    Kem Kem dinosaur project

    I finally made a start with a project I was planning for a while now: drawing the Kem Kem dinosaur fauna! First I will draw each dinosaur individually and then I will combine them all in one big landscape. As you can probably tell, I am not aiming for 100% scientific accurary. I do however try to take into account what I know about these animals and what is known about their skeletons. This is the first one and probably the most iconic of them all: Spinosaurus. I will give regular updates here about this fun project, so stay tuned!

    Consolidate Kem Kem teeth

    Hi all. Some of the Kem Kem dinosaur teeth in my collection have cracks in the enamel or missing bits of enamel. Therefore I thought it would be wise to consolidate these teeth. I was thinking about using a 5% solution of paraloid b-72 in acetone. I do have a few questions about how to apply the consolidant. - I am planning to apply the paraloid using a small brush. How do you usually do that? Do one side first, wait for it to dry and then do the other side? - how long does it take before a tooth is completely dry and you can touch the fossil again with your bare hands? Minute
  3. Hi everyone? I know that this is sauropod from the kem kem, but I was wondering if it could be narrowed down anymore. I've looked at a guide for Kem Kem dinos on the forum and I'm leaning Titanosaur because of the oval cross section but I would really like a second opinion because of the feeding wear. length is 40 mm width is 9 mm thickness is 6 mm Any insight is greatly appreciated as always!

    Miniature dinosaur museum

    Welcome to... my tiny dinosaur museum! I used to work at the largest natural history museum of the Netherlands and now I created a little copy of my own. I just recently started collecting dinosaur teeth from Morocco. At the moment I have 7 teeth: two Spinosaurids, one Carcharodontosaurid, 3 Abelisaurids and a Titanosaurid. As you can see, I also like to collect dinosaur models that are more or less accurate according to latest insights. The museum is still under construction: the labels are not correct (this is what I got from the fossil dealers, I need to make better

    Elosuchus tooth?

    Hi everyone! I've been looking at possible ids for this one and my best guess is Elosuchus, but I wanted to make sure since the crown is kinda small (juvenile?). Kem Kem Beds, Morocco Crown Height is 2 cm, Crown base is 1.3 x 1.25 cm Overall specimen is 6.4 cm long (straight line) Largest cross section on root is 1.4 x 1.4 cm. As usual any feedback is appreciated!
  7. Hi everyone! Got a nice little mystery bone from the Kem Kem here. I think it's a Coracoid bone but I'm not sure from what. I'm leaning Crocodyliform only because that seems to be the most common thing for these random mystery bones but I don't know for sure so I figured I'd seek a second opinion in case it might be something else like a fish bone. It measures 7 cm (2.76 inches). Any feedback is appreciated as always!

    Kem Kem Dromaeosaurid like tooth?

    Looks like a pretty good candidate for a possible Dromaeosaurid tooth to me (small, compressed, recurved, clear difference in serration size and a mesial twist) but I would welcome your opinions. The tooth is 13 mm long. Serration counts are 16 per 5mm distal ans 23 per 5 mm mesial. Thanks!

    Morroco Tooth ID

    Hi all, Looking for tooth ID. This little guy was sold as an abelisaur but something looks off. Looks almost like a carch. Either way, at the price I'm more than happy with it just looking to confirm the ID. Quite a nice little thing. Kem Kem find in the Taouz area per the seller. Measurement for ID below in mm CH - 9.83 AL - 12.12 CBL - 7.41 CBW 3.27 Denticle on both sides are 13 (over 3mm since tooth is tiny). Thanks for any help!
  10. Paper finds strong support for aquatic habits in spinosaurids, associated with a marked increase in bone density. Paywalled paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-022-04528-0 Bone density of Baryonyx appears closer to Spinosaurus than Suchomimus which has lots of implications in its adaptation to aquatic life National Geo https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/spinosaurus-had-penguin-like-bones-a-sign-of-hunting-underwater Smithsonian https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/heavy-bones-he

    Kem Kem tooth

    Hi all. This tooth (about 2 cm) is advertised as Rugops and I have seen some similar teeth online with the same id. I am pretty sure that that is not what this is as it does not look Abelisaurid at all, but I have no idea what it could be. Especially the distal edge seems pretty weird to me (like it is a double edge), although these pictures from the seller are not great. The mesial edge does seem to be serrated. Is this even a theropod tooth? Thanks!

    Kem Kem Claw id help

    Hi everyone! I'm fairly certain there's no funny business on this one, but I don't know what type of critter it could be since I'm fairly certain 99.9% of Moroccan claw pics online are of fakes and the remaining 1% are misidentified. 37.5 mm long 12 mm tall 8 mm wide What do you all think? Dinosaur? Croc? Turtle? Pterosaur? Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always!
  13. Hi everyone! I've been going through and identifying some small serrated kem kem teeth and was hoping for some verification. I'm fairly certain the first three are Carcharodontosaurid and the last one isn't but I just wanted to make absolutely sure. CH is crown height CBL is the length of the base CBW is the width of the base

    Kem Kems feathered dinosaurs?

