  1. This is a Mosasaur Jaw for sale on an auction site, and these are the only photos provided. Does it look authentic?
  2. Hello, can someone take a look at these and let me know if they are ok? A pair of Mosasaur jaws I quite like. 1st is a Globidens -- from Phosphate Beds. 5.12 inches. Seller says that the tooth is glued, but was found with the jaw. 2nd is Prognathodon -- says it has been glued and has some small fractures filled. Also from Phosphate beds. Many thanks anyone who can help!
  3. Hot Texas Creek Hunt!

    I hunted a remote stretch in Northeast Texas and found a nice variety of items. The vert is from a good size mosasaur. The sawfish teeth always seem to be broken. I found some small shark teeth and a piece of cretaceous turtle shell. The bottles are from the 1930's and 1940's. I really like the Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic bottle. I posted a little info on the old bottles. We saw at least twenty wild hogs in one pack crossing the creek and one giant solo wild boar.
  4. Opinions please as to the "original" state of this piece. The seller touts "as found." I have provided the largest image available. Please comment.
  5. Mosasaur tooth? - Fossil ID help

    Hi. Does anyone know what this is? I bought it as part of a wholesale lot of Moroccan mosasaur teeth. I'm guessing that it is Maastrichtian in age and from Oued Zem, Morocco. Thanks for any help.
  6. I kayaked for five miles on a day with a heat index of 108 degs and found some killer stuff. The Paleo Dalton point made my day. Rare to find mosasaur in this creek but I still managed to find a few verts. The big nautilus was beat up but looks good in my rock garden. The old bottle is a duraglas bottle from 1953.
  7. Hello, a few more Mosasaur jaw pieces that I am interested in. I can't say no to a Mosasaur. It's my fav marine reptile and one of my favorite extinct beasts. 1 -- Eremiasaurus -- from Ouled Abdoun Basin. 2 - Halisaurus -- Ouled Abdoun Basin -- This is my fav of the three. 3 - Prognathodon - Ouled Abdoun Basin. This one looks like the tooth has been repaired? I can't see anything signs that have cropped up on a few past jaws I've posted --- so hopefully, these three are all good and I can pop a bid in for the trio. Thanks for the help, as always.
  8. Mosasaur teeth?

    Hello all i believe these are both mosasaur teeth but wanted confirmation by folks with much more knowledge. The bigger of the two is 7/8 inches long thank you for your help
  9. Being sold as part of the bottom jaw of a Mosasaur--no species mentioned. From Khourigba, Morocco. 5CM high x 10cm long x 6 cm wide. To me, the jaw section seems legit bone with the photo showing the bone structure and the shattered roots of teeth, but is the whole tooth added or is it actually part of it? Thanks very much.
  10. Mosasaur vert --Morocco

    I don't have a Mosasaur vert, so hope this is accurate. Possible Prognathodon. Is Mosasaur accurate, or a chunky plesiosaur or croc? Any help appreciated.
  11. I know these are often composited, but if anyone can have a look, see how these are, that wpuld be great. I intend to get 1 globidens and one Mosasaurus Anceps. Ancepz I will put on post 2 1 - 15cm long from Benguerir 2 - 12 cm long --the different shading at the root, is that a sign the teeth are added? 3 - 10.5 cm
  12. Greens Mill Run

    Hi all, I am taking the family on a road trip in July, and was hoping to make a fossil hunting stop along the way. I noticed a lot of posts about GMR, and read some info elsewhere online. Are there any areas from the access points (Elm St. or Spring Green parks) that are elementary-school-age child friendly (ie: shallow water, banks/bars that can be easily accessed). Most info I found says to expect hip-wader depth and swift water. Any info from locals would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Here is another jaw. It is offered as Halisaurus and is reportedly from Oued Zem of Morocco. It is 10.2" in length. Jaws are a common inquiry here and several members are frequently kind enough to give their experienced opinion of the posted fossils. I would find it interesting and perhaps instructive to the general Forum; if experienced respondents would provide as much detail as they can as to how they formulate their opinion (e.g. common responses such as "teeth may be added," "matrix is not original, etc.") The question I am posing is how are these opinions reached? What clues are utilized? The following photos are the sellers. I realize that any conclusions reached in this section of the Forum are impacted by the quality and completeness of the provided images. Please respond to this fossil with as much "detective" detail as you care to provide. Thanks.
  14. Northeast Texas

    I did a six mile kayak trip in Northeast Texas. I found a little bit of everything.
  15. Possible mosasaur tooth

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if you could identify this for me. it seems to have enamel on it, my guess would be a mosasaur tooth. tia.
  16. Mosasaur or Thoracosaurus

    Hello all, Recently my girlfriend and I went up to Ramanessin in New Jersey for a fossil hunt. After a while I came across this tooth! Upon trying to identify it I couldn't exactly figure out whether it was a crocodile (Thoracosaurus) or a mosasaur from the area. The tooth is more ovular in cross section. If more pictures are needed I can send them. Im leaning more towards Thoracosaurus. Thanks!
  17. Labelled as a Mosasaur skull, from Morocco. I suspect it's more partial skull or skull sections rather than the entirety (but still pretty nice) But, anyone able to take a look and give your thoughts on if it looks legit? It'd make a jolly nice centerpiece to my Kem Kem display. If this gets the go ahead as being real, I will order it and a few other bits from the same seller tonight. Quite small, so either a juvenile or a smaller species of Mosasaur? It's the small size that's making me question it. Picture 1 -- the eye socket and other hole match other Mosasaur skulls, so I'm correct that that's the upper skull section? Picture 4 -- this looks like it has teeth sockets? So a jaw. Picture 6 -- Is the longish, segmented bone a row of verts? From Mosasaur or something else in the matrix? If someone could take a look, that would be awesome. Thanks
  18. Hi I would like to ask the authenticity of this Mosasaur Limb Bone? Whole size is 15". Thank you!
