What do you get when you cross a velociraptor and a chicken? Anzu Wyliei.

The new dinosaur species was discovered by scientists at an excavation site in North Dakota. That, coupled with the bird-like qualities of the dino, has earned the newly discovered species the nickname “Chicken from Hell.” The results were published in the Plos One Journal on Wednesday. Anzu Wyliei belongs to the Oviraptorosaurian, or dinosaurs with feathers, category with the Archaeopteryx.
