  Plunging into the river in pursuit of food, much like a modern grizzly bear, Baryonyx used its 12” curved, hooked-like claw on its largest digit, or finger, to catch a fish before 96 teeth clamped down on the hapless victim. Or did it hunt stealthily from the bank like a heron or egret do today? Scientists hold differing views but either way we do know that Baryonyx was one of the few fishermen of the dinosaur world.
