  1. Unfortunaterly, there's not much information--the seller doesn't usually deal with dinosaur fossils and has had it instorage for over a decade, so the only info available is that it's a Hadrosaur egg, from China and cretaceous with shell loss to one side. No more specific as to location/formation. Length = 17.5 cm Weight = 4.3 kg So, what do people think about it? Now, I was wondering, could the base be hiding some damage/a hole? The base looks a bit off to me, like it's been added---is it a common bit of fakery to make a partial egg look complete by applying a base to them and could that be the case here? Thanks for any help and opinions.
  2. Are these three eggs genuine? With full shell coverage?
  3. Please ID

    Hello. My grandmother found this probably in the 1920’s. I have conflicting information. Some say is dinosaur egg, some say sedimentary geode. I must admit it looks nothing like the other geodes she and i collected together but perhaps it is. Thought i could get your opinions on this. Probably found in central texas although she never said where she got it. Thank you for your help. I can take better photos if these not good enough. Just let me know. There are no crystals inside.
  4. Egg or Rock?

    My father lives in SE MN, south of Rochester. He lives on a farm on top of a hill and has been doing a lot of topo work. In doing so, he has discovered that almost every rock he picks up has what appears to be seashells and fossilized plants in them. His research led him to conclude that the fossils are in the range of 400 million years old. The other day he was walking his land and saw what he thought was a potato sticking out of the ground. He picked it up and was puzzled. It feels hard like a rock, is smooth, and most shockingly it glows when light is applied to it. Is this an egg of some sort?
  5. Dinosaur egg with embryo?

    This egg is from Jiangxi, China. There are white deposits inside the egg. Are these bone fragments of an embryo?
  6. Hi i came across this Egg label as oviraptor egg from China look quite real to me( but not quite sure tho) what do you think about this? thank in advance!
  7. Egg ???

  8. ...an egg or a simple rock

    Hi, Found something resembling an egg in a field. The area is Jurassic inferior/Triassic. It's not the best pictures but if you aren't sure i can take more in the morning. Can you identify it for me?
  9. I hate to do it, but.... egg?

    I’m sure it’s not, but I’m not sure enough not to ask. I read the “is this an egg” post and am still not sure. There’s just a few pieces of the superficial layer left. It’s textured and has a thin outer layer: so, is it an egg? found Judith river formation along the milk river in Montana. thanks for the help
  10. Egg? Possibly?

    I found this along a creek here in Southeast Missouri. It looks like a fossilized egg. What do you think? I searched the site for egg with no results.
  11. Petrified find

    Hello and good evening everyone. I have a rather large curiosity. length is 25” X 14 1/2” X 6” estimated weight is 125 too 150 lbs found in Rogers Arkansas around Beaver Lake in or around 2012. I purchased this as a conversation piece to go in my waterfall that I am putting in my back yard and was very intrigued by it when I purchased it from an old friend. I’ve been told it is a dinosaur egg also have been told it is a Turtle? If it is a Turtle I cannot find where any of the openings would have been, head, legs or tail opening or a seam where it would have closed up? Hope you enjoy this, it’s very intriguing.
  12. Fossil? Egg?

    I’m new to the whole artifact and fossil hunting and actually forum posting! I would like to get opinions on this following find. It was found in a creek in SE Missouri. And any pointers on hunting and identifying would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  15. Egg?

    I know there are tons of 'not an egg' look alike rocks but as they don't seem to resemble this one I will venture to ask...my daughter found this in a shallow riverbed on our camping trip last week to central Connecticut. The brown shell like pieces are thick and uniform. There are some in the opposite side as well, will upload more pictures. This pic was taken the day of the find. Any insight would be welcome. My daughter is 4 and pulled it out because we were discussing all the different colors of the river rocks. This one looked nothing like the others. A man we had chatted with the day prior lives close to the riverbed and had spent the summer doing a lot of rock stacking and moving lots of the river stones around to build these rock nests in the water for his toddler to play in. A lot of the areas we were wading in were spots he'd been uncovering and relocating rocks. ANYWAY - any comments are welcome. Thanks in advance.
  16. Dinosaur egg

