  1. I was shown the photo of a juvenile Keichousaurus from the type locality in Guizhou this morning and was asked to check its authenticity. It looks real at a glance but when I look closer, it looks suspicious. I was told that this is a man-made one. Take a look.
  2. Hello all. I just wanted to share some information about keichousaurus that I found very interesting. Crazyhen recently identified a keich specimen I have as a male. I wondered how he knew that, and did some research. As most of you probably already know, keichousaurus hui was sexually dimorphic! Males can be told apart from females by the proportions and length of the femur and humerus. Males are also often times larger. I included a diagram telling apart the male from the female. A is the female, and B is the male. Thank you all for reading, I enjoyed learning this and hope some of you do as well! https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1671/039.029.0230 https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/full/10.1098/rspb.2015.1658
  3. Keichousaurus with Jellyfish?

    On this plate is a Keichousaurus and an unknown fossil. You can see there is something at the left hand corner, does it look like a jellyfish?
  4. This is a real specimen of Keichousaurus but I don’t understand why it’s pelvic girdle is shaped like this. Any idea?
  5. Hello everyone, I purchased a Keichousaurus from our favorite auction site. It was a reputable seller and using a black light and closer inspection it's real. Plus I have the added bonus of it having been dropped and split through as it was only packed with newspaper and not market fragile, then played footy with by australia postal service... so, yeh.. its' real but it's broken. The top left has crumbled and is discolored. and it has a crack through the tail. Can anyone advise me how to adequately repair this? I have been promised a replacement specimen which will be sent soon, But I would like to salvage what I can. Thanks in advance.
  6. my collection

    Some of my favorite fossils. I start with my new nearly 30cm big keichousarus.
  7. Baby Keichousaurus

    Hi Folks, I wanted to show you a baby Keichousaurus I got for a song at an auction site. It is super tiny and I really like it. It looks pretty unprepped and is raised off the matrix by maybe a 64th of an inch. The matrix measures 2" x 2 3/4" and from nose to tail it is 2 9/16th". Hope you like it. Photos taken with Nikon D3300 with 85mm macro lens
  8. I'm looking at purchasing another Keichousaurus for preparation, and wondering what the experts' opinions are on which of these two would be easier to prep for a relative beginner like me. The first one looks entirely covered in shale, and the second seems to be a little more exposed. I have my Paasche air eraser that I was planning on using, although if someone recommends an acetic acid prep over the air abrasive for these specimens for one reason or another, I would love to hear suggestions. If the second one is more likely to be incomplete/damaged than the one under rock, I would prefer to stay away from that. But that being said, if it would truly be easier to work with the one that is already partially exposed, I am all for that!
  9. I got a soft slab of very nice Keichousaurus a a year ago. I keep it in a drawer at home, perhaps it’s too humid, I found that it’s broken into several pieces. Could anyone advise me how I could keep the soft slab without breaking? Shall I apply a layer of protective solution on the slab?
  10. Hello. I see this photo and dont understand - this is poor quality or not prepared Keichousaurus. I did not get answer seller
  11. Hi all, I recently purchased this Keichousaurus specimen off an online seller (not online) and wondered if it was genuine or not... the seller stated that there had been repair to the matrix (don’t know if that shows up in the attached images:|) The seller also said there was no repairs, painting, carving etc and that the actual fossil was 100% genuine. Inspecting it with a loupe I could see the bone matter is raised from the matrix (slightly) and that there may be teeth present on the skull, but I don’t know if they’re painted on, as that is sometimes the case. Anyway I thought I’d come here to get it checked out as I’m not very experienced with fossils and fakes yet. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated Jai.
  12. Hi all, I've been searching the internet pretty thoroughly the last few weeks, checking everywhere multiple times a day to find a low-quality keichousaurus to practice prepping on, (knowing that 95% of specimens are fabricated or heavily restored) and I think I may have found one. The price is so reasonable that I really don't care whether or not it's partially fake or restored, as it will make a decent display or even a gift if it turns out to be 100% fabricated. So I suppose I'm wondering how much of this specimen looks fabricated, and if it would even be possible to attempt an air abrasive or acid prep for this guy? How rare is it to fabricate or even partially restore a keichousaurus that's still mostly covered in shale?
  13. Just ordred a kind of "cheap" and not so well prepped and maybe enhanced keichousaurus. Would be nice to get some opinions about the condition of this fossil. I know I should ask before buying but the financial damage isnt that bad and I`m quite cuurious about this fossil. Will be pretty interesting to compare it with my other keichosaurus, which was my first ever fossile and a few times more expensive beeing from triassica.
  14. Hello. Matured before buying his first reptile. Looked at the sellers - all from China. Attracts affordability, and not the best quality still suggests that I will get a real fossil. One seller has two reptiles of about the same quality. Forum opinion are they real? The second is how is the delivery from China - Hong Kong?
  15. Hi, What do you think about this "KEICHOUSAURUS" ? The pictures of the seller are not amazing.... The pictures are not shoot by me but by the seller Thank you for help me you are the best ! sorry for my bad english i'm french
  16. KEICHOUSAURUS Fossil real or fake ?

