Hello, I saw this for sale, now, am I right that this is not an Iguanodon jaw as it is being sold as? I had a compare of Iguanodon jaws and they tend to have the tooth ... holes? slots? Down the side with lots of little splitter teeth going through. Whereas this one seems like it has actual tooth sockets. So, am I right to be suspicious and that this is in fact a crocodile? Or am I wrong and it is an Iguanodon jaw? It is 5 inches long, broken and repaired. Found on Isle of Wight. Thanks
I was perusing our favorite auction site and saw two specimens of purported Cambropallas that look exceedingly different than the usual squished-in-a-shale-nodule sort of bugs that traditionally are found for sale (and faked with reckless abandon). These look more like a Cambrian form of the Moroccan Devonian bugs - preserved in limestone in inflated, 3-dimensional form, complete with axial spines toward the rear. If you search for: "Cambropallas sp. telesto Flying Free" you will see more pictures of these highly suspicious items than the ones I attached. I am deeply suspicious of these, although the particular vendor has not posted anything that I could point to being an outright fabrication before. Thoughts? ---Prem
