I'm 90% sure this is a claw from something. It is too big to be from any modern species around here. I found it years ago near a manmade lake.



Is it valuable?!

I actually had someone look at it for me. They think it is a Oviraptor claw from the Hell Creek formation. I still need an actual paleontolost to varify though.

And yes it is petrified. I'm also 100% sure it isn't a resin fake (hot needle tested it)

I have better pics that Ill add later.

I was planning on selling it to pay for food plots but now Im kinda thinking different. After all of the work trying to get it checked out I think Im just going to keep it. I seen one on eBay for $2000 but the value outways what it's worth.

Haven't really done anything with it but a few guys that know about paleontology said they think it's an awesome find. They told me to carbon date it but Im not to worried about spending the money to get it carbon dated or anything like that, Im just gonna hang on to it.
