Therizinosaurus meaning 'scythe lizard' is a genus of very large therizinosaurid that lived in Asia during the Late Cretaceous period in what is now the Nemegt Formation around 70 million years ago. Therizinosaurus was a colossal therizinosaur that could grow up to 30–33 ft long and weigh possibly over 3 tons. Like other therizinosaurs, it would have been a slow-moving, long-necked high browser equipped with a rhamphotheca (horny beak) and a wide torso for food processing. The forelimbs were particularly robust and had three fingers that bore unguals which, unlike other relatives, were very stiffened, elongated, and only had significant curvatures at the tips. Therizinosaurus had the longest known manual unguals of any land animal, reaching above 50 cm in length.
Prehistoric Therizinosaurus measures approximately in inches:
8.3 L x 5.7 W x 8.4 H.
