Baryonyx is a genus of carnivorous theropod dinosaurs from what is now Great Britain, which lived in the early Cretaceous (Barremian).
On the afternoon of January 7, 1983, the then fifty-five-year-old amateur palaeontologist and plumber William John Walker of London discovered a huge left thumb claw in the Smokejacks Pit in Wallis Wood, Ockley near Dorking, Surrey. Walker tried to split the nodule in which it was hidden with one hammer blow, but the specimen broke into many pieces. A week later he discovered the tip of the claw. His son-in-law then brought the remains to the Natural History Museum. On February 7, it was found that there were still more parts of the animal in the ground. From May 25, 1983, a team of eight volunteers associated with the museum excavated an almost complete skeleton, excavating a surface of five by two meters and salvaging fifty-four blocks.
