    A new dinosaur which lived on earth more than 60 million years ago has been discovered.

    Scientists in the US describe the creature as a cross between an emu and a crocodile.

    It stood more than 1.5 metres tall, weighed around 200kg, had a beak, no teeth, claws and was covered in feathers.
