  1. Here is a ready-to-display psittacosaurus on a custom built armature that I am willing to trade for something special. All bones displayed are real bone, no repros to fill in gaps. Total length just over 36 inches. All bones are attached to the armature reversibly (museum wax, wire, string). The base is black walnut. The framework is welded steel. IT is sitting on a placemat for size reference. I have a second psittacosaurus that is not mounted, the bones are redder in color, and it was previously mounted with many glued joints. That one is almost four feet long and n
  2. Hi! So, this is from a seller I've bought from before. Spino teeth, cropolite, some eggshell, nothing too weird. When I saw this foot, I found it really cool. It's supposed to be from a psittacosaurus. I'm supposed to pick it up later. So I'm reading up on this dinosaur, only to hear they are being faked a lot... I'd love to hear your thoughts!
  3. Hello I'm interested in a Psittacosaurus skeleton I found online. I know these almost always consist of bones from different animals, I don't really mind that. The main thing I want to know if there's any visible restorations or stuff that looks off? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I would like to share my collection of Psittacosaurus today. According to my knowledge, it's impossible to buy anymore. So, ever I know the seller/ orginal seller switched the surrounding rock and someone used another dinosaur's claw to replace the missing part. I still bought it. And I think that is so exciting to own a whole dinosaur at home. I also found a expert to make me a tailor-made box and renew the periphery from yellow to black. I hope that will it more noble. Enjoy!
  5. Hello TFF, Former lurker here, now fresh newbie. I've stumbled across a Psittacosaurus skeleton that seems too good to be true and I'd like to ask for your opinion(s). It looks real to me. No clear origin, sold from Taiwan, length 1.2 meters, weight 3.5kg (mistake, red flag or nothing?). I've asked for additional details (that I will or won't get), but meanwhile I can't decide if it's real and I'm paranoid or ... not So, what do you make of this specimen? Anything suspicious or noteworthy about it? Any input would help, thank you!
  6. Hi everyone! I would like to know your opinions on the following Psittacosaurus mongoliensis specimen. Found in Liaoning, China. Size about 20cm long and ~1kg heavy. I see there's quite a lot of glue/consolidant here. I know some are carved and many are composites but I would like to know your opinions. Is this real or fake? Your input is highly appreciated. Cheers!
  7. Third topic I've posted in two days, lol. Found some cheap Taco fossils, listed separately but may or may not be associated. First one is metatarsals: Second is a femur: Third is a tibia: The seller says that these are "reconstructed from matrix". What I assume that that's supposed to mean is that these were broken bones that were removed from the matrix and then reassembled. Or that's what I hope, at least. I also found what appears to be a complete Taco foot.
  8. Hi everyone, Im new to this forum but have stumbled across it while trying to find information about psittacosaurus, I have a quite large complete (I think) specimen, over 3.5 feet long. The bones are prepared but not mounted. Does anyone know of anyone in England that can prepare these to being mounted? Looking forward to speaking with fellow collectors out there kind regards
  9. This Psittacosaurus skull comes from a seller, who claims that it has "5% restoration". Are there any red flags here?
  10. Seller claims that this is a Psittacosaurus mongoliensis foot fossil with no restoration. What do you think?
  11. Hi everyone, I'm looking for Keichosaurus fossils, and I know there's a lot of fakes, that's why I suspect. Thank you in advance!
  12. I have found this psittacosaurus skeleton for sale and was wondering if it's authentic the skull looks a bit funky but not sure about the rest
  13. Psittacosaurus fossils are really hard to find on the web currently so am looking to trade my fossils for a psittacosaurus skull of a psittacosaurus here's the fossils I am trading The oreodont skull and the spinosaurus also come with a certificate This is a oreodont skull from South Dakota it has a little restoration A nice 4.7 inch spinosaurus tooth ...and this is a ceratopsian Epoccipital from Powder River, Montana
  14. This is a brood of psittacosaurus. It measures about 45cm in length for the matrix. It is from Liaoning Province of China. Do you think it is genuine?
  15. Hello. I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the authenticity of this Psittacosaurus skull. The seller didn't provide measurements and stated the skull came "from Asia." I suspect this is a fabrication, but I would like to hear others' opinions. Thank you for your help.
  16. Hi Members, I'll start off by saying that I'm a complete newbie in the fossil/dinosaur world, so please forgive me for using incorrect terminology. I have just come to acquire a complete Psittacosaurus mounted skeleton (see photos), that is mostly intact on the mount. The previous owner had a box of manus parts (phalanges, etc.). She also had an old tube of adhesive in that box (B-7000 in the "parts" photo). I would like to "restore" the structure via glueing the loose parts back onto the skeletal structure. I am looking for advice on which adhesive to use, e.g. should I use the B-7000

  18. Hello. I was wondering about the authenticity of this set of vertebrae. I suspect that it has had considerable repair and restoration. Particularly, the orange areas and some of the cracked sections seem off. I'm also suspicious of the fact that the vertebrae are all connected. Thanks for any help identifying the authenticity. Note: I'm aware of the laws regarding fossils from China and Mongolia. I am not looking to add this piece to my collection. I'm just curious if it is real or not.

    Psittacosaurus vertebrae?

    Is it possible that these are Psittacosaurus vertebrae? The seller gives poor locality with only saying it’s from Mongolia and they are around 1.5 cm for the largest one. Thank you! @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  20. Hi everyone, I am currently thinking about buying this Psittacosaurus femur, as it would be a nice and a bit of a rarer addition to my dinosaur collection. The piece is said to have been found in the Yixian Formation, Liaoning Province, China and it measures 14,5 cm And while it looks like a genuine and okay bone to me (with perhaps some composite elements like the little protruding part which is typical of Psittacosaurs) I am not really an expert on Chinese dinosaur fossils. The bone looks like the femur on the replica skeleton I own, but I am not 100 % sur
  21. Hi everyone! i found this psittacosaurus skeleton on an auction site. At first glance I noticed that something as off. It’s supposed to be from an old collection and the juvenile specimen is about 50 cm in length. These are my issues with it (would be great to hear your opinions about this). 1. The spine, neck and tail doesn’t look at all like vertebrae. 2. In the skull there’s some black mineral left in the eye socket and in the mouth. But it doesn’t match any mineral I’ve seen around these specimen before. 3. The mounting and position is just very
  22. Hi, Does anyone know a reputable fossil dealer to obtain a complete skeleton? Preferably a Psittacosaurus for delivery to the UK? Thanks!
  23. I saw this Psittacosaurus fossil on the Internet fossil owner says this fossil buy from Liaoning Something seems really odd about it is this fossil real? I would truly appreciate any response to my question
  24. Hello! I see this psittacosaurus skull on internet. It seems real? Is small the sizes are 6.5 5,3 4,1 cm Thank you so much.
