    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Egg like concretion from Ganzhou

    These round objects are found in Ganzhou with dinosaur eggs. As far as I understand, they’re not Man-made. They are very round and of the same size. What are they? Eggs or concretion?
  4. Is this egg genuine? Full shell?
  5. Could it be a recent bird egg fossilized?

    So I was on a hunt for Patoskeys over on lake Huron and I came across this very odd find. It looks to have the exact qualities of an egg. I have been searching around to find others like it and have come up empty. Any help?
  6. Is this a dinosaur egg or concretion? It is from Ganzhou, Jiangxi of China. If it is a dinosaur egg, does it have shell?
  7. 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?
  8. Does this Therizinosaur egg on favorite auction site look real?
  9. Eggshell fragments

    Hello all! I just bought this batch of over 30 eggshell fragments for 1€. A decent deal The seller claims it is from a dinosaur and a relative to Titanosaur. Can somebody confirm this info or not? Thanks a lot. This is the only picture I have... I am not too sure if the location (Marseille,France) he put in the description is where the fragments were found or where he is shipping the fossils from... likely the second option but I am not sure. Thank you for the help! Regards
  10. Dino Egg

    Ladies and gents, I have a dino egg I need some help with. Since file size is limited to 2.9 ill have to post the other picture in the comments. Thanks, Fossilized Corgi
  11. Hello good evening to all A great friend of mine I've known for many years has this egg in her collection. Unfortunately I only have this photo, but even so, I believe that this photo is sufficient, and it is quite enlightening: In my opinion is a compound, which used real shells. What do you think? Supposedly, this should be an egg of Hypselosaurus discovered in France... @-Andy- @HamptonsDoc @Troodon
  12. ID please of egg looking rock

    Found this today in a dried up creek a few shovels down on my girlfriends property in Wollombi NSW. Measures 8cms long & fragile. Any ideas if it’s more than just a rock, thanks in advance
  13. Easter eggs

    Hello, For Easter' Monday I decided to hunt eggs, not in chocolate but in stone ! I got a nice spring weather in a beautiful landscape: In these marls dated from Eocene, we can find eggshells of Gastornis (giant bird https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gastornis ) on the ground, here together with a gastrolithe: And a picture of a rare collapsed egg in the rock. It was so fragile that I could only take the shells without the matrix. A picture of the clean shells will come soon !
  14. Hatching a Dino egg.

    We'll guys, I finally got an egg to hatch. Through gentle tender care, it happened. The world may never be the same again! I while back I got some eggs from one of our members in the UK. I wont mention his name but he has the initials John Brewer. The two eggs were, I suspect unfertilized and thus never managed to hatch. He sent me another one recently that had all the makings of a good specimen. Good shape, correct markings, and a certificate of authenticity, it just felt right. Here is a shot of it as it looked when it arrived. After a nice long soaking in my special hatching fluid, It began to break out of its shell and shock the World. A REAL LIVE DINOSAUR!!!! Get ready for Jurassic Park VI: The Revenge in vivid 3D. There's a whole heap of coprolite comin' your way!!!!
  15. Found a suspected egg fossil

    I discovered what looks like a fossilized egg today in northern Colorado. I found the piece in pile of landscape rock, filtered to 2in diameter. If anyone can provide me with information it would be much appreciated.
  16. Happy Easter

    It's probably already been thought of, but I thought it would cool to hide fossils for the kids.
  17. Seems there are quite a few threads asking if the specimen is an egg or not. So I have one in question. It this real?
  18. Fossil Egg??

    Going through my river rocks from the Lower Hunter Valley, Australia. I found this one 3/4 of a toothbrush in length approx 15cm. It looked different to all the others so I cracked it open into 3 large sections thinking it would have crystallisation inside only. Have not cleaned it or done any work on it at all as yet, opinions very appreciated if it's anything worth further work, Many Thanks from DownUnder
  19. Hi all! I'm glad to find this forum! I've had this rock since I was little --I always thought it was bitten by a dinosaur, so I was just wondering if anybody might be able to tell if it's just a rock? Thanks!
  20. Good evening to all! Anyone who wants to acquire a legitimate fossilized Deinonychus egg, just have a look at our favorite auction site. Bearing in mind that at this price, in addition to the egg, the embryo is already included, so the price is a real bargain! The only problem is that I am a complete ignorant in this matter, so unfortunately I do not know how to explain this right for you, but in the advertisement, the seller explains everything in its smallest detail! I know that I run the serious risk of all of you taking this piece from me before I can even buy it, but I think I'll risk it anyway, after all I doubt you guys have US $95,00 left to make this investment that will be worth for one life!
  21. Strange find

    Any thoughts?
  22. Glue for Egg Shell

    Hi Everyone, I just purchased multiple pieces of dino egg shell that all come from a partial single egg the recently shattered and want to try to glue it back together. There is no matrix and the egg is hollow. I ordered some PaleoBond PB100X Structural Adhesive, is that all I need? Any advice? I've never prepped or reconstructed anything before and figured this may be a fun project!
  23. Gone are the days when high quality dino eggs were freely sold at public auctions. I recently borrowed some catelogues from Bonhams, IM Chait and Heritage Auction that were 10-20 years old and was amazed by what was once available for sale! Here are a few eggsamples of pictures I took from the catelogues. Therizinosar Eggs with embryo exposed. Two examples of oviraptor nests with the remains of their mother guarding her young from whatever disaster took all of their lives. A spectacular nest labeled Troodon formosus. A saltasaurus egg, one of the most prized dino eggs to collectors. Large section of an oviraptor nest. A nice example of a hadrosaur nest.
  24. Big and small dinosaur eggs

    This clutch of dinosaur eggs is from Ganzhou of China. Among the normal sized eggs, there is a much smaller egg. Was it part of the same clutch (like leatherback has both normal sized eggs and small unfertilized eggs), or it belonged to another animal?
  25. Is this Dino egg real ? Or just a rock?
