  1. Hello, any thoughts on this? It is sold as pterosaur remains--jaw pieces and a vertebra, from Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco. From the Cretaceous--unfortunately from an old German collection, so the information is limited. 240mm x 105mm Now, I think it is misidentified and is actually a bird--possibly Dasornis because on the first pic, the jaw has a long tooth and then a few of the smaller mini "teeth" which matches a drawing I found in a paper of similar birds, which I've also attached. If it's Dasornis or a bird, then that would mean it isn't Cretaceous in ag
  2. Howdy folks, me again with more silly beginner questions... I saw this video of a vampire bat running and wondered if pterosaurs - with their crutch-like folded wings - might have moved in a similar manner? Youtube: Vampire Bat on Treadmill I also saw this video of a Panda cub running. Might synapsids like Dinocephalians or Gorgonopsids - with those weird, “inturned” arms - have moved in a similar fashion? Youtube: Panda Bear Cub Running I’m guessing the answers to both of these questions is probably “no” - I would think that even a slight differ

    pterosaur tooth ?

    Yesterday i had time to hunt in Holzmaden. Some may realize that i posted this: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/69842-last-hunt-in-holzmaden-for-this-year/#comment-732544 Now this is my real last hunt in the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) ... I worked hard about 3 hours, but i cant find much and the material there doesnt look good. So i only find this item: This tooth looks very special ... Its 0.7 cm long (after prep 1 cm long), so it was difficult to photograph the tooth. It looks very similar
  4. Good evening everyone, Does anyone have an explanation why there are so many theropod teeth from Kem Kem available (Carcharodontosaur, Spinosaur) while there aren't way as many herbivore teeth being offered from that area? Shouldn't herbivores have outnumbered the theropods by a lot?

    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
  6. I’m currently in search of a fossil preparator who can repair/restore a broken pterosaur tooth. The other day I accidentally knocked a box of small fossils off of a shelf and several items broke. I’ve been able to glue most of the stuff back together with PaleoBond, with the exception of a ~2.5 cm pterosaur tooth (Kem Kem Beds, Morocco) that broke into two pieces, and the two piece don’t fit back together perfectly, Repair of the tooth would require filling relatively substantial cracks as well as painting. This is beyond my skill level, especially with such a small fossil, so I’m willing to p
  7. Hello! I have collected a large amount of material on marine reptiles. Origin - Cenomanian of Ukraine (phosphorite layer). After sorting through the material, I can offer 4 lots for trading. The first three are approximately the similar lots (small bones in phosphorites). 4th lot - also the bones of the Cenomanian, but mostly bony fish. If you are interested in such material, please contact me in PM. Have a nice evening

    Pterosaur tooth with root

    Hello all, Here is a rooted pterosaur tooth from the kemkem. It's 6.5 cm long and is from the Kemkem. Does anyone know if an exact species can be determined for this tooth?

    Pterosaur tooth or fish?

    Any idea on this tooth, labelled as pterosaur? No bigger pics available because of its small size. It is sold as a pterosaur tooth from the Solnhofen formation. It is only 3mm in length---much smaller than other teeth I see there and smaller than the tooth I have from there. Most pterosaur from there seem to be curved, whereas this is quite straight, which makes me think it's probably not a pterosaur. It's a really tiny tooth---3mm. Even smaller than the Bull Canyon pterosaur teeth, could be from a rarer type of pterosaur there? Most are sold as Rhmphorhynchus, but I see there are

    Noripterus?

    Any pterosaur experts able to ID an old Mongolian tooth? I've been looking into it and believe it could be Noripterus, going by the description of Noripterus been cone-shaped teeth and, the fish-based diet of Noripterus also fits conical teeth. It's an old collection tooth and seller doesn't have the formation, unfortunately, other than it being early cretaceous. I believe it might be from Tsagaantsav Formation which is one of the few formations I could find which fits the early Cretaceous age and has pterosaur remains found. Now, I personally haven't seen any teeth wh

    Alcione - Pterosaur humerus?

