    Mosasaur or concretion?

    Hey all, went to Big Brook yesterday and found some teeth here and there. One thing that caught my eye was this. I was wondering if I could get a second opinion. My thoughts are it could either be a Mosasaur tooth or simply a concretion that resembles one. The reasons I think it may be are that it is hollow, has some lines running down and is the correct shape. That being said I know there are many rocks in the creek that resemble fossils that are simply rock, as well as I could just be seeing something because I want to see something. If I could get an expert opinion that would be great!
  2. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

    North Sulphur River Trip

    Pictures from my latest NSR trip. Some mosasaur verts and bones, a jaw, ammonites, baculites, and of course the normal array of oddities. No really good verts but still fun. Does anyone know what jaw this would have come from? Also the turtle looking shell and the large white bone next to it feel a lot heavier than recent bone to me so maybe Pleistocene. Ill send a few close ups of those and of the crazier stuff later.

    Pluridens serpentis

    There is a new Moroccan Mosasaur described here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667121001294?via%3Dihub It is called Pluridens serpentis. I suspect pictures of it's skull may already have been shown on this thread under another identification. It is known from two skulls and mandibles.
  5. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry
  6. Found this for sale online. I don’t know if it is real or not, but I took a gambit and got it. Received it today and wanted to show you all. Jared
  7. Hey guys, I'm completely new to fossil collecting, so I have a question. I would be very grateful if someone could tell me their opinion, if this Mosasaur tooth is real or not. I thought maybe because of the one visible repair. Please let me know what you think! Thank you so much! Hendrik

    Mosasaur teeth identification

    Hi! Any help I can get with identifying these mosasaur teeth would be much appreciated , or if someone can provide me with some good links/pictures on how to identify them. They are all from Khouribga phosphate mines. They are small teeth ( 20-30 mm) and not in top notch condition but still it would be fun to know what kind of species they belong to. I´ve numbered the teeth to make it easier to describe what tooth your talking about. Thanks/Patrik

    Big Brook NJ Tooth??

    Hi, found this at Big Brook NJ and trying to determine if it's possible a Mosasaur or Croc tooth or stone/other. It's about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2" long. Thanks for any info!
  10. 10 hr North Sulphur River Texas hike with friends. I found a little bit of everything. Mosasaur, Xiphactinus, Pleisosaur, Mastodon, Horse, Coral and cool antiques.
  11. I need help. WHAT IS THIS? It is being sold as a Moroccan mosasaur tooth and jaw section. I suspect the jaw part probably comes from the phosphates and is genuine mosasaur, but is the tooth, spinosaurid? If this is a fake, it is a much higher quality fake than normal. The change in texture at the base of the crown is suspicious, though. I’d like to hear some of your opinions. Thanks.
  12. Fun trip to the North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the giant coprolite and Holmesina armadillo scute. @GeschWhat
  13. Got a little luck on Easter/Birthday. Finally found a good sized Mos vert. I’m assuming it’s a Tylo? ozan form 80-85 mya

    Ramanessin Bone Fragment?

    Out hunting on the Ram, came across this odd piece, my mind immediately jumped to a bone fragment of a large aquatic reptile, the holes in it are like nothing I've ever seen, and it feels lighter than a rock of similar size. So, I'm hopeful, any ideas or help would be awesome! Thanks guys!

    Mosasaur or croc?

    Hi all, I recovered this split tooth from Big Brook park in Monmouth, NJ (late cretaceous). I've checked a couple websites that give information on Big Brook, and I can't conclude either way if it is mosasaur or croc (or similar to a croc). I included close-ups to show enamel, and held it to show the shape of the tooth towards its root. Thanks, Steve

Pleisosaur partial girdle, silver spoon, artifacts, xiphactinus tooth, mosasaur verts, old door knob, enchodus jaws, old hard hat, old bottles, ammonite, exogyra and my first crocodile scute.
