    Sauropod scute -- Kem Kem

    Hi, I saw this for sale and figured it'd be nice to display alongside my Kem Kem Sauropod teeth. But is it actually a dermal scute as described? I see a few others of these sold as sauropod scutes, but it just be a case of misidentification, so figured it best to check here. It is from Kem Kem. Sellers description says these are sold as scutes but that he hasn't seen any scientific papers describing them as such, so the ID could be wrong. Thanks

    Kem Kem Toe Bone

    Hi, Any thoughts on the ID of this? It is labelled as a theropod toe bone from Kem Kem. 5cm x 4. The preservation seems odd to me. Most toe bones sold from Kem Kem seem to be that distinctive yellowish orange color. Is the theropod ID right, or is croc/reptile? Thanks for the help

    Kem Kem Plesiosaur tooth?

    Hi, I am interested in this tooth---sold as Plesiosaur tooth from the Kem Kem Beds. First time I've seen one from Kem Kem sold before, but I see someone bought one recently in the "mailbox score" thread, but it looks different--lighter colored preservation. Anyone know if this is actually from Kem Kem going by the matrix and preservation and not from Ouled Abdoun with just the wrong formation listed? It is 5CM long. Also the tip---just repaired, or compositied? I'm a bit concerned that the top of the tip seems a little bit wider than the middle. But it coul
  4. Hi, A while back I asked about the identification of this theropod foot claw, but it is still for sale and I am thinking of buying it. I wanted to ask now, if anyone can see any sort of repair work done on this claw (such as with the tip of the claw?), the seller says there is no restoration and I can't see any repair work on it, but I am never too confident with dinosaur claws. Thanks.

    theropod bone to identify

    Hello Sorry, I'm rewriting this message in English. Considering the effectiveness of the responses to yesterday's post, I am submitting another one to you. Also found in the continental interlayer of the Kem kem plateau in Morocco. Bone density seems to be attributable more to a dinosaur than to a crocodilian ... A bone in a joint (carpus?). Does the shape of this bone inspire anyone? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  6. Bonjour Quel est donc cet os? La structure osseuse ressemble à celle des Mawsoniidae mais sans certitude. Quelqu'un est-il plus inspiré?
  7. Just bought these little beauties. Were sold as 'dromaeosauridae sp.' finger bones. Ad also named them deltadromeus. Now, I'm aware of the difficulties with ID'ing Kem Kem theropod but I like buying cheap-ish fossils and then trying to figure out what they really are. Part of the fun I guess. Total length of both bones is ~63mm. Not sure if the arrangement is correct, bones seem to fit well. They're small, which makes me wonder if they're theropod at all. Did look into deltadromeus, found the gualicho shinyae which might be the best reference point it seems. Bones do look like some of the

    A box with Kem Kem stuff

    I just recieved a box with a random assortment of Kem Kem fossils and I was wondering if some of you might help out with some of the ID's 1) A fish scute, Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii would be my guess. 2) Another Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii scale? 3) A small bone, turtle perhaps? 4) Crocodile osteoderm 5) Crocodile osteoderm 6) I often see similar fossil sold as Kem Kem coprolites 7) base of an Onchopristis num

    Moroccan Vertebrae

    I have here three vertebrae from the Kem Kem of Morocco sold as "Dinosaur or Crocodilian." Is there any way to identify which of these they belong to, and if so, can they be narrowed any further? Thank you, Bellamy First one is 1.5" long and 1.5" wide
  10. I recently acquire this tooth from Kem Kem basin , Morocco . size at 2 cm long . I think it look just like the Nigersaurus tooth from Paper publication attached below But as far as i know there is no Nigersaurus present in kem kem ?? or this tooth is just another sauropod indet. ? What do you think ? Best regard Guns
  11. Hello, I'm new to this forum. In the last months I have been involved in a project regarding North Africa spinosaurids.Because of the reduced data I have, I want to know if anyone could share photos of their specimens.Most of the specimens I need are presacral vertebrae and posterior cranial bones(including,if possible,a braincase). Also, any information in favour of a second morphotype could be really helpful;even though I have already treated this point, I want different opinions on this topic. Thanks a lot in advance to anyone.
  12. Hello, Can anyone take a look at this rib piece, please and give your thoughts? It is sold as a spinosaurus rib. It is from Kem Kem and measures 21 inchs x 3 inches x 1.9 inches (at it's widest points). Interestingly, it also has supposedly three predation marks which seller suspects was made by a Carcharodontosaurus. So, if someone can look and confirm that it's a spinosaurus and if they are predation marks as opposed to natural wear or damage with tools during extraction, that would be excellent. Seller also says that there are hairline stress fractures

    ilium from kem kem

    Hello fellow forum members, some time ago I acquired what I thought of as a theropod ilium from the kem kem . it just crossed my mind that it could be another kind of archosaur alltogether, maybe a crocodylomorph? What do you think? At the moment i can not take more pictures of it easily, but maybe one is enough? Thanks and regards, J

    Kem kem tooth, help!

