  1. Without being able to get hands on with a light or up close inspection - does anyone see any red flags here? Seems legit to me - but it’s a potential big purchase so I wanted to hear some thoughts. Always dreamed of picking up a saber skull one day. ~35cm in length. thanks so much for any input
  2. Hi guys, Brand new to the forum, but excited to be here. I found this in an area where water used to be very high all around me. In fact in a great deal of Thornton Co. In this case I am around the Niver trail. I am not so much the expert in geological terms so I will forego the effort in outlining this, but I will say the rocks around are very interesting. A lot of petrified wood, some form of molten rocks and evidence of extreme heat, has made for some interesting mineralization many of my finds. I look forward to your advice and have much more to show and hopefully lear

    What about this one?

    Found this in my back yard under a pile of rocks. I see scales, a skull with 2 horns, a mouth, the fossilized brain stem, and even a hole where the spinal chord would be.
  4. Hello, in your opinion, is this Machairodus skull real? He sells a lot of fossil mammal skulls and I find that a little weird. Thank you
  5. Hi, all. I'm looking to make my first decent fossil purchase. Until now, it's been nothing but rough trilobites and a large ammonite of questionable authenticity. It was cheap and I like how it looks so I'm not concerned. If it is real, they clearly overdid it on cleaning it up. Anyway, I found this oreodont skull online. Any thoughts on authenticity? My gut says real but with lots of restoration. In the first pic, the area below left from the eye socket looks way too smooth. Same with the area below the other eye socket. I figured this part was all fabricated. Also,

    T.rex skull?

    Greetings, I have now received some pieces of bone, it should be pieces of bone from the Tyrannosaurus' head ... it should be one individual ... if anyone can confirm or refute it, or even know which part of the skull it is. ..I would be very grateful ... for some pieces, I already have an idea where they fit ... I photographed every piece of bone 5 times ... you can see a part of the surface of the bones at each one .. I just don't know if I'm wrong, so I'd rather ask here, the more erudite ones ... thank you for your time
  7. 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.
  8. This looks to have some small spots of fill, but do any of you see something more? Also hard to tell if the horn was put into the left eye socket to make it look like a fascinating death fossil versus really found like that. thanks

    Fossil skull?

    Is this a skull-like pebble or a fossil skull? It looks like it has teeth. It measures about 10cm in length.
  10. I made this a few years ago and I'm not sure if I shared it with the group or not. Its something I came up with and thought it would be cool to frame and hang near my desk. Its not fancy and the verbiage might not be precise but I think you get the Idea Besides fossils, I collect specimen grade seashells, minerals, skulls, and artifacts (I include artifacts into Natural History). I made/printed one off for each collection. Happy Collecting!
  11. I found this broken nodule in an outcrop of Pennsylvanian shale in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m wondering if the fossil could be the upper part of a skull? Other common fossils from this site include fragmentary fish remains (e.g., teeth, spines, dermal denticles, and coprolites from sharks and other fishes), as well as invertebrate remains from ammonites, gastropods, bivalves, brachiopods, corals, and conularia. If this is a skull, would you guess it to be from a fish, amphibian, or reptile? I don’t see any traces of teeth in the nodule, but I can provide closer views of areas that might be o

    Triassic Marine Reptile Skull

    This skull is from the Triassic Formation of Yunnan Province, China. Any idea what kind of marine reptile is that?
  13. A few pics taken off a video. Indonesian, so I’m super skeptical - but am curious what this would be if it was real. One of the pics looks almost clay. Thoughts?

    Simosuchus ct anatomy

    Hello together, I am not entirely sure if the fossil ID section is the right place for this, but I am hoping for information on a fossil specimen, its not one I hold in hands, but a ct scan, and I think I may not post pictures because they are copyrighted. While looking for new inspirations for my model building I took a close look at this wonderful ct scan of a Simosuchus clarki skull. A pugnosed crocodile, how sweet is that? I wonder two things: -how is that bilateral bone called that in many crocodiles protrudes downwards from the skullbase reaching between the ma
  15. Dear Forum members, A few years ago I bought this piece from a fellow collector. The description mentioned that it is probably a Platecarpus sp. atlas and axis vertebrae, Niobrara Fm. Gove Co. Kansas. I think that this is acutally the supraoccipital, epioccipital, basisphenoid and several other skull parts. I do not know if this is indeed from a Platecarpus species? if so, which species could this be? I'd like to know whether this piece is Coniacian, Santonian or Campanian in age. Perhaps the preservation already can point in a direction. the fossils are all very flatt
  16. Hello all: Attached is a picture of what I believe is a fossilized skull that I found sitting in the grass on top of the soil in Fort Greene Park, located in Brooklyn, New York City (in the area known of Brooklyn known as Fort Greene). The fossil is approximately 1 and 1/2 inches long. I struggled to decide which photos to add. What you cannot see in the attached photos is the other side of the fossil, which preserved quite distinctly nasal cavities. I'm a lawyer, and I do not have any background in paleontology, though I did take geology 101

    Skull ID

    Hello, new to the forum and looking for some help with this skull cap I found. It was found on the Kansas River in central Kansas after heavy rains. I included one picture exactly where I found it and a few pictures of it now after it's dried in my garage. It's approximately 3' wide and very heavy. I have an idea what it might be but would like to hear some opinions. Thank you for any assistance.
  18. Borrowed this original museum replica of Australopithecus africanus otherwise known as the beautiful Mrs Ples. I'm planning on making a ceramic replica of this positive foam cast. The detail on this replica is pretty amazing, it has the bone texture, cracks and the reconstruction of the missing pieces of the skull. Looking forward to sharing this project with the forum.
  19. Hi there I've always wanted a sabertooth skull, and for the past year i see many coming the same seller among other fossils from our favorite auction site. They never really explain how much of the skull, eggs, pssitacosaurus, is authentic and not responded to messages. Do you recommend these products? Thanks!
  20. Hello everyone, i saw this on a auction site. Looks really impressive and legit. But I have some doubts if the work that has been done there is good or not. Do you want think teeth or anything elsewhere are fixed with composite ? if anything seemed weird to you, I’ll be happy to know thanks in advance

    Cameloid skull and ramus- NE SD ?

    Whew. Last one with identifying marks to identify. Is a museum cast. UNSM 4616 Sure, I could email the collections curator at Morril Hall, but I’m afraid to wear out my welcome. As of yet have been unable to find data on this one on my own. Figure I’ll give yinze a crack at it before I bother the museum for the twentieth time. My research shows this to be a camel of some sort. It is likely Nebraska or South Dakota in origin for the original due to the provenance of the other casts yinze have seen me dealing with the last few weeks.

    FOSSIL SKULL... NEED IDENTIFICATION

    Found in South Texas
  23. Hi! I was recently given a partial oreodont skull to prep & restore. The reconstruction went well, there was a very little excess rock to clean away & the pieces that I do have went together smoothly. BUT after it was assembled, certain areas of the skull began turning green. The skull fragments had been stored in a temperature & humidity controlled environment for a number of years before i began working on it. I'm wondering if a change in environments or being handled for the first time in a long time might have something to do with it? Has anyone experienced anything like this
  24. This Psittachosaurus skull is from Liaoning, China. Is it genuine?
  25. Hi everyone! Many of you have probably already seen this piece. The seller says it’s probably a Troodonor or Dromaeosaur and that it’s from an old 80’s collection. I’m interested, what is your opinion on it’s state, the species and restoration? Also, why would they keep the surrounding matrix on the skull?
