    Attempt to smuggle Egyptian fossils foiled By: Egypt Today staff Mon, Jan. 7, 2019 http://www.egypttoday.com/Article/1/63165/Attempt-to-smuggle-Egyptian-fossils-foiled Yours, Paul H.
  5. Hello everyone I’m new to this forum. My name is Tom, I’ve been collecting crystal rocks and fossils from the dessert area of Egypt, Sinai & southern Israel since the 1990’s. The one pictured here was recovered long time ago, It was 80 meters into the ground while digging in Granit rocks (construction in the middle of the desert..) I don’t know much about this and would love to to hear from the experts. I have so many fossils that I don’t know anything about, I’m planning to sell some to fund my college 2nd degree, so any info will be great. I’m very happy I found this forum Thanks in advance and I wish you all great day. Tom.
  6. Dear colleagues I found this strange small thin disk on the surface of the sand in the desert in Giza, Egypt (just outside Cairo). It's very thin and has concentric lines, each line being made up of small dots. I can't find anything like it on various fossil sites that I looked at. It's only 2.5cm (one inch) in diameter and very thin. Many thanks to anyone who has the time to reply, even if it's just speculation (it's fun guessing too !)
  7. 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.
  8. A new paper is available online: Sara Saber; Joseph J.W. Sertich; Hesham M. Sallam; Khaled A. Ouda; Patrick M. O'Connor; Erik R. Seiffert (2018). An enigmatic crocodyliform from the Upper Cretaceous Quseir Formation, central Egypt. Cretaceous Research. in press. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2018.04.004. The Cenomanian-age Bahariya Formation may be the most fossiliferous geologic unit in the land of pyramids and mummies, but Wahasuchus represents the first terrestrial crocodyliform to be described from uppermost Cretaceous deposits in North Africa, and comes upon the description of Mansourasaurus by expanding upon rudimentary knowledge of terrestrial archosaurs from the Campanian-Maastrichtian of mainland Africa (excluding Madagascar).

  11. Odd Egyptian fossil

    Hello, This strange fossil was found in Egypt by my mother. It's roughly 4 inches long and weighs a little under 1 kg. It's shaped like a pear and has four holes, three at the bottom and one on the side towards the tapering top. See attached photos. Side: Front (I assume?): The three holes at the bottom: Any guess as to what this could be? Thanks in advance!

  13. Fossil From Giza

    Hi, could you, please, help me with this fossil? Approximate dimensions: 4 x 2 cm (1.6 x 0,8 in) I suppose it can be fragment of some gasteropod, but I can not find anything similar on the Internet. I have found it in Egypt, near the pyramids of Giza. There were also lot of numullites and bivalve. It should be of Eocene age (stage Lutetian, formation Mokattam) More information: http://www.paleoweb....ky/05_Egypt.php Thanks, A.
