  1. I bought this fossil today at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I want to know the genus of trilobite and maybe the species. It looks like Phacops. It is in a defensive pose. In total from the glabella to the pygidium is 6 1/2 centimeters. Any help would be appreciated!!! Glabella Side view
  2. Hey guys this is my koneprussia that has spines on spines!

  4. Fossils reveal unseen 'footprint' maker, University of Aldelaide January 17, 2017 by Robyn Mills http://www.adelaide.edu.au/news/news90102.html https://phys.org/news/2017-01-fossils-reveal-unseen-footprint-maker.html The paper is: Gutiérrez-Marco, J.

  5. I have these two pieces that I can seem to id so I found this awesome forum and figure this is is the best place to start. So what information I do have is that this chucks of matrix came from Morocco and kind of look like gill bones? Please let me know what you think.
  6. The seller of this piece claims that the teeth are not composited onto the matrix, but, judging by this picture, I would say the roots aren't original. They lack texture and the one on the left in the close-up seems 'smudged' up onto the bone. I would imagine the block has original bone but most of the teeth added afterwards, but I may of course be wrong. Can someone more experienced please give their opinion? Either way, it looks like a great piece to me, if a bit out of my price range! Many thanks.
  7. Mosasaurus jaw fragments

    Jaw fragments of a mosasaur.
  8. I bought this fossil mosasaur tooth. It came from Morocco, from some phosphate deposits. The size is very small about 2 centimeters I'm wondering if this tooth was from a juvinile. I have heard that each mosasaur has it's own tooth morphology even in species who's teeth are very similar like Prognathodon and Mosasaurus. The tooth is very unusual from others I have. It is very curved. Photo of tooth Other side
  9. The jaw section and teeth are throwing me for a loop. This matrix chunk is from Morocco and I was wanting to id the jaw section and nothing I am looking through has comparable teeth. Please help.
  10. So this came to me in in pieces and it was been repaired and I still have no ideas or what it could be. All I know is thats is from morocco (unknown region), it looks to have "suckers" on the end of the piece which throws me. I have had the thought of a marine plant root of some kind. Thanks for the help!
  11. Some of you who've known me for awhile know I am on the hunt for a large 3 in+ plesiosaur tooth. I acquired one this month at last! This beauty here measures 3.75 inches exact in a straight line. He came in a large chunk of rock, so I had to chip off quite a bit of matrix, cutting myself slightly in the process from a hidden shark tooth. I opted to leave this matrix because I think it looks good, and I fear further breaking would break the tooth. He's a Zarafasaura oceanis from Sidi Daoui of Morocco, dated to 70.6 - 66 million years old (late Cretaceous).
  12. Over the past 2 to 2 1/2 years I have been assembling this collection of Cretaceous set. I was directly inspired by TFF user Andy, who made a set of the apex predators of the Cretaceous seas and waterways with many of the same species featured in this collection. I would like to give credit to him for this collection idea. Obviously I couldn't travel to Niger, Morocco, or even Kansas, travel is expensive and time is limited. I will plan to go to Kansas one day as my dream location, but for now, Ohio will do. While this isn't complete, I added fossils from some of my favorite prehistoric creatures. As a fossil hunter/collector, I find that marine reptile and fish teeth interest me the most. The species are as follows; Onchopristus numidus Tegana formation, Kem Kem Beds, Taouz, Morocco. acquired in the summer of 2016. This is the only piece of mine that has any repairs. In the future I'll search for one without repairs.
  13. I bought this fossils in the Houston Museum of Natural Science. They were label as Trilobita. They came from the Atlas mountains in Morocco. The age is Devonian. The top ones I consider them Acastoides sp. and the bottom ones as cf.Phacops? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

  16. Hi folks! I'm just getting started on fossil collecting, and have bought a few small things at rock shops. Just bought something online, and I was hoping to confirm it is what I understand it to be. To my beginner eye, I think I have a pretty good sized Mosasaur tooth (not sure what type) in one of those composite matrix setups. I'm leaning towards it having been stained or painted a little too to bring out the tooth. Not sure on that point though. Just one small spot on the matrix in front of the tooth point that glows in black light. Everything else has no glow. Here are some photos. Paid about $50 for this, no clue if that's way too much or not. I liked the look of it, and even if composite matrix they did a really nice job making it attractive for a shelf IMO. Thanks for your thoughts everyone!
  17. Squalicorax

    This fossil is around 70 million years old. It's 2.25 cm in height
  18. I went last week to visit this stunning city of Morocco,and of course I had a look in the fossils shops J At first an official shop,with something extremely rare,prices!but looks only fakes sorry(perhaps the Mamites was good)
  19. Hello forum members Do different stromatolites have classifications/individual Latin names? I can't seem to find much on the web. I've been given these stromatolites which came from Morocco and I'd like to label them. Thanks John
  20. Hey everyone .. during too busy X-mas days and NY plans ...fossils can't be too far away Would anyone have an ID of these two bones from the Tegana formation from morocco around Erfoud/Taouz, they would be Cenomanian in age... thanks in advance! d
  21. The second ammonite my husband bought me for christmas come from Morocco. That's the only indication i have about it. It is about 13 cm on 13 cm and i think it can be a Mammites nodosoides :

  23. There are two Thorectichthys species in Gara es Sbâa: The deep-bodied T. marocensis and the more slender T. rhadinus. Etymology: Generic name from the Greek "thorectes", masculine, meaning a warrior armed with a breast plate, in reference to the abdominal scutes of the fish, and "ichthys" meaning fish. Species name from the Greek “rhadinos” meaning slender, tapering or lithe, in reference to the body depth of this species being much less than in T. marocensis Lit.: Two new paraclupeid fishes (Clupeomorpha: Ellimmichthyiformes) from the Upper Cretaceous of Morocco.
