  1. Ancient Moroccan Shark

    From Morocco World News. https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2020/11/326708/ferromirum-oukherbouchi-ancient-moroccan-shark-leads-to-new-discovery/
  2. Hello everybody. I get some interesting Stuff from El Mers (Boulmane) and Ksar Metlili (Talsint) I am looking for some information and publicacions about these 2 formation... I only find few old publications... I hope you can help me... Thank you so much!
  3. Hi everybody! Last month i saw this tooth on sale and it was love at first sight But from the beginning i understood that what it was and how it be presented are not on the same page... Luckily i know the seller pretty well and we trust each other...so i asked info before make the purchase...He told me that his provider (directly from Morocco) told him that the tooth was a Dyrosaurus phosphaticus but that he was not confident about the ID...the moroccan provider told to my friend/seller that was the first time that he saw a totth like that and its first idea of ID was D.phosphaticus. So provider was not sure, the seller just report the same ID given by the provider...and after hearing this story, i was even more convinced that i was on the good path...this is NOT a D.phosphaticus tooth...but for me, it was not a crocodilian tooth at all. Then i started to wondering what could it be...and i have reached two possibilities: 1) Spinosauridae: like Baryonyx/Suchosaurus 2) Pliosauridae: like Liopleuridon or Simolestes The specific features of the tooth (well conserved on labial side, damaged on lingual side, full carinae, intact root) are: - 2 marked, smooth carinae - 9 labial ridges - less evident lingual ridges - smooth enamel Other info: Origin: Khourigba - Morocco Age: Maastrichtian - Upper Cretaceous (doubtful) Lenght: 5.5cm / 2.16 inches What do you think about it? Someone can recognize it? Let me know and thanks to everybody!
  4. Hi, Wanted to ask if these two wing bones on matrix are Pterosaur if anyone can help confirm? It is from the Ouled Abdoun Basin in Morocco (I don't know if it is from the Maastrichtian deposits) and I am a bit unsure if they are Pterosaur or bird. One bone is 33cm in length & the other larger one is 43cm in length. If they are Pterosaur, do they look like it could be from an Azhdarchid Pterosaur due to the size? Thanks.
  5. Hi everybody! Today i want to kindly ask you help for the correct ID of this trilobite. My choice is Morocops ovatus but obviously i prefer to listen the ideas of experts (@piranha @Kane @Tidgy's Dad and more). I'm thankful to everyone who want to participate at the topic Here are the info: Origin: Jbel Zguilma (Foum Zguid), near Alnif, Morocco Age: Emsian, Devonian Lenght: 5.5 cm / 2.16 inches The trilobite is not in my hands, the photos are from the seller. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!
  6. I see that the genus Sigilmassasaurus have been deleted from many paleontology lists about the Kem Kem group fauna. Is Sigilmassasaurus a species of the genus Spinosaurus? Sigilmassasaurus and Spinosaurus aegyptiacus is the same species?
  7. Mosasaur Jaw

    Hello everyone! I just acquired this piece but the only thing I know is that it's a mosasaur from morocco and it shows the lower jaw and the pterigoid teeth from the upper jaw. Can any mosasaur experts here help me identify the species? I'm thinking of prognathodon maybe?. Also as far as I know it's not fake or composite but would be great if you could confirm it. Thank you very much for your help, very appreciated! Greetings from Spain.
  8. 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.
  9. Spino claw with X-ray? Pure composite? Any other thoughts?
  10. The first Hadrosauridae from the Maastrichtian of Morocco is described in this paper. Pretty cool, its a lambeosaurine called Ajnabia odysseus. From Ouled Abdoun Basin. Its also the first named hadrosaur from Africa. Hopefully will see some teeth on the market. Sorry its Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303657 See below for additional images
  11. Moroccan Shark tooth ID

