Difference bettween talon and claws in any context please.
Talon is usually only applied to birds. Cats have claws, hawks have talons.
Thanks Chris K. As I'm better in English I realise that I know nearly nothing. Why the hell is English so plenty of vocabulary?...
Partly because we have vocabulary from two different parents. "Talon" is derived from Latin by way of French; "claw" is from a Germanic root.
Separate names with a comma.
