  5. New stegosaur from North Africa

    A new paper is available online: Susannah C.R. Maidment; Thomas J. Raven; Driss Ouarhache; Paul M. Barrett (2019). North Africa's first stegosaur: Implications for Gondwanan thyreophoran dinosaur diversity. Gondwana Research. in press. doi:10.1016/j.gr.2019.07.007. Adratiklit is significant as the oldest stegosaur from Africa and the second valid stegosaur from the Bajocian-Bathonian interval, considering that Isaberrysaura has been recently classified as a stegosaur given its mix of stegosaurian and neornithischian traits. If you aren't aware, the Xiashaximiao and Shangshaximiao Formations that have yielded Chungkingosaurus, Gigantspinosaurus, Yingshanosaurus, Huayangosaurus, Chialingosaurus, and Tuojiangosaurus are now considered to be Oxfordian-Kimmeridgian in age. By the way, is there a copy of the paper I could look at?

  8. What kind of fish/shark might this be?

    Saw these at a fossil shop, and as far as I can figure they look like fish bones with some shark teeth and mosasaur teeth here and there. They’re from Morocco I think. Any thoughts?
  9. What mosasaurus is it ?

    What mosasaurus is it? I bought it as Globidens phosphaticus but I find the bone is from another kind of Mosasaurus. And the seller stick them together. Can someone tell me what specie does the bone belong to? Thanks. Picture 3 is what it looks like at the begining.
  10. Can anybody tell what this vertebra is from? I believe it's from Kem Kem. *would this be a rib cage vert?
  11. Crocodile tooth

    I have this crocodile tooth from Morocco Kem Kem Beds and was hoping if somenone could tell the species
  12. Hey guys, A friend of mine just bought this turtle skull from Khouriba, Morocco and was wondering if it had any reparations/restorations or fake parts. There is one eye socket considerably larger than the other one but I don’t quite know what it means. I don’t see any very obvious red flags but this type of fossil is very often faked. What do you guys think? Here are some pics. Thank you for any input Regards.
  13. I've been wavering back and forth as to whether this is a Carcharodontosaurid tooth, or possibly something else? The serration shape doesn't immediately scream Carch to me, and the mesial carina extending 2/3 down the mesial face would usually exclude abelisaurids from the mix (along with the concave distal edge). There does appear to also be a "pinch" at the base, judging by the lighting in the photo and what little can be seen of the cross section (unfortunately, this is the only photo available). Any input would be great to help me put this one to bed!
  14. Kem Kem Beds questions.

    Hello all, Like if told in a post last year, I have to make an essay for school by the end of the year. My subject is 'the paleodiversity of the Kem Kem beds' (but in dutch ofcourse). Now I have a few questions where I can't find an answer on. There might follow more question throughout the year. - Is there any Bahariasaurus species officially recorded at the Kem Kem Beds? I didn't find any paper on them from the Kem Kem so I assume they are only use commercially. Only described in the Bahariya formation in Egypt I guess? - Does anyone know what a Spinosaurus aegyptiacus premax tooth looks like? - I made a species list with all the species I found from the Ifezouane fm. and Aoufous fm. (I don't work on the Akrabou fm.). Does it looks complete or do you know any gaps? Or are there any names that are not longer used?

  19. Moroccan Mosasaurs

    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 most of the material on a market belong to oued zem and sidi -daoui zone , even you will finding them under khouribga denomination, nothing come from khouribga... of courses , mosasaurs belong to the level 3.and 4 different species are studied by scientists of the French Museum of Natural History in Paris . today the last record of different mosasaurs species is at list 18 and probably 20. (personal opinion ) listed like below : †Halisaurus. arambourgi .(Bardet, Pereda Suberbiola, Iarochène, Bouya & Amaghzaz, 2005) †Halisaurus.sp not described yet †Halisaurus walkeri .(Lingham-Solier, 1998) ( i used this name temporarily, until one studie about this mosasaur show-up ) †Prognathodon sp Dollo, 1889 †Prognathodon anceps ex leiodon anceps slender form massive form perhaps sexual dimorphism ( personal opinion ) †Prognathodon solvayi Dollo, 1889 †prognathodon hudae kaddumi 2009 †Prognathodon. currii (Christiansen & Bonde, 2002) †Eremiasaurus heterodontus , gen. et sp. nov sp ( AR.

  20. Bipedal or quadruped Spinosaurus

    Following the debate about whether spinosaurus was quadruped and could actually swim and if it was bipedal and couldn't I came across a theory that S. aegyptiacus was bipedal and S. morrocanus was quadrupedal what are your thoughts on these theories?
  21. Hi all, i have seen some trilobites and i'm sure they are real but there are any restoration on them?
  22. Hexanchus microdon (Agassiz 1843)

    From the album Pisces

    15mm. long Eocene From Khouribga, Morocco
  23. Igdamanosaurus aegyptiacus (Zdansky 1935)

    From the album Vertebrates (other than fish)

    3.5x2.3m. Tooth Maastrichtian Late Cretaceous From Oued-Zem, Morocco Otherwise known all over the internet as Globidens aegyptiacus, but this was revised by Lingham-Soliar back in 1991.
  24. I just bought 2 shark teeth , sellers said they are both from Morocco. Can you guys help me identify the shark species. The bigger one , is this from Megalodon ? Size: 5 * 4.5 cm Front view Back view Side view and the necklace one Size: 3 * 1.8 cm Front view Back view
  25. Good examples of reconstructed vertebrae can be seen on the Web at hefty prices. In this example the seller properly identifies it just has a theropod and says the repair is "using the filler method " and it's an investment grade fossil. It's impossible to tell what has been done to this vertebra but what is evident is that the processess have been added and covered using the " filler method.. We do not know if the processes belong to the centrum, my guess probably not, or if the front and back are from the same vertebra. All the sand fill tells you how much repair has been done to the specimen. Here the seller is offering an associated pair of tail vertebrae from a Spinosaurus. In my opinion they don't look like theropod vertebra more like croc but I really don't know. Again the excessive sand matrix on the sides is a red flag for problems. Another Spinosaur vertebra being offered. Think I've seen this one before. The processes have been added and we do not know where from in fact the short ones don't even look like processes but peices if bone. The centrum may be Spinosaurs but identifying vertebrae in the Kem Kem without known processes is very problematic. . This is what caudal "tail" vertebrae looks like from a Spinosaurid.