    This tooth was included in a lot of Moroccan teeth I bought for giveaways awhile back. I have never been able to ID it. I thought Otodus for awhile but I am not sure about that. I am not really familiar Parotodus teeth but I did find a couple on line that looked a bit like mine. I think it is a possible ID but I really do not know. It is 3/4” and I have no specific location besides Morocco. It was a mixed bag that contained Cretaceous, Paleocene and Eocene teeth. Any suggestions?
  12. This post series will attempt to illustrate a minor prep project of a Moroccan mosasaur fossil. It is hoped it will encourage others to attempt a similar project, using simple tools. Thanks to Forum members @DPS Ammonite and @LordTrilobite for their helpful pre-acquisition comments. Special thanks to @jnoun11 for his ID verification of the piece and clarification of the fossil's precise place of origin. The Moroccan seller listed the fossil simply as "Mosasaur, 9 cm X 6.5 cm, Cretaceous, Khouribga, Morocco" Here is a photo from the seller. Note the large coprolite resting beneath the rearmost tooth. Unfortunately and not unexpectedly, the piece arrived damaged. At first glance it did not appear too severe. However close inspection revealed cracks in the matrix that ran to and beneath the two rear teeth. As an interesting aside, the break in the coprolite revealed an internal color pattern. To be continued.....
  13. Hello, I really just wanted to get some opinions on this fossil I saw online. It's already been sold but it was going for a good price! Is it real? Dimensions were listed as 5.6" tall, found in Morocco. It's from a dealer that seems legitimate but I can't help but be skeptical because of the price! So sorry, I'm very new to the fossil community. Thank you for your time.
  14. 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!
  15. Rare fossil from Erfoud. Dinosaur bone?

    Hi! I see this strange fossil from Erfoud, Morocco. Any idea? Dinosaur bone? Thank you so much.
  16. Abelisaurid tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Beware, these are commonly sold as "raptor" or "deltadromeus" teeth.
  17. France Returns Fossils to Morocco

    From Morocco World News : https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2020/10/322754/france-returns-25500-rare-artifacts-fossils-to-morocco/
  18. Hi! I can get this incredible and rare tooth. It is from the Atlas Mountains, Morocco so it’s a Jurassic tooth. Any idea about posible ID? Thank you so much!
  19. This is a large Spinosaur tooth. It has obvious repairs, and some restoration horizontally along the middle of the tooth. However, I'm wondering if it looks composite. The claim is that it isn't composite, but I'm suspicious.
  20. Hi everybody! Today i wanna show you one of my dearest ammonites...Choffaticeras segne! Making a search by keywords in TFF, i found only three results for this species...so i decided to enlarge the number! Now i present you my Choffaticeras segne: it comes from Goulmima in Morocco, belongs to Turonian (Upper/Late Cretaceous), it is 19cm in height and 1.461kg in weight. This specimen has been polished in both sides, obviously. It's very decorative and it makes its good looking part in my living room. I love its external sutures, how do you call this kind of suture in english? Please, let me know! For who loves taxonomy and scientific classification (like me), i leave you a little pattern that i made. Thanks for "watching" Choffaticeras segne Dominio: Eukaryota Regno: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Classe: Cephalopoda Sottoclasse: Ammonoidea Ordine: Ammonitida Sottordine: Ammonitina Superfamiglia: Acanthoceratoidea Famiglia: Pseudotissotiidae Sottofamiglia: Pseudotissotiinae Genere: Choffaticeras Sottogenere: Choffaticeras (Choffaticeras) Specie: Choffaticeras (Choffaticeras) segne
  21. 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?
  22. Mosasaur jaw

    Hello everybody, i received this mosasaur jaw (a dentary) from morocco, i don’t have any information on. The teeth are missing but i count 14 alveoli. According to the mosasaur thread of Jnoun 11, i think it’s maybe Mosasaurus beaugei or hoffmanni but i’m not sure for the identification, someone can help me to put a specie on this enigmatic dentary ?
  23. Hey guys, Saw this very nice looking trilobite for sale at a reasonable price, so I’m thinking of buying it. However I’m curious to know whether or not the specimen may be fake/retouched/in any way artificially handled. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance! Max Declivolithus Trilobite Ordovician Period Alnif, Morocco
  24. Hey everyone! I recently found these items which are claimed to belong to Chthonosuchus lethei. However after some Googling, I found that this species doesn’t appear to exist outside of this dinosaur handbook. If possible, could you guys please help me identify what these species these specimens might belong to? There is a tooth, vert and what is said to be a juvenile jaw section. These are claimed to be from the Kem-Kem bed of Morocco. Many thanks. The set, with info card: Tooth: Vert: Jaw section:
