New Dinosaur Looks Like Duck, Croc, Ostrich and Swan Put Together

The whole skeleton was found curled up in a sandstone rock.

The full curled-up skeleton of a new dinosaur was found curled up in sandstone. It looks like a duck, croc, ostrich, and swan were all put together, even though it is only 18 inches tall. The creature, which roamed 75 million years ago in what is now Mongolia, had a bill like a duck, teeth like a croc, a swanlike neck, and sharp, pointy claws. It walked like an ostrich but had flippers like a penguin, and could swim. This is the first time that a two-legged, meat-eating dinosaur has shown swimming ability.
