  1. A bunch of Morrocan trilobites

    Hi there, guys. So, I recently bought a lot of trilobites from a Morrocan seller. I asked here in the forum for an ID and it turned out one of the trilobites came with wrong determination, so I'm adding pictures of the other specimens hoping you guys can help me get to genus at least. They were all sold as Phacops, but of course, the seller does not have knowledge enough to ID them, and neither do I (probably, even less, actually...). I'll add the pictures below for each specimen. First two pieces I believe it's Flexicalymene sp. Thanks in advance, Juliano
  2. Phacops from Morroco?

    Hi there folks, So, I bought this trilobite from a Morrocan seller and I would like to know the species if possible. It came tagged as Phacops redops, but I couldn't find much information on this species. Is it correct? Found in Atchana Issimour, Morroco.
  3. I recently bought this large trilobite fossil at a rock/fossil shop in Texas. After doing research I found that their are apparently Alot of fakes out there. The fossil itself has the same grainy mineral characteristics as the rock surrounding it when a flashlight is shined on it. The tiny sandy mineral deposits sparkle. I did a small bite test that an article I read suggested to do and it did not feel like resin. It was very gritty and the same texture as the rock that surrounds the fossil. Please help me if you can. Sorry it is only 1 picture. It wouldn't let me upload any more.
  4. Saw fish from Morroco?

    Hi there, What would that piece be? Received it in a lot labeled just as saw fish. Any guesses? Also, it looks like it's been glued or something, right? Thanks in advance, Juliano
  5. Hi there guys. Received these teeth as part of a big lot. These came labeled as Mosasaurus beaugei teeth from Morroco. Would that be right? Is it possible to get to species by just looking at the teeth? I have another one, a little bigger, labeled as Mosasaurus (Leiodon) anceps. How could I differentiate the species? Thanks in advance, Juliano
  6. Shark teeth ID

    Hi there folks, I recently received this lot as gift, but it came with no ID. Is it possible to get an ID from this pic? They are all from Morroco. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello people. This is my first time here. I have been collecting fossils for a while now, since I usually hunt them myself, I had never had any problem. Last weekend I bought this fossil in an exposition, I paid 10,00 euros. It doesn't look carved or too clean, but since I read that "The authentic ones have long been cleaned out", I got suspicious. What do u guys think? Is it real? (I also got a trilobite, I'm going to post it here later.) thank you in advance
  8. Carch tooth from phosphate beds ?

    Hello recently i saw this carch tooth but its was said to be form phosphate beds form whats i read chenanisaurus and a titanosaur fossils was found there but not carch whats are your opinions on this tooth would be a carch tooth ?
  9. Moroccan Platecarpus tooth?

    I once went to a rock shop in Utah a few months back and they had a wooden box with Moroccan mosasaur teeth in it. Most of them had no tip and kids were messin with the teeth causing more damage. I rescued this one and got the tip to and repaired it. However, I see a similarity of the tooth to one I saw in Kansas that belonged to Platecarpus. Could this tooth be a Platecarpus tooth from Morocco?
  10. I have been looking at this fossil to purchase for my collection and I am paranoid that, like many other Morrocan Mosasaur jaw fossils, this could have faked elements. I was wondering if anyone could spot anything wrong with this fossil.
  11. Real Mosasaur Specimen?

    Is this a real Globidens Aegyptiacus Mosasaur jaw specimen? As I am fully aware there are many fake Mosasaur jaws on the market where the bone is made from plaster and the matrix from composite sand. I was wondering if any body could confirm this for me?
  12. Mosasaurus Fossil ID

    Was curious of what was inside of the matrix that my mosasaurus tooth was in, I'm mostly curious on what the fossil on number 6, 7 & 8 is. I'm guessing that it is a root of a mosasaurus tooth?
  13. Kem Kem bone

    Last saturday i went to a fossil convention. there i bougth this bone. it's from Morroco, Kem Kem. @LordTrilobite already looked at it and he said it could be a pelvis fragment or a shoulder blade. I would like what you think about it its around 10 to 15 centimeters long
  14. Jawbone

    Whats could this jawbone could it belong too ? its from kem kem beds.
  15. For a long time I've always wanted to have one of these trilobites, but they are so commonly faked I get anxiety whenever I consider ever purchasing one which has put me off from them for so long. I know there are obvious fakes but some get very close to real and I have a hard time disconcerning, a little restoration isn't so bad to me if its small part and the majority is real. Below I'm going to post a few pictures of some recent ones that leave me scratching my head. God forbid if these end up being fakes even though I definitely suspect restorations for sure, anyone know where to come across a real one?
  16. I am told it is real and from Morroco but the inner part is carved. What do you guys think and how can you tell? Thanks. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IyQ0ukwPSXdnZAQzt3sYOu0q86jRPN8N/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YJYEcr9mWzeC0S-SpKWWHiBZbtIN8p-T/view?usp=drivesdk
  17. Morroco: What makes it special?

