About 225 million years ago a group of reptiles appeared on earth. They had scaly, waterproof skin and young that hatched from eggs. They survived for nearly 150 million years and then vanished from the face of the earth. Some were the size of a chicken and others were enormous. There were dinosaurs that ate plants (herbivores) and dinosaurs with sharp teeth and claws that ate other dinosaurs (carnivores). Many other reptiles shared the world with the dinosaurs, flying in the air and swimming in the sea.
The front of the card shows a North American dinosaur called Deinonychus (terrible claw) from the early Cretaceous period. Its large hooked claws, about 15cm long, were used to slash and hold its prey and it was related to the fearsome Velociraptor.
This claw pendant is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied on a waxed cord. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
