Chicken from Hell

Newly discovered species of dinosaur are coming thick and fast lately. This is an artist's impression of the latest find: Anzu wyliei, nicknamed "the chicken from Hell". The partial remains of three specimens were found in a geological formation known as Hell Creek in Dakota, USA, and identified by the department of palaeobiology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC. The size of a small car, Anzu wyliei had feathers and claws on its upper arms, a reptilian tail, a toothless beak and a hollow, bony crest. It's another link between dinosaurs and birds (CLICK).
