Real keichousaurus? Quality of preparation? Complete?
mr.rod posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHello all, I'm interested in these keichousaurus brothers. The seller has reserved the matrix for me, and I would love to understand some things before I buy. Better first ask to avoid bad surprises later ;-) Hope some of the experts here can support me. My questions are Is it an original/authentic fossil and not a replica? Guess it is original ;-) The quality of preparation seems to be below average? What is this untypical light-grey cloud around the right brother? Cheap prep? It looks a bit flat to me, not really 3d-look bones, is this from erosion?
Are these fossils?
MelissaL posted a topic in Fossil IDMy backyard has a large area where it's mainly rocky, meaning you can't really dig. Separating it from the "nice" grassy side of the yard is a hill. My daughter and I have found fossils there of bivalves and snails. I've attached some pictures of what I found today. But my question is regard to these tiny, circular, flat pieces that seem to cover the hill (first 3 pictures). I'm thinking they're a fossil of some kind, but I'm not sure. Can anyone help?
Possible Cretaceous Sand Dollar
Caaaleb replied to Caaaleb's topic in Fossil IDI found this Echinoid a bit over a year ago in a creek in the DFW area of North Texas. I found this in the Washita Group of the Cretaceous. I thought this was a sand dollar, but I recently learned that sand dollars did not appear until the Ice Age era. I posted a question regarding the Echinoid on the discussions section of the forum and was told it was not a Sand Dollar. Anyway, I would like to know the species and classification of this flat Echinoid if anyone may know. I've never seen any Echinoid like it.
What is sticking out of this concretion?
Lone Hunter posted a topic in Fossil IDCretaceous Eagle Ford concretion that caught my eye, one part of this disc has what looks like strange sutures but this would be one flat Ammonite if that's what it is so I'm stumped.

Iowa Mystery Bone ID
MacHoffman22 posted a topic in Fossil IDNeed help identifying what appears to be a tooth or bone of some sort. Found in the far northeastern part of Iowa (almost South Dakota) about 8 inches deep in the sandy shore of the Big Sioux River. The left and right side appear to be very slightly broken off, as well as what I would assume to be the bottom.
Biological or geological?
daves64 posted a topic in Fossil IDThis object came with the whale bone I posted about recently. I'm not sure if it's biological or geological so I figured I'd throw it into the room & see what happens. 8.5 cm long x 4.5 cm wide x 8 mm thick (roughly). Flat with a slight curve. This was the shape when found. I sanded the broken part for better internal views. Pics labeled 4, 5 & 6 are closeups. 4 being the break running from side to side, 5 being the break running lengthwise & 6 a closeup of the outside surface.
