  1. This interesting specimen of Keichousaurus was just dug up from Xingyi of Guizhou. Look, it got two heads! I think the other head belongs to another Keichousaurus with body still buried in the matrix or it is the left over skull of another individual. What do you think?
  2. Hello. I'm considering this Keichousaurus hui. I think the bones look original, the toes all have the right shape. My main area of concern is the skull because it looks a little fishy. Any help is appreciated!
  3. Not interested in buying ... it’s just to educate myself. Real or fake? I think it looks pretty questionable, but maybe I’m wrong. Not really sure here. .
  4. It pains me to see a resurgence of Chinese scammers on Facebook, WeChat and Instagram, as business must be good. I've been scammed by them, and so have several people I know. The fossils they advertise are incredible to the point where many of us are tempted. Here, take a look at pics taken from the walls of several confirmed-scammers. Looks amazing, doesn't it? Their price are pretty awesome too, so off you go, transferring $1000 USD to their Western Union, and.... nothing. Your money is gone forever. Here are some warning signs of the Chinese scammers. I will say it again: If these Chinese sellers refuse to use Paypal, be on guard. It doesn't matter how many likes and mutual friends they share with you, scammers can make attractive accounts and add a thousand friends just to look trustworthy. Right now, there's a scammer Facebook account that shares over 100 mutual friends with me. Someone posted on his wall complaining of a scam, and the seller removed it within a day. Check the seller's track records. Ask friends and trusted collectors if any of them have ever made successful dealings with the seller. Keichousaurus does not count! I know a case where a friend bought a single cheap Keich from someone on Instagram, and the same seller then went out to scam others with far more expensive fossils after getting the seal of approval from the first guy. Also, take note not all of them admit to being from China. I know a scammer who claims to be from USA. His fossil pictures are similar to other Chinese scammers. When my friend pretended to make a purchase, this seller gave a Chinese address for Western Union, and an Alipay account pointing to a Chinese name too. For more info, please refer to this previous thread > Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. If you have any doubts or questions, please feel free to ask others on TFF. There are many experts here who can offer you advise. If you require more info on these scammers, feel free to PM me.
  5. Hi, I am mostly confident this is real, but before i spend a decent amount of money on a fossil, i want to check for confirmation that this is indeed real. The sellers haven't described any repair/restoration or any paint, and i think there is calcite veins. The fossil is 12cm long. Thanks.
  6. Keichousaurus UPDATE

    Morning guys! Weeks back I impulse bought a Keichousaurus and posted it here. Many of you guys said it was real with touch ups. Now that I’ve got it in the mail, I’m posting pics down below. I apologize if some come out blurry as my phone’s camera is awful.
  7. Morning everyone, was wondering if anyone could tell if this keich is real or fake. Matrix is 6cm by 5cm and fossil outstretched is 4.7 cm. Listed as an “unbarked layer”. Location of discovery not given but of course it is shipped from China. Please advise.
  8. This specimen of Keichousaurus is interesting. It has a crystallized crack cutting across its belly. I wonder what kind of mineral is that, is it quartz? Have anyone seen this before?
  9. Hey guys just one more and I’ll be Keich’d out for a while. Does Thisbe one look Atleast partially real? I can see some of the digits are painted but the bone detail looks halfway decent. Just wanting a second opinion.
  10. Hey guys, are these keichousaurus fossils real?
  11. I have had this Keichousaurus in my collection for a while now. I was wondering whether it's real, I really hope you guys can help. Regards, indominus rex
  12. Hey guys, I'm sure this has been asked a lot but I just bought a Keich and I'm wondering if I made a mistake. Pictures should be attached.
  13. Hi all. I have here two keichousaurus specimens and I need some help determining which one is real, or if they're both real, or if they're all fake, etc. pics 1 & 2 are from the same specimen and pic 3 is the other one.
  14. 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:
  15. 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.
  16. Photoshop

    So i'm not a pro at Photoshop but i decided to do a little edit of one of my Keichousaurus.
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. 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!
  20. 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!!!

    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.

  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
