  1. My dinosaur fossils

    Hello friends. I am new to this forum and I would like to show you my teeth and dinosaur claw so you can help me identify them, tell me if they are repaired and tell me what their value is. I hope you like them.
  2. Is this carch, dinosaur for that matter, or something else?
  3. Hi, So i have another question. Just saw this on our favourite auction website (no surprise there), listed as a Carcharodontosaurus dorsal. It is 9.25 inches long and not sure exactly what diagnostic features to look out for. Can anyone help narrow down what it could be. Also is there any red flags to watch out for - the seller says there are some glued and filled fractures but wondering if anything has been fabricated (looks almost too nice). Thanks.
  4. Hi everyone, The tooth below is being advertised as a Pathological Juvenile CARCHARODONTOSAURUS Tooth on the popular auction site. Is this legit? I have my doubts... Please let me know your thoughts on this. I am curious to see what people think. Seller says Pathological teeth are not common and tend to be caused by infections during the animals lifetime and that the tooth itself has unusual depressions, narrow tip, twists and shape to it. Its 23mm and the seller says it is clear this Carcharodontosaurus was easily under 1 year old...
  5. I this a real or fake tooth? It looks legit to me but this I am not very familiar with this species. Also the description states it has glued fractures. How does that effect the specimen? Thank you
  6. Carcharodontosaurus Iguidensis?

    Hello please can you advise if the attached is a carcharodontosaurus iguidensis tooth. Been told it was found at the Echkar formation, Niger. cheers Paul
  7. Carcharodontosaurus tooth repair

    Had a Carch tooth come in the mail recently that got pretty banged up in the case. I was a little alarmed when I first looked at it, but there were even more small pieces when I opened up the case. A little patience, a few toothpicks, and a bit of PaleoBond and it is not looking so bad though! One thing I have found useful in gluing small pieces back together is that if you get a toothpick a little damp on one side, it will temporarily stick to the piece you are trying to glue. Makes it a lot easier than trying to get it in place with your fingers. Another thing, be really careful with your fingers and glue. I have *almost* glued my fingers to teeth I was fixing a number of times. It is easy to do working with small pieces.
  8. I recently thought to myself, how would one distinguish Moroccan raptor teeth from juvenile Carcharodontosaurus teeth? Please share your thoughts on this.
  9. I bought this tooth from a antique mall when I was back in Virginia for a bit, and while the tooth has quite a lot of info and is in good condition, before I try to add it anywhere here. I wanna know if this tooth is real or even from a different species. (Which I highly doubt)
  10. From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    Distal serration density is almost 3/mm, for typical Carcharodontosaurus it is ~2/mm. However, I also compared it to my other juvenile wide-crown Carch teeth and it seems that 2.7-3/mm is typical for juveniles.
  11. T-rex teeth?

    Hi guys! I recently acquired two large theropod teeth from a reputable mate who is a geologist in the US. He had acquired a 30yo collection from a Harvard professor and these teeth were labeled as T-rex from Wyoming. I have showed pics of them to mates who believe they are Carcharodontosaurus. I trust my mate, but I do believe it's possible the specimens were mislabeled. My mate says the chance of that is very slim however. Is there any way to tell if they are Carcharodontosaurus or T-rex?
  12. Kem Kem Vertebra

    Is it possible to ID this vertebra? Thanks ...
  13. I bought this 3.5" Carcharodontosaurus tooth on a certain auction site recently for $650. It looks real (and not a composite) to me, but the color does seem a bit strange in a few places. I'm sure it's just a natural pattern and I'm (slightly) worried over nothing but I have to ask. Does the tooth look dyed to any of you? If so, it was VERY carefully done but this is my first dinosaur tooth and I haven't really seen enough to be completely sure. The seller has 100% positive feedback with a lot of reviews. First three photos are indoors with flash, last two are outside. Indoor photos show the proper color (on my monitor).
  14. Hello! Good morning to all my friends from my favorite forum ! Unfortunately my English is not very good, but I would like some help, please, for this fossilized tooth. I know there is no publication of any fossilized skull, and unfortunately it is rare to find publications on the fossils of Moroccan teeth ... But I believe this tooth does not fit with a Carcharodontosaurus. By the morphological characteristics, it fits more with a Dromaeosauridae family. What do you think? Hugs to all!
  15. Hi everybody, I moved my attention to this item, the price is around 550 USD. I would like your advice if the tooth is real and if the price is too high. Thank you all Greetings

