  1. Hello . I got this egg . Is this a real one ? Its not the best missing lots of shell but looks ok and the price was good. The underside has a bit more shell on it. Its about 11 cm in size So now im hoping ist a good one Thanks
  2. What do I have here

    This egg was handed down to me by a relative who recently passed all I was told of this specimen was that it was found in riverside California
  3. This is an egg from Jiangxi. It looks genuine to me, what do you think? And how about the shell coverage and condition of the egg?
  4. Hello all! my wife has ordered my early Xmas present. What should I be looking for, in authenticity? I watched the pawn stars episode with the elepahnt bird egg lol and it appears to have the elongated marks they talked about. 12" in height....here are a couple photos! Thanks for the input!
  5. Pareidolia

    ok, it LOOKS to ME like there is a small dinosaur in the mouth of a larger one.. maybe an egg, idk, need help or do i "need help" lol
  6. hatching egg

  7. Embryo Fossil

    Greetings Fossil Forum members..I am looking for a positive Identification on this specimen, which was found on private property in New Mexico, near the town of Edgewood..Appears to be cast/mold of the contents inside an embryonic egg...I have circled in red highlighter what I believe to be the enlongated, oversized head of this unidentified creature, thought (by me) to be the unborn offspring of an unidentified type of smaller sized plant eating dinosaur, or Sauropod...
  8. Hello, I am new on forum, my name is Gregory. I have a few mammal fossils on my collection and was looking at dino eggs (I know nothing about them). I visited a few of your topics talking about them. I saw one on online and was wondering if this is a real one or a faked one. size : 16 cm X 7 cm.
  9. Two eggs--if someone can take a look and let me know what you think, that would be great. They are Hadrosaur eggs from China. From the Nanxiong Formation in Guangdong Province. Seller says no repairs or restoration. And adds that the first egg is more complete than the 2nd. Egg 1: 10cm x 6CM Egg 2: 11cm x 7 cm Now, does the slight difference in size mean they could be from different species, or can dino eggs from same species sometimes be slightly smaller? Or could the size difference just be due to fossilisation--one getting a bit more squashed and elongated than the other? Now, with these--I assume the brown stuff is sand and matrix covering the shell---that wouldn't be a cause for concern and be hiding something shady?
  10. Dynasaur egg?

    Isle of Wight is these fossil egg?
  11. Is This An Egg?

    Hello! I am not a serious fossil collector, but I am always on the lookout for fossils when I am around exposed rock. I was hoping the members of this site could tell me if they thought this rock was a fossilized egg. I was struck by its shape and its texture. I photographed it in the Grand Canyon on the trail between Phantom Ranch and Cottonwood Campground. It measures about 5 inches squared. Thank you for your thoughts!
  12. Egg, Coprolite, or Neat Rock?

    Found slightly north of Columbia, SC in the middle of the state in a creek. Caught my eye because of the inside, but the outside seems to have some sort of non-natural looking inclusions. If you’re able, zoom in on the exterior to see what I mean. Any help is appreciated! Totally understand this could just be a rock but it seems too odd.
  13. This clutch is from Jiangxi of China. It looks genuine to me but I would like to have your views, and also if the shells are prone to be falling off.
  14. Unfortunaterly, there's not much information--the seller doesn't usually deal with dinosaur fossils and has had it instorage for over a decade, so the only info available is that it's a Hadrosaur egg, from China and cretaceous with shell loss to one side. No more specific as to location/formation. Length = 17.5 cm Weight = 4.3 kg So, what do people think about it? Now, I was wondering, could the base be hiding some damage/a hole? The base looks a bit off to me, like it's been added---is it a common bit of fakery to make a partial egg look complete by applying a base to them and could that be the case here? Thanks for any help and opinions.
  15. Are these three eggs genuine? With full shell coverage?
  16. Please ID

    Hello. My grandmother found this probably in the 1920’s. I have conflicting information. Some say is dinosaur egg, some say sedimentary geode. I must admit it looks nothing like the other geodes she and i collected together but perhaps it is. Thought i could get your opinions on this. Probably found in central texas although she never said where she got it. Thank you for your help. I can take better photos if these not good enough. Just let me know. There are no crystals inside.
  17. Egg or Rock?

    My father lives in SE MN, south of Rochester. He lives on a farm on top of a hill and has been doing a lot of topo work. In doing so, he has discovered that almost every rock he picks up has what appears to be seashells and fossilized plants in them. His research led him to conclude that the fossils are in the range of 400 million years old. The other day he was walking his land and saw what he thought was a potato sticking out of the ground. He picked it up and was puzzled. It feels hard like a rock, is smooth, and most shockingly it glows when light is applied to it. Is this an egg of some sort?
  18. Dinosaur egg with embryo?

    This egg is from Jiangxi, China. There are white deposits inside the egg. Are these bone fragments of an embryo?
  19. Hi i came across this Egg label as oviraptor egg from China look quite real to me( but not quite sure tho) what do you think about this? thank in advance!
  20. Egg ???

  21. ...an egg or a simple rock

    Hi, Found something resembling an egg in a field. The area is Jurassic inferior/Triassic. It's not the best pictures but if you aren't sure i can take more in the morning. Can you identify it for me?
  22. I hate to do it, but.... egg?

    I’m sure it’s not, but I’m not sure enough not to ask. I read the “is this an egg” post and am still not sure. There’s just a few pieces of the superficial layer left. It’s textured and has a thin outer layer: so, is it an egg? found Judith river formation along the milk river in Montana. thanks for the help
  23. Egg? Possibly?

    I found this along a creek here in Southeast Missouri. It looks like a fossilized egg. What do you think? I searched the site for egg with no results.
  24. Petrified find

    Hello and good evening everyone. I have a rather large curiosity. length is 25” X 14 1/2” X 6” estimated weight is 125 too 150 lbs found in Rogers Arkansas around Beaver Lake in or around 2012. I purchased this as a conversation piece to go in my waterfall that I am putting in my back yard and was very intrigued by it when I purchased it from an old friend. I’ve been told it is a dinosaur egg also have been told it is a Turtle? If it is a Turtle I cannot find where any of the openings would have been, head, legs or tail opening or a seam where it would have closed up? Hope you enjoy this, it’s very intriguing.
  25. Fossil? Egg?

    I’m new to the whole artifact and fossil hunting and actually forum posting! I would like to get opinions on this following find. It was found in a creek in SE Missouri. And any pointers on hunting and identifying would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
