Segnosaurus was a therizinosaurid dinosaur that was a herbivore/omnivore. It's name means "Slow Lizard". It could get as long as 23 feet and it was a thick-bodied dinosaur with sharp claws. Little was known about it for a long time, until the discovery of close relative Therizinosaurus. Its fossils found in Asia and it lived during the Late Cretaceous Period. Its claws were possibly for self defense against predators.
