Own Your Very Own Velociraptor Claw For $12,500

July 1, 2015


This is the ~75-million year old Velociraptor claw for sale by the Astro Gallery Of Gems in New York. It measures about six-inches long in total length (including attached bone) and would look amazing hanging from my neck. But like, out the side of my neck with blood gushing everywhere. It's how I want to go.

Thanks to Ben J, who reminds us Velociraptors were only two feet tall and weighed 35 pounds, although there were related species that look similar but grew to over 9-feet tall and weighed 1,000 pounds (i.e. Utahraptor). Why not just use those in the movies? Is it because their name wasn't as cool?

    They didn't use the Utahraptor in the movie because Utahraptors were discovered after the first Jurassic Park had come out. By that point, that universe's mythos was already established.

    IF it came to US, you would be in trouble with homeland security. But, it is not a Velociraptor claw. Just Google Velocirator claws; images and see for yourself. Some awful fake Utahraptor claws out there too!

  • Rad Chad

    I vote that we just swap the names of the two raptors. Name the lame raptor after Utah. Utah is by far the worst state in the continental US. I mean...what does it even do? Salt lakes? Mormons? Shitty raptor names?

    The important thing is, you're alive when they begin to eat you...

    If I may... Um, I'll tell you the problem with the scientific power that
    you're using here, it didn't require any discipline to attain it. You
    read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn't earn
    the knowledge for yourselves, so you don't take any responsibility for
    it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as
    fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented
    it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you're selling it, you wanna sell it. Well...

    Condors. If I was to build a flock of Condors on this island no one would care.

  • o0THX11380o

    No, hold on. This isn't some uh, species that was obliterated by
    deforestation, or the building of a dam. Dinosaurs had their shot, and
    nature selected them, for extinction.
