FW: T. rex as ankylosaur specialist
The hand claws of T rex are significantly curved compared with the foot
claws (not as curved). Look at a picture of Sue or Stan.

I have a cast of a tyrannosaur pedal claw at home, and it looks fairly
recurved to me. It's a dead ringer in size and shape for a baryonyx
thumb claw... unless the cast isn't what the Monash Science Centre told
me it was?
