  1. Ceratarges sp. nov.

    From the album Trilobites

  2. I picked up a few pieces one for prep practice and the second because I like it and have never seen it before. The prep is a Devonian trilobite I think drotops but posting here as there are some real experts on these bugs. The second I am most excited about is a plaqaderm from a boney fish again Devonian period I could only think of dunkleostosus but am sure there are more species than this. Creating a new topic as per troodons advice, hope this is ok.

  9. Marrakech Fossil Shops

    Mrs. HamptonsDoc and I are are heading to Marrakech in a few days for some R&R and to escape this cold weather that just won't leave New York. Can anyone recommend any good fossil shops in or around the town? We're going to spend a day in both Casablanca and Essaouira too, and an excursion into the Atlas Mountains. I wanted to take a trip to Kem-Kem but the Mrs. has a different idea of vacation than I do! @Tidgy's Dad
  10. Hello everyone from my favorite forum! Please, I am in doubt if this bone is really real and what it could be. It was discovered at Kem Kem in Morocco. If it really is real (and I think it is), I am in doubt between fragmented rib or skull fragment. I am very grateful and all help is welcome! @Troodon
  11. Kem Kem bones

    I've obtained another little lot of miscellaneous bones. To my surprise, many of the partial bones in the lot were perfect matches, so I was able to stick them back together. But these isolated bones can be a bit puzzling, so I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what they may be! I've numbered the images to make it a bit easier. Firstly, the verts. I can normally differentiate between croc and dinosaur with the larger verts, but I'm not so good when it comes to the smaller ones. Then the misc bones. 7: Piece of fish skull, I assume. 13: This is a concave shape (the centre as you see it in the picture is raised). 15: This looks a bit like a furcula, but I guess it's probably not. I know what these next bits are, but I'm just showing off now A big chunk of unprepared crocodile scute, an unprepared Onchopristis rostrum, and two big hybodont fin spines.
  12. If you aren’t used to seeing marine coprolites, it is very easy to miss them as you search marine matrix. That is one of the reasons for this post. Also I posted these for @GeschWhat. Sometimes it can be very difficult to distinguish coprolites from small concretions or other geologic specimens. If in doubt pull them out and let a coprolite researcher make the determination. The below coprolites came from matrix (about 1 gallon) from the Egem Quarry in Belgium: The matrix contained a large number of shark and ray teeth. Sharks and rays produce spiral and scroll coprolites. I didn’t find any scroll coprolites. However, scroll coprolites tend to be fairly large and may be in the fauna but were too large for the matrix size that I was searching. I did find a few spiral coprolites. See the below 15 mm specimen: However the vast majority of coprolites looked to be from bony fish, with no evidence of spiraling and lots of fish bone inclusions. See the two pieces (15 mm and 5 mm) of coprolites below with very visible inclusions: Other examples (9 mm, 9 mm, and 15 mm) of bony fish coprolites (note the middle coprolite may have worn spiraling but I can't tell for sure) : Finding mostly bony fish coprolites was not surprising considering the number of bony fish teeth, jaws, vertebrae and especially otoliths also contained in the matrix. The below picture shows only the nicest otoliths (in total I found at least 3 times this number) from the matrix: Continued in the next reply Marco Sr.
  13. Greetings, I recently bought an Heteromorph Ammonite fossil from Morocco (my first moroccan ammonite) and I decided to clean it with a little bit of water the same way I did with previous fossils. Big mistake... since I was shocked to see how the red ammonite turned brown and some parts disappeared (those put together with some sort of brown putty) when I put the ammonite under the water... After speaking with some fossil collectors I found out that many Heteromorph Ammonites from Morocco are indeed broken and put together, and they are sometimes "created" using the parts of different ammonites... You can see the ammonite before (the red one) and after (the brown one) and what I would like to know now is how to restore it please. What is the brown putty they used to put all the pieces together and how do they obtain that red colour? Is it totally necessary to use the same procedure? I've been creating and painting clay sculptures for years and I wonder now if using some clay and acrylic paintings would work... Thank you very much.
  14. Hi, I found this trilobites online and decided to attach a few photos here to show examples of trilobites anyone should avoid buying - unless priced really cheap, I wouldn't pay 10$ for any of these.. This is a mix of fakes and real trilobites - very quick prepared probably 20 years ago - quality to AVOID AT ALL COSTS to avoid buying fakes! Loss of some details in the process of preparation is understandable, but when prepared too quick like this it's just a rock and not worth 500$! If only people buying moroccan trilobites did some research (all it takes is to copy paste the name of the species into google and browse through some photos to see more detailed prepared examples)... Some of you bidding on this? Someone just won this 4.7" butchered Psychopyge for 518$ from a seller in Wisconsin in USA! So much for honest USA sellers.
  15. In this small lot, the seller is selling several Morocco Mosasaur teeth. Please, then I have two questions: 01 - Are all these teeth real? 02 - Is there any way to distinguish which one is Prognathodon, Halisaurus and etc? Thanks for all the comments! Teeth 01 Teeth 02 Teeth 03 Teeth 04
  16. Walliserops trifurcatus

    Purchased from @RJB in auction to benefit TFF.
  17. Vertebra from Morocco

    Hello everyone. Saw this vertebra from Morocco and I was wondering what it could belong to. It is approx. 100$. The seller claims it’s Carcharodontosaurus. Could it be Spinosaurus? It is quite big, 13.5 cm. These are all the images I have. Thanks so much for all your help Kind Regards.
  18. Hi all I came across this Hollardops mesocristata and was wondering if it is real? It has a crack running through the right side of the cephalon (surrounded in red in one of the photos) and also has excellent eye detail leading me to suggest it is real. It also has very well detailed pustules on its surface. What do you guys think?
  19. Sorry for so many postings in one day! It's shopping day! According to information from the seller, this Ophiuroid was discovered in Ktaoua Formation, Idem Ouachene, Istlhou - Morocco. 01 - What is your opinion? This Ophiuroid is real? No red flags here? 02 - This is what period? Ordovician? How many millions of years? 03 - Has this species already been described? If yes, please, what is the scientific name? I appreciate all the comments!
  20. What fossils are these?

    I recently purchased a pile of Moroccon fossils. But I can't recognize some of them, so it would be great if you guys could help me with the ID. This first one is a sphere shaped object that I can't recognize at all.
  21. Pterosaur tooth

    Hello everyone. Hope you are having great sunny day like I am. I saw this tooth online for less than 10$. I was wondering if it was a Pterosaur tooth,because I know they resemble fish teeth quite a lot. It is 3,5 cm long and Is from the Kem Kem beds. I know it is very hard,judging by the information and the pictures; Do you know (if it’s a pterosaur tooth) what pterosaur it could be (Siroccopterix?) Thank you so much for your help. Kind regards. ps: is it partially rooted??? Can’t really tell what the lighter bit of the tooth is.

  24. Plesiosaur from Morocco

    A revisit to a poorly understood Plesiosaur, Thililua longicollis from the Lower Turonian of Goulmima morocco. No mention of formation but have to believe its the Akrabou Formation of the Kem Kem beds http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/5/3/172177 @-Andy- @LordTrilobite @Seguidora-de-Isis
  25. Raptor claw???

    Hey all. I saw this tooth online laballed as raptor claw. What so you think? Dromeosaurid? Here is the photo:
