Hello everybody :)

 

ok, its a little clickbaity, because I'm not talking about a scientific article, as I'm just a random amateur with no scientific background. But I had the chance to publish an article in the most important german fossil magazine, the Steinkern, with around a circulation of 1,500 :) 

With good content everybody can write an article there, from amateurs like me to professional paleontologists. It mainly focues on german fossils, like Amonites and other Marine fossils, but is open to all fossil fields. 

 

Just use this link to scroll through some magazines to get an idea what I talk about, its in German, but I think you'll get the idea ;)

I got in contact with the editor of Steinkern and he offered me the chance to write an article about Dinosaurs since he doesn't really know anyone who is really that into Dino fossils and the Steinkern magazine has had not much articles regarding Dinosaurs. 

That is a problem I already saw a lot of time. Germany is not a "Dinosaur-Country", there are not that many people that focus on Dinosaurs, so with KemKem teeth, there is a lot of misinformation going around. You can see that most of the time on German fossils shows, where a lot of people just belive what the seller is telling them. 

 

I wanted to clear things up, so that people from Germany know what they buy and especially what the DON'T buy.

Of course I had to include several of my best teeth. Like my 4.5 inch Carch tooth :)

This is a guide from an amateur to amateurs on how to ID Theropod teeth from KemKem with all the problems we at TFF are aware of.

I cover the following problems:

Spinosaurid

Carcharodontosaurid

Abelisaurid

Deltadromeus agilis

Dromaeosaurid

Theorpod teeth in general

 

Even though its just an amateur article I have an Reference list of 20 scientific article from Stromer 1915 until Ibrahim 2020.  

 

I want to thank @Troodon for helping me with a lot of questions I got. His guides here at TFF where very usefull. 

 

Here you got the summary with the mention of my article:

https://www.steinkern.de/inhaltsangaben/1355-heft43.html

 

It was a great honor for me and I decided to go with the Identification of Theropod teeth from the KemKem since these a fossils found all over the internet and fossils shows, but the ID is hardly done correctly.

 

For the frist time, there is finally an article in German that will work as a ID - guide for KemKem Theropod teeth. I feel a little proud of myself, that I managed to publish it :) 

Congrats! My amateur articles years ago are what convinced me to go to school and do journal research...and got me out of factories for good. Id buy you quite a few rounds down at the pub for this accomplishment. Well Done!

Such a shame that this excellent magazine is not published in English, iam sure it would be very popular.

Determination aid for theropod teeth from the KemKem Group (Oberkreide, Morocco)

Florian Zintl, volume: 14 pages, 8 fig.

 

The deposits of the KemKem Group (Upper Cretaceous) in eastern Morocco are among the most important fossil deposits in the world. Bones and teeth from this region are offered on almost all fossil sites and on the Internet. Especially teeth of the two great top predaders Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus are available in different sizes and quality  attention, also as forgeries ("Frankenstein teeth")! Numerous scientific articles are published annually on the kemKem group's fossil tour. Florian Zintl's article summarizes the current state of science with regard to theropod teeth and thus represents a valuable help in determining own collection pieces.