    An egg that I’ve recently acquired but not sure on the family or species it’s belongs too. I was thinking troodon based on the shell texture and size which is around 3 to 3 1/2 inches long any ideas? I have it in between 2 other eggs I have on the left is segnosaur and on the right is a protoceratops egg.
  17. For the purpose of this discussion I will refer to my find as an egg. Even though it may not be. I found this “egg” at a quarry in Southeast Michigan. I have done as much research as google will allow and still am not confident on its identity. On a side note I found another fossil in the same area that I am pretty sure is a type of brachiopod. Not sure if that would help with the identity of my “egg”.
  18. Good morning, please take a look at this artifact I discovered a few weeks ago and help me identify if this is something other than a rock with unique features and patterns. I have spent FAR too much time closely inspecting it and I'm convienced that it is something other than a naturally forming rock. Altough I'm not an expert in geology, I have collected thousands upon thousands of artifacts which is one of the reasons this one clearly stood out to me. The color, shape, pattern, and texture is very distinct. Please note that this artifact is not whole and has been broken in half. The photos are top down. What I see is a fossilized creature curled up in what could be an egg or borrow. It looks to be reptillian based off the patten of what could be the underbelly on one side of the fossil and the shape of the what I believe woud be the snout of the head (again it has been partially broken off). Also, there seems to be a long tail that wraps around the circumfrence of the unit and centered in the middle is the snout/head. When carefully observing the interior of where the break occurred, there apprears to be the spinal column (color differentation) originating from the head that may have lead to the torso as well as part of the torso. Lastly, there appears to be some digits to a claw (encircled). If anybody want to contact me for additional details, please don't hesitate.
  19. Pseudo fossil or egg?

    Hi all, see pictures below, i’m jn doubt if this is an egg or just geological. found in The Netherlands Holland, in mining area. thank you
  20. Please assist ID several finds

    Hi all, just got into fossils as a hobby, please see my introduction message i just posted. As a MD i have some knowledge on bone structure and shape, ofcourse not perfect with animals. I’ve several fossils found by my dad over the last 20y and myself last months. Literally in the backyard. (<< Town in Holland aka the Netherlands, Europe>>) Crucial in this is area is used for sand mining. This has resulted in a large lake, with depts up to 100meter (200+ft i believe. The water is fed by an old river, called ‘oude ijssel’. I will split this in batches, to keep things orderly. thank you so much A: Egg? Was one piece but dropped it. B: vertebrae of what? Looks like bone to me, the verbebrea part. With clear distinction to what i believe is soft tisseu with skin ( 1 side)
  21. Hi, Could this be an egg fossil? I found walking on the beach and broke in the hope of finding an embryo. size: 4.5cm
  22. An archosaurian egg ?

    Hello everyone, I am a Belgian student in biology, and I love paleontology. Last week, I was walking on a slag heap near my home in the town of Marcinelle, at the coal mine called "Bois du Cazier". My attention was mainly focused on fossils of carboniferous plants (sigilaria, cordaites, calamites, etc ...). But at one point, I picked up this pretty little pebble which seemed to me to be a fossilized archosaurian egg. The slag heaps do not really respect the order of the geological layers, so it is very difficult for me to pin a year on it. I wanted to ask you if it was possible to : - confirm / deny that it is a fossilized egg - date it approximately, in view of the material that composes it (in my opinion, it should belong to the Mesozoic area, because of the colour and the fact that it was necessary to logically pass through this layer when digging, before arriving at the carboniferous veins) - identify the order, maybe the family to which he may have belonged. Please excuse-me for my bad English, Thank you in advance for your answers !
  23. Hello guys . I can i get some opinions on these two eggs They came from an old collection. So they say The first was labelled as a protoceratops 14.5cm The second one is labelled tabosaurus 17.5 cm Thanks
  24. Is this a fossil?

    Hi guys, I have found an egg-like potential fossil, but I am totally amateur to the topic yet a very intuitive person, and as I was googling how to know if it really is a fossil or not I have stumbled upon this forum and thought to start a thread. Please help me find out if this is a fossil or just a pseudo one
  25. Crocodile Egg or Sea Urchin?

    During a trip to Egypt I found this potential fossil near the city of Aswan between the banks of the Nile River and Sahara Desert. I had thought it might have been a meteor and the sand fused around the meteor due to the Intense heat. But, I tested it with a magnet but there was absolutely no attraction. Therefore, I thought it might be a fossil given that I read about many fossils being discovered in the Sahara and the composition does appear to be any rock or stone that I've ever encountered. I assumed crocodile due to the spiky and bumpy texture, along with the historic prevalence of crocodiles in that region. What do you think this is? Thanks!
