I'm guessing horseshoe crab tail
That was going to be my guess as well.
I know that everyone wants you to believe that that's a horseshoe crab tail..... But reject such notions. That's clearly a scepter for the King of the crab people.
My family owns a fishing shack in a place called Horseshoe Beach (no shit) where I find dead horseshoe crabs on the beach all the time. As everyone else said, this is one's tail, I think mostly just used to flip back over if necessary.
The tail actually has photoreceptors along the dorsal side to aid in seeking shelter from predators during the day too!
That's a human hand...
With the weird spiky thing for a size reference.
One hell of a toothpick
I could use a toothpick right now...
it’s the elder wand. congrats.
I had to check what sub this was on cause Harry Potter wand was the first thing I thought too. Lol
Horse shoe crab tail/spike
It’s a horseshoe crab tail, they break off of the dead crabs bodies really easily and always seem appear w/o any other parts.
When I lived in city island people would catch horseshoe crabs and cut off the tails and throw them back in because they thought they were dangerous/venomous barbs
If you look closely, I’d swear it’s a human hand.
Horseshoe crab tail
I’ve definitely tapped 10 of these to my fingers to pretend to have claws before. As others have said, it is a horseshoe crab tail.
I looked like a goofy goober
I would have guessed a 9 in willow reed wand with a dragon heartstring core…. But it might be a horseshoe crab tail maybe?
A mermaids hair pin, of course. 🐚
That looks like a hand, the horseshoe crab tail for reference helps alot.
👍, horseshoe crab tail
This is a horseshoe crab telson. It will use it to spike in to the sand to flip itself back over in case of getting stuck upside down.
That is a telson (commonly called the tail) from a horseshoe crab. The telson is the posterior-most division of the body of an arthropod. Other places you've probably seen a telson are the pokey part on a shrimps tail and the stinger on a scorpion.
A very thick horseshoe crab tail
Horseshoe Crab tail lol be glad he found it this way and not the other way people find them
thought it was wizard staff
A wizard’s staff has a knob at the end.
It's a squid dick
This is called a telson, or the tail of a horseshoe crab. They use it to right themselves in case they get flipped on their backs. It might look sharp but it can’t hurt you!
Can’t tell with that reference. What size is that hand? Is it normal, or small, or extremely large? Can we get a banana for scale?
Horseshoe crabs grow by molting, by shedding their old shells as they grow. A lot of these old shells, to which the tails are attached, het washed ashore. I have a small one, completely intact, that I found last year on an East coast beach.
Now that we’ve gotten the what is this out of the way; love the crystals.
Yup. Definitely a horse shoe crab tail. You’b surprised to know how many of those are out there. When they mate millions of em come on to the beach at once. Another fun fact...they have blue blood.
Looks like a hand with bracelets. Cool find.
We need a banana for scale. Can't tell if that's a 2 year olds hand, or the hand of a 2.5 m adult man, or a 10 m statues hand.
That's a human hand
That’s somebody’s hand! You gotta call the cops ASAP
An you found my penis bone, thank god for that. lm meeting someone this weekend
Tail of a horseshoe crab
Awww this takes me back to my childhood by the ocean… so nostalgic.
That is most definitely a horseshoe crab tail.
Tail off a Horse Shoe crab.
Someone’s left hand and a crab tail for scale
It looks like a hand most likely human. Kl find
Definitely a horseshoe crab tail
definitely a mermaid’s spear.
Looks like a sting ray stinger
Looks like a stinger from a ray
Gotta be a horseshoe crab tail
Horseshoe crab telson
I don't know but find another and use them as knitting needles.
That's King Willie's knife from Predator 2
It's called telson, the posterior part of the horseshoe crab (which is actually closer to spiders than crabs, being under the class of Chelicerata). Crabs also got telson, the posterior flat rounded plate on the tail, ans i think Zoology should stop confusing things with similar names. Great to see one <3
Either horseshoe crab tail or the tail of a stingray
Horseshoe crab tail for sure.
It’s a horseshoe crab tail
A shank or shiv from a sea mammal from the wrong side of the reef. It otter be illegal.
Looks like a lobster antler
Marine biologist here, that's a stick and poke needle that octopus use for gnarly tattoos
Stingray’s barb it looks like
Def not a stingray although at first glance that was my initial guess as well
Uhhhm…it’s a human hand and part of their arm. Call the police.
All these posters saying horseshoe crab were pit here by nsa to throw you off. It’s an alien antenna bone from one of the raiders from the Saturn moon titan. Run. Get out. Don’t take your phone. They can track you. Your only hope is mulder and sculley.
The elderly wand
stingray stinger, its possibly too long for a horseshoe crab tail buut it could be it as well
This, is exactly what I thought. It is one of those 2 for sure.
That’s a human hand and wrist. The shitty tattoo probably made it hard to figure out.
I thought it was part of human bones lol.
Is it the horseshoe crab that has blue blood?
Yes it’s blue and extremely important to the biomedical industry because their unique, copper-based blue blood contains a substance called "Limulus Amebocyte Lysate", or "LAL".
This compound coagulates or clumps up in the presence of small amounts of bacterial toxins and is used to test for sterility of medical equipment and virtually all injectable drugs. That way, when you get a vaccine you know it hasn’t been contaminated by any bacteria. Anyone who has had an injection, vaccination, or surgery has benefited from horseshoe crabs!
Just wanted to say I love your jade bracelet! I've been looking for one like that for months 💕
“Issa Knife” 21 savage.
looks like a hand, but I'm no expert
So that is going to have to be a wand from Harry Potter. Don’t try it out you muggle!
Its a horseshoe crab tail, as the length, color and shape are same to their tails.
Poor horseshoe crab lost its tail((
They have blue blood! Hemocyanins rule! Be nice to them, they were here a long time before any of us!
A marine animals walking stick.
That's what got Steve Irwin killed. It's a spike from a ray. Many rays many different shapes and sizes of stingers.
I think it’s part of a horseshoe crab, those things are creepy as hell
