Baryonyx

About Baryonyx

Baryonyx is one of the strangest dinosaurs yet discovered. This massive hunter, while a true dinosaur, also shared many characteristics with the crocodiles. Baryonyx probably lived in or near water, and hunted fish and other small animals. It had about 90 short teeth which lined its long mouth. Baryonyx had one very large claw (about 12 inches long) which could be used both for protection against enemies as well as a useful tool for hunting.
