The weirdest fossil dinosaur I've ever found had to be Shuuvia, a relative of Mononykus. It's weird because no one would ever have imagined an animal that looked like that would have ever lived—with really powerful, but extremely short forelimbs. These theropod dinosaurs had bodies about the size of a goose, but with long legs. They were both discovered in Mongolia, and had feathers. They were both birds, but they really didn't look like them.
