  1. Dino or croc vert

    Hello, i bought this vert today, the seller say that is spino but i need à confirmation. It clarly come from the Kem Kem and it’s realy big
  2. Spino caudal vert ?

    Hello everybody, i’m new on this forum. I bought this vert in south morocco (the kem kem). The seller told me that is a spino vert but the spine seems too long and weird. I need your opinion.
  3. Two teeth from the Kem Kem Beds

    I also found these two teeth at our local fair. I bought them despite of the lack of information privided because the spinosaurid tooth (if it is spinosaurid and not mosasaur) was pretty cheap for its size and the other tooth which was labeled "Rebbachisaurus garasbae" had an unusal shape in contrast to all the other material from Kem Kem that is available here. The seller only provided the information that both teeth are from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. This is the tooth that was labeled as Spinosaurus aegyptiacus. But from my previous tooth I know that one cannot differentiate between S. aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus so that it should be labeled as "Spinosaurus indet.". Is this correct?
  4. Another Moroccan Dromaeosaurid-like Tooth

    So I've just added another new theropod tooth to the collection from the Kem Kem. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's another contender for a potential dromaeosaurid tooth? • Very laterally compressed • "Pinched" to small degree at base • Mesial carina terminates well above the base • Slight twist to mesial carina • Mesial serration count (midline): 6 or 7 per 1mm • Distal serration count (midline): 3 or 4 per 1mm There are also interdental succuli present between distal denticles; not something I've particularly noticed on other dromaeosaurids, so I'm not sure if that has any impact on tentative ID? Lingual side?: Lateral side?: Cross section: Mesial face: Distal face: Pinch at base: Close-ups:
  5. Mystery Theropod Tooth - Kem Kem

    I've been browsing online, and come across this tooth. It's listed as Carch, but the serrations look completely wrong to me. The profile of the tooth doesn't particularly scream Carcharodontosaurid or Abelisaurid (though the distal margin does look quite straight) as far as I can judge. Any ideas, anyone? These are the best photos provided... Mesial margin: Distal margin: Distal denticles:
  6. I saw this on the internet and it says its from the kem kem beds with high probability to being sauropod. But as many of you have suggested in other posts its not easy to ID a bone fragment accurately So can anyone help me see if its a sauropod,theropod or croc?Thanks
  7. Kem Kem ribs ID

    Just got some small rib sections and another bone, the ribs don't look like crocodile, I know it can be difficult to give an I'd on parts of bone but was wondering if it could be mosasaur or maybe land based? Bones are from the Kem Kem beds
  8. Unidentified fish scale from Kem Kem

    Hello, On the internet I found and bought this fossil fish scale from the Kem Kem formation. Unfortunately, I do not know which fish she comes from, as she looks different than any other fish scales from Kem Kem that I know. A box on the sheet is 5x5mm, the scale is ca. 1,7cm long. I hope you can help me with that. Thank you in advance, Jesco
  9. Kem Kem bone Id

    hi there I could use some assistance with a pair of bone IDs. They're Cretaceous, reptile, from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Any help would be appreciated. I think the smaller of the two is a tibia? The second bone is in a reply to this post
  10. Bipedal or quadruped Spinosaurus

    Following the debate about whether spinosaurus was quadruped and could actually swim and if it was bipedal and couldn't I came across a theory that S. aegyptiacus was bipedal and S. morrocanus was quadrupedal what are your thoughts on these theories?
  11. O. dunkeli Kem Kem?

    Hello all I recently bought a tooth from the Kem Kem beds that clearly belongs to the genus Onchopristis. The weird thing about the tooth is that it has two hooks instead of just one. I know the species Onchopristis dunkeli has two (or more) hooks, but I don't find any official rapports metioning them in the Kem Kem beds. The tooth has yet to arrive, but I already wanted to ask the question. What do you think? Is there a chance O. dunkeli occurs in the Kem Kem beds or would it just be a pathological example. I have been searching a long time for a specimen like this. The tooth has not yet arrived so sorry, no photo's yet. @LordTrilobite, @Haravex Greetings Thijs
  12. Croc or spinosaurid teeth? Kem kem

    Hi! Are these teeth croc or spino teeth? , The curvature and the robustness makes me wonder if they could be croc teeth. Both are from Kem Kem Tooth 1:
  13. Was Spinosaurus a crocodile ?

