A relative of Spinosaurus, Baryonyx had a long, slender snout full of teeth that suggested it hunted fish. It is named for the first claw on each hand, which was notably larger than the others.
History: Amateur fossil hunter William Walker found a large claw in Surrey, England in 1983. After it was brought to the attention of the Natural History Museum of London, a group of paleontologists traveled to the site to locate the reset of the skeleton. The discovery was eventually named Baryonyx in 1986. It was, at the time, the first theropod dinosaur discovered from the Early Cretaceous Period.
