  1. Evening all, Sorry to bore everyone with yet another egg post, however I stumbled across these "hadrosaur eggs" at the local antiques market. In the dark of the guy's stall they looked very real, but I'm having second thoughts as to its authenticity. Seller had no info bar that he got it off an old man who worked in SE Asia (red flag surely) and brought back a whole bunch of stuff. Anyway, thoughts and discussion would be appreciated!
  2. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source.
