Hello everyone this is my first post on the fossil forum.I’m 16 year old girl with autisum that loves fossils and I need help Identifying a fossil I got at a fossil/gemstone shop in South Dakota.I think it may be the rhino species Hyracodon.I also have a another fossil I got from the same place and I think it may be fossil horse or oredont tooth.So I would really appreciate it if someone can help me identify these.please and thank you.
Hi, all. I'm looking to make my first decent fossil purchase. Until now, it's been nothing but rough trilobites and a large ammonite of questionable authenticity. It was cheap and I like how it looks so I'm not concerned. If it is real, they clearly overdid it on cleaning it up. Anyway, I found this oreodont skull online. Any thoughts on authenticity? My gut says real but with lots of restoration. In the first pic, the area below left from the eye socket looks way too smooth. Same with the area below the other eye socket. I figured this part was all fabricated. Also, the upper canines appear to be a little too intact. Any guidance from the experts would be greatly appreciated.
