    Moroccan Abelisaurid tooth?

    Hi! I've been eyeing these supposed Abelisaurid teeth from Morocco (Kem Kem beds?), but I'm unsure if they are what they're labelled as. Are these two Abelisaur teeth? Or are do they belong to another theropod in the formation? (Mostly being confused with how one differentiates KK "raptor" teeth from true abelisaur teeth) Tooth A: Images 1 to 4 Tooth B: Images 5 to 8 I've read @Troodon's fantastic guide to Kem Kem teeth. However, as a very amateur fossil collector, I'm only able to identify but the only feature I am able to identify as abelisaurid is the mesial side being curv

    Niger Theropod (+Fish) ID

    I recently purchased Niger fossils, and as expected, provenance was poor. I know it's ill-advised to buy fossils without good provenance, but I decided to take a gamble here. There was a sliver of hope in getting provenance as the seller could contact their source in Niger, but alas, outside Agadez is the best they got. The first fossil was sold as possible Kryptops, and 2nd just Theropod. I also got fish fossils from the same group. Elrhaz, Irhazer II, and Tiouraren appear to be the 3 formations in that region, and most fossils from Niger you often see for sale are sup

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of

    Something mysterious

    I have wondered about this one for several years. It is from the east side of Lake Turkana, in Kenya but I wasn't at the actual spot from where it was picked up, so I don't know anything about the specifics of the location. This was one of at least a dozen specimens that I saw. The other side looks the same as what you can see in the photo. I have wondered if it could be a stromatolite but the shape is odd for that. Could it be some sort of evaporative feature? It is the only one I have, so I haven't tried cutting it open. I'd love to hear some opinions.

    Proboscid Tooth

    I found this Proboscid tooth on a riverbank in Kenya. Is it a recent one from L. africana or something older? It is about 9 or 10 cm long.

    Fish (?) Vertebrae from Central Africa

    Hello TFF members, My grandparents run an NPO and frequently travel to developing countries. A couple of years ago they went to some country in Africa and brought back a bunch of miscellaneous bones. They gave me 3 pieces from a basket of a bunch of pieces, but I didn't really care for them because I thought they were modern bones. I've recently realized that these pieces are, without a doubt, fossilized and would love to be able to ID them to see what they are. Unfortunately, I do not know the specific country/location where these pieces were found. My best guess, base

    What kind of jaw is this?

    Can anyone tell me what this is? All I know is it’s from Kem Kem. My best guess is some type of crocodile. What else even has all those nerve channels besides crocs and the spinosaur family? I think the shape(top&bottom view) looks similar to pancake croc jaws, and I’m pretty sure there were a number of others with that type of jaw, but I don’t know when and where they were, sooooo.......does anyone have any thoughts about it?

  18. as a connoisseur of Pterosaurs, I wanted to ask the Community here to show me it's pterosaur fossils from the Kem Kem Formation. After seeing a rare Tapejarid Premaxilla recently get sold on a Fossil Dealing site (labeled incorrectly as Alanqa), I wondered what treasures could be present in Private Collections in this Community. Teeth are just as welcome as Bones are.
  19. Hi everyone, Can you help me identify what animal this may be? It was found in Botswana. It is a semi-arid climate. Any idea if it's carnivorous or not? Any clues are helpful! Thanks.
  20. Pterosaur Fossils are a rarity, and few ever are on the public market, but the Pterosaurs from the Kem Kem Beds are seen most commonly on the market, this is rather not due to an unusally high Pterosaur abundance, but rather because almost every Fossil is being collected at this locality. Currently, there are 4 named species from the Kem Kem Beds, but the actual number is far higher. The Named Taxa are Alanqa saharica, Xericeps curvirostris, Sirrocopteryx morrocanus and Coloborhynchus fluviferox. Some unnamed ones im allowed to talk about are the Kem Kem Tapejarid, a small Chaoyang
  21. Hi, All. The best I can do with this is simply put up the pictures and let wiser minds than mine (ie: everybody else!) take a look. I don't know what this is; it has tooth-like qualities, but I just can't get a handle on it. It would have come from the Agadez area of Niger, for what that's worth. Thanks for looking!
  22. Hello so could someone please explain the situation with sigilmassasaurus and spinosaurus was it the same dinosaur? was sigilmassasaurus bigger? Thanks

    Spinosaurus actual form

    So after following nizaar ibrahim's study in 2014 I learned that spinosaurus walked on four legs and it spend a lot of time in water being a good swimmer. But recently I saw that some new studies have been published and then some others and I have lost track so if someone could please inform me about the latest discoveries and tell me if spinosaurus was a good swimmer and if he walked on four it would be much appreciated.
