  1. Indeed, more Spinosaurus teeth from me. I appreciate the help that many of you have offered. It's much easier to spot potential issues with more experienced eyes and angles I hadn't considered. I have two Spinosaurus teeth here, both over 4". They look kosher to me barring some minor matrix fill on cracks. Confirmation would be lovely! Thank you, Bellamy First: Second:
  2. I have here a 5" Spinosaurus tooth. The claim is that it has some repair to it using glue, but that it's all one tooth as opposed to a composite. If that were the case, I would be fine with it. However, I have my suspicions that it's a composite. I'd appreciate some more eyes on this!
  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. Who was the former owner for this tooth?

    Hi everyone! With my 6 years old son we have bought this precious tooth in a prestigious shop at Barcelona. They have tell us that is a Mosasaurus tooth, but I think not. It looks more a Spinosaurus tooth, maybe (sorry if I'm talking absurdity, I'm totally newbie...). The teller at shop was not the usual one, and it was not possible to ask him more information. Please, may you help me to identify the correct "former owner" for this tooth? My son and I will be very grateful for that. I'm posting some photos for the piece. The first one is from the other pieces at shop, that we didn’t bought. The size for rule is in centimeters. Thanks a lot for your kindness!
  5. How spinosaurus teeth and bones are so common fossil on the market, the same time that we know very little about this dinosaur? Also, in my favorite fossil website, i have see 6-7 times, "spinosaurus vertebra" with cost from 200 to 500 dollars. They vertebra are really from spinosaurus?
  6. Real spinosaurus vertebra?

    Hello. Seller claim that this fossil is Spinosaurus vertebra from kem kem basin. May i know your thought about this vert ID. to me personally i think it look a bit like Croc vert. (not sure tho. i have a hard time ID some vert lately.) thank you.
  7. I am new and I need your oppinion about this Spinosaurus tooth:
  8. Huge spinosaurus jaw?

    Hello! I see for sale this huge jaw (50cm) with some teeth. It’s from Kem Kem. What do you think? Any idea for The correct price? Thank you!
  9. Bought from a fossil website. Considerably new to fossil hunting/collecting. Please help me out:)
  10. I purchased this tooth at a fossil shop while visiting canada and was just wondering if it was in fact a real tooth from a spinosaurus. It doesnt quite look like other teeth I've seen on the internet so I'm very unsure.
  11. 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.
  12. Hello! First time poster here. I was wondering if anyone could help tell me if this tooth is a composite or not. I have read up on a few other that look similar, but I am still hopeful. Realistically, it probably is composite. I have a UV light and can give more details about it if they are needed. Thanks!
  13. Kem Kem croc jaw fragments ID

    I've got five jaw fragments from the Kem Kem of which I think they are from crocodilians. Any ideas as to what genus or species these belong would be appriciated. 1. No idea what this jaw is from, but my best guess is some crocodilian. 2. I also don't know what this is but also probably some crocodilian. 3. This one has a hard layer of sediment covering it and it's missing the underside of the jaw. It looks a bit like the dented part of a Spinosaurus dentary but it's more likely also crocodilian. 4. Definitely crocodilian, has a typical croc texture (lots of dents). To me it looks like a right jugal with a part of the maxilla. 5. Also some crocodilian, resembles an Elosuchus jaw but it's pretty small so maybe a juvenile or some other croc. Have fun ID'ing!
  14. Largest theropods

    We all know that spinosaurus is most possible to be the largest theropod. Spinosaurus was not very tall (in the hip) but it probably was heavier and longest that tyrannosaurus, giga and carcha. But, what is the second biggest theropod ever? (only carnivorous, not herbivorous like deinocheirus). I think, that tyrannosaurus rex is the second biggest theropod ever. Giganotosaurus and carcharodontosaurus was longest that t. rex, but not tallest and heavier. Giraffe is taller that elephant, but elephant is the biggest terrestrial mammal. Argentinosaurus, supersaurus, patagotitan, diplodocus, was longest that blue whale, but blue whale is the biggest animal ever.
  15. Hello, could you help me what do you think about this Spinosaurus claw and bones? I´m thinking about buy it. I know, that is reconstructed, but I hope is not fake, or is it? Thank you very much for help.
  16. So sadly its paywalled as usual I hope to read it soon but the general theme of the abstract seems to suggest various taxonomic of spinosaurus family are no longer valid. Again until I read the paper I wont say anything more than personally I'm highly skeptical. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667120302068
  17. Kem Kem Mixed bones

    Hello, I know assorted bones can be difficult, but I'm wondering if anyone can recognise any of these mixed bones? Labelled as Kem Kem Dinosaur, possibly Spinosaurus. Anyone has any idea. Whether bone, kem kem, dinosaur or spino, that would be much appreciated. Cheers
  18. Spinosaurid Vertebra?

    I'm looking for a little help identifying this bone from the Kem Kem Beds. It looks to part of a vertebra - it's almost 6 inches long so I immediately thought that narrows it down to being a partial Spinosaurid or Charcharodontosaurus vertebra. After spending ages looking through previous post and searching for detailed pictures of vertebrae, I came to the conclusion it belongs to a Spinosaurid (Spinosaurus or Sigilmassasaurus) because the shape just looks wrong for Carch (although there isn't much to go off for Carch vertebrae). Just looking for some input as to whether I'm correct as I know some members are far more familiar with Kem Kem bones. Would you say this looks like a partial Spino vertebra or is it far too fragmentary to say?
  19. Hi! I’m new in the forum. I'm an Italian naturalist, sorry for my english. I wanted to ask for an opinion about this spinosaurus tooth .. I don't think it's a single tooth, in your opinion how much is it composed and restored? thanks!
  20. Spinosaurus tail

    I’m not sure if anyone else has posted anything about this but just wanna know what you guys think about the new spinosaurus tail announced fairly recently?
  21. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bottom: Rhombodus binkhorsti Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Severn Formation Locality: Bowie, Maryland, USA Size: 1 meters Diet: Molluscs and crustaceans art by Nobu Tamura --------------- Polyptychodon interruptus Age: 105.3 - 94.3 mya | Cretaceous Formation: Stoilensky Quarry stratigraphic unit Locality: Stary-Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia Size: Maybe 7 meters (This is a tooth taxon so size is not confirmed) Diet: Anything it could catch Note: If you consider Polytychodon a nomen dubium, then this is a Pliosauridae indet. art by Mark Witton ----------------- Prognathodon giganteus Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Ouled Abdoun Basin Locality: Khouribga Phosphate Deposits, Morocco Size: 10-14 meters Diet: Everything art by SYSTEM(ZBrushCentral) --------------- Coloborhynchinae indet. Age: 99.7 - 94.3 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Kem Kem Beds Locality: Southeast Morocco Size: 7 meters (high estimate) Diet: Fish and cephalopods
  22. Spinosaurus or Mosasaurus

    Hello all. I bought this very neat large framed fossil a while back and the label says; “Fossil Vertebrae Dinosaur Spinosaurus Or Reptile Mosasaurus” Since I’m puzzled as the dealer was, though I lean Mosasaurus, I’m hoping some of you can help me identify what it is that I have. Personally I’m happy with either, especially considering the crazy deal I got on this specimen. If more images are needed I’ll provide them. Thanks in advance.
  23. I have in my collection a spinosaurus tooth from [name redacted by staff]. A nice and big tooth. But i have some questions about this. In the site, write that this tooth is from Spinosaurus Maroccanus. And i have read, that Spinosaurus Moroccanus is not real species and the fossils are from S. Aegyptiacus or Sigilmassasaurus . What you believe?