    Hello, many years ago a bought this small tooth in a shop, at the time they told me it was a dino tooth, that it came from kem kem, and the child me was happy. Now after all these years I clearly know that this isn't a dino tooth, but anyone can help me identifying it? Maybe it's croc or pterosaur

    Moroccan Crocodile Tooth

    I have a 1" dagger-shaped tooth from the Kem Kem. I bought it as a crocodile tooth. The way it's shaped I assumed it was a fish fang, but the enamel looks pretty much like a crocodile's. Here are the only photographs I have access to for the time; is it identifiable? Thank you, Bellamy

    Kem kem crocodiles

    Hi! I have a handfull of croc teeth from kem kem , and I would like to learn more about identifying these croc teeth. I know that it can be hard to id these teeth but I was wondering if someone got some papers where most of the discoveries of moroccan crocs are illustrated? , I´ve been trying to find some but with no luck, I just found some papers that only describes Elosuchus.

    Spinosaurus Vert Section

    Have some folks selling this as a Spinosaurus tail section at about 20” in length. As usual, it came from the Kem Kem area. I’m not seeing Spinosaurus myself. But I would love to hear from others on what they think. Thank you ahead of time! compressor.zip
  18. Hello to everyone, I bought this small spinosaurus tooth some days ago and I'm now wondering if it's real or not. The seller told me that it's non reconstructed but after seeing some stuff on this forum I'm not too sure to trust him. It comes from Kem Kem. Thanks to everyone!
  19. Hi everyone, I was recently offered this Giganotosaurus tooth. I was wondering if there was a way to distinguish it from carcharodontosaurus teeth from the kem kem beds? Or if anyone can share there opinion on this one, thank you.

    Tiny Kem Kem Claw

    Any thoughts on this? Unfortunately, given the small size, seller can't get much better photos, so I hope these two will do. It's sold as a dinosaur claw, but I think with these sorts of claws it's pretty difficult to tell whether croc, dino or something else. But if anyone has a thought, that would be great. Also, the first pic--the sort of crack going along the side from about halfway, is that a concern that it's restored/fabricated, or just a bog standard crack? I can't see similar on the other side photo, which makes me think it's just a minute crack. Also, as well
  21. So, this theropod tooth came in a lot of a bunch of other teeth I bought as part of a box lot of about 20 Kem Kem theropod teeth. Most of it was in pretty bad condition, and there wasn't really provenance attached to them, but I paid literally pocket change for them. But to get back on point, I wasn't sure if this was an Abelisauridae, or a Carcharodontosaurus, possibly an indeterminate theropod. My gut feeling is that it's an Abelisauridae, but I'm not sure, Abelisaurid teeth tend to be much more easily recognizable, and I have a lingering doubt on this one. Measurements are in centimeters.

    Kem Kem Croc bone

    Hello, This caught my eye. It's sold as a crocodile bone from the Kem Kem beds, but the fact it's hollow makes me think it might actually be theropod. Are croc bones hollow? It is 9 inches by 3.5 by 2.7.

    Tooth - Spinosauridae indet.

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Species: Spinosauridae indet. Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco Probably the most common dinosaur fossil available on the market, a Kem Kem Spinosaurid tooth. At least two spinosaurid species are known from Kem Kem; Spinosaurus aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis. As there are no known teeth of Sigilmassasaurus, comparisons between the two are impossible and determining the genus which the tooth belongs to is also impossible.

    Tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Species: Carcharodontosaurus saharicus Age: Cretaceous (Cenomanian), c. 95 million years ago Location: Kem Kem Formation, Morocco A lot of the enamel is missing, but an otherwise well-preserved tooth of Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, some would prefer labelling Kem Kem Carcharodontosaurid teeth as "Carcharodontosauridae indet." on account of Sauroniops pachytholus, but a 2020 study declared that it was likely synonymous with C. saharicus so I am comfortable with just referring to it as a tooth of Carcharodontosaurus.

    Kem Kem bone

    Here is another fossil I have trouble seeing how an ID was made, from Kem Kem in Morocco. This was sold to me as a bone from a Spinosaurus, but is this identifiable as coming from Spinsaurus or even a dinosaur at all? It's clearly from a quite large animal as it measures 7-8 centimetres (2.75-3.15 inches; depending on how you count) long and isn't even complete, so perhaps that is indicative of dinosaurian origin at least? Or could it possibly alternatively have come from one of the crocodylomorphs in Kem Kem? Is there anything about this that confidently places it as coming from a dinosaur? C
