  1. T.rex and Nano Rex teeth

    So I have been looking at some T.Rex and Nano rex teeth for sale and I came to the conclusion that they are extremely over priced some 1 inch rex teeth sell for over 400$. Why are they so expensive?
  2. Moroccan dinosaur claw

    Hello I'm not too expert in fossil but I take from '70 collection this plaque that should came from Kem Kem, the claw is 4,7 inch and the plaque 15 inch long. The matrix is very hard, near red colour like was presence of iron, formed by small grains and seems to be unbroken recently because all borders are like sand eroded, maybe this type of pieces came directly from sands of desert? I've searche on Google but I don't find nothing similar. Regards
  3. Posted are a few concerns I found wandering through the internet. These are but a few examples of the type of issues you may encounter. I send this out as a reminder if you're shopping for fossil presents of any kind. Sellers mis-identify material simply through lack of knowledge but it's up to the buyer to know what they are looking at. Don't hesitate to post interests BEFORE you buy. BUYER BEWARE when it comes to fossils of any kind. Seller wants huge money for this Saurolophus osborni lower arm from the Two Medicine Formation. Looks like a nice arm but some of his facts are incorrect. This species is not found in the Campanian of the Two Medicine Formation but the early Maastrichtian age of the Horseshoe Canyon Formation. Another key point is that it's very difficult to determine taxons from post cranial bones of Hadrosaurs especially in an fauna where multiple species exist. Nice lower arm from somewhere and from some unknown Hadrosaur. What's this seller thinking the "2 Medicine Man Formation" really attention to detail not one of his strong points. Someone tell him its the Two Medicine Formation. Maybe he watches lots of Westerns Seller describes this as Pachycephalosaurus in my opinion it's Thescelosaurus Seller is properly describing this beautiful jaw as Ornithischian but in detail description adds that it was discovered where many Pachycephalosaurus fossils were found giving one the impression it's Pachy. In my opinion it's Thescelosaurus. Teeth of these two species look similar inquire before you buy. I see a lot of these being offered or sale, nice Christmas gift. For those of you that are new to collecting the only thing real here are the crowns. Nice gift Seller is offering this Claw and Identifying it as Velociraptor from the Hell Creek Formation. It's a very worn Anzu wyliei hand claw.
  4. Moroccan dinosaur claw

    Hello I'm not too expert in fossil but I take from '70 collection this plaque that should came from Kem Kem, the claw is 4,7 inch and the plaque 15 inch long, how it is sure it came from Morocco. The matrix is very hard, near red colour like was presence of iron, formed by small grains and seems to be unbroken recently because all borders are like sand eroded, maybe this type of pieces came directly from sands of desert? I've searche on Google but I don't find nothing similar. Regards
  5. Hey guys finally got a chance to finish the first print on the tracks Im casting. In theory they are Acrocanthrosaurus tracks and there are a total of 6 tracks (may be more buried). Anywho I got the original cast done then made a negative mold. Im now making positive casts of the initial track. Im still messing with the color I want but Im pretty close
  6. Kem Kem chunkosaur ID

    These three bits came in the post today. They're a bit of a puzzle, and came without any definite ID. I wonder if anyone might have an idea what they are? I think at least two ought to be identifiable, but I've had no luck so far in trying to compare them to illustrations or photos of any dinosaur bones. Bone 1 No idea what this is, but hopefully the distinctive shape will make some sort of identification possible. It was tentatively described as a piece of pelvis. Here's a very quick and dirty photogrammetry 3D scan of this bone, which might help you to get a better idea of the shape. Bone 2 - This is huge and, as you can see, still needs some prep to reveal all of the surfaces. Finally, this very flat piece of bone, which I don't hold out much hope of an ID for! It's hollow, but that's about all I can tell you. @Troodon and @LordTrilobite - hope you don't mind me tagging you as two of the most knowledgeable people on this material. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Many thanks.

  8. Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probably won't be able to put a genus or species name on each type, but perhaps assigning certain vertebrae to a morphotype might be possible. With that I encourage everyone that has any vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds to share photos of their specimens and post them here so we can use this thread as a sort of library as well as an ID thread that everyone can use to better ID their Kem Kem vertebrae. So please, share your photos! And it might help to number your specimens for easier reference. I will be updating this first post as new information arises with examples to make ID easier. Theropods Spinosaurus aegyptiacus Spinosaurus is known for it's tall neural spines, which are pretty characteristic. Unlike Sigilmassasaurus, Spinosaurus does not have the ventral triangular rough plateau on the centra Spinosaurus cervical vertebrae Spinosaurus dorsal, sacral and caudal vertebrae Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis Sigilmassasaurus is a Spinosaurid that might be closely related to Baryonyx and Suchomimus. It differs from Spinosaurus in that it has a ventral keel on many vertebrae and a triangular rough plateau on the bottom back end. A is Sigilmassasaurus, B is Baryonyx Sigilmassasaurus cervical vertebrae Sigilmassasaurus dorsal vertebrae Indeterminate Spinosaurid vertebrae Not a whole lot has been published yet, so some bones can probably not be ID'd on genus level. Spinosaurid caudal vertebrae From Paleoworld-101's collection Charcharodontosaurids Due to an old paper Sigilmassasaurus vertebrae are sometimes misidentified as Carcharodontosaurid. These vertebrae should be identified on the basis of the original description by Stromer. Carcharodontosaurid cervical vertebrae Abelisaurids examples needed Deltadromeus agilis better examples needed Sauropods Rebbachisaurus garasbae Not a whole lot is known about this titanosaur, as only a few bones have been found. Notice that the vertebrae are very extensively pneumaticised. Rebbachisaurus dorsal vertebrae Unnamed Titanosaurian mid caudal vertebra Crocodiles more examples needed Kemkemia This crocodile is only known by a single terminal caudal vertebra. Kemkemia caudal vertebra Turtles examples needed Pterosaurs Azhdarchids Azhdarchid (probably Alanqa) posterior fragment cervical vertebra Azhdarchid Mid cervical vertebra Sources Spinosaurids https://peerj.com/articles/1323/?utm_source=TrendMD&utm_campaign=PeerJ_TrendMD_1&utm_medium=TrendMD http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0144695 Sauropods Jeffrey A.

