  4. Hi all, Here is another fun find from Sacha's Merritt Island matrix. As usual, I don't have a clue as to what kind of tooth it is (or maybe it's a claw?). The area around the base of the tooth reminds me of something you'd see at the base of an antler. Sorry parts of the specimen are a little blurry in the photo. It was hard to decide what part to focus on. I looked up every carnivore I could think of and came up with nada. Any help would be greatly appreciated! As a side note, I would like to extend a special thanks to Julianna, Marco Sr, Tony, and PA Fossil Finder for posting all your wonderful photos. It is super helpful!
  5. Found these today in N Central Arkansas - any thoughts?
  6. Does anyone know where to buy a raptor killing claw and how much they cost? I've tried searching it it on google and ebay, but the only thing that comes up is replicas
  7. Is This A Claw?

    I was on a family trip in Missouri. We were staying on Table Rock Lake in the Ozarks, and I stumbled upon what appeared to be fossilized bones. I am by no means an expert, and I'll be the first to admit that my imagination is very active, but I can't shake the feeling that this is something very interesting. As I was rifling through the pieces, I found what appears to be a hooked claw, though I am trying to remain sceptical. It's not in great shape, and is broken in pieces, but if it turned out to be a claw, that would be very exciting. I would greatly appreciate any help in identifying this piece. Thanks!
  8. I will not mention the name of this seller.... One of my Moroccan sources have highlighted to me the presence of fake dinosaur claws on Ebay at the moment. In fact, he claims to have even visited the house of the man that made the fake fossils. Here are some pics from this scam seller. "Exceptional" Spinosaurus toe claw, 5.90 inches "Exceptional" Carch tooth with root, 5.31 inches "Exceptional" Spinosaurus foot claw, 5.59 inches ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's some real ones for comparison. Spino claw. Rooted Spino tooth (I know it's not carch, notice how the end doesn't taper into a whale tooth-like root)
  9. Dino_Bird Claw...or Something Else?

    Hello TFF! I have another(I think interesting) undetermined fossil set from the "Snail hill",Vidra locality,Romania.I found these fossils at a second site not far away from the first,dated cretaceous/senonian. Please help ID these. Thank you. Set1 Set2 Set3
  10. I Need help identifying this fossil i found near Davison Michigan. This item may have came from elsewhere due to me finding it in a GUTTER on a house! at a landscaping facility. To me it looks like a claw or toe. i was looking at the fossils of sea creatures first but the lines in the item appear to run front to back not side to side. most others that see this think a toe/claw of some sort. Really neat item, just wanna try to put a name to it. Thank you
  11. Lobster Arm? Big Brook, Nj

    Another find from big brook, NJ I'm thinking lobster arm part.
  12. Claw Or Tooth

    I found this in rural Manatee County (southwest) Florida. It is approx. 6 cm from the tip to base. 3.5 cm wide and 3cm tall. The inside has a groove that appears may be from the upper teeth rubbing against it???
  13. Dinosaur Claw Maybe?

    A few weeks a go we picked up a fossil on the beach at Sutton on Sea, Lincolnshire, UK, (TF 521534 81641). With recent bad weather a variety of off shore sea bottom debris had been thrown up, some partial fossil shells and mainly empty shells. This beach often yields fossils, usually belemnites, ammonite fragments and bivalves. Most have come from Yorkshire via southern longshore drift or from glacial clays on shore in Lincolnshire or close inshore. As far as we can tell this one is a dinosaur claw but this is so far out of my comfort zone that I need outside confirmation. At first I thought it might be a carnivore tooth, possible from the deposits on the North Norfolk coast but the profile is wrong and comparing it to photos of teeth from wolverine, wolf, tiger and lion it just doesn't look like any of them. The tooth/claw is 52mm long, tri-lobate in section at the thick end tappering to a blunt point. The point is worn off and shows a hole which may or may not have been present at deposition, its difficult to tell. The broad end appears to be broken off and shows a section of the tooth/claw. The outside is coated with a hard, translucent layer that looks like animal claw material, about 0.5mm thick and mottled fawn and brown. Examination with a hand lens shows that the surface is covered in a series of concentric rings running round the trilobate section and concentric towards the pointed end, almost like growth rings. Part of the outer covering is missing towards the pointed end. The centre appears to be filled with a dark, hard, amorphous material with a lighter colour core. The photos show a general view of the specimen, the broken section and a close-up of the surface showing the concentric rings
  14. Need Help With Id, Possible Claw?

    Hello! I just joined the forum after trying to find some info on something I found today while metal detecting the beach in Va. I was on the bay side, in the water when this little baby ended up in my scoop. I found a sharks tooth in the same area afew months back so I'm always looking for other interetsting items (other than the metal ones I'm digging) while out prowling the beach. Here are a bunch of pictures that I hope will help.
  15. Missouri Claw?

    Hello, i am very new to this but i have recently found something that i think looks possibly like a claw fossil but i don't have much knowledge about this so i wanted to see what anyone else thought... found in monroe county missouri, at mark twain lake. found in a creek bed that i have found geodes and other marine type fossils. (sorry, i don't have a clue about the time periods...) this creek is a feeder creek for the lake, flow is usually year round, when lake is up it is covered, has good flow during stong water events. size is maybe 1 1/2 inches for the part that looks like the claw i know that missouri has many marine fossils but i have searched around and haven't found anything about claws from anything. Thanks!!
  16. Possible Large Claw/tooth?

    Hello everyone. My Flatmate found this fossil in a wood in North East France. Can anybody help identify what it is and what it may be from. Its roughly 24 centimeters in length. It seems to have a "blood groove" running from bass to tip. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Regards,
  17. Greetings! Ive had these fossils for quite a while now. Wish I had more info other than it was found in Manitoba, Canada. If you need better pictures I can email more detailed shots but the forum has a size limit. If nobody can identify is there a possible museum I could send them into for analysis?
  18. Hi, I am a new member and was wondering if anyone could positively ID these fossils and fragments. I found them in South Carolina while digging for Meg teeth. I really don't know, but they resemble: 1. femur tip? 2. finger bone? (bird, raptor?) 3. talon? 4. beak? 5. wing imprint? fin? 6. tooth unknown? 7. tooth unknown? Any and all info would help. I am enjoying the forum and thanks to all the members!

  20. Tooth Or Claw?

    This was found in Florida last month. Can you tell me what it is?
  21. Claw, Two Tusks, And A Molar . . . ?

    Does anyone have any ideas what animals these might be from? They were all found recently on Edisto Beach, where Miocene and Holocene marine fossils are found mixed in with Pleistocene land vertebrate specimens. I have no idea on the one that appears to be a claw, as it seems to be too straight to be a bear, and too pointed for anything else I could think of. It has no groove on the back, but rather a bit of a ridge, and is otherwise round. BTW, I gave the claw the "bite" test, and it definitely feels more like rock than bone. If not more specific, I was wanting to know if the molar is indeed from a herbivore, or if it could possibly be a back tooth of a carnivore. The two tusks(?) appear to be from the same kind of animal, ??
  22. I found this piece on the beach at Pauanui in New Zealand. I have no clue what it is. I've very curious about it for a while now and decided to try and find out what it is. Needless to say I am new to this! Tried looking up all sorts of things to find a photo of something similar but have come up with nothing. Help would be much appreciated!

  25. Claw

    Hi I'm new here and I inherited some rocks from my brother who passed last year. This one stood out. It looks like a claw and is slightly less smaller than the size of my hand. My brother was an avid spelunker in the 80's and this would probably be from western Massachusetts. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
