Dino Bird

Just when one set of researchers say birds and dinosaurs are not related, along comes Psittacosaurus gobiensis (“parrot reptile of the Gobi”); the world’s first known nut-eating dinosaur.

I’ll just go ahead and call it “Dino Bird.”

After seeing a hyacinth effortlessly crack open a macadamia nut, I can’t help but be in awe of the macaw’s amazing beak. I can only imagine the powerful crunch a 3-foot-long Dino Bird could manage with its beak. That would definitely give new meaning to the big, bad bite. And I can’t help but imagine these Dino Birds cracking nuts the size of coconuts … perhaps that’s the next find: Jurassic nuts.
