  1. UPDATE: I politely messaged the seller with the correct ID and have received a very friendly reply thanking me and that there was no intent to deceive. They say they'll change the listing when back from a foreign holiday. Described as a dinosaur egg with worm infestation, and with a very high price tag! It's obviously a coral colony, probably Diphyphyllum sp.
  2. This vert sold recently, but curious anyway to see what other forum members think. Said to be Megalosaurid, from Kimmeridgian, Jurassic - Kimmeridge Clay Dorset, England. Approximately 7.5cm x 6.5cm x 7cm in size. Thoughts?
  3. ID 3 species in a Permian themed exhibit

    I just went to this traveling exhibit in a museum in a city where my brother lives that it is about the animals and life in the Permian period and I got pictures of 3 fossils, an ammonite, a trilobite and a crinoid but I don’t know what species and genus they are?
  4. Is this a footprint?

    Found this at Rocken End, St Catherine's point, Isle of Wight, think it comes from the greensand formation but I'd be surprised if this is a footprint since this is a marine deposit pictures attached below
  5. Which came first? Dinosaur or Chicken?

    As promised, here are 2 photos with measurements showing an egg that was in the collection of fossils found in a storage locker. Again, no known location of origin. There appears to be an embryo still attached, which is pretty dang cool if you ask me, but not enough physical detailed features to be able to identify what class of animal it belongs to. I've considered chipping away a bit of the surrounding stone to see if I could acquire more detail of the egg itself, but I'm "chicken". (mic drop) Anyway, I've been corny enough. If anyone has any idea on what this may be I'd be eternally grateful.
  6. Hello! I just wanted to check on these two pieces before they go into the black hole known as my 'unidentifiable bone' bin. Both are from Monmouth County New Jersey (Cretaceous). I found fossil number 1 two days ago and unfortunately, it didn't make the trip back home in one piece. When I looked at it though, the broken sections looked more like my broken Mosasaur and Enchodus teeth than bone (scan below), and it also reminded me of a fossil my brother found years ago that we weren't able to identify. I looked online and the texture of the recent 'thing' looked similar to some dinosaur teeth (Titanosaur and sauropod especially) so I just wanted to see what everyone thought. Thanks again! -Frank
  7. I recently found something amazing for sale,it is claimed to be a fossilized dino embryo. It is said that this is fossillized seed or brain but later identified it as a dino.I found something similar but throw it away because mom said that it was just a stone :(.
  8. Anzu Sketch

    Drew this Anzu today and thought I should share it. Hope y'all enjoy!
  9. Do you have thousands of dollars? How susceptible are you to financially ruinous bouts of pareidolia? I've been sort of fascinated by online sellers who seem to be genuine in their passion for paleontology but completely clueless, so I thought I'd share. There honestly doesn't seem to be any purposeful shenanigans here to shame, but I really hope nobody buys these. The item description for a sad looking cycloptic dinosaur head reads: (Seller ad copy removed by moderator) Lastly there's my favorite, a triceratops hatchling. I've included my professional forensic reconstruction of this lumpy little embryo for the advancement of science. If I'm wrong and these are actual fossils, I apologize.
  10. Nemegt Dinosaur Claws

    Here are a few more Negmet claws. Not sure what they are. Claw 1
  11. Hello all, I was at my local rock shop and I noticed there was a Triceratops jaw for sale. I am curious about if it is genuine or if it has any repairs. The teeth look like they were inserted. I don't see myself buying it, but I would like to know what other forum members think about the jaw. Sorry I don't have any better photos. It was behind a glass case.
  12. Hello, this was found in the Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota in an area with a lot of triceratops, hadrosaur, and some struthiomimus fossils. It looks to be bone, as it is porous on the inside... however it is quite a bit heavier and denser than most of the other fossils I've found... similar to petrified wood. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on what it might be.
  13. New Bat Wing Dinosaur

  16. Dinosaur bone ID needed

    Hey guys. This is an interesting dinosaur bone, I have no clue what it could be. It’s 25cm and from Morocco. Anyone have an idea? Thanks for the input! Regards
  17. Dinosaur foot claw

    Hello! I received this claw today Do you know what dinosaur it can be? The seller assures that the claw is not restored. Foot claw and toe bone (posible from other dinosaur) from Kem Kem (Morocco) 0% restoration, ¿Carcharodontosaurus? Size: claw 6cm, bone 3,5cm Thank you so much!
  18. Hello everyone, my name is Savvas and I am new to this forum, I am a collector of ancient coins for years and just yesterday I got my first fossil (trilobite) and I am really excited! My question is about a tooth of a mosasaur I found in the same store in my town that I got the one that bought yesterday, a good store for science gadgets and things like that, that sells some fossils but it is not their speciality. I have read some things about the teeth and know that the crowns are most commonly original, butmany times the matrix and the root is faked for artistic purposes, so the one at the store is a tooth not very big nor small, inside a matrix and has a root too, the root is small, the price is 40 euros. So I understand that without seeing it you can'treally tell, but can you please help me understand what are the signs of a fake one and of a real one so when I will go there to buy it to know what I see. I would really appreciate your help on this matter. Thank you kindly for all your help!
  19. I am looking into buying one of these parts of a mosasaur jaw and wanted to make sure there real. I believe there is, but getting a second opinion always helps.
  20. Raptor ID

