  1. So you want to buy a Spinosaurus Claw? Then this might help you. This is a guide I wanted to set up for a while to help others in finding and buying a real claw. Its mostly focused on new collectors. I have noticed recently many people are searching and ending up with fake claws. This made me upset, and I wanted to reach out, and hopefully safe some people from this trap. A disclaimer: this is based on my experiences and opinions, by no means im a Paleontologist or do I know everything, but since I have started collecting, I have been obsessed with searching for cl
  2. The past few weeks at the Tucson Fossil I ran across a few fake Spinosaur claws but also was surprised how many good ones there were on the market. I also understand the issues with online claws so decided to put this topic out to help collectors gain a better understanding of them since they are very expensive. These are my opinions and welcome others since no one person as all the answers. There is no bullet proof approach you can take to insure you have a claw that is not totally fake or composited. There are some things you need to consider. - First try dealing w
  3. I see more and more material being made available from Laos especially Spinosauridae teeth and members asking about them. I'm not an expert from this locality just trying to pull together published information to help collectors on both Thailand and Laos teeth. Its never simple . Locality is very important in identification, so you really need to know the specific area where the teeth were found. Just Laos or Thailand is not acceptable Lets look at Localities and formations Nice image from the paper that described a Garfish that shows both Thailand and La

    Help with Laos tooth ID (Spinosaurid?)

    Hi! I have a tooth from the Gres Superieurs formation of Laos and I'm struggling with the ID. The person I acquired the tooth from suggested it was an undescribed spinosaurid - possibly Baryonychinae - due to the striations in the enamel. I'm not sure though, so I was hoping someone with more knowledge of teeth from Loas might be able to help me out. My first thoughts upon seeing the tooth were that it was likely to be a Pterosaur or fish tooth. It's certainly not Ichthyovenator as it's far too narrow. It's 0.88 inches long. Thanks in advance for any help! IMG
  5. Here is a spinosaurus claw for sale on an auction site. I can't see any major red flags except for some small repairs, but i don't know. What do people here think? It's 10 cm long

    Spinosaurid vertebra ?

    Hello ! Info from seller : Spinosaurid neck vertebra from kem kem . What do you think ? Best regards Guns
  7. Together is the price 140 euro / 150 US dollar + shipping (Paypal is preferred) Suchomimus: - Length: 0.84 inch - 21.3 mm - Location: Elrhaz Formation, Gadoufaoua, Niger, 112 million years, Albian, Cretaceous - Description: This Suchomimus tooth has noticeable ridges and good brown discoloration. These smaller Suchomimus teeth would make a great addition as although small they are in very good condition. Spinosauridae: - Length: 2.50 inch 63.5 mm - Location: Kem Kem beds, Begga, Morocco, 96 million years, Cenomanian, Cre

    Partial tooth: Spinosaurid or...?

    Hi all. I know this is not a great tooth by any standard. But to be honest, I do like how it shows its age. Also, it emphasizes how well preserved my other teeth are. And it is nice and chunky! The tooth has lost some of the features to make an accurate ID. Still, it looks Spinosaurid to me. Could it possibly be something else? It is 7 cm long and from the Kem Kem beds. Thanks!
  9. I can't figure out if suchomimus and baryonyx are the same animal. From what I gather they aren't, but does anyone here know?

    Spinosaurus Hand Bone

    Seller has this listed as a Spinosaurus hand bone with some repairs, no resto.... just wanted to get some of your guys opinions on it. Do you think it's real? Does it look like there's any restoration?

    Spinosaurid vertebrae?

    Good evening, these vertebrae are announced as spinosaurid, but it's posible to know just with the centrum preserved? At Kem Kem beds there are a lot of other reptiles so, it's posible to know with incomplete material like these?

    Is this a genuine spinosaurus tooth?

    I bought this tooth last year from a trusted local fossil shop, it was sold to me as an authentic spinosaurus tooth. Is this truly a spinosaurus tooth or is it from a croc (or something else)? Hoping I didnt get scammed.. Also, for future reference, how would I tell the difference between a spino tooth and a croc tooth?
  14. Hello! I saw a jaw fragment for sale from the kem kem beds, it's identified as crocodile. I've seen picsc of crocodile jaws before and that they have like a pitted texture, I don't see that very clearly on this one, but since this is out of my expertise I want to ask you guys who has more knowledge. Could it be something else like a spinosaurid?

    Baryonyx jaw? Tooth?

    This fossil is listed as a Baryonyx tooth with possible jaw underneath. What do members here make of it? Is it possible to tell whether it's a jaw or not alongside the tooth? Formation: Wealden formation, Hastings.
  17. An unusual mid-cervical vertebra belonging to a large spinosaurid from the Cenomanian Kem Kem Group of Morocco is described in this new paper. Here is one more example that continues to fuel the debate that there are multiple Spinosaurids in the Kem Kem Group https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/vamp/index.php/VAMP/article/view/29370 Conclusions from paper: The specimen ROM 65537 represents a new spinosaurid mid-cervical morphotype from the Kem Kem Group of Morocco, with a unique combination of characters not previous

    Kem Kem teeth

    Hi, just working and prep on a box full of Kem Kem material incl. some verts (will post later) and some nice teeth. below are two teeth which I would now label up as Spinosaurid indet. - can you guys confirm this? 1. a small one 2.3cm long:
  19. Came across this site hosted by Christophe Hendrickx a well known theropod Paleontologist. A lot of what he has is already provided in papers but this is the first site completely dedicated to the worldwide group of dinosaurs know as Spinosauridae Pretty cool. This site like many others has a bias toward what paleontologist believes and who he is associated with... so no mention Sigilmassasaurus. I found it interesting but its not gospel just another source of information and opinion. Remember theropods from the Kem Kem especially Spinosaurids are poorly understood and lots of

    Flat elongated Kem Kem bone ID

    I've got this long flat bone from the Kem Kem with a wide base, it was presumably attached to a larger bone. It also seems like it's missing the tip. I thought it might be a small spinosaurid neural spine but it has a weird lump of bone on one side so it seems like it is something else. Is this lump a muscle scar? Or a healed wound? And could this bone be an odd spinosaurid neural spine or is it something entirely else?

    Kem Kem croc jaw fragments ID

    I've got five jaw fragments from the Kem Kem of which I think they are from crocodilians. Any ideas as to what genus or species these belong would be appriciated. 1. No idea what this jaw is from, but my best guess is some crocodilian. 2. I also don't know what this is but also probably some crocodilian. 3. This one has a hard layer of sediment covering it and it's missing the underside of the jaw. It looks a bit like the dented part of a Spinosaurus dentary but it's more likely also crocodilian. 4. Definitely crocodilian, has a typical croc texture (lots of dents). To me i

    Croc or spinosaurid teeth? Kem kem

    Spinosaur Caudal Vertebra

    A distal caudal vertebra of a Spinosaurid. What's slightly unusual about this vertebra is that it's slightly more slender than most Spinosaurid caudal vertebrae, which have a more square shaped centrum as seen from the lateral side. I am currently uncertain whether this is individual variation or that it might be taxonomically significant.
