Which remarkable 'new' dinosaur was found in 1983?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Which remarkable 'new' dinosaur was found in 1983?       
Which remarkable 'new' dinosaur was found in 1983? In 1983 an amateur fossil hunter found a huge claw, 35 cm long, in a Surrey clay pit. When the site was excavated, it revealed an entirely new type of meat-eating dinosaur, which has been named Baryonyx.

Although this animal looked similar to other meat-eaters, it had some unique features.

A huge claw was attached to each thumb, and its head looked rather like that of a modern crocodile. Fish scales were found inside the skeleton, so it is now thought that this was the only known fish-eating dinosaur.

Baryonyx dinosaur

Baryonyx is the only known fish-eating dinosaur, and uniquely it carried huge claws on its front limbs.
