  1. Pterosaur tooth with root

    Hello all, Here is a rooted pterosaur tooth from the kemkem. It's 6.5 cm long and is from the Kemkem. Does anyone know if an exact species can be determined for this tooth?
  2. Hi . I got some rooted teeth. I heard they are harder to find because it means the dinosaur died. So are these good Thanks
  3. Kem kem id part iv

    The first one is somthing I cant assign to a family, the closest is this example of therizinosaurid
  4. Hello everybody ok, its a little clickbaity, because I'm not talking about a scientific article, as I'm just a random amateur with no scientific background. But I had the chance to publish an article in the most important german fossil magazine, the Steinkern, with around a circulation of 1,500 With good content everybody can write an article there, from amateurs like me to professional paleontologists. It mainly focues on german fossils, like Amonites and other Marine fossils, but is open to all fossil fields. Just use this link to scroll through some magazines to get an idea what I talk about, its in German, but I think you'll get the idea https://www.steinkern.de/steinkern-fossilien-zeitschrift.html I got in contact with the editor of Steinkern and he offered me the chance to write an article about Dinosaurs since he doesn't really know anyone who is really that into Dino fossils and the Steinkern magazine has had not much articles regarding Dinosaurs. That is a problem I already saw a lot of time. Germany is not a "Dinosaur-Country", there are not that many people that focus on Dinosaurs, so with KemKem teeth, there is a lot of misinformation going around. You can see that most of the time on German fossils shows, where a lot of people just belive what the seller is telling them. I wanted to clear things up, so that people from Germany know what they buy and especially what the DON'T buy. Of course I had to include several of my best teeth. Like my 4.5 inch Carch tooth This is a guide from an amateur to amateurs on how to ID Theropod teeth from KemKem with all the problems we at TFF are aware of. I cover the following problems: Spinosaurid Carcharodontosaurid Abelisaurid Deltadromeus agilis Dromaeosaurid Theorpod teeth in general Even though its just an amateur article I have an Reference list of 20 scientific article from Stromer 1915 until Ibrahim 2020. I want to thank @Troodon for helping me with a lot of questions I got. His guides here at TFF where very usefull. Here you got the summary with the mention of my article: https://www.steinkern.de/inhaltsangaben/1355-heft43.html It was a great honor for me and I decided to go with the Identification of Theropod teeth from the KemKem since these a fossils found all over the internet and fossils shows, but the ID is hardly done correctly. For the frist time, there is finally an article in German that will work as a ID - guide for KemKem Theropod teeth. I feel a little proud of myself, that I managed to publish it
  5. I have heard about the recent discovery of a new species of airborne dinosaurs in the KemKem and was wondering whether the scientists said something about the teeth of this species. Perhaps it is now possible to shed some light onto some Ornitocheirid teeth from the formation... Unfortunately I cannot access the paper. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303293 Has anybody the complete paper on this species or knows any details? Thanks in advance!

  9. Could this be a Deltadromeus tooth?

    I recieved this today from Strepsodus. All he could tell me was that it's from the Kemkem basin. I'm just wondering if this might be a Deltadromeus tooth and if not, then what might it be? It's 3cm. long.
  10. Kem kem dromaeosauridae jaw?

    Hello! I get this jaw with a tooth from Kem Kem. The tooth seems like abelisaurid or dromaeosauridae. What do you think? Thank you so much!
  11. Large KemKem bone

    I have this large bone from the KemKem basin in my collection and was wondering if anyone can identify it? I know little about Cretaceous fossils. The fossil is quite one sided so the other side doesn’t show any structures. Thanks, Daniel
  12. Hello everyone so we have this Vertebra here from Taouz, Morocco, KemKem. It's just described as a Dinosaur Vertebrae, no further ID. Really not sure what to make of it. Is it a Franken-Vertebra? Just not good enough prepped? A big cluster of glue and different bone fragments? Just very bad weathered? It is at a reasonable price I'm willing to pay even if it turns out the be just a Franken-Vertebra while I work on it. Just to get some training on prepping. But I would love to hear if it is worth to spend any money on it. And while we're at it: And ID possible? Is it Dinosaur? Maybe Theropod? Or Croc? Or just not possible to ID? Unfortunately there are no other pictures available. Size is 91 mm x 76 mm (3.58 inches x 2.99 inches) Any help is welcome. Thank you!
  13. Hi, Thank you so much for helping me last time. May I know the fossil is real or not, please? Thank you.
  14. Are there any papers/articles on Enchodus being in the Kem Kem formation? Also does anyone have any specimens they'd like to show off here because I read here that some people have specimens of it, and it just hasn't been described.
  15. Here is one of two serrated Spinosaurus teeth I recently acquired. Let me know what you think! The tooth is from Kemkem and is about 3cm in lenght. The serrations are very small, but still visible with the naked eye as I spotted this one on a fossil fair some time ago.
  16. I am looking for some nice, decent prized Moroccan dinosaur fossils. I can't really find any decent sellers online though, I would really appreciate it if someone could maybe PM me some contact info! Thanks in Advance!
  17. Posible Deltadromeus huge tooth

