Unknown fossil from fossil display set bought from National Maritime Museum of China
LDNewts posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, I found this really weird fossil from a fossil tooth display set of prehistoric fish and reptiles that I bought from the National Maritime Museum of China. It says that it belongs to Cretalamna appendiculata, but I searched it online and found out that the teeth of Cretalamna appendiculata looked really unlike what I have. Does anyone know which creature does this piece of fossil belong to? P.S. The display set says that all the fossils are from the phosphate mines of Morocco Picture one is the piece of fossil that needs identification
Real Andalusiana Trilobite?
RhinoWater posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHello, I am a new fossil collector and have recently stumbled upon an Andalusiana trilobite for sale online. I have made the purchase before reading the numerous posts on here about Andalusiana trilobites and the prevalance of fakes. I am afraid that the trilobite I have purchase might not be genuine. The trilobite is on its way to my house. I have attached some pictures that the seller has posted on the listing. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Real Spinosaurus tooth?
RhinoWater posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHello, I am a novice collector and have only just begun collecting fossils. Was on a lookout for a Spinosaurus tooth and managed to chance upon one in a bookstore. I bought it and brought it home, and upon closer inspection the tooth looks kinda plastic-y. Understand that some restoration is unavoidable in most fossils, and am just trying to ascertain if the tooth is genuine. Would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you.
Enchodus jaw Morocco
JBkansas posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsI always have trouble telling if jaws are real or manufactured. As far as I can tell this looks real (but incomplete). Let me know if I'm missing something. Looks like there's some bonus verts in the matrix as well.

Question About Radiation In Fossils
GarethGP posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey, So I was just reading about radioactivity in fossils and I'm paranoid. I just got a smallish (8 inches, by 6 inches matrix) from the Moroccan phosphate beds. How likely is it to be dangerous? And how best should I store it?
Could this be a Sauropod partial scapula bone?
msantix posted a topic in Fossil IDWondering if this is a Sauropod partial scapula from the Kem Kem. It is 28cm long and by the looks of it, I do believe it is from a scapula but not sure if it is indeed from a Sauropod or a crocodyliform. Thanks.
Kem Kem tooth repaired?
Adam86cucv posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsI was curious if this tooth has been repaired or anything weird. Seems like it might have been broken and glued back together. I'm a bit curious about the shiney look and dark speckles on it. Does it seem like they put a coating on it and the speckles are matrix or miscellaneous 'dirt'? For the price I am offered it at I know it's not going to be perfect. Just wanted to see if anyone saw any red flags or weirdness.
