  1. Bought this a year ago for $48. Assumed the little bit of detail in the eyes meant it was authentic, but I'm not sure anymore. Seems like the spines are fabricated at the very least. Would love opinions since I'm still pretty green.
  2. African theropoda

    lakinlongrichspinosaujuvenilmoroc1-theropafricadinosontogs2.0-S0195667118302052-main.pdf Rebecca J.Lakin, Nicholas Longrich: Juvenile spinosaurs (Theropoda.Spinosauridae) from the Middle Cretaceous of Morocco and implications for spinosaur ecology. 3,77 Mb Recommended, given authors and source publication (Els**ier's editorial policies are strict and thorough, as such things go.) Note: co-coccurence of adult and juveniles. Enjoy, dinosaur lovers.
  3. Hi, just wanted to check if this fossil for sale is likely to be from a theropod. It is a ilium pelvic bone just under 20 inches in length. From what i can gather, theropod ilium's are wide and thin?. Thanks.
  4. Sorry this is my first time in Morocco and I’ve never fossil hunted abroad if possible could any1 tell me what the teeth are (apart from the mosasaur one) and if the 2nd photo is a fossil or not
  5. How should I prepare this piece

    How should I fix the broken tooth and stop the rock from crumbling also any help on identifying the fossils would be appreciated (apart from the mosasaur tooth
  6. I picked this up before even knowing that people could or would fake mosasaur jaws. I've done the best I could could but this rookie could still use the help. This mosasaur piece is from Morocco and that's all I've got. Thanks everyone
  7. Trilobite ID

    Dear TFF, This trilobite ( max. 36 mm) is probably from Erfoud area, Morocco. I believe it will be recognisedby our Trilobita experts. Thank you very much.
  8. Hello I am not sure whether the entirety of this fossil is real as it was brought in Morocco where a lot of fossils are fake and I noticed the gap between the crown and the root is filled with the same stuff around the fossil. I think the crown is real but maybe the matrix and root have just been added on? Thanks
  9. Hi all, I was hoping for a few opinions regarding the percentage of restoration on this 35cm+ Acadoparadoxides sp. If anyone can narrow down the species, that too would be appreciated. Thanks! Positive side:
  10. Please take a look at this post:
  11. Mamites nodosoides

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Mamites nodosoides Morocco Hi got this of my good friend and yours @Tidgy's Dad
  12. Hey? I bought this Spinosaurus tooth from my local gemshop, and I was wondering on if it is real or not.
  13. I am looking for hopefully complete or near complete drotops, and other large Moroccan trilobites. In exchange I have lots of stuff, shark teeth from all over, ammonites from Europe etc. please message me if you’re interested
  14. Moroccan Theropod Vertebra

    I'm calling in the Theropod experts for this one! I'm looking for an ID for this vertebrae, or whether the seller's ID is correct, or wishful thinking. The ID/Location information is below and is exactly as it is shown online by the seller. Since there's SoOoOo much conclusive research on Moroccan Theropods this one should be a breeze . Can this vert truly be labeled as anything more than Theropod indet? Currently the seller is labeling this vert as belonging to Rugops Primus. For size reference this vert is 4cm long. I don't own this fossil so I am currently limited to the couple of side view shots provided by the seller. Information: Cretaceous Theropod (Raptor) Tail (Caudal) Vertebra - Rugops primus Tegana Formation, Aptian Kem Kem Basin, Morocco, North Africa Creataceous - 100 Million Years Old
  15. Dimensions: 185mm long Location: Atlas mountains Jurassic outcrops, Morocco I'm having trouble identifying this partial fossil bone. It's only smallish piece with some significant old broken sections but it still has a pretty distinctive blade-like shape and the internal structure visible at the end breaks is interesting. My amateur impression is that it's too straight for a rib, it's asymmetric so not a chevron, so I was thinking maybe a fibula, or perhaps an ischium or scapula. Any input welcome.
  16. ID ammonit from Morocco

    Hi everyone, does anyone know this ammonit from Morocco? I don't have other info. Thanks
  17. Just wanted you guys thoughts on this Denovian trilobite from Morocco. Is it authentic or does it any restoration?
  18. Spinosaurus or Crocodilian jaw?

    Hi, wanted to ask for opinions about the identification of this partial jaw, offered to me as a Spinosaurus jaw (or Spinosaurid), but unsure on how to tell the difference between a spinosaurid jaw and a crocodilian jaw. Thanks.
  19. 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? Dinosauria: - Deltadromeus agilis - Rebbachisaurus garasbae - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus - Sauroniops pachytholus - Spinosaurus aegyptiacus - Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis - Dromaeosauridae indet. - Titanosauridae indet. - Abelisauridae indet.

  20. When platecarpus lived

    Hi! Ive just noticed that many people says different things when it comes to the time when platecarpus Lived. Many would say "84-81" million years ago, but some said it even lived till 73 million years ago. What would you consider is the correct answer?
  21. Sorry for my poor English. I inherited a large trilobite from Morocco. Size 22 x 34 cm approx, weight 6 kilos. Does anybody know what species it is?
  22. Trilobite probably from Morocco

    What is this trilobite (11cm long) possibly from Morocco that a relative has?
  23. Kem Kem skull element/thing

    I recently purchased this item. It was described as a piece of dinosaur skull. I never trust these IDs of course, but on the other hand, I didn't know what it was. Crucially, it was affordable, so I bought it anyway. It has arrived today and is quite impressive, in its way. The question is; what is it? This is the main boney face of it. The other side is pure matrix with no shape or distinguishing features, so I didn't photograph it. Note the bone protruding from the bottom. This thing needs a LOT of prep. The bone has a strange honeycomb structure, full of large empty pits. This next bit (also seen at the bottom of the picture above) interests me, because it appears to be identical to the substance I asked for help with here: It is literally right up against the bone, on the left. MYSTERIOUS! If anybody has any ideas what this object might be, I'd love to hear them. So far I've narrowed it down to: Crocodile (that's what I associate any honeycomb style stuff with, rightly or wrongly) Dinosaur Elemental kaiju summoned to save the earth during time of strife Extremely big fish Thank you!
