  1. Hi all, Well here it is. Oviraptor egg from a 30 year old collection located in the United States. Bought first and read posts on here about fakes later. Smart right? I'll attach pictures but my concerns are 1. It isn't pancaked like most ones I see, 2. Texture changes on the surface could be matrix repairs, 3. On broken areas shell thickness is not consistent. I'll add the best pictures I can. Almost looks like it was painted in the last picture. Thoughts on this would be appreciated. Good or bad lol.
  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. 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!

    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
  5. Hey guys, I came across this “oviraptor egg” and was tempted to buy it. However, it is being sold very cheap and is from China, where a lot of faux fossils are made. Would anyone know whether this is real? Thanks
  6. 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.

    Oviraptor finger fossil?

    Hi Is the id on this as been fossilised Oviraptor finger/digits accurate? Ignore the text "claw" its mistranslation from the collector--supplier clarified it as been finger bones. It is 6cm long. Ganzhou, Nanxiong Formation. Unfortunately, seller is away for a few days, so I may struggle to get more info. This photo was in the recent batcg he sent. I know it may be difficult to get an id with this. It seems small at 6 cm for Ovi too, im wondering if juvie, or a smaller species.

    A fat egg - GangZhou

    Hello, Does anyone know what this egg is from? It looks fatter and less elongated than the oviraptor eggs, but isn't as round as Hadrosaur eggs. Quite unusual. The shell looks different too, not as speckled as the oviraptor eggs. It's from GangZhou, Nanxiong Formation.
  9. I recently got offered a nest of 3 oviraptor eggs in what I think is great condition. I trust the source I’m getting it from but I wanted to run it by you guys to double check that they’re authentic. let me know what you think!

    Oviraptor eggs

    The Oviraptor eggs I previously posted about finally got here! These were pretty expensive so I just wanted to see what you guys think about them and double check they’re authentic now that I have some better photos. I also included a few close up pictures I took. If you need any other pics or info let me know Weight: 9 lb 6.5 oz (426 g)
  11. I purchased these as Ingenia yanshini which I think became Ajancingenia, which then became and is currently Heyuannia. The formation provided is the Djadochta Formation, but that doesn't seem right since Ingenia/Heyuannia is not found there as far as I've checked. Unfortunately, there isn't provenance other than Mongolia attached to them to say whether they come from the Barun Goyot Formation where Heyuannia yanshini is found. While I'm not necessarily doubting the original ID, I just don't really know. I'm not expecting a positive or diagnostic ID to the genus level, but I wanted
  12. Hello, What are people's thoughts on these? Three eggs and one partial, plus some bits of shell. Given its poor condition, it looks ok to my eyes, but others know better than me. It's a shame there's not more eggshell coverage--but nests of oviraptors are always out of my price range, so this will be a more budget way for me to get a nest. Also, would these 3 eggs from a different nest that fossilised together? Because most nest fossils I see they are arranged in a sort of circular shape, rather than a big blob, Or is it just that in fossilisation they've been bundled a
  13. Hello, A second egg Im interested in-- an, at first glance, much better one. It's Oviraptor, from Ganzhou, Jiangxi, China. Edit - size - 17.5cm It looks to have really good shell coverage, but am a little concerned at the cracks, whether some of it might be shells from other eggs glued in place. I'd love to hear others thoughts on it.
  14. Hello everyone, I was hoping to get some opinions on an egg that I was thinking of purchasing. The description has it as either an oviraptor or a tarbosaurus. It seems to be in to good of shape making me question it. The dimensions are 33cm x 11cm x 10cm with weight of about 10 pounds. They are saying it is from the Djadokhta Formation of Mongolia and was from a private collection. There are some red flags from the description but thought I would ask for some opinions.
  15. Hello does this egg look real . Looks like its missing some shell and looks not to be prepped. Possibly an oviraptor egg? Is 18 cm long Thanks
  16. Good night All, please try to check attached egg photos. There are 2 hadrosaur eggs and one oviraptor egg. Do you thing all this material is fake. Some person is trying to sell it to me. Do you thing all this have red flags? Best regards. Alvaro.
  17. Hello everyone, I am just curious if this Elongatoolithid is genuine. The owner states on his/her account that it would come with a certificate of authenticity and has had it for over a decade. It looks surprisingly real, though I am cautious as I have heard of how many fake Oviraptor/Citipati eggs there are.
  18. Dear fossilfans, Could anyone have a look at this Oviraptor egg from China? Is it 100% real, and how much should I pay at maximum? Thank you for helping me out

    Poor, poor Oviraptor

    Anyone here remember in their childhood being taught that Oviraptor (egg-thief) stole dinosaurs' eggs, and ate them? Same here. As most of you will know, it turns out, this dino was no criminal, it was just trying to be a good parent, brooding over it's eggs! Here's the fossil that led to it's misidentification: You can see how it was speculated to have been stealing the eggs, but, based on other specimen covering their own nests, and CT scans that showed an embryonic Oviraptor inside the eggs... It was being a good momma, protecting it's young from the sandstorm that buried both it an
  20. First up, the seller of this egg stated upfront this is a replica, so this isn't a scam warning. Here, we have an oviraptor egg that could fool even experienced collectors. It looks realistic because it's made out of real oviraptor eggshells. It's even covered with a coating of matrix. This is common practice; I've seen hadrosaur eggs are faked this way, with plaster mixed in to make the egg seem round and heavy. For reference, here's a real Oviraptor (Elongatoolithus sp.) that's been professionally prepped. Oviraptor eggs are commonly faked, so four ways t
  21. Oviraptor (elongatoolithid) eggs from Henan, China (an old collection). 65-72 mya. Eggs are 5.75 and 3.75 inches long, 1 and a half eggs. Have been prepared and stabilized. Thoughts on the veracity?
  22. Hello, I am new on forum, my name is Gregory. I have a few mammal fossils on my collection and was looking at dino eggs (I know nothing about them). I visited a few of your topics talking about them. I saw one on online and was wondering if this is a real one or a faked one. size : 16 cm X 7 cm.
  23. Hi i came across this Egg label as oviraptor egg from China look quite real to me( but not quite sure tho) what do you think about this? thank in advance!
  24. My 3D print of a full size Citipati oviraptor skull. 3d files came from: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/life-size-citipati-oviraptor-skull-and-cervical-vertebrae. I had no idea how to paint when I started this. A lot of Google searching on how to paint and experimentation. Also printed Life size baby T-rex skeleton, which is about 7' long. I started 3d printing about a year ago when my wife and kids bought me an Ender 3 Pro for Christmas. Pretty soon I will have my own dinosaur museum in the house.
  25. At first glance it looks real to me--mainly because it's not in the best condition. I figure if someone was gonna fake it, they'd do more than partially cover the egg 17.9cm x 7.8cm x 7.6 cm Described as an Elongatoolithidae egg. Thanks. I know it's not the best, but it's affordable enough so I don't have to dip into the budget I've set aside to get some verts and teeth.
