    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?

    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!

    Chonker, the Carcharodontosaurus tooth

    From the album: Dard’s fossil purchases

    Carcharodontosaurus tooth from Kem Kem Beds. Preserved serrations and I believe the white is root. The tip is also intact. Measures 3.93in in length.

    Moroccan Bones

    Hey all, I acquired a large box of bones from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. I don’t have information on them besides that. I suspect a large number of these are crocodilian, but there’s an assortment of other things as well. All told there’s probably 60-90 bones in the box, so I’m going to avoid putting too many in a post. All measurements are in inches. set A: set B: set C: set D: set E: Thanks all for any help!

    Spino caudal vertebra?

    Theropod Tooth Identification

    Any thoughts on what Family of theropod this tooth might represent? It comes from a trusted source and was collected from the Kem Kem near Taouz, Morocco. Thank you for your comments on my previous submission, especially Troodon.
  8. I was curious if this tooth has been repaired or anything weird. Seems like it might have been broken and glued back together. I'm a bit curious about the shiney look and dark speckles on it. Does it seem like they put a coating on it and the speckles are matrix or miscellaneous 'dirt'? For the price I am offered it at I know it's not going to be perfect. Just wanted to see if anyone saw any red flags or weirdness.
  9. Good morning to everyone at TFF! What exactly is this? According to the seller, this belongs to a Lepidotes pankowskii (South Taouz, Errachidia Province, South Morocco - Formation Ifezouane, Red Sandstone Beds, KemKem Basin - Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian stage - ~96 Million Years) . It's real? Is there scientific information on this? Any and all information will be extremely useful to assist me. I thank everyone! @Troodon @LordTrilobite @Tidgy's Dad @Haravex @hxmendoza
  10. Just thought I would share the Carcharodontosaurus teeth I currently have. They measure 1.2 inches, 1.8 inches, and 2.7 inches. The largest one luckily has the serrations mostly intact even though the enamel is badly worn.

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probabl

    A "Kem Kem" jaw

    Seller says its Kem Kem. I don't think it is, because it looks like a mosasaur, but I don't think there are any Kem Kem mosasaurs. I don't think the matrix looks like Ouled Abdoun either. It looks like Goulmima to me, so am I right that it is a Tethysaurus jaw? Thanks.
  13. Here is another recent addition to my collection I had to get. On first glance it looked like a spinosaur tooth but I noticed it was laterally compressed, not curved, and no visible serrations, so it has me stumped. Would like to see if someone could ID this for me as is but if I need to remove some matrix I will do so. It is just shy of an inch in length. Edit: Tried to delete the duplicate picture but it doesn’t seem to be working.
  14. Is this Spinosaurus tooth real? I am slightly suspicious of it, but am not experienced enough to tell
  15. Hi All! I am new to fossil collecting and I recently bought a Carcharodontosaurus tooth from an online fossil store. I just want to double check with more experienced people to see if the tooth looks real and is as described by the seller. The description said it is from the Kem Kem deposits of Morocco, and has no repair or restoration. The tooth is one and 1/16 inches long. Thank you for your help!
  16. Dear Forum, I bought the following 'fossil' - labelled 'Kem Kem Vertebra Process'. I was wondering whether anyone could identify for me to what type of dinosaur it once belonged (i.e. sauropod, theropod... the more detailed the better!)? Best Regards Jamie

    Kem Kem Theropod vertebra centrum

    This is a vertebra I won as part of an online giveaway. I was told that it’s a Spinosaurus vertebra, but I doubt that vertebrae centra are identifiable down to genus level like that. Still, thought I’d post it here in case anyone can narrow it down for me so I can get a more accurate ID. (I will add that although it is difficult to see in the images, both the posterior and anterior ends of the centrum are concave). Thanks!

    Unusual Kem Kem Tooth

    Here is a tooth I acquired recently acquired. It was mixed in with a bunch of the usual kem kem stuff, gar scales, sawfish barbs, small damaged spino and croc teeth ect. This tooth stood out so I got it and wonder if anyone has any clues? The mesial serrations are smaller than the distal side and they stop about a quarter of the way up the tooth. About 13mm long base is 8 mm from distal to medial and 5 to 6 mm from lingual to labial end.
  19. Hello! I'm a new member and I was hoping I could get some second opinions on some Kem Kem fossils I'm thinking about purchasing. I've only collected American species, and have been recently interested in bones out of the Kem Kem beds. I've stayed away thus far because of the stories of composite fossils and Frankenstein pieces, but I've come across a couple that I thought were interesting and fairly priced. Was hoping I could get some other thoughts before moving on any of them (wanna make sure they aren't composites or areas of fill look weird). I've attached pictures of three specimens I'm l

    Polypterid/Bawitius jaw from Kem Kem?

    Hi, I have a friend in Morocco who is helping me get my hands on some Bawitius or other Polypterid material from the Kem Kem Beds as it is one of my top bucket list fossils. Today he send me this picture what he might believe could be a match for my search. Now I am not a fish expert and there isn't a whole lot of Bawitius material available to compare it to. So I was hoping of some of the Kem Kem or fish experts might chime in and shed some light on the piece. @LordTrilobite @gigantoraptor @Haravex VID-20210902-WA0006.mp4

    New additions to my collections!

    Hi everyone! I want to introduce some new additions to my teeth collections. 1. Nodosaur tooth from Judith River Formation This tooth is from Hill Co. Montana. Has nice set of serrations, and 10 mm wide. There are two genus of Nodosaur known from Judith River F. : Edmontonia and Palaeoscincus, thus, this is a Nodosaurid indet. 2. Pygmy sperm whale (Kogiopsis) tooth from Hawthorn Formation This tooth has no tip, but have enamel and root. This is slightly larger than 3 inch

    Pterosaur beak and bone

    Hello fossil lovers, I buy recently this partial (?upper) beak and this bone of a pterosaur (maybe a ?humerus). I need a confirmation of my identification and a help for a more precise id, to maybe determine the family or even better the specie.

    Rebbachisaurus vert

    Hello everyone, i have a question concerning Rebbachisaurus vert. I saw a huge Kem Kem vert in the Troodon’s collection that he refered to a dorsal Rebbachisaurus vert, the problem is about this identification. I can’t find any other vert like this in rebbachisaurid papers, particularly about Rebbachisaurus who show great difference about the morphology of the neural process and the centrum. I don’t see any pleurocoel on the centrum of the troodon’s vert and the neural spine is laterally flat with a strange « granular plate » on the anterior surface. I think about two possibilities : m

    Kem Kem Plesiosaur tooth?

    Hi, I am interested in this tooth---sold as Plesiosaur tooth from the Kem Kem Beds. First time I've seen one from Kem Kem sold before, but I see someone bought one recently in the "mailbox score" thread, but it looks different--lighter colored preservation. Anyone know if this is actually from Kem Kem going by the matrix and preservation and not from Ouled Abdoun with just the wrong formation listed? It is 5CM long. Also the tip---just repaired, or compositied? I'm a bit concerned that the top of the tip seems a little bit wider than the middle. But it coul
