Now scientists have found the rest of the dinosaur and have new descriptions for the dinosaur: “goofy” and “weird.” The dinosaur probably lumbered along like a cross between TV dinosaur Barney and Jar Jar Binks of Star Wars fame: 16-feet tall, 36-foot long, 7-tons with a duckbill on its head and a hump-like sail on its back. Throw in those killer claws, tufts of feathers here and there, and no teeth _ and try not to snicker. And if that’s not enough, it ate like a giant vacuum cleaner.
