I like dinosaurs. I like them everyday.

Deinonychus (“Terrible Claw”)

Lived: The early Cretaceous period.

Size: 3.4 metres and 73 kilograms.


Deinonychus is named for the large sickle-like claw located on both hind limbs. The similarities between the Deinonychus and birds is what led paleontologists to make the link between dinosaurs and their modern counterparts.
