Giant Killer Parrot Dinosaur Discovered
Well, its head looks like a parrot to me, anyway. Maybe it was not a "killer," since it had a toothless beak. But the rest of my title is accurate, I think.
It was the size of a T-Rex, but how did this thing kill stuff? By stepping on it?
Gigantoraptor, researchers say, might be the creature that gave rise to the flying, feathered friends we know today.
Maybe. But if that is the case, it needed several more generations to do it, or several billion. From the photos, this thing was not on the verge of taking flight.
Any thoughts on the adaptive superiority of this? Did it make other animals die laughing?
