The dinosaur

Scientists say this "bird" weighed about 500 pounds.

(CNN) - Paleontologists unveiled a new dinosaur Wednesday, and judging from its name, you've got to see this thing.

This is a picture of what scientists have nicknamed the "Chicken from Hell." The new dinosaur's proper name is "Anzu Wyliei."

Scientists say this "bird" weighed about 500 pounds, stood about 10 feet high, and had very large hands with sharp claws.

A replication of its skeleton is on display inside Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum.
