Triceratops frill ankylosaurus scute, raptor claw fossils


Recommended Posts

Hello let me start of by say you all are awesome! Amateurs like myself have got a lot more confidence because of the help you give us.  It was great day when I discovered this site :)

 

I had bought these a ways back and I was going thru my collection and it would be great to get an opinion if I these are what they were described as.

 

The "raptor claw" was the first ever fossil I bought! (Fingers crossed haha)  The COA said it was from the Taquiz, kasar-es-souk, region in Morocco.  I believe the seller told be the red lines we blood grooves? It was probably 10 years ago so I dont recall much else about the ad.

 

The other two were bought from the same seller, who did not have much reviews so I took a chance I guess.  He described them as a "tricertops frill spike" and an "ankylosaurus armor scute"  all i have regarding these ones is that is was found on private land in Wyoming in Lance creek formation...

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated! I tried to follow the posting etiquette sorry If I missed something.

 

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum! I believe the claw to be real but I can't speak for the other pieces.

The claw is not terribly curved, it could be a crocodile.  I don't think the "frill" piece is identifiable.... pure chunkosaur.  

 

It looks like your seller is grasping for IDs.  That is my opinion.

Yea I with jpc on this one.  The claw could be theropod and would lean more that way but there are a lot of Crocodyliforms from the Kem Kem that it could fit.  I would expect to see more vascular grooves on that frill piece to call it one.
