Therizinosaurus:("'reaping Lizard") lived in the late Cretaceous period (around 70 million years ago), and was one of the last and largest representatives of its unique group, the therizinosauria. Fossils of this species were first discovered in Mongolia and were originally thought to belong to a turtle-like reptile. It is known only from a few bones, including gigantic hand claws, from which it gets its name. Though the fossil remains are incomplete, like other members of their family, Therizinosaurus probably had small skulls atop long necks, with bipedal gaits and heavy, deep, broad bodies. Their forelimbs may have reached lengths of up to 2.5 meters or even 3.5 meters in the largest known specimen. Their hind limbs ended in four weight-bearing toes, unlike other theropod groups, in which the first toe was reduced to a dewclaw. The maximum size of Therizinosaurus at 10 meters in length and five tones in weight. They are the largest therizinosaurs known, and the largest known maniraptorans. Their most distinctive feature was the presence of gigantic claws on each of the three digits of their front limbs. These were common among therizinosaurs but especially large in Therizinosaurus; probably reaching just under 1 meter in length and being the longest known from any animal, relatively straight only gradually tapering into a point, and extremely narrow, transversely flattened. The feeding habits of Therizinosaurus are unknown since no skull material has ever been found that could indicate their diet. However, like other therizinosaurs, they were probably primarily herbivorous.
This dinosaur measures approximately 17 cm from nose to tail and is approximately 18 cm tall.
