From Late Pliocene deposits in Florida, this is a magnificent claw and associated phalange set of the extinct Giant Armadillo Holmesina floridanus. This specific digit is the smallest and is rarely found. The bone and claw came from the same animal and were found together. High grade fossils such as these, of this strange beast of the last Ice Age in Florida, are highly uncommon in most fossil collections. Bone and claw are completely intact and without damage. Highly unique as well as educational.
A fine quality display specimen from a prehistoric creature most people have no knowledge of!
