The Baryonyx dinosaur on display in life-sized animatronic form at the 2010 California State Fair. Baryonyx meaning "heavy claw", was an unusual theropod with huge 1-foot (30.5-cm) long claws on its hands, and long, narrow, crocodile-like jaws with 96 small, serrated teeth (this is 1.5 times the number of teeth that most other theropods had). It had a small crest on its snout. Baryonyx had a long, straight neck (unlike other theropods, who had s-shaped necks) and a long tail. Its low-slung body was supported by 2 large rear legs and 2 slightly smaller arms. It was a carnivorous dinosaur from the early Cretaceous period, about 125 million years ago. This predator was about 32 feet (9.5 m) long, weighing perhaps over 2 tons. Baryonyx is one of the few known piscivorous (fish-eating) dinosaurs, with specialized adaptations like a long low snout with narrow jaws filled with finely serrated teeth and gaffe-hook-like claws to help it hunt its main prey. Baryonyx lived during the early Cretaceous period, about 125 million years ago, in what is now England.Baryonyx was a carnivore, a meat eater with huge claws and many small, sharp teeth in powerful, crocodile-like jaws. It had 64 teeth in the lower jaw but only 32 teeth in the upper jaw (the upper teeth were larger than the lower teeth). Baryonyx was a large predator that ate fish. A fossilized Baryonyx was found with a fossilized meal in its stomach; this stomach contained fish scales, fish bones, and some partially digested bones of a young Iguanodon. So far, Baryonyx is the only known dinosaur that ate fish. It may have waded in rivers and shallow seas to catch fish (just as some modern-day bears do). Baryonyx dinosaur may have walked on two or four muscular legs. Although the front legs shorter than the rear legs, they were not that much shorter.
