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

Looks like a struthiomimus claw to me, at least some type of ornithopod.

It looks to be either a Thesc or Pachy claw but it is not complete. It is only a partial claw.

Cheers. I double checked, it is listed as partial. I missed that bit.

 

Size is 1 inch.

Complete Pachy/Thesc claws in very nice condition used to be fairly common and at reasonable prices. If you keep your eye out you can probably find one.

I agree with @Dracorex_hogwartsia, probably pachy or thesc, heavily worn down. I found two probable thescelosaur foot claws last year in the Hell Creek in SD & ND, both were in decent condition, with a clear blood vessel groove.

Larger of the two: Seems like a large adult.

smaller specimen: maybe a baby.

The ventral side is pretty flat so would lean toward a Thescelosaurus claw.  Its just the tip and like Dracorex said lots of complete one available at reasonable prices
