Cave bear claw

Ursus spelaeus, the cave bear was spread widely over Europe and died out around 27,000 years ago. They were related to today's brown bear, but a little larger and it's thought they spent more time in caves. Hence the name.

Although the actual keratin claw material isn't preserved, these are the bone spurs that lay underneath.
