Possible dinosaur egg?
Sergiorex posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHi, I saw this listing for a supposed real dinosaur egg, and wasn’t sure if it’s real or what species it may be from. It looks real to me but I’m not sure it’s a dinosaur egg. Unfortunately the seller doesn’t have a locality as they said it was passed down to them. Anyways i would appreciate any help with detecting whether it’s real or identifying what it’s from if it is real. Thanks in advance
Big Brook Monmouth County New Jersey Fossil Identification
phillies2740 posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, and thank you for your help and interest. I have collected from Big Brook in the past, but this time I was finding items of similar composition in the same general area of the stream bed.

I have been tricked before, and could be getting tricked again, because after a while I trick myself into thinking everything is a fossil. After reading "When Dinosaurs Roamed New Jersey," I went back to Monmouth County with a renewed excitement. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated if any of the

DD1991 posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionWe all know that Magnapaulia was the biggest lambeosaurine hadrosaur that ever lived, but did you know that Kritosaurus means "broken lizard" due to the original specimen being found with broken nasal bones? Did you also know that the name Charonosaurus highlights the fact that it was found near a river by paying homage to the role of Charon in ferrying souls to the underworld along the Styx River? Also note that the name Hypacrosaurus means "under the top lizard" because Barnum Brown considered Hypacrosaurus to be almost the size of T. rex.

Hadrosaur Egg / Nest Display / Diorama
Arch2000 posted a topic in Fossil PreparationI recently purchased 2 Hadrosaur eggs, they were once joined but the matrix joining them has split (they can still be positioned as they were together, just with a visible crack where the split is). As they are heavy, fragile, and already split I want to display them and keep them safe, here's what I'm thinking: I have a plexiglas tray (thick) that they fit in nicely. I want to create a ground-cover like base that they can sit in, which will have some indentations to keep them from moving, and wanted to make this look like sand or riverbank mud as they would be found in their original natur
AnthroWendy posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI recently had a friend buy an "oviraptor egg" at auction. I've never handled fossilized eggs myself but had the feeling this may not be the real deal and was hoping for some input. They were told the egg was Mongolian and had paperwork to accompany it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
