Have you ever asked yourself, "what came first: the chicken or the egg?" Well, according to recent findings, the Sinornithosaurus (AKA the Chinese lizard-bird) came before either. There weren't actually any bodies to speak of, but there were fossils that showed plenty of proof.
The fossils seem to say that this turkey-sized bird lizard creature had large fangs that had little grooves inside them. These were supposedly used for biting and injecting venom. Also, the venom wasn't supposed to be lethal; it only would shock the prey so the bird monster could rip it to shreds and viciously devour it.
They also had feathers used for flight on the back of their legs, which showed that it was a four-winged gliding predator. These fossils were found in northeast China and they, according to Larry Martin (a KU scientist), are going to change they way people think of birds and will completely shake up what we know about birds. I would think so, what with the bird being a gliding raptor that could probably tear you in half. Really, I'm not surprised at all.

Most people might say that every Bigfoot sighting is either a pervert in a gorilla suit or an escaped ape from a local zoo trying to make its way home. Most people and their brother would say that every Bigfoot footprint was a fake. But, I bet my blog that no one could disprove a print and a sighting in the same place. I welcome you to San Antonio, Texas.
Local police say that a 'Bigfoot-type' creature was seen lumbering around highway 151 and Loop 1604. Someone called the police and said that a big hairy thing was dragging a deer carcass into the woods. The cops searched the area, but they never found anything.
"If one sighting is real, then that means something is out there," said Rick Tullos, who is a member of the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization. Tullos was looking for any telltale signs that Bigfoot tried to make a speedy escape, like bent fences or hairs latched onto trees. He and a News 4 WOAI news crew searched the area, but they found nothing. But, wait, what's this? A strange foot print that didn't like like that of a human's? OH MY GOD! WHO CALLED IT? I said at the beginning of this blog that there was going to be both a sighting and a print in the same area and, what do you know, I was right! Anyways, so Tullo said that he was going to test the print to see if it was legit. But, in the meantime, we just sit back and wait for another sighting.
