  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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

  7. Hello!!! I want to buy some trilobites. The seller send me these photos. What do you think? Fakes, good ones, not good? I don’t know nothing about trilobites... Thank you so much!!!!
  8. So I had been browsing for some new fossils, and stumbled over a nice Moroccan fossil on a seemingly american website. And they're selling this (almost fantastic) fossil, of a part of a skull, allegedly from either a Carcharodontosaurus or a Deltadromeus (Most likely not a delta). But is it legit?
  9. drotops megalomanicus?

    Just curios as to what species this is I looked at phacops but non seem to have such defined bumps for a better word also the eyes don't match up at least not to the ones I have looked at. Again questioning this id because what is exposed so far is rather small 0.86" by 0.80" and the size of the matrix block is 2.51" by 2.34" Also I am prepping this currently so not fully exposed yet don't know if that will hinder the possibility of confirming an id. Thanks Matt
  10. Can anyone please offer an opinion on this? The bone appears to be genuine, as far as I can tell, but all but one of the teeth are added in after. The back of the skull seems to be in the wrong position in relation to the frontal bone - does this imply compositing? Something looks 'off' to me, but I haven't seen all that many skulls like this. Combine that with the low-resolution photos and I thought I'd ask for some opinions. Thank you.
  11. Goulmima Pliosaur tooth?

    Hello, I recently bought this tooth and it was labelled as a Pliosaur tooth. I was wondering if this is true as I haven’t seen many fossils from Goulmima.
  12. Spinosaurus tooth?

    Hello friends, this looks like a spinosaurus tooth to me: is it correct? What's your opinion on this fossil? Thank you very much Alessio
  13. Hello everybody I see non specific mosasaur teeth from morocco all the time but what if I want to purchase a Mosasaurus tooth? How can I tell the differance? The following image is labeled as mosasaurus but how do I know that is true? Thank you
  14. What are these things?

    A friend of mine(yes, it really is a friend, not just me lol)apparently got these in a box of stuff, and they were labeled as being from mosasaurs. He asked if they were coprolites, but i don't know exactly how they were described. I told him no, I don't think any coprolites would be so smooth, even, and without any imperfections(I'm sure there are some like that out there, but that must be pretty rare. A random group of coprolites aren't going to all be like that, I'd imagine). I told him I don't really know and that id ask, but my best guess would be either gastroliths, or nodules. I don't think mosasaurs have gastroliths, but plesiosaurs do, and the ID of mosasaur seems bunk anyway, no matter what they are. As far as nodules, I don't know if nodules are found in that kind of site, so yeah......does anyone have any idea? Oh yeah, they're from Khouribga, Morocco.
  15. A chevron bone? But from what?

    Bought this bone from a private collector some years back. It's a big chevron(?) bone from an unidentified creature, found in the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Anyone who would have a guess at what this could be from? It's obviously some big creature with a chevron bone at that size, so perhaps a large dinosaur or crocodile of some sort?
  16. What clam species are these?

    Hello, I am currently trying to label all of my fossil collection. I bought these fossil clams a few years ago, and I am wondering if any of y’all know more information about these clams. All the information I have is that they are from the Dakhla region in Morocco, and probably Eocene in age.
  17. Trilobite - Morocco

