  1. Now I have seen many people state their fossils are from the kem kem beds and this normally follows taouz or begga ..but what exactly is this magically formation that gives us so many fossils? Well to start with the kem kem beds are composed in my opinion of two formation the earliest being the Aoufous and the earlier being the Ifezouane, and thats great but what are there how can I tell if my fossil dinosaur tooth comes from either one of these formations? That's a good question and while the Ifezouane formation to me remains a much of a mystery as I have only ever dug in this area twice here is a general description the fossils are usually lighter in color can range anything from light sand to heavy conglomerate depending on where you dig, the fossils from this formation are normally more water worn and the layer that produces the greatest abundance are usually fast moving river deposits. Now onto the formation I know too well at this point and how do I know it so well? that's a good question the area I dig is only comprised of the aoufous formation. How do I know this well you can keep digging downwards but you get nothing this area missed out on the earlier formation and for this reason I keep it a knowledgeable secret not for stop people from having fun but this area only the father and son mine (and they claim the land is theirs ...i'm not going to get into politics in this topic) but now comes a further question well there is just the aoufous you are digging in yeah? ....well nope there are four layers to this formation mostly comprised of clay and sand but always a mix of two these photographs might help show this the bottom aka the floor is a layer and the roof is also a layer.

  3. Drepanosaurus claw?

    Wondering if this could be a claw from a Drepanosaurus. What do you guys think?
  4. Dinosaur bone? Allosaurus?

    This one I'm actually really worried about, cause I wasn't aware of trying to get something ID'd on here, and so took the seller at their word and bought it. It seemed a little weird, but Ive seen plenty of fossilized bones look weird and "off", so it didn't REALLY strike me as a red flag. after I got it though, the striped coloring looked even weirder in person, and the gravelly matrix on the bottom made it seem much thinner and more off. There was never any claim as to what bone it was, but it's supposed to be from an allosaurus from the Morrison formation. I couldn't fit all the pics in one post, so the rest are following.
  5. Is this real (Keichousaurus hui) and if real what should be a correct value for it? So it is a juvenile Keichousaurus hui? I have less knowledge and looking to buy my first fossils, if someone can help with a good list of shops with a good name (pls PM me), that would help a lot! Thanks in advance for all the help!
  6. 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.
  7. Madagascan coprolite. Actually dinosaur?

    This is a small coprolite specimen from Madagascar. Just two questions: 1. Is this actually from a dinosaur or is coprolite just sold as "dinosaur" dung but in reality from any animal? 2. Due to its size surely its from a relatively small species or an infant larger species. Rahonavis too far fetched?
  8. Organizing Collection/ ID Help

    Organizing my collection has been the tedious, but also a really fun process. I’ll probably continually posting here for assistance. When I’m feeling a little more confident about my ID’s, I’ll post it in the members collection section to share. I still have some fossils to prep, piece together, display, label, etc. and really fortunate that I have all of you helping constantly; it really speeds up the process. In another year’s time, I’ll be much more educated/ well rounded Some of my fossils are rookie purchases, so I’m just trying to make the best of it. The issue is , I think they’re pretty cool, but not sure if they are worth displaying given that they are bone fragments. I was thinking maybe in a riker...also the issue of labeling...Below are three separate purchases. Group 1: The seller sold these in fragments. Several of these pieces I glued back together neatly with Paleo bond. The seller must’ve used some kind of thick glue originally because there are some marks, but it’s no big deal... anyway these were advertised as Albertosaurus bones... when I asked the seller why he labeled it as such, he said because it’s very probable? I asked him for a coa, and when I received it, it only said Tyannosaur bones... so I’m going to leave it at that...because it’s indeterminable. Even back then I knew Coa’s were pointless, but I always like asking for one, because I feel like it could possibly put a little pressure on the seller to be a somewhat more honest like it did in this case...however in most cases sellers don’t care: Tyrannosaur bone fragments: Judith River Formation, Northern Montana The other small miscellaneous pieces I don’t think can be glued back...no fit or match, just associated bones...What would you label the fossil as, and are they worth displaying?
  9. Theropod Teeth and Claw Segment