    Hello! What do you think about this tooth? Posible Deltadromeus? Thank you so much! IMG_3885.mp4
  18. Hello I have just bought through an online auction my first fossil, supposedly a Carcarodontossaurus tooth but I'm in doubt if it is real. Can you guys help me analyzing it's authenticity? Description and pictures follows below: LOCATION: Taouz, Errachidia Province, South Morocco GEOLOGICAL FORMATION: Ifezouane Formation, Red Sandstone Beds, KemKem Basin Size and weight: 50.5 mm • 1.99 in, 13g DESCRIPTION Finest grade Carcharodontosaurus tooth. It is complete, from the base to the tip. Its lateral serrations are deeply developed. This tooth has been stabilized on its surface by Paraloid B-72 to ensure its stability and consistency. This process does not affect neither the color nor any of the characteristics. It simply makes the specimen better preserved in the long term. It has small fractures that have been glued but no restored or fabricated at the lower part of the tooth.

  20. Kem kem claw

    Hello! Can you help me for ID this claw? It is from kem kem. The seller told me that it has not restoration. Thank you so much
  21. Bone?

    Hi is this a piece of bone its in matrix and is from the Kem Kem formations Morocco.
  22. Pterosaur Fossils are a rarity, and few ever are on the public market, but the Pterosaurs from the Kem Kem Beds are seen most commonly on the market, this is rather not due to an unusally high Pterosaur abundance, but rather because almost every Fossil is being collected at this locality. Currently, there are 4 named species from the Kem Kem Beds, but the actual number is far higher. The Named Taxa are Alanqa saharica, Xericeps curvirostris, Sirrocopteryx morrocanus and Coloborhynchus fluviferox. Some unnamed ones im allowed to talk about are the Kem Kem Tapejarid, a small Chaoyangopterid species and a 3rd Ornithocheirid. The small Chaoyangopterid originally was identified as a Pteranodontid, but it is a Chaoyangopterid. There are up to 4 more Pterosaurs from this Locality, but I am not allowed to talk about them, all of them Azhdarchoids though. The 3rd Ornithocheirid wont affect the identification of any of the Ornithocheirid teeth, but that's all I can say. Sirrocopteryx and Coloborhynchus The Identification of Pterosaur Teeth from Kem Kem has recently become impossible to the genus level, for the most part that. C. fluviferox is a gigantic Ornithocheirid, and any Teeth of greater size might be referable to it, cf. Coloborhynchus fluviferox. Another thing notable is that the Identification can be restricted to a subfamily, Coloborhynchinae indet. instead of Ornithocheiridae/Anhangueridae indet., although this is rather Nitpicky. Alanqa and Xericeps Both of these Taxa are primarily known from Mandible and Rostral Tips, identification of these is rather easy, with the one of Alanqa being triangular in crossection, and the ones of Xericeps curving upward. Loads of Postcrania is also often refered the either of the two, referal is inconclusive though, especially considering there are more than just those two. The Chaoyangopterid and Tapejarid I have never seen either two on sale, but I will be mentioning them further too. The Tapejarid is a large Taxon related to Sinopterus, it's the first image. But there is more Material I cant mention. The small Chaoyangopterid is just a mandible fragment, but it has a rather deep crest. What about the Dsungaripterid? The Material of the Dsungaripterid most likely represents Xericeps.
  23. Hello everybody So this fossil here bothers me for some time now because I'm still not sure what to make of it. I'm especially asking for the roots in the jaw and if they are a composite. Also this one tooth growing out of the root of the root looks odd to me. Is this a genuine fossil or are these roots / tooth put in the jaw? I'm used to these fake teeth put on jaws as a composite form Morocco but with this one I'm still not sure what am I looking at. On one side you can actually see the root in the jaw. Would something like this be fabricated as well? And is the ID correct? It's described as a partial maxillary of an Elosuchus sp. from the Ifezouane Formation, KemKem from Taouz/Morocco. No word about any restoration/fabrication or what so ever. Size is 3.48 in (8,84 cm).
  24. carcharodontosaurus tooth

    Hello, This is my latest acquisition. A tooth of carcharodontosaurus sp (impossible to certify that it is saharicus I think?). How do you find it? Is it a nice piece ? There is a lot of restoration or red flag ? Thanks !
  25. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    Hello, so I was thinking about buying this piece but i would love it if I could remove the matrix from it to make it look better. Is this possible? Thanks-
