Hello

 

I am from Austria so Sry for my English.

 

I have bought some fossils and want to ask some experts what they Think about it. 

 

 

The First is a spinosaurus tooth. 

What you Think about it, is he real and how much is it worth?20171213_173934.thumb.jpg.026b25dec9e32a4b7a5cfd11f208b8ce.jpg

And the Second one is what i Think a cacharodontosaurus. 

I know its Not in Perfect conditions but for me is important that they are real.:)

Welcome to the forum

Your first tooth is a Spinosaurid and real but it appears to have a composite root with some repair.  Please take more pictures so we can have a better look.

Your second is real but will need more pictures to determine what it is.  What is the size.  It has had some repairs and the back may be composited, repaired or restored.

Thank you for the Spinosaurid pictures

The tip is restored and I don't think the root is real.  The crown is real between the arrows

The other tooth is a Carcharodontosaurid with some repairs.  Would like to see pictures tooth flat on table both sides straight down not at sn angle

It's amazing how much effort the Moroccans put in these teeth.  Nothing goes to waste, which if sold as restored would not be bad

Thank you John makes life a but easier

The tooth is all there a bit weathered but I think Carch.  That dark area in the middle is where someone patched it and I do think the front and back belong to the same tooth but that subject for debate but to your point it's real.

 

We call the top tooth Spinosaurid because there appears to be multiple species of Spinos in the Kem Kem of Morocco and currently we cannot differentiate between species.  The two known are  Spinosaurus  and Sigilmassasaurus

Both of these have been restored using a mixture of matrix and superglue, and the spinosauride tooth looks to me like a composition, I hope you didn't pay too much for these and would advise finding a new seller as these are not of the greatest quality at all. The second one has me leaning towards a partial juvenile carcharadontosaurs tooth, having said that without a better look at the serrations its hard to identify. If your looking for spinosaruide teeth this is what you should in my opinion be looking for.

We do not do appraisals on the forum but I can say you paid much to much for that Spinosaurid tooth probably because the dealer thought the root was real

Agreed with the overpriced however on the forums we do not do appraisals for a various number of reason, however you can always ask here what you think of a specimen and we can give you opinions on the quality, condition and degree of "real" product. In general i find it best to stay away from anything that looks like there has been super glue involved especially if i was ever to buy online as this is the way most of these fabrications occur due to "repair" when its blatantly a restoration.
