The therizinosaurus, while appearing as a fearsome clawed dinosaur, is actually a herbivore. Though used to gather food, its claws act as a powerful weapon against predators, allowing the therizinosaurus to make deadly rakes. The therizinosaurus is a popular creature to domesticate (or just chain up) for guard duty, as it is a fierce attacker when agitated.
