    Anyway to identify some isolated mosasaur teeth? I got these from one of those little fossil kits when I was a kid. I'm assuming they're from Morocco.
  2. The unnamed giant Tylosaur of the Moroccan Phosphates is revealed at last. The great and mighty Hainosaurus is a previously unrecognized macropredator present in the latest Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) of Morocco. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/365437927_First_Record_of_a_Tylosaurine_Mosasaur_from_the_Latest_Cretaceous_Phosphates_of_Morocco Authors: @Praefectus @BrennanThePaleoDude @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon Abstract: The latest Cretaceous Phosphates of Morocco preserve the highest biodiversity of mosasaurid squamates anywhere in the world. Intensive sampling over
  3. Hi. I would be interested to know how and where people have managed to get their better quality mosasaur teeth? I would have wanted to get good size and quality Mosasaurus hoffmannii or beaugei tooth, but I have no idea where to get them. Also nice Hainosaurus tooth is in the bucket list, but I don't know how rare those even are. Most my better tooths are from auctions and those are my main source for teeth. But those species I have not really seen, atleast attached ones. We dont have fossil shops here and most you can find are just bulk teeth and asking some
  4. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Mosasaurus tooth

    Hi again. I got this tooth and would like to get sure which species it is and which part of the mouth it could be from. Its in the matrix so sadly Im unable to see labial side. Tooth is curving towards so its lingual side if Im right. I marked tooth as A and believe it would be M. beaugei, but facets were bit difficult to see and get in a picture, but I would count 5 or 6. Its medium size and almost dagger shaped, so I think its not robust enough to be M.hoffmanni. I believe tooth marked as B would be M.beaugei with its more prismatic nature and having 5 labia
  6. Hello, This is a composite mosasaurus skull. As I can't afford the real deal, I normally look into this seminice pieces to try to find one that it's not a mess. I saw this one where the seller states that som teeth has been replaced (totally expected) and that has some repairs an reconstructions. At least for me comparing it to some other composite mosasaur skulls where all the bones are a mess, this seems more beautifully composited with a big part of the bones where they should be. Do you see some big red flags of it being a mess in reality with lots
  7. Hi, so i just got this mosasaurus jaw from morocco, could someone help me to figure out if it is real? If so, is it possible to say from which exact species it is? Its said to be from morocco... Thank you in advance!

    Real Mosasaurus tooth?

    Hello, some years ago i bought this "mosasaurus tooth" at a fossil convention. Sadly I cant remember the details the buyer gave me exept that its supposed to be from a mosasaurus. Now that I have a few more fossils I am pretty sure that its fake... Could somebody please help me? Thank you!
  9. Hey, I have a question... what do you think of the fossil i found at a store? Is it real? It's from ca. 80 Million years from marokko.
  10. Hello everyone, I recently acquired a monstrously huge Mosasaurus beaugei skull which I would like to display in my house The skull measures 170 cm / 67" and weights 85 kg /187 lbs Does anyone have similar fossils which they mounted on their walls, or displayed in their cabinets? Thank you.
  11. Is this a genuine Mosasaurus jaw fossil? If anyone knows, please let me know. Production area: Morocco Size: Long diameter of mother rock about 30 cm I appreciate everyone's comments! thank you very much!
  12. Species level identification obtained from facet count (3-5 prisms labially; ~5 or indistinguishable lingually). See more information in Rempert et al. 2022 - Occurrence of Mosasaurus hoffmannii Mantell, 1829 (Squamata, Mosasauridae) in the Maastrichtian Phosphates of Morocco.
  13. Hi, I would like to buy this skull of mosasaurus, but I am not sure that it is a real fossil… could you help me please? thank you very much

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.
  15. Hi everyone, I am trying to find the following stuff someone is willing to trade. - Mosasaurus partial jaws or matrix pieces, not repaired or restored. From Morocco. - Belgian Megalodon teeth - Mastodon tooth - Quality Spinosaurus teeth, larger ones. I got a lot to offer, mostly teeth and jaws from dinosaurs and ice age relater animals.
  16. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in trading his/her mosasaurus jaw or partial from a site (Either United States or somewhere in Europe). I've got various amount of eurasian pleistoceen stuff, some dinosaurus teeth. Megalodon teeth of great quality too. Please if you know anyone, feel free to contact me!
  17. Hello, what do you think, can i go "wrong" with these fossils from morocco? Are they real? Many greetings

    Mosasaurus hoffmanni tooth?

    Hello, I have another mosasaur tooth ID question. This is listed as Mosasaurus beaugei from Kem Kem Morocco, on the small side at just over 4.1 cm. Based on what I recall @Praefectus said, is it possible this is actually a M. hoffmanni? It has very few, prominent facets, which are apparently diagnostic to hoffmanni rather than beaugei? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon Sadly the tooth doesn't seem in the best shape though. Thanks!
  19. Hi there members of this forum! Made the mistake(prety probably) and impulse bought this piece,which went by the name: "Mosasaur Dinosaur Jaw Teeth fossile" Im not shure it said from Morocco,but most stuff in the shop was there,so this one is probably i guess... Well now im kinda shure its "Jaw" section is made out of 3 pices,so im not shure if the rest is allso "legit". (I hope at least the theeth is real) So if any of you great fellows can help ID this.(Probably turns out to be some dessert folkart:) Sorry for the meh cellphone pictures ,and thanks
  20. Good morning all, Been looking at purchasing a Mosasaurus jaw, but know to be weary of composites. What do you guys think of this one?? Is it authentic and or compostie?? I appreciate the help!!

    Mosasaurus Tooth

    Hello and thank you for checking this out. I picked up this 2.7" tooth that supposedly comes from Oued Zem, Morocco. I know next to nothing about Mosasaurus teeth, but I wanted to see if a species could be assigned to it. Serrations?: Thank you!

    'Moose' the mosasaur

    I had the opportunity and good fortune to participate in the excavation and preparation of a mosasaur this past year. The specimen was discovered by a new friend, Allison, in a small unnamed stream adjacent to family property in east-central Mississippi (? Prairie Bluff Fm, Upper Cretaceous, Late Maastrichtian).Allison found the first bones in early May and contacted me for help in identifying the bones through a mutual friend. I'm far from an expert, but was able to ID the bones (a radius and vertebra) as mosasaur. She was really excited, since the bones were her first vertebrate fossils othe

    Mosasaur tooth with bitemark?

    Hey guys, I just bought a relatively large Mosasaur tooth and I found what I believe to be another Mosasaur tooth mark near the base of the tooth, but I wasn't sure. Tell me what you think! Second picture I circled what I believe is the tooth damage.
  25. Hi everyone! I purchased this "Mosasaurus Skull" about a year ago. I'm certain that it's fake, but I was curious as to how bad of a fake it was (to humor me) and what kind of teeth these are. Thanks!
