Dinosaur Discoveries

Dinosaur Discoveries

Month: September, 2012

Fossils discovered in northeastern China of a previously unrecognized huge dinosaur reveal that it was the largest known feathered creature to exist, living or extinct.

The new species, which was at least 30 feet long, was a distant relative of the scaly Tyrannosaurus rex.

The species has been named Yutyrannus huali, which means “beautiful feathered tyrant.”

For more on this discovery, including an artist’s impression of this species, visit The New York Times.
