Paleontologists have uncovered a bizarre-looking, vegetarian dinosaur in China's Gobi desert, dubbed the Suzhousaurus megatherioides (a therizinosaur):

"These are without doubt some of the strangest dinosaurs ever found," said Matt Lamanna, a paleontologist at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

"They looked kind of like a gigantic plucked turkey."
