  1. I just purchased these sold as Megaladon teeth. I see some repairs I think. The big one I think is in almost perfect condition. The others seem small so not sure if they are Megaladon or another shark fossil? Any help is appreciated.
  2. I rarely buy fossils and don’t know much about them but I was in a small fossil museum in a village in England called “Robin Hood’s Bay” and I saw this Spinosaurus Tooth for sale and I’m wondering if it is real. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. I am told this is an fossiles egg from dendroolitihus sp. It should be real, but who knows?
  4. Hi there! I'm new to the forum. I recently picked up a mosasaur jaw, my first fossil. Question is it real or fake, I started doing the research after making the purchase.. Comparing it to other examples, it's somewhere in the middle. It doesn't look totally manufactured, but it also kind of looks to good to be true. Opinions?
  5. Hi All, Still pretty new to the fossil ID world. I found this Hollardops online- unfortunate shortage of in-person rock shops where I am. What makes me think it's real is the repaired cracking in the matrix/cheek, the well-detailed eye facets, and general signs of mid-level prep. What has me slightly uncertain are the little knobbies on the cephalon- on real trilobites those are definitely a feature, but from these photos my eye may not be trained enough to tell natural knobs from bubbles. Any input greatly appreciated! Best, Noah
  6. Hi guys! thoughts on this amphibian?? Real? It’s a Czech fossil from the lower Permian. Any thoughts welcome and thanks nick

  10. Hey all, I stumbled upon this at an attractive price (but not so attractive that it screams reproduction) My concerns are mostly how the enamel meets the root of the tooth. I know the lighting is poor but unfortunately these are the only two photos. Appreciate any input!
  11. Hello all This fossil fish is from an old collection. I think it might be Paraelops sp. from the Santana formation in Brazil, but I'm not certain. I'm also not entirely sure if it's completely original. Anyone who has an idea what species this is, what location it comes from and most importantly, is it real? Thanks in advance
  12. I bought this megalodon tooth the other day and was wondering whether it is real or not. I added images of it from the front and the back

  15. I collected burmese amber. Surprisingly it had dinosaur feather. But I'm worried if this burmese amber is real. How to identify real amber? I heard real thing floats in salt water, after doing that, it really did. Is there any other way to identify real one?
  16. This ampyx priscus seems real, I just want to check with you guys before I purchase it.

    What's the deal with Nanotyrannus?

    What has been the outcome of the Nanotyrannus vs. juvenile T.rex debate? Is there now a definitive answer, or is it still a debated topic?
  22. Is this a real T-rex tooth? this tooth belong to someone i know. He claimed that he got a big rex tooth from USA (no more specific locality). Here are Three pictures I have. What do you guy think??
  23. First time poster to this forum, though have enjoyed reading through all the many topics. I received this 3” spino tooth as a gift and the more I read all of the other similar questions regarding real or fake, how good is it, etc., I got curious about mine. Paperwork says it’s from the Kem Kem beds, and my uneducated eye thought it seems to be in good shape, without too much restoration, but I’m curious to see what all the experts have to say. Your thoughts would be much appreciated!
