  1. Hi, All. The best I can do with this is simply put up the pictures and let wiser minds than mine (ie: everybody else!) take a look. I don't know what this is; it has tooth-like qualities, but I just can't get a handle on it. It would have come from the Agadez area of Niger, for what that's worth. Thanks for looking!
  2. could this be a bone?

    Hi, All. I came across this yesterday, but couldn't make heads nor tails of it.... I want to think it's not a bone - one side is very smooth, while the other has a tone of small stones attached to it - but the view of the inside has me wondering.... Thanks for looking at it, and telling me what I'm looking at. I seem to have a really long learning curve! Rob @LordTrilobite @Bone guy @Haravex @Troodon
  3. Hi, All. Okay - I'm trying to learn here, so please bear with me! I've been told that many of the teeth I've acquired here in Niger have been croc teeth, and that one of the ways to tell a croc tooth is by a circular base (basil?), while spinosauridae teeth are more oval.... That said, I offer the following two teeth for your informed evaluation! The bigger one is relatively narrow (the side shot with the enamel curving over the top gives you an idea), with the smaller one has a distinct "ridge" on each front/back (I know those aren't the technical terms - sorry!). As always, I greatly appreciate the education that you folks are giving me - thank you! Rob @Troodon @Haravex @jpc @LordTrilobite
  4. Hi, All. Here's another "large" fossil I've acquired. Same origin as the others - Agadez area of the Sahara desert in Niger. Based on the feedback I got on an earlier submission, I'm wondering if this could be from a sauropod and, if so, what part of the skeleton? As you can see, there's a lot of mud on it that I haven't tried to remove yet, as I am a complete neophyte and don't know the proper way to do so. I welcome any and all guidance on that too. Thanks so much for all your replies! Rob @Haravex @LordTrilobite @jpc @Troodon @-Andy-
  5. Hi, Folks. Thank you so much for the feedback on my first posting of teeth! Apparently there were more than a few crocodiles in the Agadez area of Niger, back when it wasn't desert! I'll post the next set, and follow that up with a posting of another very large fossil from the same area. I truly appreciate the education I'm getting on here! Rob @Troodon @LordTrilobite @jpc @-Andy-
  6. teeth from the Sahara - Agadez, Niger

    Hi, All. I finally managed to photograph all my teeth with a scale, and am hoping for someone with a lot more knowledge than me (ie: just about anyone on this site!) to tell me what I've got. I've got them divided into 6 different sets of teeth, and tried to photograph them with a bit of logic (teeth in a row, teeth flipped over to show other side in a row, bottom of teeth displayed one at a time in order, etc.). I'm trying to learn the difference between types of teeth (crocodile vs. spinosaurus vs. m-something, etc.), so if there are any common clues, I'd really appreciate the guidance. I was told that the bottom of croc teeth are more perfectly round, while others are more oval in appearance, but that's the limit of my knowledge. I also don't know the difference between "regular" crocodile fossilized teeth, and those of the "super-croc" that has been discovered in the same region of Niger. I've also got two that I can't make heads or tails out of, that I'm hoping for clarity regarding. I guess I'll start with those.... I'll try and space my submissions out, so as not to take up too much time and space. As always, thank you so much for your help and guidance! Rob @jpc @Troodon
  7. Dino (?) bones from Niger #4

    Here's the last set I'll trouble you with today - #4. I've lots more I'm totally ignorant of.... Thank you! Rob
  8. Dino (?) bones from Niger #3

    Here's the 3rd set; could this be a rib?
  9. Dino (?) bones from Niger #2

    Here's the second set....
  10. Dino (?) bones from Niger #1

    Hi, All! I finally managed to get some photos with a cm/mm scale of some of the "dinosaur bones" I've been able to acquire here. These all came from the Agadez area of the Sahara desert in Niger. I have absolutely no idea what type of dinosaur these might be from (if they are dinosaur bones), and would appreciate any and all help you can give me! I haven't tried to remove the dried mud, etc. from several of them; I don't know the proper way of doing so, and I don't want to mess anything up.... I won't throw everything on here at once, but I'll list them all the same way with a progressive #? designation. Thank you so much for all your help! Rob
  11. bivalve that looks like a "toe"?

    Hi, All. I don't have a clue what these are, but I'm guessing a bivalve of some kind? They came from the desert sand near Agadez, Niger, but that's all I know. The street merchant I got them from thought they were dino toes, but I'm guessing not.... The thing that confuses me the most (other than the fact that I haven't been able to find any pictures of bivalves that look like this) is that it doesn't look like the "shell" would actually close like a clam or mussel. Any and all help in identifying these would be most appreciated! Rob
  12. Dinosaur bones from Niger

    These are described as dinosaur bones from the niger. They are clearly vertebrae so could they belong to Suchomimus or afrovenator? The two in the first pic are between 5 and 10cm and the rest are around 15cm. Thanks in advance
  13. Trematochampsa

    Does anyone have a copy of the following paper that I could read: Louise M V Meunier, Hans C E Larsson; Trematochampsa taqueti as a nomen dubium and the crocodyliform diversity of the Upper Cretaceous In Beceten Formation of Niger, Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, Volume 182, Issue 3, 17 March 2018, Pages 659–680, https://doi.org/10.1093/zoolinnean/zlx061
  14. Pterosaur tooth?

    I saw this tooth as pterosaur from Niger, but some possible wear on it makes it look like sauropod. Please help ID ,thanks in advance.
  15. Niger dinosaur

    I am purchasing this dinosaur tooth from niger. I was told that it’s afrovenator, but that’s not possibly since teeth haven’t been identified from them yet. Anyone know what this could be?
  16. Hey everyone, Here is a photo of two suchomimus teeth that I might buy, but I was wondering if they were real. These are the only photos I have. I trust the seller who is selling them, but I always like to make sure. They were found in Niger. Please help! Thanks!

  22. Osteology of Ouranosaurus nigerensis

    This takes some time to download!!!!* 114 Mb,approximately Cite this as Bertozzo F, Dalla Vecchia FM, Fabbri M. (2017) The Venice specimen of Ouranosaurus nigeriensis (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) PeerJ 5:e3403https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.3403 As Taquet didn't formally describe the species, this is a significant advance in our knowledge of the species. Note: This can be called a monograph due to its length. Audience: all dinosaur lovers, but please note that this IS a "technical" paper. Pretty good depiction of pelvic parts and manus. Cladogram warning! EDIT: I don't know my exact connection speed, but don't be surprised if it takes a couple of minutes.
