Dinosaur claw confirmation


Recommended Posts

I would be grateful if somebody could educate me on this fossil, I purchased a bag of misc fossil bones on online years ago and this was inside. It would be great to know more about it . I believe it came from Hell Creek. Looks really good condition to me. Toe claw ?.

For information, if you want to know if bone is fossil or not take a flame to it for a few seconds. If it blackens and stinks its not a fossil. Since a fossilized bone is no longer bone but mineral it won't have odor or burn. It might get a little soot from the flame but that will rub off. The short amount of heat will do no damage to a real fossil.
