  1. Various drawings

    Two T rex, some hippo bones and a few designs that aren't strickly paleoart but I hope are okay to post nonetheless!
  2. New Dinosaur From Jehol Biota

    New small feathered dinosaur was not fully grown but had elaborate feathers. Bone histology shows it was not an adult. Also shows paravian dinosaurs grew differently than birds. https://eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2020-01/sdnh-ndd011520.php
  3. Hadrosaur Egg

    My Hadrosaur egg finally came in I was really happy with it there’s also a place in the matrix where another egg laid
  4. Dinosaur Bone from the Isle of Wight, UK

    A recent find from the stretch of beach between Chilton Chine and Grange Chine on the Isle of Wight, England. It is from the Wessex Formation, about 130 million years old (Early Cretaceous). The bone is quite rolled by the sea but there are still some features remaining and so i was hoping it could still be identified, at least perhaps the type of bone that it is (either the end of some kind of long bone or a metapodial. Length= 4.4 cm; width= 3.8 cm; height= 1.9 cm). I was leaning towards a proximal radius or metatarsal but i would like a second opinion. The shape of the shaft cross section, in the fifth photo, is roughly triangular (where the bone would continue). The most common dinosaurs from this deposit are ornithopods such as Iguanodon and Hypsilophodon, so these would provide the best comparison. Thanks all!
  5. My Canada fossil project of 2020

    After getting my Horseshoe canyon formation Hadrosaur and Ceratopsian fossils I decided to set a goal for 2020. To get dinosaur and and other fossils from the Carboniferous to the Cretaceous from around Canada formations. If anyone could help me out with this please PM me, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
  6. Granddaughters Collection

    My granddaughters collection has really took off in the new year. We have ran out of room on the table and now expanding elsewhere in the house. With the mammoth tooth we received today It had gone up a notch. She had a huge collection of petrified wood also.
  7. “@Monica Yes, there are just so many fossils here that now only the best material is actually collected. This usually means anything articulated or reasonably complete. Isolated bones like the ones in my pictures are all pretty much ignored, which is sad, as yes they will inevitably just erode away. I think there needs to be a better system personally. It doesn't make sense to just let these great fossils be destroyed by the elements. But if collecting was allowed how could it be regulated to make sure only expendable material was taken? And how would you stop people then selling those bones for a profit? It's a hard situation, you want to save the fossils, but letting collectors take things opens up a bunch of other issues as well.” @Paleoworld-101 I have a idea for this. What if they would have a setup of some sort at the entrance of the park where the park staff would check to see if you have collected any valuable specimens. If not you would have legal ownership over the fossil, they would do this to teach people about there fossil recourse and so the fossils would not sit there and erode away over time since they would be able to bring some fossils home and learn about them. Keeping the good specimens to the Palaeontologist but the other fossils that are no use to the Palaeontologist to the guest preventing these fossils to erode away and keeping all Paleontological and geological recourses and history. This is just something I was thinking after reading this in @Paleoworld-101s topic probably won’t happen though.
  8. Hey everyone, I hope your 2020 is going well so far. As the title says, what's everyones first fossil of the year? And what fossils are you hoping to add to your collection for 2020? My first fossil of this year is this beauty of a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth. I'm also hoping to get a nice allosaurus tooth for my collection. Looking forward to seeing everyones finds, purchases and wants
  9. I’m newer to the site and I’m trying to figure out if these eggs are real before I buy them they all come with a letter of authenticity and locations to where they was found and a bunch of other information can someone please shed some light on these photos for me
  10. Here's another for the Ichnofossil lovers amongst you. I love having a look though the sandstone as it can be quite a challenging to get your eye in as they're not always obvious at first look. I've been told by the local experts that the bigger is most likely from a small ornithopod. There appear to be a number of other single toe marks around the block and what looks like 3 claw marks to the right of the bigger print. So there must have been quite a few different dinosaurs moving through the area at the time.
  11. Hi sometime later this year I will be going out West in Alberta, B.C and Saskatchewan. And I will be going down to Montana for 2 days to collect fossils since I can’t really do that in Alberta. I am wondering would I be able to bring those fossils into Alberta and then fly with them, and take them back to Ontario? Thank you!!
  12. 2012 gathering 2013 gathering 2014 gathering 2015 gathering 2016 gathering 2017 gathering (mid-year) 2017 gathering (end-year) 2018 gathering 2019 gathering (Chinese New Year) Hi everyone, the Singapore Fossils Collector had our annual meet-up recently. As usual, there was food, laughter and lots of new faces! It was the biggest meet-up I've ever had at my place, with 30 people in my house that day. It is also the last meet-up at my house as I will have new responsibilities (marriage, new house etc) soon so I won't be able to host any other gatherings for a long time. First up, a quick look at my room: Thankfully, my brother was willing to let me temporarily display some fossils in his room:
  13. Hello all, I saw one seller online listing this piece for auction. I'm interested in bidding but the fact the seller is from Taiwan worries me. Other than that, the egg looks nice. Seller says it might be a small tyrannosaurus or large therapod egg. Locality is noted as "East Asia", which I assume is china. And the description says this is from an old Chinese collection exported in the 80s. Cretaceous of East Asia. Best wishes
  14. Wants for 2020

