Skeletons – Psittacosaur

Probably the most desired of all fossils is that of a complete dinosaur skeleton!

Here Triassica presents that coveted and ultimate display piece!

This spectacular Psittacosaur dinosaur, was prepared by ourselves in the United Kingdom.

Dating to the Cretaceous, this example was discovered in the Jiufotang Formation, from the famous Liaoning Province, N.E. China.

This superb Dinosaur measures 31″ (79cm) – the skull has exceptionally well preserved teeth.

This extraordinary specimen of P. Meileyingensis is 100% original fossilized dinosaur skeleton ie. no bones whatsoever have been taken from another specimen, to complete the dinosaur.

Of scientific interest – rarely preserved remnants of carbonized skin tissue can be seen, particularly on the skull and sacrum (pelvis).

Recent discoveries have determined that Psittacosaurs had exceptionally thick skin – very much like that of sharks.

The carbon remnants are  scattered in small clusters with larger patches up to 3/4″!

Vertebrae (with dorsal & lateral processes) comprise separate sections with individual bones fixed together. The vertebral column is retained as fossilized.

Supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity – we guarantee the genuiness of this dinosaur!

This really is a genuine dinosaur – not a replica, model, not a cast – not made of plastic, resin, plaster – it is a real fossilized DINOSAUR!

The variant coloration, with darker areas is due to the outer bone layer (periosteum) not having preserved & does NOT represent fabricated parts.

Indeed every bone exhibits a proliferation of multiple fractures caused by the pressure of overlying matrix – even the tiny spinous processes, claws etc have such fracturing & lamellar bone exposure – CONCLUSIVE that this fossil is genuine.

This all real fossil must NOT be confused with overseas prepared fabrications made of resin, crushed bone & glue or similar.

Now this real dinosaur can be yours – one of a select few worldwide to own a dinosaur!

And the price for such an incredible, real dinosaur – not as much as you may expect?

BUY IT NOW, USD $4499.00!

US $705.00 

Oct-25-08 11:59:13 PDT


Sinornithosaurus (derived from a combination of Latin and Greek, meaning ‘Chinese bird-lizard’) is a genus of  feathered Dromeaosaurid Dinosaur  from the Lower Creataceous of the Yixian Formation in China. It caused a sensation because it was the fifth of the non – avian dinosaur discovered by 1999. It was collected from the Sihetun locality of western Liaoning. It was in Layer 6, lower (Chaomidianzi) Yixian Formation, Jehol Group.

I am starting my auction at a considerably lower price than what I paid for it a few years back. I aquired it from a reputable dealer in Arizona and can testify to its authenticity.

 Item will be shipped in a wood box securely packed due to its fragile state. I will not be able to ship internationally.

The fossil Measures19 inches by 15 and weighs approximately 20 lbs. The actual length of the dino is appx 32 Inches. There has been some minor repair done to the rock which supports the fossil. But all the toes and parts are present.

Ich verkaufe einen originalen Dinosaurierabdruck in einer Sandsteinplatte, die Platte ist an den Seiten beschnitten worden, der Abdruck wurde in Niedersachsen gefunden und war ein Geschenk an mich, die Maße sind ca 44 x 37 x 5 cm, der Abdruck ist auf den Fotos schlecht wiederzugeben, ich hoffe man kann es aber trotzdem erkennen, es handelt sich hier um keinen Abguß oder eine Nachbildung, dieses Stück ist original. Das Auktionsgut kann abgeholt werden, oder ich verschicke es innerhalb Deutschlands für 10 Euro, der Rest der Welt auf Anfrage. Bei mir handelt es sich um einen Privatverkauf, deshalb ist der Umtausch ausgeschlossen! Ebay bezahle ich und Porto der Käufer, gemäß Ebay.

  1. Wow! There are some wondeful fossils here – thanks for a great blog!

    Commento di Shelly Ainsworth | ottobre 27, 2008

  2. I don’t trust the authenticity of any Chinese fossils. Some Chinese are so good at faking fossils, that even the experts can be fooled.

    Commento di Fern | ottobre 27, 2008

  3. Sure some chinese fossils are fake, but I do not generalize this.