    Recently I started collecting dinosaur teeth from Morocco and it has completely refueled my childhood fascination with these awesome creatures. I work as an illustrator (amongst other things) and have taken up the idea of making an illustration of the Kem Kem dinosaur fauna. Before I start sketching, I need to know how these creatures looked like. One main thing I need to do is decide what animals I will give feathers. Here are my thoughts. Species I want to include: Spinosaurus aegyptiacus - enormous, probably semi-aquatic animal, so probably no feathers Ca

    Carcharodontosaurus premax?

    Hi everyone! I acquired this recently, I'm fairly certain it's Carcharodontosaurus but the shape is kinda off. Is it a Premax? dimensions are 6.2 x 2.5 x 1.5 cm Kem Kem Beds Morocco.

    Kem Kem vertebra id help

    Hi everyone! So first and foremost let me say, it's not a composite. Yes I know there is some sediment where the process meets the centrum, yes it is Moroccan, yes 99.9999999% of the time that automatically means funny business but I've looked at the area really carefully and the bone connects there (might try getting rid of some of that matrix at least on one side depending on what it's from). Anyway, I'm on the fence on this one. I was comparing it to a similar thread where a fellow asked about a caudal vertebra from the kem kem which turned out to be croc but was sol

    Partial tooth: Spinosaurid or...?

    Hi all. I know this is not a great tooth by any standard. But to be honest, I do like how it shows its age. Also, it emphasizes how well preserved my other teeth are. And it is nice and chunky! The tooth has lost some of the features to make an accurate ID. Still, it looks Spinosaurid to me. Could it possibly be something else? It is 7 cm long and from the Kem Kem beds. Thanks!

    Kem Kem Phalanges id help

    Hi everyone! I've gotten ahold of some kem kem phalanges and while I think most are Theropod I still could really use a second opinion to make sure (and potentially a further id like Spinosaur). I say most because while I'm fairly certain the first three are Theropod the last one looks off to me. Kinda reminding me mammal phalanges from deer or something I've seen from Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated as always!

    Kem Kem Sauropod tooth?

    Hi all. This tooth is advertised as an Rebbachisaurus tooth from Kem Kem (these are the only pictures provided). I have tried to find comparable teeth in earlier topics on this forum, but I was not really able to find a good match. What do you think? Is it a Sauropod tooth? Could it be Rebbachisaurus or probably something else? Or are more pictures or details needed? Thanks!

    Small theropod tooth

    Hi all. I am trying to learn about the characteristics of Dromaeosaurid teeth. This badly repaired and glued teeth (I am not even 100% sure it is not a composite) from Kem Kem is advertised as Dromaeosaurus, which it is most likely not. Yet it seems different from most Abelisaurid teeth and it might have some Dromaeosaurid like characteristics. Still I doubt it is the real deal, as I don't see a clear difference in serration density. What do you guys think?
  21. Hi all, This tooth (4.2 cm) was advertised as a Carcharodontosaurustooth that was broken and repaired on two spots. I do however strongly suspect that the tip of the tooth is from a different speciment than the rest of the tooth. It seems to have a somewhat different colour, texture and shine to it. What do you think? Thanks!

    Three small theropod teeth from Morocco

    I recently bought these three little teeth (between 1.7 and 2.0 cm long). They are from the Kem Kem Beds in Morocco. They were advertised as Dromaeosaurus teeth, but I know that is not very likely or well supported. I think the first two teeth might be Dromaeosaurid (mesial and distal serrations are different and the tip of the teeth extend past the base) and the third one might be Abelisaurid (distal side is almost straight). But I could very well be wrong, so I would like to hear your opinions. Thanks!
  23. Most everything you see sold on the commercial market as far as Sauropod teeth, from the Kem Kem of Morocco, is label Rebbachisaurus garasbae or Rebbachisaurus. They appear to be incorrectly identified based on the latest research. Feel free to add your teeth to show variations. What do we know of Sauropod teeth from this fauna? - very simple answer, very very little in fact less than we know of Theropod material which is very little to begin with. In the Kem Kem there is one described species a Diplodocoid, Rebbachisaurus garasbae and evidence of a large Titanosau
  24. Hi everyone. I am new to this forum and recently acquired what I think is my first dinosaur tooth. I am pretty excited and surprised that Spinosaurus teeth are so common and pretty affordable. What do you think of this tooth? Did it belong to a Spinosaurus? I bought this specimen because of the well preserved enamel and the nice colour. It was glued together after excavation, but that is okay by me. I believe i can discern some vestigial serration. Thanks for your insights!

    Kem Kem Vertebra

    Hi everyone . I recently receive this vertebra from Kem Kem basin . I am not sure about ID of this vert ... could be Theropod vert? I removed some of the matrix that covered this vert. I hope it helps a bit in ID There are some gap fill/restored areas to this vert as clearly see in photo. Thank you in advance and Happy Christmas ! Guns
