  1. Hello friends, I want to know if this specimen is real. It seems original to me. Thank you.
  2. Hello Can you also Help me and Can see if This one is genue. It would be a big Help because i am not sure about it.
  3. Hi guys, Recently I saw a Keichousaurus fossil at the bidding site. It is suspiciously cheap, the seller does not describe the condition of the specimen very clearly, except claiming it to be "authentic." Needless to say, it is already raising a lot of red flags. I am no expert in fossils. I just started collecting 2 months ago. I read some articles on TFF and know that Keichousaurus is one of the most commmonly fabricated. However, from the picture provided by the seller, it looks to me, that it could be at least partially authentic. The tail looks fake, but that head and neck looks ok to me. The body though, i couldnt tell. The color is too dark, it could be paint? May be some part of it is real under the paint? I think it has a very high chance to be a fake, but I dont know for sure. I am hoping that maybe someone can point to me, which part of it is fake.. Or real if there is any. Thanks
  4. Hi all, please be careful whenever you purchase Chinese vertebrate fossils or dinosaur eggs, especially turtles and birds. While some of these may look laughably fake, a search on purchase history reveals that these fossils have been sold over and over again. No prize for guessing which auction site these fossils were sold. I notice three devious techniques used by these sellers: 1) Issuing a certificate, claiming it's been examined by experts etc - Certs mean nothing, unless they are provided by actual museums 2) Selling some real fossils - I've been monitoring this seller's listings for years. Every now and then, a real one shows up. His victims may have bought something genuine from him before, and assumed all his listings are good. 3) Selling replicas alongside his fake fossils - By outright proclaiming some of his listings as replicas, this seller creates the impression that he is a responsible seller who would inform people about the true nature of their purchases. "The best lies have an element of truth" Remember, if you aren't absolutely sure of your purchase, post some pics here on TFF. We have experts who would help you if they can. Also, if you need more info about this listings or the seller, feel free to PM me.
  5. Manchurochelys liaoxiensis from Liaoning province. These turtles have shown up in the forum before, some with the conclusion they are real, some not. Here is an incredible display of turtles with fish! However, I am highly skeptical despite coming from a reputable source. They seem to have a halo of color all the way around them. On extreme angles there are some parts where the shell is not attached to the matrix. Even the fish are "on" the matrix, not in it. It is not resin, as I have exposed many parts to a soldering iron. The crack on that back seems to run under, not through, the turtles but is visible on the front where the turtles are not. It even runs under, not through, a limb. To me, a best case scenario is that these "real" fossils were placed onto a stone slab, but that seems like a lot of unnecessary work. If the turtles are casts that are put onto the matrix, is there an easy way to tell? Would x-ray be useful as the turtle and the matrix are likely different densities if the turtles were added on? And can anyone recognize the fish? If they are millions of years apart, that might answer the question. but where are the heads of the fish? Llastly, for a fascinating read on fakes, check this out: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/265208436_Fossil_fakes_and_their_recognition This is not the site of a seller, so it should not break the rules of this forum...if I am not mistaken. Thanks for your thoughts!
  6. Hello everyone, It's been a while since I've started a topic on the forum; but over time, it has occurred to me how many of our forum members have spectacular specimens of Chinese trilobites. I hope to start this thread to showcase and celebrate the amazing trilobite fossils that come from China, contributed by no other than our very own. Chinese trilobites have been relatively underlaid in the trilobite collection world by the Moroccan material and Russian material. But with a jaw-dropping diversity and rarity of trilobites, China's trilobites may make up for the incredible 3-D preservation seen in Moroccan Devonian trilobites and Russian Ordovician trilobites. China's Cambrian trilobites are quite famous and popular, ranging from the god-status trilobites of the Kushan formation in Shandong, to the unique trilobites of the Sandu formation from Guangxi, to the ancient trilobites of the Chengjiang and Guanshan fauna in Yunnan... the list goes on. Perhaps we may even start to hear Chinese Cambrian, Russian Ordovician, American Silurian and Moroccan Devonian in the future amongst trilobite collectors! Regardless, I hope the collectors of the forum would be willing to share their fossils to us, no matter how they are. The more the merrier!
  7. Does anyone have any good articles to reference for identifying fake Chinese dinosaur eggs, outside of the fossil fourm? Thank you all!
  8. Hello! Good evening for all my big family here in TFF ! I'm thinking of buying this fossil jaw from Hipparion. But please, I would like to ask some questions before my purchase: 01) Can this jaw fragment even be a real fossil or is it a modern horse jaw with mud and cement? 02) Is it an upper or lower jaw? 03) Anyone know what species of Hypariodon exactly belongs this jaw? 04) According to the seller (Yes, the seller is Chinese), this jaw was discovered in China ... Anyone know in which locality may have been discovered? Well, at least in my opinion, it's a good chunk of the upper jaw: I thank you all for your help! @Crazyhen
  9. Hi fossil friends! I made a purchase (my first ever) and waiting for my fossil's arrival from China. I have done some level of research and spent a little above average for what I hope is a correspondingly better quality fossil, but I'd appreciate the community's expert discerning eye to tell me if it of course seems authentic, and also if it's been hopefully better prepared than average. It does seem less "flat" than some of the other over prepped ones I have seen. I'm already assuming the digits/teeth will be painted on based on what I can see and I am unsure if imperfect area around the middle of the spine is more convincing or more troubling. These are all the photos I have, but of course will be more than happy to provide others once it is in my hands. Thank you in advance!! Sam
  10. Spot the Vetulicola?

    There is a Vetulicola (partial) somewhere on this piece, I have been looking at it for awhile but I can't really spot where it is on here, anyone more familiar with Chengjiang fossils able to spot it or id for sure as vetulicola?
  11. Hello, I recently found a guy who has offered to sell me this complete Ichthyosaurus and a Keichousaurus and I was wondering if you guys see any Red Flags. It’s from China but he didn’t specify. I don’t see anything too obvious but I wanted some of your guys’s thoughts. Regards, indominus rex
  12. Monster Icthyosaurus!

    Check out this unidentified species of Chinese ichthyosaurus. Yup, that's a real man standing behind it. Not photoshopped.
  13. Sorry about posting so many fossils at once. Please help me see if what types of fossils these are and are they real.

  15. First up, this is not mine. It belongs to a collector in China who has an astonishing variety of fossils. He recently sent me pics of this fossil skeleton of his which has left him stumped. Unfortunately he's unable to provide much info to me, other than "It is from China", "It is much smaller than a person", and "It has been suggested by other Chinese paleontologist that it may be a young troodon or oviraptorid". However, he believes it is not conclusive, and this might instead be a reptile rather than a dinosaur. Apologies for small pics.
  16. Hi all, I am interested in acquiring this crinoid from an old shop in Chinatown. The store owner told me he brought it out of China decades ago but does not know the ID. My own amateur guess is Traumatocrinus but can anyone else give some insight on this? Below are a few pictures of the specimen, which measures about 1 ft(12") in length. I will detail the Chinese dragonfly in the next post. Edit: forgot about the measurements!
