  1. Kem kem claw

    Hello! Can you help me for ID this claw? It is from kem kem. The seller told me that it has not restoration. Thank you so much
  2. Hi guys what do you think of this dinosaur egg? It misses quite a lot off egg shell right? It comes from an old collection and is found in the Aix-en-Provence, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence in France. Often sold as Hypselosaurus egg. Approximately 25 cm. I know these eggs are quite rare but I am doubting.
  3. Hi there, I inherited a few specimens from my late grandfather and unfortunately did not know of the collections existence until after he had passed and as a result do not know any of history or where they were found/purchased. I would be very grateful for any information anyone could provide on any of the potential fossils. Thanks! Apologies for any issues in uploading as it's my first post. I also weighed the specimens if that's of any help: #1 (178grams), #2 tooth (2grams) #3 (116grams) #4 spherical specimen (224grams) #5 (89grams)
  4. Mystery bone

    So, this is my first post here, and I have what I imagine might be an unusual case for this forum. I work for a travelling dinosaur exhibit, setting up a display of real fossils. Within the last year, our owners purchased a number of dinosaur fossils from a dealer (ie, an acquaintance of theirs) and shipped them to our CEO's home, who later sent them to our company's repair shop to have travel cases built, before shipping them to our show on the road. Somewhere in all of that, some of the fossils' original information was lost. I reached out to our executives who promised to look into it and get back to me, but naturally, they would forget, I would remind them, they would never get back to me, and I spent multiple months in that cycle. So, here's everything I know: I originally assumed it was a Triceratops scapula, because it had been offhandedly mentioned to me that was one of the purchases. However, I learned that the scapula was sent to our second show, and after comparing it to images of skeletons, I ruled that out. I changed my guess to Triceratops Ulna. A very well known paleontologist (whose name I won't reveal here) visited our show as part of a media promotion this summer, and when asked, took a look. He initially didn't disagree with my assessment, but a few days later emailed me, saying that after additional analysis of the pictures he took, he had changed his mind to Triceratops tibia, and later, after consulting a colleague who specializes in Ceratopsians, he asserted it was a Triceratops Fibula. Some time later, I finally talked to someone in accounting, who was able to get me the various invoices, which was somehow less helpful than you'd think it would be. But it did let me get in touch with our dealer, who is notoriously secretive and doesn't share much in terms of sourcing. She did reply to me, however, telling me it is an... Edmontosaurus humerus. Or at least that was the highlighted bone in the diagram she sent me, which is the closest piece of "official" documentation that I've seen since it was purchased. However, this looks different to the same bone on mounted skeletons of Edmontosaurus as well, at least to my eyes. tl;dr: I no longer trust anybody. Multiple conflicting identifications, I don't know where it came from, other than a mention in the dealer's email that it's from the Hell Creek formation. Company is restructuring, so getting responses from anyone is a miracle. I can upload better pictures of the fossil later if necessary. I no longer put this piece on display because I simply don't know what to call it. Help.
  5. Shark or dinosaur?

    Hi is this a shark or a dinosaur tooth it’s 1cm long location and time is unknown
  6. Theropod dinosaur vertebra?

    Hello. I got this dinosaur vertebra from Nemegt Formation. Size 7cm long. It seems like a theropod caudal vertebra. But I don't know exactly what species it is.
  7. Hello is this psittacosaurus skull is real and any restoration and repair done to it ?
  8. Baby dinosaur head

  9. Help ID possible sauropod bone?

    I just picked up this fossil at the Denver Fossil and Gem Show today. The dealer told me its likely from a sauropod. I'm not sure but I think its maybe an ischium, pubis? Any help with IDing this would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Clutch of small eggs?

    Found this a couple days ago on my ranch. Western Colorado - Morrison Formation. On the surface. No prep besides light brushing. I'm not that knowledgeable, but could this be a clutch of small dinosaur or other ancient reptile eggs? Lots of dinosaur activity in the area. Probably about 20 eggs total including what isn't visible in the middle. 105g total weight. They measure roughly 1/2 inch or 1.25cm each. Larger pics included in link. Thank you https://postimg.cc/gallery/nni2692y/508eae1d/
  11. Hell Creek Dino Vertebrae

    Looking for a little help identifying some Hell Creek dinosaur vertebrae. When I purchased these they were described as Struthiomimus and Dromaeosaur, but I don't think those ID's are correct. I think I know what most of them are (the dinosaur anatomy 101 post by @troodon was very helpful), but I'm still unsure on a few. I also thought posting this might help others when it comes to identifying hell creek verts. So I think these 8 are Thescelosaurus caudal verts. They're all fairly chunky and most have a well defined ridge in the middle of the centrum.
  12. https://phys.org/news/2019-09-hadrosaur-japan-dinosaur-diversity.html https://www.brightsurf.com/news/article/090519491504/a-new-duck-billed-dinosaur-kamuysaurus-japonicus-identified.html
  13. I've just received this weird little tooth from the Hell Creek Formation. It was sold to me as a Dromaeosaur premax tooth but I have my doubts as it's quite robust. That said, the other candidate would be a Tyrannosaur and I've never seen a premax tooth with a twist like this. What's more, the carinae are strange - one has nice crisp serrations (I thought they looked a lot like Tyrannosaur serrations) while the other is smooth (it doesn't look like it ever had any serrations). Anyone have any idea what it might be?
  14. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  15. Plant or dinosaur fossil? No idea

