  1. So I found a website that claims to sell real fossils and found 2 items of my taste now but am not sure if they're real or not
  2. Nichet1122

    My first rare fossil

    This is my first rare fossil! It's Gallimimus bullatus toe fossil. It measured 8.5cm. I think it's juvenile. Discovered Area : Gobi Desert, Nemeget Formation
  3. So I bought this triceratops Epoccipital online and was wondering if it's real here's the photos I took and some from the website Here's more photos I took

    Coprolite ID please

    No location unfortunately as I bought this at an auction for my toddler (who loves dinosaurs and also poop). I am dying to know what creature plopped this deuce so my son and I can learn more about it. I know some of you on here are experts on ancient excrement, thanks for your help!! Measures: 4.5” x 1.5” Weight: 8.5 oz
  5. Hey everyone! I posted this on a Facebook group and had some great responses. My question is, I recently purchased a segnosaur egg from a reputable dealer who has been selling Dino fossils for a long time now. I have read how some Dino eggs might be fake, and I figured I’d just ask the question and get your professional opinions. Because of the reputation of the dealer, I do believe it’s authentic. It’s not like I bought it off of online from a random person, but I still wanted to ask the question. What do you think? I appreciate your feedback. IMG_9607.MOV
  6. Assert for bugging everyone with a topic like this, but are these dinosaur eggshells real? I know some of the photos are extremely blurry but it’s the only ones I have and the seller hasn’t got back to me yet for extra photos.
  7. So I gave up on finding spinosaurus claws so I decided to switch carnivores to herbivores and to my surprise I found a lot of beautiful pieces like this and I was wondering if it's genuine or not

    What kind of vertebra is this?

    Found in Scollard Formation. I read in an old trip report by @Ridgehiker that ceratopsian verts have an hourglass shape and thought this piece seemed to fit the bill. @Troodon

    Three possibly mislabeled teeth

    These three are from Milk River, Hill County, Montana of the Judith River Formation. Seller has the first two labelled as Albertosaurus---So I am guessing they are actually Daspleto/Gorgosaurus and number 3 is sold as Centrosaurid, would I be right that Centrosaur isn't from Judith River and it should be unidentified ceratopsid---I notice there are quite a few found in Judith River. I'll put them ins eperate posts because there are a lot of photos supplied, which I hope will be helpful. Seller has been responsive in the past, so I can likely get addit
  10. Hey! I was wondering if anyone knew any good places to buy custom stands/displays for bones or how to make them. Thanks! (sorry didn't realize this was fossil id and I don't know how to delete it)

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  12. Hi Everyone, I'm very excited to have found and have an opportunity to post on this forum. The rock with a potential fossil was found by my six year old son while we were hiking along a riverbed (Paint Branch watershed) within greater Silver Spring, Maryland area. The rock was in a shallow stream. My son was pulling me by the sleeve to show me a "fox track". He loves nature and always draws my attention to various tracks and animal bones on the ground so I didn't think much of it at first until I realized this time the track was in stone instead of the usual sand/mud
  13. Hello everyone! I just started learning about dinosaurs and am very excited! I’m trying to grapple with some weird things about the T-rex and was wondering this: could T-rex have been a “persistence” or endurance hunter? I’ve been reading things that say the T-rex was probably slower than most of its prey. Rather than out-sprinting its prey, might T-rex have simply been in “better shape”? That is, might it have been capable of sustaining an elevated pace far longer than its prey, then relying on superior tracking skills to relentlessly close on hiding prey attempting to co

    Baby dinosaur?

    Can anyone identify this?
  15. Hello everybody. I have a question: I saw this online, according to the description it is a fragment of dinosaur bone from the morrison formation, found in Utah. I know that it is very difficult to attribute specific species to such fragments. However, I would like to know, at least, what genre it could be. My personal opinion is that it resembles a piece of ankylosaurid skin plaque. The bone has been polished on one side, which can be seen in the fifth photo. That is the question that I would like you to help me solve please.
  16. Hi Guys, I have bought a Psittacosaurus skeleton. It came in pieces, some bones were broken etc. I put the bones back together and I am quite happy with the result. Now I would like to assemble the skeleton properly. Has anyone of you done something like this before and can tell me which material is best to take from it? Attached are some pictures of the current state and 2 pictures of another skeleton already mounted, that's how I would like to do it. Any Tips, Tools or something? best regards from Germany Phil
  17. Hi all, I recently purchased these 2 bone segments labeled as dinosaur bones from Morocco. They both are solid like a rock and feel dense like a piece of petrified wood. The ends have been cut and polished. They certainly look like bone to me but they are somewhat small. Other than their petrified like feel they look like they could have come from a modern animal. I don't see any indication of tree rings like petrified wood may have. What do you think, are they bone? Could they be millions of years old? Fakes? Thanks for taking time to look at these. 7 pictures for bone 1 below
  18. This weekend i made a very lucky find, in the process of cleaning up. Photo's to follow soon. I was very emotional when i picked it up and almost at once saw it was Spinosaur. It mind sound odd ( maybe other fossil hunters may relate to this), that a minute before finding it, i had a strong feeling come across me, of something special nearby. I have identified it as the anterior part of the dentary of a Spinosaur, just before the rostrum begins. There is an eroded partial tooth showing at one end. Maybe more inside the mandibular section. A scan would confirm this. Its

    Unknown bones

    Purchased together as one lot a long time ago from online auction, was also sold as unknown bones. If you need a better photo of anything let me know. I did the repair as well with hydrocal as it was broken. Zero smell with burn test on both. Curious if someone could share opinoin ?

    Dinosaur claw?

    This piece of claw is found at Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. It’s Cretaceous. Is it a dinosaur claw?
  21. Hi Everyone! My family and I are going on a trip to North Colorado this August and I really want to collect and keep some dinosaur fossils while I'm there. Does anyone know of a program, charter, or guide who can help me? It doesn't have to be in Colorado, I'm close enough to Wyoming that that is also an option. I tried looking for something on my own and all I can find is either parks where collecting is forbidden or what is basically "pay us two grand to be our field slave for a week".

    Alberta Gold

    Went on a wild fossil hunting trip today out on private land in the Dinosaur Park fm. and found something that I’ve since reported to the Tyrrell. My best guess is a partial hadrosaur tail. The specimen is about 3 feet long by 1.5 feet wide. There was no other associated material nearby but there may be more of this dinosaur under the surface. I’ll also post a few of my favourite surface finds for today. I have a before and after photo of a vert, a large partial rib and some tyrannosaur teeth & a croc tooth.
  23. Hello, the other day I found this on a hiking trail in Wissahickon park in Philadelphia, pa. it looks like a footprint, but the age of the Wissahickon formation is Paleozoic, not Mesozoic. The rock is roughly brick shaped, and there are stone structures/ ruins around the park. It may be a possibility that an old structure was built with Triassic rock, which can be found a short drive west. I am having trouble identifying the type of rock. Is this a Grallator track, or a Grallator shaped coincidence? thanks!

    KemKem Basin Dinosaur Vertebra.

    Hello everyone, I am trying to identify a dinosaur vertebra that comes from the KemKem basins in Morocco. Can you help me ?
  25. Just out of curiosity I need yall opinions on this. So in 2005 a paper was published analysing various theropod material from Chatham Island, New Zealand, and the deposit they were in was aged to be 61 million years old. The authors of the paper interpreted this as the fossils had been eroded from a Mesozoic deposit and were reburied in an Cenozoic one. However multiple outcrops of the same formation have been found containing more dinosaur fossils, this and considering there is evidence to suggest that this is a bone bed could possibly mean that this is the first evidence of non-a
