  1. Tiny Kem Kem Claw

    Any thoughts on this? Unfortunately, given the small size, seller can't get much better photos, so I hope these two will do. It's sold as a dinosaur claw, but I think with these sorts of claws it's pretty difficult to tell whether croc, dino or something else. But if anyone has a thought, that would be great. Also, the first pic--the sort of crack going along the side from about halfway, is that a concern that it's restored/fabricated, or just a bog standard crack? I can't see similar on the other side photo, which makes me think it's just a minute crack. Also, as well as a bit of the tip missing, is it also missing a small section of the back? Many thanks
  2. Need help for this claw . Its not the biggest 9 cm Hoping its the real deal and is this from a spinosaurus ? Found in the Kem Kem Beds, Taouz Marokko
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone is able to identify the species of this giant sloth claw, it was found in the Ashepoo river, ACE basin in South Carolina. Believed to be ~12,000 years old but considering it was found on the river base could be older. Can get measurements if that would help, it's a UK sterling pound coin in the picture, roughly same diameter as one euro coin or US nickel. Thanks all! Edit: 85mm length, 25mm width at base, 35mm height at base
  4. Hell Creek Claw ID - Dakotaraptor?

    Hi everyone! I have a large claw from the Hell Creek Formation of Harding County, South Dakota that I was hoping to have help identifying. It is large enough that I initially believed it stood a chance at being tyrannosaurid, but it seems a bit more compressed than tyrannosaur claws I’ve worked with in the past - particularly on the lower ridge. The ventral surface of the claw is also distinctly flat rather than rounded, which seems unusual. Could this be a Dakotaraptor claw or is that just wishful thinking? Large Anzu perhaps? It is right around 1.75 inches across the length of the claw (sorry, no metrics on this ruler). I have referred to the incredible guide posted by Troodon, and have some experience with various claws, but I still can’t quite come to a conclusion on this one. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  5. Unknown Claw Fossil

    These fossils have been found within 500 yards of each other on surface soil in Venice, Florida. Other early pleistocene dated fossils in immediate area. When I found the first one, I thought it was a nail from a dog. Several others found in the last few months. I appreciate any input on these identifications. Happy New Year -Michael
  6. Mystery Claw

    Good everyone. So I was fortunate enough to be able to buy some specimens from an old collection. Unfortunately the husband had passed away and the misses was left his collection from 30+ years. This claw had been tagged as a Spinosaurus claw which I’m pretty confident it is not. So I’m hoping you guys may have some input. I cannot tell you anything about location because no one other than him would know. So I understand that the ID will not be 100% and that’s fine. It definitely has had some repair work done to it. So thank you in advance for any input. Sincerely, J
  7. Texas Cave Find Claw

    Hello everyone, hope someone can help ID this claw for me to at least genus. This came from Burnet County, TX cave on the river. It is well fossilized and solid, from an older layer in the cave where I have found two turtle species - Apalone and an unidentified leg hole fragment of turtle/tortoise the material is Late Pleistocene. I am figuring this claw probably belongs to my unidentified turtle shell piece but the shell fragment is pretty beat up.
  8. Small theropod claw

    Hello, This is probably a long shot, especially because the ends are broken off, but I was wondering if someone could have a go at IDing this very small theropod claw from the Dinosaur Park Formation. I figured that the relative thickness above and below the blood groove might be diagnostic, but I know how hard these can be to ID at the best of times. After consulting this thread, my best guess so far is that it comes from a troodontid, but I'm skeptical about this simply because of how rare they are. Thanks!
  9. This is my first time in this forum, I’m really enjoy all your post. I have seen this spino claw and I don’t know if is real, can you help me with this? Really thank you
  10. Help with fossil crab ID

