One-Fingered Dino

Meet the first known one-fingered dinosaur—a parrot-sized relative of the Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor has been discovered in northeastern China.

Called the Linhenykus monodactylus, this two-legged carnivore used its one finger for digging. They may have dug for termite nests, according to scientists.
