Struthiomimus sedens skeleton in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History
is a hand claw from the ornithomimid dinosaur Struthiomimus sedens. It's 2.9 inches in length and in great shape with no restoration. It comes with a nice riker mount to display it.

The claw comes from a well known private quarry in Butte County, South Dakota which was discovered back in the 1980's It represents a river channel deposit and consists of 2 meters worth of sandstone and gravel. Teeth and other bone material being swept down the river 66 million years ago would have been deposited here. the Hell Creek Formation represents a sub-tropical floodplain which would have been similar to coastal, modern-day Louisiana.

Struthiomimus was long-legged, bipedal, ostrich-like dinosaurs with toothless beaks. It was estimated that they could reach a size of approximately 13 feet in length. It's thought that due to their abundance they must have been herbivores or omnivores.
