Every few days I get blanket statements in the comments on my blog or Facebook posts like this one.
"You should not buy or sell scientific /archeological artifacts. It is amazingly destructive to human knowledge."
Never mind, the post being commented on and FossilEra has nothing to do with archeology, but rather fossils (paleontology). To put some context the statement, it was made on a past about this Huntonia trilobite collected at Black Cat Mountain in Oklahoma.
The Black Cat Mountain material of a perfect example of where commercial interest has heavily benefitted science, human knowledge and education. Read more...
After operating out of my house for much of our first year, FossilEra is now getting moved into it's new warehouse space. We had outgrown my house several months ago, to the point where I was moving furnature into a storage unit to clear space for more inventory. Unfortunately, the search for nearby warehouse space took much longer than anticipated thanks to the booming wine tasting room, brewery, micro-distiller industry in the area hogging it all. We stiill have a prep lab to build out, but we're finally up and shipping from the warhouse.
The horned Triceratops may be one of the most iconic dinosaurs in the world. Any kid who is infatuated with dinosaurs will instantly be able to recognize a picture of Triceratops. Fossilized teeth from this dinosaur also represent one of the most commercially available and affordable types of dinosaur teeth that can be purchased. A few reasons for this:
1. Triceratops was a herding dinosaur and there were lots of them. Think Buffalo on Serengeti (or North American plains two centuries ago for that matter) but 66 million years ago.
2. There had lots of teeth, up to 800 in their jaws at a single time.
3. They shed their teeth frequently as they became worn from grinding the coarse plant material that they ate.
4. Compared to bones, teeth are much less delicate so are more likely to be fossilized.
Trilobites are an extinct marine animal that dominated Earth's oceans for 270 million years long before the first dinosaurs. There were over 25k known types some of them with very ornate shells covered in spines. This huge variety and their alien looking appearance makes them very appealing to collectors. We have a huge variety of trilobite fossils for sale ranging from inexpensive, common species to amazing museum quality specimens and everything in between. Buy fossils from us knowing you are getting authentic specimens, at the best value.
The Megalodon was a massive prehistoric shark that grew to lengths of up to 60 feet and went extinct 1.5 million years ago. It had giant teeth that could reach 7 inches in length (though only a handful have ever been found that large). For comparison the largest great white shark teeth did not reach 3 inches in length. Fossils of it's teeth can be found worldwide and are both impressive and terrifying. We have a wide selection of authentic Megalodon fossils for sale, starting around $10 which make great gifts, to collector quality teeth priced at $1,000+.
Fish have been around in the fossil record for over 500 million years and are one of the most diverse animals on our planet. Fossil fish are some of the most aesthetic and collectable fossils out there. FossilEra has a selection of beautiful fish fossils for sale from the Green River Formation of Wyoming as well as several other locations around the world. Not only do these fish make for beautiful displays but they are tremendously interesting from a scientific and historical perspective.
