Therizinosaurus, (meaning “Scythe lizard”) lived about 70 million years ago, and was an herbivore most known for its very large claws (about 20′ in length) used mainly for pulling on branches or scratching bark off trees. There has been much debate, but most likely these claws could also be used as defense from predators, since it was most likely a very slow moving dinosaur. It was also a very large creature, measure around 30 feet in length and about 13-16 feet tall with a 7 foot long neck. It was prominently featured in the latest Jurassic World film, but as with all Jurassic Park and World films, it was greatly mischaracterized as a hunter and a fighter.
I chose to show the great height of the dinosaur and depicted it doing what it was probably doing most of its day, pulling down branches to eat leaves.
