Deltadromeus Agilis Raptor Claw 41mm

£1,192.00 GBP

An exceptional Deltadromeus agilis raptor claw measuring 41mm from the Late Cretaceous, originating from North Africa. A remarkable specimen with pink hues, distinct detail throughout slender and elongated more than the Dromaeosaur raptors, which were around a quarter of the size of D.agilis; The 'delta-runner', is an enigmatic dinosaur discovered from the region of the Tegana formation, the Kem Kem layers. The scarcity of discoveries for this genus type to date making any discovery extremely rare. A single skeleton has yet to be discovered anywhere in the world.

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, 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.

Condition report: Exhibiting good apical point to the distal tip of the claw, slight matrix coverage around the proximal base of the claw, with an n archetypical faint-pink iron colour, in a stable condition. The Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur claw is of exception preservation considering its slender and fine 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. The distal tip is distinct and has not suffered greatly, although a slight nip distally is evident. Proximally some slight matrix attachment which is also exhibited on the mid-body of the ungual over the vein groove. However, this does not detract from the completeness and overall attractiveness of this specimen.

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.
