Crocodile teeth sold as Spinosaurus?


Recommended Posts

So I needed a lot of Spinosaur teeth and cheap since they were going to be a gift for kids 13-14 years old as a part of a school project. I contacted a known online shop which sells at a discount if you buy similar to seen instead of actual as seen. 

 

I think that I got a bit scammed. Maybe not, is just that these teeth looks a lot more (for me) as crocodile than Spinosaur. I know that there are a lot and the pics are not that good, but I really need just to know if some of them are in fact not Spinosaur since then I would cancel the gift.

I can't just give fake information at a school project.

To me, some of the ones in the top row appear to be crocodile.  But all the ones in the bottom 2 rows appear to be spinosaurid.  I would suggest waiting for other opinions before canceling an order though.

Those bottom three on the left definitely look like spinosaurid. There might be a few more. But I don't see more than 6 spinosaur teeth.

I think you are correct that most of these are croc teeth. The fatter teeth would fit with potentially being Elosuchus.

Thank you all for your answers. It confirms my fears. It's incredible that allegedly profesional online stores can made this """"'mistake""""

 

I feel bad for the kids, at least I didn't announce the gift so they will not be dissapointed.

Well, at least you do have a few Spinosuarus teeth here. 

And I think Elosuchus teeth are pretty cool, too. 

And you have the chance to study the difference with the children, and maybe even a life lesson on not to trust everything you see advertised on the internet. :)
