Small Theropod Dinosaur Claw Kem Kem Beds Morocco Cretaceous Fossil
This listing is for a small theropod dinosaur claw from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. The claw has great detail and is all natural no repair or restoration. The blood groove can be clearly seen. It is hard to say what dinosaur this is from, but it is definitely from a small meat eating dinosaur.
The claw comes with its own gem display case and COA upon request. The claw measures 0.57” in length on a straight line with digital calipers.
The Kem Kem Beds (also referred to by various names including the Continental Red Beds and Continental intercalaire) is a geological formation along the border between Morocco and Algeria in southeastern Morocco, whose strata date back to the Late Cretaceous. Dinosaur remains are among the fossils that have been recovered from the formation. Recent fossil evidence in the form of isolated large abelisaurid bones and comparisons with other similarly aged deposits elsewhere in Africa indicates that the fauna of the Kem Kem Beds (specifically in regard to the numerous predatory theropod dinosaurs) may have been mixed together due to the harsh and changing geology of the region when in reality they would likely have preferred separate habitats and likely would be separated by millions of years.
