  1. Hello guys . I can i get some opinions on these two eggs They came from an old collection. So they say The first was labelled as a protoceratops 14.5cm The second one is labelled tabosaurus 17.5 cm Thanks
  2. The seller says it has only a small glued fracture. What do you all think?
  3. Is this a real T-rex tooth? The seller is marketing it as such but I can't stop a hunch that it may not be true. and / or it's a carcharodontosaurus tooth or something but they're usually thinner I thought. There is very little description and not a lot of accompanying information either. What do you experts think?
  4. Hello, I have brought this two trilobites on a online store last month but don’t know it’s real or not, can you help me ? Thanks !!!
  5. Bought this awhile ago can someone tell me if it’s real or not and what possible shark it came from?
  6. Hello, could you help me what do you think about this Spinosaurus claw and bones? I´m thinking about buy it. I know, that is reconstructed, but I hope is not fake, or is it? Thank you very much for help.
  7. Hi Guys and Girls, as you can see im really a new member. im currently searching for a good Carcharodontosaurus tooth and i found this one. It would be great if you could tell me if its real or not and in which condition it is and for which price i should buy that. best regards, this forum is phantastic! Phil
  8. Hello guys . I need some help. I just bought some eggs (i think) they were not to expensive so i had to take the risk before someone else got them I will try to post them one at a time Thanks in advance
  9. Hello, and thanks to everyone who helped with my last trilobite that I had inquired about. I had a bad feeling about it from the start, so I wasn’t surprised that it turned out to be mostly fake. I have a few more trilobites here that I’ve acquired over the years that I was hoping to get some more opinions on, and if possible maybe get the species identified, as not all of them were identified when I bought them. I'll start with just this one for now (I was going to post more, but I seem to have reached some file limit and can't post any more photos in this thread). It is about six inches outstretched. I am certain that it is at least partially real, as there is some good eye detail, but there is also some very obvious restoration work on one of the eyes, which indicates that at least some portion of the fossil is not original, and I was wondering if anyone can say which parts of this trilobite are original fossil and which are not. Also, there is a split in the rock which divides the fossil in half at about the point where the cephalon meets the thorax (it looks further down from the bottom of the matrix, but from the top that’s where the crack is), so I suspect that this may be a composite. Thank you
  10. Hi! I’m new in the forum. I'm an Italian naturalist, sorry for my english. I wanted to ask for an opinion about this spinosaurus tooth .. I don't think it's a single tooth, in your opinion how much is it composed and restored? thanks!
  11. Hi everybody I found a seller who is wanting to sell this Mosasaur matrix-specimen. Initial photo's look ok, but I would like to get your opinions on it. Can ask for detailed photos if needed. This would be my first 'major' item that I would add to my humble collection, so naturally, I'm cautious. Kind Regards Max (Belgium)
  12. 3.6 inches. Some restoration on the tip.
  13. Hey guys, does anyone know of any good fossil selling websites? I have seen a lot of websites but none that I’m really fond of. (I’m into collecting dinosaur teeth and claw). Please let me know
  14. Hey guys, Recently my friend bought a trilobite and the seller told him it was a reedops, but I checked some pictures on the website and found that it should be a drotops? Both eyes showing good details but still quite doubt that this one is a fake trilobite cuz the seller just gave him a wrong information. I don't have any experience on how to recognize these kind of fossils. The last picture was send to him by the seller. Please help me T T Many thanks!!
  15. Replicas vs real

    Hey guys, has anyone here bought a fossil replica? If so does it look like the real thing? Does it feel the same? I’m thinking of buying some replicas because I can’t afford some real fossils.
  16. Hello everyone, half a year ago I bought this Phareodus fossil. I am extremely happy with it and know it’s real, but my question is how much, if any, has been retouched. There is obvious putty in the center of the fish to glue it together. There is a noticeable orange glaze over it which I’m wondering is just to keep it from getting scratched or damage. Thanks
  17. Hello are these real. I got this offerd to me and want some opinions Thanks After some time away i want to start collecting again
  18. 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
  19. Is this dinosaur skin?

  20. Found it on online. Please tell me these are not fakes?
  21. Once again I am back to ask if this onchopristus tooth is real.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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)
  25. Just got an offer for this 5 Megs. Do they look suspicious? I don`t have any experience with Megs from this location. Thanks
