  1. Hi, I'm a new member to this forum and new to fossils. I'm trying to learn to distinguish the numerous fakes from real fossils and while searching the web, luckily I found your forum which has many open topics about it. I apologize if my English is not perfect, but I am Italian and I will try to explain myself as best as possible. Given my obsession with dinosaurs, I recovered this Carcharodontosaur tooth. Being quite large, 3.54in., and having bought it at an auction from a private collector at a fairly low price, I was wondering if in your opinion it could be a fake or restored. I already tried with acetone to see if any surface color came off, but it remained intact without loss of color. Weighs 80g (0.176lb). The description reported the usual origin from Morocco, Hamada KemKem area. Could you help me understand if it's natural or not please? Unfortunately I discovered your forum after the purchase, I will not make the same mistake for future purchases. Thanks so much to anyone who can help me
  2. Hello, I saw this interesting piece on an online auction site today, and the ID seems to be absolutely wrong. Its listed as a Carcharodontosaurus tooth from northern africa, but it doesnt even look like a tiny bit of one. When the formation and ID wrong are, its going to be hard to identify it just from pictures, but maybe someone will have an idea.
  3. Hello, I saw this Carcharodontosaurus jaw on auction today and wondered If its real or fake. Carch jaws seem to be incredibly rare on the market, so I think that many of the ones you see are fake. But this one looks genuine to me. Can someone maybe identify, if its lower or upper jaw? It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. Thanks !
  4. Hi. I am about to get this tooth delivered and I showed an image to a fellow member of the forum, and they recommended I put it here, as they felt something was off.
  5. Hello, i saw this Carcharodontosaurus tooth for sale today, and wondered If the root is real and belongs to It. I dont see anything wrong on it, but maybe you guys see something ive overlooked. Thanks !
  6. Hi! This is a 19MM rooted theropod tooth from the KemKem group. Sold as an Abelisaurus. But would it be possible to be a Baby rooted Carcharodontosaurus tooth? Not sure.

    Any chance for chenanisaurus ?

    Hello , I have this tooth in my collection . Its labeled as Carcharodontosaurus tooth but i think its too thick for one . Now I saw a Chenanisaurus tooth which is significantly smaller but it matches very well with my tooth. Is there any chance for it beeing a Chenanisaurus tooth ? It was found in morocco , where exactly is unknown to me It is from the late cretaceous period .

    T-Rex or Carcharodontosaurus ?

    Hello everyone, I'm new here, and I need some help. I have this T-Rex tooth in my collection, and thought it looked like a Carcharodontosaurus tooth. Are these Carcharadontosaurus teeth, or are they T-rex teeth, perhaps found somewhere in Texas?I saw a T-rex. tooth that was in Texas, and those teeth looked pretty similar. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on where they were found, so I wanted to ask if anyone has any ideas on how they identified them, or if anyone knowis if T-rex was also found in Texas. Thanks! Hallo zusammen, ich bin neu hier und eure brauchen Hilfe. Ich habe diese T-Rex-Zähne in meiner Sammlung und dachte, dass sie wie eine Carcharodontosaurus-Zähne aussieht. Sind das Zähne von Carcharodontosaurus oder sind es die Zähne von T-Rex, die vielleicht irgendwo in Texas gefunden wurden? Ich habe einen T-Rex-Zahn gesehen, der in Texas war und diese Zähne sahen ziemlich ähnlich. Leider habe ich keine Informationen darüber, wo sie gefunden wurden, also wollte ich fragen, ob jemand eine Idee hat, wie man sie identifiziert hat, oder ob jemand weiß, ob T-Rex auch in Texas gefunden wurde. Danke!

    Carcharodontosaurus teeth

    guys, I recently browsed through some Carcharodontosaurus saharicus teeth online and found a situation that I didn't quite understand. Their teeth are often described as like daggers, very thin and very sharp. and why can we still see some teeth marked as Carcharodontosaurus saharicus teeth, they are thicker, and they look a bit like tyrannosaurids from the anterior serration view. Why are their teeth different in morphology? Does it depend on different tooth positions?
  10. Hi guys, I’ve just been saved from a fake spino claw thanks to this site 🙏🏼 however I was wondering if teeth which have the enamel on and aerated edges are possible to fake? I actually believe the seller has bought from Morocco and been scammed himself with the claw but perhaps not the tooth?

    From the album: Dinosaur Teeth

  12. I believe this belongs to a Carcharodontosaurus, but the seller says it's not. Any opinions from you all?
  13. I've had this carcharodontosaurus premax for a number of years, infact, it was the first dinosaur fossil I ever knowingly aquired. I was looking at a worn down ridge on it and thought that it might be double serrated. Am I correct?
  14. I'm trying to expand my collection by buying a tooth of Carcharodontosaurus (or rather of Carcharodontosauridae, as far as I understand it is impossible to understand the species with 100% accuracy). So I'm inspecting some sites of reputable and trustworthy sellers, but still I'm always afraid of finding heavily reworked or restored teeth. I'm not convinced by the root: authentic? completely artificial? restored?
  15. Good moring. How's the teeth of carcharodontosaurus? Is that real? Thank you.
  16. Hello I recently came across this rooted carcharodontosaurus tooth, as always the suspicion is that the root is from another tooth and was placed next to this one. But I need help confirming my hypothesis, what leaves me in doubt is that some tooth cracks extend to the root. Could anyone help me figure out if this tooth is a fabrication?

    Carcharodontsaurus vertebral

    Hello, I bought a fossil advertised as a Carcharodontosaurus vertebra fossil. Do you think it is Carcharodontosaurid? I'm translating so the sentences may be strange. Thank you
  18. Just purchased this partial vertebra. It's described as a dorsal vertebra probably belonging to a Carcharodontosaurid or maybe an Abelisaurid. Location: Taouz, South Morocco Geological Formation: Ifezouane Fm Age: Upper Cretaceous, Cenomanian stage Size: 18cm I know it's probably hard to ID exactly since it's not complete, but any opinions?
  19. About three years ago I bought this footbone. The seller said it's a footbone of a Carcharodontosaurus. But is it realy? It was found in the Kem Kem beds (Marocco). If it's not a Carcharodontosaurus what could it be? Thanks in advance for the help! - Mike
  20. Good morning all, unfortunately yesterday my Carcharodontosaurus tooth broke in half. It broke when I put the tooth in it´s Riker box and the glass pressed on the tooth. I have not been able to sleep all night. Please, can you tell me which product to use to fill the fracture? See attached photos.
  21. According to the owner/ seller, he showed his fossils from somewhere. And he marked them as the Phalanges of Spinosaurus and the Phalanges of Carcharodontosaurus. My question is, how do he classify them? For me, they are totally same. Would you share the knowledge about this part to me, please? Thank you. The pictures are following, Phalanges of Spinosaurus Phalanges of Carcharodontosaurus
  22. I saw this tooth for sale and it looks like it has restoration on the yellow batches, however seller strongly believes there are no repairs nor restorations, want opinions on whether you think it has restoration.
  23. Hello, I have a question about the authenticity of a tooth. All 4 teeth are carcharodontosaurus teeth. Normally I know only brown to reddish teeth. The tooth on the left side is 8 cm big and in my opinion rather white. Is this a coincidence or a fake? Thank you very much
