The Anzu foot is your typical theropod Dinosaur with 4 Digits.

Again I'm trying to put a foot together and at least the metatarsals are associated. I know that because they are fused together. The foot is 27" long and the photograph does not show digit I.

Here are some isolated claws.

The hand claw is the largest I've ever seen and was happy to collect it. Six inches on the straight line.

I added a Coke can to get a perspective on how big the claw is.

No, hard to eat flesh without teeth. Probably a fish eater with those built in spears in their hands.

Have not added to this in a while just lazy in taking photos of my collection.   But I just got this claw in my mailbox yesterday and decided to add it.  I have to thank @hxmendoza for helping me out in obtaining the claw.

 

Not sure if this is a infant A. wyliei or a new species so I labeled as something different.  There are multiple Caenagnatoids in the Hell Creek from tiny to jumbo only one is described so we will take a wait and see attitude and show a few experts and see what they say.

They sure are! They look unrestored, which is super rare when dealing with any large dino claws.
