  1. Partial right humerus (upper arm) of an undiscribed Dromaeosaurid. The size is very similar to that of Bambiraptor. This animal was possibly just over a meter long.
  2. Can someone identify this tooth?
  3. Good morning to everyone! Please, is this Spinosaurus tooth 100% authentic or is it just mounted with several teeth? Every opinion is welcome! Thank you!
  4. Hi all, I've this nice Moroccan trilobite. The seller did not know what genus or species it was. I have an inkling that it is Scabriscutellum, though could be wrong. Can the genus or species be pinpointed? Thank you! Jojo
  5. I bought a number of cool little Kem Kem fossils recently. There's a number of quite interesing ones in there. One of them turned out to be pretty special. As far as I know Dromaeosaurid material is pretty rare in the Kem Kem beds. But this seems to be the upper part of a right humerus of a raptor. Other Theropods are generally pretty different and those of birds while more similar also don't match. the bone is obviously hollow but the bone wall is still fairly substantial, which makes me think its Dromaeosaur instead of bird. The bone is also almost identical in shape and size to the humerus of the small Dromaeosaurid Bambiraptor. Though mine is obviously not as complete, but still very nicely preserved in 3D. I feel confident enough to call this raptor that I wanted to share this with you guys. Bambiraptor humerus. Needless to say, I'm really happy with this piece.
  6. A tooth of a Sauropod.
  7. I purchased this Spinosaurus Moroccanus tooth off eBay and I wanted to see if it is authentic. Here are the measurements: Length: 1.50" Width: 0.33" Depth: 0.33" Here are my questions. First, is this tooth authentic? Secondly, given the size, is it a baby dino tooth? What's with the colorful blotches on the top middle of the tooth? Does this bone have any roots on it or is the whole bone the tooth? Sorry, I don't know much about dino teeth and I hope some of you can help me. Thanks for your time....I really appreciate it =)
  8. Hey forum, i'd like to share my new arrival I wanted a large prepped fossil to add to my collection so i was very happy when it came in the mail today. 8.25 inches, 3.3kg This ammonite has had some restoration of the inner whorls but still looks great i think. It's from Agadir, Morocco Here are some pictures
  9. Hello good night for everyone! Recently a seller from Morocco came to me to try to sell me this bone, which he calls "undetermined tortoise bone". I did not say anything to him, but I suspect he's a velociraptor Ilium bone. What do you think?
  10. A friend in merzouga was showing minerals and I came across this one that looks to me to be a skin impression any ideas would be grateful matt
  11. Hi all. I am currently looking for a genuine Basilosaurus tooth. Problem is, the market is too heavily saturated with other Archaeocetes like Dorudon or Zygorhiza. As far as I understand, if a tooth comes from Western Sahara of Morocco, and is over 10cm in length including root, there's a chance it could be cf. Basilosaurus isis. Here I have several candidates. Tooth A - 6 inches in length Tooth B - 5.5 inches in length Tooth C and D - 6 inches along the curve Is there any way I can positively ID out a Basilosaurus tooth? Do any of these 4 teeth look like one?
  12. So the other day I visited a local tiny shop that sells minerals and fossils, and snagged a Mosasaur tooth from Khouribga Morocco. The label only said 'Mosasaur tooth, Khouribga, Morocco.' Naturally, as the curious person that I am, Im trying to find the species of the owner. After I researched a bit I narrowed down the species to those found in Morocco, yet I had trouble finding one with similar teeth. Globidens and Carinodens were quickly out of the question, since the teeth are rounded and kinda look like mushrooms to some extent, very unlike mine. Yet practically all the teeth I saw for these other Morocco Mosasaurs had slightly hooked teeth that looked thick and heavy, While mine is practically vertical, with almost no curve to it, small and light. Anyone know any Mosasaur species with teeth like this found in Khouribga Morocco..? The measurement of the tooth without the root is 1.4 inches long. The tooth has a diameter around barely over 1 centimeter. Here are species found in Morocco that I had narrowed down to, minus the Globidens and the Carinodens included- Eremiasaurus, Prognathodon-Anceps, Solyvai, Curii, Mosasaurus Baugei, Tethysaurus, Platecarpus, Halisaurus, and Goronyosaurus. ~If you need another angle of the tooth feel free to ask~
  13. Good morning to everyone. :-) Could some bones of this lot be Pterosaur's wing? Any tips on positioning them in the wing?
  14. Good morning to everyone! I bought this large lot with Pterosaur fossils. Everything Real?
  15. Four specimens presented for discussion. I studied several possibilities and, with a huge risk of error on this tricky ones, I present my hypotheses till now. By now just for the genera, of course. 1st and 2nd pics - Kingaspidoides sp. ? 3th and 4th pics - Kingaspidoides sp. ? 5th and 6th pics - Ornamentaspis sp. ? 7th and 8th pics - Latikingaspis sp. ? (a risky call and Geyer, 1990 don't help as all plates with this genus have just partial cranidia). I found just one photo browsing the web to compare (last attachment). Thanks in advance for your opinions. Miguel
  16. Hello, Can someone help identify this Bivalve? It comes from the Gondwnaspis quarry, near mount Issimour, Morocco. I suppose then it is Devonian. This specimen has 3,4 cm. Thanks in advance, Miguel
  17. Hello again. I would like to know/confirm the ID's of these specimens. Best wishes to all the members of the Forum. Miguel a) Hamatolenus vicenti?
  18. a) Agerina ? If yes, whats the Fezouata species?
  19. Hello. Can this be an Ectillaenus? If yes, wich species?
  20. Mucronaspis sp. or Mucronaspis zagoraensis? Thanks in advance Miguel
  21. A mollusc Sinuites plus a free cheek of a trilobite. Any thoughts about the trilobite in question? Thanks in advance, Miguel
  22. Hello my friends, I am showing my new purchase: it is defined by the seller as a generic raptor tooth which comes from Kem Kem Morocco. First of all is this identification right? Secondly is it possible to specify more in detail the species? Thank you very much Alessio
  23. Hello all, got this really interesting trilobite in from one of my sources that was unattributed. Any ideas? Also, is there a good source of information on how to attribute Moroccan trilobites? Thank you!
  24. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry of courses , mosasaurs belong to the level 3.and 4 different species are studied by scientists of the French Museum of Natural History in Paris . today the last record of different mosasaurs species is at list 17 and probably 20. (personal opinion ) listed like below : †Halisaurus. arambourgi .(Bardet, Pereda Suberbiola, Iarochène, Bouya & Amaghzaz, 2005) †Halisaurus.sp not described yet †Halisaurus walkeri .(Lingham-Solier, 1998) ( i used this name temporarily, until one studie about this mosasaur show-up ) †Prognathodon sp Dollo, 1889 †Prognathodon anceps ex leiodon anceps slender form massive form perhaps sexual dimorphism ( personal opinion ) †Prognathodon solvay Dollo, 1889 †prognathodon hudae kaddumi 2009 †Prognathodon. currii (Christiansen & Bonde, 2002) †Eremiasaurus heterodontus , gen. et sp. nov sp ( AR.
