Real Psittacosaurus Skull?

Recommended Posts

Alex Pritchard

So this has cropped up on an auction site. My friend is tempted by it, however I believe it to just be a rock. It is claimed to be a Psittacosaur Skull. 
The seller claims that they acquired it off a 'geologist' however to me, it looks like an eroded rock, and lacks any characteristics of being a skull?

I feel like it could potentially mislead uninformed newbies? Pictures aren't fantastic.

I could be totally wrong of course, however can anyone else see if it is a skull or not?

The great man himself Troodon said don’t blame the sellers if they have misled you  , it is up to you to educate yourself.  Good advice that I have tried to go by. 

 

Yeah just a rock.

Here here dude! Completely agree :)

I'm sorry buddy, but it's definitely just a rock. And this rock is completely different from what really is an authentic Psittacosaurus Skull.

Congratulations on your initiative not to be seduced by a good offer, but rather to come here to educate yourself. :dinothumb:

Thank you buddy! My friend was convinced, and I thought it was just a rock, we had a good friendly debate about it! I'm thankful that this forum is here to help! :) maybe one day he will get his hands on one! It's just a shame that some sellers are misinformed! :)

I messaged the seller about it and they ignored me. I’ve been seeing more and more of these rocks being sold as dinosaur skulls.
