    Eggs?

    Found these in the woods in st. Clair County Alabama. they were in a coal deposit I dug up. very small deposit. filled a five gallon bucket with coal. they vary in size. I hope they are eggs. some have fragments of shell on them and some do not. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. 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
  3. Hello, I've been after an egg for a while, and this one caught my eye. It's sold as Spheroolithus. 5.5 inch x 4.41 x 2.36 Seller messaged saying it is from Henan Province, China. Being sold by a Taiwan seller--not from China itself. Apologies for red line--it's blocking the sellers name. Thanks for the help
  4. Hello does this egg look real . Looks like its missing some shell and looks not to be prepped. Possibly an oviraptor egg? Is 18 cm long Thanks

    Is this an egg?

    Any clue what I have here? I think it's granite but have been told it's some kind of egg
  6. Hi team! I would really appreciate some advice on some eggs. Apologies if pics of the eggs aren’t high enough quality. Listed as Elongatoolithidae eggs. Any advice would be great. Thanks

    Is this legit? Seems too perfect. Egg.

    My father in law found this while poking around on our land were clearing in Wimberley, TX. I’m blown away by it, it’s so perfect I am perplexed. Is this real? I don’t know of anyone who’s been out on this previously non-cleared property that could have planted anything. What do y’all think? IMG_6501.MOV

    Some sort of egg?

    Interesting oval, multi-layered rock found on lakeshore in southern Minnesota. Could this be a fossil?

    Egg, Nodule, or Other?

    After having discovered more than a few "dinosaur eggs" throughout my life, this is the first that has prompted me to overcome my cynicism and ask for help in identification. I am assuming that it is very possibly a nodule of some sort - but looking at the details has me curious. Thanks in advance for your patience with my limited knowledge. I found it in a ravine near my house in Pittsburgh, PA, USA that has exposed layers of coal, shale, slate, and sandstone. I found it "as-is" and I have not removed any material. It is approximately 8.5cms x 5 cms. There appear to

    Dinosaur egg?

    I can't remember exactly where or when I acquired this , but I think I found in second hand store a few years back. Thought it was petrified wood but found images of eggs and thought maybe, it's not wood after all. Me and my rock hunting buddies would really like to know.

    Is it an egg?

    Ok so I'm just asking if I have a rock or something else, and should I cut it open or leave it whole?
  12. Hello I'm interested in any insight as to what this may be. It was found today March 2021 in my back yard heavily wooded area while I was clearing a trail to ride small ATVs I raked through a ft of overburden and sticks etc revealing the dirt below and found half dozen stone edges protruding through the surface. In an effort to make the trail smooth I began to extract the stones using a spade type shovel after having dug out the stones I picked each one up to throw off the trail and when I grabbed this I realized it was not the same weight actually near weightless and hollow slight rattling no
  13. Hi I found this sphere near Nelson Ledges in Ohio. It is almost a perfect sphere but has a small dividing ledge at the circumference. About two inches. Very hard. I really have no idea, just know it’s a fossil. Sue

    Unhatched bird fossil??

    Hi folks, I've found this object which, to my untrained eye, looks just like small unhatched bird. Would like to here your opinions! I've found it in my garden (NL)... I can post more and better pictures here later, for now I hope the image below suffices.
  15. Good night All, please try to check attached egg photos. There are 2 hadrosaur eggs and one oviraptor egg. Do you thing all this material is fake. Some person is trying to sell it to me. Do you thing all this have red flags? Best regards. Alvaro.
  16. Hello!! I’ll get right into the backstory. I bought these together, labeled as “Tyrannosaur Eggshells”! Unfortunately they came with no other information They are (as you can see from attached photos) pretty small chunks. I was taken aback by how cheap they were, I’ve never bought dinosaur stuff before though so I’m not sure if that’s a normal price. What you can’t see in the photos: -has glittery and small crystal-like structures that shine in the light. Mostly on the sides of the shell. -Not particularly heavy. Seems to be lighter than what a rock their size w

    Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide

    The Advanced Dinosaur Egg Guide Please share this with those who have egg questions. When possible, technical terms were avoided or defined. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but it is always important to do your own research. This guide is merely a snapshot of information taken from many scientific publications. I am not an expert on eggs, rather I just love sharing what little I have learned over the years, what science has learned over the years. For an overview on how to spot a fossilized dinosaur egg and the sizes of eggs, see the basic guide:
  18. Dear fossilfans, Could anyone have a look at this Oviraptor egg from China? Is it 100% real, and how much should I pay at maximum? Thank you for helping me out

    Poor, poor Oviraptor

    Anyone here remember in their childhood being taught that Oviraptor (egg-thief) stole dinosaurs' eggs, and ate them? Same here. As most of you will know, it turns out, this dino was no criminal, it was just trying to be a good parent, brooding over it's eggs! Here's the fossil that led to it's misidentification: You can see how it was speculated to have been stealing the eggs, but, based on other specimen covering their own nests, and CT scans that showed an embryonic Oviraptor inside the eggs... It was being a good momma, protecting it's young from the sandstorm that buried both it an
  20. Sadly, this is something I don't have any provenance on. I think its probably from the Inferior Oolite of Dorset or at least South England. It came in a job lot of other Ammonites and I didn't pay it too much attention until I saw a small inclusion - around 3.5MM round. I've taken some photos with my digital 'microscope', and some with my camera too. You can spot the odd fella at the end furthest away from the flat cut base. I'm sure this is nothing; I haven't seen anything quite like it before though. I am curious if anyone has any ideas - I haven't seen anything sim
  21. I suppose this perfect elephant bird egg is fake. But what was it made of?

    ID for Egg shaped item?

    Hi all, this comes from south america, a friend claims this is an egg but I am not so sure about it. What do you think? Thanks a lot!!!
  23. Is this a genuine egg? Of a small dinosaur or reptile? It was found in Ganzhou of China, Cretaceous Formation.

    4 Inch Fossilized Dinosaur Egg

    Possible dinosaur egg? What are your thoughts?
  25. Hello_There

    Possible Egg

    Found in a wash of an Upper Cretaceous formation in the Four Corners area of the United States. I guess it is some sort of fossilized egg but would like a second opinion. In the formation, fossils from former terrestrial, aquatic and arboreal life is routinely found. The specimen is 6.3 cm long, and due to some compression at the time of fossilization is sort of shaped like a Brazil nut around its middle.
