Anzu wyliei

Anzu wyliei was discovered by Fred Nuss of Nuss Fossils. Fred and his bride, Candace, spent their honeymoon hunting fossils when Fred discovered the site in November of 1998. This large theropod is the largest dinosaur of its type from North America. It was fast and ferocious, with legs built for speed, forelimbs more than a meter long with large, sharp claws, a sharp beak and almost certainly a bad attitude. Becoming popularly known as the “Chicken from Hell”, Anzu wyliei will make a fabulous addition to your displays, telling a story of diversity at the end of the age of dinosaurs.