  18. Dinosaurs and Other Reptiles

    From the album My Collection

    This is one of the shelves in my display case. It features what little dinosaur material I have along with material from other reptiles (mosasaur, keichosaurus). There's also a branchiosaurus in there for good measure.
  19. Hey guys this is my first tooth purchased. I bought it from a fossil website because I thought that would be a safe bet with my lack of experience. I know I overpayed for the tooth, I payed $150 for the tooth. After receiving the tooth and actually holding it, the tooth appears to seem completely reconstructed. I just wanted to know some opinions, some spots almost appear completely covered with glue.
  20. The theropod landscape of the Kem Kem deposits continue to be more muddled with new discoveries and research but that should not surprise anyone. I've made several post about multiple Spinosaurid and Carcharodontosaurid in the Kem Kem and it continues to be supported by recent publications. The attached paper describes a femur that supports the concept that Abelisaurid's were in the Kem Kem. We are seeing teeth...so that's good. The paper however looks at the region: Figure 2 below, included in that paper, identifies the main theropod fauna of the region. The abbreviation KKCA under Morocco stands for Kem Kem Compound Assemblage. Please note that under KKCA there are two Spinosaurids mentioned Sigilmassasaurus and Spinosaurus indet. The paper concludes that there is to much ambiguity in the material studied to assign it to Spinosaurus aegyptiacus and further reevaluation is needed. Boy that sure puts an arrow through Ibrahim's Spino redesign. It also states that Kemkemia auditorei, paper attached, may be a crocodyliform or like the paper suggest a spinosaurid. The figure also shows two Carcharodontosaurid: Carcharodontosaurus and Sauroniops. Also Rugops is shown exclusive to Niger. More changes will come and hopfully in some lifetime we will have answers. So if you want to follow proper convention all Spino and Carch material should be identified has indeterminate but if you have that need to have a species name that's okay no one will know.

  21. Show me your Fossil Collections!

    I am new to this forum, and I was pleasantly surprised with the friendly and immediate, helpful, educated responses I received when I asked for help ID-ing dromaeosur teeth! Thank you Troodon and Runner64 for your help! This seems like an active, educated forum where lovers of prehistoric life can gather to discuss fossils, and the like. So, I would like to show off my fossil collection, and discuss things about the small amount of material I have in my personal collection! Feel free to show me your collections as well, I would love to see them! So without further ado, on to my fossils!
  22. I just got this strange tooth that's almost 3.5" long that I assumed it came from a Cacharodontosaurus. But upon closer inspection when I got it the shape of the tooth doesn't look flattened nor blade-like but seem to be very bulky unlike typical Carch teeth I have seen. So I was wondering if this is a special positional tooth that doesn't fit the standard shape of normal Carch tooth? It's also slightly bent and twisted as well, not sure if that's natural or some form of pathology. The previous owner thought it's a Deltadromeus tooth but that doesn't seem likely since Deltadromeus teeth (or those theropod teeth attributed as) shouldn't be this big, but I could be wrong. What's are you guys opinions on this?
  23. Delta, Dromie and Carch are some of the most commonly offered by dealers and collected by many enthusiasts, but I am surprised to find that little has been written about how do you really distinguish these three teeth from one another, especially when they are in small size - in this case I am refering to 1" and below size where the 3 of them look very similar to the untrained eyes. This is especially even more complicated when it comes to Deltadromeus agillis tooth which from what I gathered, shouldn't really technically be accepted to really exist, and should be ideally labeled loosely as Moroccan theropod, yet they are very common in the collectors market, but when asking how can you really tell if they are not Moroccan dromaeosaur tooth or simply a young Carcharodontosaurus tooth, nobody seem to be able to conclusively tell. The reason I am creating this post asking this question is because I just acquired a couple of new small Moroccan teeth that although have been labeled as Deltadromeus, but I can't be certain if they are really Dromaeosaur or young Carch teeth: Specimen A: Specimen B: Any theropod experts here could give insight into how to identify and differentiate these troublesome teeth would be appreciated and I think many new collectors and enthusiasts of Moroccan dinosauria would find such insights and knowledge very useful. Thx.
