Killer 4.2" Allosaurus Toe Claw With Stand - Wyoming

This is an very nice, toe claw from the fearsome, Jurassic predator Allosaurus. Dinosaur claws are one of the most collectable fossils due to their extreme rarity compared to teeth. This claw was collected this past spring from our partners quarry in Big Horn County, Wyoming. It's 4.1" long using a straight-line measurement and is in excellent condition.

There is a crack fill near the back of the claw and some surface restoration on one side, back portion of the claw where it was a little eroded. But the tip has not been restored as you sometime see with dinosaur claws where a partial claw will be made whole. It comes with a nice metal display stand to show it off.

This claw would have come the species Allosaurus "jimmadsoni" which is found lower in the Morrison Formation than the more common Allosaurus fragilis.

Allosaurus was a theropod of the Late Jurassic that lived from 156 to 145 million years ago. It was a predator with a massive skull, serrated teeth, and gaping jaws. This powerful and plentiful carnivore genus could grow more than 30 feet long. Due to how plentiful it's fossils are in the Morrison Formation, it's been suggested that they may have been a pack hunter.
