Bissekty Ungual/Hoof


Recommended Posts

Hi

A few weeks ago I acquired a small ungual that was found in the Kyzyl Kum desert in Uzbekistan (Bissekty Fm).

It looks like a hadrosaur hoof to me. I assume a more detailed ID is not possible though. Do you agree?

 

Thanks

Felix

Its a nice ungual.  Todate no ornithpod unguals have been described from the Bissekty Formation.  Levnesovia transoxiana is a Hadrosauroidae that has been described not a Hadrosaurid  The publication points it to being iguanodontian ornithopods but its placement is currently uncertain.   So until this is clarified and unguals are described its best called an indeterminate ornithpod.