  9. Massive mystery vertebrae

    Hello everyone, I got this vertebrae in Arizona at a small fossil shop for free with another purchase, the owner said it was acrocanthosaurus but me and a few others are pretty doubting, I’d appreciate any help
  10. Big Dinosaur Bone Needs ID

    This is the last of the fossils I got from an estate. There's no information on it. I don't know where it came from. It is a good sized one, though. It is about a foot (31 cm) long.
  11. Big Dinosaur Bone Needs ID

    Here's another picture, hopefully more informative, of a bone I got from an estate. I really know nothing about it. I did know slightly the last owner and while he wasn't a paleontologist, he was an expert in old things. (Intentionally vague.) He did say it was a fossil of some sort though he didn't know what kind. This is a continuation of a topic I started yesterday. I don't know how everybody but me can put in more than one photograph in this forum. I've got my camera formatted so that it takes hugely pixelated photographs and I still can't fit two pictures in this forum. Beware: I've got another topic (same topic) following just so I can get a third picture in.
  12. Hi there, I am looking for accurate replicas of actual dinosaur fossils: claws, teeth, skulls, skeletons, etc. I have seen several different resin replicas floating around eBay and Amazon, etc. but I am not looking for toys or other enhanced replicas or cheap models. I am looking for actual casts of real specimens, something worthy of a museum (maybe not museum price though?). I am especially interested in claws and skulls, both for reference material and display. Something durable too, so no ceramic, glass, etc. Does anyone know of a reputable site for this? Also, if you have any cool replicas, I would love to see them. Post pictures of them here! @Troodon
  13. Dinosaur Vertebrae?

    Hi, is the specimen shown in the photos a fossil vertebral bone of a dinosaur or whale? The fossil is from Madagascar. Thanks.
  14. What is this?

    So I have posted some of the amazing petrified bones I have found from a special excavation site. I do not know what dinosaur it is, but it is huge. These were found off of a riverbank, in Edmonton Alberta and I have hundreds from the same site. I believe one picture is of a horn? Maybe another is vertebrate from a back? Any input please. Here is 2 more
  15. I am new to this so excuse my lack of terminology. I am looking for help identifying what this is. I picked it up next to a excavation sight that I have pulled hundreds of bones from. I have also found many primitive stone tools in the same location. I found what appeared to be a primitive tool. Upon closer examination I have discovered the top half covered in a leather like impression. I am not certain that this is a tool, or a bone but I am under the assumption that this is a impression of skin on this object. Any information will be helpful. I will be posting pictures of the amazing bones I have collected in hopes of identifying what dinosaur I have. This was collected in the north Saskatchewan river, just off of the shore.
  16. Dinosaur Eggs from China

    Are these dinosaur eggs or rocks? They were found during a road works in China.
  17. Help Identifying

  18. Mysterious dinosaur vertebra

    I saw this vert online and liked it so bought it. The seller described it as Dinosaur partial vertebra, ?Iguanodon, from Wealden of Sussex, UK (Early Cretaceous) Does anyone have any ideas what it is, or is the description correct since he was unsure? Thank you
  19. Possible fossil near Moab

    I found this which looks like a fossil to me just south east of Moab UT. I debated with my friend about if it was a fossil or not so I thought I would post it here and see what everybody thinks.
  20. I found this online for sale and I haven't seen anything like this. Does anyone know what type of dinosaur this is or if it is even real. It makes me suspicious what with all of the posts I've seen about fakes. It measures about 9 inches. The seller does say that the rock has been repaired.
  21. Baryonyx Tooth?

    I picked this tooth up recently and wanted to get the forum's input on the ID. It was Identified as Baryonyx. The tooth measures exactly 1cm in length and is from Wealden, Sussex. I have attached pictures below. Thank you
  22. This is my first time posting on this site. I have the opportunity to purchase a potential Dromaeosaur type dinosaur fossil from the Yixian Formation of China. I know there are laws about exporting these types of fossils but the dealer assures me it has been in his possession for a long time. Also, I am willing to take the risk to own an incredible piece of history like this. However, I am not sure if the fossil is real. Based on what I have seen and read the fossil looks like the real deal but would like some other people's advice about it. It is described as a Dromaeosaur type dinosaur which is what the skeleton looks like but would like anyone else's opinion on whether it is authentic or not. Thanks for you help! -Ryan
  23. Glue removal on dino bones

    A few weeks ago I picked up a few Edmontosaurus ribs and two fibia. Was working on getting a bunch of trilobites prepped, but finally getting around to starting on them. They all look like they have been covered in elmer's glue, guessing as a field consolident. I have some acetone I was thinking of using to remove the glue, and then I had planned on using some Paraloid B-72 to reconsolidate the bones. I am concerned about whether the bones will all fall apart if I do an acetone soak, especially if some of the smaller pieces will soak up the liquid and disintegrate. Not sure the safest way to do it, so I am starting with one of the more solid looking ones. Any suggestions? So far I have just been scribing off the matrix and some glue chunks with an Aro until I get close to the bone.
  24. Femur?

    Hi Fossil Forum - I found this object which I think is a bone near the State Line campground in the Vermillion Cliffs area of Arizona/Utah. It measures approximately 3" in radius. Is it a bone?
  25. I saw those fossils online,i wonder are the real onces or is it a replica...
