  1. Hi, Wanted to get some opinions on this tooth. The tooth is from a Pliosaur with a root attached, what I want to know is if the root belongs to the crown. There is some matrix around part of the crown and extends just past the root which is my main concern. My initial thoughts are that the tooth and the root belong together so I just want to see if everything looks alright! thank you
  2. Hi mosasaurs lovers, I looked around on different american 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

    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!

    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g
  5. Hi! I would like to know if this trilobite is authentic and if there has been any major restoration. It has been listed as Hamatolenus vincenti, Middle Cambrian, Jbel Wawrmast Formation and is from Tarhoucht, Tinjdad, Morocco. Specimen is about 6.35 cm including spines. As always, thanks for the help.

    Unknown Serrated Moroccan Shark Tooth

    I was going through a number of common Otodus teeth for sale at a local rock show and found one with large serrations on the sides. Doing a little research showed two types of serrated shark teeth from Morocco. Otodus sokolovi and Palaeocarcharodon orientalis. The tooth is 3 1/2 cm long on the diagonal. Sorry for the poor photo. My camera isn't the best but you can make out the serrations. Can anyone identify this?

    Is this a spinosaurus claw?

    Are these real Spinosaurus claws? The size is 19 cm. Found in Tegana, Kemkem. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi, This is supposedly a Sauropod claw from Talsint, Morocco measuring 14cm. It is in rough state so I am not confident if it is a real claw or if it just carved bone made to look like a claw. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!!
  11. Are these real Spinosaurus claws? This claw was found in Kem Kem, Morocco. Looks like a real spinosaurus claw to me. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

    Moroccan phosphates croc tooth

    Hi guys what do you think the species of this is?
  18. Hi, I always struggle to tell the difference between a Plesiosaur tooth and an Ichthyosaur tooth. This tooth comes from Goulmima in Morocco (lower Turonian) so I believe it is a Plesiosaur tooth (possibly a Pliosaur tooth), but wanted to confirm it here. The tooth is 4.2cm in length and retains the ridges on the tooth which I think is how you might tell the difference between Plesiosaur and Ichthyosaur. Thank you!
  19. Hi all, due to various moves across continents I lost information on this particular Ammonite. I know you love some good detective work and I would be so grateful if anyone could help getting the label back up to speed Size is 12 cm long and 5 cm wide. What I could decipher/infer from the remnants of the label: Meto(f).... sp. Djebel Ait ... north of Goulmima, Morocco Thanks for taking a look!
  20. Hi, I think this does look all natural with no obvious red flags, but I wanted to make sure with some opinions here. It comes from Ait Hani, Morocco (Jurassic in age). Thank you!

    Kem Kem Theropod Vert

    Hi. I've just received this Kem Kem huge partial theropod vertebra (just the process) and I just wanted to know whether it's possible to ID? Was told Spinosaurid is likely but could also be Carch. Thanks in advance.
  22. Hi, This is a big bone from Ait Hani in Morocco (according to the seller), that is about 44cm in length. I don't know if it is hollow but I think this could be a limb bone from a Theropod or Sauropod. Want to ask as someone here might know better. It could be from something else but to me either a Theropod or Sauropod seems to be likely. Thanks!
  23. A new mosasaur is described from the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Khouribga Thalassotitan atrox Unfortunately its paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667122001793 Just thumbnails
  24. Here is a spinosaurus claw for sale on an auction site. I can't see any major red flags except for some small repairs, but i don't know. What do people here think? It's 10 cm long
  25. I know this pliosaur tooth has been discussed early in another post, but here are more pictures with true colour (I guess) provided by the seller. The true locality of this tooth remains unknown although the seller claimed it was from Oxford Clay Formation, England. Does this tooth belong to Liopleurodon Ferox or Cretaceous pliosaur?
