Raptor or Crocodile Claw

Recommended Posts

Dominik1922

Hello 

I need your help again. 

I am thinking since few days if i should buy this " raptor" claw. 

But i am Not sure if its a raptor claw. 

The mesure is 1.9 mm

And its from the Kem Kem beds, morocco.

 

So what you think about that?

Looks like the tip of a theropod, it's also hollow.  Difficult to say if it's a raptor since none have yet been identified in the Kem Kem

Thanks for your answer, 

Ok that sounds good because i was thinking its maybe a crocodile crawl. 

So was it means when its hollow?

 

And when it maybe isnt a raptor what Could it be Else ?

I agree, likely Theropod indet. claw tip.

There are dromaeosaurids in the Kem Kem beds. But yeah, none have been properly described yet.

Other options would possibly be Spinosaurids, Carcharodontosaurids and Abelisaurids. But there might still be more types of theropods in the Kem Kem beds. We really don't know that much about the Kem Kem fauna yet.

A proper description of Kem Kem dromaeosaurid material... I'd love to see that one day :)
