    We are all cute and cuddly! It wasn't us. (probably not entirely, anyway) https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46306622
  5. I don't read a lot about hominid fossils but I try to keep up with general knowledge of recent finds and discussions. Sometimes, the various science magazines will publish a special issue on the subject and I try to pick up a copy. The September issue of Natural History is devoted to human origins with a few articles with even one on the ancient primates of the Paleocene and Eocene along with a reprinted column by the late Stephen J. Gould. I haven't read it yet but leafed through it (nice artwork and fossil photos in it). I had seen it that month at a local Barnes & Noble but the last copy was all bent-up like an accordion. I looked for it at another store but couldn't find it. I went back to pick up the beat-up one I had seen but it was gone. After hunting around the magazine website, I found that back issues were available so I mailed away for it ($7 including shipping). Ten days later, it arrived. In case anyone else is interested, here's the link to page with the back issue address - just scroll down to it: http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/contact.html

  7. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  8. Cretaceous crocodile; likely Dyrosaurus

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Unidentified Cretaceous crocodile species, suggested by multiple people, to appear to be a Dyrosaurus, came from the second phosphatic layer of a phosphate mine(what a shocker!)around the suburbs of Khouribga, Morocco. Original teeth, not replacements. Have gone through and cleaned up the base of some of the ones that had some sand around them.
  9. Basilosaurus molar still attached

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Basilosaurus isis molar(one side serrated, the other side smooth)still embedded in a small piece of jaw bone. sadly I don't have any information about the fossil other than it is B.isis, and was found in Egypt.
  10. Osteology of Ouranosaurus nigerensis

    This takes some time to download!!!!* 114 Mb,approximately Cite this as Bertozzo F, Dalla Vecchia FM, Fabbri M. (2017) The Venice specimen of Ouranosaurus nigeriensis (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) PeerJ 5:e3403https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.3403 As Taquet didn't formally describe the species, this is a significant advance in our knowledge of the species. Note: This can be called a monograph due to its length. Audience: all dinosaur lovers, but please note that this IS a "technical" paper. Pretty good depiction of pelvic parts and manus. Cladogram warning! EDIT: I don't know my exact connection speed, but don't be surprised if it takes a couple of minutes.
  11. Don't blame the internet for pareidolia; it is in your genes. A head shaped rock that had been transported many kilometers 2.5 million years ago was found in Africa found with human ancestor remains and tools. See this interesting article: https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/first-sculpture-makapansgat-pebble-1269056 I wonder how many pounds of meat this was traded for.
  12. Common ground, conflicting interests

    mighthavebeensaidbeforeandperhapsmoreleoquently,butthisisinFrench this being the article "Fossiles du Maroc : La relation incestueuse des scientifiques et des trafiquants" The author has fairly recently edited a many-paged volume(600+pages) on the fossil vertebrates of Morocco,which I believe might constitute a state-of-the-art book.I couldn't find a TOC online, but there's at least a chapter on placoderms by Rucklin/Clement(diacritics omitted) ->page ads fairly restrained<- related: morogeoconservaPlan cours André CHARRIERE.pdf the conclusion("a"conclusion?): "Bilan : patrimoine paléontologique d’intérêt mondial ; essentiel des grands bouleversements paléoenvironnementaux, paléoclimatiques et tectoniques mondiaux sont enregistrés dans le géopatrimoine marocain." freely paraphrased: Moroccan geoheritage sites contain a wealth of information on paleoclimate,tectonics,and paleoecology

  14. Pterosaur Tooth

    Hi all, This is my 2,5cm pterosaur tooth that I got for Christmas. I do not doubt that it is from a pterosaur, but I don’t know any information. The previous owner said it is from Africa. I really would like to know the specie,could anyone help me? Thanks for the help.Tell me if you need more pictures.
  15. Nice to see discoveries like this by dedicated avocational paleontologists! Who would think to look on the ceiling of caves for ancient footprints?

  17. a mystery from Morocco

    Hi all. My friend brought me a souvenir he found in Morocco. Based on the locality of the outcroup he gave me, it must be early Late Cretaceous. Since fauna of this time and place is well known to collectors, maybe someone could ID this/these obscure fossil/fossils I labeled A & B? It kinda reminds me Onchopristis.
  18. Spinosaur/Plesiosaur

    Hi everyone, I am new to the fossil forum. These were called Plesiosaurus (light), and Spinosaurus. I need help properly ID ing them. The Spinosaurus is not serrated, if I remember, found in Africa, also, what is the pink crystals and dark sand-like covering around the specimen? As for the Plesiosaurus, Phosphate Beds, Morocco ; upper Cretaceous..

  22. Dinosaurs teeth?

    Hi sorry I posted these photos all ready today. They are part of a collection I was given . I have posted the dinosaurs teeth again and on there own following the great advice of a member. I also found one of tooth that was hidden in the cotton wool packing and I think it the best of the bunch. That tooth is the first pic. The sizes are in centimetres.Thanks everyone on this forum, a great place of knowledge. Kind regards Bobby
  23. After this horrendous attempt at a triple pun,things can only deteriorate,right? The list of species in the tags i have kept to a bare bones minimum,for clarity's sake i MIGHT not have posted this,but it figures tooth rows. Shark cognoscendi prolly already have this one(and the others by Bass)I'm sure. SO,no need to post those others orrep38a.pdf
