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.
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.
