    Mosasaur or croc?

    Found this yesterday in the Ramenessin Brook in NJ. I'm thinking it could be a mosasaur tooth. Would appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
  2. Last weekend was one I'll never forget... I've barely processed it, but now that I can be more coherent, here is the story of the mosasaur we found --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On September 11 & 12, I researched and found new fossil hunting area (to me), that exposed the Eagle Ford formation. I decided to scout it, and that scouting trip ended up being wildly successful. On the first weekend of my scout, I walked away with severa
  3. 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
  4. Hey all This has popped up on on my country's version of online.... yep, no online here! I appreciate your thoughts on this one I'm sceptical... real tooth, seemingly in good condition (on the one side at least) apart from a missing tip. I can see two different colours on the matrix.... is the bulk of it real matrix with fake matrix coated over the top to hide a bunch of inconsistencies? Or is the whole lot fake matrix. The area where the crown and root meet is bad, really bad - definitely manufactured. Is that even a real root or a random piece of bone? As
  5. I went out to brave the Texas summer heat and was well rewarded. Post Oak Creek is so heavily picked, especially in the summer, that I didn't expect much. I even went there with the Dallas Paleontological Society last month and saw a ton of footprints then and not many good teeth. The first three hours I found almost nothing, as I expected the surface was all picked over, however I found one gravel bar that people must not have gotten to because I started finding a few decent cretodus, squalicorax, goblin shark teeth, and a couple of nice ptychodus. Finally I found two huge teeth about a foot

    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.

    Big Brook teeth

    Found these teeth in Big Brook,NJ today. First one I’m sure is a mosasaur but I’ve no idea on the second one. Thanks.

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  9. Hi everybody, I've seen this mosasaur skull... it has been classified like Eremiasaurus heterodontus from morocco . 750 x 380 mm. What do you think? Thanks
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. Hi, I just saw these articles, and I wanted to make sure they are real. The vertebrae of Onchosaurus seem correct, but I am concerned about Otodus' teeth, and that of Mosasaur. Mosasaur 2.2 ctms.(Just the tooth ). and Otodus 5 ctms.
  13. Hello, im interested in this jaw. How does it look for restoration? From Oued Zem, 38cm x 23cm. Thanks for the help

    NJ Mosasaur?

    Hey all, Feeling a little like the boy who cried Mosasaur. I am fairly confident what I have here is a Mosasaur but wanted to get another opinion. The species I believe to be Proghathodon rapax (Hay).

    Halisaurus tooth?

    Hi everyone! I found this tooth that for sell, can you give me an advice is that Halisaurus or just Proganothodon? As I’m looking to collect the various of Creataceous Morocco. Thank you!
  19. Hi there! I'm new to the forum. I recently picked up a mosasaur jaw, my first fossil. Question is it real or fake, I started doing the research after making the purchase.. Comparing it to other examples, it's somewhere in the middle. It doesn't look totally manufactured, but it also kind of looks to good to be true. Opinions?
  20. Attached are pictures of my collection of four isolated teeth from Travis County, Texas with limited identifications. I am not an expert on pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, or mosasaurs. I just know fairly accurately in which member of a specific formation I found these teeth. All of these were located in or near a shell hash layer associated with oyster fragments, Ptychodus, or other regular shark's teeth. (1) 10/2/2017 - Upper South Bosque - ~91 mya - first picture (as cleaned). (2) 6/15/2018 - Lower Bouldin Flags - ~95 Mya - first picture (as found), second p
  21. Despite the heat I managed to get a solo trip down to the Ramanessin yesterday afternoon. I was hoping after the rains this past week things might be a little stirred up. On my last post I joked about the tiny super worn mosasaur tooth breaking the curse... and I am happy to report I was right. Little bit of everything this trip (small squares are 1/4 inch): Big mosasaur tooth, worn, but it made me very happy Pretty nice little lobster/shrimp Partial ratfish plate Coral/sponge? Crow shark t
  22. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom

    Marine reptile tooth

    I visit a shop in Athens, i seen this tooth in a box with common mosasaur teeth, and i bought it because don't look like a common mosasaur tooth. Platecarpus? Plesiosaur? Fish? The size is approx. 2 cm/0,8 inch.
  24. Hello everyone! You may have seen this tooth in my last trip report. When I posted this, I originally had it labeled as just Mosasaur (honestly, mostly because I know very well the 'can of worms' you are opening to try to get more specific on an isolated reptile tooth). Curiosity got the best of me and I ended up showing it to every contact (professional and local) that I have and at this point, I believe this tooth to be a Plioplatecarpine/Platycarpus (a deep-sea Mosasaur) which was the most common opinion. The characteristics that led me to this conclusion
