  1. Theropod Tooth - Kem Kem

    As I'm forever on the look out for unidentified theropod teeth, just thought I'd pop this one up for a second/third opinion. It's listed online as Carcharodontosaurus, but I'm not 100% feeling it. The base width appears to be quite narrow, and the serrations seem to strongly increase in size towards the apex. The larger denticles almost look chisel shaped and there's an apparent lack of interdental succuli present too. Probably just positional variation of a Carch, but always worth a double check. Length is approx. 3.5cm. There are sadly no photos of the cross sectional view. Close up of distal denticles:

    From the album Pisces

    36mm. Eocene From Khouribga, Morocco
  3. Hypotodus robustus (Leriche 1921)

    From the album Pisces

    3cm. Eocene From Khouribga, Morocco
  4. From the album Vertebrates

    Thorectichthys rhadinus Murray & Wilson, 2013 Upper Cretaceous Cenomanian / Turonian Akrabou Formation Gara es Sbâa Agoult Morocco Length 5cm / 2" Murray & Wilson described two Thorectichthys species from Gara es Sbâa: T. marocensis with a very pronounced body depth and T. rhadinus (from “rhadinos” meaning slender, tapering or lithe) in reference to the body depth being much less than in T. marocensis. These fish are quite often mistakenly offered as Satericthys sp or Triplomystus sp. Lit.: Two new paraclupeid fishes (Clupeomorpha: Ellimmichthyiformes) from the Upper Cretaceous of Morocco.

  6. Morocco - theropod or croc?

    Hi, I recently acquired this eroded, agatized vert, collected in Morocco. It was sold as a theropod, but a friend thinks it’s a crocodilian. Is there any way to tell? Thanks!
  7. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  8. Kem Kem bone Id

    hi there I could use some assistance with a pair of bone IDs. They're Cretaceous, reptile, from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Any help would be appreciated. I think the smaller of the two is a tibia? The second bone is in a reply to this post
  9. Scyphocrinus elegans (Zenker 1833)

    From the album Echinodermata

    Size of the plate: 23x12x4cm. Silurian Erfoud, Morocco
  10. Pterosaur Fossils are a rarity, and few ever are on the public market, but the Pterosaurs from the Kem Kem Beds are seen most commonly on the market, this is rather not due to an unusally high Pterosaur abundance, but rather because almost every Fossil is being collected at this locality. Currently, there are 4 named species from the Kem Kem Beds, but the actual number is far higher. The Named Taxa are Alanqa saharica, Xericeps curvirostris, Sirrocopteryx morrocanus and Coloborhynchus fluviferox. Some unnamed ones im allowed to talk about are the Kem Kem Tapejarid, a small Chaoyangopterid species and a 3rd Ornithocheirid. The small Chaoyangopterid originally was identified as a Pteranodontid, but it is a Chaoyangopterid. There are up to 4 more Pterosaurs from this Locality, but I am not allowed to talk about them, all of them Azhdarchoids though. The 3rd Ornithocheirid wont affect the identification of any of the Ornithocheirid teeth, but that's all I can say. Sirrocopteryx and Coloborhynchus The Identification of Pterosaur Teeth from Kem Kem has recently become impossible to the genus level, for the most part that. C. fluviferox is a gigantic Ornithocheirid, and any Teeth of greater size might be referable to it, cf. Coloborhynchus fluviferox. Another thing notable is that the Identification can be restricted to a subfamily, Coloborhynchinae indet. instead of Ornithocheiridae/Anhangueridae indet., although this is rather Nitpicky. Alanqa and Xericeps Both of these Taxa are primarily known from Mandible and Rostral Tips, identification of these is rather easy, with the one of Alanqa being triangular in crossection, and the ones of Xericeps curving upward. Loads of Postcrania is also often refered the either of the two, referal is inconclusive though, especially considering there are more than just those two. The Chaoyangopterid and Tapejarid I have never seen either two on sale, but I will be mentioning them further too. The Tapejarid is a large Taxon related to Sinopterus, it's the first image. But there is more Material I cant mention. The small Chaoyangopterid is just a mandible fragment, but it has a rather deep crest. What about the Dsungaripterid? The Material of the Dsungaripterid most likely represents Xericeps.
  11. Cretaceous vertebra from Morocco

    I bought this at a show from a dealer. Curious as to if we could pin down what kind of dino this might have belonged to? Thanks!
  12. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow

  23. Authentic Moroccan Trilobites?

    Real? Fake? 50/50? (The first one looks most suspect to me, especially the midsection.)
  24. What kind of fish/shark might this be?

    Saw these at a fossil shop, and as far as I can figure they look like fish bones with some shark teeth and mosasaur teeth here and there. They’re from Morocco I think. Any thoughts?
  25. What mosasaurus is it ?

    What mosasaurus is it? I bought it as Globidens phosphaticus but I find the bone is from another kind of Mosasaurus. And the seller stick them together. Can someone tell me what specie does the bone belong to? Thanks. Picture 3 is what it looks like at the begining.
