Description

    "OSTRICH" DINOSAUR TOE PHALANGE
    Struthiomimus altus
    Cretaceous
    Private ranch, Hell Creek Formation, Wibaux Co., Montana

    Running at speeds of 30 to 50 mph, the swift and slender Struthiomimus needed strong legs and flexible feet. Its bird-like triple-toed claw foot was perfectly adapted to speed the dinosaur away from larger predators, but the long curved claws could also be handy if cornered. This toe phalange measure 4¾ inches long and has no restoration. It is in excellent condition and exhibits a fine patina.
    Estimate: $ 500.00 - 750.00
