Description
Extremely rare piece corresponding to a complete and perfect claw. It does not have any restoration or reparation. It is quite small, and its specific assignation to a taxon is complex. Its flat morphology indicates without doubt that it is a foot claw. Its features suggest that it is the claw of some type of small crocodile. However, this classification is not final. It could belong to another reptile variety. The Cretaceous in this zone of Africa possesses a wide association of reptiles and dinosaurs, many of them are not yet studied or with very scarce published scientific information.

Either way it is a specimen which deserves its dedicated study. It is not easy to find this type of pieces in these sites due to the destructive metholodology of many local miners, which has as a result that some small pieces are lost forever.
