DINO-A-DAY #57: Therizinosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Therizinosaurus
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Mongolia, 1940s
FUN FACT: Therizinosaurus’ name means “scythe lizard,” referring to its enormous scythe-like claws that look awkward but could probably take down prey in one quick swipe.
