  1. My main concern, is it composite? What can you tell from these pictures?
  2. Large NJ Cretaceous Bone

    Found this thick bone piece in a new jersey cretaceous creek and wonder if its possible to maybe id since one side has a distinct rough texture while the other is flatter and striated, I would guess either large turtle, mosasaur, or dinosaur. My friend joked its a theropod maxilary skull fragment, but we all know around here that material seems close to impossible to come across haha. Interested to hear any other thoughts.
  3. Hi dear forumers. Need you help. May be some of you have a proper experience in printing 3d models of fossils. The great task appeared in my path. I trying to make a paleontology museum in my town. Our family have a more than 20 years of experience in paleohunting an we dream about showing to people what a beautyful and unique ancient creatures have been living here, near our home. And we want to show how interestin is our sciense: paleontology. We have a thousands of fossils of all systems from middle jurassic series, all of cretaceous systems to miocene series, in 300km zone aroun our city. The pearl of our collection: fragment of lower mosasaurus jaw. But not everybody can imagine how great that sea monster was. And in my brain births an idea to print a full scale mosasaurus skull. So may be some of you have such experience and can help me with hints and solutions about this problem. May be you know a proper link. The links that i found in web aren`t free. I haven`t much money, and i scear about resolution of virtual model and quality of printing. Also may be some of you know where to dind a good resolution photo of masasaurus scull. Thanks everybody for help.
  4. Who was the former owner for this tooth?

    Hi everyone! With my 6 years old son we have bought this precious tooth in a prestigious shop at Barcelona. They have tell us that is a Mosasaurus tooth, but I think not. It looks more a Spinosaurus tooth, maybe (sorry if I'm talking absurdity, I'm totally newbie...). The teller at shop was not the usual one, and it was not possible to ask him more information. Please, may you help me to identify the correct "former owner" for this tooth? My son and I will be very grateful for that. I'm posting some photos for the piece. The first one is from the other pieces at shop, that we didn’t bought. The size for rule is in centimeters. Thanks a lot for your kindness!
  5. I was in creek bed and I came across several of these. I think they a mosasaururs am I correct? I was hunting for a couple of hours Saturday and Sunday. I found 15 different verts. busy weekend.
  6. I bought this Moroccan mosasaurus tooth in matrix some time ago. As you can see, it has a long scrape down the side. When I got it, I assumed it the tooth was damaged when it was discovered or prepared in Morocco. However, I saw a tooth for sale the other day on a website with a similar mark described as "feeding damage." What do you all think? Anyone seen this sort of thing before? Is there any way to tell feeding damage versus a more mundane type of damage?
  7. Spinosaurus or Mosasaurus

    Hello all. I bought this very neat large framed fossil a while back and the label says; “Fossil Vertebrae Dinosaur Spinosaurus Or Reptile Mosasaurus” Since I’m puzzled as the dealer was, though I lean Mosasaurus, I’m hoping some of you can help me identify what it is that I have. Personally I’m happy with either, especially considering the crazy deal I got on this specimen. If more images are needed I’ll provide them. Thanks in advance.
  8. Big Brook Jaw Section?

    Hello everyone, I was in Big Brook nj for a little while today and found this interesting bone. I'm not to sure if it's identifiable but it does remind me of a jaw section like a mosasaur or croc. Any help will appreciated, if I missed an angle or need additional pictures do let me know.
  9. Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to enlarge my fossil collection with a mosasaurus skull. However I am still not sure if this one is real or not. The teeth seem real but the skull make me doubt... can someone help me ? best regards Thomas
  10. Here are my new fossils! And how my collection looks now. For size comparison the enchodus tooth to the right in the picture of the entire collection is 5,6cm long (2.2 Inches long)
  11. Just bought some fossils:)

    I ordered 3 Mosasaurus teeth, 1 Crow shark tooth and 1 Enchodus tooth. Do they seem real? And do they have any signs of restoration?
  12. Hello, i am a Student from Germany. I have recieved the Task of analyzing the huge fossil Collection of my School, which includes this tooth. According to a profile (that appears to have been made by a fifth or sixt-grader), it is from Oued-Zem / Khouribgha, morocco. My best guess is that it is from Prognathodon. It is about 2,5 to 3 cm Long and 1 cm thick. Many thanks in Advance!!!
  13. Found it on online. Please tell me these are not fakes?
  14. Hi all, Just looking for some advice. Does this matrix look legit? Or has this mosasaur tooth been placed? cheers

  16. Could experts share the primary indicators to check for regarding authenticity of a Mosasaurus jaw specimen? - specifically root / tooth junctures. I’m aware of the sophistication of fakes in the market. Below is a recent purchase - I’d like feedback on details to look for in verifying authenticity. Thank you!
  17. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  18. What mosasaurus is it ?

