Raptor - Delta Runner

Deltadromeus Agilis Raptor Claw 32mm

£1,192.00 GBP

Deltadromeus agilis raptor juvenile dinosaur claw measuring 32mm from the Late Cretaceous of North Africa. A remarkable specimen exhibiting throughout slender and elongated morphology, much more than the Dromaeosaur raptors, which were around a quarter in size to D.agilis. The 'delta-runner', is an enigmatic dinosaur, discoveries scarce from the region of the Tegana formation. The scarcity of discoveries and a complete skull make an authoritative identification difficult, a single partially complete skeleton has yet to be discovered, until that point no identification can be comprehensively assured.

Deltadromeus has been classified in the past as a Neovenatorid based on finds in South America. Previously Noasaurid in North Africa and North America. At the Kem Kem formation, Noasaurids are also thought to have been present.

Condition report: Exhibiting good apical tip, slight matrix coverage around the proximal base of the claw, with an archetypical faint-pink (iron?) colouration, in a stable condition. The Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw is of exception preservation considering its slender qualities, the morphology displays a clear vein groove, sometimes referred to as the blood groove. An attractive pink colour persists throughout and this for the author is an added morphological bonus. Proximally some slight matrix attachment.

Deltadromeus claws are far less common than that of other dinosaurs, many dinosaur teeth but much fewer claws have been discovered from this location, among these very few are of such quality, rarer considering the allusive fossils of the Deltadromeus agilis.

The archetypical sabre curve of the Deltadromeus claw is menacing, a highly developed sharp cutting weapon, a signature of evolution for the Deltadromeus, 100,000,000 years ago, the lineage.

Rare Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw from the Late Cretaceous, originating from North Africa. 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, this specimen claw discovered from the region of the Tegana formation, the Kem Kem beds. The scarcity of discoveries and a complete skull make an authoritative identification difficult, for a single skeleton has yet to be discovered.
