I like dinosaurs. I like them everyday.

Baryonyx (“Heavy Claw”)

Lived: The late Cretaceous period.

Size: 8.5 meters long and 1,700 kilograms (perhaps larger still!).


This piscivore (fish-eater) had a rather crocodilian snout, containing 96 teeth (definitely did not draw that many teeth), which was optimum for fishing. The claw on its thumb measured 25 centimeters and it was used to sweep up its prey similar to the manner of a grizzly bear.
