Tiny Theropod Toe Bone - Javalina Formation, Texas

This is tiny toe bone of a small theropod dinosaur (raptor) from the Javalina Formation of West Texas. It's .55" long and has very little surface erosion or weathering. These formations are, unfortunately very understudied so it's impossible to give a more specific ID of the bone. Hopefully new finds from the location will help change this in the future.

This specimen was collected within the past year on private deeded property in Brewster County, Texas. You won't see any other dinosaur material from the Aguja & Javelina Formations for sale because nearly all of the formation lies the borders of a national park or in Mexico which can not be collected. One of our partners was lucky enough to purchase several hundred acres of ranch land in Texas containing a good exposure of these formations and we will be offering more material from the locality in the future.
