  1. Singapore is a small country and we lack a dedicated fossil museum here. Thankfully, we do have the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum which hosts several impressive dinosaur skeletons and has a small section for fossils. The museum can be found at the Kent Ridge Campus of the National University of Singapore in case anyone is thinking of visiting it when my country finally reopens. Interestingly, this museum is built around 3 Diplodocidae dinosaurs, so you'll see plenty of their pictures as I showcase the place Exterior of the museum The entry is at the right The very first fossils you will spot upon entering This is the middle of the musuem. All the exhibits are built around these 3 skeletons
  2. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bottom: Rhombodus binkhorsti Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Severn Formation Locality: Bowie, Maryland, USA Size: 1 meters Diet: Molluscs and crustaceans art by Nobu Tamura --------------- Polyptychodon interruptus Age: 105.3 - 94.3 mya | Cretaceous Formation: Stoilensky Quarry stratigraphic unit Locality: Stary-Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia Size: Maybe 7 meters (This is a tooth taxon so size is not confirmed) Diet: Anything it could catch Note: If you consider Polytychodon a nomen dubium, then this is a Pliosauridae indet. art by Mark Witton ----------------- Prognathodon giganteus Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Ouled Abdoun Basin Locality: Khouribga Phosphate Deposits, Morocco Size: 10-14 meters Diet: Everything art by SYSTEM(ZBrushCentral) --------------- Coloborhynchinae indet. Age: 99.7 - 94.3 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Kem Kem Beds Locality: Southeast Morocco Size: 7 meters (high estimate) Diet: Fish and cephalopods
  3. Hi all, I have fossils from Singapore's Jurong Formation, aged from late Triassic to early Jurassic (235 - 175 mya). Some were found over 10 years ago by a fossil-digger while others were dug up recently by the two of us. Several specimens have been handed over to our local museum. However, no one really knows what family or genus these bivalves belong to. I was hoping you guys could help. Specimen 0A Specimen 0B Specimen 0B alt view Specimen 0B alt view

  8. Hi all. Remember that I said a local TV crew came over to my place to shoot videos of my fossils? The program was just shown on news yesterday! The main speaker with the black shirt is Calvin, who heads the Singapore Fossils Collectors, majority of the segment's on his incredible collection. I'm the speaker in gray, and everyone else are members of the SFC. http://www.channel8news.sg/news8/ca/morningexpress/episodes/ca20160219-me-hobby/2529120.html It's in Chinese, so I'll give a rough transcript. 0:00 - News Anchor: Remember Jurassic World? When it was released, it spurred interested worldwide in dinosaurs. 0:25 - News Anchor: So what did they looked like? How big were they? We can only understand these from their fossils. 0:45 - News Anchor: 38-year old Calvin has a room filled with fossils; there's marine life, dinosaurs, even poops! 1:03 - Calvin: I've been into fossils since 10. My mom bought me a trilobite, and it led me to realize there's a whole new world out there. 1:22 - News Anchor: 27-year old Andy's interest in dinosaurs spurred him to collect fossils. 1:37 - News Anchor: To share this interest, he authored a book, hoping to cultivate a love of fossils in children 1:50 - Andy: Boys love dinosaurs anyway. I've never lost my interest even in my 20s. Dinos are fasinating creatures. As we uncover fossils, we increase our knowledge of the natural world. E.g. what Earth was like, how animals of the past lived and hunted. 2:13 - News Anchor: Entering Andy's room, we realize he's put in quite an effort into displaying fossils. 2:18 - Andy: I protect my fossils from direct sunlight and elements with a cabinet. My dad and I customized this cabinet by sawing away the original wooden door, fixing on an acrylic, transparent door, and got an LED light strip which we installed inside. 2:44 - News Anchor: Calvin and Andy are part of a group called the Singapore Fossils Collectors. Besides sharing this hobby in the media, their group regularly meet, going to various members' houses. 2:59 - News Anchor: Calvin has stated this group allows him to meet fellow fossil lovers. 3:08 - Calvin: When young, this was a lonely hobby. Even as I collected, there was no one for me to share it with. Now with social media and SFC, we can learn from each other, trade, and improve our collections. -Commercial Break- 3:47 - News Anchor: Whenever overseas, Calvin visits museums and fossil shops. It's estimated he has over 1000 fossils. 4:00 - Calvin: This is a plesiosaur paddle that's over 65 million years old. You can see its finger bones. This is a rare fossil I purchased from Spain. 4:20 - Calvin: Here's another special one. A segnosaur egg nest. I bought it in Hong Kong, though it's dug up from China. Chinese fossils these days can no longer be exported. 4:35 - Calvin: This is a dinosaur we see often from Hollywood. A fearsome Tyrannosaur dug up from Kazakhstan. 