    Whenever I hear about places in the world that are the richest to hunt, I hear one word over and over again: "Morroco, Morroco, Morroco!" Whenever I search the internet for photos of quality specimens of any number of species at any number of ages, I see the same word over and over again: "Morroco, Morroco, Morroco!" So what is it about Morroco that makes the sheer quantity and quality of their specimens a thing?
  18. Possible raptor tooth?

    So.......I've recently gotten into fossil collecting. It's very addicting, I'll admit. Anyway, I recently bought a neat little Kem Kem tooth that was supposedly listed as a "dromaeosaur" or "raptor" tooth. It wasn't too expensive, and of a decent size and quality, so if by chance it wasn't some sort of raptor tooth, I wasn't going to cry about wasting money. I have no idea why, since ignorance is bliss, but I had a sudden urge to look up identifying raptor teeth and stumbled across this impressive site (thank you for existing!!!!). I am now quite certain that my Kem Kem "dromaeosaur" tooth is most likely from some abelisaurid species, which I'm totally fine with since I was planning on buying one anyway. I'll post pictures of it later, since I already own it and can (hopefully) have it identified to the most likely species at my leisure. However, I stumbled across this tooth on my search for elusive raptor teeth. The seller has surprisingly (and respectably) titled it as an unclassified tooth from the Kem Kem area. To my amateur eyes, it looks like it might possibly belong to a raptor? It is supposedly 0.6 inch long. These are the only pictures the seller has provided so far, hopefully they will work. It looks like the mesial serrations (hopefully I'm using that right! New words, yay!) look like they curve slightly to the lingual surface at the base, at least to me.... I roughly sized up a picture of a ruler with millimeters to the pictures of the tooth. There are roughly 4 serrations per millimeter on the mesial side, and 3 per millimeter on the distal. What do you think? Lingual surface is the first picture, labial is the second.
  19. Is this Spinosaurus tooth real or a replica? 5.5cm in length, from Morocco Also what are all the weird crusty bits on the side of the tooth?
  20. Drotops Megalomanicus

    Drotops Megalomanicus found it mislabeled and under priced at the mall today at a random booth, was a very unexpected pleasure measures somewhere around 5.3-5.4 inches, the condition is not to bad.
  21. Big echinoid

    Ok, what is this. I bought it about 20 years ago. Im sure its from Morroco and i think its some kind of Clipiaster? (spelling) Need some info so I can sell it. Dont want it. RB
  22. More kem kem teeth to ID

    These teeth were all bought together, I'm guessing they are labeled more or less correctly, but I want y'all to varify. First was labeled pterosaur, so I'm guessing sirroccopteryx? The next was labeled carcharodontosaurus, which I'm guessing is correct. Lastly a tooth labeled dromeosaur, and from what I can gather, these teeth are from an indeterminate taxon? I can take more pictures, just tell me the angle.
  23. Need help with some teeth

    Until joining this forum, I thought that the kem kem beds were clear cut and simple in terms of teeth, you have crocs, raptors, carcharodantosaurs, and spinosaurs. I was of course, incrediblely wrong. I have acquired a few teeth from various suppliers, and they are of the kem kem beds. I got these way before I joined the forum and I would like to us your collective skills to get the best IDs possible. This will probably be the first of two posts. first up is a small tooth, labeled deltadromeus agilis, a species of which no skeletal elements are known. after that are two teeth in a lot of bones apparently from a sulphur mine.
  24. Morrocan theropod tooth

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Bought online labeled Deltadromeus agilis.
  25. Moroccan bone fragments

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Four fragments that came with two other labeled theropod too the fragments. These are highly worn and poor in quality which makes me believe that it could be any bone from any thing. Bought online.
