Real Mosasaur Specimen?

Recommended Posts

crumpet the ichthyosaur

Is this a real Globidens Aegyptiacus Mosasaur jaw specimen? 

As I am fully aware there are many fake Mosasaur jaws on the market where the bone is made from plaster and the matrix from composite sand. 

I was wondering if any body could confirm this for me?

Difficult to be certain from this picture, but it looks dodgy to me.

The crowns appear to Globidens but agree would need much closer photos to determine if the block is fabricated and teeth composited. My guess just looking at what appears  to be white under those crowns is that its composited at the minimum

Not the best photo to make a call but looks like the teeth are composited and bone placed on the matrix block.   So all fabricated.  Crowns are real.
