  1. This is a large Spinosaur tooth. It has obvious repairs, and some restoration horizontally along the middle of the tooth. However, I'm wondering if it looks composite. The claim is that it isn't composite, but I'm suspicious.
  2. Theropods

    I decided to expand my obsession with sharks towards an obsession with theropods. I received my first piece today, a Spinosaur from Morocco, even making a display resembling the rolling deserts of the Sahara for it. This thread will be updated when any further theropod teeth arrive
  3. Spinosaurus bone?

    I’m gambling that this is a spinosaur bone, as it is supposed to be, but I really don’t know. Can anyone ID what this bone is, and if it’s spinosaurus or not? It’s apparently from Kem Kem. Thanks so much for any, and all help:)
  4. I have here a Spinosaur tooth. It's nearly 4". I don't doubt it's "real," but it looks restored to me and I would appreciate help figuring out just how restored it is.
  5. Spinosaurus quadrate bone?

    Can anyone tell me if this is a spinosaurus quadrate bone? It is apparently from Kem Kem. I think it looks pretty quadratey, just going by a number that I’ve seen in pictures. I JUST purchased/won it, but havent paid yet, so I was hoping I could get opinions ASAP, so I can either pay right away, or discuss cancelling the purchase if it’s not what it’s supposed to be. Normally I would have asked for help on here BEFORE purchasing, but it was a last moment situation, so i barely even had time to think, let alone post on here about it. Any help is greatly appreciated, as always!!! oh yeah, also, what’s that odd thing attached to the side of the upper part, thats even a different color? I’m guessing it’s part of the fossil, just....I don’t even know! I have no idea what would make it so weird and different from the rest.
  6. Spinosaur jaw

    Sold as jaw section. From Kem Kem. 140mm long. Lower jaw. Dpesnt say if teeth are from the jaw or added. Anyone know if ID is correct? Will be nice alongside my spino verts. Thanks
  7. Irritator neuroanatomy paper

    A new study came out about Irritator where they scanned the skull to get a brain endocast. The paper itself is open access and so are the 3d files! I guess I know what I'll be 3d printing soon... Open access paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-66261-w scan files: https://www.morphosource.org/Detail/SpecimenDetail/Show/specimen_id/28531
  8. Spinosaur vert

    Any thoughts on this? Another vert I'd like to add to my buy list. From Kem Kem. 17cm long. Dorsal vert. Is the spinosaur label good, or could it be carcharodontosaur? Or, croc? Also, tge brown line down the middle isn't something suspicious ? Like a sign of restoration?
  9. Spinosaurus forearm?

    I know about the 2 vertebrates in the jacket but the other bones, do you think these are part of the Spinosaur forearms? Fossil found in Morocco.
  10. Hi, Saw this for sale and was just wondering if this looks like a theropod toe bone or if it could be narrowed down? it is labelled as from Suchomimus but it could instead be from a croc or another theropod if not Suchomimus. It is 10cm in length and comes from the Elhraz Formation in Gadoufaouna, Africa. Thanks.
  11. Hi, Was wondering if this tooth from the Sao Khua Formation in Thailand is from the Spinosaur Siamosaurus or if it is a croc tooth. The tooth is 3cm long. Thanks.
  12. Spinosaur tooth or crocodile tooth?

    I have this tooth from the KemKem basin in my collection. I have always assumed it is Spinosaur but having looked at it again I am starting to wonder if it is crocodile. Can anyone confirm the identification? Thanks, Daniel
  13. Hello are these real. I got this offerd to me and want some opinions Thanks After some time away i want to start collecting again
  14. Spinosaur tail vert and sail

    Just wondering on this guy.... The sail seems to be 100% vertical which would mean it was at or very near the center of mass. Since there is only one sail vert that should sit completely vertical and the others showing a tilt I'm curious what you all thought of this specimen.
  15. Spinosaurus vertebra

