Prehistoric Feeding Frenzy
The serenitude of the grazing Hadrosaurs is disrupted. A group of Deinonychus hunt and take down an Iguanodon. A fourth Deinonychus comes to join the fray.
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.» View More
