DINO-A-DAY #41: Baryonyx

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Baryonyx
PRONUNCIATION: bare-ee-ON-iks
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Surrey, UK, 1983
FUN FACT: The first Baryonyx fossils were found near what used to be Wealdon Lake -- a huge lake that covered most of what is now northern France and England during the Cretaceous (140 million years ago).
