  1. Dear dinosaur egg collectors, after buying my first spinosaurus tooth some weeks ago, I decided to look for a oviraptor egg. First I started reading threads in TFF where experts give hints to detect fake eggs (thanks for sharing your knowledge). Then I have read several threads where people ask if the eggs are real and I think I can detect most of the fake eggs now. But in this particular case I'm not sure if the egg below is real or fake? The egg shape is pretty wide from one angle. The shell is very complete and from my point of view the texture and pores continue aft

    Unknown fossil found on on beach

    We had a big storm on the Pacific coast of Baja California Mexico and there are a lot of fossils and native American artifacts that were exposed due to beach erosion , and I was hoping I could have some help ID some of the items. Fossilized: Eggs, crab, shells,bones, wood? This one is the one I can't figure out at all, it very heavy
  3. My boyfriend and I were walking along the railroad tracks down by the Mississippi river in Davenport,Iowa when my boyfriend happened to look down and see this rock or fossil whatever it may be were curious to find out we done some google lens searches a got a couple ideas but would like some help figuring it out
  4. Hello there! I'm collecting fossils since I was a kid and I have a question, so I hope anybody can help. I bought a fossil years ago at my local fossil and mineral fair in Germany from a maroccan trader. It should be a Spinosaurus vertebra. But I'm doubting about the authenticity. It was quite cheap. But it's a real vertebra? (and even from Spinosaurus?) Thank you! greetings, Lilian

    Micro Raptor

    I have some weak terrible pics of it, but I think this is a micro Raptor from the Triassic period, size of a cat, first time a bird evolved to dinosaur. I think it's curled up in a ball and died sunk to the bottom of the what use to b ocean for millions of years and was embedded in sand and limestone combined with the water replacing the nutrients of the fossil made it well preserved, similar to the way most matrix would house dino fossilis, except this isn't digging it out of a rock quarry somewhere, this was just a Rock at the bottom of the bottoms in a creek.
  6. Hello, some time ago I found a quite interesting fossil. The seller claims: This is an authentic Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus vertebra Measures about 30 centimeters Location: Maroco Upper Cretaceous Approximately 10% restoration What do you think about the fossil? Best regards
  7. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow
  8. Hi all, We were in the Yellow Cat/Poison Strip area this summer and came across what we think might be a dinosaur bone in the Poison Strip sandstone layer. We also found agate/jasper. Trouble is, the “bone” is an unusual shape and the petrified wood for the area supposedly has lost its grain structure, so I’m not sure what to say. Wondering if anyone else can chime in about these? thanks, Lloyd

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  10. Here is some of my first 6 months of fossil collection ! ( some still in transit oversea ...)

  11. Hello to everyone! This is my first discussion on this forum. I have just started to collect dinosaur fossils and I wanted to learn from all of you. Specially to identify a real fossil from a fake one, if that is possible. I have found an interesting fossil that I would like to purchase if it is authentic, but I have several doubts. The fossil is an Iguanodon Jaw (see pictures attached) discovered in Isle of Wight, UK. The dealer says that this bone belonged to an iguanodon that would have lived approximately 120 million years ago. They also told me that the jaw has been restored from two

    Possible sauropod femur upper end

    I bought this agatized dinosaur fossil at a rock shop in Indianapolis about 4 years ago. It is agatized and it was at risk of being bought and sliced up. I am glad I rescued it. It has an identifiable shape. The attribution was only that it came from the Western United States and that it was a plant eater. It is probably from an old collection. It weighs over 90 lbs. It is wrapped up at the present time in tarp material because I moved in 2018 and I have not unwrapped it yet. I am thinking possible sauropod femur upper end. I can get more pictures and measurements when I unpack it. NON-CO

    Hell Creek Theropod Tooth- Acheroraptor?

    This is a .35" theropod tooth from the Hell Creek formation, Carter County Montana. It is a really pretty little tooth for sure and it would look great in our Acheroraptor display. I believe I see the ridges that are diagnostic to that species, especially in the first picture. I wanted to run this by the forum to be sure I am seeing what I need to see though.

    A couple of Hell Creek Vertebra

    This is being sold as a Theropod vertebra. It is from Hell Creek, Carter County Montana. It is 2.25" long x 1.5" wide x 1.25" thick. It has dimensions similar to the vertebra of Dakotaraptor so I am assuming this was from a fairly large animal (Not saying it is Dakotaraptor, just similar in size according to a paper on line). SInce we are looking for my bones for kids to interact with this may not be a bad fossil to get if it is a theropod. Any thoughts ?
  18. I recently added a Dromaeosaurid vertebra to our collection. I honestly did not bother with specs once I got it confirmed as Dromaeosaurid. I never asked size or what formation. I assumed it was from Judith River because it was sold as Dromaeosaurus. i knew it was going to be Dromaeosaurid indet so I was not worried about the specific ID. It is a raptor fossil so I wanted it. The vertebra arrived today and I got two very pleasant surprises. It is bigger than I thought. It is also not from Judith River or the species known from that formation. We got a Dromaeosaurid vertebra from th

    Ankylosaur or Nodosaur Scute ?

    One of my goals is to bring a very tactile element to our education programs. I think adding a piece of dino armor is going to be a real hit with the kids. I have been trying to brush up on ankylosaur and nodosaur scutes in preparation of getting one at some point in the near future. I am not to the level of being able to recognize them yet but I did see one in our price range. I am not sure about this one. The seller lists it as being from Hell Creek. It is 2.5"x1.5" and is 1/2 inch thick. Anybody have any thoughts about this one ?
  20. I saw this for sale and this would be perfect for our program if they are dinosaur bones. I am not well versed in bones yet and some of these look very interesting. The bone in the lower left of the picture and the larger one to the right of that both caught my eye. I do not know what they are and I did look at some pictures before I posted it but I could find much in the way of help for myself so I thought I would put it to the forum. If they are dino bones, this would be a nice addition so if you have a thought on what these might be, please share ??
  21. Hi All, I was wondering if someone could help me potentially ID what this is? The seller found the fossil on Brighstone beach, IOW but isn't sure if it is a jaw or tail or something so I thought I would post on the forum to see what everyone thinks. I have no idea what it is but I have my doubts its a jaw or a tail...
  22. Hi all, I have a pair of dino tracks. The left one is a Grallator sp. from the Connecticut River Valley. The right one is an Anomoepus scambus from Granby, Massachusetts. I've been trying to figure out their formation. I know they come from the Newark Supergroup. I would like to narrow it down. Do they come from the Portland Formation?
