  1. Tiny Kem Kem Claw

    Any thoughts on this? Unfortunately, given the small size, seller can't get much better photos, so I hope these two will do. It's sold as a dinosaur claw, but I think with these sorts of claws it's pretty difficult to tell whether croc, dino or something else. But if anyone has a thought, that would be great. Also, the first pic--the sort of crack going along the side from about halfway, is that a concern that it's restored/fabricated, or just a bog standard crack? I can't see similar on the other side photo, which makes me think it's just a minute crack. Also, as well as a bit of the tip missing, is it also missing a small section of the back? Many thanks
  2. So, this theropod tooth came in a lot of a bunch of other teeth I bought as part of a box lot of about 20 Kem Kem theropod teeth. Most of it was in pretty bad condition, and there wasn't really provenance attached to them, but I paid literally pocket change for them. But to get back on point, I wasn't sure if this was an Abelisauridae, or a Carcharodontosaurus, possibly an indeterminate theropod. My gut feeling is that it's an Abelisauridae, but I'm not sure, Abelisaurid teeth tend to be much more easily recognizable, and I have a lingering doubt on this one. Measurements are in centimeters. Assuming I did the serration density count right, both sides are 12/5mm or 2.4/mm
  3. Kem Kem Croc bone

    Hello, This caught my eye. It's sold as a crocodile bone from the Kem Kem beds, but the fact it's hollow makes me think it might actually be theropod. Are croc bones hollow? It is 9 inches by 3.5 by 2.7.
  4. Tooth - Spinosauridae indet.

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Spinosauridae indet. Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco Probably the most common dinosaur fossil available on the market, a Kem Kem Spinosaurid tooth. At least two spinosaurid species are known from Kem Kem; Spinosaurus aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis. As there are no known teeth of Sigilmassasaurus, comparisons between the two are impossible and determining the genus which the tooth belongs to is also impossible.
  5. Tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Species: Carcharodontosaurus saharicus Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco A lot of the enamel is missing, but an otherwise well-preserved tooth of Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, some would prefer labelling Kem Kem Carcharodontosaurid teeth as "Carcharodontosauridae indet." on account of Sauroniops pachytholus, but a 2020 study declared that it was likely synonymous with C. saharicus so I am comfortable with just referring to it as a tooth of Carcharodontosaurus.
  6. Kem Kem bone

    Here is another fossil I have trouble seeing how an ID was made, from Kem Kem in Morocco. This was sold to me as a bone from a Spinosaurus, but is this identifiable as coming from Spinsaurus or even a dinosaur at all? It's clearly from a quite large animal as it measures 7-8 centimetres (2.75-3.15 inches; depending on how you count) long and isn't even complete, so perhaps that is indicative of dinosaurian origin at least? Or could it possibly alternatively have come from one of the crocodylomorphs in Kem Kem? Is there anything about this that confidently places it as coming from a dinosaur? Could it's location in the skeleton be inferred or is it too fragmentary? Thanks in advance
  7. Hello, I'm new to this forum. In the last months I have been involved in a project regarding North Africa spinosaurids.Because of the reduced data I have, I want to know if anyone could share photos of their specimens.Most of the specimens I need are presacral vertebrae and posterior cranial bones(including,if possible,a braincase). Also, any information in favour of a second morphotype could be really helpful;even though I have already treated this point, I want different opinions on this topic. Thanks a lot in advance to anyone.
  8. Spinosaurus Claw

    What's your take on the repair/restoration/legitimacy of this specimen? Thanks,
  9. Dromaeosaurs tooth?

    Hi everyone! According to these images, can anyone be sure that it is likely to be a tooth from a dromaeosaurid? It was found in KemKem Beds. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
  10. Here is some of my first 6 months of fossil collection ! ( some still in transit oversea ...) First of all I really enjoy spending time in this forum and I feel very lucky to be member of this forum ! some of my collection was ID by you guys Soooo...LET get started !

