  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. This Keichousaurus looks different than most; am thinking of buying it. What do you all think about it? Anything fake looking about it?
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Hello, I found this in France in an antique market 15 years ago. At that time i thought it was fake but now? extreme relief 20cm on 13cm 
  16. Hi, next month I am going to Paleotime, a fossil fair in Belgium and I am hoping to find a Keichousaurus fossil. Now I know their are lots of fakes out there (although after doing some reading on this forum most of them I came to the understanding most of them aren’t entirely faked, just enhanced, painted and composites) And I am going to be honest, I don’t really care that much if the Keichou is a little bit enhanced of painted. But I hope to find a specimen that is at least 75 % or more authentic. So I was hoping if you guys could give me some tips as to what I should look for when I examine a specimen I hope to buy, cause since I will buy it at the fair, I won’t be able to post picture here during the process. I know that these are some of the thing I already have to look for to enhance the chance of getting an authentic one · Missing bones · Broken bones · Strange or akward poses · Imperfections (fake always try to be as beautiful and perfect as possible) · Calcite cracks running through the skeleton · Looking for detailing in the skull like teeth and obvious skull fragments · Looking for paint with a magnifying glass · Taking a picture and doing a negative to see paint mischief · Looking for 3D relief on the specimen These are the things I know of the look for, but does anyone else have some tips for me on how to recognize it’s a genuine of faked piece. I will also be taking my LED Mini microscope 60x for on the phone with me for closer examination. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hi guys! I just got an epic keichousaurus fossil. Are there any tips you guys have with keeping it in shape? Is it ok for the fossil to be in the sun? Thanks! nick
  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. Against better judgement, I acquired a "keishosaurus" fossil. I trust the dealer - but not necessarily their source. I'm attaching some photos - please let me know your opinion - do you think it's a real one, "restored/painted", or a complete/near complete fake. The chip in the left forearm looks concerning to me. Any insight is appreciated.
  20. 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?
  21. 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!
  22. 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. .
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
