  1. Interesting paper. Paul Sereno et al. challenge the hypothesis that Spinosaurus was fully aquatic presented in Ibrahim et al. 2020b paper. They also have a different skeletal reconstruction to support their position. https://elifesciences.org/articles/80092 Spinosaurus and Suchomimus Differences between the two skeletal reconstructions

    Spinosaurus claw

    Hello everyone, I saw a Spinosaurus claw. I wonder if it has red flag? It looks natural
  3. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi
  4. Hello all! I'm new to the fossil game and I'm considering buying my first tooth but after doing some light research, I'm not sure if the tooth I am looking to buy is 100% from the same tooth... So, according to the seller, this is a 6.5" Spinosaurus tooth (from Kem Kem, Morocco) and they have said that some repair has been done... They've glued 2 areas of the tooth (they haven’t specifically stated which area is) and also mentioned that they've repaired some of the enamel. From the pictures, I guess that it is the very end of the tooth where the enamel has been repaired

    Spinosaurus Vertebrae?

    Bought this fossil recently. Was told it is a Spinosaurus Vertebrae from Oued Zem, Morocco. I'm questioning if it is really from a Spinosaurus since both ends appear to be concave, and I read somewhere that one end should be convex. One end seems to be much more concave than the other, but still doesn't seem right to me. I'm a novice collector, so I was hoping to get some expert opinions. I hope these pictures I took are adequate for some type of identification. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hello, Saw this posted the other day and its a bad fake, buyers beware.
  7. Hello, thoughts on this Spinosaurus claw, please? The color looks very odd to me--usually, claws I see for sale are more of a sandy color. But then--given the fact there are a lot of faked spino claws out there, I figure I can't really go with what I spot online. Also--the mosmatyched colors--some light bits, some dark bits. Finally--the structure of the claw is very rough. Much rougher than other claws I see online. Also--when I look at the groove, it's very rough and jagged. Not a smooth shape. I would appreciate others thoughts.
  8. According to the owner/ seller, he showed his fossils from somewhere. And he marked them as the Phalanges of Spinosaurus and the Phalanges of Carcharodontosaurus. My question is, how do he classify them? For me, they are totally same. Would you share the knowledge about this part to me, please? Thank you. The pictures are following, Phalanges of Spinosaurus Phalanges of Carcharodontosaurus

    Is this a spinosaurus claw?

    Is this a Spinosaurus claw fossil? If anyone knows, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
  14. Good morning. I would like to buy a Spine of Spinosaurus Fossil. But I'm not sure that is real or not. Would any expert give me some advise, please? Thank you so much
  15. I have not done red flags in a long time. Decided to look at just an auction site and was appalled at what I saw. Here is a small sampling of what I saw. A 5 1/2" Spinosaurus claw. Its a composite/fabricated and the red flag is just the price. You may not be knowledgeable to determine if its a composite or otherwise but these claws should be very expensive(in the thousands) and when you see them cheap especially big ones its a red flag. Most of the bones sold are identified as Spinosaurus. So be careful there are other reptiles out there. This one is from a
  16. I am a total noob, this is my first fossil. Bought it just yesterday. I fell in love with Spinos long ago and when I realized I could actually purchase a tooth, I was on it. I got it at a pretty reputable store here in Tokyo that works adjecent to a science organization, so I felt quite confident buying it despite not knowing a single thing about what to look out for in terms of quality. The label says it's from Taouz, Morocco. It's 8.5cm / 3.3 inches long. I would love some feedback on whether this tooth looks restored or repaired in any way, or any overall comments on
  17. 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 bone?

    Hi All, I acquired this piece of fossilised bone fragment recently and was assured that the specimen was Spinosaurus and came from the Kem Kem group, unfortunately I was not able to gather which formation it was from within the group. Although this piece is fragmentary, its hour glass shape and the thin ridges along each side give me hope that someone would know where on the skeleton this bone is from. I've done some quick research and found that Spinosaurus vertebrae are of similar shape but I am not 100% confident that it is a vert. If anyone has any idea which bone i
  19. I recently purchased this Spinosaurus tooth from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco, it’s 3 3/8” long and supposedly has no repair or restoration according to seller. Does the tooth show any signs of repair or restoration? Is it entirely real?
  20. Saw this for sale, seller claims it was from a museum and it was found in kem kem. It is 8 cm long and I was wondering if it’s a real claw, as I don’t know much about claws.

    Spinosaurus bone?

    I’m gambling that this is a spinosaur bone, as it is supposed to be, but I really don’t know. Can anyone ID what this bone is, and if it’s spinosaurus or not? It’s apparently from Kem Kem. Thanks so much for any, and all help:)
  22. I saw this item for sale, said to be a Spinosaurus jaw fragment with an associated tooth glued on. Is it a composite, and does it belong to Spinosaurus?

    Spinosaurus or crocodile tooth?

    Hello! I bought this tooth from a gift shop. It was labeled a spinosaurus tooth. I’m just wondering if it most likely is a spinosaurus tooth, or a crocodile or something else? Thank you!
  24. 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
