From the name itself, you can already guess that clawed carnivores are carnivores that would have claws. They will use these claws in order to tear the meat of their prey. They will also use this in order to protect themselves from other animals who may also be hunting for the same prey that they are hunting. An example of a clawed carnivore is the bobcat.

This is known to have powerful jaws and very strong claws that will allow the prey to be caught immediately. Once the carnivores use their claws, it will be harder for their prey to run away. This is the time when they would start using their jaws in order to eat. They also have powerful jaws that will be enough to kill their prey immediately.

Clawed carnivores are simply carnivores (flesh-eating animals) that have claws. Claws are one of the characteristics and adaptations of most but not all carnivores. Claws are curved like pointed appendages found on the toe or (at the end) finger in most reptiles, mammals, and birds.

The claws in carnivores vary in length and in shape. Claws assist these animals in climbing, gripping, digging, and slicing. Claws are also useful for defense and playing around. It particularly helps carnivores grip, capturing and tearing their prey. Claws also help them from slipping at high speed. Other adaptations of carnivores are Sharp teeth, powerful jaw, and paw.
