Dubs posted a topic in Fossil IDI'm seeking feedback on what exactly is this bone-looking structure. It seems to closely resemble the tip of an alligator's toes. Do you think this is something that could happen to naturally forming rock? I cropped in closely to the image so it can be clearly seen. It measures 8mm from top to tip. I would sincerely appreicate any expert insight into what this could be.
This rock has a nice variety of prints with varying number of toes. The bottom center has two toes, the left has three. The upper right is a very distinct print but I can’t tell if there is is a fourth toe to the right of the three long ones.
Is anyone familiar at all with Diplocaulus claws? Anything from shape/look, to size? In fact, in many(maybe even most)of the very few pictures that are clear enough to see the feet(of fossils, not art lol)it doesn't look like they really even HAVE any claws to speak of, let alone relatively long ones, but 1 or 2 pictures DO. And for animals that are believed to be heavy diggers, they would probably need to have more than little naked toes. *this is pretty similar to the only other picture of "Diplocaulus claw" I could find, although that is on a for-sale site, not a scientific one:/
Show us you fingers and toes! Complete hands and feet are of course welcome too. I'll start with photogrammetry scans I made. Some new, as well as some old ones. Indeterminate Hadrosaur phalanx from the Campanian of Judith River. And here's a mammal for good measure. A woolly rhino metacarpal and phalanx from the North Sea.