    Is this entirely a spinosaurus vert? I’m wondering if the top and bottom are from the same bone. From the sides I could see there being some matrix camouflaging where they’re connected, but then from the front or back view, i think it looks like it’s clearly uninterrupted, so as usual, I need help:/
  16. Greetings kind people, I am a complete novice in the field of fossil collecting. Kindly bear with me. My objective for collecting fossils: I want to learn paleontology work. I want to observe the fossils under a microscope, understand their body structure, their food habits.... Basically get a *whole story of the fossil* which I own, something that paleontologists do (I also want to explore all the methods that paleontologists use to study fossil and recreate them at home). So any fossil that will enable me to learn more about itself, I'd surely buy that. And also fossils which are more closer to actuality, rather than rare or good looking fossils. So any fossil that reveals more information is favoured over rare or good-looking fossils So here are my questions: 1) I'm trying to buy a spinosaur tooth. The seller is selling one spinosaur tooth which is red in colour for a higher price compared to a spinosaur tooth which looks almost like a rock. So is the red colour tooth more authentic or more valuable etc? Or is it just the same? My objective is to study those fossils under microscope. So if the red spinosaur tooth will provide more information, I'd buy that. 2) I see some dinosaur tooth still having some enamel. How is this possible? I mean shouldn't enamel be replaced by minerals too? Or is the enamel the only thing that is intact? If it is intact does it mean I'm holding a tooth which might have bit another dinosaur moments before it died and I can see the traces of that activity when I observe under the microscope? 3) I've seen polished ammonites which were split open. They carried a lot of information within, compared to unpolished ammonite. Which among those two types would reveal more information about the ammonite itself? Or which one should I go for, in general? 4)I am also planning to buy amber fossils. Some pointers and what to look for and what to keep away from would be appreciated. 5) Lastly, trilobites. How are trilobite fossils so well preserved? I've seen reedops protruding out of the rock like it's actually alive. But I read something about cast fossils and enhancements. So if I buy a reedops trilobite, does it mean it's been remade using plaster etc, or is it just as it is? Please bear in mind that I want to own fossils which closely resembles actuality Thank you so much for bearing with my silly doubts .I just want to educate myself and be an amateur paleontologist, studying fossils from home. Have a lovely day! P.s- I can upload some pictures and website links if need be.
  17. spinosaurus vertebra?

    What do you guys think? Apparently from Oued Zem, Morocco.
  18. Does this seem real? It just looks sort of suspect to me. The channel running down the length looks way to uniform and perfect to be real.
  19. Hello, I have purchased this interesting fossil tooth from Kem Kem Beds, but I don´t know about the ID, it looks like Spinosaur or fish, but I´m not sure. Can you help me with the ID? The tooth is 1.1 inch (2,8cm) in lenght. Best regards!
  20. Spinosaur jaw section?

    Does this look like a spinosaurus jaw section? The tooth looks legit from what I can see, but the jaw bone looks strange for an apparent Kem Kem fossil. Is that trench along the tooth line, in the top view, a spino feature?
  21. Help with some teeth

    Hello, Before I made this post I did some research by myself. By scrolling through the forum here I already learned that the teeth I have in my collection are composites. I also have doubts with the Spinosaurid tooth. It is not serrated but it has a sharp edge in both sides. I thought they had to conical with striations? The Mosasaurs hoffmanni and the Elasmosaur sp. are valid I think (even if they are composites). I even believe the Elasmosaur is a broken tooth put back together and not built out of different Elasmosaur teeth. I am curious for your opinion. First three photos are from Elasmosaur sp. number four and five are Mosasaur hoffmanni six to eight is Spinosaurus aegypticus according to label, but I prefer to label it as Spinosaurus indet. cause I'm not sure. I thought I read somewhere on the forum that Spinosaurus aegypticus would only be valid in Egypt. All three teeth come from Morrocco. The Spino and Mosa were super cheaps (I think that should be a hint). I paid 10€ per tooth. The Elasmosaur was 27€.
  22. Two teeth from the Kem Kem Beds

    I also found these two teeth at our local fair. I bought them despite of the lack of information privided because the spinosaurid tooth (if it is spinosaurid and not mosasaur) was pretty cheap for its size and the other tooth which was labeled "Rebbachisaurus garasbae" had an unusal shape in contrast to all the other material from Kem Kem that is available here. The seller only provided the information that both teeth are from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. This is the tooth that was labeled as Spinosaurus aegyptiacus. But from my previous tooth I know that one cannot differentiate between S. aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus so that it should be labeled as "Spinosaurus indet.". Is this correct?
  23. Suchomimus vs. spinosaurus

    Does anyone have any specific way(s) to tell the difference between suchomimus teeth and spinosaurus teeth? I know there's an eventual size difference, but that only helps if the tooth is too big to be from a sucho.
  24. Authentic spinosaur claw

    I know the general shape is right for a spinosaur toe claw, but I know spinosaur claws are a significantly faked thing, so getting someone who really knows what they're looking at, is the way to go!
  25. Spinosaurus bones?

    Can anyone identify these as spinosaurus bones. Ive come across these pictures with very little information, other than apparently spinosaur bones from Morocco. I think the verts look clearly spinosaur, but I'm not very familiar with spinosaur long bones, although they immediately struck me as looking a little off. Maybe them being flattened is throwing me off. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for not just help learning spino long bones, but also while dealing with details like that, which can interfere with "standard" identification. In the 4th picture, the fossil on the bottom right--is that a vert with a long bone next to it? It's positioned like the sail of the vert, and seems to be attached to the vert but something about the bone looks wrong for part of the sail, to me...maybe that it looks like it's rounded along the length's edge, which I thought was not how they were shaped(if I'm wrong, I could also be just picturing dimetrodon sail spines...well, or just plain wrong, of course)? ...As well as looking just like the other long bones present. Thanks for any and all help!
