  1. 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?
  2. Hey guys These are my first founding in a phosphate mine near to where i live in morocco. this is my first post and am new to the Jurassic world.
  3. Descent into the Pit - Savannah, GA

    Hello Everyone, I had the honor of being invited by @markmg to a trip down into essentially ... a big hole in the ground. Woo Hoo !! A rather large gravel/sand pit that is being mined to 50-60ft ? We were not quite sure but hopefully at least as deep as the dredging that happens on the river. You know .. a play date ! .. haha Well, having just rained out my river trip on Friday I came prepared to slog through some mud. Let's just say it was lucky we didn't have a The Princess Bride (1987) moment because the water made the sand and mud a bit soft in some spots. The open pit has to be constantly pumped out or it would fill up with water and you'd have a nice deep pond ... not so good for a gravel business. Mark had been down in the pit on several occasions and asked that I join him and see if I couldn't help him find anything ... Mark was being brutally teased having previously come out and found - ON THE RAMP- a partial meg tooth. Well, we didn't find any mega-sharks down in the pit, but after exploring for about 90 minutes, the first small hints of the phosphate pebbles we were looking for started showing up. They were washing out of a layer sitting just above an impermeable formation of red compacted clay with shell impressions. Unfortunately the preservation was poor. And very crumbly .. I'm assuming these first finds had been sitting out too long and they were returning to the ground. They were encrusted with precipitated minerals and were delicate. The first hints that maaaaaybe this wasn't a dry hole ?? Some of the encrusted bone that didn't crumble to dust ....

  5. Phosphate mine dinosaur tooth?

    I was offered this tooth it has serrations but it looks more mosasaur shaped. Any input is appreciated @LordTrilobite you have a decent amount of experience in dealing with mosasaur material correct?

  7. Hi all, I have an ammonite specimen from Folkestone, UK that is locked in a phosphate nodule. Is there any way for it to be removed? Thanks, Jay
  8. What is this? Croc scute?

    Can anyone identify this for me? I would think it was a crocodile scute, except Ive never seen that shape before.
  9. Mosasaur premaxillary bones

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    2 unidentified mosasaur species' anterior end of premaxillary bones. One with teeth broken off just beyond the skull, and the other has 2 remaining teeth, with the rest broken off at the level of the skull. the larger fossil was found in the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco. ive since lost the information for the smaller fossil, sadly.
  10. Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to break off. There are 2 other tooth marks on that rib as well, forming a diagonal line from above left of the center indent, breaking off a piece along the top, to below right.
  11. Cretaceous crocodile; likely Dyrosaurus

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Unidentified Cretaceous crocodile species, suggested by multiple people, to appear to be a Dyrosaurus, came from the second phosphatic layer of a phosphate mine(what a shocker!)around the suburbs of Khouribga, Morocco. Original teeth, not replacements. Have gone through and cleaned up the base of some of the ones that had some sand around them.
  12. Hey Gang, So need your opinions on this one...We find alot of nodules down here and this one has a particularly well digested lumpy look to it, more so than most. Any chance you think this might actually be a coprolite? It does have a few clam borings and along the top wrinkle you can see some irregular parallel tubes that make me wonder. All thoughts are welcome. Thanks! Regards, Chris
  13. I buyed this from a local dealer who, lucky for me i guess, not know what this was. He told me he found this in couche 2, which is Paleocene. I think this is a unique specimen because i never see this from the phosphate before.
  14. Kem Kem phosphate vertebrae

    Nearly finished this item, it did not survive the journey well (not packed by me) and was in numerous pieces. Turned out ok though IMO once stabilised and re-joined. Can you see the gastrolith? Nigel
