(Ada Lizard) was a bird-like carnivorous dinosaur
that lived 70 million years ago, throughout the late Cretaceous
Period. (The name comes from the name of a mythological
evil demon of Mongolia.)
Adasaurus is found in The Field Museum which was named by Rinchen Barsbold in 1983. It has been described as being very alike to Archeopteryx
and its discovery added fuel to the present debate concerning dinosaurs
and birds. Only unfinished fossils have been found, all in Mongolia,
but based mainly in the Gobi desert region.
At six feet (two meters) long and two feet (.7 meters) tall,
normally about he size of a large dog, Adasaurus weighed
only 33 pounds (15 kilograms) and may have had feathers.
dinosaurs, it was bipedal with a big, sickle-like
claw on each foot.
Aspects of the Adasaurus dinosaurs pelvis, which is very alike to that of
ornithischians, lead some scientists to believe that it is actually
more closely connected to birds than to dinosaurs.
