  1. Hey everyone. i’m currently looking to buy some nice specimins that will be put on display. I know very little about triobites, other than that they look really good. I’m looking for a nice affordable specimin that will display nice. So if you have any other suggestions i’ll be happy to hear them! i found this online, and it states that it has had some repair work being hairline crack repair in the matrix, which i know is very common and i’m perfectly fine with it, but has the repairs been over done? It’s a Paralejuras trilobite, thanks!
  2. Dinosaur claws from Kem Kem

    Hola amigos, estoy interesado en comprar algunas garras de dinosaurios de Kem kem. Te muestro las garras que me han ofrecido para que me digas a qué especies pertenecen y si las ves muy restauradas. Thank you so much. Translation Hello friends, I'm interested in buying some dinosaur claws from Kem kem. I show you the claws they have offered me to tell me what species they belong to and if you see them very restored. Thank you so much.
  3. What are These Bones?

    So a while back I was given these fossils along with a Spinosaurus tooth. He said that they were all from the same area and that they were both vertebrae. I can see the touch up on the larger one obviously but it still seems real because of the spongy meterial from the one view. I was just wondering if you could ID these for me I’m pretty new to the fossil scene. Thanks.
  4. Seller claims to have secured this in an estate sale. It’s on the pricey side. For me, it’s difficult to see any difference between this and an average spinosaurus tooth. The fossil is from moroccan sahara, says there is civil war in the tenere desert, and therefore collecting there is illegal due to current regulations. Thoughts?
  5. My dinosaur fossils

    Hello friends. I am new to this forum and I would like to show you my teeth and dinosaur claw so you can help me identify them, tell me if they are repaired and tell me what their value is. I hope you like them.
  6. This is a Plesiosaur paddle right?

    Hi, Saw this for sale, was thinking of purchasing it, but wanted to confirm if this is indeed Plesiosaur. it is quite large for a partial paddle at 14 inches in length and from the Goulmima region in Morocco. Thanks.
  7. I've been looking at this 9 cm tooth at an online shop, but it's identified as Suchomimus tenerensis from Hamada gu Guir, Kem Kem, Morocco, and as far as I can gather, Suchomimus has only been found in Niger. I'm very much an amateur but I haven't seen striations on any Spinosaurus teeth I've come across. Any ideas?
  8. Kem Kem IDs

    I recently acquired two bits of bone which I would appreciate any thoughts on. Before I go further, my guesses are crocodile and fish. So, here's the first one, a piece of jaw with the remains of two visible sockets and a piece of tooth still within the jaw. The two dark areas at the top are the sockets. Got to be crocodile, I assume? I don't think I've seen one with such a broad, flat area surrounding the teeth though. Here's the side view, showing the sloping sockets and the broken tooth. The bottom This side appears to have been attached to something. As you look at this picture, the teeth would have emerged from the top, along the other side. This item is more puzzling. I think I may have seen something like it before. It has the look of something fishy to me. The underside. As always, any thoughts would be appreciated.
  9. Is this carch, dinosaur for that matter, or something else?
  10. Some very large +5" Rooted Mosasaur teeth and Jaws are being offered for sale. The crowns appear to have been reattached and may be a composite. This is not your typical white fill that you normally see from Morocco but a darker blend to be more natural and not stand out. Typical of the type of work that you now see coming from Spain. Unfortunately there is no mention of any repair done to these items. More reason to me even more attentive with any Moroccan material. Use caution if interested and post your desires here before you purchase A sampling of the teeth being offered..... Tooth 2 Tooth 3
  11. Vertebrea from the kemkem formation

    A unidentified vertebrea from the kemkem formation in morocco, the vertebrea is about 2,8cm (1,1 inch) in lenght. I hope someone can tell me more about the vertebrea!! thanks already!!!
  12. So you see from Morocco (Ouled Abdoun, late paleocene- early Eocene?) These funky looking Cow sharks called Weltonia ancistrodon. Though I don’t own one, I still have questions about it. The questions I have are the following: 1) There are always lowers. Never, not once, have I seen for sale an upper. Where are they? What do they look like? What about Symphyseals? 2) Have they ever been found anywhere else? I find it hard to believe they only come from the one site. 3) what is the purpose of the weird blade? Any papers on this?
  13. Hello, calling to all experts on Moroccan fossils - are these fossils real? Kasia
  14. This is a continuation of the previous threads about the Plesiosaur jaw (Found near Goulmima, Morocco) that was for sale.... So i was thinking about the teeth that came with the jaw i bought, i asked a plesiosaur expert and he believes that the teeth look like they are from a Pliosaur as they don't seem to match Zarafasaura or Thililua. The teeth however, are quite slender (the bigger one is 1.5 inches and the smaller is around 1 inch), so i wanted to ask about any diagnostic features on either of the teeth that can help describe it to family level - especially since the teeth were associated with the jaw and if i can narrow down the teeth, then the jaw can be narrowed down too. Any ideas?
  15. Small spino tooth? Or croc?

