  1. Hi, Does anyone know what these eggs are from? I haven't seen any like these. They are very small--2 inches. From XiXia, Nanyang City,Henan Province. Unfortunately, the condition is poor--with shell missing from one side. But they are quite unique and unusual. They are the first ones like this I have seen for sale. They seem too small to be Dendroolithus. They also appear to be too big for turtle. Edit: Also smaller than Spheroolithus eggs. An offshoot of Dendroolithus/spheroolithus, perhaps--a smaller species that which usually lays those types of eggs. I h
  2. Hello I'm new to the fossil forum and hopefully I provide enough information. I found this fossil egg looking Rock in poweshiek County Iowa. One of my close friends owns a farm and we have been finding several possible fossils in the creek and near the surface on the hillside. The farm is 26 acres and located on Glacier land which is very Sandy with steep hills down to the creek which starts about two miles away from me natural spring and never dries up. This one was found about two feet below the water, sand and mud. It appears as if the little rascal was hatching, that is if it's an egg. Tha

    Fossil egg?

    When I saw it I decided to scrap dirt from it sides so that it could be visible more clearly. I know it may be too small for an egg but it may be egg of a small snake or lizard?

    Egg or not?

    Hi!! Found this close to Bishop, CA

    Halp! Wut IS it?!

    Greetings all! I found this in Southwestern PA in my backyard lying on the sun-scorched grass. Perhaps someone threw it at me, I thought. Should I throw it back? It measures about 7.5 cm long by 4.5 wide and is 3.25 thick.

    Fossil egg?

    Hope someone can give me some info. I'm a newbie, but lifelong fossil lover. Thank you in advance.
  8. Afternoon all. Found this little stone amongst the gravel on the driveway. We've found many fossils in the gravel including Belemnites, shells etc. But we've never seen anything like this. The surface is fairly smooth but you can feel slight 'pitting'. The inner material is coarse and hard, with a similarity to sandstone. The object is about 3cm in all directions, and almost spherical. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. If you think you have found an egg fossil, chances are that it isn't actually an egg fossil. 98% of most found "eggs" posted here are not actual egg fossils. It could be a concretion or nodule. However, if you really want to learn about fossil eggs, here are a few links to get you started. Our resident Egg Studying Paleontologist, CBChiefski, has been kind enough to produce some in depth guides on egg identification. Think you found an egg? Read this first!

  10. Does any one know how to prep dino eggs? I feel I could make this look better. I was thinking vinegar or a soda blast?
  11. Hi, just wondered from the photos if this eggs looks real or not? would love to own a real dinosaur egg but don’t want to waste my money buying a fake one . Noticed you can see on one of the photos two small pin hole sized holes next to each other? thanks
  12. Hello, I found these "fossil turtle eggs" up for sale on an auction site. The seller claims these "authentic" turtle eggs were found in Bulgaria. I highly doubt these are even eggs, they may just be concretions. Just to be sure, I'm asking whether these are real or not.
  13. Hello all, Hoping I've found a fossilized egg and looking forward to any comments others might have. The "shell" appears intact on one side of the object and is missing from the other side. There appears to be a distinct "shell" layer. Any comments would be appreciated. Object is 80 mm by 68mm at the widest point. The object was found in an eroding hillside in the Cotter/Jefferson City formation in North Central Arkansas (Ozarks). This places this area in the early Ordovician geologic period. Thanks for any comments! Allan

    Yellow (canary) round ball fossil?

    Hi guys, just wondering what can it be. This round ball is 0.6in (15.5mm) in diameter, weight is around 15gr. Very solid looking ball with yellow (canary) inner part and white shell looking outer part. Can you please help me to identify what can it possibly be. Cheers.
  15. Hi all, On one of our regular outings we stumbled upon an old shop in Chinatown with the following egg fossils on display. The owner supposedly brought many of such fossils out of China many decades ago and they are now part of his prized collection. The first two photos are of a nest of small oval-shaped eggs around 3 inches in length. The third photo is of a single egg similar to that in the nest, also measuring 3 inches length. Lastly is a different kind of spherical egg about 4 inches in diameter. All eggs are on the typical red-mudstone that most Chinese dinosaur eggs are found on, lea

    Dinosaur Egg?

    Today I found a bunch of these rock looking things, are they egg shells of some sort or just rock? Found in lowood, Queensland, Australia.
  17. Guys, sorry I didn't get anything in the pics to show size. this is about 2.5" x 2" at the most. Anyhow, looks like an egg to me, it is made out of rock. Found near Chattanooga. The red looking stuff on it is clay.
