Baryonyx Hooked Thumb Claw
Each hand of Baryonyx was armed with a huge curved thumb claw. In life, it would have been covered with a horny sheath or nail and have been about 35 cm (14 in.) in length. It is believed that the animal used it for catching and lifting heavy fish out of the water in much the same way as the brown bear does today. It would also have been useful in attacking land prey such as small Iguanodons.
