  1. Hello all! I just wanted to share a Keichousaurus I got in the mail today. It was an Easter gift to myself. It is an acid prepped specimen. I was a little worried about it but it looks excellent! The only noticeable paint is on the calcite line connecting the neck vertebrae together, which I have no problems with. Otherwise it looks complete, with all of its toes intact, and I wanted to share, because I am excited about it. I included pictures. There are a few tiny teeth in its mouth, but they didn't show up on camera. If you see anything off with it that I haven't noticed, please let me know. Thank you all!
  2. I was shown the photo of a juvenile Keichousaurus from the type locality in Guizhou this morning and was asked to check its authenticity. It looks real at a glance but when I look closer, it looks suspicious. I was told that this is a man-made one. Take a look.
  3. Chinese Trilobite

    I have seen similar looking Trilobites from China listed as Illaenula vietnamica & Ductina vietnamica (on different websites) Are both these names the same species?
  4. Bagaceratops ontogeny

    Hi, Is there a copy of the following paper that anyone would like to send me: Łukasz Czepiński (2019). Ontogeny and variation of a protoceratopsid dinosaur Bagaceratops rozhdestvenskyi from the Late Cretaceous of the Gobi Desert. Historical Biology: An International Journal of Paleobiology. in press. doi:10.1080/08912963.2019.1593404. With respect to Bagaceratops ontogeny, there's been previous rumblings in the literature about Gobiceratops, Lamaceratops, Magnirostris, and Platyceratops being just individual or growth stages of Bagaceratops because they're not just similar but also based each on 1 specimen.

  7. Hello! Well following the thread of the other post I found 3 eggs of better quality but much more expensive ... What do you think is better preserved and is of better quality? Right now I can only choose one ... Thank you so much.
  8. Hi there folks, I'm with some doubts regarding amber again. I've recently bought a set of burmese amber from a seller from China on that auction web site. I feel I paid very little for the set with 20 pieces and random inclusions (really random, there are about five of them that are really bad, but also one piece really good). Can you guys tell me what's an accetable price for a set like that? (I don't know if this kind of thread is allowed here, if not. Please, let me know and I'll delete it) If anyone could PM me I'd like some info on the seller. I'm attaching some pictures of the kind of pieces I got, so you can have an idea if it's real or not. Thanks in advance, Juliano
  9. Hello! I'm interested in buying a dinosaur egg. I found this egg from China. Do you think it's authentic? It's good quality? Thank you so much https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xLYvrS5sKyDwF64b48ziMeRmB5o_n-Ig/view?usp=drivesdk

  14. So not too long ago, I acquired a Protoceratops tooth from a German fossil gallery. And I have been looking for more fossils of the species for comparison both in price-range and rarity, but cannot seem to find any other protoceratops fossils anywhere. Does anyone know if these teeth are ever sold online? And have I perhaps made a heck of a buy? I'm not sure if the fossils from the Gobi Desert are rare or just hard to come by, unless you live in Asia. Any information would be appreciated, thanks! (Will put up some pictures of the tooth when I get home later)
  15. Hello, Could this little fish have been a bit painted or does it seem totally natural preserved? Thanks for the help!

  20. Fossil coral?

  21. Chinese Cambrian Hyoliths

    I just received these small Cambrian hyoliths from China. The seller was unable to provide any specific ID, and does not know what formation they come from. All he knew was that they come from near Woniu Mountain, Linyi City, Shandong Province. They are about a quarter inch long each. Any thoughts?
  22. Tree Fern?

    This is said to be a Triassic tree fern from Guangxi, China. It measures about 31cm in diameter. Any idea if it is a tree fern or other fern?
  23. Do you think this is a genuine skeleton of psittacosaurus?
  24. Hi all, I've been searching the internet pretty thoroughly the last few weeks, checking everywhere multiple times a day to find a low-quality keichousaurus to practice prepping on, (knowing that 95% of specimens are fabricated or heavily restored) and I think I may have found one. The price is so reasonable that I really don't care whether or not it's partially fake or restored, as it will make a decent display or even a gift if it turns out to be 100% fabricated. So I suppose I'm wondering how much of this specimen looks fabricated, and if it would even be possible to attempt an air abrasive or acid prep for this guy? How rare is it to fabricate or even partially restore a keichousaurus that's still mostly covered in shale?
