I've seen tyrannosaur mounts, and the cast I've got is much too big to be
from the forelimb (which is why I assumed it was a pedal claw).
Perhaps the Monash Science Centre got it wrong, and my "Tyrannosaur claw" is
actually a Baryonyx thumb claw (which would be even cooler)? I've got a book
at home with a life-size colour photo of a Baryonyx claw, and my cast matches
it in size, shape and morphology pretty much exactly.
