  1. I've bee looking around at different vertebrae but cannot seem to find a match any ideas? A rough guide in the right direction as to what it looks like it could be from? ventral to dorsal measurment are 12mm anterior to posterior is 15mm and lateral left to right side is 21mm Thanks in advance.
  2. Dino Vert Kem Kem?

    Listed as dinosaur vert from Kem Kem Beds...is it dinosaur or reptile? If it is dinosaur, can it be narrowed down to theropod, etc.? Thanks
  3. Theropod bone?

    Hi, I am looking at this bone from the kem kem and i was wondering how do you tell the difference between a theropod bone and a crocodilian bone?. The bone is hollow but only a bit (the hollow part still has matrix in it), does the morphology of this bone suggest theropod? Thanks.
  4. Weird Kem Kem tooth

    This tooth was picked up on fieldwork in Morocco in a mining village called Begaa. So it's provenance is certain. It is very very strange. I have shown it to many experts in the field, and all have come back with 'i don't know'. The root-crown boundary is just at the start of the orange discolouration. I am thinking crocodile or sauropod? But any input or ideas would be great! It is not fabricated in anyway. I have soaked it in acetone and looked at it down a microscope to see any joins... there aren't any! And it's completely free of matrix. So it is definitely real... just really frickin' weird! each square = 2mm, so specimen is about ~2mm in height
  5. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!
  6. Some more Moroccan fossil listings. Wondering if any are worth looking into. Trying to properly ID. #1 Partial unidentified dino limb bone or Croc?
  7. Spinosaurus teeth so far...

    So far I have only 2 Spinosaurus teeth in my collection. Their not very impressive by the fact that they’re small with lots of feeding wear on their tips. Hopefully, I can collect more impressive specimens in the future. I added a drawing of the animal to give you a sense of what it looks like. This drawing is also on my Deviantart gallery. One thing I have is that the tooth on the left feels to me more crocodilian like in appearance.
  8. I recently bought a Spinosaurus tooth from a fossil shop on the Rocky Moutains. I noticed this little ridge on both sides of the tooth. I looked at some pictures on the internet and im inclined to beileve that its from the premaxilla. Supposedly the teeth from the premaxilla are pointed with sharp edges on both sides. Could this tooth be one of those? Note that there is feeding wear on the tooth.

    Hola amigos, estoy interesado en comprar algunas garras de dinosaurios de Kem kem.

Translation Hello friends, I'm interested in buying some dinosaur claws from Kem kem.

  10. My dinosaur fossils

    Hello friends. I am new to this forum and I would like to show you my teeth and dinosaur claw so you can help me identify them, tell me if they are repaired and tell me what their value is. I hope you like them.
  11. Vertebrea from the kemkem formation

    A unidentified vertebrea from the kemkem formation in morocco, the vertebrea is about 2,8cm (1,1 inch) in lenght. I hope someone can tell me more about the vertebrea!! thanks already!!!
  12. So i have this small vertebra, that may be too difficult to id, but thought it is worth posting in case another member has seen a similar vertebra from the Kem Kem. It is slightly over 4 cm in length. Anyone have an idea what it could be from? Thanks.
  13. Croc Jaw

    I bought this interesting jaw which the seller said is a section of the upper croc jaw. He said it could be Elosuchus. What do you think? This is from the kemkem beds. I've lowed the size of the images so I can upload more.
  14. Pterosaur teeth

    Hi guys, The 4 teeth below are sold to me as Siroccopteryx moroccensis but I know species ID from Kem Kem material is really hard. The left and right tooth are most definitely pterosaur sp tooth but are the two in the middle pterosaur tooth as well? (curved/ straight)
  15. Hello, Saw this posted the other day and its a bad fake, buyers beware.
  16. Hey Everyone, I know these get posted regularly but I'm hoping to get some advice on a Spinosaurus claw I purchased. Its a little beat up but a decent price and would be a first hand claw for me. Cons: The light color I know is usually associated with bone thats been carved, its 6 inches and not a bad price which Troodon will say are two large red flags. Pros: The tip fell off in shipping and I can say it is hollow inside, I THINK the grain of the bone follows the curve of the claw. I'm curious to hear what the forum thinks.
  17. Unkown mammal jaw from kemkem

    This is a 4cm long unknown jaw from the kemkem formation of Morocco.
  18. I found this leg bone for sale on the internet? But is it a real raptor leg bone? Seems way to small for me and thought maybe it is pterosaur or bird?
  19. Hi all! Here I share with you a couple of jewels that I discovered a few months ago working on the yellow sandstones of the basal levels of the Ifezouane Formation (Upper Cretaceous Cenomanian of South of Morocco). The truth is that it was a huge surprise !. These are two scapulae, right and left of the same individual. But individual of what? I was astonished to recognize the absolute rarity of its characteristics. It has a very developed proximal epiphysis and with great articulation surface. Distal area is beautifully ornate! The autapomorphies are really rare !. It had been a long time since I had encountered something similar! Now I have begun to look for bibliography on similar remains to begin the first comparisons, but it is being complicated task .... I also enclosed a photo of the level at which I dug it !, fine-grained sandstones lenticularly interleaved (like patches) within gray marls. Any opinions? Thanks!
  20. Hello everyone! Today I'm fighting with this special piece !. I have been doing a lot of comparisons with other similar remains, but unfortunately there is very little published. It comes from the Cenomanian stage, of the Cretaceous region of KemKem (South of Morocco). Concretely of the red sandstones of the Aoufous Formation. Of the basal levels, really difficult to differentiate from the Ifezouane Formation (with much more sandy nature than the clays of the Aoufous Formation). I forgot the scale at pictures! Sorry! It measures long: 32mm = 1.25 Inch It looks a lot like pterosaur cervical vertebrae. It has some very special characteristics! I would like anyone who wishes to contribute with their opinion. Help is always welcome!
  21. kemkem croc teeth?

    Hi guys, I just bought a few small "Spinosaurus" teeth but I believe these three are croc. The blade of the tooth is not on the same plane of the curve. Any idea of the critter?