    What mosasaurus is it? I bought it as Globidens phosphaticus but I find the bone is from another kind of Mosasaurus. And the seller stick them together. Can someone tell me what specie does the bone belong to? Thanks. Picture 3 is what it looks like at the begining.
  19. Hello, could you please tell me what kind of mosasaur teeth are these? Thank you very much.
  20. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    Hello, so I was thinking about buying this piece but i would love it if I could remove the matrix from it to make it look better. Is this possible? Thanks-
  21. 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
  22. NSR fossil ID

    Found some fossils from North Sulphur River in Texas. They are pretty beat-up. Any idea what they are? 1-1 Mosasaurus bone? It doesn't look like vertebra to me..... 1-2 back view 1-3 top view 1-4 bottom view 2-1 some kind mammal tooth? 3-1 sawfish tooth? few other teeth, bone and vertebrates from the trip
  23. Yesterday I made a visit to the Natural History Museum of Maastricht (The Netherlands) for my Birthday The museum is only a 40 minute drive from where I live and it showcases the entire natural history of the region, the cool thing about this museum is that the fossils which are showcased here are all regional fossils from The Netherlands, Germany & Belgium. I am starting the topic off with 2 pictures of the special exhibit called Microsculptures, which shows giant detailed photographs of insects to show how magnifecent they are. Then I went on to the "Mosaleum" which holds "Bér" the holotype specimen of Prognathodon saturator
  24. Cretaceous turtle, Oued Zem

    Hey everyone I ordered this piece last night, it will probably arrive in the course of this week. According to the listing it is a turtle bone from the cretaceous phosphate layers of Oued Zem in Morocco, but the exact species wasn't identified. But unfortunatly I am not very familiar with Cretaceous sea turles from Morocco, I just found it a nice piece to add to my Oued Zem display. So does anyone know which turtle species can be found in the cretaceous phosphate layers of Oued Zem? The only species that came out while googling was Lytoloma elegans, but I am sure some of you might know other species that lived in Oued Zem during the Cretaceous? Thanks in advance!
  25. 'Moose' the mosasaur

    I had the opportunity and good fortune to participate in the excavation and preparation of a mosasaur this past year. The specimen was discovered by a new friend, Allison, in a small unnamed stream adjacent to family property in east-central Mississippi (? Prairie Bluff Fm, Upper Cretaceous, Late Maastrichtian).Allison found the first bones in early May and contacted me for help in identifying the bones through a mutual friend. I'm far from an expert, but was able to ID the bones (a radius and vertebra) as mosasaur. She was really excited, since the bones were her first vertebrate fossils other than a few Pleistocene horse teeth from the same creek, and promised to continue searching. On her next trip, Allison exposed part of a mosasaur jaw and sent pics to me while still in the creek. Long story - short version -- We (Allison, my grandson, Logan and I) began serious excavation in early June 2018 and continued collecting (several trips) and preparation through November. Dr. Lynn Harell, Paleontologist with the Alabama Geological Survey viewed photos of the specimen as I prepped them and helped to ID individual bones and confirmed the genus as Mosasaurus. Dr. Takehito Ikejiri, Alabama Museum of Natural History, worked with me to compare "Moose' (named by Allison) to many specimens in the archives of the Museum. Both were extremely helpful to me as we tried to confirm the ID and agreed that it should be labeled as Mosasaurus sp. until further study. George Phillips of the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science identified associated invertebrate specimens in hopes of confirming the geology of the site (still unconfirmed). 'Moose' was donated to the Dunn-Seiler Museum at Mississippi State University in December 2018. It will be studied as part of a graduate students research. Following are a large number of photos documenting the site, excavation, prepration, and bones of 'Moose'. Thanks for looking.
