  1. This is an Oviraptor egg, Eastern Asia, 60% eggshell coverage. 80 million years old. It seems authentic to me, but I’m not an expert. Do you believe that this is authentic (and definitely an Oviraptor egg)? Also is this is a quality specimen? Thanks
  2. Real or fake segnosaur egg. Came with COA

    Hi is this real or fake, came with COA
  3. This egg was said to be dug up from Ganzhou. It has two bones on the matrix, do you think it’s genuine? If real, how could this happen? A dinosaur (the mother?) was buried with the egg?
  4. Egg Mold from Jordan

    hello, I found this egg mold close to my house, there were an excavation, i found it in the dirt they bulldozed away. (it wasn't broken when i first found it, it fell by mistake). from the other side it's just a normal orange-ish sedimentary stone(i don't have enough media MBs left). And, I see these orange lines in the bottom of the stone too often on other stones i want to know what they are. thank you.
  5. what is this?

    I found this in a load of gravel that came in for the drive it looked very different from the other stones and stuck out. At first I thought it was a squashed fossilized urchin but after looking at it more closely I just dont know...I have included as many photos as I could get of the outer part ... then I have some of the open side....my question is is this an urchin of some type or could it be an egg???. Mon Sep 17 00-46-22....is the bottom of the item in question.
  6. Any idea if this egg is genuine? If yes, what kind of egg is that?
  7. 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?
  8. ID egg shaped

    Hello, I'm hoping this is an egg fossil, but I can't seem to find anything like it. Supposedly it can be cut show the inside. Weighs 2.5 lbs The measuring device shows inches on top, cm on bottom Thanks
  9. Do you think these eggs from Henan, China are genuine?
  10. I wonder if you can tell whether these eggs are real or reconstructed or simply fakes? Thanks!
  11. This fossil is said to be an ostrich egg. It is from Hezheng of Gansu Province, China. Is it an ostrich egg, or a fake one?
  12. Is this egg genuine? The shell looks pretty good but the matrix looks a bit suspicious.
  13. Fossilized Egg

    I found this in the cascade mountain range in Wa State. If it’s a fossilized egg, can some one possibly identify it.
  14. dinosaur egg?

    hello everyone can anyone tell what can it be except of rock
  15. Can anyone help identify?

    Found this on Oregon river.
  16. Can someone identify this please. It was found on Oregon river bed. I believe that it maybe a fossil.
  17. Is this a rock or an egg?

    Hello all! I’m new here and extremely new to fossils! Today, we went fossil hunting in Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex, England. It’s not far from where we live and is known to be one of the best places in the UK for fossils (particularly the teeth of megalodoms). Anyhow, I found this item and wonder if it’s an egg or a rock. It is relatively small, just under 3 inches long. It feels substantial in weight, 137g, and has cracks and pours. Please see the attached photos Location information: The fossiliferous clays and sands exposed in The Naze area belong to the London Clay and Red Crag formations, and provide evidence of prehistoric life and conditions 54 million years ago (mya) and c.2.5 mya respectively. Fossils occur commonly throughout both formations attracting international interest since the 19th century.

  19. A Pregnant Tortoise? Please Help

    Hi I found this in West Central Mn, it is 9inx7in and about 3.5in thick. It appears that what crushed it left a foot print. But looks are deceiving any help would be great. thank you
  20. Ordinary rock or old egg?

    Hello! I'm from Brazil, South America, and live by a beach. I like to walk around the rocks since there are lots of different rocks, and if i start to climb, the "grassy" area is full of sedimentary rocks. I've found this stone, dropped it, it didn't broke in half like other stones do, it released some type of shell (there are 3 pieces on the photos) and showed something like a "inner stone". I know that it's probably nothing since i don't know much about rocks and fossils, but who knows. I never found other rock with this "double layer" here. Thanks for your time!
  21. Hi! I’m new here ☺️

    hi! I’m new, thanks for having me here. ☺️☺️ I went to New Mexico with my husband and did a Little Rock hounding, we went to an abandoned mine and Doug through mine tailings. We found some nice rocks, then I went up the mountain and found this, can anyone help me identify it?
  22. Fossil turtle eggs?

    Hello together, for now something different: i bought the round objects pictured below cheaply on ebay. The only information the seller gives is that he found them on his attic with a note saying "eggs" No location, age or species mentioned. If they really are fossil eggs I´d tend to say turtle, because of their shape. So, can anyone tell me if these can be real eggs? Thanks, Jan
  23. Raptor Egg?

    Hello! My son received this as a gift from his grandfather years ago, and we were told this is a raptor egg. However thats all we were told... And my son and I are wondering if it is in fact a raptor egg and would love to know as much as possible about it. I took a lot of photographs and even through a macro lens. There are lines all over it which I thought were embryo veins...but now I think they might be cracks in what used to be a shell? under the macro lens you can see what I think might be calcite formations in the cracks and possibly crystalized throughout the inside as one of the nodules looks like glassy calcite up close. I would love to get your opinion on this piece, age, quality, type, etc. This is a prize piece in my sons collection and we would really appreciate any information from the experts Thank you!!
  24. West coast Scotland find I.d.

    Hi, a friend of mine found this on the West Coast of Scotland. The ‘egg’ shaped bit is approximately the size of a grapefruit. Any ideas what it may be. Many thanks.
  25. Can someone please help me know if this "dinosaur egg" that I found in Utah is truly a dinosaur egg?
