  1. Ifrane, Morocco.

    Hi, gang. Some of you may remember the Southern Morocco trip I took in February. One of the places visited was quite near to me, about 70 km, lovely Swiss style mountain town called Ifrane where I found some Middle Jurassic brachiopods and echinoids. See http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93193-ifrane-middle-atlas-morocco/&tab=comments#comment-1026671 A friend offered to drive me up there for the day so off we went I decided to check some outcrops on the other side of the road this time so went and had a peek.Sorry, no photos this time as wifey didn't come, she was ironing her money and she has the only camera phone. The first outcrop is an oyster bed crammed with enormous oysters. This is incredibly hard and couldn't be broken safely. (safely as in getting the fossils out in one piece, not my own personal well-being). But I was lucky enough to find this monster just lying a the base: Scale in inches it would seem. I think I can clean it up a bit. Eventually. After i'd dragged my broken carcass a few hundred whatevers further on, the limestone became yellower, softer but still pretty hard. Lots of broken shell material, a couple of ammonite bits, but the only salvageable items were these couple of rather nice gastropods; again, they should clean up a bit better: Oh, the scale's in centimetres this time. I felt like a change. You know, it's amazing how often I've given up on a days collecting and then, on the way back to the car, you find something just in your path that makes the trip. Here was mine this time : Forgot the scale altogether. Sigh. Maybe four or five centmetres diameter. Harpoceras, perhaps? It has a very pronounced keel. @Ludwigia Roger? I'll be able to prep this pretty well in 2046 when i get to my Jurassic stuff. Nothing spectacular, but it's always so nice to be out in the field collecting. Life's Good. Adam.
  2. Trilobite ID

    I was given this Trilobite as a gift from a friend of mine He went past the same shop where I got my first fossils from (almost a year ago! ), saw a few bits in the window, went in and got me this Was told it is from Morocco, but no further info. I have had a look through my book, and think it's a Flexicalymene Can anyone confirm?
  3. Hello I have just bought through an online auction my first fossil, supposedly a Carcarodontossaurus tooth but I'm in doubt if it is real. Can you guys help me analyzing it's authenticity? Description and pictures follows below: LOCATION: Taouz, Errachidia Province, South Morocco GEOLOGICAL FORMATION: Ifezouane Formation, Red Sandstone Beds, KemKem Basin Size and weight: 50.5 mm • 1.99 in, 13g DESCRIPTION Finest grade Carcharodontosaurus tooth. It is complete, from the base to the tip. Its lateral serrations are deeply developed. This tooth has been stabilized on its surface by Paraloid B-72 to ensure its stability and consistency. This process does not affect neither the color nor any of the characteristics. It simply makes the specimen better preserved in the long term. It has small fractures that have been glued but no restored or fabricated at the lower part of the tooth.
  4. Ancient Shark Skeleton Found

    Ancient Shark phoebodus was eel like and resembled frilled sharks. More than one skeletal element was found in the mountains in Morocco. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-10-skeletal-phoebodus-morocco.html
  5. Hi Folks! This is a tough one. A friend of mine saw my recent Green River Formation acquisitions and it made him curious about his own fish fossil. I told him that I would try to get an ID for it. He has very little info on it - he got it at a flea market in Massachusetts for $2. The seller was from Morocco and he was also selling other Moroccan minerals and fossils. So, I think the fish is from Morocco. This is the only photo he has of it at the moment. Does anyone have any idea what this fish is? Thanks!
  6. Theropod finger with claw

    Hello! I have been offered these claw and vertebrae. Do you think I can make a finger with them? I think the two medium vertebrae are from hand finger. Thank you so much!
  7. Basilosaur lower frontal jaw section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Basilosaur(us?) frontal lower jaw seyction, from Boujdour, in Morocco. Hopefully the species can be distinguished with some more info
  8. Basilosaur frontal lower jaw section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Almost the entire frontal canine portion of the lower jaw of a Basilosaur. As you can see, the area where the absent front canines were, at the tip of the piece is visible, as well as where the missing last canines were situated. Although it was labeled as a Basilosaurus, I’m a little hesitant to consider that the case until I can personally corroborate the information. Apparently from Boujdour, I’m just having trouble finding information about which whales are, or are not found there, so until then I’ll leave it more open with just Basilosaur.
  9. Unidentified fish scale from Kem Kem

    Hello, On the internet I found and bought this fossil fish scale from the Kem Kem formation. Unfortunately, I do not know which fish she comes from, as she looks different than any other fish scales from Kem Kem that I know. A box on the sheet is 5x5mm, the scale is ca. 1,7cm long. I hope you can help me with that. Thank you in advance, Jesco
  10. Hello everyone, I'll be in Morocco in about two weeks and was wondering if anyone knew of any good fossil hunting tours I could go on? Initially I wanted to go with Atlasgeotours but alas they were all busy. I've heard Mohand IHMADI is very experienced and worth contacting. Would anyone else know of any good tours?
  11. Fish from goulmima

    I'm not knowledgeable much about fish this was collected in January from goulmima only now got to prepping it fully any ideas? It's 9.8cm long the skull looks to be crushed deformed.
  12. Someone online is selling this as a 'raptor claw'. Does anyone have any idea what it might really be? I suspect it's a piece of Kem Kem fish skull. The seller insists that it's a raptor claw.

  15. ID for this bivalve from Morocco

    Anybody have any idea on the indentification and age for this bivalve? Purchased online ex china (was advertised as from the "Devonian of Yunnan", but is clearly from younger deposits of Morocco). I have found conflicting ages on the net: either Cretaceous or Eocene. Some say from the Dakhla region others from the Essouria region.

  18. Theropod Tooth - Kem Kem

    As I'm forever on the look out for unidentified theropod teeth, just thought I'd pop this one up for a second/third opinion. It's listed online as Carcharodontosaurus, but I'm not 100% feeling it. The base width appears to be quite narrow, and the serrations seem to strongly increase in size towards the apex. The larger denticles almost look chisel shaped and there's an apparent lack of interdental succuli present too. Probably just positional variation of a Carch, but always worth a double check. Length is approx. 3.5cm. There are sadly no photos of the cross sectional view. Close up of distal denticles:

  23. Morocco - theropod or croc?

    Hi, I recently acquired this eroded, agatized vert, collected in Morocco. It was sold as a theropod, but a friend thinks it’s a crocodilian. Is there any way to tell? Thanks!
  24. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  25. Kem Kem bone Id

    hi there I could use some assistance with a pair of bone IDs. They're Cretaceous, reptile, from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Any help would be appreciated. I think the smaller of the two is a tibia? The second bone is in a reply to this post
