Missqouted about Deinonychus claws

I've seen one of my post has been missqouted, and I didn't fell like I 
need or even wanted to correct people, but now I see that I need to. No 
hard feelings.

NO!!!! I'm being misqouted or missunderstood. What I ment, and it seems 
didn't make clear, is that the orginal specimen had a large really 
curved claw, and other specimens have a less curved large claw. I 
didn't mean there was just one large claw found. I was talking about 
the 'curveature' of the claw. Sorry for the miss information.
