  1. So I had been browsing for some new fossils, and stumbled over a nice Moroccan fossil on "paleodirect.com". Is there anyone who's bought from there before or can confirm that they sell authentic Moroccan dinosaur fossils? Cause it's a rather expensive one I'm aiming to buy, but always gotta be careful with buying fossils from places online.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. im looking to see if anyone can id these Morocco fossils i have.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. African theropoda

Note: co-coccurence of adult and juveniles. Enjoy, dinosaur lovers.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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:
  20. Please take a look at this post:
  21. Mamites nodosoides

    From the album Bobby’s ammonites

    Mamites nodosoides Morocco Hi got this of my good friend and yours @Tidgy's Dad
  22. 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
  23. Hey? I bought this Spinosaurus tooth from my local gemshop, and I was wondering on if it is real or not.
  24. 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
