  1. Hi all! I'm curious if this fossil I'm thinking of getting is real or fake!
  2. Came across this piece. Its advertised as being a juvie spinosaurus jaw with some of its teeth/roots still intact. Looks shady as heck to me and even if its 'real' it looks more like those elosuchus jaw parts you might find online. What do you guys say?
  3. Hi guys I recently bought this as a replica but having seen nothing like it I’ve been wondering about it’s authenticity to me the fish seems like a decent real fossil , however the turtle seems sculpted and the flippers are all off, the rock seems Like real fossiliferous lagersatte rock With fossil remains apparent on the back what do you thinks?
  4. Hi guys was wondering if this looks authentic? What would be a fair price to sell as? Dimensions are 25cm by 15cm. Kindest regards, Jake
  5. hello everyone, a few days ago surfing the internet I came across a site of fossils from asia. scrolling through the various offers I noticed this skull, the description reported only that it belonged to an unspecified myocene carnivore. All in all the price was quite low for what seems to be the quality of the piece. To a more careful investigation it would seem a hyaenidae even if the present matrix makes identification quite difficult, however still there is something that does not convince me. the matrix seems intentionally put to cover part of the skull. What do you think about it? Even if the price is cheap it's still to high for my poor pockets, so noway I would ever buy it. However it intrigued me alot.
  6. Hey everyone, I just got this beautiful cave bear jaw and I was wondering if it is real. It was found in Romania. Three of the teeth are a bit loose from the jaw and one of them can actually be removed. The tooth that can be removed is hollow. It looks like a juvenile due to the fact that not all of the teeth have grown in yet. Do you think it’s authentic? Thanks!
  7. I’ve had this for a while, and always assumed it was real. I saw a video of someone looking at fake teeth, and they said you could tell because you could see bubbles in the tooth from if it was a mold of some sort. It’s a little over 5 inches long, and I believe it was an Atlantic Ocean find, but I don’t remember much more about where it was supposedly found. I circled the area that I thought looked the most bubble like, but I’m not really sure what to think. Any help is appreciated.
  8. Real or Fake? Crinoid

    Hello, we asked some of our friends to see if they could find us a nice fossil overseas. It was meant as a surprise for me from my parents, so we couldn't see the fossil beforehand. First of all, they say the fossil is "painted" to bring out its features, this already sounds very fishy. Secondly, the rock it is on looks like an igneous rock, I thought the fossil baring rocks where supposed to be sedimentary. They took the fossil to different stores to verify its authenticity, but few people said it looked fake. I would like to know because it was quite expensive for an ameture fossil collector, and especially for a fake! If it is real, which is doubtable, then is there any way to remove the paint?
  9. Mystery Skull

    I bought this skull at a bones and brews event. I was told it was a 35 million year old camel skull. However, i noticed thats probably not true. Do any of you guys know what this is?
  10. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me if this is legitimate or not? The seller says it's a museum quality piece, but after looking at it and the back I question. It almost sounds hollow when I knock on it. Would love any feedback, trying to build up my collection and thought this was a very nice looking fossil, but I know very little.
  11. Mystery Fossil From Rock Show

    Quite some years back my late uncle purchased the attached fossil at a gem show here locally. Too be completely honest it looks kind of fake to me... but im might just have a untrained eye. My Aunt has taken the picture. I Couldn't possibly imagine it being from around here so I'm really not sure what age it could be or what location it is from. I'll try to acquire some more photos with a scale shortly. I know its a shot in the dark but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. -Nick
  12. What kind of tooth is this?

