  1. I have recently found this forum and have been going through various posts. All very interesting but now has me questioning everything I own. I have been able to identify everything as real or fake except the dreaded Spinosaurus claw. It is something I have gotten years ago and I keep going back and forth on it so I need you expert opinions on it. It weights about 77 grams if that helps.
  2. Already purchased it but if it's fake I will cancel the sale. Thanks in advance for the help everyone!! I wasn't aware how many fakes were out there of this stuff.. Lots of crappy people out there..

    ID Moroccan herbivore claw

    Hi everyone, I recently stumbled upon a dinosaur claw from the Kem Kem formation in Morocco. It dates to the Late Cretaceous. By the flat bottom and lack of a sharp point it clearly belonged to a herbivore. I am aware that there is very little documentation on fossils from this area, especially wen it comes to herbivores. Yet I was wondering of someone might know to what (general) species or family this claw could belong. Similar claws from other geographical areas are more then welcome as well for reference. Note: the scale bar in the photo is in centimeters,

    One more small claw from Hell Creek

    Hi @Troodon, I've got one more for you. It's from the Hell Creek formation, Power River co, Montana. It's 7/8" long, but might have been more like 1.5" long if complete, since the point looks like it'd get very slender and long. Potentially with left blood groove swinging up around the top. (The blood grooves are very asymmetrical in trajectory.) Thanks!

    hi,everyone I saw this claw. The seller's label is Tyrannosaurus Rex claw. I want to hear some opinions, because I am interested in it. thanks

    Bird Claw Florida?

    Hello, Can anyone identify what this claw is from? It's said to be from a North Florida river and perhaps Miocene in age. I'm guessing it's bird at least.

    Tooth or claw?

    2.3 inches long. Found at my home in Alexander NY
  14. Not sure what this is could not find my measuring tape but am estimating it to be about a little longer than an inch.
  15. Hi, I would like to buy this fossil, but I don’t know if it is a real fossil because I am not expert, it is a spinosaurus claw. can you please help me ? thank you very much
  16. Hello, thoughts on this Spinosaurus claw, please? The color looks very odd to me--usually, claws I see for sale are more of a sandy color. But then--given the fact there are a lot of faked spino claws out there, I figure I can't really go with what I spot online. Also--the mosmatyched colors--some light bits, some dark bits. Finally--the structure of the claw is very rough. Much rougher than other claws I see online. Also--when I look at the groove, it's very rough and jagged. Not a smooth shape. I would appreciate others thoughts.

    Found in Hidalgo County NM and under about 6 inches of soil. Help is appreciated.
  19. Hi all, I picked up a Lot of 15 fossils and one very large whale vertebrae at an auction recently. Sadly it had all been treated as junk and several fossilised teeth had been broken, one tip lost, no identification or history attributed to the items. I find it quite sad when a fossil survives for 100+ million years in nature then gets wrecked immediately in someone’s care because it doesn’t make as much money as a pair of earrings . Anyway, going off topic... so I have this group of unloved fossils - teeth, vertebrae, bone - which I will probably never be able to fully identify. Amongst th
