Title

Neither of these Utahraptor claws has ever been cast before! This is the first and only Utahraptor hand claw cast available to date. In fact, Utahraptor hand claws have not even been included on mounts of Utahraptor. Instead, Utahraptor foot claws have been erroneously used in place of hand claws on mounts in museums. 

Utahraptor is larger than even the largest Hollywood raptors! This giant dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur, at over 20' long and 1,000 lbs, was the absolute apex predator of the Early Cretaceous of North America.

The Utahraptor hand claw is strongly recurved, suggesting it was used to rend and tear flesh. In life it would have been covered in a keratinous sheath, making it even longer, and sharper!

The specialized "killing claw" was the 2nd toe claw and was kept off the ground so as to be perpetually sharp. Covered in a keratinous sheath making it even larger and sharper, this claw could cut open the most stubborn of foes with one swift kick from the powerful predator's massive legs!
