  1. Carcharodontosaurid or other theropod?

    I bought this tooth 5-6 weeks ago, as a carcharodontosaurid tooth. Very nice tooth, but, i think that the tooth is very flat for carcharodontosaurid. I don't have photos with the cross section, but try to imagine a tooth 1.94 inch long that is only 6-7 mm thick.
  2. Chinanisaurus barbarcus tooth?

    Hello! I see this tooth. It is from the Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco, North Africa. I know the Chinanisaurus it’s a very rare Dino. The id it’s correct? Thank you!
  3. Odd Morroccan Trilobite Species?

    I found this trilobite online labelled only as 'asaphus'. I certainly don't think I'll buy it, however, I don't believe it's a species I'm familiar with and I'm always interested in furthering my knowledge. I thought I'd put it out to you guys to see if anyone knows what this is.
  4. Khourigbha teeth :)

    1.cretolamna appendiculata? 2.isurolamna inflata? 3? 4 the curved double cusps one this look really cool don’t know what it is though 5 might be too early for this but jaekelotodus trigonalis ? 7 i couldn’t quite capture it but the root is really weird it has two overhangs near the cusps
  5. I had just bought this shark tooth online and was looking at some otodus shark tooth real or fake posts when i realized the root of this tooth is covered with sediments or maybe plaster?Can anyone help me take a look and see if its composited?
  6. Moroccan trilo

    Hi guys not sure what this is all info I have is Devonian morocco
  7. Shark teeth from Morroco

    Hey there! So I have these fossil teeth from Morroco Eocene, (Khourighba, to be precise), and the one that handed them to me said they are Eocene in age. However, I think they look like Hastalis, an species from the Neogene. Can you please help me out? Thanks in advance!
  8. This large mosasaur tooth was imported from Morroco to China. It's pretty big but I found the root a bit strange, the root looks like it's carved from the matrix, is the tooth/root real?
  9. Trilobite ID request/verification

    Hello folks. I purchased this trilobite with the following description: "Split nodule, Asaphellus? Moroccan Trilobite. Devonian era". I prepped it and am wondering if the description was incorrect. My research leads me to it being Ectillaenus hispanicus, order Corynexochida, Ordovician, Dra Valley, Morocco. What say ye?
  10. Fossil ID Help

    Hey everyone, I received some more fossils from my friend and I was wondering if anybody could help me ID them. The man who originally obtained them passed away years ago and these were apart of his collection. Thanks, Sidney Huskey
  11. I just want to share some photos of a Moroccan Andalusian Trilobite I purchased about ten years ago. It's kinda large with the actual Trilobite measuring 9.5 x 7.5 inches on the matrix. I knew before I purchased it there had been restoration work and painting applied. I had always wanted one of these large trilobites to add to my collection but was skeptical because of the many fakes on the market. So, I looked for quite a while until I decided to purchase this one. I used the "common sense" approach that if it looked reworked/faked - it most likely is. I couldn't find what I determined to be an original complete sample on the market. So, I decided to purchase what appeared to be the most complete (to me). I enlarged the photos so I could see the extent of the restoration work and how much of the original trilobite remained. I estimated about 60-75% of this trilobite looked original and wanted to see if I was correct, so I purchased it (photo#1). When it arrived I inspected it and removed all of the orange paint, some of the underlying brown cephalon paint (difficult to remove) and much of what looked to be plaster/filler (photo#2). This gave me an idea of how much of the original trilobite remained, which appeared to be about 50-65%. I detailed the remaining filler and applied several coats of wax to bring out the natural color of the trilobite (remaining photos). I was not disappointed with my purchase because my expectations where set very low, but I was pleased with the results. If you look closely at the trilobite to see what looks natural and what looks restored/fake before you purchase one of these, you can find relatively complete examples (50-60%) on the market that will clean up nicely for display. A collector can tell what's not original with a close inspection. But, if you want one (for a reasonable price) to fill a spot in your collection and for display...…….
  12. Are there any papers/articles on Enchodus being in the Kem Kem formation? Also does anyone have any specimens they'd like to show off here because I read here that some people have specimens of it, and it just hasn't been described.
  13. Could you please take a look of this big Spinosaurus tooth from Morocco and tell me if it is genuine? It measures 16x3x2.6cm and weighes 120g. Thanks.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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 ?
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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?
