  1. Hi there i continue to maintain my very very amateur status but I've been trying to read the different threads on here regarding spinosaurus jaw and what I gathered so far is pitting is reflective of croc jaw and if it only has a single socket or also makes it difficult to determine if its spino or croc. I found this one on our favorite auction site and wanted to get your opinion
  2. Is this dinosaur skin?

  3. Found it on online. Please tell me these are not fakes?
  4. Once again I am back to ask if this onchopristus tooth is real.
  5. I have been trying to look for an onchopristus numidus tooth to complete a collection of mine and I am unsure if these are genuine as it is from a website I am unsure about.
  6. I bought this one already, my very first fossil of any kind. Is there anything that sets off any alarms? I know people usually enquire about longer teeth which might show signs of extension, but I would feel better just making sure. I also have my eyes set on a batch of 5. From what little I've researched, those 5 set off more alarm bells but I'm at my max total for attachments.
  7. Hey everyone, I'm new to the site so hopefully I read all the posting rules correctly. Having said that, I was given this meg tooth as a gift. I am unsure however if it is real as it's missing the serrated edges and has a remarkable polish that gives it a glassy texture. I am not aware of any restoration methods or what not when it comes to selling to the general public so I can only go off my own knowledge of meg teeth. It's also heavier than my phone. Is there anyone who could maybe point out some red flags (or green ones!) to let me know if she was sold a replica? I can also add more images if need be. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1bcvrtv7m6d7q13/AAD-RcmDpOCMgeJ6aJ_Xh40Pa?dl=0 Please click that link to view all 6 images. (For some reason I can't upload them here)
  8. Just got an offer for this 5 Megs. Do they look suspicious? I don`t have any experience with Megs from this location. Thanks
  9. I am looking into building a project for my partner, and she loves the Stegosaurus...so I go looking at whats out there....seems like fossil dorsal armor plates are extremely pricey and other fossils are rare. I know many of them come out of the Morrison Formation and I found some small fossils for sale that claim they are neck scutes...but they are VERY small and the price seems ridiculously low for how rare they are supposed to be. Is there anyway to tell if these are real and actually from the correct species?
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. Dinosaur Coprolites from China?

    These are being sold on online for $10 as dinosaur coprolites from China. Any opinions?
  14. 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!
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Hi, I just noticed this fossil and wondered if it was genuine? I noticed it had no location details. Thank you.
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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)
  23. 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!
  24. 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!
  25. I have this megalodon tooth and I was wondering if if it is real or not. Please help.
