  1. Abelisaur teeth

    I was looking at different teeth for sale, and came upon 6 teeth listed as abelisaur teeth from the Kem Kem area of Morocco. I know that it’s hard to Id the teeth from this area, and I’m not looking for an exact id. I was wondering if any of the teeth looked like typical abelisaur teeth, or if some are likely something else. I noticed that 4 of them looked pretty similar, and the other group of 2 looked different from the 4, but similar to each other.
  2. Hi all, I'm interested in finally purchasing some (theropod) dinosaur teeth for my collection. I'm just not sure where to start. I've been eyeing up some reasonably-priced stuff from a website. The material comes from the Kem-Kem beds in Morocco. Of course, I understand that going into the realm of dinosaur teeth (especially those from the Kem-Kem beds) and expecting any sort of accurate I.D. would be a poor idea. However, I'd at least like to know if they're even theropod teeth before I drop money on them. (Again, they are very reasonably priced.) There are a couple of items I'm considering: Labeled as "Abelisaur teeth" Labeled as "Carcharodontosaurus teeth" I can post more pics; the seller has a few for each. On one hand, the "carcharodontosaurus" stuff is better documented in the region which is always nice. However the "abelisaur" items are kind of in better shape. I guess my main questions are: Are they actually "dinosaurian" ? (I would be happy just being able to call them "theropod indet." but of course if the given labels are accurate that would be nice.) Would they be bad purchases? What would you purchase, if anything? I apologize in advance for my ignorance and I hope to learn something.
  3. Abelisaurid foot claw?

    Hi, Wanted to ask whether the morphology of this claw matches well with an Abelisaur claw, it is 1.5 inches long, and from the Kem Kem. I know it isn't Spinosaurid and the shape seems to suggest either Abelisaurid or Carcharodontosaurid, but i can't be certain. Thanks.
  4. A Dynamite Dino Donation

    A few months ago we purchased a T-Rex tooth from TFF member @Troodon and he also gave us a super nice Nano tooth. I never got his permission to mention that sale or the gift so I get that anonymous. That is our only T-Rex material and it was also the first fossil donation to our program from a Fossil Forum member. Those teeth really helped us get started becasue it allowed us to use our small budget to fill in other parts of the dinosaur program around having T-Rex stuff. We owe him a huge thank you for that and I wanted to share this on the forum. Well we now have another gigantic THANK YOU to give Frank. I arrived home from work yesterday to find a package from him and it was beautiful dinosaur fossils and some additional non dinosaur Hell Creek material. There were some fantastic fossils in that box and he helped us really strengthen not only the Hell Creek part of dino program but also our African dinosaur section as well. I say this in most of our posts now because it is true. We could not do what we are doing without the support of The Fossil Forum and the members here. @Troodon shares his knowledge and his identification skills with everybody here and that has been invaluable to me. Our dinosaur program is heavily influenced by the knowledge I have gotten from him and bolstered by his generous donations. Thank you Troodon and all of TFF members who donate fossils, share the knowledge and offer encouragement. We really could not do this without you The box o' dinos..... Thescelosaurus fossils (toe bone, vert, two teeth), a beautiful Ceratopsian tooth from HC, an Edmontosaurus tendon, some awesome HC croc teeth, an R.isosceles tooth, a really nice Spino tooth, an abelisaurid tooth,a beautiful Titanosaur indet tooth, and a Ornithomimid toe bone (possibly a juvie Struthiomimus).

  6. Abelisaurid Premax Tooth

  7. African Abelisaur Teeth; Rugops Only???

    I have just added 3 Abelisaur teeth to my collection, all from the same area, Ifezouane Formation Red Sandstone Beds, KemKem, Ouzina.... So not Phosphates, therefore.... As I'm aware, the only Abelisaur found in this area was Rugops, but is there a possibility of it being another of the Abelisauridae Family?? Thanks for any help guys!
  8. Possible raptor tooth?

    So.......I've recently gotten into fossil collecting. It's very addicting, I'll admit. Anyway, I recently bought a neat little Kem Kem tooth that was supposedly listed as a "dromaeosaur" or "raptor" tooth. It wasn't too expensive, and of a decent size and quality, so if by chance it wasn't some sort of raptor tooth, I wasn't going to cry about wasting money. I have no idea why, since ignorance is bliss, but I had a sudden urge to look up identifying raptor teeth and stumbled across this impressive site (thank you for existing!!!!). I am now quite certain that my Kem Kem "dromaeosaur" tooth is most likely from some abelisaurid species, which I'm totally fine with since I was planning on buying one anyway. I'll post pictures of it later, since I already own it and can (hopefully) have it identified to the most likely species at my leisure. However, I stumbled across this tooth on my search for elusive raptor teeth. The seller has surprisingly (and respectably) titled it as an unclassified tooth from the Kem Kem area. To my amateur eyes, it looks like it might possibly belong to a raptor? It is supposedly 0.6 inch long. These are the only pictures the seller has provided so far, hopefully they will work. It looks like the mesial serrations (hopefully I'm using that right! New words, yay!) look like they curve slightly to the lingual surface at the base, at least to me.... I roughly sized up a picture of a ruler with millimeters to the pictures of the tooth. There are roughly 4 serrations per millimeter on the mesial side, and 3 per millimeter on the distal. What do you think? Lingual surface is the first picture, labial is the second.
  9. LAST AFRICAN DINOSAUR

    A bit of an old one, but from a local perspective: https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2017/05/218258/last-african-dinosaur-discovered-in-morocco-oulad-abdoun-basin/
  10. Kem Kem Abelisaurid Ulna?

    I found this rather interesting piece on our favourite auction site. It's being sold as a croc vertebra. But it looks a lot like the ulna of an Abelisaurid from the Kem Kem beds. The resemblance with the ulna of Majungasaurus is pretty close. It's a little shorter, but the single bump on the one side seems to fit. While if it was a vertebra, it seems to lack a neural canal. Majungasaurus left ulna
  11. Recent, I came across several teeth from Kem Kem which intrigued me. At first thought, they reminded me of Troodon teeth, though their serrations were nowhere as big. One seller labelled it as theropoda indet. Another called it Masiakasaurus. I thought they might even be Abelisaurid teeth. What are your thoughts on these?
  12. Abelisaur Tooth

    Tooth of an undescribed Abelisaurid. From either fezouane or Aoufous Formation.
  13. Does anyone know anything about Abelisaurs? Where did they live? Are unidentified Moroccan theropod teeth likely to be Abelisaur related?
  14. Abelisaurid Tooth

    From the album Reptile Fossils

    Tooth of an Abelisaurid. Location: Kem Kem Beds, Morocco Age: Cenomanian, Late Cretaceous
