  1. 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

    Spinosaurus caudal bone?

    I have this bone from long time ago. As seller label it as Spinosaurus caudal vertebrae bone from Kem Kem bed, Morocco. But I’m not sure about this label about Spinosaurus or other species, can you guys help me to have a look? Thank you!
  3. The past few weeks at the Tucson Fossil I ran across a few fake Spinosaur claws but also was surprised how many good ones there were on the market. I also understand the issues with online claws so decided to put this topic out to help collectors gain a better understanding of them since they are very expensive. These are my opinions and welcome others since no one person as all the answers. There is no bullet proof approach you can take to insure you have a claw that is not totally fake or composited. There are some things you need to consider. - First try dealing w
  4. We know for many formations how would look like back to their age. We know for Morrison, Hell Creek, Elrhaz and many more. But, what about Kem Kem? Was a tropical forest with many rivers like the some million years older Elrhaz in Niger, was a environment like the modern north Africa with some dry regions and some regions with big rivers? Sure has many freshwater because we know aquatic predators like spinosaurids and crocodiles, lungfish etc. But, we can have a more accurate image?

    Kem Kem Notosuchian or Theropod?

    Hey everyone! I just received a few teeth from the Kem Kem Beds near Taouz, Morocco. Among them one has me particularly stumped - I’ll do my best to provide as much information as possible, but let me know if more is needed! The tooth was listed as a theropod, though even the seller thought that assignment was only tentative. Its total height is 14mm. As the pictures above show, it’s moderately recurved as well as slightly curved lingually, with very distinct flutes running the whole length of the crown, 6 lingually and 9 labially, with the lingual flutes a

    Tooth from the Kem Kem beds

    Hello, I'm trying to correctly identify a tooth found in the Kem Kem formation. It is clearly predatory! I was told it was possibly dromeosaurus, however after a search it seems there are many wrongly identified as this species from that location. Any help would be much appreciated.
  8. I need a few more Cretoxyrhina for the display I’m trying to finish. I really do not want to spend money so I’m trying a trade. I recently got some rare Kem Kem Lamniformes teeth and can offer up a Leptostyrax. It is the largest of those I got at 2.6 cm. There is some matrix on the root but the tooth is in pretty good shape. I would consider teeth from any location but my preference would be a location I don’t have such as New Mexico or Alabama. PM me if you’re interested

    Kem Kem Lamniformes teeth

    I recently picked up 5 Lamniformes teeth from the Kem Kem Beds. 3 are easy ID’s, Leptostyrax. There are 2 that I need a little help with. First one is 2.1 cm. I know both Cenocarcharias and Haimirichia are known from the Kem Kem beds. I have no examples of either in my collection. I didn’t find a lot of examples of Haimirichia so I can really pin it down.

  11. Isolated theropod Teeth from the Kem Kem Basin continue to be a mystery. Plan on documenting all the different morphologies I have in my collection to see the variation that exists. Currently we cannot identify any one to a specific species or genus possibly family. I can provide discussion and aid in identification at some point. Just a note, different morphologies do not necessarily mean different species. There are lots of tooth variations in the dentition of a theropod, why its so difficult to nail down an ID even in the best of circumstances. Morph Type 1 A

    A Deltadromeus agilis teeth?

    Strange fossil from Kem Kem Beds

    Hello, I recently discovered this strange fossil while browsing my collection. It is from the Kem Kem Formation and measures around 6cm on the longest side. I did some research but had absolutely no idea what that could be. I think it's also very difficult to determine, but maybe one of you has an idea. I would be happy to receive a few suggestions! On the left side (red arrow in the pictures) there is a 1cm deep "hole", a kind of bulge, but not broken out, but the natural shape of the bone. Many thanks and best regards from Germany

    My new Carcharodontosaurid tooth

    This is my new carcharodontosaurid tooth from Morocco. The tooth is 1.94 inch.
  15. The theropod landscape of the Kem Kem deposits continue to be more muddled with new discoveries and research but that should not surprise anyone. I've made several post about multiple Spinosaurid and Carcharodontosaurid in the Kem Kem and it continues to be supported by recent publications. The attached paper describes a femur that supports the concept that Abelisaurid's were in the Kem Kem. We are seeing teeth...so that's good. The paper however looks at the region: Figure 2 below, included in that paper, identifies the main theropod fauna of the region. The ab

