    2.5 MYA Moroccan Macaque.

    https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2021/02/335798/discovery-of-2-5-million-year-old-macaque-fossil-in-morocco/ The macaques, commonly known as the Barbary Ape, though they are monkeys, still live in Morocco's cedar forests and can also be found in Gibraltar, the only monkeys in Europe, allegedly taken there by the Moors during their invasion of Spain in the eighth century. Indeed the name Gibraltar derives from 'Jebel Tariq' or 'Tariq's Mountain' where the Moroccan fleet first put ashore in 711. Azrou, Morocco : Jebel Tariq :

    New Mosasaur from Morocco

    Morocco keeps delivering cool new discoveries. A new small Mosasaur is described in the attached publication, its Xenodens calminechari from the upper Maastrichtian phosphates of Morocco. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667121000112 Teeth form a unique dental battery in which short, laterally compressed and hooked teeth formed a saw-like blade. @jnoun11 Has anyone seen teeth like these or have them in their collection?
  5. I have here a Spinosaurus tooth, 4" in length. It has the repair close to the base. I'd love to know if anyone can spot restorations. I don't see any. Thank you, Bellamy
  6. I posted this one alongside a few other teeth, but it didn't get as much traction as I hoped. It's the one I was most curious about, and extremely unusual to me, so I figured posting it individually would be helpful. This is a Moroccan crocodile tooth from Kem Kem. It is serrated, and dagger-shaped, 1.02" long and 0.32" wide. Out of those I have consulted, Troodon proposed Hamadasuchus, though yielded that the dagger-shape is not consistent with those he had seen with those: I've essentially used all of my leads over these few days. If anyone has a different theory, I would
  7. Is this trilobite real? How often have we seen this question? Since folks are often asking I thought I'd toss in this obvious fake that I got in a bulk rock buy years ago. I'm no pro but I couldn't even find any real parts of this thing. I'll point out what I see and others can add their ideas Here is overall from top Here is closer shot of the front showing a few big problems. 1: the crack running around the side of the trilobite shows where the fake bug is separating from the base. They take a chunk of matrix, carve out a hole then glue on a molded fake. Then gl

    Uzbekistan & Morocco Crocodile Teeth

    I have here two crocodile teeth from the Bissekty Formation of Uzbekistan, and one from Morocco. I'd appreciate any help identifying them. Uzbekistan I 1.28" long, 0.39" wide
  9. Have a look and comment please...
  10. I have here Carcharodontosaurus teeth from two sellers. No restorations are declared. However, I'm suspicious of both and would appreciate more opinions on them. Here's the first one, I believe the tip is restored. It's 3.78"
  11. Hello. I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the authenticity of this Dunkleosteus jaw. The jaw is coming from the Devonian of Morocco. It measures 12" long by 4" tall. The seller indicates that only the tip of the jaw was restored, but I suspect that the restoration may extend further. Thank you for your help. @Mioplosus_Lover24 Care to weigh in? Thanks.

    rare fossils Fezouata Morocco

    Two very rare Ordovician fossils from the Fezouata Formation of Morocco. Any ideas?
  13. 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

    Sarcosuchus sp?

    I have here two teeth identified as Sarcosuchus sp. from Kem Kem, Morocco. They don't look like any Sarcosuchus teeth I've seen. Many here are more knowledgeable than I am about crocodiles. Based on these views, can they be identified as such? These are two different teeth. The first one is 4.2 cm long and nearly 2 cm across the base. The latter is 7 cm and 2.5 cm across the base. Thank you, Bellamy
  15. Hello guys, so this specimen came up on the internet for sale. It is apparently a Aegirocassis benmoulai from the one and only Fezouata formation in the Draa Valley in Morocco. I am not trained with dealing with these types of specimens but what are the chances it is the real deal/thing??
  16. A new "T-Rex" tooth just showed up on our favorite site. It is not a Tyrannosaurus rex tooth however but a more common and far cheaper Carch tooth. We know this because of its more blade-like morphology, its slender profile, its shape, its smaller denticles and the sand on the base I already notice multiple bids on it and I have no doubt the price would escalate as many hopeful collectors would try their hands on getting a cheap T-Rex tooth for themselves. For anyone looking to buy a true T. rex tooth, there are several factors to take note of: 1) Thi

    Proximal part femur dino?

    Heyy, I have this part of a bone. It looks like the proximal half of a femur? It looks a bit to straight to be a femur of a crocodile, anyone agree? Does anyone know to look in what direction? Measurements: 80x29x21mm Kemkem beds Morocco. Gr Yasmin

    part vertebra croc?

    I have this piece, crocodile?, which I think is a part of a vertebra?. It looks like the are zygapophyses visable and I think the grove should be the neuralcanal. But I am not sure, con someone shine a light on it? Measurements: 70x60x36mm Thank you

    Moroccan longbone

    Heyy, The next 3 bones. For these ones I feel like there is an obvious explination. Buuut There is a tiny monkey in my head making music... Soo 2 I recognize as longbone one was named Radius crocodile or dinosaur. I think the 3th is a scapula? But with a fused coracoid? Maybe a pubis? Measurements of the longbone: Lengte: 24x6,4x3,7cm and radius(?): Lengte: 17,6x4,4x1,5cm

    Moroccan Crocodile Tooth

    I have a 1" dagger-shaped tooth from the Kem Kem. I bought it as a crocodile tooth. The way it's shaped I assumed it was a fish fang, but the enamel looks pretty much like a crocodile's. Here are the only photographs I have access to for the time; is it identifiable? Thank you, Bellamy

    Ifrane, Morocco.

    Hi, gang. Some of you may remember the Southern Morocco trip I took in February. One of the places visited was quite near to me, about 70 km, lovely Swiss style mountain town called Ifrane where I found some Middle Jurassic brachiopods and echinoids. See http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93193-ifrane-middle-atlas-morocco/&tab=comments#comment-1026671 A friend offered to drive me up there for the day so off we went I decided to check some outcrops on the other side of the road this time so went and had a peek.Sorry, no photos this time as wifey did

    Moroccan Tiger Shark Tooth

    I purchased this tooth from Dakhla Bay, Morocco. It's 1.1 cm long and appears to be Galeocerdo. It was advertised as Galeocerdo alabamensis. However, I can't find records of that species from Morocco, or outside of the United States for that matter. I know that Galeocerdo eaglesomi exists in Morocco. This doesn't look like one to me. Anyone know what it might be? Thank you, Bellamy
  23. We can know if a sauropod tooth from Morocco - Kem Kem beds is from rebbachisaurid or titanosaurid?
  24. Lately lots of teeth have been popping up being offered as theropod teeth from the Jurassic of Morocco. As these teeth become more available to the casual collector, it’s important to know what you are buying. However, @Down under fossil hunter and I have started to notice that some of the Jurassic teeth in fact looked a lot like Cretaceous Carchardontosaurid and Abelisaurid teeth seem in the Kem Kem beds. For example, 2 teeth: Wrinkling on the serrated edges appears to indicate a Cretaceous Carchardontosaurid tooth. However, both of these were offered as from the late J
