  1. 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.
  2. Dyrosaurus jaw

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

  3. I posted recently asking for opinions on a partial Moroccan Dyrosaurus skull and jaws that I've had for a while, waiting for me to do something with it. The feedback I had encouraged me to start work on it, so I'm going to document my progress here. I seem to have most of the skull and upper jaws, though it is in a very fragmentary state. The bone pieces are very delicate and most are still covered in matrix. I plan to clean and consolidate all of the bones, and then mount them in 3D. Whether I will do this in the traditional way, or with the help of my 3D printer, I am as yet undecided. This summarises my position as of now: I have lots of bones, and don't know what they are. I have no idea what I'm doing. I have never done anything like this before. I'm sure a lot of people would tell me to leave it alone and give it to a professional to do, but firstly I don't have that kind of money and secondly I am keen to learn. If anybody has any tips at any point, those would be greatly appreciated. If you'd rather tell me something in confidence, please send me a message and I will keep the information to myself. Anything I discover on my own I will post here for the benefit of anybody else stupid enough to attempt this. I have cleaned a few of the bones so far, and after some initial hiccups, it's now going well. My method is to dab water onto the matrix, which quickly soaks it up. I continue until the matrix is sodden, at which point is usually comes away fairly easily using a dental pick and a scalpel. As I go, I consolidate the outside of the bones using small quantities of superglue to prevent breaks, and help maintain the basic stability if anything does break. When I'm finished, I have the option of using solvents to remove a bit of the excess glue, but whilst I'm working on it I want to know it's not going to fall to bits. Once I have removed the bulk of the matrix, I use a damp brush to remove any residual bits, and then a dry brush to remove small particles. Then I repeat as necessary. Here's my progress so far - a handful of cleaned and partially cleaned bones. My aim isn't to get them all pristine and white, just to remove the matrix to a point where all of the shapes and details can be seen. I don't mind a little bit of Moroccan sand here and there. Anyway, that's how far I've gotten. I will post occasional progress updates as I progress! I will also post better images in future - I am a professional photographer, so posting poor quality smartphone shots is inexcusable! Feedback or advice is most welcome.
  4. I obtained this partial crocodile skull and jaw some time ago, and haven't done anything with it yet. It's from Morocco, and was sold as sarcosuchus, though I imagine it's actually dyrosaurus. No idea whether it's just one specimen, or a mixture of bits. The teeth are glued on. Several of the pieces are also so fragile that they basically crumble when touched. Is there a method I should be using to stabilise them? I know very little about crocs, but I would love to get this to some kind of displayable state. I can digitally sculpt and 3D print missing pieces later, but my main problem at this stage is actually understanding what I have. Many of the bits are - and I assume will remain - unknown bone fragments, but many are large and identifiable - with the right references and knowledge (which I don't yet posses). Is there any advice that anyone could offer which isn't "put it in a box and forget about it"? I appreciate that I must sound like an idiot to people that know their stuff - my specialism is ammonites, which I can prep to a very high standard, but the only vertebrates you find around here are ichthyosaurs. I don't exactly need my hand held, but a few pointers would be very much appreciated!
