  1. Hello, I've put teeth here for Id a couple of times and always received a satisfactory answer. I hope you can help me this time too. It is about this Ceratopsidae tooth from the Niobrara Formationn (Wyoming). Unfortunately no fossils of this group are known from this formation and I therefore wanted to ask you if you have any idea what species of dinosaurs the tooth could belong to. The tooth is 1,5cm in size. I hope if you can help me with this! Best regards from Germany!
  2. Dinosaur fossils from the mid Jurassic are generally rare but the Isle of Skye in Scotland has revealed fossils sites preserving around 50 footprints on ancient coastal mudflats. The footprints suggest that Stegosaurs and possible ancient cousins of duck billed dinosaurs were living in the Isle of Skye around 170mya along with large Sauropods & Carnivores, suggesting a high diversity of dinosaurs from the mid Jurassic in Scotland. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/03/200311140536.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily%2Ffossils_ruins%2Fpaleontology+(Paleontology+News+--+ScienceDaily) The Journal article is listed below and is open access https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0229640 1. dePolo PE, Brusatte SL, Challands TJ, Foffa D, Wilkinson M, Clark NDL, et al.

  6. hi, I'm a student from Belgium. I've been searching the internet and I can't find any unprepared fossils for sale, can you help me out?
  7. Last week I spent ten days visiting Argentina. Most of that time was spent in Patagonia. Argentina does not allow any private fossil collecting, so this wasn't going to be that kind of trip. On our way back from visiting a penguin colony at Punta Tombo we stopped in Trelew whose number one attraction is the Museo Paleontoligico Egidio Feruglio. It primarily features fossils from Patagonia, dinosaurs and mammals, plus Permian age plants, petrified wood, etc. I got to spend a quick hour there and took some photos. Most of the labels were in Spanish and I didn't have time to take notes. Hope you enjoy what I was able to get:

  9. Greetings kind people, Hope you are having a nice day:) There was a similar thread posted around the same topic, but a lot of those websites could not meet all my requirements so I'm here to seek help I'm looking for websites which are: 1) reliable and reputable 2) very inexpensive 3) ship internationally (particularly India) with good packaging and reasonable prices 4) good quality and vast collection 5) can provide most of my requirements in a single order(since I'll be shipping it to India, it would be economical to order everything from single website to cut down on transportation costs). I'll take down the post in case of violations of the guidelines. Please do let me know. Thanks in advance:)

  11. Greetings kind people, I am a complete novice in the field of fossil collecting. Kindly bear with me. My objective for collecting fossils: I want to learn paleontology work. I want to observe the fossils under a microscope, understand their body structure, their food habits.... Basically get a *whole story of the fossil* which I own, something that paleontologists do (I also want to explore all the methods that paleontologists use to study fossil and recreate them at home). So any fossil that will enable me to learn more about itself, I'd surely buy that. And also fossils which are more closer to actuality, rather than rare or good looking fossils. So any fossil that reveals more information is favoured over rare or good-looking fossils So here are my questions: 1) I'm trying to buy a spinosaur tooth. The seller is selling one spinosaur tooth which is red in colour for a higher price compared to a spinosaur tooth which looks almost like a rock. So is the red colour tooth more authentic or more valuable etc? Or is it just the same? My objective is to study those fossils under microscope. So if the red spinosaur tooth will provide more information, I'd buy that. 2) I see some dinosaur tooth still having some enamel. How is this possible? I mean shouldn't enamel be replaced by minerals too? Or is the enamel the only thing that is intact? If it is intact does it mean I'm holding a tooth which might have bit another dinosaur moments before it died and I can see the traces of that activity when I observe under the microscope? 3) I've seen polished ammonites which were split open. They carried a lot of information within, compared to unpolished ammonite. Which among those two types would reveal more information about the ammonite itself? Or which one should I go for, in general? 4)I am also planning to buy amber fossils. Some pointers and what to look for and what to keep away from would be appreciated. 5) Lastly, trilobites. How are trilobite fossils so well preserved? I've seen reedops protruding out of the rock like it's actually alive. But I read something about cast fossils and enhancements. So if I buy a reedops trilobite, does it mean it's been remade using plaster etc, or is it just as it is? Please bear in mind that I want to own fossils which closely resembles actuality Thank you so much for bearing with my silly doubts .I just want to educate myself and be an amateur paleontologist, studying fossils from home. Have a lovely day! P.s- I can upload some pictures and website links if need be.
  12. Greetings kind people, I'm so sorry if this is such a noob question. But I've searched and searched but I couldn't find answers to these on internet. (kindly correct me because I feel I maybe wrong): Smithsonian website said licking dinosaur fossil helps in identifying between a rock or a fossil... But isn't fossil a rock in itself? Fossils are made because minerals get replaced and it's not possible for bone to remain in its original state for millions of years. So, it's not the original material anymore.. so licking a fossil should equal to licking a rock? In that case, licking should not work?

