Anybody here have a collection of fossils? I have a couple of little pieces that I've picked up from the ground:

But my pride and joy is the Trilobite imprint I carted home one day as a kid:

I wanna start a collection. I've been thinking about buying those supposed Spinosaur teeth off of eBay to kickstart, but I'm worried they are fake.

I saw that too. It's pretty cheap actually. I think it's fake/replica.

I've got a small collection myself, all geniune, handpicked Swedish fossils. All around the Ordovician-Silurian period I think, all from Öland and Gotland except one trilobite which is from Kinnekulle.

(Pretty poor quality as I took the photos with my phone)

My favorites are the trilobite:

And the shell:

So I will post pics of my stuff when I get the chance.

However I think with the closing of JPLegacy I would like to see if its possible to try to move on from dinosaurs to holocene mammals in fossil collecting to some extent.

I dug up half of the fossils I have whilst the other half consists of fossils purchased from my local museum. My favourites are my two hand-sized Trilobites and a beautifully-preserved Ammonite that dates back to the mid Jurassic.