    I picked this up at a market stall in Fes this week. No information other than it is from South of me in Morocco. Because I thought it was sweet and it has a cracking bryozoan around the eyes (which are sadly broken) I think it looks like Devonian matrix and is a Phacopid? Phacops speculator? It is about 6 cm long. (straight line, not including the curve over) @piranha And anyone got any ideas re the bryozoa?
  18. Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probably won't be able to put a genus or species name on each type, but perhaps assigning certain vertebrae to a morphotype might be possible. With that I encourage everyone that has any vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds to share photos of their specimens and post them here so we can use this thread as a sort of library as well as an ID thread that everyone can use to better ID their Kem Kem vertebrae. So please, share your photos! And it might help to number your specimens for easier reference. I will be updating this first post as new information arises with examples to make ID easier. Theropods Spinosaurus aegyptiacus Spinosaurus is known for it's tall neural spines, which are pretty characteristic. Unlike Sigilmassasaurus, Spinosaurus does not have the ventral triangular rough plateau on the centra Spinosaurus cervical vertebrae Spinosaurus dorsal, sacral and caudal vertebrae Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis Sigilmassasaurus is a Spinosaurid that might be closely related to Baryonyx and Suchomimus. It differs from Spinosaurus in that it has a ventral keel on many vertebrae and a triangular rough plateau on the bottom back end. A is Sigilmassasaurus, B is Baryonyx Sigilmassasaurus cervical vertebrae Sigilmassasaurus dorsal vertebrae Indeterminate Spinosaurid vertebrae Not a whole lot has been published yet, so some bones can probably not be ID'd on genus level. Spinosaurid caudal vertebrae From Paleoworld-101's collection Charcharodontosaurids Due to an old paper Sigilmassasaurus vertebrae are sometimes misidentified as Carcharodontosaurid. These vertebrae should be identified on the basis of the original description by Stromer. Carcharodontosaurid cervical vertebrae Deltadromeus agilis better examples needed Abelisauroids Indeterminate Abelisauroid distal caudal From LordTrilobite's collection Abelisaurid dorsal vertebrae From Troodon's collection Sauropods Rebbachisaurus garasbae Not a whole lot is known about this titanosaur, as only a few bones have been found. Notice that the vertebrae are very extensively pneumaticised. Rebbachisaurus dorsal vertebrae Unnamed Titanosaurian mid caudal vertebra Crocodiles more examples needed Kemkemia This crocodile is only known by a single terminal caudal vertebra. Kemkemia caudal vertebra Turtles examples needed Pterosaurs Azhdarchids Azhdarchid (probably Alanqa) posterior fragment cervical vertebra Azhdarchid Mid cervical vertebra Sources Spinosaurids https://peerj.com/articles/1323/?utm_source=TrendMD&utm_campaign=PeerJ_TrendMD_1&utm_medium=TrendMD http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0144695 Sauropods Jeffrey A.

  19. Hi all, Saw this trilobite up for auction, I was wondering how authentic it was? I know that Moroccan trilo's should often be bought carefully, but I don't know how to recognize fakes from real ones. These are all the pictures provided, and I can't see any way to contact the seller. But the pictures still seem decent, so I think (and hope) it is enough. Thanks in advance! Max
  20. So far only known from Ein Yabrud, Ramallah. Lit.: B. Khalloufi, R. Zaragüeta-Bagils, and H. Lelièvre. 2010. Rhombichthys intoccabilis, gen. et sp. nov. (Ellimmichthyiformes, Clupeomorpha, Teleostei), from the Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Ein Yabrud, Middle East: anatomical description and phylogenetic implications. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 30(1):57-67
  21. Hi all, Saw this trilobite pair up on auction. Does it seem authentic? Maybe the spines have been added on (or sculpted on)? Also do you think that the two trilobites were found together like this, or is one of them added to the block? These are all the pictures given, and there is no way to contact the seller. Hopefully the pictures are good enough! Thanks in advance, Max
  22. im looking to see if anyone can id these Morocco fossils i have.
  23. In case anyone's interested, there are two rather nice quadrate skull bones from a Spinosaurus for sale on our favourite auction site. These are definitely quadrate bones from a theropod. And I'm fairly sure they are from Spinosaurus aegyptiacus as well as the morphology is very consistent. Note that the bones are upside down in the photo. It seems it's both a left and right bone. Though I doubt these are associated.
  24. I've bee looking around at different vertebrae but cannot seem to find a match any ideas? A rough guide in the right direction as to what it looks like it could be from? ventral to dorsal measurment are 12mm anterior to posterior is 15mm and lateral left to right side is 21mm Thanks in advance.
