T-Rex was a giant bird?!

If you've ever been to a natural history museum, you probably know that dinosaurs and birds are close relatives. So it should be no surprise to anyone that T-Rex wasn't a giant green lizard, but actually a giant feathered bird-like creature. And yet... I can't help but be surprised.

What do you think? I guess it does explain the tiny arms. I think I probably would still have run away screaming. Maybe more so...
