  6. Kem Kem Quadrate?

    I've had this tiny piece of bone from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco for a while. And initially I hadn't looked at it in detail and kinda dismissed it as a random piece of fish. On a whim I re-examined this piece under the microscope and noticed it has an articular surface on it that has a weird shape. The shape is so weird, the only thing it reminds me of is the jaw joint on the quadrate. So could it be a piece of skull? And then I noticed it has spongy structure on the inside of the bone. So that reminds me of reptile bones. I've compared it to most of the known types of reptiles from Kem Kem. It does seem to vaguely resemble many of the quadrates of different animals but it's still quite distinct. The closest match I could find were the quadrates of turtles. But then I compared it to three known turtles from Kem Kem and those also don't seem to match exactly. Only the general shape seems similar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kem_Kem_Beds I did find some good reference though. Two of the same genus but different species: http://digimorph.org/specimens/Galianemys_whitei/ http://digimorph.org/specimens/Hamadachelys_escuilliei/ Paper that includes two of the Kem Kem turtles: http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/handle/2246/5824 I can't seem to find a good match. Does anyone have any ideas? Ventral? Dorsal? Anterior? Anterodorsal? Posterior?
  7. Moroccan Tooth

    I found this tooth in a box full of Spinosaurus teeth for sale at the Denver Gem and Mineral Show. Noticed it was curved and has small serrations under a loop so doubted that it was Spinosaurus so I bought it. It comes from a dealer/digger well known to me from Morocco. When I pointed this one out to him he agreed it wasn't from a spino, thought maybe crocodile. What do you guys think?
  8. Theropod Vertebra

    From the album Reptile Fossils

    Cervical vertebra of a theropod dinosaur (possibly Spinosaurid) with series of scratches on one side. It is likely that these scrathes are gnaw marks from different animals due to the different sizes of the marks. Location: Kem Kem beds, Morocco Age: Cenomanian, Upper Cretaceous

  23. Anhanguera

    I am the very fortunate winner of the wonderful artwork by Forum member, Charlie AKA fossilized6s. Here is the Forum thread that will give a view of the artwork. ++++++A pair of "Old Devils" for AUCTION++++++ - Auctions to Benefit the Forum - The Fossil Forum Prior to this acquisition, I had purchased a pair of teeth IDed as Anhanguera sp. After winning the auction I received a third, larger tooth also attributed to that ancient flyer. The teeth came from two different dealers, both located in Spain. The info they provided was identical for all teeth. Labeled as: Anhanguera sp. Middle Cretaceous, Albian-Cenomanian Kem-Kem Basin, Tegana fm, Red Sandstone Beds Taouz, South Morocco, Sahara Desert I have mounted the teeth in small plastic "jewel boxes" and will affix them to the frame of, or display them near the drawing. My ID question is how accurate do you judge the provided ID info? Here are the teeth. The rule is mm. The small ones especially have beautiful surfaces. On the larger tooth striations may be seen toward the root aspect. All the teeth have a subtle surface "dimpling." Close examination of the photo of the smaller teeth reveals this feature somewhat. Any comments as to the veracity of the given ID will be appreciated.
  24. Stromatolites

    Hello forum members Do different stromatolites have classifications/individual Latin names? I can't seem to find much on the web. I've been given these stromatolites which came from Morocco and I'd like to label them. Thanks John
