Dinosaur of the Month – Anzu wyliei!

By Robin Sissons

Anzu is a type of oviraptorosaur dinosaur which was recently described in March 2014 from fossils found in North and South Dakota. ‘Anzu’ is derived from Mesopotamian legends of a feathered demon of that name. Although it was found in 1998 and has been known for years, and even displayed in museums, it is only in this last month that it was named as a new species. It is the largest known oviraptorosaur from North America.
