    More than 45 years of experience!
    It's sometimes extremely difficult, some fakes are expertly done, others are easy to spot, one would have to examine them personally to be sure, but I've seen plenty of fakes very like these turtles and Chinese law prohibits the export of real ones, but not fakes!

    There are many hundreds of horses here, they plus donkeys and mules do most of the goods transportation in the medina. They are kept in the house gardens or courtyards or in green areas on the edge of the city, but i don't have quite enough room.
    They're nice animals, i'm very fond of horses. :)

    @bambam I keep seeing a glimpse of a post of something about more rocks. Yet I can't find it. Am I missing something.

    Here are photos of my turtle "fossil," Adam. I bought it when i was working in New Zealand just over 20 years ago.
    It weighs 9.5 lb (4.3 kg?), is 10 inches/25 cm long and 9 inches/23 cm wide at the widest point. The black "scutes" on top are a little crumbly, and when I pick it up today, I heard a slight creaking sound under one of the black "scutes." I've read that counterfeiters will attach alligator parts to the fossils to try and make them look real, and have always wondered about the scutes. @Tidgy's Dad

    Glad that you did!
    Most appreciated.

    There's a market for this stuff, most people can't tell the difference, real ones are very rare so it's not surprising, sadly.

    Great (beach) pictures - I’ll need to do some Google Earth looks there. So, where’s a good name/location/beach name to zoom in on? Xmas lights still up? Interesting Water Crisis banners too. Tks for sharing.
