That's awesome.

I can imagine other dinosaurs seeing it and going,"What the hell is that thing!?"

Seriously though, that's really cool.

i think this is the first ornithomimid with a sail...
Remember that chap about twenty years ago? I forget his name. Climbed Everest without any oxygen, came down nearly dead. When they asked him, they said why did you go up there to die? He said I didn't, I went up there to live.

Wow! Finally! So exciting to see the mystery finally solved, I remember those gigantic arms from a book that I had when I was a child. I always thought they would belong to something like a gigantic dromaeosaurid, now we get his beautiful wacky little (gigantic) thing. Once again my mind wanders off to the past, I see myself standing at the feet of this walking building, to catch the idea of how huge it is and how small I really am.

So amazing, thank you for sharing.
