  1. Hi everyone! Well, I have another weird Kem Kem bone, one of the last mystery bones in the batch. And I'm completely stumped. The closest thing I have to a guess is fish and that's only because fish seem to have a lot of weird looking bones around their skull. I don't have anything to compare it to. There's a lot of weird nooks and crannies on this piece so if you all need a better picture focusing on a specific area let me know. Measures 9.8 x 5.2 cm and thickness ranges from 2.8-1.7 cm Any insight is appreciated as always

  4. Hi, Was just wondering if this is really a Spinosaur jaw fragment because most I see labelled as that turn out to be Croc instead. It is a small fragment at 6.5cm in length and comes from the Kem Kem. Thanks!

  8. Hi, I have been offered this Pterosaur bone that looks possibly like a Pterosaur metatarsal but even after getting more photos of the fossil, I am not too sure if there has been work done to it, and this is why I want to post it here and get some opinions before doing anything else. I have some small concerns about the joint part. It comes from the Kem Kem. Thanks and I hope the photos are sufficient to determine how real it is!

    Encounter with a Carcharodontosaurus

    Even though I like and support the development of portraying dinosaurs as real animals instead of monsters, it is hard to deny that an encounter with a big theropod must have been a pretty scary experience.

    Kem Kem dromaeosauridae ?

    Buonasera ! Browsing online looking for KK teeth, I came across a site that sells several products, including these "raptor teeth" from KK. Is this plausible? I don't think I've ever read about dromaeosaurids found in the KKB, furthermore some would seem to have the appearance of being small carcharodontosaurus teeth...

    ID for this claw?

    Looking for ID of this tiny claw. According to the seller it's an unidentified theropod claw from the Cretaceous albian. Location: Kem Kem Basin, Taouz, Morocco. It's a very tiny claw of 0.67" (1.7 cm)

    What is it?

    This is a fossil from Kem Kem. Does anybody know what it is? I would highly appreciate your opinion. Thanks in advance!

    Kem Kem Caudal Vertebrae

    Hi friends - I recently acquired a theropod caudal vertebrae from the Kem Kem over in Morocco. It’s currently ID’ed as Theropoda sp. indet. and that’s probably about as specific as we can get. But I was curious if the brain trust here had any further details I’m missing that could give away a specific species of theropod. Thanks for taking a look!
  15. Hi, I know claws from the Kem Kem are very hard to identify since not much is published on them, but this is a small 2.1cm claw from the Kem Kem with a curved shape that makes me think that it might be enough to determine if it is theropod (as listed) or croc or even turtle. My gut tells me it is likely to be croc or turtle, but I think some members here might have claws just like this in their collection, so thought it would be worth asking.

    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)
  19. 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.
  20. 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

    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
  23. 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.
  25. 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
