  1. I see a vertical pupil raptor eye and embryo in the egg shaped, smooth rock. I was looking for geodes, I found this tiny geode, broke it open at home, and the other half broke into pieces - 3 or 4 crumbly. I did this 17 years ago. Now, I have joined a lapidary group, ALMS Alabama, and been to a meeting, and I have had this on my shelf for 17 years. I was thinking it is an ugly geode nodule? But then, yesterday I thought, it looks like an egg, it's insides are multicolored like a fossilized egg? I then go my magnifying glass and I can see an eye, and 3 part skull with divisions line
  2. Here some photos of my new model : Anurognathus ammoni This tiny pterosaur sometimes called "frog face" was about 35 cm wingspan . I was highly inspired from Qilong artwork for the skull. :p Enjoy !
  3. Hello all, looking to get some opinions. 5-6 years ago I came across a ton of fragmented bones while scouting out a new collecting site. One of the first things that really caught my eye was this, lets call it a "claw". Like I said this was among a ton of shattered bone so it kind of stood out right away. I followed the bone fragments more up a very steep hill that turns into a cliff. This led me probably 50-75 feet from the initial sighting of bone to a place that was dangerously steep, but I could see more bone weathering out of the hill. It was in very bad shape

    Reptile Fossil ID Please

    Dear members: I wish I could say that I found this myself but I actually purchased it from an estate sale. There was no identification paperwork that came along with it but my own research online leads me to believe that it may be a Keichousaurus. I’ve examined the matrix carefully with magnification and I see enough continuation of strata from the surface down the sides and I even scraped away some matrix next to ribs to determine that this was not a fake or reproduction. So any help in confirming the identification would be appreciated. It seems to me that this is a pretty nice
  5. I'm not sure if I've come to the right place but I found this during a walk today and I am unsure of what it could be. Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Neogene ungulates

    Hello again. I have been tinkering with 3d scans again. Using a camel skull and llama body from the idaho virtualization lab via sketchfab, Itried to recreate Syndyoceras, a protoceratid. I am quite happy with the skull and do actually have not much of an idea about the postcranial skeleton. At the moment its a flattened llama minus some neck. I think the feet should be four-toed, but I didn´t find good references for the size and shape. What do you think? Any suggestions to make it more accurate? I added tags for some other herbivore mammals I plan to build over tim

    Some paint added

    Aloha. here are two 3d printed models I showed before. The Turtle is selfmade, the Spino not so. I took the time to paint them and quite like the result. Pondered to give the Spino the reddish colour one often sees with fossils from kem kem, but decided rather to colour the "matrix", which is in fact a piece of treebark. Best regards, Jan
  8. My first post on the forum was to see if anybody could show me an adult specimen of “Nanotyrannus.” I was more forceful in that approach because, from what I’ve seen on Twitter, “Nano” fans like to argue with paleontologists on the validity of the genus, even though these scientists have been studying dinosaurs for years and have degrees and Ph.Ds in different scientific fields. The evidence points them in a different conclusion compared to the public, and the fact that they are being so heavily resisted against with regards to this topic is baffling. I decided to play the “Nano” fans at their
  9. 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
  10. Hello everyone, I have just discovered this Forum, and I have to say it looks amazing! I feel like I've come to the right place, it has everything regarding Fossils and knowledge of people. I hope to find some additional Fossils here for my collection I have just a few questions: Is it actually legal to dig up Dinosaur Fossils? Im just wondering as an example, if you dig up a Triceratops in Canada, or a Tyrannosaur Rex in the States (what would be awesome) is this allowed to search/dig for them? Can you just visit a digging site and start on your own, how does it work?
  11. Hi guys, I recently purchased this piece from an auction house here in Ireland, apologies as this is a replica display piece and not a real fossil, so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct discussion! I'm fairly certain that it is not anatomically correct at all, but if anyone has any information as to what species this replica represents that would be much appreciated! It is labelled as originating from the Devon Zoology Centre and has the dimensions: 92cm H x 155cm W x 55cm D.

    Cave Snake

    I just thought I would share a few pictures of this amazing snake I was able to acquire from a good friend who is letting go of a few pieces of his collection. He is getting up in age and I was honored enough to be the recipient of a few incredible pieces. This snake was found in 1988 in a cave on private property in Oregon. It is Pleistocene in age and is believed to be a species of racer (colubridae). Enjoy Seth
  13. Ahoi. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Tried it anyway. Because of the size in my chosen scale of 1/20 I decided to model it on Platecarpus, although I don´t claim to be accurate to even genus level. It´s just the medium s

    Some marine non-whales

    Three models, three very different animals, three methods: Anomalocaris, sculpted in fimo according to fossil drawings, 6 cm long Hesperornis, digitally distorted from a recent bird skeleton and Tyrannosaurus skull, 3d printed, 9cm long. Hydrodamalis, skull digitally distorted from a dog skull, postcranial plywood and putty like my whales, 38 cm. Aloha J

    Mysterious bone

    I was walking on a countryside path in York (UK) and a strange rock on a plowed land captured my attention. It has a strange shape that looks to me as a fragment of bone close to its epiphysis which seems broken. The cross section is composed of three layers, the central one brownish-red, the middle one white (both very solid) and the most external one is like rock but a bit porous to touch. Do you think it can be a fossil bone? If yes, what could it be? First image as size reference.

    Dinosaur Postures

    After the satisfying outcome of my sloth-experiment (changing geoworld megatherium to Thalassocnus) I took another look at some older dinosaur models. Sauropoda- Giraffatitan: "Edutoys Brachiosaurus", added teeth and one cervical vertebra to give him a more erect pose, Changed cervical ribs from medial "monorib". changed leg pose. Thyreophora- Stegosaurus: Glencoe models , changed tail and thagomizer to more modern pose Ceratopsia- Triceratops: Kaiyodo "Wild rush" gave him a treetrunk to look over. Ornithopoda- Parasaurolophus: Geoworld, drilled out intercostal plast

    Kem kem

    I have a couple questions about the long bone on the far left and the smaller on the far right there labeled as raptor Leg bones from the kem kem beds any idea what dinosaur these could possibly be from and what location on the animal. They came from the same animal.
  20. 2 days ago I was digging for ammonites in a road cut in central oregon, and happened across some very large bones. I will be returning to the site with a team of NARG members and affiliates to excavate it in a few weeks. Super exciting find, there are at least 6 bones exposed, probably many more yet to be found. The ribs are 3 inches thick, so probably at least a 20 foot animal. This is by far the coolest thing I've ever found.

  22. Hi everyone, Can you help me identify what animal this may be? It was found in Botswana. It is a semi-arid climate. Any idea if it's carnivorous or not? Any clues are helpful! Thanks.

    Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  24. May I seek your view on the authenticity of the Psittachosaurus skeleton? It is from Beipiao of Liaoning.
