  1. Excited to have found this little gem in the Post Oak Creek matrix. Question is.....Claw or Jaw? I have found some crustacean claws and while similar, the oblong indents are making me question. It looks very much like some of the Permian amphibian jaws. But that's really odd. So please, help me out! Jaw or Claw? Thanks for any info!! A couple of crab claws (that I am 99% sure of at least) from the same matrix. Has kind of similar texture, but different color. A Permian Amphibian jaw for comparison:
  2. Claw from HC South Dakota

    Hi all. I have a claw that I am considering. 1.75 inches. No restoration that I can see. Thanks in advance.
  3. Claw, fish bone?

    Picked this up in Venice Florida. I thought it was a barracuda tooth when I grabbed it, but after cleaning it I feel it's something different. Any thoughts? Thank you
  4. Claw?

    From Douglas Point, Maryland, I kept this because it looked like a claw, maybe turtle?
  5. Thoughts on this Anzu claw?

    Is the ID on this claw correct? It's labeled as a foot claw belonging to Anzu wyliei. Edit: It's about 2" long and is from the Hell Creek Formation, Montana.
  6. Permian Claw ID

    This claw was found in some micro-matrix I recently ordered, and I need help with a possible ID, I was thinking possibly Varanops or Edaphosaurus. It is advertised to be from the Ryan formation, now called the Wellington formation. The claw is just shy of one centimeter long
  7. What Type Of Claw Is This?

    Found this recently while looking for teeth. Looks like a good portion of it is broken off but it looks like it might be a claw to me. As usual, Dinosaur Park fm.
  8. Is this a Megatherium claw ? Just want to be sure before I make a purchase. It claims to have been found im Florida.
  9. Is it a tooth?

  10. Thescelosaurus claw

    Hello, Just wondering if this is as described? A thesc claw would go well with my teeth and vertebra. From Hell Creek. Thanks
  11. This fossil, found on a beach near Jensen Florida, is nearly about 2.125 cm. long, just under 1 cm. wide at its widest, and just under a .25 cm across. I'm thinking probably claw but maybe tooth. Thanks for your help.
  12. Paramylodon claw, which one?

    Hello dear forum members, Here I have a damaged sloth ungual supposedly from Paramylodon (see description in the last pic) Is it possible (for some of you) to determine which finger or toe it belonged to? That would be great. Thanks J
  13. Unknown claw

    Hi everyone, I am a very inexperienced fossil collector. I found this claw in my driveway among the gravel. I live near Austin, TX but I’m unsure where the gravel originated. Any ideas?
  14. Mystery dinosaur claw

    I I have a mystery claw possible turtle, gator or dinosaur from Hells creek. Measures 0.5cm. Need some assistance identifying, thank you!
  15. Mystery dinosaur claw

    Hi this is a mystery claw I got from Hells creek on Ant Hill. It’s about0.2 inches or 0.5cm long. I can include better pictures but there too blurry so I included the two best ones.
  16. Hi all - I am new to the group so please forgive me if I miss any information. I found this piece in question on a sandbar right off of Wallops Island, Virginia. I believe it is some kind of tooth or claw/talon. Unfortunately I am on vacation and left the piece at home. But I estimate it to be around 6 inches long (0.15 meters) and about 2 inches wide (0.05 meters). It has a little weight to it but still light. This was the best picture I had that shows the full piece and the root top.
  17. Hi Everyone, I've been working through quite a bit of shale from the Stark member and have a specimen I would like your thoughts on. My brain sees a crustacean claw due to the shape, but I think its more likely that it's a fin. What do ya'll think I have here? Dimensions are 1 cm by 1 cm. My "holding the phone camera to my microscope lens" method isn't working so well, so here's a rough outline of the shape: And the counterpart from the split Thanks,
  18. Tooth, claw, or something else?

    I need help with an ID. I am very new to this hunting and could use any help. I got both of these from Big Brook in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  19. Claw ID help please

    I recieved this claw a while back with no Identification or locality information. If I remember correctly it was said to come out of the Hell Creek formation in South Dakota. It is weather but still has some strong features. Does anyone have an idea on its ID? If I need to post more pictures I sure can.
  20. Dimetrodon? Claw?

    Hi, I’m considering buying this “dimetrodon claw” and was wondering if it is really a dimetrodon claw. It was found in waurika, Oklahoma, Ryan formation and is from the Permian. I’m not sure how big it is but it looks pretty small. TIA
  21. Milk river tooth/claw?

    A milk river, northern Montana Judith river formation find. Size of a dime - and these are about the best pictures I can get. Thought it was a raptor tooth at first, but the side looks claw ish. Or maybe just broken? Thoughts?
  22. Lee Creek Unknown

    Don't think I've ever seen a claw (other than crab) attributed to Lee Creek matrix, but could this be one? In person, it doesn't look like fish tooth or crab, so wondering what others think it might be. Not sure how well it shows in the photos, but It has a very prominent ridge running along its inner curve -- shown in last several pics. Scale is 1mm
  23. Hi all, this is my first time posting so please be gentle. I found this in my back yard and I am just looking for help with an ID. In Katy Texas, just west of Houston. It's small, less than 2" total but the fragment is around 1 inch. It's in a sandstone matrix (a couple of geologists told me it is "young" sandstone, whatever that means). I am new to Texas and not familiar with the history here. Based on Googling, it looks to me like maybe a Pleistocene-era alligator claw or possibly snapping turtle claw. It does not look like a tooth, alligator or otherwise. it has a groove running down the side (probably down both sides) and isn't really conical. the only ridge is on the outer/top part (the curved edge). Just curious about what it might be and hoping someone with more expertise can assist. Thanks in advance for any insights you may have!
  24. Kem Kem Claw and Phalanx

    Seller doesn't know what it's from beyond claw and phalanx from Kem Kem in Morocco. Price is pretty good, so it tempts me if anyone has any idea what it's from. I have seen these crop up as raptor claws or deltadromeus claws elsewhere--which to me seems more speculative putting a name to it than it actually being from one of those species. But if anyone knows anything, that would be great.
  25. Fossil ID

    So.... It's a rock from an abandoned house rock garden. I'm guessing a vacation find because we don't have these around here. It looks like a claw because the base is flat or straight across. About 3 1/2 cm. I can't offer much info on origin.
