  1. Baby Keichousaurus

    Please take a look of the baby Keichousaurus below, its skull looks a bit different from others. Is it because the upper jaw and lower jaw were displaced and so the skull appears like that, or would this be a different species? I understand from local collectors there that this form is much rarer than the normal form. The normal forms are below:
  2. Baby Keichousaurus hui

    This is a picture of my baby Keichousaurus hui that I got on an auction site for very cheap price. The slate is 8x5cm but the reptile itself is 5cm. It is very small so to see the bones and details you need a magnifying glass. Hope you like the post.
  3. Photoshop

    So i'm not a pro at Photoshop but i decided to do a little edit of one of my Keichousaurus.
  4. Hello! Good Night to everyone of the my beloved forum! I would like to know, please, if there is a way to know if my Keichousaurus is male or female. If there is a way, how can I know the difference between the two? And to finish, please, I would like to know if my specimen is an adult or a young Keichousaurus? Thank you all for the help!
  5. This is a specimen of a Keichousaurus which is claimed to be a pregnant one. The abdomen contains some small bone like structures claiming to be bone fragments of baby Keichousaurus. The abdominal bones were not obvious, perhaps lost in the process of preparation. Are those blurry parts really baby Keichousaurus?
  6. Alright guys, so I have been wanted a keichousaurus for a while but haven't gotten one out of the fear of purchasing a fake. I am very aware that fossils on ebay from china are (the majority of the time) fake, especially keichs. The one I am looking at right now is from a ebay seller out of Hong Kong, but it looks especially roughshod, which I am hoping is a sign of authenticity. Most of the fakes I believe look very perfect and painted with dark blank paint, however this one looks in bad shape or only half prepared. I do not mind how decorative it looks, I would just like it to be a real fossil. I attached some pictures that the seller has up. Please let me know what you guys think! And thank you!!!
  7. I have the dream of one day getting a fossil keichousaurus. I've also heard that there's a ton of fakes out there. How can I be sure that I'm not spending $100 on a rock with paint?
  8. Good Night to everyone from my favorite forum! When I bought my so dreamed specimen of Keichousaurus hui, he got here at home like this: The problem is that I was foolish (naive) enough to do a polish around him, and even though I tried to go back, try to correct my mistake by rubbing his powder, he ended up looking like this: Is there any way to go back, from the surroundings of it to be what it was before, some mode to which I can correct my mistake? Any help I can have, I'm very grateful. Everlasting gratitude!
  9. Keichousaurus Fossil 1.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Keichousaurus Fossil Guizhou Xingyi China Middle Triassic (~210 million years ago) Keichousaurus is a genus of marine reptile in the pachypleurosaur family which went extinct at the close of the Triassic in the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event. The name derives from Kweichow (now Guizhou Province) in China where the first fossil specimen was discovered in 1957. They are among the most common sauropterygian fossils recovered and are often found as nearly complete, articulated skeletons, making them popular among collectors. Keichousaurus, and the pachypleurosaur family broadly, are sometimes classified within Nothosauroidea, but are otherwise listed as a separate, more primitive lineage within Sauropterygia. Keichousaurus, like all sauropterygians, was highly adapted to the aquatic environment. Individuals of this genus ranged up to 2.7 m in length, and had both long necks and long tails, with elongated, five-toed feet. The pointed head and sharp teeth in this genus also indicate that they were fish-eaters. Some recovered specimens feature an especially developed ulna suggesting they may have spent some time on land or in marshes. In addition fossil evidence suggest also a pair of fossilized pregnant marine reptiles called Keichousaurus hui, show they had a mobile pelvis to give birth to live young rather than laying eggs. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Superorder: †Sauropterygia Order: †Nothosauroidea Family: †Keichousauridae Genus: †Keichousaurus

  11. My friend was scrolling through our favorite auction site when he saw a Keichousaurus that in my opinion looks authentic(I already have a real Keichousaurus) but I just want a confirmation form the experts so please tell me what you think.
  12. I found this fossil recently, I want to know whether I can trust that it's real.
  13. Giant Keichousaurus

    This is a giant specimen of Keichousaurus, it measures a total of 46cm in length while mostly you would only see specimens measuring 20-30cm. There is something in its abdomen, would it be young Keichousaurus or remains of a fish?
  14. Two Keichousaurus

    Just sharing both of my keichousaurus, the smaller one at the top just arrived yesterday after being lost in the mail for MONTHS. I think they look great together!
  15. Hello, today I have been hunting for fossils online(of course;)) and I found this. I already have a genuine Keichousaurus fossil so this one looked a bit off, it says he repaired the tail and some toes but I want you guys to judge.
  16. Keichousaurus hui Young, 1958

    From the album Vertebrates

    Keichousaurus hui Young, 1958 Middle Triassic Zhuganpo Formation Xingyi Guizhou PRC Length 4cm
  17. Nope it's not another "Is it real post." We see many slabs posted inquiring if one of the guys is real or "fake." That auction site is full of offers of Keich plates. Has anyone ever seen another species preserved on one of these plates? I haven't. What did they eat? From their teeth I assume fish, but where are they? Perhaps they ate soft bodied inverts that did not preserve. However, one would think with that fine-grained matrix something would show up. Has anyone seen anything else preserved on one of these plates?
  18. So finally the keichousaurus that I had chosen has arrived in the mail today. I think it looks great, but i'd like to hear from you guys if it's authentic.
  19. I'm currently looking at acquiring my first Keichousaurus. Can you tell me if this looks like a good none fake/painted specimen. Also comment on the prep job and quality and i'd appreciate it! I'm itching to add one to my collection. Thank you
  20. Would love you guys thoughts on this please?
  21. Long time lurker here, figured it was time to sign up! I have been reading up on Keichousaurus out of China and how some are fakes and others are real fossils. Decided to pull the pin and pick one up, hope I made the right choice. The one toe that seems detached and the way the sternum bones are offset just seem too much work to fake. (I hope) Also the way the tail isn't perfect bone for bone Seller has a multitude of positive feedback. Please feel free to give your opinion.
  22. Hi everyone! I'm wanting to purchase my first Keichousaurus and found one online I like. I know that buying online from China is VERY risky. This seller has 100 percent positive feedback and communicates well so I am hoping it's real. Can anyone tell by these photos if this specimen appears authentic? I don't mind a little paint as long as the fossil is real.
  23. I got one straight from China recently, and it is real.... so is export of them now legal? They are now readily available.
  24. Hi guys! We just got some new Keichousaurs, but I'm afraid some of them may be fake. Their just to perfect, and what are the odds that they all died in roughly the same position? Any help would be much appreciated!
  25. Keichousaur questions crop up with regularity in this section of the forum. Perhaps those in the know could highlight the good, bad and ugly, pitfalls, legalities and what to look for when buying these gorgeous creatures. Maybe make a sticky thread if it warrants it? Just a thought.
