Terror of the Mesozoic - a giant chicken

OK, a tyrannosaurian. But with feathers, giant carnivorous dinosaurs just don't look right.

Ancient ruler of China

Meert Yutyrannus huali: nine meters long, 1.5 metric tons, and the biggest feathered animal ever known.  Feathered from head to foot.    Somehow, it seems more dignified to be eaten by a giant reptile that at least looks like a reptile, not like Colonel Sanders' worst nightmare.  But that's the way nature goes - her OWN way.
