  1. This is the second item I purchased. It’s about 6.5” from Kem Kem in Morocco, any idea if it’s real, seller claims this is world-class and has minimal restoration, and the tip is natural
  2. Hello all, Recently I purchased a pair of tooth from a seller who sold me real keichousaurus and another real frog fossil based on forum opinions. He says this pair is from the same animal. I don’t even know if it’s Smilodon or Machairodus, nor do I have information about locality except that it was originally from China. Main reason I’m asking the forum is that as this is my first time owning saber cat teeth I’m not sure if they are always this light? 31-33 grams per piece only. It doesn’t seem cast with the great amount of detail. And about restoration it was broken and repaired, which is what the seller also said. Best wishes
  3. hallo community! few days ago i ve bougt a mosasur skull on an auction. Could anybody help me by giving me some informations about what actually i own now. As you see i am not an expert but i am very interested in fossils. thanks for your help.
  4. Dinosaur Coprolites from China?

    These are being sold on online for $10 as dinosaur coprolites from China. Any opinions?
  5. Hello all, looking for some opinions on this piece. Not worried about it being composited as long as it is all real cave bear bone and nothings cast. Thanks in advance and happy New Year!
  6. Hello, I was offered a couple of fossils and this is the second one to the previous keichousaurus post. It’s a fossil frog, genus Liaobatracus, from early Cretaceous, Yixian formation, Liaoning province, China, exported in the 80s. 20 cm. Any ideas whether it’s a genuine piece. These are the best photos I was able to get. Best wishes
  7. Hello all, i was offered this keichousaurus and was wondering if someone has an idea if it’s authentic, judging from the photos only. The seller describes it as museum quality. And it’s supposed to be seven inches. These are the best photos I was able to get. It is supposedly from China from an old collection exported in the 80s. Best wishes
  8. Hello all, I saw one seller online listing this piece for auction. I'm interested in bidding but the fact the seller is from Taiwan worries me. Other than that, the egg looks nice. Seller says it might be a small tyrannosaurus or large therapod egg. Locality is noted as "East Asia", which I assume is china. And the description says this is from an old Chinese collection exported in the 80s. Cretaceous of East Asia. Best wishes
  9. Hi, I just noticed this fossil and wondered if it was genuine? I noticed it had no location details. Thank you.
  10. Could experts share the primary indicators to check for regarding authenticity of a Mosasaurus jaw specimen? - specifically root / tooth junctures. I’m aware of the sophistication of fakes in the market. Below is a recent purchase - I’d like feedback on details to look for in verifying authenticity. Thank you!
  11. Attached are photos of a Odontochile I took a chance on. It's nice size and while not cheap, for my purposes it was a good price. I was fairly certain it was legit when I originally posted it based off the high res photos, but when I got it I freaked myself out as I wasn't seeing the eye lenses, but they are there. Just a lesson in the dangers of high res photos I guess. Anyway, curious what ya'll think. Also curious if Odontochile is correct as I understand from searching there is some discussion about that. Thanks! Just wanted to add that it passes the bite test and I am unable to find any obvious seams in it with my loupe. I know it has some repairs but no restoration, but that was disclosed when speaking with the seller.