    I'm looking for help with finding a genera from this chela/ crab claw, found in Cenozoic rock from Northwest Nelson, South Island, New Zealand. It is fairly weathered, and was originally split between two separate stones lying on the beach. A little reconstruction and preparation produced the result in the image. It was not in-situ so I am unsure which rock group it is associated with. I'm guessing it is either late Oligocene or early Miocene in age based on what I know of the area, but I could be wrong. I'm hoping there are some crab experts out there who will know what this is straight away, unfortunately I'm not well versed in decapods and seldom find them around where I live in the North Island.
  11. Hello let me start of by say you all are awesome! Amateurs like myself have got a lot more confidence because of the help you give us. It was great day when I discovered this site I had bought these a ways back and I was going thru my collection and it would be great to get an opinion if I these are what they were described as. The "raptor claw" was the first ever fossil I bought! (Fingers crossed haha) The COA said it was from the Taquiz, kasar-es-souk, region in Morocco. I believe the seller told be the red lines we blood grooves? It was probably 10 years ago so I dont recall much else about the ad. The other two were bought from the same seller, who did not have much reviews so I took a chance I guess. He described them as a "tricertops frill spike" and an "ankylosaurus armor scute" all i have regarding these ones is that is was found on private land in Wyoming in Lance creek formation... Any input would be greatly appreciated! I tried to follow the posting etiquette sorry If I missed something. Thank you!
  12. Enchodus jaw/teeth? And crab claw?

    My 29th trip to Big Brook and I decided to try to get there by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. Got to explore an area with little evidence of usage as shown by the paucity of glass and plastic. Overgrown and thorny and I think I saw my first bear footprint (photo below). Posted below are photos of what I think is an Enchodus jaw and two teeth and also what I think is a partial crab claw but much bigger than any I’ve found before. I also think I found my first arrowhead. Any info greatly appreciated.
  13. Dino claw?

    I was going through my box of chunkosaurus bones tonight to see if I missed anything from any of our first ever fossil hunts. Found a bunch of cool verts, pachy chunks, amongst other things. But this one’s got me thinking - especially after my buddy @CEP found A huge tyrannosaur claw last week. I’ve been crying myself to sleep every night that I didn’t find it. anyway - could this be a super worn tyrannosaur claw? JRF milk river Montana. The only asymmetrical part is the top where it’s the most worn. Worn tip - well - work everything. Do me a favor @Troodon or @jpc and give me some good news or, I’ll just continue to cry myself to sleep if it’s an indeterminate dinosaur bone -and sorry the pics are rotated - they were vertical when I uploaded
  14. Claw? triassic

    Here is another of last months finds. I set it aside because of the beautiful rugose texture on one side thinking I aught to be able to find something about bones with this unusual texture. Now that I look at it again I'm wondering if it is a claw. It is three sided....the rugose side which has a slight outward curve; the opposite side which is much smoother and flat; and the underside(?) which has a smooth very concave surface. Any opinions?
  15. EURYPTERID "CLAW"

    I've often wondered as to the purpose of the tiny "claw" at the very tip of a eurypterid's swimming paddle. It's really very small and I can't imagine what it would be used for. It's not an anomaly as quite a few genera have them. Below are couple of pictures of one of my specimens, and just so you don't think me crazy and seeing things, there is also an illustration showing the feature. Any comments would be welcome. Tom
  16. What's my fossil

    Hi from Liverpool I found this 18yrs ago in Robin Hoods Bay NE England UK any thoughts as to what it could be?
  17. Spino claw with X-ray? Pure composite? Any other thoughts?
  18. Hi everyone! Many of you have probably already seen this piece. The seller says it’s probably a Troodonor or Dromaeosaur and that it’s from an old 80’s collection. I’m interested, what is your opinion on it’s state, the species and restoration? Also, why would they keep the surrounding matrix on the skull?
  19. Claw or Tooth for ID Florida

    I don't know if this is a claw or tooth or even something else. It is about 7/8 inch long. From a central East Coast Florida beach. Thanks for all the help.
  20. What do you think about this Cave bear paw? The seller said that it's 100% genuine and authentic but i'm not sure.
  21. Some type of claw

    Judith river formation / Montana finds. I thought they were Dino claws, but they’re not fossilized feeling/looking. They don’t seem curved enough to be hawk, so I’m stumped. I know a lot of things it’s not, just not what it is thanks for the help
  22. Claw or Something Else?

    Just found on a beach near Jensen Florida. About one inch long. Looks like maybe a claw, but I'm not sure. Maybe crab? Thanks much.
  23. Anzu Claw

    Hi All For your consideration, I have a Hell Creek claw that I believe to be from Anzu pes claw. It has the pinch at the bottom of the claw that @Troodon had described prior. Right at 2 inches. Seems to have some restoration at the distal tip. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
  24. Dino claw

    Judith river Montana Dino claw. Figured it was a type of raptor claw, but wanted to see if anyone could shed more light on this one. I’m pretty sure it’s not an egg thanks
  25. Possible claw?

    Wondering if this is a rock or some type of fossil claw. Found outside Terry, Montana in the badlands.