    As 2019 is coming to an end I am curious what is on people’s want list for next year. Did you get everything you wanted or is there still that elusive fossil eluding you? It’s been a varied year for me and a lucky one at that as I think it has been for many other members looking at some of the incredible fossils you have obtained this year. Hopefully 2020 is as successful if not more successful than 2019. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and bring on 2020!
  15. Fossil claw

    I got this claw a few years ago from Mongolia they described it as a prenocephale. Anyone know anything about claws from Mongolia ?
  16. Hell Creek Femur

    Hi I recently stumbled upon this femur with with a very large & pointy fourth trochanter. I have not seen that before. The length is 45cm. Sorry for not providing straight views. Location: Hell Creek Fm, Jordan, Montana Do you know what animal it belongs to?
  17. Hello everyone! I just received a dinosaur vertebra from the Upper Jurassic of Cambelas, Torres Vedras in Portugal, and I was wondering if it would be possible to identify it any further than "dinosaur". Perhaps @Troodon and @LordTrilobite could give their opinions? Here are some photos: Side photos: Top/bottom photos: Thanks so much for your help! (And thanks to @Vieira for the fossil!) Monica
  18. Greetings, I recently bought a fossil vertebra from a moroccan seller who claimed it was a Plesiosaurus vertebra, and through I did not believe him I made a deal with him and I got the fossil for a cheap price. My guess it that it belongs to an Otodus chark or an Enchodus fish, is a quite big vertebrae anyway... What do you think? Thank you very much in advance.
  19. Hi I just bought these two dinosaur fossils from Alberta Canada. A Ceratopsian vert and a Hadrosaur metatarsal. The colouring and look/preservation of the Hadrosaur metatarsal makes me think they didn’t come from the Horseshoe canyon formation like it says but instead the Dinosaur Park formation. since it doesn’t give much information other then the Horseshoe canyon formation it’s possible, Thanks for future help. Ceratopsian vert
  20. My recent find

    Here are some more close ups of the shell fragments any idea what species they may come from
  21. My recent find

    Picked up lbs and lbs of these dinosaur egg shells this weekend at a show anyone know what these species they may come from? Thanks for everyone’s help the nest they were found in had a bunch of crushed eggs and only a few whole eggs which I will be getting next month I’ll make sure to post the pics
  22. Hi here is my small collection of dinosaur fossils so far, enjoy! a odd looking Tyrannosaur. indet tooth from the Judith River formation of Montana. A Spinosaur tooth from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Abeliasaur tooth Kem Kem Beds of Morocco perhaps (Rugops sp.)
  23. Reptilian Skull?

    Hi, the skull below is found at Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, China. It is very small, about 4.5cm in length. Does it look like a reptilian skull?
  24. I've really started to look for fossils of interest to me (I'm a newbie to it, and have had fun researching). Dino eggs make me the most nervous, after reading (including on this site) about all the fakes --- even those sold at "reputable" auctions. I'm especially interested in Sauropods and came across these. Details: "Hypselosaurus priscus", Maastrichtian, Late Cretaceous, discovered in France. 1. I've been comparing to images on this site that users have noted are real --- and I feel those characteristics and things to look for align with these. But am I missing anything? 2. These are hatched, correct? This was my assumption based on unhatched examples (and the price!), but the auction language made it unclear. Thanks for your insights --- I've had fun lurking the site and learning as a non-member for quite a while.
  25. Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any good books to help identify dinosaur fossils? Thanks so much, Wyatt
