Where Gaints Walked

"Baryonyx walkeri"
In this painting I played with the idea that Baryonyx was perhaps a nocturnal hunter. No reason in particular, just artistic license. It is hypothesized that because of the crocodile-like jaws and teeth, the Baryonyx specialized in eating fish. But we also know that crocodiles eat many other things as well, and 124 million years ago they may have eaten a few Baryonyx.
