  1. was sent these pictures by a Moroccan dealer i was wondering about it being a sauropod vertebrae since it has a very small foramne, any thoughts or input would be nice and if so could this be from the only described species rebbechasaurus ?
  2. Rhynchodercetis sp

    From the album North Africa

    Given to me as a gift, this is Rhynchodercetis from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco; possibly R. yovanovitchi, although I cannot make a definitive identification. The specimen is complete, although the state of preservation is not superb; the skull, vertebra,ribs, and rays in the fins are all visible, but not in fine detail.
  3. Mosasaur jaw sections

    Two Mosasaur jaw sections arrived today. They are marked "A" & "B" in the photos. Each is approx. 4.5 to 5 ". Please look them over and comment. Including, but not limited to; accuracy of ID info, life position of each section (upper/lower, right/left), how you would proceed with additional prep (if any). Info from the seller: Halisaurus; Upper Cretaceous, Maastrichtian; Ouled Abdoun Basin (phosphate beds); Oued Zem, Morocco.
  4. I know it is possible to buy and collect specimens from usa and morocco but what other countries is it possible to do this? I see specimens from Uzbekistan from time to time my interest is mostly dinosaur fossils such as teeth and bones.
  5. I obtained a rather attractive triobite today (my first one) but knowing that these fossils are often tampered with to some degree or another, I decided to put a little acetone on it to see if I could expose any restoration or remove any coatings that may have been applied (I want it for macro photography purposes, and coatings would ruin that). I covered it in acetone, left it for a few minutes, then rinsed it off. Now, instead of being jet black like it was originally, it looks silvery grey - like this: Of all the things I expected, it turning grey wasn't one of them. I thought black or brown were the natural colours. I don't really think the whole trilobite can be a fake, because for one thing it's too flawed, and for another the eyes have the tiny, tiny lenses. Have I just impacted upon a coating without removing it, or what? Any suggestions welcome!

    What do you think about this ?
  12. I have a project on the go at the moment sorting through 1000s of fossil shark teeth from Morocco to make artificial tooth sets. Thanks to everyone who helped supply them. Well - I realised the actual process from the teeth being extracted to the end buyer is a bit of a mystery to me. What do the deposits look like in the quarry? What does the average collector go through to collect the teeth? What is the typical chain of transactions that occurs on the way out of the mines and Morocco. I've heard that you can buy outside the mines, and I've also heard that the locals are very protective of their mark-up so may like to protect the chain of transactions so everyone gets a cut. I'd love to hear about what people know about this - especially those who have visited Morocco. I would also love to see photos of the mines and of people collecting the teeth. I've found one or two photos on the net, but I bet there are more out there...... It would add to my experience of collecting and handling these fossils. Thanks!
  13. ID please !!

    Hello my friends I find that this morning and i think is interesting for us so anyone know what it is and his age ?
  14. Hi everyone, I've put this post in the Fossil ID area as I think it is a suitable place for it. I'm in the process of identifying 1000s of Moroccan sand tiger teeth and I've been accumulating all the information I could find. There is no one piece of literature that does it all. I hope to update this through time and get feedback from those more knowledgeable than myself that all the information is correct. Let me know if I have made a mistake and I will correct it. I hope this will be a useful resource for everyone. First, here is Arambourg 1952: http://hybodus.free.fr/maroc/Arambourg%20%20&%20alii%20Vert%E9br%E9s%20fossiles%20des%20gisements%20de%20 (Copy and paste into your browser) Now, there have been a few revisions since 1952. Here is what I could find: Name in Arambourg 1952 New valid name (if applicable) O. whitei Arambourg, 1952 Striatolamia whitei (Arambourg, 1952) O. macrota premut. striata (Winkler) 1874 Striatolamia macrota (Agassiz, 1843) O. robusta var. africana Arambourg, 1952 Carcharias robustus africanus (Arambourg, 1952) O. hopei s./sp. atlantica Arambourg, 1952 O. koerti (Stromer) 1910 Brachycarcharias koerti (Stromer, 1910) O. tingitana Arambourg, 1952 Carcharias tingitana (Arambourg, 1952) O. speyeri Dart. et Casier, 1943 O. substriata Stromer, 1910 Carcharias substriatus (Stromer, 1910) O. substriata mut. atlasi Arambourg, 1952 Brachycarcharias atlasi (Arambourg, 1952) O. vincenti (Woodward) 1899 Brachycarcharias lerichei (Casier, 1946) O. winkleri Lerice 1905 Note that O. stands for Odontaspis. If the space in the "new valid name" column is blank, then the name in Arambourg 1952 is still valid.
  15. Anyone have an idea about whats this ?

    I find this today it looks like a fruit it was interesting for me so olease if someone know something about this tell us what is it. King regards Salomon

    I just find this yesterday i guess is a horn or bone or something like that. I couldn't upload more photos they told me max is 3.95 mo i have a pretty good quality i will see how to make it less.
  17. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. I estimate I spent no more than $430 in total for this small collection. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  18. Fossil Bone ID

    Hi Below please find some pictures of bone fossil from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco. I am not quite sure what I am looking at... I think it may be from a dino (sauropod phalanges?) or crocodile. Any ideas?
  19. Kem Kem Vertebra

    Is it possible to ID this vertebra? Thanks ...
  20. What are these?

    I bought these a few years ago at a local show. They were mixed in with a bunch of small Otodus and sand tiger shark teeth. I don't remember if the vendor said where they came from and I didn't write it down, but I think Morocco is likely. I have no idea what these might be. Any possible id would be greatly appreciated.
  21. fish/reptile jaw section?
