  1. Dinosaur tooth

    Hello, I bought this small tooth for 65€. It is labeled as Deltadromeus agilis but since a skull is still unknown i doubt this. I still bought it cause it is well preserved and the serrated edges are beautiful. I would label it "abelisaurid spec. indet." Or maybe a juvenile carcharodontosaurid? I'm curios for opinions.
  2. Posible Deltadromeus huge tooth

    Hello! What do you think about this tooth? Posible Deltadromeus? Thank you so much! IMG_3885.mp4
  3. Deltadromeus tooth?

    I've been looking at this tooth which is labeled as Deltadromeus agilis from the Kem Kem Basin by the seller. I know labeling teeth as Deltadromeus is iffy due to the lack of skull material, so does anyone have an idea of a possible classification for it? I've tried looking at Troodon's Kem Kem theropod teeth guide but haven't managed to make an ID. Any help would be appreciated!
  4. dear fossil experts! as i wrote i need a little help with this tooth. i bought it today at a fossil trade show and the man who sold it, told me that it is a deltadromeus tooth from kem kem. so, i'm a dinosaurfan since ever, i'm reading a lot of books and startet to collect a few cheaper teeth like from spinosaurus or mosasaurus (which i bought at the natural history museum) but i'm really no expert on the fossils from morocco (or on any other i think). but i know that there is no known deltadromeus skull. so what kind of tooth is it? is more likely a carcharodontosaurus tooth? or is it "just" a big tooth from a species we don't know yet? I bought it because from my point of view it is in a good condition and (hopefully) not restored (but as i said, i'm really no expert on these things). what do you think about it? is it a tooth of good quality or was it a bad deal? (if so, i'll try to make it better next time) Thanks in advance to all who are answering my questions :-)
  5. Dear fossils experts, I would like to buy a new dinosaur tooth from the Kem Kem beds; I already read (more or less 10 times!) this thread - - but I'm a bit confused and I would really appreciate your opinion about those teeth sold as "Raptor Deltadromeus agilis". Comparing the images in the @Troodon post, to me those teeth are more likely of a Dromaeosaurid or Abelisaurid indet. What do you think? Thank you for your time and have a nice day!
  6. Possible raptor tooth?

    Please help me identify this tooth. I am fairly new to fossil collecting. Like many I've had my brachiopods and thumb print size trilobites for years, but nothing as cool as an actual fossilized tooth. Hence why I must admit right up front I was recently duped by the whole Deltadromeus label when purchasing something new for my collection. I'm a classroom teacher and I was in the midst of an intense unit on dinosaurs and fossils and I was eager to find some hands on examples to bring to my students. I jumped on an auction site and for a few tens I purchased this tooth. I wasn't motivated by the fact that it was a Deltadromeus tooth, but simply an actual fossilized tooth....something really different from anything I already owned. Fast forward a couple of weeks when I decide to look online for more "Deltadromeus" teeth and find a link to this forum - and a wealth of information explaining to me in very clear language why it is impossible for me to definitively claim this tooth as Deltadromeus! (A huge thank you by the way!) Trouble is, now I'm not sure how to descibe this item when presenting to students and/or friends and neighbors. I'm excited enough to be holding a fosslized dinosaur tooth. (OK, after saying that I'm holding my breath that it really is a dinosaur tooth after my recent stegosauria dissappointment!) While it would be great to give it a specific name so I could open a book and say "It's from that dinosaur" - it's far more important for me to be accurate, no matter how "general" that accuracy may be. That being said, what would be an appropriate way to identify this tooth? Is it correct for me to call it a Theropod tooth? Would it be correct to take it one step further and call it a raptor tooth or is theropod already going too far down the list of scientific classification? Due to the serrations does that indicate a carnivore tooth or is that simply an assumption? The last photo is kind of dark but it does show serrations on both sides. I am grateful for any and all assistance.
  7. Deltadromeus Agilis tooth?

    Hi all, New here and to the fossil collecting world--- since I was little I always loved dinosaurs and traces of the past and this is probably some of the farthest back we can reach... so, finally now looking to start up a collection with a good first dinosaur tooth. Not going to spend T-Rex money or anything like that at first so my range would be for a more common type of tooth but still in nice collectable condition. Been looking at several types... like Charcharodontosaurus, Allosaurus, possibly any of the so-called "raptor" types and this is one I've come up with that appears to be a good example of the latter; The description goes: "Pristine example of the rare giant raptor tooth,This tooth is pristine,beautiful enamel,serrated and complete with no repair or restoration.Tooth measures 45 mm Mid-Cretaceous Albian Age Kem-Kem Basin, South of Taouz , K’Sar es Souk Province , Morocco" To my newbie eyes it appears to be in nice condition and possibly also quite large for this species (?)... what do you think? Does the species label ring true and would this be a good starter? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Andreas
  8. Deltadromeus vertebra

  9. I just got this strange tooth that's almost 3.5" long that I assumed it came from a Cacharodontosaurus. But upon closer inspection when I got it the shape of the tooth doesn't look flattened nor blade-like but seem to be very bulky unlike typical Carch teeth I have seen. So I was wondering if this is a special positional tooth that doesn't fit the standard shape of normal Carch tooth? It's also slightly bent and twisted as well, not sure if that's natural or some form of pathology. The previous owner thought it's a Deltadromeus tooth but that doesn't seem likely since Deltadromeus teeth (or those theropod teeth attributed as) shouldn't be this big, but I could be wrong. What's are you guys opinions on this?
  10. Deltadromeus Tooth? Unknown Dinosaur Tooth

    I got infomation the seller called the tooth unidentify dinosaur tooth maybe its a deltadromeus ? its from Morocco and its a one inch could it be raptor tooth or deltadromeus tooth or some other dinosaur tooth ?
  11. Delta, Dromie and Carch are some of the most commonly offered by dealers and collected by many enthusiasts, but I am surprised to find that little has been written about how do you really distinguish these three teeth from one another, especially when they are in small size - in this case I am refering to 1" and below size where the 3 of them look very similar to the untrained eyes. This is especially even more complicated when it comes to Deltadromeus agillis tooth which from what I gathered, shouldn't really technically be accepted to really exist, and should be ideally labeled loosely as Moroccan theropod, yet they are very common in the collectors market, but when asking how can you really tell if they are not Moroccan dromaeosaur tooth or simply a young Carcharodontosaurus tooth, nobody seem to be able to conclusively tell. The reason I am creating this post asking this question is because I just acquired a couple of new small Moroccan teeth that although have been labeled as Deltadromeus, but I can't be certain if they are really Dromaeosaur or young Carch teeth: Specimen A: Specimen B: Any theropod experts here could give insight into how to identify and differentiate these troublesome teeth would be appreciated and I think many new collectors and enthusiasts of Moroccan dinosauria would find such insights and knowledge very useful. Thx.

  13. I have been seeing Delta teeth floating around the net lately and was wondering how you teeth experts can tell the difference or unique features that separate one from another since most of them to my eyes, they look almost the same. With Delta teeth of size smaller than 1.5" I can kinda see it tend to be flat and blade-like like Dromaeosaur's teeth and you probably may be more likely to get them confused with Raptor's teeth more so than Carch teeth which from my observation, the smaller teeth seem to look bulkier and a little stout in shape. However when it comes to Delta teeth of 2" and bigger I see very little difference from a Carch tooth of similar size so how do you tell the difference? And correct me if I am wrong, but it seems like a Delta teeth of 2" and above seem to be a rarity from my experience but in reality are Delta teeth more costly than a Carch tooth of comparable size and quality? Since it seems to be a rarer specimen I would assume the answer should be yes, but I can't be sure.
