Multiple spinosaurs in the elrhaz formation?
Per Christian posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI know @Troodon posted a guide to identify theropod teeth from Niger, and in it there's only one spinosaur; suchomimus. But are there any indications of multiple spinosaurs as of yet in the elrhaz? Most likely there were I'm sure but i don't know what data exists
possible E. dinops tooth
AJ the Tyrant posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHey! 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?
Kikokuryu posted a topic in Fossil IDWhile 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

Niger Theropod (+Fish) ID
Kikokuryu posted a topic in Fossil IDI 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
