Re: Deinonychus claws



Please consider the strength of the limb employing the claw. If the arms 
of Deinonychus were as powerful as those of a tiger, it might not require 
the claws on its hindfeet as weapons. It definitely might if it took 
prey larger than itself, as does a cat, and its arms were relatively weak.