4:45 - Calvin: This is a sabretooth cat. It's much younger than dinosaurs. It was around when the first men were around, but we hunted them to extinction. 4:57 - News Anchor: Do you know fossils are formed, and how we know they are real? 5:10 - Calvin: Fossils are the remains of animals and plants. As they died, their remains are quickly buried, and over time and high pressure, turn into fossils. They must be buried quickly, say next to a river, or covered by volcano ash etc. 5:47 - Calvin: There are fossils sites near Singapore, such as Australia, Canada, America, China, Morocco, France, Thailand and even Malaysia, and trilobites in Vietnam. 6:18 - Calvin: Some shell fossils and teeth are common in Morocco, and thus can be cheap. Complete fossils, or famous ones you see in Hollywood movies usually cost far more. 6:45 - Calvin: For fossil authencity, we get it from reputable sellers. Next, we need to know its morphology, weight, texture. We can even tap on it to hear the sound. There are quick ways such as shining a UV light, or to poke them with a red-hot needle. 7:24 - Calvin: For maintaining fossils, they are generally rocks, so many are durable. Certain ones however, such as trilobites may get pyrite disease so I keep them in a special cabinet. -Fossil segment ends- Enjoy
  9. 2015 was a great year for fossil-collecting, and as per usual, I was honored to be able to host the end-year meet-up at my place. First up, some pics of my collection.
  10. Hello all, I will be in Singapore from December to end January. And I cannot bring my fossils with me... T.T Does anyone know if there are fossil sites around Singapore? Malaysia? Indonesia? I know there are some finds in Indonesia (Java) but would be great to have more precise information (papers, etc) or people from the area. Any info will be much appreciated. Thanks!! Edu
  11. Hi all, I'm from Singapore, and i would really appreciate if you could help me to take a look at this photo of a said authentic prehistoric dinosaur egg from China. The seller is from Singapore, and he claims that he bought this item from an antiques shop in China many years ago, and that antique shop has since shut down. Is this a genuine dinosaur egg? There are two eggs. kindly refer to the attachment photos Please do share your expertise!! Thank you in advance!
  12. Hello everyone. It's been a number of years since I started collecting, and I must offer my sincerest thanks to this forum for ever being so helpful and supportive, to the traders for the amazing exchanges, and to the mods for making this such a pleasant place to stay. Allow me to present some of my fossil collections. I hope you guys will enjoy them as much as I. I shall update this thread over the months as I continually photograph and update my specimens. Overview of my primary fossil cabinet
  13. Hi all, 2013 has been an interesting year for many fossil collectors. Since the Singapore community is so small, we have regular meet-ups and trading sessions with one another. Here I would like to share on the delightful events we had for the last quarter of 2013. Firstly, there is an ongoing exhibition at the Singapore Science Center called 'Titans of the Past', which is set up by Jack Horner and his talented team. The Singapore Fossil Collectors group was invited by the Science Center to give a talk on dinosaurs and paleontology for a dinosaur-science camp. Imagine our surprise at how knowledgeable the kids (aged 9-12) were, even knowing facts like Amphicoelias being the largest known dinosaur based on fragmented remains, and Argentinosaurus being the largest confirmed sauropod. Or that Eoraptor was one of the earliest dinosaurs. Other events to continue on below posts.
  14. As many of you are aware, Singapore is a country that does not yield fossil sites, nor do we have a strong geological heritage or much government/state support. However, that should not prevent our youth from learning about the rich culture and wonders of fossils, Earth's ancient history or paleontology! Our group of fossil-collectors recently partnered with a well-known school, National Junior College and held a lecture for a group of 80 high school students' science day. We started off with short video showing scenes from Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure. Seeing a mosasaur chomp up a shark sure got the students' attention! The lecture organizer Calvin leads the talk. Seeing the looks of amazement on the children's faces make this all worthwhile!
  15. The Singapore Fossil Collector's Group just had our quarterly meetup. Eight of us gathered in one collector's house for a very eventful afternoon where we discussed about the on-goings of the fossil world, had a great show-and-tell session of our own beloved fossils, and of course fossil exchange and trade! Among the fossils being showcased and traded were Several quality meg teeth A full set of Cretaceous marine predator teeth Dinosaur teeth and claw Various shark and croc teeth LOTS and LOTS of amber Several fish Miocene plant slab Many spiny and high-quality trilobites Many ammonites Gastropods and other marine invertebrates Washington crabs Here are the pics of that incredible event.