  11. This is my first time in this forum, I’m really enjoy all your post. I have seen this spino claw and I don’t know if is real, can you help me with this? Really thank you
  12. Hi, I hope the pictures are adequate for a possible identification. This is being sold as a theropod limb bone from the Kem Kem. The seller states that it arrived broken and it was hollow like a theropod bone (but filled with sand and has had a few glued repairs). It is 23.5cm in length and I am wondering if it does look like a limb bone and if it might be a Spinosaurid bone since it reminds me a bit of a Spinosaur phalanx (although the seller lists it as an unidentified dinosaur). Thank you!
  13. Kem Kem beds: fish experts needed

    Hello all Here is have 2 single vertebrae and one string of vertebrae from unknown fish species from the Cenomanian (Late Cretaceous) Kem Kem beds in Morocco. There are very many fish species in this assemblage, and I don't really expect a specific species, but I would like to know if it's possible to determine family level for example. First vertebra: Here is a side view and a view from both front and back. Both front and back are hollow. It's 3.6 cm high, 2.2 wide and 1.2 deep. Second vertebra: One side is negative, other side is positive. It's 1.6 cm high, 2.2 cm wide and 1.2 deep. Third is a vertebrae string. Size is 17 cm by 4 cm by 3 cm. Associated material is very rare at this place, so this is certainly an uncommon piece. I'm happy with it regardless, but it's been sold as coelacanth (Mawsonia lavocati). I'm not certain if this is correct, since the very few coelacanth I've seen seem to have some kind of tube rather than real vertebrae. Not sure if that's really the case. I aso wonder what those bony plates are, maybe it can help to ID the piece.
  14. Pterosaur teeth from Morocco

    What about pterosaur teeth from Morocco? I have see hundreds of these teeth, nice teeth with [inexpensive] price only. Other pterosaur teeth, for example ramphorynchus, cost [is very expensive]. Pterosaur teeth from kem kem beds of Morocco are very common fossil, but other pterosaur material from Morocco, i think not. I want to buy a tooth, but first to learn some facts.
  15. Cervical vertebra Morocco

    Hi everyone, I bought this fossil, it was labelled as a possible cervical vertebra section and comes from Morocco. Has anyone got any idea what animal it may have come from? Is it part of a vertebra? Hope you can shed some light on it. Thanks.
  16. Kem kem vertebra

    I got this vertebra from kem kem ,Morocco for quite a while and even make a topic for help in ID before ( maybe 2-3 mo ago ? not sure can't remember) . now I finally have time to clean & remove some matrix that cover this vertebra and I hope that could help in identification of this vertebra I appreciate every comment and opinion on ID this vertebra . Thank you. Guns.
  17. Croc or Spino

    Hello, I won this last night. Sold as Spino, but I have my doubts cos of how thin it is and the fact it went for a really low price makes me think it is also croc. If someone can take a look, that would be great. If spino, then I gotba bargain. If croc, well, it is still a lower than normal price and will be nice on my crocodile vertebra row. Sorry for screenshot pics, im on phone so cant save directly. It is from Kem Kem basin. 2.16 inch. 216 g in weight. Many thanks
  18. Im looking to purchase this spinosaurus tooth but I have heard many stories of fakes so I wanna ask for your opinions
  19. Abelisaurid tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Beware, these are commonly sold as "raptor" or "deltadromeus" teeth.
  20. Kem Kem femur?

    Here's a 45 cm / 17.7 inch long bone from the Kem Kem of Morocco. I don't know what animal this belonged to. Maybe a theropod or crocodilian?
  21. Carcharodontosaurid or other theropod?

    I bought this tooth 5-6 weeks ago, as a carcharodontosaurid tooth. Very nice tooth, but, i think that the tooth is very flat for carcharodontosaurid. I don't have photos with the cross section, but try to imagine a tooth 1.94 inch long that is only 6-7 mm thick.
  22. Titanosaur tooth ?

    Hello all . Need some help on ID ! i came across this tooth label as Titanosaur tooth from Kem Kem , Morocco seller claim that this tooth have a few repair . pls let me know what you guy think about this tooth many thank you . Guns
  23. Spinosaurus bone?

    I’m gambling that this is a spinosaur bone, as it is supposed to be, but I really don’t know. Can anyone ID what this bone is, and if it’s spinosaurus or not? It’s apparently from Kem Kem. Thanks so much for any, and all help:)
  24. Alanqa pterosaur beak?

    Saw this pair for sale, now they are sold as Alanqa but, I've seen some Alanqa beak fossils posted on here and they have a triangular shape to them, which makes me think these aren't Alanqa. Anyone able to help and let me know if they are pterosaur and/or which species they might be from, if it's possible to tell? Pictures -1 - 4 are of the first one. It is 1.5 inch Pictures 5 - 8 are of the 2nd is 1.1 inch Many thanks
  25. Pterosaur bone?

    Hello, Any thoughts on this? Sold as a pterosaur finger bone--repaired in two places. From Kem Kem basin. Seller describes it as being dense but lightweight. 10.3 cm long
