  1. This is actually quite enjoyable finding out which fossils are real and fake. First pic we have a fossil flower stamen from the Green River Formation in Utah. The second piece was quite cheap, but it's from Morocco (Anti-Atlas Mtns.) and it seemed odd to me that the bottom Orthoceras has the same pattern as the matrix below it. But perhaps you have an explanation for that. The third piece is a Ginkgo leaf from the Sentinel Butte Formation of North Dakota. The final piece is a Juvenile Megalodon tooth from Pungo River Formation of North Carolina. Thanks again to everyone who's helped out, I'm
  2. Everyone I've encountered on this site has been very helpful, so thank you. However, I'm in need of more help. For the last year I've been collecting real fossils in the field and selling some to pay for more exotic rocks. In a recent post I found that my Solnhofen shrimp is, if not totally, mostly fake. Now I'm quite suspicious of my entire purchased collection and was hoping you could help me identify fakes. The first two pictures are apparently Priscacara, Green River Formation, Eocene; the next two supposedly Asteroidea, Morocco, Ordovician; the last three supposedly Triassic, Arizona petr

    Bones from moroccan phosphate

    Hello everyone, i saw these two fossils from the phosphate and i am not sure about the type of animal. the first one look like a limb bone (but no idea of the animal) and the secound one like a wing part (maybe from a pterosaur ?). I need confirmation and precision on the identification if someone have an idea.
  5. Hi, This bone looks like a Spinosaur neural spine, but I'm not too sure. Does anyone have an idea what this bone could be? Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone! Got a nice little mystery bone from the Kem Kem here. I think it's a Coracoid bone but I'm not sure from what. I'm leaning Crocodyliform only because that seems to be the most common thing for these random mystery bones but I don't know for sure so I figured I'd seek a second opinion in case it might be something else like a fish bone. It measures 7 cm (2.76 inches). Any feedback is appreciated as always!

    Is this a Pliosaur tooth?

    Hi, I think this is a partial Pliosaur tooth, just wanted to ask.for confirmation. Thanks.

    What starfish is this?

    This fossil is of Late Ordovician age from the Upper Ktaoua Formation at Erfoud, Morocco. It is quite obviously a starfish, so is in the class Asteroidea. The starfish is about 8.5 cm across. I'd like to know if anyone has a more specific id, ideally the genus but otherwise the family or at least the order.
  9. Updated 5/4/22 (in red) Although a lot of this has already been posted on a number of topics, I thought consolidation might prove useful with some additional information. If you're planning to purchase theropod teeth from Morocco's Kem Kem Beds or already have some in your collection check this out. Moroccan theropods are poorly understood and not a lot has been published. Very few articulated skeletons have been found and most are partial and without a skull. There is also lots of mis-information, mostly unintentional, from some dealers but especially with online

    Moroccan Eocene shark teeth and jaw bone

    I recently purchased some more Moroccan fossils, including several shark teeth...I tried IDing them on my own, here are my guesses (scale is in inches; 1 inch = 2.5 cm), am I close? I don’t have much experience IDing Eocene teeth, so I’m not sure. Thanks!!! 1. Otodus obliquus 2. Cretolamna appendiculata 3. Cretolamna aschersoni 4. Striatolamia macrota 5. Jaekelotodus spp. 6. Brachycarcharias atlasi 7. Tooth I have no idea on (had cusps but they bro
  14. First up, I found several Keichousaurus fossils being sold. Amongst them all, I think this is the nicest one. Is it good or bad quality, and what would you pay for it? Second up is what appears to be a crocodylomorph skull from Morocco. The seller claims that it's a Dyrosaurus, but it's clearly not that. It looks nothing like Dyrosaurus, and it would be way too old. I know you can't say for certain just from photos, but how likely is it to be genuine? If it is, what genus do you think it belongs too?

    Kem Kem Claw id help

    Hi everyone! I'm fairly certain there's no funny business on this one, but I don't know what type of critter it could be since I'm fairly certain 99.9% of Moroccan claw pics online are of fakes and the remaining 1% are misidentified. 37.5 mm long 12 mm tall 8 mm wide What do you all think? Dinosaur? Croc? Turtle? Pterosaur? Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always!
  16. I'm at a fossil show and saw this. Might buy it. Is it real?

    What species of Moroccan Ammonite is it?

    Hello everybody: I have recently got this nice specimen of Ammonites from Middle Atlas, Northern Morocco. Seller states the specimen is from the Cretaceous. Sadly, no proper identity is given to me by the seller. I would like to know if anyone is happen to know something about this kind of Ammonites. Thanks in advance, Best regards, Benito. SPAIN.

    Brachiopod from Morocco Ziz Valley?

    Hello! I have a brachiopod that they seller said was a Rhynchonella. And from the Ziz Valley, Morocco Jurassic (Oxfordian). But I can't find any info about it. I have seen similar Brachiopods for sale from Morocco with different age and locations. Does anyone know if these really are Jurassic in age? Sadly many of Moroccan fossils have bad location info . Here are the Brachiopods
  20. I recently have aquired a trilobite and do not quite know the identification. I later identified thinking that it is a Zlichovaspis rugosa trilobite from the lower devonian. I am still having hesistation though and would like someone else's opinion. It has nice detail in the eyes and head plate. You can really see it in the last photo. Thank you

    Morocco shark tooth

    I'm picked up this little tooth a few weeks ago on the auction site, then description was as follows; "A Fossil Sharks tooth from Cretolamna bi-auriculata, from the Eocene age Phosphate deposits of Morocco." Wondering if anyone has any thoughts, opinions or confirmation on the ID. Thanks!
  22. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry

    Pliosaur or Polycotylid tooth?

    Hi, Just wanted confirmation about whether this tooth from Morocco is Pliosaur or Polycotylid. The crown is somewhat small, but there are still striations on it. I lean towards Pliosaur but I'm not 100% sure at this point. Thank you!

    Kem Kems feathered dinosaurs?

    Recently I started collecting dinosaur teeth from Morocco and it has completely refueled my childhood fascination with these awesome creatures. I work as an illustrator (amongst other things) and have taken up the idea of making an illustration of the Kem Kem dinosaur fauna. Before I start sketching, I need to know how these creatures looked like. One main thing I need to do is decide what animals I will give feathers. Here are my thoughts. Species I want to include: Spinosaurus aegyptiacus - enormous, probably semi-aquatic animal, so probably no feathers Ca
  25. Hello, These two 6-8 inch Spinosaurus Claws were purchased online. They do not appear correct at to me. They seem unnatural a bit and kind of feel like some type of lotion on the surface, Maybe the lotion feel is just to help transport?s5.zip s2.zip s3.zip
