    ID claw from Niger (Gadoufaoua)

    Hope someone can ID this claw from Niger. The seller says it was found in Gadoufaoua (Elrhaz Formation). But fossils often mix by the diggers. I don't know if the information is correct. It would be helpfull if someone can tell if its sauropod (as the seller claims) or if the fossil claw is theropod. Thanks for the help!

    Theropod Teeth from Niger

    Hello, I've got 5 teeth from Niger I thought I'd post all at once to get ID input. Thanks for any help you can offer. (1) Labeled Afrovenator. Tiouraren Formation of the Agadez region of Niger: Posterior looks to be about 2.75/mm Anterior looks to be about 2.5/mm (2) Labeled Afrovenator. Tiouraren Formation (Niger) Posterior looks to be about 2.25/mm Anterior

    Feeding wear or erosion?

    So I've got this theropod indet tooth that's from the elrhaz formation, or so the seller claims anyway. The tip is missing and I'm wondering if it's due to feeding wear or erosion? The tooth seems to have been quite worn by the owner, the distal carinae is almost worn away, but i suspect it's also eroded some. The angle of the break makes me think it's feeding wear, but il not certain. Any help is appreciated! @Troodon @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

    Spinostropheus tooth?

    Here is a 3.5 cm long tooth from the tiouraren formation, tiouraren hill, Tenere desert, Niger. It was listed as a possible spinostropheus tooth. What do people here think? @Troodon

    Theropod tooth

    This tooth is from Tiouraren Hill, Téneré Desert, Niger. I thought it may have aff to ceratosaurs and, looking up the formation, might it be Spinostropheus?
  7. Hi, This is a Sauropod tooth with the root still attached. The tooth crown is damaged missing some preservation but it is the root that I want to ask about. Does the root seem natural or are there red flags that I should be aware of? the tooth comes from the Tiouraren Formation in Niger and is just under 5cm. Thanks.
  8. So I just bought this of a marketplace, the seller claimed all their pieces were real. Its supposed to be from a Suchomimus tenerensis. I know zero to nothing about fossils but I thought this was really cool so I bought it. The inside appears to be a layer of hard sand, wich is weird to me as ive never seen this on a fossil. Could this be an indication of a fake? Someone else already pointed out that the little holes can be a sign of a casting. Would love some extra opinions.
  9. Hi everyone! I have my eye on a really nice tooth from the Jurassic of Niger but before I get it I figured I'd ask for an outside opinion on it's ID. The seller says it's a Sauropod from the Irhazer formation of Niger and measures 2 inches long and .9 inches wide. Is he correct? Can it be narrowed down any further than that? Any insight would be greatly appreciated as always!
  10. Hello! I saw this tooth listed online as a Suchomimus tooth from the Elrhaz formation in niger I wanted to know if it was a crocodile or a Suchomimus.
  11. Just purchased this Eocarcharia dinops tooth yesterday, and the seller is slightly questioning the ID, so I'm here asking for confirmation... Species: Eocarcharia dinops (?) Age: Lower Cretaceous (Albian) Formation: Elrhaz Formation Provenance: Gadoufaoua, Tenere Desert, Niger Size: Around 27mm (1") long; 11/0.5cm Distal Serrations Condition: No repair; stabilized in Butvar B-76 This is likely Eocarcharia, however the color may suggest Jurassic, though it could just be erosion. I checked old photos and they did come in with othe
  12. Hello, anyone able to id this for me? A theropod tooth 1.33 inch From Tiourarén Hill, Tenere Desert, Niger A bit battered, but there are serrations visible. Thanks for the help.

    Theropod tooth from Niger

    Recently got this partial theropod tooth, found in Niger, Gadoufaoua. Likely a Eocarcharia Dinops tooth. If anyone can help me confirm this species, that would be amazing!

    Tooth, or something else?

    Hello everyone. Just trying to see if I can get some idea of what this may be. Top of the fossil seems to be a tooth but the lower part looks more like bone material than tooth. I know it’s well worn, and I don’t expect any kind of classification. Just trying to figure out if it’s actually a tooth or something different.
  16. Hello, I am interested in two teeth. The first is Eocarcharia from the Elrhaz Formation, Niger - Gadoufaoua. Edited: Size - 1.63 inch Second is an unusual colored Carcharodontosaurus tooth from Morocco -2 inch. Now, is this Carch or one of the undescribed/indeterminate theropods and is there are repairs or restoration that people might be able to see? Thanks

    Suchomimus or croc?

    Hi all, I'm quite certain this is suchomimus, but just to be sure, what say people here? The base has the elongated shape of suchomimus, and it has carinae on both sides as far as I can tell @Troodon

  20. I won this tooth at auction listed as follows: Rare Afrovenator 0.62'' Theropod Dinosaur Tooth Jurassic Tiouraren Fm Niger Scientific name: Afrovenator abakensis, (Sereno et al. 1994) - Megalosaurid theropod Location: Tiouraren Hill, Téneré Desert, Niger. Geological Formation: Tiouraren Fm Age: Middle Jurassic, Bathonian stage ( 167 million years) Size: 1.6cm = 0.62 Inch After discussing this with several members here, there is doubt as to the identification... I contacted the seller and he finally replied, as follows: Dear Dan, Hope
  21. This Jurassic Croc Tooth was gifted to me awhile back. It's an unknown at this time but I'm hoping someone here with far more knowledge than myself can narrow this down. I have Sarcosuchus and Stolokrosuchus teeth in my collection and this is unlike anything I've ever seen. It actually has a ridge on both sides of the Tooth. I included a video as well... 20211027_162625.mp4
  22. Hey! I’m thinking about buying this possible Eocarcharia dinops tooth. I want to make sure that it is completely authentic and correctly identified. It does say it is from the Elrhaz formation in Gadoufaoua, Niger, but I just want confirmation (if possible because identifying theropods from Niger can be quite difficult) that this indeed an E. dinops tooth.

    Elrhaz Crocodylomorph Fang?

    While I was sorting through my collection of croc fossils, I came across these Elrhaz Formation teeth I bought 6 months ago and never did figure out what they were. I assume they are croc and not some kind of fish, though I could be wrong. I've never seen these apart from the one source I purchased them from. I've been told they were Sarcosuchus, then Kaprosuchus, then Suchomimus. Pretty sure it's not Sarcosuchus, and the images I can find of Kaprosuchus don't seem to match. Suchomimus, I don't know, but my gut feeling is, no, I've seen dozens of Suchomimus and fake-Sucho crocs, an

    Suchomimus tooth, with a root?

    Hi all. It seems I'm spamming the forum these days.. I came across this suchomimus tooth, and I'm aware many are in fact croc teeth. Does anyone here know whether this is suchomimus or crocodile?

    Teeth from Niger

    Dear TFF Members, I have recently purchased these two teeth - the seller said they come from Niger, Tenere, which probably makes them Pleistocene stuff, however which animal they belonged to, no idea. Please help :)) No. 1 No. 2
