  1. Ahoi. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Tried it anyway. Because of the size in my chosen scale of 1/20 I decided to model it on Platecarpus, although I don´t claim to be accurate to even genus level. It´s just the medium sized Mosasaur to go with my whales and other seacritters. The flippers may need further detailwork. But for now I am content with the result. The base is a recent tuna vert by the way. Aloha!
  2. I'm considering purchasing this platecarpus jaw. The only thing is......I'm not sure its platecarpus at all. It certainly looks mosasaur to me, but something about the spacing between the teeth seems off.....maybe halisaurus? The jaw is 8.66 inches long, it's from morocco (ouled abdoun basin), and it's currently labeled as platecarpus ptychodon. any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. I found this yesterday listed as a 10.7" Platecarpus ptychodon jaw section. Everything looks fine to me, but I want to be sure it's 100% real and not composited before deciding whether or not to buy it. The price seems surprisingly low for a jaw section of this size.
  4. Platecarpus tooth

    Tooth of a mosasaur.
  5. Platecarpus tooth

    Tooth of a mosasaur. Found together with a shark and Zarafasaura tooth.
  6. Hi all, I have a set of three lovely reptilian teeth from Barbour and Russell Counties of Alabama that I need help identifying. First up, the large mosasaur tooth. The size and general shape of this points to Tylosaurus, Second, the smaller mosasaur tooth. The size and shape points either to Platecarpus or Clidastes propython. I can't decide. Third, the croc. As far as I know, Deinosuchus and Bottosaurus are the only crocs from this area. The tooth looks like Bottosaurus to me. I'm unfamiliar with teeth from this locality, so I'd appreciate any help in getting them identified.
  7. Just want to get some expertise opinions on this particular tooth since Moroccan Mosasaur teeth are some of the hardest thing to ID. I have had this tooth for quite a while now and have assumed it to be a Beaugei tooth specimen due to it's facetted nature which I assume whether correctly or not, that it's a key feature of this specie. Though I can't be so sure although, I have always assumed that a Platecarpus teeth specimens have always been small like the ones in the picture below: But it doesn't mean that a Platecarpus won't grow into a large size thus their teeth will also grow, but I have never seen large mosasaur teeth with striation like the smaller specimens in the picture above, so it makes me wonder if the Platecarpus once they grow and their teeth enlarge, do the striations change into facetted feature like the large tooth that I assumed to be a Beaugei? Any expert input or opinions would be appreciated to shine light on my specimen so I can label it correctly with enough information. Thx

  10. Mosasaur (The Return)

    Hey guys, right now I'm out in Western Kansas doing some hunting. I thought I'd share with you a picture of my work today: It was hard to take a picture in the sun. Came in almost one piece cracked on the way to the car but should be easily repairable. Here is the other dent. to this specimen: -Kris (KansasFossilHunter)
  11. skull finished and mounted

    From the album Articulated Platecarpus Skull

    Articulated Platecarpus skull from Northern Africa Phosphates. 3 Feet long. The skull was so well articulated that rather than doing a 3D mount we left it as it was and mounted it vertical on a stand.
