  1. 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.

    Some Kem Kem oddballs

    Hello all Yesterday, I could add a few more items to my ever expanding Kem Kem collection. I am very excited with these pieces, but some of them I have a lot of questions by. 1) This weird lungfish toothplate. Currently there are 3 species of lungfish known from the Kem Kem beds. The first and most common species is Neoceratodus africanus, of which the toothplates are described as 'Toothplates with deeply incised ridges'. The second species is Ceratodus humei, described as 'small toothplates with low ornamentation and only four low ridges' Third species

    O. dunkeli Kem Kem?

    Hello all I recently bought a tooth from the Kem Kem beds that clearly belongs to the genus Onchopristis. The weird thing about the tooth is that it has two hooks instead of just one. I know the species Onchopristis dunkeli has two (or more) hooks, but I don't find any official rapports metioning them in the Kem Kem beds. The tooth has yet to arrive, but I already wanted to ask the question. What do you think? Is there a chance O. dunkeli occurs in the Kem Kem beds or would it just be a pathological example. I have been searching a long time for a specimen like this. The toot
  6. ...or just a very bad idea? This is a partial Spinosaurid tooth. The other side of the tooth is completely missing. Areas of the tooth are covered with what I believe is glue mixed with sand or matrix. I really don't like the look of this Moroccon method to "improve" teeth. I already tried to rub the glue/sand mixture off with a acetone covered rag and the tooth looks a bit better than before (although the tip fell off and I had to reattach it with some superglue). Now I am thinking about soaking the tooth in acetone to remove all this glue/ sand mixture and then put it back together with just
  7. Hello everyone, I came across this Spinosaurus claw. I was wondering if this claw is genuine. It looks to me like it consist of multiple fragments added together. Thanks in advance. Location: Kem Kem beds Size: 13 cm

    Big flat bone from Kem Kem

    Hello everyone, someone propose to me this bone from the Kem Kem and i don’t really know what is it. If someone have an idea…
  9. I found this spinosaurus tooth online. It seems to have a mostly complete root. However, it does look like it has been repaired, and there might be some restoration, but I can't tell. Thanks for any help. The tooth also appears to have some striations along the carina.

    Somewhat aberrant Abelisaurid tooth

    Another Kem Kem tooth (17 mm). Pretty sure it is Abelisaurid, but it does have some noticable differences with my other Abelisaurid teeth. It is less compressed and one side of the tooth (the lingual?) is pretty flat, while the other side is not. Am I right to assume these are probably just positional differences? Could this be a more anterior tooth? Thanks!

    Anterior Carch tooth?

    Hi all! I received this tooth (5 cm) in my mailbox today. My best guess is an anterior Carcharodontosaurid tooth, but I am not entirely sure. It is pretty fat and the distal carina is displaced. What do you think? Thanks!

    Kem Kem Theropod Tooth

    I'm thinking of buying this tooth. It was listed as "raptor, but looks like theropod indet. to me. Or, it might be one of those teeth that actually are dromaeosaur. What do you guys think? It's about a half inch or 1.2 cm.
  13. Hey, So I was just reading about radioactivity in fossils and I'm paranoid. I just got a smallish (8 inches, by 6 inches matrix) from the Moroccan phosphate beds. How likely is it to be dangerous? And how best should I store it?
  14. Wondering if this is a Sauropod partial scapula from the Kem Kem. It is 28cm long and by the looks of it, I do believe it is from a scapula but not sure if it is indeed from a Sauropod or a crocodyliform. Thanks.
  15. First off, this is my first time posting on the forum. So hello everyone! I just got my hands on some Spinosaurus fossils, allegedly from the Kem Kem beds. Both are from a seller in Arizona. One of them is a hand claw, as seen below. I'm not 100% sure that it's from a Spinosaurus, so I hope someone can tell me. But it seems very real. The other specimen, though, has some bizarre properties. I thought it might be fake. But after doing some tests on my own, I'm only more confused. These are the vertebrae that I bough
  16. Are there any raptors in the Kem Kem formation? I've seen that I think just about all of the teeth listed as raptor are actually abelisaur. On Wikipedia, it said that Deltadromeus isn't a raptor. I'm confused because I had thought that it was.

    ID on Kem Kem jaw

    Hi guys I've known this piece for like 10 years and the owner finally sold it to me. The size is 10,5 cm and the only original tooth is the middle one... Need some help in the id to understand if it's crocodilian or spino indet.

    Kem kem croc tooth

    Hi guys, I have this croc tooth from the Kem Kem beds and I haven’t been able to identify it, would anyone be able to help? Thanks
  19. Hi, I'm interested in this fossil that is listed as a Theropod Ilium bone from the Kem Kem (21cm in length). I wanted to ask if there are enough diagnostic features to identify it as belonging to a theropod or does it resemble something from a crocodyliform instead? Thanks!

    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:)
  21. I have this beautiful 3.93in Carcharodontosaurus tooth from the Kem Kem Beds. There’s some very minor restoration done to the tooth, with just some crack filling to two very small cracks in blade. The tip and serrations are completely intact however, which is absolutely incredible

    kem kem ribs id help

    Hi everyone! I'm helping a buddy go through and identify a ton of Moroccan stuff he acquired several years ago. There were two large ribs, the first is 10 inches (straight line) an the main part is .75 inches wide. the second is 5.5 inches (straight line) and 1.25 inches wide. I'm fairly certain these are Dinosaur or crocodile, leaning toward dinosaur but I'm not certain which type. Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always!

    Spinosaurid and crocodile teeth

    I bought these teeth from a local shop. Both sold as spinosaurid teeth but I am sure that the rooted is croc. What do you believe?