    Quite interested in this pterosaur humerus. It is described as Alcione -- From Morocco. The piece measures 16cm x 10cm The shape does seem to match another I saw posted here, but a more knowledgable view would be great. Many thanks
  14. Hello everyone, after browsing the internet i came across a very interesting private opalised fossil collection (http://andrestucki.blogspot.com/). In this collection there is various fossil specimens, however it has most notably AN OPALISED PTEROSAUR SPECIMEN!!! This specimen is the most complete opalised pterosaur i have ever seen as it includes a fibula and tibia, tooth, partial skull fragments as well as a possible wing imprint and internal details in the fossils. This specimen is beyond beyond rare and as you could imagine is extremely scientifically valuable. As of now i am t
  15. Here is something from last week's virtual SVP conference... my colleague and I made the news, and not for our use of banned words. https://www.livescience.com/pterosaurs-walked-in-rain.html?fbclid=IwAR0fn9ovHHOHdCcuc0P0tdYJNi0E7D_KULlPv7ajP2KngC-Yc4LMHaJ3asg

    Pterosaur teeth from Morocco

    What about pterosaur teeth from Morocco? I have see hundreds of these teeth, nice teeth with [inexpensive] price only. Other pterosaur teeth, for example ramphorynchus, cost [is very expensive]. Pterosaur teeth from kem kem beds of Morocco are very common fossil, but other pterosaur material from Morocco, i think not. I want to buy a tooth, but first to learn some facts.
  17. Hi, Wanted to ask if these two wing bones on matrix are Pterosaur if anyone can help confirm? It is from the Ouled Abdoun Basin in Morocco (I don't know if it is from the Maastrichtian deposits) and I am a bit unsure if they are Pterosaur or bird. One bone is 33cm in length & the other larger one is 43cm in length. If they are Pterosaur, do they look like it could be from an Azhdarchid Pterosaur due to the size? Thanks.
  18. Hello, I found this bone in the marine deposits of the Boulonnais, France. Upper Jurassic. I assumed it is a part of the jaw (snout) of a toothless ophthalmosaurus, which are abundant there (mainly vertebrae). However, this week I read the article about a toothless pterosaur jaw from the UK and saw some resemblance. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-54891483 I added the pictures of the bone, the pterosaur and an ophthalmosaurus for comparison. I am curious about your thoughts. Regards, Niels
  19. Hi all This may have been discussed before so let me know if it has but I was interested to know if anyone had read this paper: Frey, Eberhard & Martill, David & Buchy, M.-C. (2003). A new crested ornithocheirid from the Lower Cretaceous of northeastern Brazil and the unusual death of an unusual pterosaur. Geological Society, London, Special Publications. 217. 55-63. 10.1144/GSL.SP.2003.217.01.05. And what their opinions were on it? Was the pterosaur death directly linked to the leaf or was the leaf an added biproduct during the fossilisation process

    Mystery Solnhofen Tooth!

    I saw this tooth for sale recently, labeled as Pterosaur from Solnhofen, the tooth seems way too thick to be pterosaur, any thoughts? I'm thinking it might be fish, but I have no idea.

    Another Kem Kem Pterosaur

    Unbelievable pterosaur diversity in this part of North Africa. This paper describes a unique small, long-beaked pterosaur from the Kem Kem Group of Morocco. Does not appear to be named. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303293

    Pterosaur Big Brook or broken bone

    So I've been meaning to put up a couple threads on this forum for a while now. I am really psyched about figuring this one out because i'm hoping its a {terosaur tooth! Its hard to Id because of a tip fracture, its hard to tell if its just a bone or what. Also I want to get this "coral" quartz rock ID'd and it is tied to another thread i'm making. Link here;

    Pterosaur Finger Bone?

    I've been doing a lot of exploration in the Grayson Formation (Lower Cretaceous) exposures south of Waco lately, and so last week I was doing some hunting on a nice marly slope in the South Bosque River. I picked up lots of pyritized heteromorph ammonites and some turritella, but what really caught my eye was this tiny piece of fossilized bone. I know that vertebrate material can be found in the Grayson - I've even found some nice Cretolamna and Ptychodus teeth myself - but this doesn't seem to be fish or shark. The walls of the inner cavity are extremely thin when you look at the cross sectio
  24. I have a couple riker boxes of a few dinosaur teeth. Nothing super high quality; I enjoy a variety of teeth and was on a budget so I never looked for the highest quality of teeth to buy. I'm happy with a nice representative sample of the animal. I've moved away from buying many specimens now as I'd rather go out and find my own at some point, but I bought these years ago and I'm very happy with the diversity they represent. Plus as I teach geology, they are great teaching specimens for the kids to. First up is my collection of Cretaceous North American teeth from Hell Creek

    Alanqa pterosaur beak?

    Saw this pair for sale, now they are sold as Alanqa but, I've seen some Alanqa beak fossils posted on here and they have a triangular shape to them, which makes me think these aren't Alanqa. Anyone able to help and let me know if they are pterosaur and/or which species they might be from, if it's possible to tell? Pictures -1 - 4 are of the first one. It is 1.5 inch Pictures 5 - 8 are of the 2nd is 1.1 inch Many thanks
