New Feathered Dino Found in Utah

Paleontologists working at the base of Cedar Mountain in Utah have discovered the remains of hundreds to thousands of a previously unknown feathered dinosaur, which in life would have resembled a nightmarish ostrich on steroids.
Scientists think the new species, Falcarius utahensis, might have originated in North America.
They also believe the 13-feet-long dinosaur was “bizarre” not only because of its appearance, but because it may represent an evolutionary stage between its vicious, meat-craving Velociraptor distant relatives and its direct descendents, the chunky vegetarian therizinosaurs.
