  1. Fossil Mosasaur Teeth.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Fossil Mosasaur Teeth Khourigba, Morocco TIME PERIOD: Late Cretaceous (~70 Million Years ago) Data: First and most importantly, mosasaurs are not dinosaurs. Mosasaurs (from Latin Mosa meaning the 'Meuse river', and Greek sauros meaning 'lizard') are an extinct group of large marine reptiles. Their first fossil remains were discovered in a limestone quarry at Maastricht on the Meuse in 1764. Mosasaurs probably evolved from an extinct group of aquatic lizards known as aigialosaurs in the Early Cretaceous. During the last 20 million years of the Cretaceous period (Turonian-Maastrichtian ages), with the extinction of the ichthyosaurs and pliosaurs, mosasaurs became the dominant marine predators. They became extinct as a result of the K-Pg event at the end of the Cretaceous period, about 66 million years ago. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: Squamata Family: †Mosasauridae
  2. Trade-Europe

    Hi! I would like to exchange these fossils for Miocene material or Mesozoic/Cenozoic echinoids/corals. Unfortunately, I can only trade with european members. 1-Mosasaur teeth;spinosaur tooth;otodus obliquus tooth (if you need more info, please pm me).
  3. NSR Texas Mosasaur Teeth

    Mosasaur teeth. All personal finds. North Sulphur River Texas.
  4. What do you guys think about these? Listed as Mosasaurus hoffmanni from a European dealer (Theo) that I've purchased from before and seems to have a good reputation. Seems as though Mosasaur fossils are one of the most commonly and easily forged fossils so i just want to make sure before I purchase them! Size is listed as 5.4cm, 4.6cm, 4.8cm respectively. These are the only pictures I have of three separate teeth:
  5. Mosasaur Id

    Is it possible to identify the species of mosasaur by the teeth alone? I have several that I've found over the years that I want to segregate and display by species but there's just not a lot of info on the net that helps when discussing solitary teeth. I've narrowed the four most common species found in Alabama to Tylosaurus, Platecarpus, Clidastes, and of course Globidens. This basically leaves me with three choices for Id-ing these teeth after I cross out Globidens. A few of these are repost teeth but hopefully you all will let me slide this one time! Thanks in advance for any help/comments! The first two teeth are my largest and are unlike any others in my collection. One has smooth enamel while the other is faceted. The first tooth is round in cross section, it's 1-15/16" long and 1-1/8" wide. The 2nd tooth is oval in cross section, it's 2" long and 1" wide. The first four pictures are of the first tooth, while the last four are of the second tooth!

    From the album Reptiles & Marine Reptiles collection

    Collection of Rooted Mosasaur Teeth (Prognathodon) on display stands
  9. I am aiming to collect various genus of mosasaur to add to my collection and have been gathering several small specimens from various places that look to be from different genus and have tried to ID them with my limited knowledge (I am sure I probably got a lot of these wrongs, so anyone who could confirm the ID of these teeth would be greatly appreciated!) anyhow here are my collection so far, they are all from Morocco, presumably all from Khouribga : Picture 1: Looks to be Proganathodon (or mostly anyway...) Picture 2: Looks to be Proganathodon also (I think...) Picture 3: Platecarpus (the striations seem to confirm this, but I can't be 100% sure) Picture 4: Beaugei (I am assuming from the conical curvy contour that I have seen online that have been ID'd as such) Picture 5: Possibly a Beaugei? (have seen some teeth ID's as Beaugei that seems to show the bladed with ridged shaped also, so I am taking a shot in the dark here also...) Picture 6: Anceps (again, based from online search of pictures and tried to compare with what I have..) Picture 7: Pathological Mosasaur Tooth? - never seen one before, so I am sure if such things exist, but this one looks a little strange in terms of its shape, can't be sure if its a bad fix or bad attempt at compositing but the specimen is so small and of little value so I could see no reason to even try to composite it. These ones are my larger teeth 2 of them with roots, presumably all are Prognathodon: Specimen u: Specimen V: Specimen W: Specimen X Anyway, hope u enjoy watching and hopefully any one with more expertise than me would be able to help confirm the IDs of these teeth. I would be very happy even if I get just half of them right - Mosasaur teeth especially the small ones are just so hard to ID and notice their key defining features, with so little visual encyclopedic materials going on around online.
