Rare Eremotherium Terminal Phalanx

$149.00

Very uncommon fossil from a fairly uncommon animal...the giant sloth, Eremotherium. Not all digits on the hands or feet of this giant sloth end in claws. This fossil is the 'nub' that one of the digits ends in...terminal phalanx. This is the first one that I have ever seen outside of a museum specimen. Heavily mineralized, highly detailed and huge. It weighs just shy of a pound. An eremotherium claw can cost thousands.. This, not so much.