    Hey. @JohnBrewer kindly gave me this little tooth as a bonus to go with my Tyrannosaurid indet tooth (I will soon be posting it on my latest mailbox score thread ) I was wondering if it was a Spino or a Croc tooth. They look quite similar. To me it looks like a juvenile spino but I could be wrong. Really don’t know. It is 1,5cm. Here are some pictures. What do you think? Regards.
  16. Unknown Kem Kem Beds, Teeth

    I have a few teeth here that i could you some help identifying! I'm thinking between a Crocodile or Raptor for the first tooth posted (includes photo of each side). The second photo contains multiple teeth that look to be from the same organism, however i have no clue as to what it could be. All of these teeth are from the Kem Kem Beds of Taouz, Morocco. The single (Crocodile/Raptor?) tooth is .53" (14 mm) long by .31" (8 mm) wide by .2" (5 mm) thick.
  17. Hi, So i have another question. Just saw this on our favourite auction website (no surprise there), listed as a Carcharodontosaurus dorsal. It is 9.25 inches long and not sure exactly what diagnostic features to look out for. Can anyone help narrow down what it could be. Also is there any red flags to watch out for - the seller says there are some glued and filled fractures but wondering if anything has been fabricated (looks almost too nice). Thanks.
  18. Hi, Saw this hand claw for sale and wanted to know if it is real. I am a bit suspicious because the tip has a different texture to the back half of the claw. Not sure if there is any repair/restoration but wanted to check to make sure that it isn't a composite. The claw is 4.8cm long and from the Kem Kem (this is the only information the seller has listed). Thanks.
  19. These bones from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco are being offered for sale as Spinosaurus Phalanx Toe Bones. They appear to be carpals, hand bones, and most likely from one of the Spinosaurid's in that fauna. Please note that I've yet to find any technical paper that describes any Spinosaurid hand bones The seller indicates only some glued and fill fractures however the excessive matrix on both these carpals might indicate otherwise. The distal end of the carpal on the right appears to have lots of "fill"
  20. This “fossil” is already in my collection, but I just wanted to confirm that it was inauthentic.
  21. Circular depressions in Kem Kem bone

    I recently obtained some large, but pretty ugly chunks of bone from the Kem Kem formation. Given that they seem to have no identifiable features, I don't imagine they could be easily identified. However, one has these depressions visible on it, and I wondered whether anyone might know what they are? Close up of the depressions. This is the other side of the bone. They don't look like teeth marks to by uneducated eyes, nor the borings that you typically see on marine rocks (which these aren't, of course). I'm also not convinced they can be the series of depressions that you sometimes see on crocodile bone, although I'm quite willing to be told I'm wrong. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be interested to hear them.
  22. A few Moroccan acquisitions

    Just a few bits that I received yesterday, some of which may be of interest to fans of Moroccan fossils. Firstly, a box full of the ubiquitous hybodontid shark fin spines (or 'spin fines', as I often call them during my less lucid moments). Common Kem Kem finds, but I do like them. The coin for scale in the middle is a shiny British fivepence, which is 18mm across, or 0.72/inch. Most of them need some prep, especially this beast, which may test my prep abilities, given how encrusted it is and how delicate these are. Secondly though, are these Crinoid float bulbs. I've never knowingly seen these before. Apparently, according to dealers online, they are from the Erfoud region. I can't find a great deal of information about how they actually functioned, but I'll have a little search of the scientific literature when I get the chance. The idea seems to be that they either floated on the top of the sea, allowing the crinoid to travel great distances, or they were temporarily anchored to the sea floor. Either way, they are magnificent things. Surface texture of the above specimen. Specimen #2 Specimen #3. As they are hollow, they have beautiful crystal growths on the inside, which can be seen when they break.
  23. Unidentified Kem Kem thing

    Can anyone please assist with an ID on this? It's a large, flat-ish thing, broken into a number of chunks. Two of the bits go together, but the rest doesn't seem to, though I strongly suspect that they were found together (they were sent to me together in a box with a load of random bone fragments). It's large, and very crumbly. It's about ready to fall to bits, so I plan on stabilising it as soon as possible. The inner texture is very distinctive. I've been trying to think of things it could be. I have very similar chunks around here somewhere, but nothing this big. Sorry the pictures are so poor, but it's not very detailed to begin with.
  24. Harpoceras falcifer Ammonite 1.JPG

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Harpoceras falcifer Ammonite Morocco Jurassic Period (201.3-145 million years ago) Harpoceras is an extinct genus of cephalopod belonging to the family Hildoceratidae. These cephalopods existed in the Jurassic period, during Toarcian age from Falciferum zone to Commune subzone of Bifrons zone. They were fast-moving nektonic carnivores. Shells of Harpoceras species show strong dimorphism in their size. While microconchs reach 24–51 mm in diameter, macroconchs shells width is 115–430 mm. They are moderately evolute to involute and compressed. Whorl sides are flat and there is strong keel. Ribs are falcoid or falcate and thus biconcave, strong and projected. Sometimes, ribs can be broad and flat topped on outer part of whorl and in some species they can be striate on inner part of whorl. Some species have midlateral groove, or series of undulating depressions on inner half of whorl. Fossils of species within this genus have been found in the Early Jurassic rocks of Europe, Northern Africa, Russia, Japan, Borneo, New Zealand, Indonesia, North and South America.
