  1. 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

    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

    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.
  7. 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

  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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?

    Theropod indet. from Niger

    Hi everyone, I have here an indeterminate theropod tooth from from the Tiouraren Fm of Niger. The locality given to me was Tiouraren Hill, Téneré Desert. I've used Troodon's thread to narrow down the possibilities: 1.23" long 0.49" wide Distal serration density is 2.33/mm (mid-carina) Mesial serration density is 2.33/mm (near the tip; no serrations visible mid-carina) It's a partial tooth so I cannot get accurate base/height ratios. I'd appreciate any help identifying this. Thank you, Bellamy

    Suchomimus tooth or croc?

    Hello everyone! I got this tooth from a seller, he said that it was found in Niger but he don’t know that it suchominus tooth Or Croc tooth. Can you help me to have a look on it? thanks guys
  20. This is a sauropod tooth from Irhazer formation, Niger. It measures almost 2 inches from tip to base, and the widest part measures 0.9 inches. The seller mentioned this tooth may be a Jobaria, but there is no Jobaria have been described from the Irhazer formation. The Irhazer formation underlies the Tioraren formation where Jobaria was reported. The only spoon-shaped teeth sauropod known from the Irhazer formation is Spinophorosaurus, but the teeth has no serration on it. According to the paper 'Sauropod Tooth Morphotypes from the Upper Jurassic of the Lusitanian Basin (P
  21. I saw a tooth of an Tyrannosaurid Indet. The price looks good and the size is 3.3 inches including the repaired lower end. The seller told that this is from Judith River Formation, Northern Montana, and No restoration. Can anyone find any evidence of restoration? I can't find any... And.. this is another one from the same seller. This is also Tyrannosaurid indet, and from JRF.

    Niger Theropod (+Fish) ID

    I recently purchased Niger fossils, and as expected, provenance was poor. I know it's ill-advised to buy fossils without good provenance, but I decided to take a gamble here. There was a sliver of hope in getting provenance as the seller could contact their source in Niger, but alas, outside Agadez is the best they got. The first fossil was sold as possible Kryptops, and 2nd just Theropod. I also got fish fossils from the same group. Elrhaz, Irhazer II, and Tiouraren appear to be the 3 formations in that region, and most fossils from Niger you often see for sale are sup

    Niger theropod tooth ID

    Hello all, I have acquired this theropod tooth from Irhazer shale, Tiouaren formation, Niger. It’s Jurassic in age. The tooth is 4 cm and has distal serrations but the mesial ones are gone. Managed to get a distal count at approx 3 per mm. I was wondering if maybe @Troodon and others can help with the ID. I’m familiar with the already existing Niger theropod post on here but I didn’t find matches really. Could it be Afrovenator or Spinostropheus? Thanks.
