  1. My collection got quite shaken up. So from here on now I will be posting my updated collection and the additions that will be added in the future. Here is one of my crown jewels, Spinosauridae indet. tooth 6.50 inches Kemkem Basin, Morocco
  2. When I caught wind of @jnoun11's traveling exhibit coming to Canada, British Columbia of all places, I made sure to book it down to the Vancouver Aquarium immediately! It was the most incredible display of Moroccan fossils I have ever seen and far greater than any permanent museum galleries! Of course I spent most of the time at the mosasaur section, finally getting the chance to see the marine reptiles I work on fully reconstructed in all their glory! The best part was seeing the species of mosasaur @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon @Praefectus and I named on display for the whole world! Such a great feeling! The skull of Hainosaurus boubker stood proud along side Thalassotitan atrox and the skeletons of Mosasaurus beaugei, Halisaurus arambourgi and Zarafasaura oceanis (plus some turtles). The murals in the back illustrated the diverse community of the phosphates in an active, warm sea environment which made you feel like you were right there swimming with them! The info boards were great and very informative with a fun "Monster Level" gimmick to show how fierce these predators where in their environments and times! Unfortunately Hain and Thalass were still under their pre-2022 names of Tylosaurus and Prognathodon anceps (plus using their smaller size estimates) which hopefully one day will be updated. I purchased a seasons pass just to revisit this display several times this summer while it is still around! Here are some photos of the mosasaur section (plus Spinosaurus) I took with my good camera!
  3. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus tooth on auction today and wondered If there are any signs of repairs on it that might end my decision buying it, if I wont find anything at the Hamburg fossil and mineral convention on Saturday. I quite like this tooth, its big, chunky, got some nice colours, and I love the overall look of it. Its not perfect, there are some small, not glued or repaired cracks that appear to have formed during the fossil forming procces. Sice : 11,2 cm Formation : Kemkem beds, morocco @Phos_01, @North, @FB003, @jpc, @JorisVV
  4. Hello, I saw this rooted moroccan Spinosaurus tooth with root on auction today and wondered how much of it is real. It appears like its real, but was glued back together multiple times pretty badly. Should I avoid it ?
  5. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus tooth on auction today and wondered If the root on it is real, fake, or composite. Looks definetly weird, if there was a big area filled with plaster or something like that. But like if there was also some pieces of real bone used in it. Avoid, or not avoid, thats the question here...
  6. From the top of the picture, in order. Globidens simplex Squalicorax sp. Siroccopteryx moroccensis Carcharias sp. Elrathia kingii Keichousaurus hui Fossil that I forgot species (I'll ask where I bought it later and write it down) Spinosaurus aegyptiacus Cosmopolitodus hastalis Mosasaurus beaugei Prognathodon currii Cave Bear(Ursus spelaeus) For me, an ordinary Korean high school student, it was a very big challenge. My fossil collection #2 will coming soon when I collected many fossils more!
  7. I recently bought a Spinosaurus tooth from a fossil shop on the Rocky Moutains. I noticed this little ridge on both sides of the tooth. I looked at some pictures on the internet and im inclined to beileve that its from the premaxilla. Supposedly the teeth from the premaxilla are pointed with sharp edges on both sides. Could this tooth be one of those? Note that there is feeding wear on the tooth.
  8. Hi Everyone! I have this Spinosaurus tooth in my collection that may look nice if I was able to clean it. Any recommendations? I have never cleaned a tooth before and any tips would be welcome.
  9. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!

