We know your love for everything antique runs deep and even if it doesn’t, adopting a hobby as intricate as fossil collection is nothing less of a passion fueled by determination. As fellow fossil hunters, we have had our fair share of combing the Earthen soils in search of beautiful antique fossils and it pains us to know, that a lot of fake fossils out there have been doing its round off-late. As someone who vouches for authenticity, this makes us really sad. But don’t worry, we won’t let you end up getting excited over a fossil hoax. While our...

This Discovery Made in 2018 Shook Reptile Evolution Theories around the Globe 

If you thought cockroaches were indestructible throughout volcanic eruptions and the great extinction, let’s revisit that thought one more time! If you’ve found yourself combing the web in the search of reptile fossils for sale, this will be a good day for all the reptile and reptile fossil lovers out there. Somewhere around 252 million years ago, an event called ‘The Great Extinction’ wiped away 90% of the biodiversity that called Earth their home. While our ferocious dinosaurs couldn’t make the cut, someone else did. Researchers and scientists had concluded in the past that almost 70% of terrestrial vertebrates lost their...

Mosasaurus; King of the Cretaceous Seas Related closely to monitor lizards, and snakes, Mosasaurus was not a dinosaur, but an aquatic lizard that evolved to become the undisputed king of the seas, back when the seas made up 80% of livable space on earth.  Dwarfing the land carnivores, Mosasaurus grew up to 80 feet long, weighing 8 tons (think tour bus).So how do you become the biggest, the baddest, the top carnivorous predator?  Well, you keep what works and toss what doesn't.  Over time, you will evolve to be so in tune with your environment, that you are destined to...

Is Nessie a Plesiosaur?

Is Nessie a Plesiosaur?

If you ever look up information on Plesiosaurus, you can't help but notice all the references to the Loch Ness monster.  But aren't we stretching just a little too far to think a prehistoric creature of this size could have survived when most other "mega stars" from the late cretaceous period didn't?  Like the Mosasaurus, Plesiosaurus was not a dinosaur, but an aquatic lizard.  And thank goodness, because if they never came to the surface to breathe, perhaps, the legend of Loch Ness would never have come about.  For tragic lack of tourism, the economy of the Scottish highlands could...

Green River Formation Fossils

Green River Formation Fossils

One of the most important fossil sites for understanding the Eocene is found at Green River, located in western Colorado, eastern Utah and southwestern Wyoming in the United States. During the Eocene, this region was located at much the same latitude it is today, though global climate was more equable. Therefore, the climate in which the organisms lived differs somewhat from that of the present-day western United States. The fossils, especially plants, found at this site indicate that the climate was moist temperate or sub-tropical, with temperatures ranging from 15 to 20 degrees Celsius. In addition to the plants, another...
