    It's an egg

  2. Hello, I apologize in advance as I'm sure questions like this come up a lot. I'm thinking about purchasing this dinosaur egg which I believe is from a fairly reputable seller. I've always wanted a real dinosaur egg for my collection, but I just wanted to get some opinions on whether you think this one is real or a fake? Thank you very much for any assistance!
  3. I found this rock and smashed it open while taking a walk at Lake Ontario. What I found inside seems rather interest. It is sort of egg shaped but what got my attention is 3 near parallel lines in the possible pattern of a bird or reptile foot, maybe too. Possibly branching lines like blood vessels or roots? It's not very big, maybe a couple inches in length at most and a good part of it is still embedded in the rock. I don't know if there may be more embedded in the rock. I couldn't identify the other fragments that came off the rock after I broke it open unfortunately. I'd love to hea
  4. Found this interesting rock and it has me scratching my head but it sure looks like some sort of egg or maybe the pit of a large fruit but then again it could be a concretion but I have my doubts about that. Hope these pictures have the clarity needed for good judgement.

    Dinosaur Egg

    We found a few dinosaur eggs located in Utah. Not quite sure on exactly what they were laid by or even if they are fossilized eggs.

    Dinosaur Egg

    How about now?

    Egg Fossil

    I’m looking to get some info on this. Which I found in central Ohio.
  8. Hi, Newbie here. Wondering if these items are real. The pair are billed as oviraptor eggs. The other is billed as a hadrosaur egg. Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts! Best, Z!

    Help with possible egg

    Found this in the Olcmulgee River shed after lots of rain from up North so I'm in Middle Georgia it's possible it could have come down from further north. Background in last picture is a standard index card for true size comparison

    oviraptor egg prep?

    Hello fossil friends I will be acquiring a clutch described as Elongatoolithidae that came from a collection out of China in the 80s. Short of sending the piece out or acquiring a $1000+ air scribe setup, what can be done as far as getting rid of some of the calcite on top of the eggshell, or better expose the underlying details? I possess a dremel with many different attachments and access to the hardware store for more supplies. I've read that the matrix these are found in can be very hydrophilic so want to avoid turning it to mush. Thanks for any comments
  11. Please take a look of the two eggs with well developed embryos from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. I was told that the embryos were revealed only because the eggs were broken with bones exposed. These are amazing fossils if they are genuine. Do they look like genuine bones or fabricated ones?
  12. An incomplete skeleton was found alongside with a raptor egg. Does it look like the skeleton is genuine? Would it be the skeleton of an elder hatchling of the same brood? This specimen is from Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, China.

    Tiny embryo

    Hi any suggestions on this one.
  14. The eggs were from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. How come the two different types of eggs, two spheroidal and an elongated eggs, are sticking together? Are they genuine eggs or eggs glued together artificially?
  15. We took the family out for a day trip to Big Brook today and among many sharks teeth and squid pens, we found this interesting thing. My first thought was corprolite but it has cracks and structure? Idk any help would be great!

    Head crest.

    Retained some fossilized mold feeding on the living matter. This subject was recovered the way it looks, the fossilized mold is sufficient provenance for that. The only likely plausibility? Oviraptor. The oviraptor tucked it's head between its knees unlike other dinosaurs which would show the upright head in the middle of the egg like this.
  17. Wattle hanging down the neck in front of the subjects chest. An extended wing. Translucent egg. A rare sight of a bird inside a fully preserved egg.

    Exciting Finds!

    I found these dinosaur fossils near where I live. One is dinosaur skin and one is a footprint of a long-necked dinosaur. I already know this, but maybe someone could tell me how much they are worth? Sorry for the closeups - I'll try to go back later and get wider shots.

    Fossil ID

    Hello, Found on the Meramec River in Roberstville, MO Any help with ID is appreciated. Thanks
  20. A seller near me has a fossil egg. A hadrosaur egg of some sort. I think the seller is genuine, and I am fairly well committed to buying the egg at this stage, but want to confirm things before it all gets the final go ahead. I've looked at the various egg buying guides here, and though this doesn't look quite like the example eggs given it also doesn't look like any of the fake eggs. Can people please let me know if they think this is a genuine egg? Thanks for the help!

    Kansas fossil... What is it?

    Can someone give me an opinion on what this might be? Southeast Kansas found yesterday...
  22. Is this real? Seller told me it seems to be authentic and got it from a private dealer over in Israel. The seller seems to be honest about it, and it does look interested. Measures right a 4 inches and weighs just a little under 3 lbs. To me it looks to be authentic, but don't know since there are really good looking fake ones around too. Ideas? And coming from Israel, it could be the real deal, but don't know for sure how honest or not some people can be...
  23. A seller on online has this up for sale. Does this look legit? or more just like a rock that looks like a fossil? It measures 4 inches and weighs just under 2 lbs.
  24. I recently purchased this item from a seller who sold it to me as being a real Dinosaur Egg Fossil. It was found several years back in the State of Tennessee in the Real Foot Lake area. Construction workers were digging into a hillside/mound and uncovered this and several others like it while moving the dirt around. It is oval/egg shaped, and measures approx. 2.5 long by right at 2 inches wide. It weighs 5.9 ounces but feels heavier somewhat than that. I have no idea as to if this is a real fossil ? or just a rock that looks like an Egg Fossil. I've taken several pictures at different angles t
  25. Hi guys not been on much due to limited internet sorry however I had ordered a 'geode' from a seller in China cheapish it is around 1.9kg in weight and it arrived. It looked like something I had seen before and sure enough I found similar listed as a dinosaur egg on the famous auction site, just wondered everyone's thoughts on what it actually is lol? couple of pics attached, im sure it is neither an egg or a geode personally
