"The most complete skeleton of a type of pot-bellied dinosaur, a
therizinosaur, has been discovered in southern Utah."

So, is the vernacular name for therizinosaurs "pot-bellied dinosaurs"
now? (Didn't it used to be "scythe-clawed dinosaurs" or something? Oh,
how the mighty have fallen....)

One amazing thing about this discovery is that it's a new species, but
is being assigned to an existing genus!
