Therizinosaurus - The Turtle Beast by nemo-ramjet Therizinosaurus - The Turtle Beast by nemo-ramjet
When Therizinosaurus was first discovered, its remains were thought to belong to a gigantic, turtle-like animal, hence its species name, "cheloniformis."

What if this was indeed the case?

He's really neat. Is he filled with meat?

*gets booed for obvious MST3K reference*

Reminds me of the Chinese soft-shelled tortoise. C:

I have this image of a Therizinosaurus floating at the surface with all these prehistoric birds resting on its shell.

I remember now, When they first discovered Therizinosaurus they thought the claws were actually the ribs of a giant turtle. Of course over time they found both complete arms and the discovery of other better preserved Therizinosauroids helped to reclassify it.