    Theropod Dinosaur Tooth from Morocco ID

    HI, I purchased this Unidentified theropod tooth a few years ago from a seller that sold it as a "Raptor" tooth. It is from the Kem Kem beds from Morocco, during the late Cretaceous Period. It is 1.3 Centimetres (1/2 inch) long. The seller also mentioned that it may likely be from an Abelisaurid. I think that it is most likely an Abelisaurid tooth and I am looking forward to updating it's identification tag in my collection. Yet I need to be certain that I am correctly identifying this tooth. What are your thoughts about what this tooth could be? I apologize if I spelled/addressed the names i
  17. Excellent paper that examines the geology and paleontology of what they call the Kem Kem Group that includes the lower Gara Sbaa and upper Douira formations . I will add that the authors view of the dinosaur assemblage in this fauna does not agree with recent publications from other paleontologists. Great images of croc teeth, dinosaur teeth and claws. It even discusses "that some geographic names are simple errors that gain traction in secondary citations. In a prominent compilation of dinosaur localities, for example, the term “Tegana Formation” was cited for the
  18. Wow three more Pterosaurs from the Kem Kem and all toothed one premaxilla is similar to the English ornithocheirid Ornithocheirus simus. Currently identified as Ornithocheirus cf simus. The other a premaxilla is referred to Coloborhynchus, bearing similarities to C. clavirostris from the Hastings Group of southern England, and C. fluviferox from the Kem Kem beds. Identified as Coloborhynchus sp. A. A mandibular symphysis closely resembles that of Anhanguera piscator from the Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation of Brazil. Identified as Anhanguera cf piscator In total, the
  19. A new pterosaur-related paper is available online: David M. Martill; Roy Smith; David M. Unwin; Alexander Kao; James McPhee; Nizar Ibrahim (2020). A new tapejarid (Pterosauria, Azhdarchoidea) from the mid-Cretaceous Kem Kem beds of Takmout, southern Morocco. Cretaceous Research. in press: Article 104424. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2020.104424. Afrotapejara represents the second non-Alanqa azhdarchoid pterosaur from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco, and niche partitioning could explain the presence of more than one azhdarchoid taxon from the Kem Kem Beds.
  20. A short paper and article on sauropod teeth from North Africa. Nothing new just more info.

    Kem Kem Beds fossil id 2

    This bone was purchased a while ago from a Moroccan dealer. Could come from the Kem Kem beds although I have not found the typical attachment of sediment to this bone, therefore my doubt about the origin. According to the dealer it is from a dinosaur. Can anyone confirm this?
  22. Quite a while ago, I made a post talking about Kem Kem Pterosaurs, well since then I got more information, and new Information has been published. I specifically want to talk about Teeth. Now, the only toothed Pterosaurs we are aware off in Kem Kem are Ornithocheiraens, the clade that includes Ornithocheirids (not in all Versions though), Targaryendraconids, Cimoliopterids, Anhanguerids and Hamipterids. All of these besides Hamipterids and Cimoliopterids are possibly present in Kem Kem. So in my last post I claimed that the Teeth you can find should be labelled as Colob
  23. Hi all, I have another fossil here for your inspection please. It seems to be a Spinosaurid partial neural spine but I cannot be sure. @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  24. Hi all, I acquired a partial Spinosauridae caudal spine recently from the Kem Kem Beds. However, I was told that this is a dinosauria indet. rib. The digger who provided me the fossil is experienced and trustworthy. Still, I would like to hear your thoughts on this fossil. Thank you. EDIT: Two others suggested that this is part of a scapula
  25. A very interesting paper authored some notable paleontologists. I was able to see a copy of the pre-proof paper. It describes 2 new cervical vertebrae and also reviews published material that provided an interesting insite into the Abelisauroids of the Kem Kem. Abelisauroids include both Abelisauridae and Noasauridae families. To summarize some of the conclusions: 1) One of the cervicals FSAC-KK-5016 established the presence of a small-bodied noasaurid taxon with similarities to Masiakasaurus of Madagascar. Further discoveries of this noasaurid are necessary to determi
