So I had been browsing for some new fossils, and stumbled over a nice Moroccan fossil on a seemingly american website. And they're selling this (almost fantastic) fossil, of a part of a skull, allegedly from either a Carcharodontosaurus or a Deltadromeus (Most likely not a delta). But is it legit?
This is not my normal kind of hunt, but during the several weeks of flooding rains in Texas and the fact that I have been traveling a lot with my job, I decided it was time to add to my collection some items that I can't find locally. I decided to hunt eBay, but with the purpose of finding megs, hemis, makos and anything else I could find. I set a budget of $50 (not including shipping, though many had free shipping and I combined shipping on two). I have seen Meg's in Rock shops etc that go for much more than my entire budget for one broken not so nice specimen. I will be honest, quantity was part of the hunt and I was looking for bargains. I figured for the price of a tank of gas this would be a good challenge. Below are my "finds". 5 megs, 12 hemis, 1 mako, and a sand tiger (won for $.75 including shipping) Total cost $51.93, a little over budget but under the price of a tank of gas for a trip. Let me know how I did? As always, thanks for looking.
