Hell Creek Claw ID

Hi Everyone, I'm after a second opinion on this claw I found in the Hell Creek, Montana this summer. It's 1.83" in length and has cleaned up nicely. My guess is that it's from a large reptile like a crocodile or turtle. Gut feel says croc like Borealosuchus. Any thoughts?

I can't say why, but I am leaning toward turtle too.
