  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Hello everyone, I am just curious if this Elongatoolithid is genuine. The owner states on his/her account that it would come with a certificate of authenticity and has had it for over a decade. It looks surprisingly real, though I am cautious as I have heard of how many fake Oviraptor/Citipati eggs there are.

    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:
  5. 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
  7. First up, the seller of this egg stated upfront this is a replica, so this isn't a scam warning. Here, we have an oviraptor egg that could fool even experienced collectors. It looks realistic because it's made out of real oviraptor eggshells. It's even covered with a coating of matrix. This is common practice; I've seen hadrosaur eggs are faked this way, with plaster mixed in to make the egg seem round and heavy. For reference, here's a real Oviraptor (Elongatoolithus sp.) that's been professionally prepped. Oviraptor eggs are commonly faked, so four ways t
  8. Oviraptor (elongatoolithid) eggs from Henan, China (an old collection). 65-72 mya. Eggs are 5.75 and 3.75 inches long, 1 and a half eggs. Have been prepared and stabilized. Thoughts on the veracity?
  9. Hello, I am new on forum, my name is Gregory. I have a few mammal fossils on my collection and was looking at dino eggs (I know nothing about them). I visited a few of your topics talking about them. I saw one on online and was wondering if this is a real one or a faked one. size : 16 cm X 7 cm.
  10. Hi i came across this Egg label as oviraptor egg from China look quite real to me( but not quite sure tho) what do you think about this? thank in advance!
  11. My 3D print of a full size Citipati oviraptor skull. 3d files came from: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/life-size-citipati-oviraptor-skull-and-cervical-vertebrae. I had no idea how to paint when I started this. A lot of Google searching on how to paint and experimentation. Also printed Life size baby T-rex skeleton, which is about 7' long. I started 3d printing about a year ago when my wife and kids bought me an Ender 3 Pro for Christmas. Pretty soon I will have my own dinosaur museum in the house.
  12. At first glance it looks real to me--mainly because it's not in the best condition. I figure if someone was gonna fake it, they'd do more than partially cover the egg 17.9cm x 7.8cm x 7.6 cm Described as an Elongatoolithidae egg. Thanks. I know it's not the best, but it's affordable enough so I don't have to dip into the budget I've set aside to get some verts and teeth.
  13. Hey guys, I saw this listed as a oviraptor egg, seller claims to have taken it to a museum to have it examined. This looks a little different from other oviraptor eggs I have seen and I don’t really see signs of embryo. I would appreciate any input on it. It was found in Texas

    Oviraptor egg?

    Hey guys, I saw this listed on online, the seller said she thinks this is an oviraptor egg, what do you guys think?
  15. seen this for sale and to me it looks genuine but i am wondering about its authenticity, its location has no red flags as is Washington (not Cincinnati) any input would be appreciated.
  16. Hi. I start to collect fossil for 10 months. And this is my first collection, Oviraptor's egg. I also made a show box for this fossil. When I feel tired, I will look at my collection. That's the great thing for relaxing. Thank you. By the way, My name is Cris. Nice to meet you all.

    Oviraptor eggs

    Hi All, hope everyone had a great Christmas. I hope someone can help, I recently received a quantity of egg shells, originating from China. They are from Oviraptor supposedly. My question is that some have nodes, others have ridges, some have something in between. Is this just something that differs from individual to individual or from species to species? A search on Google images show a selection of both nodes or ridges so I am none the wiser.
  18. Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to collecting and have gotten most of my fossils so far from one website that I think is reputable. I am trying out a website that I have purchased one fossil from already because I am interested in getting a dinosaur egg. It is a little pricey, so I just wanted to get some reassurance that it's the real deal before I pay for it. It says in the description that the original owner bought it 30 years ago and that its location of origin is unknown, which made me a little suspicious. I would greatly appreciate if I could get a little direction on this one befor
  19. Hi all, please be careful whenever you purchase Chinese vertebrate fossils or dinosaur eggs, especially turtles and birds. While some of these may look laughably fake, a search on purchase history reveals that these fossils have been sold over and over again. No prize for guessing which auction site these fossils were sold. I notice three devious techniques used by these sellers: 1) Issuing a certificate, claiming it's been examined by experts etc - Certs mean nothing, unless they are provided by actual museums 2) Selling some real fossils - I've
  20. ¡Hola! Compré este huevo de dinosaurio de China. El huevo mide 20cm y tiene una forma perfecta. Quiero prepararlo para resaltar la cáscara de huevo (tiene mucha cáscara de huevo) ¿Qué opinas sobre su identificación y calidad? Muchas gracias! Hello! I bought this dinosaur egg from China. The egg measures 20cm and has a perfect shape. I want to prepare it to highlight the egg shell (it has a lot of eggshell) What do you think about their identification and quality? Thank you! https://drive.google.com/
  21. One of my favorite fossil types. Dinosaur eggs come in all shapes and sizes — from an oval as small as a thumb, to a sphere as big as a basketball. These fossils are often faked by the hundreds, if not thousands, in Chinese factories (China is also the world's richest source of true dinosaur eggs). However, there are also many natural-occurring objects mistaken as dinosaur eggs such as concretions or even fortuitously-shaped rocks. Despite these hurdles, dinosaur eggs remain one of the most desirable of all fossils. NOTE: Dinosaur egg and eggshells, by their nature as an ichnofossi
  22. Hello! Well following the thread of the other post I found 3 eggs of better quality but much more expensive ... What do you think is better preserved and is of better quality? Right now I can only choose one ... Thank you so much.
  23. Does someone know what dinosaur this claw is from? Tarbosaurus? It is 62mm in lenght and from the Djadokhta Formation, late Cretaceous .
