  1. Morocco ordovician trilobite

    This little spherical trilobite is given to me as a gift by a French friend in an mineral and fossil exhibit in Beijing, who said it must be a Morocco ordovician species. Is it possible for me to get to know more here?
  2. Saw this online, it looks suspicious (but i am no expert) and i thought i would post here for confirmation. It is over 6 and a half inches long.
  3. Saw this for sale, and was wondering if these are Plesiosaur vertebra's?. The fossil is from the Goulmima region in South - Eastern Morocco. Thanks.
  4. About a year ago I came across a fossil hunt report in Morocco and fall in love with the trilobites. From another website, I saw picture of Morocco crinoids plate and I just wish I have them. Last week I found a trip in groupon to Morocco for 15 days. Then I find there are many fossil hunting tours in Morocco from 8 to 15 days. I would like to ask if anyone using the tour for fossil hunt? Are they good and if anyone has a favorite tour company to suggest? I am appreciate any information and help. Thanks.
  5. Cretaceous turtle, Oued Zem

    Hey everyone I ordered this piece last night, it will probably arrive in the course of this week. According to the listing it is a turtle bone from the cretaceous phosphate layers of Oued Zem in Morocco, but the exact species wasn't identified. But unfortunatly I am not very familiar with Cretaceous sea turles from Morocco, I just found it a nice piece to add to my Oued Zem display. So does anyone know which turtle species can be found in the cretaceous phosphate layers of Oued Zem? The only species that came out while googling was Lytoloma elegans, but I am sure some of you might know other species that lived in Oued Zem during the Cretaceous? Thanks in advance!
  6. There is quite of bit Kem Kem dinosaur material coming on the market and some of it quite good. Will try address the identification issue on some items so at least you will know what your bidding on. This appears to match quite well with a Spinosaurid ilium, seller calls it a pelvic bone. Looks quite nice, complete with a concern are the areas circled in white. Not sure it's bone or matrix. Seller does comment on filled fractures and some are visible but that should not detract from the piece. What the seller is offering here is a Spinosaurus phalanx and claw toe bones. What I believe you have here is a Spinosaurid foot claw and a carpal (hand bone). So think about this listing as two separate bones not associated in any way. This is a listing of a Spinosaurus complete finger with claw. What I believe you have are 3 carpals from a Spinosaurid that are completely unassociated and are not a good match as a composite. Hard to say much about the claw other that it appears to be a foot claw of what cannot determine with photos provided. Again like the one above if you're interested in this bid it as 4 separate items. Seller has this as a Spinosaurus phalanx toe bone. I find it difficult to call this one since its a partial but looks more like a carpal. I dont think you can ID this to any specific critter, not much diagnostic and we know so little. Seller is offering these as 4 Spinosaurus phalanx toe bones. The two on the left look like carpals, probably from a Spinosaurid. The one on the far right is a phalanx but it's hard to determine from what dinosaur. The second from the right to fragmented to say. Seller here has 4 Spinosaurus phalanx toe bone for sale. They are toe bones and may be from Spinosaurid but who knows there are lots of other theropods in this region and identifying isolated bones is very difficult. If interested they should be identified as theropod indeterminate. Being offered as a Spinosaurus phalanx toe bone. It might be from a Spinosaurid but have same comments as above
  7. Got this fish from a popular fossil site for their new years sale. The longer I look at it the more red flags I am seeing. It was listed as unidentified, upper cretaceous-lower Turonian stage, Asfla Goulmima Morocco. All my other fish are either Green River or from Lebanon so I don't have anything to compare it to. First flag the entire top of the fish looks carved from the matrix. Second the matrix is riddled with bubbles on all sides and the back. Last once I borrowed a black light the matrix is dotted fluorescence throughout as well as a border around the fish. Am I just ignorant to how these are prepped or is my gut right?
  8. Scabriscutellum furciferum

    From the album Trilobites

  9. echinoid ID help please and thank you

    Hi all Can I please have some help on these beauties. I purchased them as a job lot and I did get a good bargain. Unfortunately the only info I got was they are from Morocco. The first two are I think Goniopygus meslei ? The third I don’t know. 1. 2. 3.
  10. Rebbachisaur Tooth

    Tooth of a rebbachisaurid sauropod.
  11. Abelisaurid tooth

    Acquired from a British fossil dealer in January 2019.
  12. Carcharodontosaurid tooth

    Acquired from a British fossil dealer in November 2018. Labeled Carcharodontosauridae indent. due to the presence of at least two carcharodontosaurids (Carcharodontosaurus saharicus and Sauroniops pachytholus) in the Kem Kem Beds.
  13. This supposed real Cretaceous croc from Khourigba, Morocco is up for auction and, uh, isn't this just a painted cast with some real croc teeth thrown in?
  14. I just got this orthoceras fossil from the atlas mountains if Morocco. I was wondering if they was a formation associated with it? I've got the age, but not the formation, if any. Thanks, Tyler
  15. What are these?

    I was just wondering what the species for the trilobites are but I’m not sure what the 3rd thing is as it looks like an ammonoid or nautiloids from most angles but it doesn’t have an aphycyus it has an operculum so is it a devils tonail thanks
  16. I got this tooth mixed in with a bunch of small Moroccan stuff and it struck me as something a little different. To me it bears a striking resemblance to Palaeocarcharodon, without the serrated blade. It doesn’t look right for Otodus or Cretalamna to me, it’s too delicate and thin, very much like Palaeocarcharodon. Any thoughts or suggestions on it identity would be appreciated. Happy newyear!

  17. Cretaceous Isopod from Morocco

    Just in time for the Holidays... The mysterious isopods from Gara es Sbâa, Morocco, have recently been described: Corbacho, J., Morrison, S. & Alonso, M. 2018 First Mention of Unusuropode castroi Duarte & Santos, 1962 (Crustacea: Isopoda) in the Upper Cretaceous of Gara es Sbâa Lagerstätte, South-Eastern Morocco.

  18. Deltadromeus tooth?

    I've been looking at this tooth which is labeled as Deltadromeus agilis from the Kem Kem Basin by the seller. I know labeling teeth as Deltadromeus is iffy due to the lack of skull material, so does anyone have an idea of a possible classification for it? I've tried looking at Troodon's Kem Kem theropod teeth guide but haven't managed to make an ID. Any help would be appreciated!
  19. Hello all, I’m looking to purchase these Mosasaur jaws for a pretty steep price. From what I can tell from them, they look legitimate to me using what I have learned previously from here. But I just want some second opinions by people who have much more expertise than I. These pictures were taken by one of the shop employees, so I apologize for the lack of angles and close shots. Thank you all so much!
  20. The title explains it but for a little more prepping or starting prep need to know roughly what it is before I can be comfortable in my work appears to have a rather odd placed general spine on the right and the head is not shaped like a holladrops. Thanks in advance Matt
  21. Moroccan ammonite

    Hi, Father Christmas broughted this cute huge ammonite he found in Morocco, but he forgot its age an name. Any ideas ? Each square of the floor is 2 cm wide.
  22. Hi all, i contacted a seller from morocco and he sent me these trilo photos. Watching fine details like eyes etc they seem real but i'm newby and i prefer to ask you. Can you also tell me the average price for that species? thank you
