  1. I am new and I need your oppinion about this Spinosaurus tooth:
  2. Hello I am trying to figure out if this specimen is real or if parts of it are composites. I do know that a protective coating has been put on to protect it, and that it had to be glued together once, but I am not sure if the digits on the hands are real or if the ribs are real. Thanks!
  3. Hiya bought this a couple days ago from a fossil and gem store wanted to know if it was legit
  4. I purchased this Mosasaur tooth from a local fossil and crystal shop, I assume that the tooth is real but Im nut sure if the root is real or its just set for display.
  5. Hi everyone my girlfriend bought me a tooth off the internet and my brother was playing around with it and broke it was wondering if it was real or not so I knew to repair it or not with glue can show the outside if needed to thanks in advance for anyone that can help
  6. Hello and I hope everyone is doing well, I have purchased a trilobite and a fish fossil a while back. After finding this forum, I felt like I should post what I purchased here for a peace of mind ( I'm new here ) Can someone give their opinions on whether these two are fake/real ? Thanks in advance
  7. Hi, this tooth was given to me as a gift, but I’m not sure If it’s real or not? It is 1 3/4 inches long and one inch wide.
  8. Hi, I was wondering if these teeth are real? I’m pretty sure they are real, just want to make sure.
  9. Hi guys I recently purchased this Megalodon tooth and I'm pretty sure it's real but I wanna know what you guys think.
  10. Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to enlarge my fossil collection with a mosasaurus skull. However I am still not sure if this one is real or not. The teeth seem real but the skull make me doubt... can someone help me ? best regards Thomas
  11. Hello, I was wondering if this spinosaurus tooth is a fake. I got it awhile ago, it looked painted so I washed it off and this is what it looks like.
  12. My great aunt gave this to me years ago, and I would like to know if it is real. I know there are tons of fakes, and would like to see if mine is real.
  13. Hey there! I am relatively new to fossil collecting and hope to go on to do some hunting etc, but anyways! I am considering purchasing this keichousaurus hui attached and wondered if it is a real or a fake? As I know you need to be extremely careful when buying one of these due to the hight amount of fakes being produced. Thanks!
  14. Hello everyone im new here , really exited to find this forum for discussion and information about fossils. Now to my problem i bought this trilobite 28cm (''cambropallas telesto'' if im not mistaken) from a local store from what they said to me this was imported from UK, when i got a closer look seemed to me that most of the ridges of the trilobite are engraved man-made by some kind of clay. So my question is any part of it real? I would have posted more pics but the files are too big. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi all. Is this Keichousaurus real or fake? This product is very cost-effective,but I have to admit there are dubious areas like the head and too-perfect tail I just want a confirmation form the experts Thanks My English isn't very good, please don't mind
  16. I found this Dilophosaurus tooth for sale online and am suspicous of its authenticity. The problem is I don't know a lot (or anything) about dinosaur teeth and how one would go about spotting a cast. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
  17. I found this upper canine from a Smilodon for sale online. The number of surface imperfections lead me to believe the tooth is authentic though it could be a particularly well done cast. The seller has a couple other Smilodon fossils both of which seem legitimate. However the fossil is coming from China and I hear falsified fossils are very common in China. I would greatly appreciate another opinion thanks.
  18. I found this trilo for sale online, seller claims the species is Parahomalontus however I cannot find much info on this species. Can anyone help me ID this trilo and tell whether or not it is fake? Thanks.
  19. Hello, I am brand new at fossil collecting and am trying to get specimens for my science class (I’m a high school science teacher). I bought a few fossils pretty cheap not knowing how prevalent fakes are. I think some are fake, partially faked, or enhanced. I don’t want to misinform my students in what is real and what isn’t so I’d love some help! (Fakes aren’t the worst thing for me since we can discuss the use of models in class, I just need to know what is real or fake). Here is my first specimen: a trilobite of unknown origin (I havnt seen one like it online which is why I think it is fake). Thanks!
  20. Can anyone advise if this egg looks fake or real, I'm thinking of purchasing it.
  21. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me if this is legitimate or not? The seller says it's a museum quality piece, but after looking at it and the back I question. It almost sounds hollow when I knock on it. Would love any feedback, trying to build up my collection and thought this was a very nice looking fossil, but I know very little.
  22. Is it fossil??

    hey all, sorry i'm new and didn't search topics to find similar ones cause i dont have time.. i think i have a fossil whitch someone has taken it and i'm hurry to know is it a real one or not! i'm kinda loosing it!! please help me to indentify is it a fossil or not, and if so, what kind? or what animal!! thanks a lot sorry for not being formal!
  23. Hi everyone! New member here. I am very excited to make my first post. So I came across a vendor today with some cool stuff, but I wanted to run some photos by the forum members first to see: 1) if you think they are real or fake. 2) how much would you expect to pay for a piece like that. Thanks for the help! Item #1 - Mosasaur Jaw To my eyes, this item looks legit as the teeth don't seem to be floating above the jaw with composite all around it, or teeth pointed in different directions. BUT...I know fakes are good and I am relatively new to educating myself to fakes vs real. Item #2 - Another Mosasaur Jaw (top and bottom) Also looks pretty legit to my newb eyes. But I am worried both top and bottom jaws in that position are too good to be true. Item #3 - Croc Skull? My gut reaction is fake...mostly due to the matrix looking like it was smeared on like cream cheese. Item #4 - Plesiosaur Skull and Neck It's apparently from goulmima southern morocco. Sadly I don't have more pics, as I didn't want to handle it and move it around. But I was able to get down low and see that it does have it's teeth. I just couldn't a good picture of it. :-\ The closest comparison I could find was this plesiosaur head/neck from an archived auction house website image. But the matrix around it seems the same.
  24. Hello all, I just started collecting and would like some help. I bought this at a local store here in town and after doing some research I am now worried if this is the real deal. I have tried to find information to see if I can figure it out myself but after hours of looking I can not come to a clear determination.I would like your guidance on my new found journey into fossils. Thank you.
