Is this real Spinosaurus claw?

Recommended Posts

Top Trilo

If anyone would know its @Troodon.

 

Anything other than teeth from a Spinosaurus is incredibly rare so I'm skeptical

I echo the sentiment. You know how various Spinosaurid teeth come from Morocco with roots made out of carved bone? To me, this looks like that very same carved bone. Except, it's the entire thing.

The claw is 100% fake. It may be real bone, but it’s not a real claw bone. Who knows what they carved it out of. I recommend staying away!

This is from a different seller. What do you think? Must be real.https://www.dinosaurstore.com/wp-content/uploads/StoreProducts/Fossils/DinosaurClaws/SpinosaurusHandClaw-rear.jpghttps://www.dinosaurstore.com/wp-content/uploads/StoreProducts/Fossils/DinosaurClaws/SpinosaurusHandClaw-front.jpg

That looks very iffy as well. It has a weird shape and while the base shows some bone but half way up there are a lot of smudgy areas.

Its another fake.  Blood grooves are the hardest feature to replicate and are the best way to determine if its fabricated

This last one looks real.  Do you have additional photos especially of the tip area?
