Good Evening All, I have a question regarding online fossil purchases and how to recognize fakes. Is it safe to assume relatively inexpensive vertebrate fossils (<$500) coming out of China are counterfeits? (See attached example minus identifying information to be in keeping with forum policies) I know extinct hyenas aren't as sexy as dinosaurs or direwolves, but that's like 1-2 orders of magnitude cheaper than most carnivore skulls I've seen while internet window shopping. I also was under the impression China did not allow the export of fossils, but I am admittedly not very well versed in the world of private fossil dealings. It's sort of an academic discussion I guess (somewhat literally and figuratively). I'm a veterinary student and have recently been obsessing over canine evolution because I'm a huge dweeb. Student loans what they are these days I don't think I'll be spending what little beer money I have on canid fossils (also, strictly speaking, hyenas aren't canid fossils anyway), but I'm curious what the community thinks about listings like this. Best, RonG
