<< Giant raptor claw found (USA Today-email edition)
 Paleontologists have unearthed a dinosaur claw that is more than a foot
 long and very likely belonged to the largest raptor that ever roamed the
 Earth. The claw, unveiled Tuesday at the Houston Museum of Natural
 Science, was discovered in the Patagonia region of Argentina. It is 54%
 larger than the claws of Utahraptor, the largest raptor known to date.

This is, I think, the "Megaraptor" claw already unveiled in _National
Geographic_, or at least, another specimen of same. By the way, this doesn't
necessarily mean that "Megaraptor" was 54% larger than _Utahraptor_.
