  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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).
  9. Hi everyone, Im looking at a bunch of stuff that someone got from the big fossil expo this month, but I want to be sure of what is what before I do anything. There's a few things way beyond what I could potentially get, but I'm just curious about in general. These are all Moroccan, and most, if not all, are Kem Kem. are these first 4 pics spinosaur? With the teeth I know the 2 on the top&left are probably carchar teeth, but I'm wondering about the other 2. In the 2nd picture, I'm guessing the right one is a spinosaur vert, right? What about the other one? I'm sure it would probably be very hard to tell with just a single rib, but could the rib be spinosaurus? It seems to match some museum spino skeleton ribs, but that's the best I can figure out:/
  10. I've found another interesting tooth from kem kem, Rugops Primus or Abelisauridae indet. Is the best classification? Thanks
  11. Found a very interesting item online. But because of the price-class of it, and because I think the connecting part of the claw looks strange for a theropod handclaw, I thought I'd post it here. What is your opinions? Is this a "Spinosaurus Hand-Claw"? I think it looks real enough, but I just haven't seen any theropod hand-claw without a broad connective-end like this one.
  12. I have this evening and tomorrow to get up a bit more of the dinosaur collection before it is back to sharks. We have programs starting soon so my focus will be well away from dinos for a few months probably. Prepare to be underwhelmed lol I thought we would be heavy on the Moroccan dinosaurs because they are so abundant. Surprisingly, we are pretty light on African dinosaurs. I found a path to getting us deeper into North American animals. It is a bonus that an area we will need to fill is the most abundant and affordable. The dinosaur program will have a different scientific concept behind than sharks. The best state science standard we can hit for 1st-3rd graders is geology so some of the dinosaur program will focus on the formations in goelogical terms. I am looking forward to learning more about the paleoecology of this region and talking about how we can get clues about the habitats from the rocks. It is an interesting collection of animals to learn about. We have a "raptor" tooth from Kem Kem. You know, one of those "raptors". Is it Deltradromodeus or is it an abelisaur? The question can not be answered so we are presenting it as it is, a Theropd indet from North Africa. No need to go much further. It presents a great opportunity to discuss with the kids how difficult it is to describe dinosaur species. We know it is a Theropd tooth and it was carnivorous. We know there are several different dinosaurs it could be but we can not say for sure. I can not tell if my sauropod tooth is a Rebbachisaurus or not but i know you can ID them. I also know there is another sauropod in Kem Kem. If we were presenting tomorrow, it would be Rebbachisaurus. They are one cool looking dinosaur. With some more education, i will be able to tell. Either way, this tooth is the only sauropod fossil we have so this becomes the first dinosaur we really can really expand on. These teeth are inexpensive and this is the only sauropod we are likely to have fossils for. The long-neck dinosaurs are the biggest land animals ever and kids know them so we will be adding more teeth to bulk up the presentation. I have yet to pick up Spinosaur teeth but they are next on the list. I am still learning about Spinosaur teeth and have been cautious. We want to make sure we get some of the inexpensive teeth for the kids to handle and a nice example for the presentation. Carcharodontosaurus is one we will add but not until I have studied them better. There is a wide range of prices and quality. Pic 1- Theropod indet, Kem Kem. Pic 2- Sauropod indet, Kem Kem.
  13. Is This a Spinosaurus Vert?

    I found what looks to be a deal on one of my favorite auction websites! Could it possibly be another Spinosaurus Vert?
  14. Kem Kem vert ID

    Can anyone ID this please? The groove on the side has me puzzled.
  15. What kind of tooth is this?

    I found a tooth here online and it claims to be a Raptor tooth from Hell Creek. It has a classic Kem Kem color and kinda looks like a croc tooth?
  16. Rebbachisaur Tooth

    Tooth of a rebbachisaurid sauropod.
  17. Abelisaurid tooth

    Acquired from a British fossil dealer in January 2019.
  18. Kem Kem crocodile tooth

    I stumbled upon this neat crocodile tooth from the Kem Kem Beds, and I was wondering if there's any possibility of labeling it beyond crocodyliform? Any help would be appreciated!
  19. Kem Kem dinosaur ilium

    I received this Kem Kem ilium in the post today. It's a rather nice piece, if a little nibbled and in need of quite a lot of prep. As far as I can see, it's totally original with no restoration, but one repaired crack. It was described as a juvenile spinosaurus ilium. I always take such descriptions with a very large pinch of salt. Obviously there were plenty of other dinosaurs in Kem Kem, so I suppose it could be from a fully-grown, but smaller species. I am confident that it's dinosaur and not crocodile, since croc iliums tend to be stockier, with the socket closed at one side. But I can't find any exact parallels to this one. Has anybody seen anything like it? I know I may not be able to narrow it down, but I thought I'd give it a shot.
  20. Can anybody tell what this vertebra is from? I believe it's from Kem Kem. *would this be a rib cage vert?
  21. Spinosaurus Jaw Piece? Or Crocodile?

    So I found this item online. And I've been looking for a jaw piece from a Spinosaurus for a while, and then tripped over this. However... I'm a bit in doubt with this one. Is this possibly a crocodile fossil? The teeth seem to be "long enough" to me, for it to be a spinosaurid, and the picture showing the roots from below seems to be not "completely conical" like most crocs. But then again I could be wrong, the teeth and jaw-pieces of kem kem crocs and spinosaurs do look very much alike, if only seen from "small" fragments like this one. So I find it a bit hard to determine on my own. What do you think?
  22. Dinosaur claw id?

    Hi, hopefully the pictures are showing. Saw this rough looking claw for sale and wondering if it can be identified (from the Kem Kem). I am thinking the look of this claw corresponds to a Spinosaurid or an Abelisaurid claw, any thoughts about it? Thanks.
  23. Not sure how to identify if a fossil is fake or not with something like this, but I bought this spinosaurus tooth from Kem Kem some time ago and I do not know if it is real. It almost seems a bit too pretty and the price was really cheap, I don't remember exactly but it was around 10 dollars.7.2 cm in length. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  24. A chevron bone? But from what?

    Bought this bone from a private collector some years back. It's a big chevron(?) bone from an unidentified creature, found in the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Anyone who would have a guess at what this could be from? It's obviously some big creature with a chevron bone at that size, so perhaps a large dinosaur or crocodile of some sort?
  25. I bought this bone in a German store a while ago. It is an "unidentified" bone from the Kem Kem Beds in Morocco. I am not exactly sure what it is, or what it's from, but to me it looks a bit like a small skull element or perhaps a broken-off part of a vertebrate? Are there anyone who can tell what kind of bone this is? It's about 5,5 cm in length.
