Anzu wyliei: Scientists announce new dinosaur discovery


www.bbc.co.uk said:

US scientists have announced the discovery of a new species of dinosaur. Its fossils offer further clues to how the dinosaurs became extinct 66 million years ago.

Anzu wyliei is a strange, bird-like creature that has a bony crest on top of a beaky head and a long tail like a lizard.

The animal was identified from the partial remains of three skeletons collected in North and South Dakota.

What a great find and what a great nickname too.

Could this 'bird-like dinosaur' be one of the species to have survived whatever wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs and have direct descendants roaming around today?

I just imagined a meal at KFC ;)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Maybe it's an ancestor to the guinea chicken.  They are pretty mean.  Farmers use them as te "watchdog" of the barnyard.  They are very agressive to people they don't know.  They also create one hell of a racket.

Knew a man who used guinea's as watch dogs for the gas pump at his store.  He would keep a pile of corn right between the two pumps and the guinea's never wandered to far.
