This magnet features the ferocious Deinonychus dinosaur, meaning “terrible claw,” on display at the Wonders Center and Science Museum.
In the Dinosaur Activity Book for kids, it describes it as the “Leaping Lizard.” It goes on to say,
“God gave Deinonychus three long, clawed fingers on each hand of its forelimbs for grasping. Scientists believe that Deinonychus could have made long, tremendous leaps with its strong hind legs. This dinosaur got its name, which means “terrible-claw,” from the huge sickle-shaped “switchblade” claws on the second toe of each foot. The first toe of each foot was small and turned backward. The larger and very strong third and fourth toes pointed forward to support Deinonychus’ weight when standing or running. The claws were held high off the ground until needed.
Imagine how well the Deinonychus could have climbed trees to reach food growing high above with the useful claws God gave it. Leaping up a tree trunk, Deinonychus could have flicked its second toes forward instantly to sink them deep into the tree’s bark for firm support. Clutching the trunk and branches with its forelimbs to help pull itself up, Deinonychus could have easily and quickly scaled any tree.”
The way this dinosaur was made with features so incredible, points to a master designer who knew exactly what this creature needed, not evolution.
