An illustration showing the size of a Gigantoraptor is released during a news conference announcing its discovery in Beijing June 13, 2007. China has uncovered the skeletal remains of a gigantic, surprisingly bird-like dinosaur, which has been classed as a new species and genus. Eight metres long and standing at twice the height of a man at the shoulder, the fossil of the feathered but flightless Gigantoraptor erlianensis was found in the Erlian basin in Inner Mongolia, researchers wrote in the latest issue of Nature. The researchers said the dinosaur was discovered in April 2005.
