  1. 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
  2. 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

    Spinosaurus aegyptiacus

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Spinosaurus aegyptiacus Stromer 1915 Location: Kem Kem Beds, Morocco Age: 95 Mya (Cenomanian, Upper Cretaceous) Measurements: 7x2 cm Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Subphylum: Vertebrata Class: Reptilia Subclass: Diapsida Superorder: Dinosauria Order: Saurischia Suborder: Theropoda Family: Spinosauridae
  4. Here by my new Spinosaurus Aegypticus tooth from Taouz, Morocco. It is 4 1/2 inches. The colors are less common than your regular Moroccon Spinosaurus teeth. It has 0 restoration done to the tooth, and the quality is very high. Which I find special about this one. Noticed some slight patho and serrations on this tooth too? Could someone explain the patho perhaps.
  5. Good day and thank you for reading! I bought a 7-inch Spinosaurus claw in an auction and was hoping to get a second opinion on the condition and authenticity. I can send it back within a month for a full refund. I am also hoping for some pointers in knowing if is repaired or a composite. I have read many of the forums on here, but I have more questions. The length is 7 inches, but I do not have a ruler at the moment. This fossil is supposedly from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco. Any help is appreciated! Btw I do not have many fossils and plan to display this one to the public at my work if I keep
  6. Just seen this was published on the 26th of May 2022 https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.05.25.493395v1?fs=e&s=cl&fbclid=IwAR14IHzQeYGdAfzZqcrIWKW3ZqkdIeTOy22S168b2dFEKPy7oe6a-ITIzmM
  7. hi i try to reconstruct a spinosaurus skeleton, i miss some bones of course, lot of bones ares in privates collection,and it s difficult to access them. my idea is : if you have in your collection some cervicals vertebrae or dorsals , the size is not a problem, i look for 3D models of them. i look also for the 3D models bones of the front limbs. thanks for help in this project.
  8. Hello everyone, I came across this Spinosaurus claw. I was wondering if this claw is genuine. It looks to me like it consist of multiple fragments added together. Thanks in advance. Location: Kem Kem beds Size: 13 cm
  9. I'm continuing my search for my first dino tooth. I came across this spino tooth: is real and in good conditions, or is reconstructed?
  10. Seeking input on this "Spinosaurus Tooth" specimen. Is it a genuine tooth? Has it had tip repair? Is the root behind the tooth genuine? How much touch up / clean up work was done to get it to look this undamaged? Is it constructed from multiple pieces? Etc. Specimen measures exactly 4 inches in length. Working with an inexpensive Android phone. I can't get an in focus picture of the end of the root. I tried many times. Not enough detail in those pictures. I can say that it's not just plain rock or fabricated matrix. It is either a tooth root, or bone-like in appearance.
  11. 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.

  13. online seller seems to have several of these claws. I was under the impression that they're pretty rare, so I'm thinking something is up. I understand that online is first red flag, but wanted to get your assessment anyway. Here is one of them. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hello there! I'm collecting fossils since I was a kid and I have a question, so I hope anybody can help. I bought a fossil years ago at my local fossil and mineral fair in Germany from a maroccan trader. It should be a Spinosaurus vertebra. But I'm doubting about the authenticity. It was quite cheap. But it's a real vertebra? (and even from Spinosaurus?) Thank you! greetings, Lilian
  15. I found this spinosaurus tooth online. It seems to have a mostly complete root. However, it does look like it has been repaired, and there might be some restoration, but I can't tell. Thanks for any help. The tooth also appears to have some striations along the carina.
  16. Paper finds strong support for aquatic habits in spinosaurids, associated with a marked increase in bone density. Paywalled paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-022-04528-0 Bone density of Baryonyx appears closer to Spinosaurus than Suchomimus which has lots of implications in its adaptation to aquatic life National Geo https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/spinosaurus-had-penguin-like-bones-a-sign-of-hunting-underwater Smithsonian https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/heavy-bones-he
  17. Hello, recently I have found a quite interesting dinosaur spine section. The seller claims that this is: Museum Quality Spinosaurus Dinosaur Spinal Section with Huge Vertebrae and Rare partial spines 55 Million Years Old Measures 12.5" x 10.5" inches. What do you think about the fossil? Best regards
  18. Hello everyone, Mid or early February 2022 Paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim did a talk of 60minutes about the Spinosaurus. I stumbled onto a small piece of the lecture while scrolling social media, I found it very interesting, but I can't seem to find it online. Does anyone know where I can see this footage or stream it? It would be very helpful Thank You
  19. Hi guys! I started venturing into fossil collecting recently. If anyone can help me, I have questions about a "spinosaurus vertebra" I bought. I started to distrust the seller after I had already made the purchase, although the reviews are practically 100% positive, I was afraid after some research and observing other cases. I didn't know the forum before to guide me, so what do you think? And taking advantage of the post, I also have doubts about this Pachycephalosaurus vertebra, what do you think?
  20. Hello, some time ago I found a quite interesting fossil. The seller claims: This is an authentic Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus vertebra Measures about 30 centimeters Location: Maroco Upper Cretaceous Approximately 10% restoration What do you think about the fossil? Best regards

    Need Help To ID Dinosaur Vertebra

    Hi everyone! I’m an amateur fossil collector who wants to collect and learn more about fossils and hope to learn more through this forum. Growing up I’ve always been fascinated by dinosaurs and sharks in particular. Today I went to a fossil show and found a vertebra that I found particularly fascinating. I bought it not knowing exactly what it was so I can chase the thrill of learning what it is and why. The man I had purchased it from had said it was from a spinosaurus. However, I’m skeptical because he was also marketing a tooth as an allosaurus tooth. He was honest man and had told
  22. First off, this is my first time posting on the forum. So hello everyone! I just got my hands on some Spinosaurus fossils, allegedly from the Kem Kem beds. Both are from a seller in Arizona. One of them is a hand claw, as seen below. I'm not 100% sure that it's from a Spinosaurus, so I hope someone can tell me. But it seems very real. The other specimen, though, has some bizarre properties. I thought it might be fake. But after doing some tests on my own, I'm only more confused. These are the vertebrae that I bough
  23. Saw this tooth while browsing. Looked so off and maybe entirely reconstructed or fake. Any ideas?
  24. Good evening everyone, today I have the fantastic idea to bought 5.5 inch spinosaurus tooth. The price was 4 times cheaper than normal. The seller told me that it was the same tooth but glued at four different parts. Please see at the attached photos the red flags. In the fifth photo you can see many black spots on the tooth. Are these black spots part of the fossilization or are they part of a glue made by human action? Do you think I was right to buy it or would you have discarded this tooth?

    Partial theropod bones

    Hello - Some time ago I bought two partial bones, both from Kem Kem beds, Morocco - The specimen on the left in the photo in my opinion could be the final part of the ischium of a theropod dinosaur (roughly 21cm x 21cm- possibly Spinosaurus?) and the other specimen a partial vertebra (21cm x 13cm) of the same species - I'm not an expert and I'd like to know other opinions about the ID of the two fossils - Thanks in advance, Fabio
