    New Info on Dinosaur Eggs

    Fossil dino bones predate fossil dino eggs by over 100 million years? Wow. New studies of some of the earliest dino eggs shed light on egg evolution. https://www.google.com/amp/s/phys.org/news/2019-03-world-oldest-eggs-reveal-dinosaur.amp
  6. I was burned by buying two fake eggs and was hoping someone could recommend some reputable sources to buy a real dinosaur egg, i have collected a few dinosaur fossils over the last 5 years and really would like to add an egg to my collection. any help or advise would be very much appreciated.
  7. Below is an odd study that should amuse fossil collectors. Apostolou, M., 2011. Why men collect things? A case study of fossilised dinosaur eggs. Journal of Economic Psychology, 32(3), pp.410-417. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227419210_Why_men_collect_things_A_case_study_of_fossilised_dinosaur_eggs https://www.academia.edu/1005561/Why_men_collect_things_A_case_study_of_fossilised_dinosaur_eggs https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0167487011000286 Yours, Paul H.
  8. I saw these beauties on a popular auction site a few days ago. They are described as authentic dinosaur eggs. Clearly, they are anything but, and they appear to be simple septarian nodules. Anybody interested in how to determine whether a dinosaur egg is fake or not should do a forum search, since the subject has been comprehensively covered. This first one, you'll be fascinated to know, actually shows the preserved embryo. They have a couple of hundred watchers, and are already at a remarkable price for ordinary rocks. I informed t
  9. This guy wants to sell these eggs to me but I don’t know if they are real or not someone please help. And if they are real what kind of eggs are they?
  10. What are the recommended books or online resources on dinosaur egg fossils? I heard of a few book titles - both are written by the same author Kenneth Carpenter. What are your recommendation? 1. Dinosaur eggs and fossils. 2. Eggs, Nests and Baby Dinosaurs. Thanks.

  12. This egg is from Hunan, China. Fake or genuine?
  13. Any idea if these are dinosaur eggs or concretion. The inside is completely crystallized like quartz. It is from Ganzhou, Jiangxi of China.

    Dinosaur Eggshells, Alberta

    The paper describe a diverse dinosaur eggshell assemblage from the St. Mary River Formation of southern Alberta. Its paywalled but presented here to show others that it exists. Three theropod eggshell types (Continuoolithus cf. C. canadensis, Montanoolithus cf. M. strongorum, and Prismatoolithus cf. P. levis) and one ornithopod (Spheroolithus cf. S. albertensis), are reported from Albertan exposures of the St. Mary River Formation. Paywalled http://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/cjes-2017-0195#.WnjKE66nHIV @HamptonsDoc @-Andy-
  15. Hi, I often see sellers from China wetting the dinosaur eggs to highlight the shell structure. Does washing up of the egg fossil damage the fossil or increase the risk of breaking apart?

    Inherited Dinosaur Egg

    So I inherited what i believe is a real dinosaur egg. Anyone disagree? The story is my older brother discovered it horseback riding somewhere in South Dakota. I don't have anymore information and need to know about getting it authenticated.
  18. A new oviraptorosaur discovery is out: http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/05/smuggled-dino-eggs-gave-birth-baby-dragons Beibeilong represents the third caenagnathid from Asia, further improving the fossil record of Asian caenagnathids and solving the mystery of the dino embryos in giant dinosaur eggs called Macroelongatoolithus. It's therefore apparent that giant egg-thief dinos were common in the Turonian-Maastrichtian interval.
  19. We see lots of dinosaur eggs from Asia, occasional eggs from France and very spotty from the Two Medicine of Montana and Alberta. Lets not also forgot the tons of mimic ones. This month's SVP journal describes the first fossil egg and eggshells from the Hell Creek Formation. The paper states that despite over 100 years of intense exploration, the terrestrial rocks of the Hell Creek Formation are void of fossil eggs. The paper describes the first fossil egg and additional eggshell fragments from the Formation. The two-layered structure of the smooth 1600 µm thick eggshell o
