    Kem Kem +x bones and teeth

    Hello dear fellow forum members, I have been offered a bundle of bones and teeth from one of the formations subsumed under "kem kem", although the more blackish ones seem to be of a different preservation than the "classic". There are quite some interesting pieces in there, amongst some turtle bones I think. I would be grateful for any hints on ID you can give me. first some of the tentative turtles.

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID (Croc/Dino?)

    Looking for a little help identifying some small Kem Kem vertebrae. I have some ideas as to what they might be, but I'm sure I'll be corrected. Hopefully the answers will prove useful to anyone else trying to identify Kem Kem verts too! So here's what I think these are: Vert 1: Small theropod, possibly a juvenile spino? (or maybe crocodile) Vert 2: Crocodile Vert 3: Crocodile? Vert 4: Theropod dinosaur Vert 5: Theropod dinosaur (looked a little similar to an Abelisaur vertebra I've come across on the forum before)
  3. Hello, thoughts on this Spinosaurus claw, please? The color looks very odd to me--usually, claws I see for sale are more of a sandy color. But then--given the fact there are a lot of faked spino claws out there, I figure I can't really go with what I spot online. Also--the mosmatyched colors--some light bits, some dark bits. Finally--the structure of the claw is very rough. Much rougher than other claws I see online. Also--when I look at the groove, it's very rough and jagged. Not a smooth shape. I would appreciate others thoughts.
  4. Hello all. I picked up a mystery specimen. It's from the Kem Kem (Tegana Formation), ostensibly. It weighs 1.5 pounds. The skull has hollow cavitiies (air sacs?) inside, but I can't tell if they're air sacs; for arteries, or for nerves. They're definitely not mere 'holes'. I spent hours cleaning out pebbles and tiny/flat river-worn rocks and red matrix that filled almost every one of the holes that you see, so almost all of the holes were open pathways when the creature was alive. It was sold as Carcharadontosaur, but with an emphasis that it's not known what bone it is. The bone is so

    Denver show Kem Kem verts and claw

    Some pick ups from the first day of the Denver show. Figured the price was good enough to take a chance on. I am exhausted walking all day there so gonna be brief. Just wondering any and all opinions on these. First vert: Second vert: claw: thanks for looking!

    Unidentified Kem Kem bone

    Got this kem kem bone at the denver show. What do you guys think? Longest length is about 23 centimeters. Any ideas @Troodon and everyone else? zz
  7. Hi all. This little claw (1.6 cm) from the Kem Kem beds is claimed to be a theropod claw. Is that correct? Is it possible to id it to family level? Out of curiosity, I was also wondering if it is possible to tell apart avian and non-avian theropod claws. If so, how can you tell? Thanks!

    Another Kem Kem vert Denver show

    I got another vert looks decent and different than the other ones i got.
  9. Hello, I was looking at dinosaur teeth listings and this one caught my interest, it looks kinda like a dromeosaurid but also looks kinda like a carcharodontosaurus tooth. It’s from kem kem, Morocco and measures 0.46 inch. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it is, thanks

    Spinosaurid bone?

    Hi All, I acquired this piece of fossilised bone fragment recently and was assured that the specimen was Spinosaurus and came from the Kem Kem group, unfortunately I was not able to gather which formation it was from within the group. Although this piece is fragmentary, its hour glass shape and the thin ridges along each side give me hope that someone would know where on the skeleton this bone is from. I've done some quick research and found that Spinosaurus vertebrae are of similar shape but I am not 100% confident that it is a vert. If anyone has any idea which bone i
  11. I recently purchased this Spinosaurus tooth from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco, it’s 3 3/8” long and supposedly has no repair or restoration according to seller. Does the tooth show any signs of repair or restoration? Is it entirely real?
  12. Hello, what do you think, can i go "wrong" with these fossils from morocco? Are they real? Many greetings

    Anterior Carch?

