45 Unidentified Dinosaur, Reptile & Fish Vertebrae - Kem Kem Beds

This is a lot of 45 unidentified, fossil vertebrae from the Late Cretaceous, Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. There vertebrae range from .3 to 1.95" long and represent a mix of small dinosaurs, reptiles, and fish. There are a few really nice vertebrae in the low with the entire process attached with look like small theropods.

This is a really nice lot for some that enjoys doing research and identification. If identified and sold individually these vertebrae would fetch many times the price of the lot. They've just been sitting on the shelf and we don't have time to do the research so we are selling them as a lot.

The Kem Kem Group is famous for yielding a diverse, Late Cretaceous, vertebrate assemblage including fish, reptiles and dinosaurs such as Spinosaurus. These fossils are found in a thin bed that outcrops around the edge of a large plateau near Taouz, Morocco. Local miners collect these fossils by digging narrow tunnels by hand into this plateau following the layer.

A paper on this assemblage can be found at: Vertebrate assemblages from the early Late Cretaceous of southeastern Morocco: An overview
