Ladies and gentlemen, sorry for a season without dealing the blog as much as I would have liked, but that is over. Moreover, nothing happens, the dinosaurs are timeless and, in gratitude and with intent to redeem myself, I want to show you one of the most picturesque dinosaurs that ever lived. This is the Chirostenotes, the "narrow hands."
You see the image below, you will understand what the name refers Chirostenotes or "close hand" ... no trick, its hands were narrow.
The "hands" of this saurian, were long and narrow, with very long fingers ending in sharp claws. That is the main feature.
Another feature of this prehistoric animal was its head. Look at the image below.
You know who is? As this animal is a Cassowary, a bird now living in Australia and New Guinea ... and is very aggressive. It is thought that the ridge has the Cassowary is similar to that which took the Chirostenotes. In fact, it seemed a little ... even thought this lizard was a bird. It had feathers, was bipedal, lakes and light arms and a crest like a Cassowary. But it really was not a bird.
Chirostenotes's jaw was sort of a parrot but was full of teeth. Media about 3 meters long and when were stood as tall as the average man. Grew to weigh no more than 60 kg. And think were fast and agile hunters who traveled at high speed and making great leaps and light careers.
It lived 75 million years ago in what is now Canada. And it is known today more than ever, especially for children, as it is one of the protagonists of the series of drawings Dinotren. Is smug and was known as Keenan.