    I found a tooth here online and it claims to be a Raptor tooth from Hell Creek. It has a classic Kem Kem color and kinda looks like a croc tooth?
  13. I saw this lebanon fish fossil (maybe Aipichtys sp?) On website, and i planning to buy this but i'm worried its head has made by man. its head looks little weired and unnatural. I never saw fish heads looks like this. Anyone knows about its right id or why it is fake?(or why it is natural one) Thanks. Sorry for bad quality pictures...
  14. Hey everyone, I saw this fossil being sold and I think I am going to buy it, but I don’t know if it’s real or fake. It is two rooted Mosasaur teeth with extra jaws and bones (I contacted the seller, who told me they were also probably Mosasaur bones). It was found in Phosphate Deposits, in Khourigba, Morocco. Please help!
  15. This mastodon tooth was apparently found in Florida in 2016. The blackish spots look like they are crystals/minerals that have replaced part of the tooth. Also, on the backside, it appears that there is plaster from when it was wrapped up. I still don’t know if it is real or fake though. Please help! Thanks!
  16. These triceratops teeth looked polished, and there is two white dots on the bigger one that I think is a burn from preparing the tooth. It would be great help if someone could tell me if they are real or fake. Thanks so much!
  17. Hello. Good evening to everyone from my favorite Forum! Unfortunately I do not have the slightest intimacy with coral fossils, so I do not know if they are fake or whether they are true, whether they are common or whether they are rare. Precisely because of my complete ignorance of the matter, I have resolved, please, to ask for your help. So I basically have 2 questions: 01 - Are they real? 02 - The seller describes as fossil corals of the species PLASCOMILLIA VIDALI, from the Late Cretaceous (SANTONIENSE), discovered in Lerida, Spain, aged 83 to 87 million years. Is this information correct? Are these 3 corals: Coral - 1 Coral - 2 Coral - 3 @Tidgy's Dad
  18. Hi guys! Is this legit? It looks epic... maybe too epic to be real?! Any advice would be much appreciated from a newb fossil enthusiast. Cheers
  19. I recently purchased this 3.5 inch spinosaurus tooth online, but have some concerns it may be painted. I was told by the previous owner that when checked under microscope, it appeared to have some glue in the cracks, possibly just to keep them from spreading but did not appear to have any full break repairs. However to me, the colour looks too consistent, and the colour leaks into the center on top as though painted. Thoughts?
  20. Fossil Fish of Madagascar

    Hello! Good night to everyone from my favorite forum! I would like to know, please, if this beautiful fossil fish of Madagascar is real, but I believe it is, and of what species it is. Does anyone know in which formation, or region of Madagascar in which it was discovered? I'm grateful for all the help! My friend please: @oilshale
  21. What are These Bones?

    So a while back I was given these fossils along with a Spinosaurus tooth. He said that they were all from the same area and that they were both vertebrae. I can see the touch up on the larger one obviously but it still seems real because of the spongy meterial from the one view. I was just wondering if you could ID these for me I’m pretty new to the fossil scene. Thanks.
  22. Hi, I have two Spinosaurus teeth, both said to be from Khouribga Morocco but bought from different sellers. Both look convincingly real to me but I'm an absolute novice. One of the two teeth (but not the other) is becoming hollow at the non-pointy end due to the sandy contents crumbling. Gently tapping removes more. The reddish outer enamel surface seems fine though. So is that a bad thing perhaps indicating a fake? And if it's normal and OK is there an 'acceptable' way of preventing the problem? Thanks, Tim
  23. Keichosaur

    Hello, my friend has given me this Keichosaur he has convinced himself is fake. Is it? I know this fossil has quite the reputation. He purchased it from a store in Tennessee.
  24. So I found this skull and I'd love to maybe get something like this in the future, I could possibly do prep work to make it look better. But is it real? I can't tell. All I know about it is it's from morocco.
  25. Hi all, Was looking through some fossils online and came across this one. It was in the "Exclusive fossils" section; so I got really surprised seeing this "pebble" in there. The seller claims it is the fossil skull of a Hybodus shark. Now to me this is very weird. As we all know, sharks have a cartilaginous body; so their skeleton doesn't fossilize easily. That's why I am doubtful about the skull of this shark being so well preserved, with the brain and all. Plus, to me this just looks like a funny-shaped pebble. The only thing that makes it more believable for me are the "teeth" in the last closeup photo. I might be completely wrong on my suspicion, and this might indeed be an exceptional incredible piece. But then shouldn't it be more at home in a museum??? What do you guys think? Best regards, Max
