  1. Dinosaur egg

    Can you tell me if this is a dinosaur egg or not and if so what kind.
  2. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a therizinosaurus egg, I have very little experience with Dino eggs but I think it’s real. What do you guys think?
  3. Oviraptor egg?

    Hey guys, I saw this listed on online, the seller said she thinks this is an oviraptor egg, what do you guys think?
  4. Hi everyone, I was recently on this website to ask about a couple eggs I bought and I found the input soo helpful! Thank you all for taking the time to help amateur collectors from getting doped:) I am looking at purchasing a second set of eggs, these ones hadrosaur. The seller has stated they are from Asia, China, Henan Province and were purchased prior to 2005. They admit that the matrix was broken and the two eggs believed to be from the same nest (based on the break line) put back together. they are from Provenance: ex-Donald B. Saxman collection, Tomball, Texas, USA. It also comes with a COA from a paleontologist in a Texas. any input on authenticity, amount of repair and if this is a good piece to have it my collection would be greatly appreciated. unfortunately these are the only photos I have
  5. Fossilized reptile Egg?

    Hi, I grew up in Nebraska and somewhere or another I found this stone. We used to find lots of Mastodon Teeth, Camel teeth etc. in the Platte River Valley. And I know Nebraska was an ocean a long long time ago so occasionally we'd come across Megalodon teeth as well. I found this though. The backside is very smooth and round, it has what looks to be a well defined yolk like interior and what looks to my untrained eye to be a cross section of a small skull/cranium with beak like end. I would like to know if this is what I think it is.

  7. Hello dear members of the forum. Very interested in the question of the eggs of which species of dinosaurs are currently found? I mean fossils of course And why not found eggs suppose stegosaurs or pterosaurs? Thank you very much.
  8. One of my favorite fossil types. Dinosaur eggs come in all shapes and sizes — from an oval as small as a thumb, to a sphere as big as a basketball. These fossils are often faked by the hundreds, if not thousands, in Chinese factories (China is also the world's richest source of true dinosaur eggs). However, there are also many natural-occurring objects mistaken as dinosaur eggs such as concretions or even fortuitously-shaped rocks. Despite these hurdles, dinosaur eggs remain one of the most desirable of all fossils. NOTE: Dinosaur egg and eggshells, by their nature as an ichnofossil, are challenging for private collectors to identify. None of the IDs I provide here are acceptable on a scientific level as I lack the tools to examine the cross section slices of my eggshells. However, for the sake of documentation I will still provide accurate names and locality here to the best of my ability. First up are my Oviraptorid eggs "Common" Name: Oviraptor egg Elongatoolithus sp. 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Basin, Guangdong "Common" Name: Citipati egg Macroolithus yaotunensis 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Basin, Guangdong Length: 8.78 inches (Note: Has composited eggshells) "Common" Name: Oviraptorid(small type) Nest Elongatoolithus sp. 71 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Nanxiong Formation Guangdong
  9. Hello! I'm interested in buying a dinosaur egg. I found this egg from China. Do you think it's authentic? It's good quality? Thank you so much https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xLYvrS5sKyDwF64b48ziMeRmB5o_n-Ig/view?usp=drivesdk
  10. Can anyone advise if this egg looks fake or real, I'm thinking of purchasing it.
  11. Help Indentifying this

    I know a lot of people have posted like this but,... this really has me and a couple geologists here in TX perplexed. My dad found this in Oregon in the 1960's. It was not anywhere near a riverbank but rather, was sticking out of a sidehill. It is translucent almost like quartz, has indentations where it appears it was once soft (see close up) and I recently took it to my vet who x-rayed it and it appears to have a uniform inner density different from the exterior see x ray. Are there better x rays out there? Thanks Much
  12. 9 Dinosaur eggs nest fossils. Found in Nanxiong Formation, Jiangxi, China. Size 46 × 35cm Weight 21kg.
  13. These two eggs are from Henan Province, China. Are they genuine or not? Egg X : Photo 1-4 Egg Y: Photo 5-7
  14. Hello everyone I am Elsa from China and i live in Washington D.C. now. I bought a dinosaur eggs from one of my friend in China and it took me $1500, it's very very big and heavy, but i have never bought fossils before now. If you can help me to confirm the fossils in the pictures below are authentic i would be very thankful. And if they are real what kind of eggs are they?
  15. Egg or Mineral?