    Forgive me, for I am new here. So I purchased these two teeth and a (ID’d as) crocodile claw segment at my local gem and mineral show for $10 each. These were identified by the director of my local geology museum as potentially being from the Lance Creek formation in Wyoming, but he said that I may need to wait for another paleontologist who works at Hell Creek to come back and take a closer look at the serrations. The second tooth, however, has the color for a Kem Kem specimen due to its reddish-brown color. The director was nice enough to take photos of them. I have more pictures of the teeth and claw segment that I’ll be uploading in the comments.
  10. Must be a full moon out there Seller is offering this pterosaur skull and claw without any additional information other than saying it had no teeth . Tired emailing him no response as of yet. Looks like 3 wing bones of a Pterosaur from the Kansas chalk. Very nice Edit: seller responded saying it's from Texas and assures me there is an intact skull? A 2" Daspletosaurus offered without any locality. Impossible to distinguish between different tyrannosaurids and without locality who knows what it is. Triceratops vertebra from the Hell Creek being offered. Its not ceratopsian but from an Edmontosaurus which are caudals more rectangular, box shaped. Ceratopsian are oval. A rare Pachycephalosaurus claw being offered. Wow thought yesterday's Tyranno tooth was an awful resto job only to be surpassed by this one. Looks like most of the claw has been restored to something not Pachy. Avoid.... A Giganotosaurus tooth from Argentina is being offered for sale, wow. I know a lot of collectors will want to jump on to this tooth. Caution for a number of reasons. First it was illegal exported, collected in 2014. Second if you need one is that the seller has no locality information and because of that its difficult to determine what Dinosaur its from. Multiple Carcharodontosaurids are present in Argentina. Although the tooth has some appearance of a Carch without additional photos hard to conclusively say its one.
  11. 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?
  12. Hello I know this is dinosaur bone and I have a thought that it is a vertebrae fragment but wondering if anyone can help me identify it better. Thank you.

  14. 2017 Wyoming Microsite Finds

    Last summer on my trip out west, I found these teeth at a Lance Formation microsite in Wyoming. Many of the fossils were found through splitting a yellowish-orange concretion filled matrix, while others were free from it. This site was on the same ranch where I found my theropod hand claw but in separate locality. It's rather late (EST) at the time I'm posting this but wanted to show some of the teeth I found and was hoping I could get some help identifying them. 1. Pectinodon bakkeri 2. Richardoestesia sp. (?) 3. Lizard/ Worn Herbivorous Dinosaur Tooth (?)
  15. 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.
  16. Nice, cool big bone for sale from Hell Creek Formation Montana listed as rex, is it?
  17. Is this carch, dinosaur for that matter, or something else?
  18. A while back, I received a package from our good friend Adam, better known as @Tidgy's Dad. In said package was a small plastic dinosaur that had apparently been gifted to him by none other than @JohnBrewer. This means that this little fella had started his journey in England, made his way to Morocco, and had since travelled to the United States. It was decided after careful consideration that his name was to be Gorgeous George the Globetrotting Gorgosaurus. Now he is traveling the globe spreading joy and cheer to members of TFF! If you are fortunate enough to play host to Gorgeous George, here are the rules: 1. George must be photographed in his host's collection. 2. He must then be sent to an unsuspecting TFF-er along with any trade. (You can't notify the recipient that they are getting him, he must be an unannounced visitor!) 3. He should be accompanied by a note in case the recipient is not familiar with proper Globetrotting Gorgosaurus procedure. 4. In order to increase the odds of surprising his new host, his visit photo should be uploaded only AFTER he has been received at his new temporary home. *NOTE: The hope is that in addition to having fun, this will also give members the chance to share their collections and have their prizes be seen. That being said, he must be photographed with his host collection. This does not mean that he cannot also take field trips to collecting sites and other landmarks and be photographed there as well! (Thank you to @DPS Ammonite for the suggestions!) Let's see how many miles we can put on this little plastic dino! Don't forget to have fun!
  19. Mammal or Avian fossil?

    Hello, I was out near central alberta the other day and I found two different specimens (I'll post the other one in a different thread). I doubt you'll be able to tell me what animal it came from but I was hoping the type of bone could be identified? Its heavy- so I'm pretty sure its fossilized. Its dark brown in color (pictures dont show this) and it appears to be hollow or possibly the marrow has fallen out but the inside looks quite smooth.
  20. Dino bone ID

    Hello, I was out near central alberta the other day and I found two different specimens (I'll post the other one in a different thread). I doubt you'll be able to tell me what dinosaur it came from but I was hoping the type of bone could be identified? I found it at a wash out area at the bottom of a canyon.
  21. Vertebrea from the kemkem formation

  22. 2017 Wyoming Trip

    Before I go back out west to the badlands of Wyoming in July, I thought I should post some pictures of one of my best finds from last years trip; My theropod hand claw (Nanotyrannus/ Juvenile T. Rex?). Hope you enjoy!
