  1. Hi, next month I am going to Paleotime, a fossil fair in Belgium and I am hoping to find a Keichousaurus fossil. Now I know their are lots of fakes out there (although after doing some reading on this forum most of them I came to the understanding most of them aren’t entirely faked, just enhanced, painted and composites) And I am going to be honest, I don’t really care that much if the Keichou is a little bit enhanced of painted. But I hope to find a specimen that is at least 75 % or more authentic. So I was hoping if you guys could give me some tips as to what I should look for when I examine a specimen I hope to buy, cause since I will buy it at the fair, I won’t be able to post picture here during the process. I know that these are some of the thing I already have to look for to enhance the chance of getting an authentic one · Missing bones · Broken bones · Strange or akward poses · Imperfections (fake always try to be as beautiful and perfect as possible) · Calcite cracks running through the skeleton · Looking for detailing in the skull like teeth and obvious skull fragments · Looking for paint with a magnifying glass · Taking a picture and doing a negative to see paint mischief · Looking for 3D relief on the specimen These are the things I know of the look for, but does anyone else have some tips for me on how to recognize it’s a genuine of faked piece. I will also be taking my LED Mini microscope 60x for on the phone with me for closer examination. Thanks in advance!
  2. Unidentified tooth and weird dino bone

    Hi! I have some question marks about some of my fossils that I bought early as a child. I have a tooth that was labelled as coelophysis, I know its not a coelophysis, everything about it is wrong for being that, I cant remember where it was found , but if someone has an idea what it possibly/maybe can be its good enough for me. The other fossil is a dinosaur Bone fragment which according to what i can remember is from hell creek formation and was labelled as triceratops. Im mostly curious to know why it looks like it does because it doesnt look like a normal fragment to me, it also has some unusal textures within a convex circle. Sorry for the mediocre photos, My mobile camera has the Specs of a potato. If you need to see more or better photos, just let me know and I will use another camera
  3. Interesting article in the NYT (New York Times) today on a fossil lizard called Megachirella. You may need subscription to view. However, they usually allow a certain number of free viewings per month. You might include this in yours. Cheers. Megachirella article
  4. L.S., Thought it would be fun to share this "chance encounter" I had at a mineral show. The photograph below shows a slab of petrified wood from the Triassic of the Isalo II Fm. of Madagascar. When material from this locality is offered for sale (which happens often and in large quantities), it is usually labelled as "Araucarioxylon" or simply as "petrified wood" (where the latter may actually be better). While most of the wood indeed has an "Araucaria-like" anatomy (see Rössler et al. 2014 for a recent discussion on the nomenclature), I recently was lucky enough to "find" something else. While the left-most photograph may not directly show it, the anatomy of this particular slab is quite different from the common Araucaria-like specimens. I tried to clarify the anatomy by contouring the main structures seen, which hopefully makes visible how this wood consists of multiple rings of perimedular bundles and wedge-shaped structures, showing both centripetal and centrifugal xylem (inward and outward growing regions, per as provisionally indicated by the blue and red arrows). This curious growth form (by modern wood standards, at least) is characteristic for the stems of some groups of Mesozoic seed ferns, such as those from the Umkomasiales order. The best-known genus with this type of anatomy is probably Rhexoxylon (see Archangelsky and Brett 1961), but there are more similar genera, making it difficult to arrive at a more specific identification.
  5. 3 D fossil musem...

    I'm thinking of creating an online 3 D version of my website, but not sure if the image will display on different setups.... I've included a link to an example of a piece of petrified wood (a piece I purchased). I have done some experiments in the field with my setup, I think 3 D in-situ photos would be possible. I've attache a 2 D picture as well. Any feedback appreciated. http://www.safossils.com/petrifiedwood.html Thanks, Walt
  6. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  7. Coelophysis tooth ?

    Would this be a Coelophysis tooth form Bull Canyon Formation of San Miguel County, NM ?
  8. Dilophosaurus ??? footprint

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Eubrontes: Dilophosaurus ? Raised relief (footprint coated to stand out). 200 mya Triassic Erving, Massachusetts . Connecticut River valley. Clay sandstone **Sadly, something smudged the tip of the middle toe while still wet, and ruined the beautiful claw mark. Heel to middle claw tip = 10", & from tip of right claw to top of left claw = 8". The 2 main types you commonly see are Eubrontes and Grallator, but Eubrontes is different, as it is apparently understood to be pretty much dilophosaurus footprints. (Citation???) I know there are probably sometimes others' footprints that will fall under the name, but it seems to be to the point of Eubrontes almost being synonymous with dilophosaurus. (Citation???) I KNOW I'm going to take flak for labeling this as just "dilophosaur", and I understand why, but all in all, in this case I feel completely comfortable and safe using the name without a qualifier. I'm very sorry to all who are bothered and annoyed by it
  9. Hi, a month back I bought these two plant fossils at a shop. But unfortunatly the guy at the store forgot to put the information card of them in the box. :/ What I can remember reading when I bought them was that they were from the Triassic era and that they were found in the Bruchsal area in Germany. But that's unfortunatly all I could remember, I don't know their exact age or species. I tried to research the exact age of the fossils found in that area or what species can be found there, but unfortunatly in my search I did not find any anwsers, only one guy with pictures of the same fossil species from the same area and age, but unfortunatly I did not get a reply back from the guy. So I was hoping one of you guys here could help me to ID the fossil. Thanks in advance! photo hosting

  17. Multitaxic bone assemblage from the Post Quarry

    Hey everyone I recently found this paper on ResearchGate.. thought some people might want to see it. The paper basically describes the skeletal remains of various archosauriform taxa from a new Triassic bone assemblage from the Post Quarry (Dockum Group; Texas). The taxa described include Vancleavea campi and a new silesaurid (Soumyasaurus aenigmaticus - see below). Here's the RG link: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/327020021_Description_of_a_multitaxic_bone_assemblage_from_the_Upper_Triassic_Post_Quarry_of_Texas_Dockum_Group_including_a_new_small_basal_dinosauriform_taxon Sarigül, Agnolín and Chatterjee (2018) - Description of a multitaxic bone assemblage from the Upper Triassic Post Quarry of Texas (Dockum Group), including a new small basal dinosauriform taxon Abstract: A bone assemblage composed of intermixed small cranial and postcranial fragments from the Post Quarry of Texas, USA, is described. The skeletal elements represent multiple individuals of different taxa, including a partial dorsal column assigned to Vancleavea campi and an incomplete dentary referred to a new genus and species of a small-sized basal dinosauriform. Ankylothecodont dental implantation of the dinosauriform dentary bears strong resemblance to silesaurids. A fragmentary archosauromorph braincase is another intriguing element of the assemblage; it displays a striking contrast of a derived otoccipital on a plesiomorphic basioccipital. Poor preservation prevents more conclusive taxonomic assignments for the rest of the skeletal elements. The observed attrition and entangling in this bone assemblage reflect the complexities of the Dockum land tetrapod taphonomy. Partial dentary of S. aenigmaticus
  18. ID please Dinosaur tooth

    Hi all I spotted both these teeth on our favourite Auction site. They are really not much money but I also don’t have not much money, so I thought I get a second opinion. @Troodon yesterday you said if I remember right (sorry I can’t find the original post) Coelophysis from the Triassic Bull Canyon Formation of New Mexico has not been described there as yet. Fabrosaurus from the Triassic Bull Canyon Formation of New Mexico. If they look good to the forum . I hope I can get a couple of Triassic dinosaur teeth for the price of a chicken dinner . Thank in advance and sorry to bother you again Frank.
