  1. Mosasaur Teeth

    Hi, I got a question: I have bought a tooth from the mosasaur Liodon. It is very find and all, but then i found this website, that said that the teeth from Liodon doesn't have any serrations. Then i got a little confused, because on the Liodon tooth i bought, i can clearly see serrations. So is this not a Liodon tooth after all, or is this just wrong information? Can somebody clear this out for me?

    Latest addition - Collection of Mosasaur giant teeth crown from Morocco
  4. I found this pic of Mosasaur Jaw from Morocco (Kourhibga) but it doesn't look like one of those ugly-looking composites that are floating in the market (sorry, but no offense to those who love their looks - I just don't like the look of those cheap composites at all!). This one however, looks like this: From the look of it, the teeth seem to be very real as its common for the composite jaws, but the jaw section looks unlike the others that I have seen - they look broken and busted like the real thing. Is this possibly a very nice composite version of mosasaur jaw or this is actually a real excavated specimen? If such nice composites exist, how would u be able to tell the difference? Thx.
  5. Wondering if Mosasaur get pathological teeth like in sharks & megs? I got these teeth recently and I notice they look a little strange - they look kind of twisted and strange unlike other Mosasaur teeth I have come across. Any idea, if these are pathological or are they just from a certain genus with weird-looking teeth?
  6. Hey I have a collection of Mosasaur teeth that I have been trying to ID by looking around the internet for references, but to be honest, I am still pretty clueless and I can't quite really see any real difference or key features that define one genus from another, other than the Globiden. So I would like some help ID these teeth if anyone here who are familiar with these beasts could lend me a hand please: First, these are from Atlas Mountains specimens Tooth A (my guess is Prognathodon?) - length 5.45" Tooth B (Anceps?) - length: 4.62" Tooth C (another Anceps?) - length: 5.15" These are just the crown teeth - all from Khouribga Tooth D - length: 1.5" Tooth E - length: 1.7" Then there are the small ones, less than 1", all from Kem Kem, but I have heard that the small ones are nearly impossible to identify but here goes anyway in case if anyone can identify them: Anyway, really appreciate the assistance, thx

  8. Last week, I went to Stanford's earth sciences library to look for shark articles old and new. While looking at the most recent issues of various journals on hand (sadly, the university subscribes to far fewer than in past years), I noticed artwork of a mosasaur on the cover of the January 2012 issue of the Bulletin de la Societe Geologique de France. The issue emanates from a 2010 meeting of mosasaur specialists from around the world at the Paris Museum of Natural History (French initials being "MNHN") and contains several articles on mosasaurs. I am mostly interested in sharks but also collect a little of everything, and over the years, I've bought or traded for a few mosasaur teeth and bones, especially with specimens being so inexpensive from Morocco - even the uncommon species. I leafed through the issue and noticed an article titled "The Mosasaur collections of the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle of Paris." It is a 19-page review of the holotypes of several species collected in France, some historic specimens (including the type specimen of Mosasaurus hoffmanni, a war tropy the French army took from Holland in 1794) and a diverse selection from all over the world. The MNHN also contains the study material for Camille Arambourg's classic 1952 monograph on the vertebrates of the Moroccan phosphates (over 100,000 specimens - mostly shark teeth but also hundreds of mosasaur teeth, jaw sections, and vertebrae). I had heard that some of the genera and species names had been changed and have heard collectors go from Mosasaurus anceps to Leiodon anceps and back to M. anceps so it was interesting to see that just that one article would be a handy reference to update myself on current usage. I didn't realize that there were at least 10 recognized species of mosasaur from the Moroccan phosphates (would have guessed four or five). Anyway, I assume the mosasaur collectors on the forum already know about the issue but I thought it was worth mentioning. I neglected to note the titles of the other articles at the time (photocopied only that one article) but you can find them here: http://bsgf.geoscienceworld.org/content/183/1.toc You will also see that the focus on mosasaurs extends to the next issue (March 2012): http://bsgf.geoscienceworld.org/content/current Jess
