    Unusual Kem Kem Tooth

    Here is a tooth I acquired recently acquired. It was mixed in with a bunch of the usual kem kem stuff, gar scales, sawfish barbs, small damaged spino and croc teeth ect. This tooth stood out so I got it and wonder if anyone has any clues? The mesial serrations are smaller than the distal side and they stop about a quarter of the way up the tooth. About 13mm long base is 8 mm from distal to medial and 5 to 6 mm from lingual to labial end.
  2. Dear Forum, I bought the following 'fossil' - labelled 'Kem Kem Vertebra Process'. I was wondering whether anyone could identify for me to what type of dinosaur it once belonged (i.e. sauropod, theropod... the more detailed the better!)? Best Regards Jamie
  3. Hi all -- Found this claw for sale and am really interested in buying it. Seller acknowledges that exact species of theropod cannot be determined but that the fossil is from a good source in Kazakhstan. There do appear to be theropods from the region. Any obvious signs in these pictures that this is a fabrication? Just at a glance, it looks like the grain does follow the curve, which is the first thing I'd look for. Anything else that stands out? Relatedly, any signs that this is a composite toe (with bones from several individual dinosaurs put into one display)?
  4. Hi all! Soooo I just recently made a trip to my local mall, and the upscale mineral/fossil shop there had a bowl of assorted cheap Moroccan fossils for sale. As far as I could tell they were of Cretaceous marine origin, most of them being goblin shark and Cretolamna teeth. However there were a few interesting finds, including a small theropod dinosaur tooth!!! You bet I paid my $0.50 for that sucker =p Also, I found some sort of jaw bone, an unknown shark tooth (pathological?), and a possible fish skull cap maybe? I’m going to post them to the Fossil ID page for some help, I don’t know my Moro
  5. I purchased these as Ingenia yanshini which I think became Ajancingenia, which then became and is currently Heyuannia. The formation provided is the Djadochta Formation, but that doesn't seem right since Ingenia/Heyuannia is not found there as far as I've checked. Unfortunately, there isn't provenance other than Mongolia attached to them to say whether they come from the Barun Goyot Formation where Heyuannia yanshini is found. While I'm not necessarily doubting the original ID, I just don't really know. I'm not expecting a positive or diagnostic ID to the genus level, but I wanted
  6. Hi everyone! As I have mentioned several times, being a 3D artist I am trying to move into the field of paleoart. Recently I have started modeling Ceratosaurus nasicornis in 3D, and I really want to make it as accurate and plausible as possible. Here is what I have got so far: a basic model done in 3ds Max. After this I am planning to take it to ZBrush and add more muscle definition, sking wrinkles, scales and other fine details. At this stage this is just the base and I would like to share it with you guys in order to receive some feedback from those who know their dinosaur anatomy. Did
  7. Really beefed up my collection this year: Amber: Spent a while with my trusty loupe combing through Chiapas amber sold by the gram and found a very uncommon flower petal. The seller took a moment to offer up a page on his phone about the healing properties of amber, and he gave me a polite nod and laugh when I said I'm more interested in the scientific properties. I like dead stuff. Big Claw: Always wanted a thick beefy claw! Labeled as a Carch claw from Kem Kem but after reading some of @Troodon's posts it could be a Spino or generic theropod. Really love the shape

    Hell Creek Dromaeosaurid

    Hi y'all, I picked up this gorgeous Dromaeosaurid tooth. It was listed as Acheroraptor and I bought it thinking it was one. However, upon receiving it and taking some measurements, I believe it may be a candidate for Dakotaraptor steini, as it virtually matches one in @Troodon's collection in every metric. It has a semi-oval base, with no ridges or facets commonly seen on Acheroraptor. The mesial carina is straight, and terminates almost 1/3 the CH from the base. Dromaeosauridae Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., MT, USA CH: ~ 10.5 mm CBL: ~ 6 mm CBW: 3 mm Mesial de

    ID Bathonian theropoda

    Hello everyone, (I'm new to this forum so please forgive me if I'm missing something important). I've recentenly saw a theropod tooth listed for sale. This tooth was described as being found in the Bathonian section of the El Mers group, and is described as an Megalosaurid. I've tried to read upon some information, but i've come to notice that there is very little avaliable. I saw a post on this forum saying that theropod teeth from El Mers are still under debate, and that teeth from the Bathonian section require the gypsum matrix to be present in order to identify it as being Batho

    Miscellaneous Theropod Claw

    On the third day of our Hell Creek trip in Baker, Montana I stumbled upon a small theropod claw with identical blood grooves running down either side of it. Noel and I looked around for references but found no conclusive match for what it could be. It is 1.3 cm long, roughly .3 cm in width. @PaleoNoel
  11. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jur

    Hell Creek Vertebra

    Thanks for taking the time to check this out. The vert is ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from Hell Creek Fm, Powder River County. I've been having a frustrating time trying to make better sense of this, since, as for as I know, there have been no Dromaeosaurus IDs in HC. Are any of you able to shed light on the likelihood of it being dromaeosaurid and anything beyond that? The measurements are 1.875" long * 1" wide * 1.625" tall. (I have a vert centrum ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from a Judith River Fm and it's only about 0.8" * 0.4*0.5. Position may well explain the huge size difference, but I'm not sure

