Details:

A stunning and extremely rare Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw from the late Cretaceous, originating from North Africa. A remarkable specimen with dark pink hues, acute definitions to the detail throughout and like all Deltadromeus claws, fine to the point and much more elongated than the that of the Dromaeosaur raptors which were a quarter or so there size. The 'delta-runner', was an enigmatic dinosaur, discovered from the region of the Tegana formation, the Kem Kem beds. The scarcity of discoveries for this genus to date is extremely rare, for a single skeleton has yet to be discovered.

A stunning and extremely rare Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw from the late Cretaceous, originating from North Africa. A remarkable specimen with dark pink hues, acute definitions to the detail throughout and like all Deltadromeus claws, fine to the point and much more elongated than the that of the Dromaeosaur raptors which were a quarter or so there size.

Condition report: Exhibiting exceptionally good apical point to the tip of the claw slight matrix coverage around the base of the claw residing from the original excavation this year. An archetypical fare-pink iron colour. In a stable condition, the enamel is superb. Often the rigours of the fossil bed determine the outcome of fractures and aesthetic quality within these wonderful fossil Deltadromeus agilis claws, mainly due to plate movements within the sediments which change over millions of years, dating back to 100,000,000 years.

 

This Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw is the exception, attaining an excellent morphology and exhibiting great preservation compared to larger dinosaurs claws where they lose quality through to the tip. This for the author is an added morphological bonus.

 

Deltadromeus claws are far less common than that of other dinosaurs, thousands of dinosaur teeth and fewer claws have been discovered from this location over decades, among these, very few are of actual quality, let alone excellent quality and again, even rarer when we're looking at the Deltadromeus agilis specimens compared to other dinosaurs.

 

The archetypical sabre curve of the famous Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw looks evidently menacing, no one can argue the heritage of the Deltadromeus claws occupy highly developed sharp cutting weapons, a signature of evolution for the Deltadromeus, with 100,000,000 years, the lineage has gone into refining the evolutionary durable ungual, a deadly weapon to the attire of the Delta. With much appeal, you surely won't be anything but in awe when this wonderful Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw is in your hand, a truly exceptional discovery and specimen.
