    What type of tooth is this?

    I found this bone/tooth in a creek, here in SW, MS. I was wondering if anyone could ID this piece?
  3. Hello everyone! I'm here seeking for help with the ID of this Mosasaurus rooted tooth. It comes from Ouled Abdoun, Morocco. The seller said that it's a pterygoid tooth. If you think it is correct, what are the distinctive features to recognize species and that it is a pterygoid tooth? Thank you so much!
  4. Hi. I got this random mosasaur tooth in matrix. It has this unsmooth texture, so I assume it could be an fake root. Also I see two damaged white marks. I am more interested about the crown, but I think its still good to know so I can notify about it if needed. Thank you for your answers.
  5. @caldigger post on finding two pieces of the same tooth reminded me of the tooth I found in New Zealand many years ago. The site is closed now, so I don’t think there is a chance of finding the root. But is there anyone on here that could accept this challenge? I’ll pay of course! Tooth overlying picture of complete tooth of same size and position showing the missing root. The slightly trickier bit is on the back where the root/enamel transition is partially missing. Scale bar = 2 inches total. A few more images of the tooth;
  6. Hello, I am thinking in purchasing this megalodon tooth. As is on the bigger size of megalodon teeth, I wanted to check if some of you can see some red flags. The seller says it comes from Indonesia and it's not reconstructed or repaired. Thanks!
  7. Hi, Wanted to get some opinions on this tooth. The tooth is from a Pliosaur with a root attached, what I want to know is if the root belongs to the crown. There is some matrix around part of the crown and extends just past the root which is my main concern. My initial thoughts are that the tooth and the root belong together so I just want to see if everything looks alright! thank you
  8. Is there any chance of narrowing this down? A friend of my daughter found it in Hertfordshire, south east England. It was from a disused gravel pit and is presumably Pleistocene. The underlying geology is Cretaceous. It appears to be a tooth root with a bit of crown surviving, maybe not enough to ID. Bear (Ursus deningeri premolar?) has been tentatively suggested though the images I can find suggest that it's too large for that. Possibly U. spelaus? but I really don't know anything about this kind of thing and that may be wildly out. @Fossildude19 @JohnJ Could you po

    Root or Animal? help

    Yes i have no Idea , learning in progress. Any help would be great!! i picked this up in Southeast Bexar county .
  10. 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.

    Has to be something

    I found this sticking out of a rock. I have already done lot’s of research and it seems like a sauropod or sinking of herbivores tooth. I’ve matched it up with a diplodocus tooth , but I’m not sure.
  12. I new to collecting and recently received this Spinosaurus tooth from a dealer who has a great reputation online. It was not a particularly expensive tooth and although the crown appeared to be in good condition from the dealer listing (and no repairs/restoration work was listed) the root has me a little suspect. No alarm bells from the listing photos but now that I have it in my hand and can see it from all angles, it got me wondering. The first couple of attachments are the dealers listing photos. The rest of the photos are mine. The main thing that has me curious is the colour v

    Large tooth root?

    Good morning, Coastal Brunswick Co NC here. found a really interesting piece. Appears to be some sort of tooth root perhaps? Remnants of enamel-like material on the inside and a void. Folks helped me ID a giant beaver tooth months back and at first I thought this perhaps could also be a match however looking at some pictures of beaver skull it does not have a root like this. I did find some photos of dinosaur teeth that have long roots attached this seems different. Checked whale teeth and couldn’t find anything similar. I don’t think it’s part of an antler. What do y’all th
  14. Hi all. I found this Spinosaurid tooth online. I like the colour of the crown, but I am not sure about the root part. Do you think it is real or is it, or parts of it, added on? Thanks!
  15. Hi! I'm a bit doubtful about this spino tooth: it is genuine? Is authentic only the tooth? The root is real or fake? I have read online that genuine rooted teeth of Spinosaurus are extremely rare... Thank for any help.
  16. 3'5 inch Carcharodontosaurus S. Tooth from the regular KemKem beds. However, I do have some suspicions of the root. Can anybody help
  17. Hello, Here is what I think is a nice lot of Hemipristis serra teeth from Florida, which are about 2~2.5cm size. However I have no experience with shark teeth or teeth in general so I was wondering if these seem real, if there seems to be any restoration/reconstruction? I think most of these have nice serrations, but how is the quality of enamel and root preservation? Thanks.
  18. I just had another bad experience with the famous auction site wich I can not mention by name as I understand it. (Even my cat could find it in an encyclopedia though...) This time I placed a quick bidding on a - as it was advertised - slightly restored big fully rooted tooth of a Prognatodon currii. To my exitement I won the bidding. Taking a better look at the photo's of the item my doubts grew and on its arrival yesterdag my worries were allas confirmed. The tooth was firmly and totally cemented to the root with a mixture of sand and glue (in a colour nearly matching the fossil). Othe
  19. Found this digging in greens mill run NC the other day - was in stuff that was a mix of the Yorktown and Cretaceous typical for that creek - so found with crow shark, great whites , giant whites , whale bone fragments and ear bones etc.. It reminds me in shape of the tooth root chunks I frequently find at gmr of the enchodus but obviously much much much larger than those and the bone on this is much more porous as well though I’m not experienced enough to know if that’s from aging wear or not, honestly. Anyhow if anyone knows what tooth root segment this might be from or if I’m totally
  20. Hi everyone! I recently bought this Mosasaur tooth with a complete root attached. It was found in Morocco. I know there are many fakes around where they glue a real crown to a fake root. I hope you guys can tell me more on it and possibly verify it's authenticity. (Size: 14cm in length) Thanks in advance!
  21. Hi all, here is a spinosaur rooted tooth with a strange cavity sort of thing at the bottom of the partial root. Does anyone know if it's a hike for a new tooth? Or is it just some kind of damage It's from the kemkem, 7.5 cm long
  22. Hello, wanted to share this rooted Carcharodontosaurus tooth, thoughts on it? How would you rate it? it measures 77mm , is the root original? Thanks for your opinions ! Best

    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?
  24. Hi everyone! This is a Prognathodon tooth from Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco. I know that lots of rooted mosasaur tooth are composite or fake, so I am so happy to get such a nice rooted tooth from a reliable seller! The root has groove, which is a place for a new growing tooth, and has a great texture. I wanted to soak this and wash out some dusts from the root, but I saw a thread that says I should not soak Moroccan fossils.
