  1. Howdy folks I'm still building my collection of Hell Creek fossils. This time I'm attempting to add three new specimens, that of Anzu Wyliei, Dakotaraptor, and a Troodon. I would be very grateful to get your opinion on the following fossils. The raptor teeth are labeled as "Dromeosaur Tooth" from Hell Creek I want to know if any of them look like Dakotaraptor teeth to you. As for the other two I simply want your opinion on whether or not they are genuine fossils. Thank you Anzu claw measures approx. 15/16″ long Raptor Teeth 1 2 3 Toodon measures approx. 1/8″ Thanks again
  2. Hello everyone I am a fossil collector but I have never bought fossils from online before now, so I am very skeptical of every fossil I see online. If you can help me to confirm the fossils in the pictures below are authentic (and are what they say they are) I would be very thankful. Thank you! Acheroraptor temertyorum (tooth) Pachycephalosaurus (tooth) Ankylosaurus (scute) Thescolosaurus (tooth)
  3. These trilobite are real? Has repair or restoration?
  4. Today I want to talk about a problem that most people face when wanting to get a fossil at a lower price because of budget problem or what not, ... is it fake?, This is especially a problem on Auction Sites. When I was younger I thought if it said it was real it is real. I now know a bit more about fossils and how they can be faked to even fool scientists, so I guess you either have to scrape a bit of rock and try to expose a bit more of a fossil or get it X-rayed. I am no expert on fossil determination but I want you guys to give me some advice because I can usually only tell if the fossil is fake if it is obvious example (it has obviously different bones combined, carved and painted badly). Most fake fossils that were claimed to be real are from China and Morocco, but they normally do this because they need to make a living out of it so I am not saying they are terrible people. I personally only collect fossils that are real, and I am not interested in replicas. I have bought a fossil that took me a year to realize it was a fake. So I would like the experts to please leave some tips on how to tell a real fossil from a fake one please. best regards, indominus rex
  5. I found this fossil for sale and it seems almost too good to be true. Any help determining if this is real or a lemon would be great. The extra information I have on it is: Triassic Period, Carnian.Xingyi, Guizhou, China. Keichousaurus hui Young.
  6. Real Keichousaurus???

    Hello everyone! I recently saw this fossil for sale... I have always wanted a Keichousaurus, as they have always fascinated me. I think I found my chance. The seller is Dutch and lives in the south of the Netherlands (which is good for me when it comes to shipping). Do you think it's real or fake? The info given by the seller: Keichousaurus hui Xingyi, Guizhou, China 245 mya (mid-Triassic) Mudstones and silts from Guizhou Small restauration Hand-prepped "Like all dinosaurs keichousaurus belonged to the reptile family. Due to the heavy bone structure scientists think that these reptiles were about to make the evolutionary step from sea to land. These reptiles are slain as a result of a volcanic eruption about 250 million years ago. When the volcanic ash dried arose cracks. These cracks were filled with water, forming the calcite veins that you can see in the rock. Often breaking the stone plates on these veins. This copy has also been broken on the calcite vein that runs through the tail. This is expertly put back together. The keichousaurus is complete and unrestored." "Rare nicely prepared keichousaurus with many details. Size 13,1 cm. (17.5 cm in extended position). The matrix measuring 22,7cm x 14,5cm and is 0.8 cm thick. Gorgeous decorative fossil." If you want some more photo's or specific info, tell me in the replies. Thank you already for all your help! Warmest regards, Max
  7. Hello is this ammolite real? The information I have says it was found in the Bear Paw formation in Alberta Canada.
