A seller on a popular auction is now offering dinosaur material from the elrahz formation which to me looks to be of kem kem in origin others members thoughts would be good to help people in making an educated purchase.

The first one has a weird color, but doesn't that also occur in the Elrhaz formation also? There are species like Eocarcharia dinops and Carcharodontosaurus iguidensis  that occur there so this might be from there.

 

Second looks like a Suchomimus tenerensis tooth, which also occur in this color in the Elrhaz formation but has about the same color as Spinosaurid teeth from the Kem Kem indeed. Picture below is from Elrhaz formation

I don't know anything about crocodiles from that region.

The second tooth doesn’t have any of the gray or black coloration to it. Agree that the second tooth is Kem Kem becuase it has some of the pink and red in it of that makes sense.

That first one looks like it has some reconstructing. Otherwise it does indeed look a bit like it might be from Kem Kem.

I believe the first one to be from a conglomerate block and the rest to be from a clay section which have been cleaned to remove all matrix surrounding them.

@Haravex

good call, I agree that these teeth do not look like the standard Niger teeth and superficially at least look like they are from the Kem Kem.