  12. Dear all, I am new to this website and to collecting fossils. I have seen a dinosaur egg, supposedly real, advertised as an egg from a large theropod. To me, the egg looks fake because the surface is very smooth and the shape "too perfect". Supposedly the egg was discovered in the 1960s. I would be happy if a knowledgeable person could briefly state their opinion on whether this is a fake or not.. Thank you very much
  13. Hi guys! First things first, I've been following this forum (and this section inter alia) for a good year, I simply love the community, so I decided to join it and actively participate instead of being just an external viewer. I'm not a fossil expert, but I'm willing to learn and I'll do my best to improve. But I guess that since this is a fossil lovers community, it's fossils what you want to see. Well... I inherited from a granduncle of mine a LOT of minerals -geodes, crystals, nuggets etc- and fossils (I hope I can show you my collection over time), including ammonites -guess that guy litterally LOVED ammonites- of all shapes and sizes, dinosaur, shark and mammoth teeth, amber with insect inclusions and many many other things... including trilobites. The largest trilobite I got is this: it's a 27x17x4cm piece, not the best I've seen in my life but still pretty good IMO. No idea of where he got it, nor when, not even how much he paid for it. Still, I'm pretty sure it's a fake. But before officially confirming that my granduncle threw his money away with this, I'd like to ask you a second opinion. Thanks for your help, I'm sure he would really appreciate it (pretty sure atm he's resting in Paradise, surrounded by his beloved ammonites). (if you'd like to see more photos, just ask)
  14. Hello! I’m new here and I was wondering if anyone here could help me. I’m a complete novice to all of this and the reason I’m here is because I wanted to buy my brother some Spinosaurus teeth as a gift, as they are his favorite, but I wanted to make sure what I’m buying is authentic or if it’s been repaired. I hope I’ve found a reputable site, but I would like to ask anyone’s opinion just to be on the safe side. The first one is 2.67 long. The second is 2.61. Both are said to be from the Kem Kem Beds. Any help would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  15. Hello everyone. I saw this green river stingray bidding for much less than it is worth on an auction site. I will likely not bid on it, but in case I do I wanted to check it’s authenticity. I know these are not really faked, but it would be quite a large purchase so I just wanted to make sure everything was in order with it. Thank you all!
  16. I have this megalodon tooth and I was wondering if if it is real or not. Please help.
  17. Hi, Another trilobite question. Bought this recently and although every sign I've read about these creatures points out it is genuine I just thought to check it with you experts as well.
  18. Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to collecting and have gotten most of my fossils so far from one website that I think is reputable. I am trying out a website that I have purchased one fossil from already because I am interested in getting a dinosaur egg. It is a little pricey, so I just wanted to get some reassurance that it's the real deal before I pay for it. It says in the description that the original owner bought it 30 years ago and that its location of origin is unknown, which made me a little suspicious. I would greatly appreciate if I could get a little direction on this one before making a commitment.
  19. So I recently purchased a moroccan drotops trilobite, mostly because of its size. It is 5 1/2 inches. It was a impulse purchase and I was not concidering if it might be fake. The reason I think it might not be genuine is the random scratches all around the trilobite on the matrix. I remembered reading that scratches like that are sometimes added to hide signs of it being faked. My original thought when I bought it, was that the scratches could be there from it being quickly prepped. Let me know what you all think! I've attached pictures of it from all angles. Thank you!
  20. Hello friends, nice to meet you. I am from Vietnam, my friends here dont know much about fossil. So can you help me? Can you tell me this is real or fake? It smells very pungent, i dont know why? I see some air balloon... Thank you
  21. Hello forum I recently bought this 9cm big Keichousaurus and would like to get some opinions, if there are any painted parts on it? thanks marco
  22. Hello is this psittacosaurus skull is real and any restoration and repair done to it ?
  23. Hello everyone! So this fossil is being sold in the U.S. as part of an estate. It is labeled as compsognathus, but I am certain that it is not. It looks to me like some sort of marine reptile out of China. So I am wondering what it is, and if it is genuine. Thank you!
  24. Hey guys! Bought a Meg tooth from a trusted seller for my soon, but for some reason I want to confirm it is real. Here are a couple images. It is about 5.6inch in length and weights 1lb 8oz or 0.6kg. Looks great when I hold it but as you know they make great fakes... so if anyone can spot something please let me know. Thanks!
  25. Hello everyone, First of all I must say that I’m new to buying fossils and that I know nothing about Ammonites. Recently I saw this Ammonite laying around in a small home decor shop. I immediately loved it, so I decided to purchase it. However, I’ve got a suspicion that this one is fake (or at least heavily sculpted), for the following reasons: 1. It was quite cheap. The certified ones I’ve seen on the internet (same size, same price) are much less detailed than this one. 2. It has ‘flaking’ layers and some cracks (see close up pictures) 3. It just looks a little bit too perfect compared with the ones I’ve seen on the internet. I wouldn’t really mind if it were fake, because it just looks really cool. But I’m really curious what you people think. Is this real, fake or sculpted? Thank you!
