  1. I haven't been in a position to buy many fossils lately, but I did splash out on this small Halisaurus skull, which I felt was quite unusual. I'm not entirely sure how much of it is present. It looks like most of the front 2/3rds of the skull are mostly present. The visible jaw fragments on the right are confusing, since the teeth are pointing the wrong way. So presumably that got turned around somehow. It's a bit mixed up - also, it 'sinks' in the middle, as if it's been impacted against something (or bitten, but that might be a bit fanciful). There are probably some bones below the visible ones (perhaps a bit of the other jaw) but I'm not holding out hope for much. I like it, though. View from the snout. The visible jaw fragments on the left jaw (the mosasaur's left). With sausage fingers for scale.
  2. Mosasauroid Jaw

    Hi guys, I have recently acquired this Mosasauroid partial jaw. Seller claimed it is a juvenile Mosasaur. He acknowledged that some of the teeth may have been reattached. But he didnt know which, he got it from his supplier like this. And upon further questioning, he also admited that he is not absolutely sure about the genus. He speculated juvenile Mosasaur due to its size, but i dont think a smaller genus of Mosasaur, like Halisaurus, Tethysaurus or Platecarpus, is out of the picture. Please help me identify the genus of this Mosasuroid and the location of this jaw (dentary or mandible, left or right). If you would be so kind, please also point out to me, which teeth are wrongly attached, or maybe, composite. (The 3 red arrows are the teeth that felt quite real) Thanks. Edit: Almost forgot, seller claimed it came from a Phosphate deposit at Khourigba, Morocco.
  3. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    So I got this jaw that I was talking about and I still kinda want to clean the matrix and I read somewhere that if you put it in water it gets removed is this the case? Also I see white things like bones stuck in the matrix as well ( like those seen in the picture) are these bones or just rocks? Thank you very much for your time.
  4. I've been lucky enough to get hold of halisaur skull fragments over the past few years! I'd like to start assembling them in to some sort of composite for display purposes within my collection! I would love to see any Halisaurus skulls you guys have? Especially bone layouts so I may identify where my bones fit! Thanks!
  5. Halisaur ?

    Hi! I have some smaller 2-3 cm mosasaur teeth, and I Wonder if these 5 teeth are halisaurus teeth? I feel pretty certain with The first one but im not so sure about the other four.
  6. A package arrived from Spain. Its ill-used appearance caused initial concern, but all was well inside. Within the box - two fossil specimens IDed as: Halisaurus; Upper Cretaceous, Maastrichtian stage; Ouled Abdoun Basin (Phosphate beds); Oued Zem, Morocco. Forum member jnoun11 graciously reviewed photos and provided additional refinement of the ID and the life position of the sections. Halisaurus arambourgi The two jaw sections. upon arrival Right dentary, lingual aspect, 4.56 inches Left maxillary, 5.23 inches
  7. Mosasaur jaw sections

    Two Mosasaur jaw sections arrived today. They are marked "A" & "B" in the photos. Each is approx. 4.5 to 5 ". Please look them over and comment. Including, but not limited to; accuracy of ID info, life position of each section (upper/lower, right/left), how you would proceed with additional prep (if any). Info from the seller: Halisaurus; Upper Cretaceous, Maastrichtian; Ouled Abdoun Basin (phosphate beds); Oued Zem, Morocco.
  8. Hi everyone I found this mosasaur jaw online and can anyone tell me if this jaw is fabricated?
  9. Hi all I just wanted to share a project that Ebrocklds and I finished up and shipped over to Europe a few weeks ago. It is a fantastic 14 foot Halisaurus sp? from Morocco. It is quite different anatomically form Halisaurus arambourgi in that is has several strange skull proportions and features, as well as a few skeletal anomalies. Its skull was 100% complete, which allowed us to do many comparisons. As you can see from the pictures, the parietal eye is raised nearly 1/2 inch above the rest of the skull. The Maxillary on each side at the nasal opening has a raised, cylindrical, ridge. The post-orbital/frontal are very thin and flattened and sit at a very strange angle that was not altered by compression. All-in-all, it is a very unique and interesting animal. (Yes those are my adorable daughters) Enjoy.
  10. Mosasaur setup timelapse

    At the Denver show last month we were lucky enough to be able to purchase a full Mosasaur Haliasaurus Arambourgi skeleton which is 80% original. Last week we assembled him on our dining room table, and we made a time lapse movie of it for your enjoyment: This setup is only temporary. We will be getting a new pedestal for him, and repainting the room to better display him. -Brian

    Mosasaur jaw in matrix Specie: Halisaurus arambourgui Locality: Ouled Abdoun, Morocco Geological Age: Cretaceous
  16. This is a Mosasaur jaw, supposedly from Halisaurus arambourgui from Morocco. I have been using UV light check on it and looking at where the teeth meets the jaw and can't quite be sure whether if there are restorations or repairs on this specimen. The jaw does look genuine, although the teeth do look a little less curvy than a typical Halisaurus teeth I have seen, but I don't think they are teeth from a different specie of animal. So I am now mostly curious with possibility of restoration since the teeth seem to stick out a little high from the jaw so I am not sure if that's natural or they may be because of some putty work done on it, I am not quite sure. Anyhow, here is what the specimen looks like. Any opinion or confirmation on this specimen is appreciated. Thx:
