  1. Spinosaurus claw. Morocco, Erfoud region.
  2. Seller thinks most likely to a T-rex. Found near the Hell Creek Formation.
  3. I can't tell do i have here. Looks good to me. Seller says species not confirmed, possible deltadromaeosaurus.
  4. Unidentified Oddities

    I have found numerous pleistocene period bones on river sand bars in central Iowa. Here are a few unidentified bones I am asking for help identifying. #1 sure looks like bone but I have no idea what it is. I would say fish except for the bone characteristics. #2 is a small digit bone and has some age. I have not found anything like it at that size in my google searching. #3 is also bone and does not have the look or texture of an exposed claw. You can see where another bone connects. #4 I do not know what animal this is but it appears to be an old bone that my wife unearthed along the river. Thank you so much!
  5. Crab claw, maybe? - Myrtle Beach

    Myrtle Beach find. Thoughts? Haven't found one of these before, at least not fossilized. Looks like little white crab claws I've picked up from time to time.... It's hollow.
  6. Hello, fellow Fossil Forum members. Last summer I found this bone fragment in Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, Texas. The fossils from the upper Texas coast are from the very late Pleistocene Beaumont formation. At first, I didn’t think anything of it, other than it just being a bone fragment. But now I’m thinking it might be a very worn down claw core from some animal. But I’m not sure, it could just be a plain old bone fragment. So let me know your thoughts on this specimen. Front view- Specimen measures 30 mm (1.2 inches) long side view back view- showing different coloration on the interior another side view The bottom view- it has a black coloration. The bone fragments from this formation are often multicolored.
  7. Tooth or claw?

    I have two different pieces I was wondering about. I have my assumptions, maybe whale tooth on the 1st one and the 2nd barracuda, but there's a grove on the inside of it. I found them in Venice Florida in a shell pile. There was a lot of marine life there, whale, manatee ect and petrified wood. Thanks PS can sucks from abuse
  8. Claw of some sort?

    My first one of these found on Myrtle Beach. I think I've narrowed it down to a claw of some sort, but doesn't seem to match online photos I can find of turtle, croc and gator claws. Or it may be so eroded I just can't recognize the similarities. It's length would fit on a quarter. Ideas? Thanks! Paula
  9. I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at but I know it's a fossil. I found it while scanning the beach for bottles in the lowcountry of South Carolina. About 6cm give or take. Looks to have been broken prior to falling off or death but I don't know for sure.
  10. Tooth or claw kem kem

    Hello together, there is a type of fossil from kem kem I have seen several times now under different descriptions in the net: It is either called a pterosaur wing claw, or an undescribed pharyngeal fish tooth. At least to my eye they look like the same structure. The number of specimens lets me think its rather fish than pterosaur, but I´d like to hear your opinions please. Here is an example: Thanks, J
  11. Need help

    Found on Texas Louisiana border is it a claw or a tooth and any idea of kind?
  12. Claw or strange rock?

    Here is a 45 second closeup video of a claw shaped rock. I found it in a creek in North West Illinois, Whiteside County USA. I took it home just in case it actually was something other than a rock. What do you guys think. Thanks for the help. Claw or Rock Video
  13. Claw?

    Found this near Murphy, Idaho while looking at rocks. To me, it looks too curved to be a regular rock. There also seems to be a structure inside it. Is it a fossil claw, or something else, or not a fossil at all?
  14. Dog claw? Fossil?

    Hey everyone, Happy new year! My son and I found this today in Hogtown Creek in Gainesville, FL. To me, it looks like a dog's claw (are they called claws? nails?). Anyways, at first my son thought it was a shark tooth, but it doesn't look like any tooth I have ever seen. It has something that resembles the gums of a tooth. The bottom is flattened, but that could just be wear. Please let me know what you think it could be. Hopefully the pictures are clear. Thanks in advance!! Sam
  15. Theropod Claw?

    Does anyone have an idea of what this might belong to? The claw is approximately 2 inches long. This claw was found in the Judith River Formation. Seller is claiming it’s a Therapod of some sort. Any input would be appreciated! Thank you.
  16. Does this seem real? It just looks sort of suspect to me. The channel running down the length looks way to uniform and perfect to be real.
  17. Please Help ID

    Claw. I think was found in the Wando River. Any ideas.
  18. Dinosaur Claw?

    I recently did a bad thing and took a spontaneous punt on a claw without much info. I'm wondering if anyone could tell me anything at all about the look of it? Does it even look dinosaurian? Due to the size & condition, I wouldn't be shocked if it was a replica of some sort, even though I can't find anything close online. I just can't make a decent judgement call on it being fake from eyeballing these photos. The seller was obviously not the collector of the specimen (they couldn't even positively identify it as a claw) and was open about having no knowledge of the details surrounding it; all I have to go on, is that the seller was on the South coast of England and other fossils they had for sale included mostly British ammonites, Ichthy and Plesiosaur verts. They also described it as "quite heavy". The photos aren't particularly clear, as they're from the seller; I will update with better when it arrives. I've brightened/enhanced them the best I could, so there are distortions in the detail, and the colours/sheen might not be quite true to life:
  19. Hi, There is this claw i have been looking at and i would like to know from the claw experts whether this looks genuine? The seller does state it has some fractures that have been glued and filled and the preservation plus the look of the overall shape leads me to believe that it is genuine. However most (or at least a decent amount of) large claws are probably fabricated to some extent and this claw is 10cm in length (4 inches). Part of the base of the claw looks to have a different colouration from one side so i don't if that is normal or not. Thanks in advance!
  20. Greetings, I recently acquired a big spinosaurus claw from a moroccan seller at a fossils and minerals event in Barcelona, Spain, called Expominer. I was quite happy with the purchase until a friend of mine told me that it could be a fake claw carved from a bone, but he is not sure, I have been checking similar spinosaurus claws on catawiki and they are sold as real dinosaur claws... What do you think? Thank you very much.
  21. Garudimimus brevipes claw

    Hello! How do you see this claw? I think it is a rare species. It seems that it has no restoration. Do you think it's the foot or the hand? Thank you!
  22. permian tooth or claw?

    Read about the waurika oklahoma permian site on the forum. The directions, location and site description were perfect. I found many small pieces of bone, and teeth and incredible numbers of orthocanthus shark teeth. I have a two pieces that I would appreciate help with. The larger one is 17 to 20 mm (the diameter of a quarter) and the smaller is 5-8 mm in size and a tenth of it in weight. The smaller one looks like what I have seen called a small demetradon limbus claw, and a friend thought the larger was a diaductes incisor. I would appreciate help. The small claw? seems very small for demetradon, and the larger seems very curved for what little I have seen of diaductes. All help and suggestions will be appreciated. This is the only permian material I have ever collected, I have no background to go on.
  23. Tooth or Claw

    Thought Id as for help, recently found on the beach in gipsland, Victoria, Australia. Not sure if its a tooth or claw, area it was found in is well known for fossil finds. Thanks in advance for any help. Daniel
