Dinosaur & Reptile Fossils

The lasting legacy of creatures that roamed the earth eons ago, dinosaur and reptile fossils are rare treasures to behold. Dinosaur fossils for sale today are part of a rich history of study and appreciation that stretches far back into the ancient world.

Though ancient historians make note of fossils, it was not until the 17th and 18th centuries that their study became codified. French naturalist Georges Cuvier helped usher in the practice of paleontology, the scientific study of fossil records, which great improved overall understanding of the dinosaur age.

The remarkable history of these fossils combined with their relative rarity makes the market for dinosaur and reptile fossils a competitive one. Very few specimens are unearthed in their entirety. To acquire a dinosaur or reptile fossil is to capture a piece of history, the oldest history known to our planet.


Quick Facts

  • Herodotus, scholar of the 5th century B.C., was one of the first to write of marine animal fossils

  • The smallest dinosaur fossil on record was uncovered in 2011. Part of the Achiornis genus, the tiny birdlike creature was only 15.7 inches in length