    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

    Unknown Theropod Toe Bones

    Hello, I surface collected these two associated and sequential toe bones from the Horseshoe Canyon formation, but can't quite get a definitive ID on them. After a bit of research they appear to correspond most closely with Albertosaurus, but I hope to get a second or third opinion before I label them. I know that theropod toe bones can be tricky, but I'm hoping that the claw has some diagnostic features. Thanks! Bone 1: Bone 2:
  15. I am just driving back from a fantastic 5 day collecting trip in Southeastern Montana. I had the opportunity to collect on a private ranch that had not been heavily hunted for several years. Our group made quite a few interesting finds. I am hoping that someone on the forum might be able to assist in identifying this unusual bone. It is definitely theropod and based on the size, likely tyrannosaur. It appears to be a portion of the skull but I am having trouble matching it up. I apologize for the lousy pictures in advance. The bone measures approximately 5-6

    Atlas Mountains theropod tooth

    Hello, thoughts on this? It is described as theropod. From the El Mers Group. Boulmane Province Jurassic. 1.25 inches. Seller says the tip might be repaired. Now, is it as described--location wise? Apparently there is a Kem-Kem related Cretaceous deposit also in the Atlas Mountains, so some teeth described as Jurassic actually aren't? So, is this a Jurassic one, and can anyone possibly narrow it down to a more specific species? Also, any signs of fakeness or restoration? there is a fair bit of matrix on, which I know is a red flag with Kem Kem fossils. But i

    Moroccan Abelisaurid tooth?

    Hi! I've been eyeing these supposed Abelisaurid teeth from Morocco (Kem Kem beds?), but I'm unsure if they are what they're labelled as. Are these two Abelisaur teeth? Or are do they belong to another theropod in the formation? (Mostly being confused with how one differentiates KK "raptor" teeth from true abelisaur teeth) Tooth A: Images 1 to 4 Tooth B: Images 5 to 8 I've read @Troodon's fantastic guide to Kem Kem teeth. However, as a very amateur fossil collector, I'm only able to identify but the only feature I am able to identify as abelisaurid is the mesial side being curv

    Pectinodon tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Another shot of the Pectinodon tooth featured earlier in this album, this specimen was found by my dad and is one of two Troodontid teeth in my collection.

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.
  20. Hi All, I'm new to this forum and thought I'd send over images of my theropod teeth plus one extremely impressive sauropod from Madagascar. Hope you like them! Paul

    Small Lance Formation tooth

    Hi, I am interested in this tooth, and wondering if someone can narrow it down further. It is theropod tooth, from Weston County, Wyoming, Lance Formation. Waiting to hear back from seller on exact measurement, but included a photo of it near a tape measure. Thanks

    Dromaeosaurus albertensis Tooth

    This is my first attempt at getting a Dromeosaurus albertensis tooth from Judith River fm. I've largely been avoiding buying dromeosaurids like the plague that aren't Acheroraptor or Saurornitholestes. Provenance: Hill County, Montana The tooth is repaired, and I had to realigned it while restabilizing it with butvar. The tooth doesn't seem to perfectly fit together, or too much butvar ended up in-between. There does not appear to be any serrations on the mesial edge, and it doesn't appear to have any trace of serrations, at least not that I can see with a macroscope.
  23. Hi everyone. Tonight I'd Iike to share my most recent find: an absolutely tiny theropod tooth I found late at night sorting through what remains of the Aguja fm. matrix I purchased last year. I knew it would pay to be thorough and I was delighted to see the glint of enamel in a triangular shape eventually appear. Additionally, it has just taken the crown (no pun intended) for smallest theropod tooth in my collection, at only 2 mm in length and just over 1 mm in width. I'd be interested in reading your opinions on it's identity, I'm thinking either dromaeosaur or troodontid but I'm not sure.
  24. Hi all, I could not resist and took another shot on my quest to obtain a Dakotaraptor tooth. Here the tooth in question this time: It was found in the Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County. Measurements are: CH 1,41 cm - CBL 0,68 cm - CBW 0,3 cm - denticles per 5mm are 22 mesial and 19 distal. Note the slight tilt of the denticles towards the tip of the tooth. It's the best fit I have found so far, what deviates from the dePalma description is the shape of the base, it has a pinch, but I would not consider it rectangular. As a side note, it looks exactly like the base of Acheroraptor

    Theropod Indet. Tooth

    Hi folks! Received a new theropod indet. tooth today from the ever exciting Kem Kem. I was tentatively leaning towards a Carcharodontosaurid indet i.d., in line with morph type 3 in the always handy guide from @Troodon, but a few properties of the tooth have me wanting to get some extra opinions. Measurements: Crown Height: 27mm Crown Base Length: 10mm Cross Section: 7mm Mesial serrations: 5/mm (midline) Distal serrations: 3/mm (area just above damage at midline) There is a neat repair at the tip, a bit of d
