Therapod claw from Faoux, France

Recommended Posts

Pterygotus

Recently I saw this therapod claw for sale from Faoux, France. It is described as early Cretaceous and 0.2 inches. Does anyone know what it could be? Also, the strange red stuff inside looks a bit suspicious.

At a quick glance the specimen looks hollow like the tip of a crab or lobster claw, but that is just a vibe from the supplied photos.

Wait for other with knowledge of the area and see what the general feel for this are.

Ive seen this type of claw sold and everytime I do scratch my head in trying to figure out what it is.  I do not believe its dinosaurian.