    Some paint added

    Aloha. here are two 3d printed models I showed before. The Turtle is selfmade, the Spino not so. I took the time to paint them and quite like the result. Pondered to give the Spino the reddish colour one often sees with fossils from kem kem, but decided rather to colour the "matrix", which is in fact a piece of treebark. Best regards, Jan
  11. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus claw on auction today and wanted to know if its partially real or a complete fabrication. Sice : 5,2 inch It was apparently found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. @Phos_01
  12. Hello everyone I've been offered this sacral vert from the kem kem formation. The seller said its from a spinosaurus. He said he was told by one of his follower who was a paleontologist that this sacral vert was from spinosaurus and he said that he also did a bit of study to confirm that it was from spinosaurus. I think the paleontologist used the 2 sacral vert from the destroyed holotype for comparison. The seller also said that there were no restoration done on this fossil
  13. Hello everyone! Ive been offered this "jaw section" from what the seller said is a spinosaurus. Is this true? Or is it a spinosaurus tooth composited in random piece of bone? This jaw section was found in the kem-kem formation.
  14. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus tooth on auction today and wondered If its real or fake. I love the clean root on it and the sice, but im not sure about the tip tho. Looks "painted" and if it was broken off once and reglued back later. Whats your overall opinion on this tooth ? Sice 11 cm It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. @Phos_01, @FB003, and @North

    Unlabelled spinosaurid tooth

    I found this unlabelled tooth I believe to be a spinosaurid. I only have one photo. I am deciding whether to buy it or not.

    Spinosaurus tooth ?

    Hello, I saw this "Spinosaurus" tooth from morocco for sale a couple of weeks ago, and im really interested in buying it. I have never seen so clearly visible and big serrations on Spinosaurus teeth, thats why I wondered if its really one. Sice, 5 cm It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. (Edit : while I was writing this, the tooth got sold Looks like if I wont get it for my collection)
  17. Some of the nicer fossils from Morocco that I own. Let's start! - Set of nice spinosaurus teeth. Found in the same tunnel and layer. Only some meters away from eachother. 11 and 10.8 centimeter KemKem group, Morocco - Hainosaurus Boubker jaw pieces (dentary + snout) associated from an adult specimen. Really rare. Sidi Chennane, Oued Zem Morocco - Huge 10.6 centimeter carcharodontosaur crown with neat orane/brown like colors. KemKem group, Morocco - Set of 35 associated Otodus Obliquus teeth. Biggest one measures 8CM. Took a while to find one. El Khourigba, Morocco

    Unidentified jaw from morocco

    Hello, i saw this unidentified reptile jaw from morocco online today. Does anyone know to what it once belonged ? The tooth socket is oval, and the jaw seems to have had a little lip which now had eroded away. So Spinosaurus maybe ?
  19. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus jaw for sale today and wondered If its real or fake. It appears to be glued or a bit reconstructed and not very well preserved, but also looks a bit off to me (texture, shape) One small tooth is still in place, and suprisingly, it looks more genuine. But lets hear what you think about it. It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco.

    Spinosaurus bone

    Hello, i saw this Spinosaurus bone for sale today and wondered which bone it is, if its still identifyable. It kinda reminds me of a big vertebra fragment tho. It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. @Phos_01, because i know you as one of the Spino experts, migth you know the correct bone position and name ?
  21. Hello, i saw this fully rooted Spinosaurus tooth for sale today. The root seems kinda original, but there are some suspicious areas in it. But they do not cover completly around the tooth. Maybe some bad crack filling was done, what happend also visible on this tooth ? Let me know what you think about it !
  22. Brevicollis

    Spinosaurus premaxillary tooth ?

    Hello, i saw this weird Spino tooth for sale today, and started wondering, If thats a premax tooth, if Spino had any... Is it one, or how rare is it ? Sice : around 4 cm Found in : Kemkem beds, morocco
  23. Hello, i have this toe bone labeled as spinosaurus in my collection. But it seems kinda suspicious to me. Theres definitly real bone that matches the form, but some areas look like plaster or still covered whith a layer of matrix. Is it real and bad preserverd, 50/50, or a complete fake ? And is it even Spinosaurus ? Because Spinosaurus toe bones are very flat compared to this one.
  24. Hello, i saw this big Spinosaurus tooth on auction today and wondered, If the root is real and not a composed one. Obviously, a crack was filled, but thats OK for me, and everything else looks fine to me. The tooth Matches also whith the rooted one, seen in Troodon's guide. So would it be worth trying to get it, or should i stay far away from it ? Found in : Kemkem beds, morocco Sice : 12 cm
