  1. Trying to see if there are any good fossil hunting locales for my brother(Dakar) and my sister(Jacksonville). I know of the Peace River in Florida. But I was wondering if maybe the beaches in these areas or anywhere close(within an hour or so) might be hotspots to check out. Thanks for the help!

    Mosasaur tooth crowns ID

    Hello, Thanks so much everyone @Troodon @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon @Praefectus for your help with the mosasaur jaws last time. I was wondering if you could help ID the following teeth crowns? They're said to be from the Atlas mountains of northern Africa. I feel like there's quite some variation but I can't tell if that's just due to heterodonty or a difference in genus/species. Or perhaps as I found out last time, some of these are "throat teeth"? Lot 1. Lot 2. Lot 3. Thank you!

    Moroccan Bones

    Hey all, I acquired a large box of bones from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. I don’t have information on them besides that. I suspect a large number of these are crocodilian, but there’s an assortment of other things as well. All told there’s probably 60-90 bones in the box, so I’m going to avoid putting too many in a post. All measurements are in inches. set A: set B: set C: set D: set E: Thanks all for any help!

    Identification, mammal teeth

    Hello ! For my first post I want to show you some mammal teeth. I don't have a lot of informations about them, probably from North Africa. I don't know their age but all are mineralized so not that recent. I can add the sizes if it's very necessary. Some of them are very characteristics so I hope that an ID is possible. There are I think Rhinocerotidae, maybe Camelidae and others... I'm not good with mammal, all the infos are welcome ! Thanks for your help !
  8. The Kem Kem Beds are full of poorly understood Dinosaurs but the isolated material that wind up in collections are beautiful. The Beds consist of three formations: Ifezouane, Aoufous and Akrabou. I believe the first one is your primary Dinosaur producing layer in the Cenomanian age. The teeth that we see bombarding us at shows and online give us clues to the spectacular dinosaurs that roamed that region. Claws give us another perspective and by associating them to other regions we obtain more hints of what they looked like. A Dinosaur that no one needs introduction is Spinosaurus. I

    Baby t-Rex or close relative

    Baby t-Rex (or close relative) fossilized into metal; this is one of my best finds, it is the complete body of a male baby t-Rex? animal who has a second unknown animal, a dog-like creature with a mammal face, gripped fiercely in its jaws. There is no separating the two fossils and who would ever want to. Both animals have been fossilised or petrified into an Iron/PMG/Gold metal alloy material – a very heavy, durable, and extremely hard compound that has preserved the specimens in fine life-like detail. The specimen was collected in Africa and was freed from solid rock by blasting to build a r
  10. Hey! I’m thinking about buying this possible Eocarcharia dinops tooth. I want to make sure that it is completely authentic and correctly identified. It does say it is from the Elrhaz formation in Gadoufaoua, Niger, but I just want confirmation (if possible because identifying theropods from Niger can be quite difficult) that this indeed an E. dinops tooth.

    Elrhaz Crocodylomorph Fang?

    While I was sorting through my collection of croc fossils, I came across these Elrhaz Formation teeth I bought 6 months ago and never did figure out what they were. I assume they are croc and not some kind of fish, though I could be wrong. I've never seen these apart from the one source I purchased them from. I've been told they were Sarcosuchus, then Kaprosuchus, then Suchomimus. Pretty sure it's not Sarcosuchus, and the images I can find of Kaprosuchus don't seem to match. Suchomimus, I don't know, but my gut feeling is, no, I've seen dozens of Suchomimus and fake-Sucho crocs, an

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of

    Moroccan Abelisaurid tooth?

    Hi! I've been eyeing these supposed Abelisaurid teeth from Morocco (Kem Kem beds?), but I'm unsure if they are what they're labelled as. Are these two Abelisaur teeth? Or are do they belong to another theropod in the formation? (Mostly being confused with how one differentiates KK "raptor" teeth from true abelisaur teeth) Tooth A: Images 1 to 4 Tooth B: Images 5 to 8 I've read @Troodon's fantastic guide to Kem Kem teeth. However, as a very amateur fossil collector, I'm only able to identify but the only feature I am able to identify as abelisaurid is the mesial side being curv

    Niger Theropod (+Fish) ID

    I recently purchased Niger fossils, and as expected, provenance was poor. I know it's ill-advised to buy fossils without good provenance, but I decided to take a gamble here. There was a sliver of hope in getting provenance as the seller could contact their source in Niger, but alas, outside Agadez is the best they got. The first fossil was sold as possible Kryptops, and 2nd just Theropod. I also got fish fossils from the same group. Elrhaz, Irhazer II, and Tiouraren appear to be the 3 formations in that region, and most fossils from Niger you often see for sale are sup

    Something mysterious

    I have wondered about this one for several years. It is from the east side of Lake Turkana, in Kenya but I wasn't at the actual spot from where it was picked up, so I don't know anything about the specifics of the location. This was one of at least a dozen specimens that I saw. The other side looks the same as what you can see in the photo. I have wondered if it could be a stromatolite but the shape is odd for that. Could it be some sort of evaporative feature? It is the only one I have, so I haven't tried cutting it open. I'd love to hear some opinions.

    Proboscid Tooth

    I found this Proboscid tooth on a riverbank in Kenya. Is it a recent one from L. africana or something older? It is about 9 or 10 cm long.

    Fish (?) Vertebrae from Central Africa

    Hello TFF members, My grandparents run an NPO and frequently travel to developing countries. A couple of years ago they went to some country in Africa and brought back a bunch of miscellaneous bones. They gave me 3 pieces from a basket of a bunch of pieces, but I didn't really care for them because I thought they were modern bones. I've recently realized that these pieces are, without a doubt, fossilized and would love to be able to ID them to see what they are. Unfortunately, I do not know the specific country/location where these pieces were found. My best guess, base

    What kind of jaw is this?

    Can anyone tell me what this is? All I know is it’s from Kem Kem. My best guess is some type of crocodile. What else even has all those nerve channels besides crocs and the spinosaur family? I think the shape(top&bottom view) looks similar to pancake croc jaws, and I’m pretty sure there were a number of others with that type of jaw, but I don’t know when and where they were, sooooo.......does anyone have any thoughts about it?
