NEW DINOSAUR ALERT!

I like to think that this Deinocheirus mirificus is strutting along to some seriously funky music.  

Scientists found the Deinocheirus’ giant arms in Mongolia 1965. Now they’ve figured out the body that goes with them, thanks to a Canadian paleontologist who managed to link an excavated sample with a poached fossil found in a Belgian shop.
