Dinosaur Claws


The plant-eating dinosaurs had claws also at the ends of their forelimbs and hind limbs. Unlike the predatory dinosaurs, that had sharp, grasping and killing claws, the plant-eater (herbivore) claws were relatively blunt and harmless. They were probably used for pawing at the ground or fronds of ferns, stability and as a last resort, as a defense mechanism. This claw is probably from the large Sauropod, Apatosaurus. It is 11 inches in length and was found associated with the entire hind limb. This is the largest claw of this dinosaur. Sauropods had 5 toes but only 3 claws. The claws varied in size. This specimen was excavated from the Jurassic Morrison Formation at the Dinosaur Safaris Inc. dig site in Wyoming. -- Text and Photo by: Bob Simon

 The name "dinosauria" was choosen by Dr. Richard Owen, an English doctor. Owen first used the word in his "Report on British Fossil Reptiles" presented  to the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1841. "Dinosaurs" is a combination of two Greek words"deinos (fearfully great)" and "sauros (a lizard)." Thus the name literally means "fearfully great lizard." not terrible lizard.
