it so what would you all recommend to help repair this specimen as well as clean off some of the dirt/dust layer coating alot of it?

    Iowa Mystery Bone ID

    Need help identifying what appears to be a tooth or bone of some sort. Found in the far northeastern part of Iowa (almost South Dakota) about 8 inches deep in the sandy shore of the Big Sioux River. The left and right side appear to be very slightly broken off, as well as what I would assume to be the bottom.

    Is this a chunk of mastodon tooth?

    My wife found this yesterday at Myrtle Beach, SC. I'm thinking maybe a broken off piece of mastodon. What do folks think?
  10. Hello all this is my first post. I recently came into possession of what I believe to be a Allosaurus rib fossil. Unfortunately the specimen snapped in a few places during transit. This dose however give me the opportunity to post pictures of the broken sections. Not exactly what I was expecting to see, but then again this is my first large fossil so I don't really know what I was expecting to see. some information I was provided from the previous owner: '"last 6 inches of the distal end, is restorated. The rest of the rib was found largely intact. Found on private land in
  11. Hi everyone, unfortunately today the tip of my spinosaurus tooth has broken off - its just under 7" and about 1-2" have broken off. I've read on here that paleobond is a really great adhesive to fix this however, being from the UK I've had a look and they don't ship to where I live - I have emailed if they are able to change this waiting on a reply. I was just wondering if anyone knows in the UK if there is anywhere I can go or a similar type of adhesive that will work just as well? Thank you in advance for any replies

    Titantothere Teeth Repair

    Hi, I recently purchased some fossil titanothere teeth on eBay. I don't think the seller had ever sold or shipped a fossil before, when it arrived and I picked up the box it became immediately clear that it hadn't been packed well. When I opened it my worst fears were immediately confirmed. Lying there in a single piece of bubble wrap was my fossil in pieces . I'm hoping to repair it and I was thinking of using some plaster and paint certain parts black to repair it but people here are much more experienced than me and usually have better ideas then I do. Here are some photos:

    "The appearance of these sharks are largely unknown. However, author and illustrator Ray Troll mentions in his book, Sharkabet, about how paleontologist Rainer Zangerl once discovered a large shale slab containing a long, eel-like fish covered in long, spine-like denticles, only to have it dry out and crumble into dust. As such, according to Zangerl's account, Troll reconstructs Listracanthus as resembling a tremendous, fiercely-bristled frill shark." http://fossil.wikia.com/wiki/Listracanthus Oh my GOD!!!!!!! How frustrating!!!! To actually have uncovered an imprint of an ext
  14. I accidentally dropped part of my collection I was moving my tray to wipe the table and I let one of my favorite little Concretions roll right off and on to the floor. I’m so dumb!! It was part of a growing Concretion collection I started that was never going to be opened. On the bright side (if you can call it that) it was pretty to see how glittery it is on the inside.

    What tooth is this?

    A short while ago my dad accidently dropped the tooth pictured below and I would quite like to replace it but I have no idea what it's from! -Dinosaur?
  18. Greetings, I recently bought a beautiful Spinosaurus tooth that was previously restored as some parts were obviously broken and put together with some sort of brown putty which looks like dirt or rock fragments. The problem is that the tooth had an accident a few days ago (it fell from the stand) and it broke again. I put the parts together with super glue but the cracks are now wide and visible and I would like to hide them a little bit by using some putty or resin, I don't want the tooth to look perfect and unbroken, just to look like before it fell, like there is some dirt or rock fragments
  19. My second question tonight. I found a few shark tooth shapes that seemed interesting enough to not toss back in the Big Brook this weekend. I was hoping for some advice. One seems to me to be a fractured tooth with mostly the root remaining (the larger black one). It feels dense and hard like a stone. I couldn't tell at the site with my bad eyes but there are some groves in part of the "tooth" that help make it look like something of the tooth variety. It certainly appears to be something significant, if only a piece of it. The smallest black item is hard like a rock as well yet se

    Megalodon repair suggestions

    I have been gifting some Florida fossil sharks teeth that I have found to the 8 year old son of my technician. He adores these fossils. So to do something different this year I had noticed some Forum Members had been repairing broken Megalodon teeth and gave nice instructions. So I decided to fix a big one for him to gift at Christmas. A tooth that was only 67% present caught my on line eye due to it's LOW price ( 10 bucs). Even if I mess up the repair, I am only out pocket change. @Reptilia and @mattbsharks had great info on how to repair these teeth. The purpose of this post is to add to th

    Found this "cutted" fish years ago, it slept in a box in my barn, now I´ve prepared it but can´t imagine what had happened million years ago, the fossil is complete articulated but cutted! See the pictures from Positiv and Negative ( The Negative Para.1 I had coloured - the PosPara. 2 is the Original not coloured). Who has an explanation what happened? Thanks

    Cow shark tooth?

    I received a mosasaur jaw in matrix and I found something is the side which I think is a cow shark(Hexanchus) because of the formation but it is broken in half, it is from Morocco.

    Need your help - Is this bone?

    Hi, i need your help here. A buddy of mine found this on an old colonial era site. It actually goes back further. Artifacts such as old pewter spoons were found. Now I know that this is not a fossil, but knowing how knowledge this group is, do you think this is a bone? Few facts. 1) it does not stick to wet skin which I believe is one indicator? 2) there is no marrow 3) it has a layered look 4) part of the surface is flat to me it almost looks like a tobacco pipe bowl rather than bone. So -it is bone? thanks!!
  24. Hello everybody, I recently acquired a small and beautiful Rotuloidea which unfortunately fell on the floor and was damaged with a few cracks as you can see at the picture below. Does anybody know if is there any way to fix them or make them less visible please? Thank you very much.