    So i recently visited this forum and i read somewhere that we haven't yet discovered spinosaurus legs and its appearance regarding its feet and legs may be just speculation. The argument that was made was whether spinosaurus was a species of crocodile rather than a dinosaur because he may had small legs. So could that be the case?
  14. Croc kem kem tooth

    Hi! I have a rather big croc tooth from kem kem and I was wondering if it could be a Elosuchus tooth because of its size? or should I just label it as Croc indet?
  15. Kem Kem bones help

    Curious what people made of these Kem Kem bones? I can tell they’ve been restored a bit, but any idea what they came from? They’re all right around 8 inches. Thanks a ton for the help y’all!
  16. Kem kem crocodiles

    Hi! I have a handfull of croc teeth from kem kem , and I would like to learn more about identifying these croc teeth. I know that it can be hard to id these teeth but I was wondering if someone got some papers where most of the discoveries of moroccan crocs are illustrated? , I´ve been trying to find some but with no luck, I just found some papers that only describes Elosuchus.
  17. Unknown Theropod Tooth - Kem Kem

    Here's my latest (tiny) acquisition from the Kem Kem: Looking at the general morphology and almost 'hooked' shape of the denticles on the distal carina, I'm not sure whether this one fits more as a juvenile carcharodontosaurid, juvenile abelisaurid or would fit closer to the dromaeosaurid-like teeth described here?: Mesial midline denticle count: 9/2mm Distal midline denticle count: 7/2mm Both carinae extend to the base. Distal edge: Mesial edge: Cross section (anterior of tooth facing top): Due to the strong lateral compression & apparent lack of interdental succuli, I would hedge my bets on juvie abelisaur, but those denticles are making me doubt it a bit. Anyone got any thoughts?
  18. Serrated Unknown (Croc?) Tooth

    Hola folks, Just picked up an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny tooth from the gift that keeps on giving; Morocco. It was sold as a juvenile Spino tooth, but I'm thinking there's a better chance of it being croc? I liked the look of it, so bought it anyway. Location given: "Hamada gu Guir, Kem Kem Basin, Morocco." Not sure if you can pick out from my crummy photos, but there are definitely denticles present on the carinae, running all the way from tip to base of the crown. There is also fluting present on both the labial & lingual sides of the tooth, running the full crown length. The cross-section appears to be roughly oval, though could be considered circular (it's hard to tell with the shape of the base). Denticles most noticeable in this one: Profile of denticles can also be (kind of) clearly seen on the right side of the tooth here: And a couple more shots: With the lingual curve and denticles, I'd assume croc from this part of the world, though I've read that labial/lingual curves can be found on Baryonychidae....if only haha! Any input on narrowing down exactly what it might be would be much appreciated.
  19. Importing fossils

    Hello all I recently saw a cool tooth on an American website. It's pretty expensive so I don't want to take too much risks. When I look up how much shipping and import costs to Europe would be it would be as much as half the price of the tooth itself. Is this normal or did I do something wrong? Anyone has any experience with this? The fossil is not illegal or anything, it comes from a perfectly legal location. I just think it's weird to pay like 1,5 times the price for a tooth. Looking forward to your answers and help. Greetings and thanks already.
  20. paleoichthyology:the piscine epidermis

    offthescale Histology of ganoid scales from the early Late Cretaceous of the Kem Kem beds, SE Morocco: systematic and evolutionary implications François J. Meunier, René-Paul Eustache , Didier Dutheil & Lionel Cavin Cybium,2016/40(2) "Lepidotes" pankowskii is renamed Note: fig 1 is the only figure dedicated to the macroscopic(naked eye) aspect of the scales. The "histology" in the tags is a dead giveaway where the emphasis lies..
  21. Kem Kem Theropod Tooth

    I need a little help on this Kem Kem theropod tooth. It is listed as .8" but I think it is smaller than that based on one of the pictures. It is listed as a Dromaeosaur tooth. It does not look like an Abelisaur tooth but could it be a small Carch tooth ? I do not know so I thought I would put on the forum to get some opinions.
  22. ID please

    Could someone please ID these two jaw pieces? The first piece is described as reptile and from the hell creek formation and measures 2.5inches and the second is from the Kem Kem basin.
  23. Hi, I have asked before a couple of times about Spinosaur hand claws, i figured my best bet was to look for a Spinosaur foot claw since they seem to be cheaper and less faked imo. I saw this small foot claw supposedly from a Spinosaur (from the Kem Kem) that looks good, but i know i should post it here before thinking about a possible purchase. The seller says it has minor repair. Thanks in advance!
  24. Kem Kem bone - What is this?

    Hi I am staring at this fossil from the Kem Kem beds and I cannot figure out what I am looking at. Could this be a piece of a skull? These are the only pictures I have (no straight views, sorry)
  25. Spinosaurid hand phalanx?

    Hi, Wanted to ask whether this hand phalanx bone resembles a Spinosaurid hand phalanx or whether it might be something else like from a croc or another theropod group (it looks somewhat hollow). It is quite a large bone at about 24.5cm in length and is from the kem kem (it has also had some small repair work). Thanks in advance.
