  1. This article popped up on my news feed: https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/23/world/dinosaur-egg-fossils-extinction-scn/index.html The paper is apparently paywalled: https://www.pnas.org/doi/abs/10.1073/pnas.2211234119 It seems sensational to claim that dinosaur diversity was low based on analysis of some eggs in one location. I'd like to read the paper myself if someone has a way to access it. My first reactions: How representative are dinosaur egg fossils of dinosaur diversity? Is there taphonomic bias in this locality, which in this context speaks t
  2. hi folks, Im thinking of buying a cluster of Oviraptor from a seller who says he got these at a gem/fossil show over 10 years ago. He says he preps fossils and has extensive experience but has not finished prepping these particular eggs and won't get around to abrading them out of the matrix. I told him they are fake but he insists they are not, so I wanted to put it to the test here. thanks for your help.
  3. Any of these fossils?
  4. Things are getting pretty serious over in The Fossil Zone, so I cleared off a few books and replaced them with fossils. Who needs to read, anyway? Feel free to ask questions about particular pieces. Whole collection: The turtle skull is real, but the surrounding matrix has been stained by the preparator for better visibility. Some here might recognize the new claw that arrived broken in the mail There is a Vinctifer comptoni fish on the back right, along with a negative Grallator footprint, which I can't seem to find a good way to display. Ne
  5. 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!
  6. Hello everyone! My name is Weston and while I studied Geology at Whitman College, I never continued by degree. I am now getting a nursing degree and was stationed in Jordan, Montana for rural clinical. A contact of mine let me dig on land and I found all these fossils. Here is a link to my google drive photos. Please help me ID everything and anything you can. I am wondering if the things that look like eggs are actually eggs, as well as what the perfect sphere is. I am also wondering what dinosaur the bones most likely belonged to. I am confident there are coprolites right? I am

    A small fact.

    This little red oxide, buried subject, has officially beaten the smallest non-avian world record which is held by China. The world record holder is 1.77 inches, this subject held by a calibrated digital caliper is 1.49 inches. Two were actually found by each other. World records website says it is not currently entertaining submissions for Smallest Non-Avian Dinosaur Egg.
  8. Another curious little piece with multiple tiny scratches. Its a long shot, but could this be some type of predation? The shell is only 2 cm long though. Its the only shell piece among the bag with scratches on it like this.

    Eggs and Eggshell

    Hello, I thought I'd share my eggs and eggshell collection. Eggs are all from China. Eggshell are from different places. All of these eggs from China. I hope to add a French egg at some point, and some other types from China.
  10. In this post I am going to show you a couple examples of fish related fossils that are found at Mazon Creek. Many of these are my finds and many are from my fossil mentor. The pics are zoomed up, I apologize for that, but I mounted my fossils (pairs) on white cardboard, so I do not want to pull them off and have to reattach them. First up is a lamprey - Mayomyzon pieckoensis. This lamprey was collected at Pit 11. Next up are a 3 examples of the Jawless fish- Gilpichthys greenei . These fish were found at Pit 11.

    Not sure what this is.

    Not sure what this is. I found it in the Texas hill country Blanco river. Its approximately 1 1/8 round. Can anybody help identify. Thank you.
  12. Before I go further with getting extra photos and details and measurements of it--- a quick question, but are eggs like this, supposedly with small embryonic bone pieces actually available quite widely? I am surprised to have been offered it--like I thought these were like gold dust. But are they a thing and do they come up for sale rather than being museum pieces/studied? Is it worth me inquiring further about it and getting extra photos--or are eggs with embryonic/baby remains so rare that this isn't worth looking more into as it likely isn't actually baby/embrionic
  13. Just interested in the opinions of these Oviraptor Eggs I saw in a gallery They say they are from Nanxiong China, with minimal restoration. They look real to me especially with all the detailing on the shells and they are very heavy. The gallery seems to be reputable but I wanted to see what people on here thought.

    What kind of Dinosaur Eggs??

    While prospecting for gold in Placerville, California on Weber Creek in a deep hole I found two eggs a dino bone fragment, which I sold to a local store and a seed grinding tool. The store owner also sold dino poop that he found in the area. Once I presented the eggs to him he pulls out a spray bottle of water lightly misted the eggs and said they were tacky. He said thats a sign of calcium. He still didnt know what species they were. The eggs easily fit in my hand. Is there anyone who can help with the possible I'd of these eggs? Thank you for your time.

    Egg or congregates

    So I found these in Lethbridge Alberta on the Old Man River in the Bear paw formation about 20 feet down from surface in some exposed shale formations. And we would like to figure out what it is?? The first one weighs about 2.3 pounds and length is 15.5 cm and 6.5 wide. The second is smaller at 0.6 pounds and length is 14.8 cm and 6.4 wide. We have found ammonite and baculite in the same area.
  16. Got a guy from Tiawan who has these oviraptor eggs from Jiangxi. He tells me he can legally export them. They look good to me but would like some input from you pros. Thanks so much RB

  18. Hi there, I'm looking at possibly buying another saurpod egg. The seller identified it as a hypselosaurus priscus egg, Provence basin france. From the last post I did not on eggs I understand eggs are specifically attributed to hypselosaurus anymore? I'm looking for a museum quality piece as my other egg examples are just decent. Please give me your thoughts and let me know if you require more photos Thank you!
  19. I’ve been working on a display centred around dinosaur eggs and fossils of young dinosaurs. I’ve so far gained quite a bit and have some more fossils on the way for the display. I will work on getting photos of the individuals pieces for now I’ll leave everyone off with the whole display currently. I will update this as time goes on.

    Found these in the woods in st. Clair County Alabama. they were in a coal deposit I dug up. very small deposit. filled a five gallon bucket with coal. they vary in size. I hope they are eggs. some have fragments of shell on them and some do not. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Snake head? or rock?

    My sister found this and it is shape of snake, but the dots?? Just not sure what it actually might be. It was found in Poplar Bluff Mo. They were digging in the back yard.

    Mystery fossil

    Came across this weird item on our favorite site labeled as an egg. I’m thinking it could be a concretion, but there one part near the bottom that looks to have a piece of “shell” with texture. In the other broken open one there’s a close up that looks like whiteish ribs or possible feather? Can someone please help?
  23. Birdlike behavior in oviraptoroid dinosaur brooding on nest full of embryos. Found in China. https://www.globaltimes.cn/index.html
  24. A long time ago, I came across a picture claiming to be an eggshell from an egg with evidence of hatchling behavior. It looked fairly legitimate - it does really look like the behavior of a small creature pecking out of the shell since the crack is focused on such a small point. My question is, is it possible to tell on smaller or larger eggshell fragments? Take smaller fragments that have cracks running across them like this one: or large entire portions of the egg like this one: What would likely indicate a shell fragment was pulverized by the
