"An paleontologist at the Smithsonian identified it as a fossilized crab claw."

“Given the nature of other fossils found in your area the fossil is likely Pleistocene in age (2 million to 12 thousand years ago). The extra rock around it is a very well consolidated matrix that was so hard it didn’t readily erode. The claw did erode a bit though –- which is why it isn’t immediately distinguishable as a claw. The tips are gone and parts of the infilled area where the original flesh would have been has shown through, making the whole specimen look a bit odd,”

I think that was from Fauci's first experiment.
