Dromaeosaur Raptor Dinosaur Claw 35mm

£142.00 GBP

A remarkable discovery of a dinosaur claw measuring 35mm from the Cretaceous of Gondwanaland, now part of the continent of North Africa. The genus type we have attributed to a Dromaeosaur. The region from where the ungual claw derived is geologically the fossil layers of the Cenomanian and Turonian strata of the age of 112,000,000 to 89,000,000 years.

Condition is excellent as the ungual is unbroken, complete and exhibits great morphology. The manus or pedal ungual groove is indistinct, due to weathering in the fossil bed, the surface also weathered, however, loses no charm for this fact. The claw has been carefully conserved and gently cleaned. In a very good stable condition, exhibiting good anatomical interest. The morphology of the claw is excellent having attributes of the dromaeosaurs family. The proximal end structure is exposed and profusely well defined. As is the artery vein groove situated on both lateral flanks. Proximally the claw and groove are the points of connection of the flex tendon points.

A ferocious small theropod dinosaur which roamed the Cretaceous land, what is now the northern Sahara desert of North Africa. Dromaeosaurids, the family of feathered theropod dinosaurs, generally small or medium in size (compared to Spinosaurids and Carcharodontosaurids), feathered carnivores that flourished in the Cretaceous Period. Stealth and agility were the Dromaeosaurs hunting and evading techniques, a true raptor quality.

There are many influences which play a role in the outcome and extraction processes when considering the value of these Dinosaur fossils and the diminishing resource, in this region of the world, of this unique site. Complete, undamaged dinosaur fossils are limited in occurrence; it requires much collecting time in the field to acquire such a fine example. Prestigious fossils are rare. These sites will too become exhausted, coupled with political and military unrest in the region making collecting more haphazard.