    Hi, Happy to join your amazing community ! I have little question for you. What do you think about this "KEICHOUSAURUS" ? For me probably a problem with vertebrae but the Keichou are not simple for identification..... The pictures are not shoot by me but by the seller (in france) Thank you for help me you are the best ! sorry for my bad english i'm french
  17. Hello ! I'm new in the world of Dinosaur fossil, and would like to know if this this NOTHOSAURUS Fossile KEICHOUSAURUS Dinosaur real ? Please find some picture hereafter ! Thanks in advance for your help, Regards
  18. Keichousaurus

    Hello I am letting go my Keichousaurus fossil for trade, size it's at 9 inch and looking for dinosaur fossils or nice Megalodon tooth for it.
  19. I am not aware of any other non-fish vertebrate fossil that is easily available fully articulated (correct me if I am wrong!) Why? What is so special about the Keichousaurus from China? Articulated reptiles seem to extremely rare, and yet there appears to be a enormous exception for the Keichousaurus!
  20. Here are another couple of keichousaurus that I'm thinking of getting. Just wanted to know your opinions. Are they Authentic, enhanced in any way, or reconstructed. I apologize in advance for the pictures, it is all the seller sent me. Thanks in advance, you guys are awesome
  21. This Keichousaurus looks different than most; am thinking of buying it. What do you all think about it? Anything fake looking about it?
  22. Greetings all! I have found another Keichousaurus that looks very interesting. I do have some concerns about it, mostly the head looks almost drawn on (could just be me). Let me know what you all think!
  23. Greetings all! im tempted to pull the trigger on this keichousaurus but I am hesitant due to being inexperienced with them. I see some white specks on the bone and I haven’t seen that before so it popped up some red flags however, I am not experienced with them nor do I know enough to confidently say real or fake. On the back of the matrix it has another smaller keichousaurus. Please let me know what you all think!
  24. slate : 20.5 x 12.5 x 1.0( size in cm ) fossil: 16.0 cm x 3.0cm am looking at purchasing this item my questions are is it real? from pics its kinda hard to tell... i know iknow buy at own risk but I really value you guys observations.
  25. Hi fossil friends! I made a purchase (my first ever) and waiting for my fossil's arrival from China. I have done some level of research and spent a little above average for what I hope is a correspondingly better quality fossil, but I'd appreciate the community's expert discerning eye to tell me if it of course seems authentic, and also if it's been hopefully better prepared than average. It does seem less "flat" than some of the other over prepped ones I have seen. I'm already assuming the digits/teeth will be painted on based on what I can see and I am unsure if imperfect area around the middle of the spine is more convincing or more troubling. These are all the photos I have, but of course will be more than happy to provide others once it is in my hands. Thank you in advance!! Sam
