<is described as being over-all similar to _Mononykus_: large,
flightless, long neck, long tail, and the same stubby, single-clawed
forelimbs that have made _Mononykus_ such an enigma. The skull adds one
significant item to the argument over whether alvarezsaurids were
dinosaurs or birds: _Suvuuia_ has prokinetic jaws, a feature previously
found only in birds.
There are no other details in the wire article I have.>
Not even how long it was or its estimated mass?
