Assembled from the bones of various individuals, this photo
shows the fossil forearms and claws of the newly discovered dinosaur
species Falcarius utahensis.
Paleontologists say the
dinosaur, part of a group known as therizinosaurs, represents an
intermediate stage between meat-eaters such as Velociraptor, a dinosaur popularized by the
film Jurassic Park, and plant-eating therizinosaurs. The newfound species probably ate both plants and meat.
