Real or Fake Masosaur Jaw?

Recommended Posts

Saturated-Sam

I am looking into buying one of these parts of a mosasaur jaw and wanted to make sure there real. I believe there is, but getting a second opinion always helps

I would say that the jaw bone is real but the teeth have been placed onto the

So real jaw and teeth, but the piece wasn’t found like that.

The left tooth on the first item appears to look correct and probably belongs with the jaw. The rest of the teeth look suspect. The jaw bones themselves are real.

 

Not the worst examples of Mosasaur jaws. But with the composited teeth there are definitely plenty of better specimens to get. I would pass on these.

The composited teeth aren't even the same species. Pass.

I agree, and the quality is not so very good, too....

It's quite common to put real teeth into real jaw bones as a composite.

 

I would also pass on these as the two teeth in the first example clearly are not from the same species. Just looks bad once you notice it.

I agree and would say pass on these.
