  1. WARNING! Fossil Exports from Morocco

    Well, i did hear a while ago that Morocco were thinking of becoming more serious on their 'cultural heritage' laws. I hope this is just an isolated case from the Spanish side and not the beginning of a trend. https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2020/01/291089/spanish-airport-moroccan-fossils/
  2. 3 new fossils

    Hi I just got these today and would like to show them. If you need more photos just ask. Thank you and enjoy!! Hadrosaur. indet carpel Horseshoe canyon formation, Drumheller valley, Alberta, Canada.
  3. Hi all, i want to buy that Cambropallas Telesto. It seems a good specimen, i can see rock cracks passing thru the trilo so is a good sign. But i'm not sure about the entire specimen, in particular in the black areas in the back. Seems that the "shell" have been eroded. What do you think? Thank you
  4. Moroccan echinoids

    I have these as Goniopygus menardi. These are from Morrocco. No stratigraphic info or specific location. Does that look correct? Scale in mm. I have these as Asterocidaris spines. Also from Morocco. Thanks for any help.
  5. Anomalocaris Morocco ?

    Can it be a part of an anomalocaris? Ordovician, Fezouata Formation. Morocco Fossil Length 17 cm (7 inches)
  6. Hey guys These are my first founding in a phosphate mine near to where i live in morocco. this is my first post and am new to the Jurassic world.
  7. My Oddball Kem Kem Theropod Teeth

    I know specimens from the Kem Kem are some of the most common things found on the market, but with so much undescribed material, it's a favourite location of mine for finding those fossils that are just a bit odd and often overlooked. So here are some of my theropod teeth from the locality to date, that don't quite fit the usual Spinosaurid & Carcharodontosaurid profiles: To start with, a theropod indet. tooth with a very unusual profile, and unique (for the locality) mesial carina that ends naturally above the midline.

  9. Trilobite ID help

    Hello all, I bought this trilobite for my uncle for Christmas. It didn't come with any identification information, but I assume it is from Morocco. I was wondering if anyone could help me determine its name and age. Thanks for any help.
  10. Greetings, I recently bought a fossil vertebra from a moroccan seller who claimed it was a Plesiosaurus vertebra, and through I did not believe him I made a deal with him and I got the fossil for a cheap price. My guess it that it belongs to an Otodus chark or an Enchodus fish, is a quite big vertebrae anyway... What do you think? Thank you very much in advance.
  11. Carcharodontosaurid foot claw?

    Hi, I saw this large 8.9cm (3.5 inch) Kem Kem claw for sale. It is labelled as a Carcharodontosaurus (or Carcharodontosaurid) foot claw. I wanted to ask if the identification looks likely - i don't believe it is Spinosaurid and not sure of other large theropods the claw could be from. I should also ask if it looks genuine - the seller states that there are a few breaks but no restoration done on it. Thank you.
  12. Kem Kem bones thread

    Hello everybody, this is all my new bones from morocco, i need many precision on it, if you could. I know they are few publication of Kem Kem but you coule maybe help me. Firstly, i have those two vert, i don’t have idea for the identification. The smallest is clearly a reconstruction, perhaps with a piece of rib.
  13. Serrated Spinosaurid Tooth - Kem Kem

    I've spoken to Troodon a little elsewhere on the forum regarding this serrated Spino tooth; my main question is regarding the root - can anyone verify whether the root looks to originally be from this tooth? It's obviously been reattached, but sand has been used to fill a gap between the crown & root, which makes me wonder a little. For anyone wanting wider details around this little oddball: • Length approx 48mm long (including the root) • Very slightly recurved • Mesial carina naturally terminates at the midline • Denticles appear to be 2/mm on both carinae • Veiny enamel texture • Extremely minor fluting on one side The Interesting Features: Mesial Margin: Distal Margin: Enamel Texture: Apologies for the godawful photos. (I definitely need to get a better microscope for this stuff!)
  14. Fossil Bone?

