Therizinosaurus cheloniformis (S/F)

Therizinosaurus cheloniformis is a species of large theropod in the family Therizinosauridae. It lived in what is now the Gobi Desert during the Maastrichtian age of the late Cretaceous period, roughly 70 million years ago. This dinosaur’s genus name means “scythe reptile,” referring to the three-foot-long (almost one meter) claws on its hands, which it probably used for feeding and self-defense. Its species name means “turtle-like,” since its fragmentary remains were originally assumed to be from a giant sea turtle.
