  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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:
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. paleoichthyology:the piscine epidermis

  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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)
  16. 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.
  17. I have found this theropod tooth in my collection. I bought it as a Carcharodontosaurus tooth, but I'm not sure about the Identification. I would like to hear your opinion on the ID. The tooth is from the Kem Kem Formation (Morocco) and is 51mm (2") in lenght. Serrations on the distal carina can be recognized. Can you help me? Kind regards from Germany!
  18. Kem Kem fossil

    Hello All I prepped this fossil today. First decent prep job so I am extremely happy I could do this. The fossil is from the Kem Kem beds and is nearly completely hollow. Before I prepped it it didn't look this hollow, so I tough it would be a vertebra. Now I think it's a skull part. I have no idea from what or from what part this is. What do you all think? It's not that big, about 10 cm. @LordTrilobite, @Troodon, @Haravex Thanks already for your help. Greetings.
  19. How to prep Kem Kem fossils?

    Hello all At a fossil fair last sunday, I obtained a lot of Kem Kem fossils. Some look very interesting (skull parts, turtle carapace...) but I can't ID them very well since they are still covered in matrix. Now this matrix actually exists out of cristals that resemble aragonite. I have no idea how to prep these without damaging the specimens. I have about 10 specimens I want to get cleaned up, but unless this is very easy, I don't dare this. Any place where I can get these fossils prepped? Greetings Thijs
  20. I did some macro photography of one of my Kem Kem teeth (one of those smaller, unidentified dinosaurs), just for kicks. This tooth is under 1cm long. However, I noticed this strange, cross-hatched pattern in beneath the serrations - is this a normal thing? How does it come about? Possibly some sort of cleaning marks? I am curious to know!
  21. Hi, any Sauropod experts out there? i saw this fossil for sale and the seller thinks it could be a partial Sauropod bone from the Kem Kem Beds. He notes that he isn't too confident with the id and could also be from a theropod. It is 12 inches in length. Any diagnostic features that could help? Thanks in advance!
  22. Hey guys, Hello, I discovered this bone in a fossil box about a year ago and bought it for only $ 1.5 because it made me look special somehow. But I do not know to which animal he could belong. For me, however, he resembles a finger bone of a pterosaur. Can you help me maybe? The bone is hollow and 42mm (1,7") in size. Kind regards from Germany!
  23. Dinosaur Verts (Maybe)

    I need some ID help/education. I saw a few vertebra for sale and they are in my price range so I thought I would put them on the forum and gather some more informed opinions about these. First up is a "Raptor" vertebra from Hell Creek. It is around .8" x.5" inches. I lack the skills to determine if it is dinosaurian let alone raptor but my gut says likely not.
  24. I am certainly not getting my hopes up for this fossil, because from experience of seeing theropod teeth placed in croc jaws and people labeling it as a 'rare Spinosaurus or Carcharodontosaurus jaw" on the market, the likelihood of finding an original jaw with associated teeth not from different animals is extremely rare (at least in the case of theropods and pterosaurs). However the seller has this as a Pterosaur jaw piece with one associated Pterosaur tooth and wanted to see whether you all think this is a composite or not. From what i know, there have only been two toothed Pterosaur jaw sections found from the Kem Kem Beds (the holotype for Siroccopteryx and the holotype for Coloborhynchus Fluviferox). The fossils is 5 inches by 3 inches. Thanks.
  25. A Dynamite Dino Donation

    A few months ago we purchased a T-Rex tooth from TFF member @Troodon and he also gave us a super nice Nano tooth. I never got his permission to mention that sale or the gift so I get that anonymous. That is our only T-Rex material and it was also the first fossil donation to our program from a Fossil Forum member. Those teeth really helped us get started becasue it allowed us to use our small budget to fill in other parts of the dinosaur program around having T-Rex stuff. We owe him a huge thank you for that and I wanted to share this on the forum. Well we now have another gigantic THANK YOU to give Frank. I arrived home from work yesterday to find a package from him and it was beautiful dinosaur fossils and some additional non dinosaur Hell Creek material. There were some fantastic fossils in that box and he helped us really strengthen not only the Hell Creek part of dino program but also our African dinosaur section as well. I say this in most of our posts now because it is true. We could not do what we are doing without the support of The Fossil Forum and the members here. @Troodon shares his knowledge and his identification skills with everybody here and that has been invaluable to me. Our dinosaur program is heavily influenced by the knowledge I have gotten from him and bolstered by his generous donations. Thank you Troodon and all of TFF members who donate fossils, share the knowledge and offer encouragement. We really could not do this without you The box o' dinos..... Thescelosaurus fossils (toe bone, vert, two teeth), a beautiful Ceratopsian tooth from HC, an Edmontosaurus tendon, some awesome HC croc teeth, an R.isosceles tooth, a really nice Spino tooth, an abelisaurid tooth,a beautiful Titanosaur indet tooth, and a Ornithomimid toe bone (possibly a juvie Struthiomimus).
