    Unknown fossil

    Hello everyone, I need help to identify this fossil, it was found in morocco near essaouira in a meeting point between a river and the atlantic ocean, I was told that it's a mammoth tooth but I'm not sure, thank you in advance.
  2. I attended the 2019 Tucson show and a Moroccan dealer had a strange partial spike for sale. Purchased it and thought it might be ankylosaurian. Well a paper was just published that identifies it as the oldest Ankylosaur known, Spicomellus afer. From the El Mers III formation where the oldest Stegosaurus was found. It differs from all other known armoured dinosaurs that these spikes are fused on the dorsal ribs, pretty cool critter. Paper (paywalled but it opened up for me) https://www.nature.com/articles/s41559-021-01553-6 Articles https://www.nhm.ac

    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.
  4. Hello, I am looking for thoughts on whether the specimens (photos attached) are real please. Thank you in advance.
  5. Hi again! If you saw my thread from yesterday, you'll know I bought some Moroccan fossils for dirt cheap that turned out to be pretty nice. I went to the same dealer today and bought three more for the same price. I suppose I will start with the worst (most suspicious) first: I saw this vertebra and liked how it looked, so I bought it. I'm totally fine with spending $20 for a vert recreation, too, so no big deal if it's fake. What makes me suspicious is the place where it's chipped, it looked like there was paint flaking off. I guess I'm asking, how much of it is real and what is i
  6. I saw this for sale on a well known site. Seller says its a frontal tooth of a Basilosaurus from Dakhla, Morocco, Late Eocene, Should I buy it?
  7. Hi all! Very new to fossils, but hope to be stickin' around long term! While on a trip to Traverse City, MI this past weekend, I came across what appeared to be an amazing Moroccan crocodile skull fossil specimen (pics attached) at a mineral, fossil, and jewelry shop. The seller agreed to sell it for at a discount with guaranteed authenticity. I excitedly posted it on a fossil subreddit when I got home, and was immediately informed this specimen was an obvious fake from Morocco, and that Moroccan fossils are often fakes. One user specified the skull was likely constructed with san

  10. Hello everyone, I bought a bucket of small shark teeth from a fossil dealer in my country many years ago. The tag on it says it’s from morocco, khouribga, and the age is Eocene, Cenozoic. I found it when I was cleaning my room last week, and I started trying to identify them. I guess that 1st and 3rd one is carcharias, 2nd one is striatolamia, and the 4th one is cretolamna. If these conjectures are obviously wrong, I’m very sorry about that. In my country, there is no research on this subject and these sharks don’t even have an official name. Thanks for your help.
  11. Hello guys, I should probably start this post by mentioning that I'm not a vertebrate guy. So if anything I say is wrong or laughable, this isn't my best subject. Today I bought two jaw pieces with no label for a ridiculously low price. I think they're Enchodus from Morocco, but I wanted to verify. Also, there are some various verts, shark teeth, etc. in the matrix, I think the visible shark tooth in piece #1 is Squalicorax, and I'm not sure about the one in #2. And the large vert on #1 might not be identifiable, but I thought I'd ask. Are there any major red lights? Any serious re
  12. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry

    Mosasaur teeth ID

    Several Moroccan mosausaur teeth I’d appreciate an ID for. I don’t know how to identify mosasaur teeth. Better pictures might be required so would be more than happy to send them if needed.
  14. Hi all! Soooo I just recently made a trip to my local mall, and the upscale mineral/fossil shop there had a bowl of assorted cheap Moroccan fossils for sale. As far as I could tell they were of Cretaceous marine origin, most of them being goblin shark and Cretolamna teeth. However there were a few interesting finds, including a small theropod dinosaur tooth!!! You bet I paid my $0.50 for that sucker =p Also, I found some sort of jaw bone, an unknown shark tooth (pathological?), and a possible fish skull cap maybe? I’m going to post them to the Fossil ID page for some help, I don’t know my Moro
  15. Hi everyone, I currently have a friend in Morocco who recently found two teeth which he believes are the front dentary teeth of Carinodens which by itself are extremely rare but this tooth position especially. After doing some research I agree with my friend in Morocco about the ID to which he came to. But due to their rarity they are pretty pricey and because of that I wanted to have a second opinion just to be sure. Thank you all in advance! @jnoun11 @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon Care to chime in?

    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
  17. Hi Guys, I recently purchased the placoderm below, it originates from Jebel El Mrakib, Maeder Region, of Morocco, and is dated to the early Famennian of the upper Devonian. The species is Titanichthys termeri. I was trying to do a bit more research on Moroccan placoderms but couldn’t find too much online, I was just wondering how common Placoderm fossils are to the region, any interesting facts about the species and maybe some geological context to the formation (and hopefully the fossil looks authentic – I didn’t notice anything questionable myself but please let me know if you think oth

    Giant Kem Kem vertebrae

    Hello. I was wondering if someone could identify this vertebrae. It originates from the Kem Kem Basin of Morocco. I don't have much else information on it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
  19. I acquired this fascinating fossil at the recent show. My first reptile bones. The dealer said it is from Morocco and of the same age (and matrix) as the mosasaur jaw sets he had next to it. But he wasn’t sure if it was a baby mosasaur or a different species of smaller aquatic reptile. I’m pretty sure TFF can answer these questions I have. 1) Is this a baby mosasaur or a different species (if so what species)? 2) Can you identify the visible bones? 3) Is it worth it or feasible to attempt to reveal more of this fossil? 4) If so, what special procedures/tools would be necess

    Pliosaur teeth? Moroccan

    Hi all, here are more pliosaur teeth questions from me.. these are from the Asfla Goulmima Morroco Cretaceouds turonien. I'm fairly certain the stubby one is pliosaur but seeing as I've been mistaken more than once, I'd like to ask here. I think the slender is plesiosaur, but again.. I'd like for people with more knowledge than me to pitch in
  21. Hey guys! While on vacation my brother nephew and I wondered into a fossil shop and I helped them pick out a nice tooth and jaw from a mosasaur which I identified as Mosasaurus beaugei. My question is, is it a composite or a partial jaw with tooth? I'm leaning towards composite, but I wanted a second opinion. Don't worry about my nephew, he's aware it might be a composite and is THRILLED with it either way and it wasn't expensive. Quarter is for scale. Thanks!
  22. Hello, im interested in this jaw. How does it look for restoration? From Oued Zem, 38cm x 23cm. Thanks for the help

    Pliosaur? From Morocco

    Here is a 7 cm long tooth, claimed to be pliosaur. What do people here think? It's from Morocco, unsure where specifically. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

  25. Hi y'all, I picked these shark teeth up from a local rock shop. The first is definitely a symphyseal/parasymphyseal tooth but I'm not sure if it's from an Eocene Parotodus or Otodus. I lean towards Parotodus because of the narrow crown and its significant curvature. The second I think is a Cretolamna biauriculata. The symphyseal is about an inch ~ 2 cm in length. @siteseer@Al Dente@MarcoSr@Untitled Parotodus sp.?: Cretolamna biauriculata?:
