Prehistory: Largest feathered Dinosaur

This is a little late in the year for a prehistory entry but here is one anyway. This fossil discovered in China is over 125 million years old and is the largest feathered dinosaur every discovered. Scientists say the adult was at lest 30 feet long and weighed over a ton and a half. And I thought an elephant stepping on my toe might hurt! According to the Journal Nature, these fossils provide " direct evidence for the presence of extensively feathered gigantic dinosaurs.”