    Not sure what this could be. Appears to be some type of fossil with cell structure. Found it walking my property in western Colorado - Morrison Formation. No preparation done besides rinsing in water and a light brushing. Full size images in link. https://postimg.cc/gallery/2c94nahdm/565295ef/ Please let me know your thoughts. Much appreciated.
  16. May I have your view on the authenticity and condition of this egg cluth? It is from Guangdong of China.
  17. New discovery! Something different this time....very different! I was quite stunned when I first set my eyes upon this one. It's another dino tooth, but it doesn't look Iguanodontian. Look at those long ridges! It has a prominent primary ridge and is coarsely serrated. Around 6 mm across the crown. I have compared it to Iguanodontians including Barilium and hypselospinus and dryosaurids, but it doesn't match any of those. For a start the serrations are course on my dino tooth and on Iguanodontians the denticles go all the way over the tip of the crown and they are much finer in iguanodontians anyway, and the known Wealden ones lack ridges running down from EACH denticle - Iguanodon has quite a fine serrated edge and only one or two ridges, but many denticles. So next I compared my tooth with Hypsilophodon thinking I had a good chance of a match here, but I couldn't find any that compared, when you look closely, with hypsylophodontids either! So next I looked at thyreophorans. Known Wealden teeth of ankylosauria group are known but again I couldn't find a close match. So I looked at stegosauria next and I found some similarities. But still not certain. It's an extremely interesting find for the Wealden whatever it is as it's a bit different! Any ideas anyone?
  18. Is it a vertebra or cross section of bone?

    Found this today on the North Sulfur River. I can’t tell if it’s a vertebra or a cross section of bone or something completely different- I’m not familiar with the concentric circle in it.
  19. Saurid Skull, Croatian Coast

    Hello Sorry I'm new I just registered to find some answers Yesterday while searching for some fossilized clams or marine stuff I came across this little beauty. It's about 7 cm wide and some 5 cm high. I found it at the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. Anybody knows what it could be? And, what do I do with it now? Do I carry it to a museum? Kind regards
  20. Possible agatized dinosaur bone

    I found this today in a stream bed. It doesn’t look like just a rock to me. Seems to resemble bone with tissue. Any help in identification would be greatly appreciated
  21. Found while digging in the badlands of Montana in Glendive, in the very corner of the Hell Creek formation we found this single flat piece. At first I only noticed the one hole in the front, but upon closer inspection I discovered a partial second hole above the first, and one side has a structure visible inside the bone. Just wondering if anyone has any clue what it could be! Thanks for any input in advance.
  22. Hello, I have had a long interest in fossils and have acquired a small but very nice quality (at least in my opinion) collection over the years. I've recently become interested in dinosaur tracks/footprints and would like to add one to my collection. The thing is, I can't seem to find any anywhere that don't have staining/coloring applied to them. I understand that this makes them "easier to see" but to me it's kind of strange and detracts from the fossil. If the imprint can't be seen on its own, I don't really want it... The painting just looks a bit silly to me. I've only come across one so far that doesn't have staining on it, and it's this one here (I've included a picture below - the track itself is apparently a bit over 6 inches). But I don't know what to think about this one since the matrix seems cracked and repaired very heavily and the price is still seemingly very expensive (at least to me). I would be very interested to know anyone's thoughts on how you approach dinosaur tracks. And if you have thoughts on this specific example, I'd certainly be open to hearing that too. Thanks a lot!!
  23. Bone ID - very specific shape

    Another find in Glendive, MT. This piece was found along with other shattered pieces of bone and we jacketed them together. I am slowly working to reconstruct, and this is the biggest whole piece I have. The shape is so specific, I am curious as to if anyone knows at least where in the body this bone was (arm, leg rib, ect) I'd appreciate it! And if you know even more, all the better! Thanks for looking
  24. Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I will see if he can send more. I have included mostly pictures of the skull and teeth as I figured they would likely be most helpful for identification. It is assumed all these pieces belong together but it is possible it is just a random collection. The pictures in order are: skull facing front, skull bottom, skull side (close up), three different angles of the jaw/teeth, and then one pic of all the pieces together with a ruler to get a ballpark idea of sizing. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and hopefully someone out there has some guesses. Thanks!
