Single Hadrosaur egg on matrix, measures 6.5" long, 5" wide, 5" high, and has a LARGE circumference of 19".  It weighs 7.75 pounds.  This size puts it in the top 4% size for this species.  Therefore, we know it was laid by a fully grown, mature female who had already reproduced during previous breeding seasons, possibly an alpha female.  This specimen is in better-than-expected condition, ranking 8.0 Choice on a scale of 1 to 10. $425 SOLD

Genuine Hadrosaur Dinosaur

Fossil egg specimens above are Hadrosaurid, Late Cretaceous (84-71 million years old), collected in the Xixia Basin, Henan Province of China.  Fossil eggs are found in China, the Badlands of the Western U.S., and in Patagonia.  The egg becomes covered with soil relatively quickly after being laid, which protected it from scavengers, climate and oxygen.  Ground water flowing through the sediment passed through the egg and allowed minerals to precipitate into the egg, which eventually turned it to stone, though keeping its original shape (like petrified wood).  It is possible, but unlikely, that the bones of the embryo may be found inside, as it may not have developed enough before its death.  A special addition to any fossil collection!

One of our customers, Tom (on far left of second picture) brought this possible dinosaur egg in to be examined by the Smithsonian fossil experts (Bob Purdy) at the 2002 Ocean Lakes Fossil Fair in Myrtle Beach SC - he suggested Tom take it to New York to the museum there for final verification, but it passed their initial test!  Cool!

 

OVIRAPTOR DINOSAUR

TWO EGG NEST

(GENUINE, NOT A REPLICA)

OVIRAPTOR 70-88 Million Years Old

Weighs 11 pounds, measures 7-1/2" long x 7" wide; eggs measure 7-1/4" long each, x 2-3/4" wide

Oviraptor is a genus of small Mongolian theropod dinosaur, first discovered by the paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, and first described by Henry Fairfield Osborn, in 1924. Its name is Latin for 'egg thief', referring to the fact that the first fossil specimen was discovered atop a pile of what were thought to be Protoceratops eggs, and the specific name philoceratops means "lover of ceratopsians", also given as a result of this find. In his 1924 paper, Osborn explained that the name was given due to the close proximity of the skull of Oviraptor to the nest (it was separated from the eggs by only four inches of sand). However, Osborn also suggested that the name Oviraptor "may entirely mislead us as to its feeding habits and belie its character". In the 1990s, the discovery of nesting oviraptorids like Citipati proved that Osborn was correct in his caution regarding the name. These finds showed that the eggs in question probably belonged to Oviraptor itself, and that the specimen was actually brooding its eggs.

Oviraptor lived in the late Cretaceous period, during the late Campanian stage about 75 million years ago; only one definitive specimen is known (with associated eggs), from the Djadokhta Formation of Mongolia, though a possible second specimen (also with eggs) comes from the northeast region of Inner Mongolia, China, in an area called Bayan Mandahu.

When living, Oviraptor was one of the most bird-like of the non-avian dinosaurs. Its rib cage, in particular, displayed several features that are typical of birds, including a set of processes on each rib that would have kept the rib cage rigid. A relative of Oviraptor called Nomingia was found with a pygostyle, which is a set of fused vertebrae that would later help support the tail feathers of birds. Skin impressions from more primitive oviraptorosaurs, like Caudipteryx and Protarchaeopteryx, clearly show an extensive covering of feathers on the body, feathered wings and feathered tail fans. A tail fan is also indicated by the presence of a pygostyle in Nomingia, suggesting that this feature was widespread among oviraptorosaurs. Additionally, the nesting position of the brooding Citipati specimens implies the use of feathered wings to cover the eggs. Given the close anatomical similarity between these species and Oviraptor, it is highly likely that Oviraptor had feathers as well.

Oviraptor is traditionally depicted with a distinctive crest, similar to that of the cassowary. However, re-examination of several oviraptorids show that this well-known, tall-crested species may actually belong to the genus Citipati, a relative of Oviraptor. It is likely that Oviraptor did have a crest, but its exact size and shape are unknown due to crushing in the skull of the only recognized specimen.

Oviraptor was originally allied with the ornithomimids by Osborn due to its toothless beak. Osborn also found similarities with Chirostenotes, which is still considered a close relative of Oviraptor. In 1976, Barsbold erected a new family to contain Oviraptor and its close kin, making Oviraptor the type genus of the Oviraptoridae.

Annette, our customer from here in Myrtle Beach, brought in what she believed to be a dinosaur egg, found in Arkansas near Lockesburg AR where a few remains of the Arkansaurus fridayi have been found.  Our local chiropractor, Dr. Causey, x-rayed it for us..though there's no embryo, there is a definite thickness around the edge that appears to be shell.  We'll be contacting the New York Museum to speak with a dinosaur egg expert there to get authentication, if this is indeed what it is.  An incredible find, if so!  Thanks for sharing, Annette!

DROMAEOSAURUS ALBERTENSIS cast
 

11/6/10  Here's our new "baby", a Dromaeosaurus albertensis dinosaur skeleton museum cast, measuring 6'9" long x 34" tall.  A superb specimen any museum or private collector would be pleased to display.

We are proud parents to a Dromaeosaurus albertensis (Therapod) dinosaur cast (also called a "Drom") we acquired from a Minnesota collector.   The "baby" is 6'9" long x 34" tall.  Here is Glenn in our living room showing it off after it arrived this morning and we reassembled it.  The base is purposely unfinished, the new buyer can spray-foam, papier-mache or fabric-cover it as needed for exhibiting in its final resting place. Drom  will be placed under Mrs. Cave Bear so we can still walk through to the kitchen, truly a Monster Strait to walk each day.

Dromaeosaurus was a genus of Theropod dinosaur which lived during the Late Cretaceous period (middle late Campanian), between 76.5 and 74.8 million years ago, in the Western United States and Alberta, Canada.  The name means "running lizard". It was a small carnivore, about 2 m (6.5 ft.) in length and 33 pounds in weight.  Its mouth was full of sharp teeth, and it had a sharp "sickle claw" on each foot.
