Hello everybody Another of these topics, but here we go ^^" I already looked up several topics on this forum about this topic and just tried to get as much examples as posible. Just to get into this big field of Mosasaurus teeth. Getting a crown tooth seems not to be that big of a deal since they are very common. It gets interesting if you want something with a root. As I understood this is where the fakes begin. I wanted to leave 3 examples here that are offered right now and would love to have your opinion on that. These are all described as Prognathodon indet. from Khourigba / Morocco. Between 4.5 to 5 inches. Still in the original Matrix, no fabrications according to the seller. What I would like to know: Are these fabrications? And is the existence of Matrix an indication for fakes? Or is the Matrix just there to hold crown and root together (like in 2 and 3?) Can this be described as Prognathodon indet.? Or are teeth from Morocco best described as Mosasaurinae indet? 1 2 3 Unfortunatly I can't provide more or better pictures. Any help is welcome and thank you so much for your help!
lone5wolf117 posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionWhat do you think of this allosaurus tooth with root ?
Here is my drawing of a Carcharodontosaurus tooth (3 different perspective) as it would have been if found fresh out of the mouth of that beast! The root is actually missing on my fossil, so it's very possible that the root would be different. I'm thinking to do the same thing for a bigger one, to do that I will need good picture of a big one, but I don't own such a tooth. Any opinion would be appreciated, additionnal observation would help to draw a better picture of these tooth and eventually it will help me draw the jaw when I will be confident enough Took about 25 minutes in total. I intend to do a more precise drawing eventually