    Hi All, I'm wondering if you could help me identify this item? I think it's a fossil bone, but I just don't know. I found it lying on the surface where I was camped for the night by the Kem Kem beds. The reason we were camped was to visit the Spinosaurus dig site that was featured in the National Geographic Documentary, Bigger than T. Rex. I can provide the long and lat, for the exact location. The surface it was on was rock strewn, so it was a chance find amidst many rocks. About 8-10 metres from a dry stream edge, not an obvious exposure or deposit from running water. The item had no part of it buried. A link to the full resolution version of images is here, I'll leave the link active for 6 months. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AutS1HGsNzVXi-8IRNetXsI3rwZA4Q?e=C3cqMg My feeling is that if it is a bone, that it may be spinal, with the hole through it as a major conduit for a nerve, or possibly a blood vessel. But really I have no idea, and that's why I'm posting to gain your expertise! Many thanks for your time. Phil
  15. Trilobite ID

    Hey everyone, I just received this fossil from a friend and was wondering if anybody could help me properly ID it. Thanks!
  16. I present this here large asaphus trilobite, besides being repaired how much if composited/fake is this trilobite?
  17. Hematite Ammonites from Morocco

    The label supplied with these says they are from the Cretaceous, from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. They appear to be preserved with Hematite. The squares are 0.5"x0.5" (roughly 1.3cm²). If more pics are needed for an Id I'll get them for you.
  18. Kem Kem Leptostyrax macrorhiza

    One of only 6 known Leptostyrax from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Lower Upper-Cenomanian in age.
  19. Kem Kem Leptostyrax macrorhiza

    From the album Cretaceous Shark Teeth

    Very rare Leptostyrax from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Lower Upper-Cenomanian in age.
  20. Hello, I have purchased this interesting fossil tooth from Kem Kem Beds, but I don´t know about the ID, it looks like Spinosaur or fish, but I´m not sure. Can you help me with the ID? The tooth is 1.1 inch (2,8cm) in lenght. Best regards!
  21. Goulmima teeth identification?

    Hi, i asked previously about a couple of Pliosaur teeth which i now have, but there are these two other teeth from the Goulmima site in Morocco that look quite different and i was wondering if they could be Polycotylid teeth or from some other marine reptile. The first tooth is 6.2cm (2.44 inch) and the other tooth is 4.1cm (1.6 inch). Is it possible to narrow these teeth down when the enamel looks worn?. Thanks.
  22. An Echinoid from Morocco?

    These were in one of those sets of mixed fossils you can get. Must've first got them over 10 years ago. Anyway, since most of them were from Morocco I assume this echinoid is too, as it has a similar looking matrix to the others. All the label says is it's an Echinoid from the Cretaceous, but as some of the other labels in the set were clearly wrong it could be from another period. Its one of the last fossils from this set I've been unable to identify, so I'm hoping one of you guys has one or knows the genus and where it is indeed from.

    From the album Pisces

    Slant length 7cm. Paleocene Khouribga, Morocco
  24. A very interesting paper authored some notable paleontologists. I was able to see a copy of the pre-proof paper. It describes 2 new cervical vertebrae and also reviews published material that provided an interesting insite into the Abelisauroids of the Kem Kem. Abelisauroids include both Abelisauridae and Noasauridae families. To summarize some of the conclusions: 1) One of the cervicals FSAC-KK-5016 established the presence of a small-bodied noasaurid taxon with similarities to Masiakasaurus of Madagascar. Further discoveries of this noasaurid are necessary to determine if it resembles Masiakasaurus in other aspects of its anatomy, such as a piscivory adapted dentition. One small tooth (GZG.V.19999), described by Richter et al. (2013) as abelisaurid-like was noted as similar to the teeth of Masiakasaurus. If Deltadromeus proves to be a noasaurid, which the paper suggest, then there are at least two noasaurid taxa present in the Kem Kem assemblage. 2) The second cervical an axis vertebra FSAC-KK-5015 is referred to as a small basal Abelisauridae that is neither a Carnotaurinae nor Majungasaurinae. 3) In reference to Richters et al paper (2013) the authors concluded that multivariate analysis may not be suitable for distinguishing dromaeosaurids or abelisaurids, but added that the small sample size (3 teeth for the morphotype: NMB-1671-R; GZG.V.19997; GZG.V.19998) decreased the accuracy of the results. It is possible that the teeth referred to Dromaeosauridae by Richter et al. (2013) are also noasaurid in origin. 4) A review of previously published material was also conducted and the following statement was made "The abelisaurid Rugops from the Eckhar Formation of Niger is here confirmed to also be present in the Kem Kem beds. " very cool...

  25. Hi, There is this claw i have been looking at and i would like to know from the claw experts whether this looks genuine? The seller does state it has some fractures that have been glued and filled and the preservation plus the look of the overall shape leads me to believe that it is genuine. However most (or at least a decent amount of) large claws are probably fabricated to some extent and this claw is 10cm in length (4 inches). Part of the base of the claw looks to have a different colouration from one side so i don't if that is normal or not. Thanks in advance!
