Dino-Bird Found In China

I love reading about discoveries such as these! I like to ponder about what the earth must have been like back then, and the majesty of these creatures that once inhabited it. Read on:

The newly discovered dino, Gigantoraptor erlianensis—shown looming over much smaller dinosaurs—probably represents the largest feathered animal ever known, Chinese paleontologists say.

The beaked creature weighed about 1.5 tons (1.4 metric tons) and is the biggest toothless dinosaur found to date, according to a team led by Xing Xu from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology in Beijing.

Thankfully we have artists who through the work of the scientists can combine their talents to create such stunning images as the one above. It really is amazing how they can bring to life that, which has long been buried. Awesome!
