    Moroccan toe claw

    Post  fossilhunter on Mon May 14, 2012 9:22 pm

    I have this toe claw from morocco. It is compared to an iguanodon toe claw. It is taller than it, but is shorter. I was thinking a sauropod toe claw, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

    It may not be complete enough to get a proper ID, I had about 100-200 bits of bone from Morocco and maybe 5 or 6 (except teeth) are identifiable. Could you take some more pictures of different angles with a better background?- Perhaps on a piece of paper?

    I would agree, hard to ID. I had about 50 bits of bone (sold several of them), and only 4 were identifiable.
