  1. I not too long ago bought this piece. The seller told me it was an authentic Juvenile Basilosaurus jaw. But I am a bit worried it's not real since a lot of jaw parts can be casted or faked. Can anybody help me? Size is about 15CM

    Basilosaurid jaw section ID help

    Was looking for ID or any information on this Basilasouridae jaw section. It's a little over 7.5" long. It was found in the Samlat formation, Dakhla, Western Sahara. Thanks in advance!

    Basilosaur lower frontal jaw section

    Basilosaur(us?) frontal lower jaw seyction, from Boujdour, in Morocco. Hopefully the species can be distinguished with some more info

    Basilosaur frontal lower jaw section

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    Almost the entire frontal canine portion of the lower jaw of a Basilosaur. As you can see, the area where the absent front canines were, at the tip of the piece is visible, as well as where the missing last canines were situated. Although it was labeled as a Basilosaurus, I’m a little hesitant to consider that the case until I can personally corroborate the information. Apparently from Boujdour, I’m just having trouble finding information about which whales are, or are not found there, so until then I’ll leave it more open with just Basilosaur.

    Basilosaurus rear jaw with molars

  6. I watched a show on PBS last night, "When Whales Walked: Journeys in Deep Time." I just happened to notice it on the guide about 45 minutes before it was on. It is actually about more than the evolution of whales, the group having four-footed Early Eocene ancestors. There is a long segment roughly twenty minutes long each on crocodilians, birds, whales, and elephants. I thought it was a good show overall with interviews of researchers I know from their technical articles ( Hans-Dieter Sues, Philip Gingerich, Emmanel Gheerbrant, Christian de Muizon). However, each segment was also a little
  7. Hi! I made a small visit to the Natural History Museum in Maastricht today to visit the new small exhibition named "Whale: Locality Maastricht" which centers around some Eocene whale bones from an undescribed whale found in the ENCI quarry in Maastricht. The exhibition explores further into the evolution of whales, it's a small exhibition but worth a visit if you haven't seen the museum or if you are really interested in whale evolution. Should any of our Dutch, Belgian & German members decide to visit (or international members who are in the area), then you sho
  8. Hi. I’d appreciate some opinions on this Basilosaurus tooth? It’s a beautiful specimen but something feels off. I know it’s repaired. This is currently for sale in Edmonton Alberta. Annual show. I’ve obscured the prices as per forum rules? @Troodon@Boesse@Tidgy's Dad@Andy
  9. Hi everyone, Im looking at a bunch of stuff that someone got from the big fossil expo this month, but I want to be sure of what is what before I do anything. There's a few things way beyond what I could potentially get, but I'm just curious about in general. These are all Moroccan, and most, if not all, are Kem Kem. are these first 4 pics spinosaur? With the teeth I know the 2 on the top&left are probably carchar teeth, but I'm wondering about the other 2. In the 2nd picture, I'm guessing the right one is a spinosaur vert, right? What about the other one? I'm sure it
  10. I purchased a unsightly Franken-Basilosaurus tooth a few weeks ago for pretty cheap. Seeing as though i don't have $400-700+ to spend on a nice basilosaurus tooth i saw potential and a fun project in this cheap ugly duckling. Yes, it's Moroccan. It came with the typical glue/sand mix covering it, filling all cracks, voids and roughing out transitions of deceptive franken composites. How it came: Ok, first things first. Clean it. I used acetone, a razor, a needle, a tooth brush and my engraver. Hours o

    Largest basilosaurus tooth

    Does anyone know how large basilosaurus canines can get? I don't know if they're all technically canine teeth, but I'm referring to the 4 to 5 single-point front teeth. Crown & root together.

    Basilosaurus? Zygorhiza?

    Any ideas? These are the only 4 pictures. I don't know if the back was lost pre or post fossilization.
  14. Hi all. I am currently looking for a genuine Basilosaurus tooth. Problem is, the market is too heavily saturated with other Archaeocetes like Dorudon or Zygorhiza. As far as I understand, if a tooth comes from Western Sahara of Morocco, and is over 10cm in length including root, there's a chance it could be cf. Basilosaurus isis. Here I have several candidates. Tooth A - 6 inches in length Tooth B - 5.5 inches in length Tooth C and D - 6 inches along the curve Is there any way I can positively ID out a Basilosaurus tooth? Do any of these 4 teeth look like one?

    Basilosaurus molar still attached

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    Basilosaurus isis molar(one side serrated, the other side smooth)still embedded in a small piece of jaw bone. sadly I don't have any information about the fossil other than it is B.isis, and was found in Egypt.

    Tooth for ID. Basilosaurus?

    I saw this tooth on an auction site for relatively cheap. Do you know what it is from? The tooth is from Dakhla, near Morocco. I was thinking Basilosaurus.Any thoughts? Worth considering? What do you think?

    American basilosaurus

    American basilosaurus fossils were so common they started making furniture out of their bones. So why do they not show up anywhere???? It's only the African ones around. Anyone know anything about that furniture? And what happened to all the American basils??? *weird little factoid I think is cool. They're not 100% sure basilosaurus had a tail fluke/fin at all. I think its safe to say they definitely did, but there's never been any actual proof. No signs of a fluke have ever been found. again, I don't believe for a moment that they didn't have a tail fluke, I just think it's intere
  18. Hello. I'm currently working on a basilosaurus sketch as a project. The sketch is based off of Basilosaurus cetoides. I wanted to add a few fish to liven up the whole drawing, but I'm not familiar with late Eocene fish from the U.S. east coast. Would anyone be able to help me out?
  19. I've found a couple of listings of archaeocete teeth frags from Harleyville, South Carolina on a fossil seller. I know that Basilosaurus cetoides, Zygorhiza kochii, and Dorudon serratus all exist in this area, with a couple of examples of all three having been found there (now in Charleston Museum collection). However, is there a way to differentiate between them when it comes to teeth, specifically incisors? Some images of the listings are below. First tooth measures 2.6 inches. Second tooth measures 2.2 inches, but is a frag so I imagine that it may be much bigger if restored. Th
  20. Hello, I was wondering if this tooth, is a composite of two teeth. What do you think?

    Basilosaurus Tooth?

    Any opinions on this tooth? Found in Yazoo County, Mississippi. It was found in a small creek approximately 1/2 mile into the hills from the delta. It measures 2 & 3/4" in length.
