This undated photo provided by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows the blade-like slashing claw from the second toe of the foot, on a Canadian quarter for scale, of Hesperonychus elizabethae. Canadian researchers say they have found the smallest meat-eating dinosaur yet discovered in North America. The Hesperonychus elizabethae is a pint-sized cousin of velociraptor, weighing in at 4-to-5 pounds (2 kilograms). The bones of the small raptor were discovered among fossils that had been collected a quarter-century ago and remained in a museum drawer (AP Photo/Nicholas Longrich, University of Calgary)
