  1. 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!
  2. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon and I wrote a paper on Mosasaurus hoffmannii fossils from the Moroccan Phosphates. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/357836567_Occurrence_of_Mosasaurus_hoffmannii_Mantell_1829_Squamata_Mosasauridae_in_the_Maastrichtian_Phosphates_of_Morocco https://www.aaps-journal.org/pdf/JPS.C.22.0001.pdf Abstract: Marginal tooth crowns from the hypercarnivorous marine reptile Mosasaurus hoffmannii Mantell, 1829 are reported for the first time from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) phosphates of Morocco. Fossilized remains of this speci
  3. 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

    This Mosasaurus tooth measures 8.3 inches from Morocco. Can you tell me what species it is?
  5. I was told this is a Curry (or currii) mosasaurus, but now I am having problems identifying it. What are your thoughts? I think it's a beautiful specimen, but I just wish I knew more about it. Any help?

    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.
  7. A couple of weeks ago, I acquired a gorgeous fish and mosasaur association, from a seller on the web. It hails from the Cretaceous of Khouribga, Morocco, unprepped, just split out of the rock! Here's the fossil in question! Ignore the mess in the background... Can you believe this thing is 70.6 - 66 million years old!? Look at the sheer awesome preservation on that fish spine; absolutely stunning! So, story time. The tooth is from the species "Mosasaurus beaugei", a pretty large mosasaurine. Here's a nice image (or, 2 images...) of the size o
  8. Hey guys! While on vacation my brother nephew and I wondered into a fossil shop and I helped them pick out a nice tooth and jaw from a mosasaur which I identified as Mosasaurus beaugei. My question is, is it a composite or a partial jaw with tooth? I'm leaning towards composite, but I wanted a second opinion. Don't worry about my nephew, he's aware it might be a composite and is THRILLED with it either way and it wasn't expensive. Quarter is for scale. Thanks!
  9. Hi everyone ! i need a bit of help . I recently found the mosasaur jaw that i really like and in my budget range so i just want to make sure before buying this 2 . Any repair / restoration ? or any red flag on this 2 jaw pieces ??? Seller said to me that no Repair / restoration on this two jaw . Jaw number 1 Jaw number 2 as always thank you in advance guy ! Regard Guns
  10. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

    The great (crocodile) tooth identification game

    Some time ago I came across this seller selling a lot of pliosaur teeth without provenance, most of which can be attributed to misidentified teeth of Zarafasaura oceanis, the elasmosaurid of the Moroccan phosphates. However, amongst these same teeth, I also came across the below few of teeth that I'm having difficulty identifying. Tooth 5 is obviously a mosasaurid tooth from the Ouled Abdoun basin and probably belongs to Eremiasaurus heterodontus; tooth 1 seems to originate in the Kem Kem; and I suspect there are at least a few crocodile teeth amongst the rest (at least tooth 4). But I've grow

    Real Mosasaurus jaw section?

    From oued zem maestrichian phosphate bed Moroccan..traded some Carcharodon planus for what I believe or hope is an actual Mosasaurus jaw section Hope someone here can make a stab at what Mosasaurus it may be from.
  13. Ahoi. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Tried it anyway. Because of the size in my chosen scale of 1/20 I decided to model it on Platecarpus, although I don´t claim to be accurate to even genus level. It´s just the medium s
  14. Hi again! I figured since you were all so helpful with the fake trilobite that'd I would show you the mosa tooth I bought from the same seller. How does this look? It hasnt arrived yet so this picture came from the seller. Then as a bonus, this is the trilobite I'm thinking of getting to replace the fake I'm sending back. This one has to be real right?
  15. My main concern, is it composite? What can you tell from these pictures?

    Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.
  17. Hi dear forumers. Need you help. May be some of you have a proper experience in printing 3d models of fossils. The great task appeared in my path. I trying to make a paleontology museum in my town. Our family have a more than 20 years of experience in paleohunting an we dream about showing to people what a beautyful and unique ancient creatures have been living here, near our home. And we want to show how interestin is our sciense: paleontology. We have a thousands of fossils of all systems from middle jurassic series, all of cretaceous systems to miocene series, in 300km zone aroun our
  18. Hi everyone! With my 6 years old son we have bought this precious tooth in a prestigious shop at Barcelona. They have tell us that is a Mosasaurus tooth, but I think not. It looks more a Spinosaurus tooth, maybe (sorry if I'm talking absurdity, I'm totally newbie...). The teller at shop was not the usual one, and it was not possible to ask him more information. Please, may you help me to identify the correct "former owner" for this tooth? My son and I will be very grateful for that. I'm posting some photos for the piece. The first one is from the other pieces at shop, that
  19. I was in creek bed and I came across several of these. I think they a mosasaururs am I correct? I was hunting for a couple of hours Saturday and Sunday. I found 15 different verts. busy weekend.
  20. Found it on online. Please tell me these are not fakes?
  21. I bought this Moroccan mosasaurus tooth in matrix some time ago. As you can see, it has a long scrape down the side. When I got it, I assumed it the tooth was damaged when it was discovered or prepared in Morocco. However, I saw a tooth for sale the other day on a website with a similar mark described as "feeding damage." What do you all think? Anyone seen this sort of thing before? Is there any way to tell feeding damage versus a more mundane type of damage?

    Big Brook Jaw Section?

    Hello everyone, I was in Big Brook nj for a little while today and found this interesting bone. I'm not to sure if it's identifiable but it does remind me of a jaw section like a mosasaur or croc. Any help will appreciated, if I missed an angle or need additional pictures do let me know.

    Spinosaurus or Mosasaurus

    Hello all. I bought this very neat large framed fossil a while back and the label says; “Fossil Vertebrae Dinosaur Spinosaurus Or Reptile Mosasaurus” Since I’m puzzled as the dealer was, though I lean Mosasaurus, I’m hoping some of you can help me identify what it is that I have. Personally I’m happy with either, especially considering the crazy deal I got on this specimen. If more images are needed I’ll provide them. Thanks in advance.
  24. Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to enlarge my fossil collection with a mosasaurus skull. However I am still not sure if this one is real or not. The teeth seem real but the skull make me doubt... can someone help me ? best regards Thomas
