Raptor Claw with Finger

Dromaeosaurus albertensis

The rarest of all dinosaur claws paired with its adjoining phalanx (finger bone) in excellent condition. The claw is a gorgeous chocolate brown color and the surface detail is superb.

Dromaeosaurus was a true raptor which lived in the Late Cretaceous of western North America. It is an exceptionally rare dinosaur with very few specimens found including just a couple of partial skulls, some vertebrae, ribs and numerous hand and foot bones most of which resides in the Tyrell Museum in Alberta, Canada.

The custom display stand holds both bones in their original position. Height with stand: 11.5 cm (2)
