Here is a claw from a Chirostenotes oviraptorosaurian dinosaur from the late Cretaceous (about 76.5 million years ago) of Alberta, Canada.

Chirostenotes (named from Greek 'narrow-handed') is a genus of oviraptorosaurian dinosaur from the late Cretaceous (about 76.5 million years ago) of Alberta, Canada. The type species is Chirostenotes pergracilis. Chirostenotes was characterized by long arms ending in slender relatively straight claws, and long powerful legs with slender toes. In life, the animal was about 2 metres (6.6 ft) long. Chirostenotes was probably an omnivore or herbivore, based on evidence from the beaks of related species like Anzu wyliei and Caenagnathus collinsi.
