Spinosaurus phalanx?

Recommended Posts

Still_human

Is this a spinosaurus phalanx? I believe it's supposed to be a finger, not a toe. Ive done a lot of comparing, and it just doesn't look right, although it's from a source that I trust, and am believe that most of their ID'd stuff is correct, although I believe I've seen a few(very small %)that have been incorrect, over time. I believe it could be a slightly mishappen phalanx, specifically the base/back/end closest to the hand itself.

There are no papers on definitive Spinosaurid hands from Morocco. So the only option would be to compare it to other Spinosaurids elsewhere, like Baryonyx or Suchomimus.

 

Looks too slender to me.

Also looks like it might have been repaired or restored to me. :unsure:

Yes, youre right, exactly, it looks like both ends would have been sanded way down. there was one thing I came across that looked like it could be about the same, which had me wondering, especially if those bones are not an exact science, yet

Ok good, thank you, I'm glad I said that. That's what I was wondering, but a lot of times I'm not too sure by myself, cause fossilization leaves lots of damage that's filled in, and of course "re-sets" a good amount of bone fossils, so im not sure the difference between human restoration, and mother nature fossilization restoration many times