  15. Oxford University Museum of Natural History (May take some time for me to upload all of the pics, so give or take 30 min) My thing is if I’m traveling to another country, I love seeing a varied collection of fossils at the museum found in that same country. This was exactly that. Stunning and one of my favorites. Positives: If you are looking for Mesozoic everything, this museum is for you - much important paleontology history here Many fossils on display from many eras Organized, convenient More actual fossils than replicas Some curve ball specimens (more impressive, less known ones on display that I did not anticipate on seeing prior) You leave telling yourself you would like to go back. Negatives: No complaints that I can think of really, just tough taking pics with the glare from the glass, but that’s always the case. My vote is 9/10 for dinosaur lovers considering quality, not quantity...anyhow there is definitely your fair share, with jaw dropping displays, literally. My favorite two were Megalosaurus bucklandii and a gigantic Pliosaur jaw that you will find in the pics. Enjoy the mini tour, tried to cover as much as I could.
  16. 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

  18. Hi I was just at my aunts house and in her house I found a ammonite I asked her where it was from and she said she got it in Cuba which made me wonder what creatures lived in Cuba in the Mesozoic I found out In the Jurassic there where Pliesiosaurs, Ichthyosaurs and ammonites and lots of pterosaurs also there has been some dinosaurs too which surprised me because I thought Cuba was under water there’s a few remains of sauropods a Camarasaur and a Diplodocus like sauropod some more fragmented Sauropod bones and some bones of a unknown Saurischian also some unknown reptile bones have been found too I hope this helps with the Mesozoic creatures of Cuba this is my first informational post Thanks!!
  19. Here is a thread to share some of your rarest partials that if whole would've been incredible specimens, but you know how it is sometimes... Yet they still amazing to own a piece of. I will start off by sharing a piece of the tail of a Probolichas Kristiae, an incredibly unique looking rare lichid trilobite from Oklahoma that would've of been incredible if whole of course yet this piece still has amazing detail and I am more that happy to own
  20. Some Dinosaur fossils I might be acquiring

    Hi I am wondering if you can get a positive ID out of these fossils I might be acquiring thanks!! The first is a ceratopsian vertebrae from the horseshoe canyon formation of Alberta Canada the second is a Cetiosaurus bone piece cut of a sauropod leg bone from Oxford England and last is some teeth of Gojirasasaurus from the bull canyon formation of New Mexico USA.
  21. I have been asked this question many times. The non avian Dinosaurs died out the the end of the Mesozoic but many other animal groups survived. Among them were the Crocodilians. And people ask me all the time how they survived while the Dinosaurs didn't. So this has inspired me to make my first video on my dedicated Paleontology channel, Paleo Analysis. I am making these videos for the purpose of education so feel free to share this video as well as future videos! https://youtu.be/Gan8Vu4oM0w

  24. A program for the older kids

    Today we did something pretty cool. We took our dinosaurs to The Inn, an assisted living facility. The science talk got deep and they were really into it. We gave them fossils and did our thing for an hour and a half ! The seniors were so much fun and pretty enjoyable for me just a few months removed from my fathers death. We got asked back to do the shark thing Fun way to expand our programs !!!
