LOS ANGELES — A nursery of bizarre-looking dinosaurs known as therizinosaurs has been found in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. The nesting colony contained at least 17 clutches of eggs “Not only is this the largest colony of nonavian theropods, but this is the best documented site,” said study co-author Yoshitsugu Kobayashi, a vertebrate paleontologist at Hokkaido University in Japan, who presented the findings here at the 73rd annual Society of Vertebrate Paleontology conference.

Matthew Martyniuk wrote a really good post about dinosaur scales and why they’re more closely related to feathers than to lizard scales!!!
It seems to be becoming so increasingly likely that feathers of SOME sort are basal to dinosaurs and that is so exciting to me!
