Here are the rest of the photos.  Not sure if this classified as BIG, but it's the largest I've got.

I think it fits the criteria for the thread. :thumbsu:

Calamites were basically tree sized horsetail plants. Seems BIG to me!

We just picked up a fossil that is now easily our biggest. It is not even here yet. Shipping may take a little longer than usual lol

Previously our biggest were a Camarasaurus rib section and a Diplodocus coracoid (2nd picture), both right around 14" x 10". This one is quite a bit bigger and much heavier. We think the kids will LOVE it.

 

Diplodocus sp

Partial pubus

Jurassic

Morrison Formation

Wyoming

 

23"x 10". It is 4 inches thick and weighs over 20 pounds.

I had no idea how small that picture of the big bone would be. Ironic lol I will post a better picture when it arrives.

Now that’s what I’m talking about!!! Thanks everyone for adding to the thread! Awesome stuff! :dinothumb:

@gigantoraptor

Im not sure how big Campanile giganteum get, but it sure looks massive to me. Love it! The Vinctifer comptoni is bad either!  

 

@Abstraktum

That's a nice big set of mosasaur verts!

 

@Kane

I love coral and that’s a big one! 

 

@fossilsonwheels

Nice! The kiddos will love it!

 

@ParkerPaleo

Maybe not your biggest, but a nice fossil non the less!

 

@ziggycardon

Your collection never ceases to amaze! Thanks for sharing!

 

@Ludwigia @Bobby Rico

I was hoping for some giant sized ammonites and you two delivered! Thanks!

I have my woolly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis) skeleton composite of course. Or is that cheating as it's made up of isolated bones? The skull is about 70 cm long(2.2 feet), though that one is a replica. The whole skeleton is around 3 meters (10 feet). An old photo from last year as I haven't gotten any new bones for it since.

:default_faint::drool:

Cheating or not, that is a thing of beauty! Thanks so much for sharing! 
 

I think I would have it on every post. Make it my signature!

In my limited experience, fossil price increases exponentially with size. 

So I tend to keep to the smaller end of the scale. :look:

 

The material found on my one and only collecting trip so far was quite fragile. Biggest piece was about hand sized.