    From Hell Creek, Carter County, Montana. Thoughts on what theropod this can be?
  21. One of my favorite fossil types. Dinosaur eggs come in all shapes and sizes — from an oval as small as a thumb, to a sphere as big as a basketball. These fossils are often faked by the hundreds, if not thousands, in Chinese factories (China is also the world's richest source of true dinosaur eggs). However, there are also many natural-occurring objects mistaken as dinosaur eggs such as concretions or even fortuitously-shaped rocks. Despite these hurdles, dinosaur eggs remain one of the most desirable of all fossils. NOTE: Dinosaur egg and eggshells, by their nature as an ichnofossil, are challenging for private collectors to identify. None of the IDs I provide here are acceptable on a scientific level as I lack the tools to examine the cross section slices of my eggshells. However, for the sake of documentation I will still provide accurate names and locality here to the best of my ability. First up are my Oviraptorid eggs "Common" Name: Oviraptor egg Elongatoolithus sp. 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Basin, Guangdong "Common" Name: Citipati egg Macroolithus yaotunensis 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Basin, Guangdong Length: 8.78 inches (Note: Has composited eggshells) "Common" Name: Oviraptorid(small type) Nest Elongatoolithus sp. 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Formation Guangdong
  22. One of my first pieces I bought a couple of years ago was the one below. It came without ID and is supposed to be a part of a dinosaur bone from Morocco. It was quite inexpensive. But now after some reading about lots of 'fossils' from Morocco being fake/manipulated I got suspicious. Firstly, it was quite cheap. Secondly, it is very thick and smoothly carved out of the stone. On the other hand is the fact, that the visible bone structure with the small tunnels looks real. Has somebody seen something similar and can tell me if it is real or a fake? May be it is a real bone but not from a dinosaur that is somehow glued on a natural rock?
  23. Tyrannosaur, Dromaeosaur, Other?

    Hello fossil enthusiasts! To identify this fossil, I'd love some help. My uncle had it, and now that he is passed, it was sent to me. He did not leave much information on it, and now we are all curious. He had a note with it that said "W. US LATE CRETACEOUS, DROM / TYRAN". I did a lot of research. It does look like the tooth belonged to one of those animals, but I am having difficulty figuring out which one. The lack of formation does not help. Could anyone here be able to weigh in on whether it came from a dromaeosaur or tyrannosaur? Or maybe some other dinosaur? His and my guess could be way off. I've read a lot of @Troodon posts so I could figure it out (without success), and would love for him or her to weigh in. Of course, all are welcome. Thank you!
  24. Dinosaur Tooth ID

    hello, many of you will have seen recent posts about this tooth. Alarmingly rather than help me to improve my services to you the great fossil community by helping me to rectifying my mistakes by supplying me with a more professional opinion of what this tooth might be sadly it was seen to be more of an exercise in ridicule at my expense. Therefore here is a chance for those peoples to redeem themselves with an apology by helping to correctly identify this tooth! Background... This tooth was bought as part of a private collection at the recent Tucson show. Sadly alot of the dinosaur material that I purchased had no to little identification apart from the formation with which it came and/or some vague location details. When I bought the collection I was privileged that @troodon was there to look over some of my purchases for me which I am very grateful for. This tooth was in this collection however the label that accompanied called it an Chirostenotes tooth from the two medicine, Teton county (with I presume is in Wyoming state). This was all the information I have. Hence why I stupidly did not question the validity of the identification and do more home work on the tooth before posting for sale.. my bad. However I recognised the tooth as being rather different to all the other teeth I had seen from my travels from the two medicine formation. Assessment so far... It clearly (now that I know) not a chirostenotes tooth nor an oviraptor tooth. (would have been pretty rare if so right! haha) to me it does not look tyrannosaurid. to me it is HUGE (measuring 2 cm long) for the usual raptorial teeth you see from this location. but clearly it is a theropod tooth. For me there is nothing to let me not think that it is from the two medicine formation. the collection came from a very reputable source and I was told that many of the teeth were found by the original owner. Conclusion... SO WHAT IS IT? Thank you for your time in looking at this post and for maturely assessing this tooth for me. Dealers can only improve their services if their knowledge base expands and their knowledge base improves to do this they need guidance from time to time. best wishes and look forward to your debate. fossils-uk