    I am a newbie- found this interesting rock on the side of a hill outside Albuquerque. It measures about 12 inches across the top, with interesting knobs on the top, and striations inside. Could anyone identify this?
  16. PLEASE CLICK LINKS BELOW TO VIEW MY IMAGES: hqttps://drive.google.com/file/d/1lMC5jRwP-kUnvA8GhfAsEO7lQnZmrkTi/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Q2KI5aRNdmFWkEYJG74tBSt0l8YYLyp2/view?usp=drivesdk
  17. There is a continuous discussion on whether eggs sold online from Malaysia sellers are real or fakes. There are some eggs which are clearly fakes and other which look real. I am not sure about the oviraptor eggs. I put some photos here from an egg that was recently auctioned. What do you think? Fake? Heavily restored? Real in a very good condition?
  18. PROBABLY NOT AN EGG?

    Hi, i own a trading post. and get rock hunters in here all the time. this was found in the zuni mountains here in western Nm. supposedly there are 4 more there. any id help is appreciated. im thinking its a concretion? best wishes.
  19. It pains me to see a resurgence of Chinese scammers on Facebook, WeChat and Instagram, as business must be good. I've been scammed by them, and so have several people I know. The fossils they advertise are incredible to the point where many of us are tempted. Here, take a look at pics taken from the walls of several confirmed-scammers. Looks amazing, doesn't it? Their price are pretty awesome too, so off you go, transferring $1000 USD to their Western Union, and.... nothing. Your money is gone forever. Here are some warning signs of the Chinese scammers. I will say it again: If these Chinese sellers refuse to use Paypal, be on guard. It doesn't matter how many likes and mutual friends they share with you, scammers can make attractive accounts and add a thousand friends just to look trustworthy. Right now, there's a scammer Facebook account that shares over 100 mutual friends with me. Someone posted on his wall complaining of a scam, and the seller removed it within a day. Check the seller's track records. Ask friends and trusted collectors if any of them have ever made successful dealings with the seller. Keichousaurus does not count! I know a case where a friend bought a single cheap Keich from someone on Instagram, and the same seller then went out to scam others with far more expensive fossils after getting the seal of approval from the first guy. Also, take note not all of them admit to being from China. I know a scammer who claims to be from USA. His fossil pictures are similar to other Chinese scammers. When my friend pretended to make a purchase, this seller gave a Chinese address for Western Union, and an Alipay account pointing to a Chinese name too. For more info, please refer to this previous thread > Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. If you have any doubts or questions, please feel free to ask others on TFF. There are many experts here who can offer you advise. If you require more info on these scammers, feel free to PM me.
  20. Is this a dinosaur egg

    This item was found in southern Alberta near, but not in Dinosaur Provincial Park. It was found in a dry rain gully. it is approximately 4” x3” x 2”
  21. So I could not help myself and just had to sate my curiosity and got one of the "real" looking eggs from our favourite auction site. I took some close up photos. It's pretty heavy. Not resin, can't burn or melt it and doesn't release any smells. Any other tests I can do or visual cues? It has a lot of grey-whitish on remaining eggshell and thinking it could be a morter they rubbed on. Ideas? Advice on tests?
  22. Hi guys, I found this egg and it looks good in my opinion. I know there isn't a lot of eggshell but the price is reasonable. There is one mayor red flag, it is from Malaysia. Probably smuggled from China Is it real? And how do you classify it, the seller states it is Therizinosaur. But as far I know, you don't classify eggs on specie level and there isn't found allot of material of the Therizinosaur aswel.
  23. This round egg-shaped object was found along with genuine dinosaur eggs at Ganzhou, Jiangxi. It is however bigger in size (diameter 18cm vs 12cm) and is dorso-ventrally depressed. Is it a dinosaur egg or concretion?
  24. I'm interested in adding a dinosaur Egg to my collection. I know these are commonly faked and would like some advise to spot a fake or a reputable dealer. Or possibly someone on here has one they are willing to let go of? Any info is much appreciated
