In this photo taken Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014, study lead author Lee Yuong-nam, director of the Geological Museum, speaks to the media during a news conference in Seoul, South Korea, Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014. Nearly 50 years ago, scientists found bones of two large, powerful dinosaur arms in Mongolia and figured they had discovered a fearsome critter with killer claws. Now scientists have found the rest of the dinosaur and have new descriptions for it: goofy and weird. The beast probably lumbered along on two legs like a cross between TV dinosaur Barney and Jar Jar Binks of Star Wars fame. It was 16 feet tall and 36 feet long, weighing seven tons, with a duckbill on its head and a hump-like sail on its back. Throw in those killer claws, tufts of feathers here and there, and no teeth - and try not to snicker. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)
