For Poetry Friday a frightful poem, "Deinonychus" from DINOTHESAURUS. Deinonychus was a dinosaur from the Cretaceous Period that used its sharp claws and powerful jaws to kill its prey. The raptors in the movie Jurassic Park that chased the kids around the lab were very similar to this predator. Some paleontologists say it was warm-blooded and had feathers (which I've indicated a bit). There was also a heavy metal band named Deinonychus. I snuck their goth logo into the art.
die-NON-i-kus (terrible claw)
Deinonychus had terrible claws.
Deinonychus had dangerous jaws.
Deinonychus was built to attack.
Deinonychus would hunt in a pack.
Deinonychus would leap on its prey.
Deinonychus could ruin your whole day!
