Any Chance Of This Being A Cretaceous Claw Core?

I found this last week in Monmouth county at one of the usual spots. I don't think it's a Crustacean claw, but I could be wrong I guess.

Pic #3 makes me think claw also. It's surely a part of an animal @ any rate, the shapes are too precise.

Its gives me the appearance of being a claw but not sure from what, possibly turtle but not dinosaurian.

Very turtle-like.

To my eyes, the little bumps on the side look like the type of decoration arthropods tend to have. I vote crab. Doesn't look like the typical ghost shrimps we find there though. Is it hollow or solid?

Now that you point it out, I believe I agree.

That's what I as thinking. I dont see the "turtle texture" that I have observed on my Kansas fossils.

Nice find Phil. It does look crustacean to me but I haven't seen any crabby material from our trans/regressive deposits.

It's hard to remember why you drained the swamp when your surrounded by alligators.

I vote crab also. Like Gus said, that one little dot left on the end says crab.
