  1. drotops megalomanicus?

    Just curios as to what species this is I looked at phacops but non seem to have such defined bumps for a better word also the eyes don't match up at least not to the ones I have looked at. Again questioning this id because what is exposed so far is rather small 0.86" by 0.80" and the size of the matrix block is 2.51" by 2.34" Also I am prepping this currently so not fully exposed yet don't know if that will hinder the possibility of confirming an id. Thanks Matt
  2. Can anyone please offer an opinion on this? The bone appears to be genuine, as far as I can tell, but all but one of the teeth are added in after. The back of the skull seems to be in the wrong position in relation to the frontal bone - does this imply compositing? Something looks 'off' to me, but I haven't seen all that many skulls like this. Combine that with the low-resolution photos and I thought I'd ask for some opinions. Thank you.
  3. Spinosaurus tooth?

    Hello friends, this looks like a spinosaurus tooth to me: is it correct? What's your opinion on this fossil? Thank you very much Alessio
  4. Hello everybody I see non specific mosasaur teeth from morocco all the time but what if I want to purchase a Mosasaurus tooth? How can I tell the differance? The following image is labeled as mosasaurus but how do I know that is true? Thank you
  5. Goulmima Pliosaur tooth?

    Hello, I recently bought this tooth and it was labelled as a Pliosaur tooth. I was wondering if this is true as I haven’t seen many fossils from Goulmima.
  6. A chevron bone? But from what?

    Bought this bone from a private collector some years back. It's a big chevron(?) bone from an unidentified creature, found in the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Anyone who would have a guess at what this could be from? It's obviously some big creature with a chevron bone at that size, so perhaps a large dinosaur or crocodile of some sort?
  7. What clam species are these?

    Hello, I am currently trying to label all of my fossil collection. I bought these fossil clams a few years ago, and I am wondering if any of y’all know more information about these clams. All the information I have is that they are from the Dakhla region in Morocco, and probably Eocene in age.
  8. Trilobite - Morocco

    I picked this up at a market stall in Fes this week. No information other than it is from South of me in Morocco. Because I thought it was sweet and it has a cracking bryozoan around the eyes (which are sadly broken) I think it looks like Devonian matrix and is a Phacopid? Phacops speculator? It is about 6 cm long. (straight line, not including the curve over) @piranha And anyone got any ideas re the bryozoa?
  9. So I had been browsing for some new fossils, and stumbled over a nice Moroccan fossil on a seemingly american website. And they're selling this (almost fantastic) fossil, of a part of a skull, allegedly from either a Carcharodontosaurus or a Deltadromeus (Most likely not a delta). But is it legit?
  10. So far only known from Ein Yabrud, Ramallah. Lit.: B. Khalloufi, R. Zaragüeta-Bagils, and H. Lelièvre. 2010. Rhombichthys intoccabilis, gen. et sp. nov. (Ellimmichthyiformes, Clupeomorpha, Teleostei), from the Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Ein Yabrud, Middle East: anatomical description and phylogenetic implications. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology 30(1):57-67
  11. What are these things?

    A friend of mine(yes, it really is a friend, not just me lol)apparently got these in a box of stuff, and they were labeled as being from mosasaurs. He asked if they were coprolites, but i don't know exactly how they were described. I told him no, I don't think any coprolites would be so smooth, even, and without any imperfections(I'm sure there are some like that out there, but that must be pretty rare. A random group of coprolites aren't going to all be like that, I'd imagine). I told him I don't really know and that id ask, but my best guess would be either gastroliths, or nodules. I don't think mosasaurs have gastroliths, but plesiosaurs do, and the ID of mosasaur seems bunk anyway, no matter what they are. As far as nodules, I don't know if nodules are found in that kind of site, so yeah......does anyone have any idea? Oh yeah, they're from Khouribga, Morocco.
  12. Hi all, Saw this trilobite pair up on auction. Does it seem authentic? Maybe the spines have been added on (or sculpted on)? Also do you think that the two trilobites were found together like this, or is one of them added to the block? These are all the pictures given, and there is no way to contact the seller. Hopefully the pictures are good enough! Thanks in advance, Max
  13. Hi all, Saw this trilobite up for auction, I was wondering how authentic it was? I know that Moroccan trilo's should often be bought carefully, but I don't know how to recognize fakes from real ones. These are all the pictures provided, and I can't see any way to contact the seller. But the pictures still seem decent, so I think (and hope) it is enough. Thanks in advance! Max
  14. In case anyone's interested, there are two rather nice quadrate skull bones from a Spinosaurus for sale on our favourite auction site. These are definitely quadrate bones from a theropod. And I'm fairly sure they are from Spinosaurus aegyptiacus as well as the morphology is very consistent. Note that the bones are upside down in the photo. It seems it's both a left and right bone. Though I doubt these are associated.
  15. im looking to see if anyone can id these Morocco fossils i have.
  16. Bought this a year ago for $48. Assumed the little bit of detail in the eyes meant it was authentic, but I'm not sure anymore. Seems like the spines are fabricated at the very least. Would love opinions since I'm still pretty green.
  17. I've bee looking around at different vertebrae but cannot seem to find a match any ideas? A rough guide in the right direction as to what it looks like it could be from? ventral to dorsal measurment are 12mm anterior to posterior is 15mm and lateral left to right side is 21mm Thanks in advance.
  18. African theropoda

    lakinlongrichspinosaujuvenilmoroc1-theropafricadinosontogs2.0-S0195667118302052-main.pdf Rebecca J.Lakin, Nicholas Longrich: Juvenile spinosaurs (Theropoda.Spinosauridae) from the Middle Cretaceous of Morocco and implications for spinosaur ecology. 3,77 Mb Recommended, given authors and source publication (Els**ier's editorial policies are strict and thorough, as such things go.) Note: co-coccurence of adult and juveniles. Enjoy, dinosaur lovers.
  19. Hi, just wanted to check if this fossil for sale is likely to be from a theropod. It is a ilium pelvic bone just under 20 inches in length. From what i can gather, theropod ilium's are wide and thin?. Thanks.
  20. Trilobite ID

    Dear TFF, This trilobite ( max. 36 mm) is probably from Erfoud area, Morocco. I believe it will be recognisedby our Trilobita experts. Thank you very much.
  21. Sorry this is my first time in Morocco and I’ve never fossil hunted abroad if possible could any1 tell me what the teeth are (apart from the mosasaur one) and if the 2nd photo is a fossil or not
  22. How should I prepare this piece

    How should I fix the broken tooth and stop the rock from crumbling also any help on identifying the fossils would be appreciated (apart from the mosasaur tooth
  23. Hello I am not sure whether the entirety of this fossil is real as it was brought in Morocco where a lot of fossils are fake and I noticed the gap between the crown and the root is filled with the same stuff around the fossil. I think the crown is real but maybe the matrix and root have just been added on? Thanks
  24. Please take a look at this post:
