The Gigantoraptor is half bird, half dinosaur, not known, but what is .... is that it is a mystery.

Discovered in 2005 in the Gobi desert, lived 80 million years ago in the land of the Cretaceous period.
Its resemblance to the birds include anatomical features such as a peak instead of teeth in the jaws and the possibility of being covered with feathers. That's why we think it is the largest winged animal that has never existed. Whether flying or not.

Another question that appears on this prehistoric animal, half dinosaur, half bird, is your diet: it is thought that it was herbivorous, but on the other hand, has strong claws and is regarded as agile and fast moving, predatory characteristics. In short, we'll know later.

But how long the Gigantoraptor? For their measurements are 5 meters (17ft) tall to 8 meters (26ft) long and weighing about 2 tonnes. Oviraptoridae family, is the oldest. The Oviraptoridae are a group of dinosaurs known to include many feathered species. Gigantoraptor was much larger, about 35 times larger than its likely close relative, Caudipteryx.