    Hi all, This tooth is from Tegana fm, Kem Kem. I'm thinking it's a morph 10. The mesial carina seems to extend to the base, although it really thins out and gets dense (so I don't think it's a premax). Any input is appreciated. CH: 35mm CBL: 16mm CBW: 10mm Mesial serration density: 2.2/mm Distal serration density: 2.0/mm

    Spinosaurus bone?

    I’m gambling that this is a spinosaur bone, as it is supposed to be, but I really don’t know. Can anyone ID what this bone is, and if it’s spinosaurus or not? It’s apparently from Kem Kem. Thanks so much for any, and all help:)

    Carch? Indet?

    Hey all, During a discussion about different locations in the Kem Kem, this tooth came up. It always puzzled me, but I figured it was just an odd Carch tooth. But the reaction I got sounded like it was worth taking some better pics of. Any thoughts? Kem Kem is all I've got CH: 26mm CBL: 16mm CBW: 7.75mm Mesial serration density: about 2.75/mm Distal serration density: about 2.75/mm Thank you!!

    Kem Kem Dromaeosaur?

    Hey all, While I had my Kem Kem mystery teeth out (i.e., for my post from yesterday), I thought I'd see what you think on this tooth, which I find to be particularly unusual and interesting. Kem Kem is all I've got CH: 14.5mm CBL: 7.3mm CBW: 2.9mm Mesial serration density: about 5/mm Distal serration density: about 3/mm, extremely apically pointed Thank You!
  17. I saw this item for sale, said to be a Spinosaurus jaw fragment with an associated tooth glued on. Is it a composite, and does it belong to Spinosaurus?

    Unusual Kem Kem tooth

    Hi, Unusual looking tooth here. Sold from Kem Kem and dimensions are 20×8×6 mm. It doesn't look like any tooth I have seen from there before. I am wondering if it could be a more unusual type of crocodile than the usual croc teeth we see. Anyone have any ideas?

    Plesiosaurs from the Kem Kem Group

    https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667122001744 Plesiosaurs from the fluvial Kem Kem Group (mid-Cretaceous) of eastern Morocco and a review of non-marine plesiosaurs Georgina Bunker, David M. Martill, Roy Smith, Samir Zourhi, Nick Longrich Leptocleididae indet., shed teeth from the Kem Kem Group, Morocco. Unfortunately paywalled. Send me a message if you want the pre-proof PDF.
  20. Hello, some time ago I bought these 3 theropod teeth from Morocco. I suspect they come from the Kem Kem Formation, but I'm not sure because the colors are sometimes unusual. Do any of you have any idea what species or groups of dinosaurs we are dealing with here? I first labeled them as Abelisauridae indet., but I'm not sure if that's true, especially for the first tooth. Thank you in advance. Tooth 1:

    Kem Kem dino bones

    Hello fossil lovers, i bought those bones at Sainte-Marie-aux-mines and i need help for identification. All are from Kem Kem. 1 : I think an abelisauroïd (?Noasaurid) cervical but i need confirmation. 2 : no idea about this vert. 3 : distal caudal vert but no idea for the identification. Croc ? Dino ? 4 : Spinosaurid mid-cervical vert but i need to know the exact position
  22. 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 d
  23. Hi, I have been offered a Kem Kem claw which I think is a theropod hand claw, but when it comes to claws from the Kem Kem, I have little idea on how to spot composites or claws made out of carved bone (or at least, I worry too much about Kem Kem claws no matter how good they seem). Wanted to ask if someone can help me determine if this claw is real, and if so, are there any repairs done on it. Thank you!

    Kem Kem herbivorous caudal vert

    Hello everyone, i saw this mid caudal vert from the Kem Kem on a seller website and i directly understand that it can’t pertain to spinosaurus ; so i compared it with caudals from Ouranosaurus and titanosaurs and i see similarities but i need other opinions to be able to decide for the identification. The first image is the vert from the Kem Kem, the secound is caudals of Tambatitanis (a titanosaur) and the third is a caudal from the Venice Ouranosaurus specimen.
