  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. Strange find

    Any thoughts?
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Is this Dino egg real ? Or just a rock?
  10. Fossil Egg?

    Can any one tell me what this fossilized egg is.
  11. Shell? Fossil? Egg?

    I can't figure out what this might be, I hope you can see it well enough. It was very hard to get good pics of the crushed side. I think it could be a crab shell, it's crushed but firm tho it seems slightly pliable and even breakable. It's not. The "mouth" seems to be more of a dent than an opening since sealed over and the perfect little circle on the top reminds me of a horseshoe crab. Some of the pics are color saturated to enhance the detail as best I could. Please, help, so curious!
  12. Hi guys, Is this a real Hadrosaur egg fossil? There are so many fakes out there so I really like your opinions. The egg is found in the Henan province in China
  13. Hi all, I have come across numerous theropod eggshells sold as "Oviraptor from Mongolia" through the years. Mostly, I pay them no heed. As I am aware, whole Oviraptor eggs from Mongolia are in fact Elongatoolithus sp. eggs from Guangdong or other parts of China. True Mongolian eggs are very rare. What about these eggshells though? My guess is that thousands of them come out of China, the same way as the eggs and egg nests. But then again, eggshells are more common, and is it that implausible for some of them to be Mongolian in origin? I label mine as being from China, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.
  14. Please take a look at these dinosaur eggs. They are said to be from Hezheng, Gansu, China. Are they genuine?
  15. Bird egg fossils? I'm a new member.

    Hello, I found these fossilized 'eggs' taped together at a pawn shop in Kalispell, Montana. I know nothing about them but they are really cool! Does anyone know what they are? The more oval one is about 2" long by 1.5" wide. The more round one is about 1-9/16" x 1-13/16". They were sliced in half when I found them. The one that looks slightly developed ha some missing 'yoke' around the center small circle but is close to fully intact. They are fascinating but I don't know much. I'm a newbie. Thank you for any help.
  16. Good morning, I was given this rock 15 years ago and I believe it is from East Texas, but that is just a guess. I have no other information. I think it is nifty, but no clue what it is. Sorry if the files are too large, I'm inept.
  17. Dinosaur Eggs from China

    Are these dinosaur eggs or rocks? They were found during a road works in China.
  18. Greetings! We found this fossilized egg on the banks of the clay cliffs in Maryland. We frequently find fossilized shark teeth, stingray jaws, whale vertebrae, and megalodon teeth on the same banks. It was a round/oval shape with a crack in the top and we proceeded to break it open (not the best idea now!). You can clearly see the yolk and egg layers. We would love any help identifying it! Thank you!
  19. egg?

    Everyone is wrong, thinking they have a dino egg. Am I? weight = 660 grams length = 3.9 inches
  20. EGG Fossil Identification

    I found this opposite my house and thought it looked like a fossilised egg? Helps appreciated thanks
  21. Egg Fossil?

    Location Cikembang Beach, Sukabumi, West Java, Indonesia. Looks like an egg in size and shape. What could this be? Thanks.
  22. seen this for sale and to me it looks genuine but i am wondering about its authenticity, its location has no red flags as is Washington (not Cincinnati) any input would be appreciated.
  23. What is this?

    A few months ago I was helped here to identify a clam fossil and now near the same area I have found this. It doesn't match any images that I have found searching. Thank you.
  24. Fossil or not?

    Found in an old railyard. I don’t know much about fossils, I just pick up cool rocks.
  25. Preparation Oviraptor Egg

    On your advice that the best method of preparation of an Oviraptor egg is Air abrasion, i bought me a sandblaster. I have also used my air scribe and bought a slightly cheaper egg for testing the method. After some time I finished the prepared of the egg. I hope you like it? Here is the unprepared egg: and after the preperation:
