Alxasaurus (pronounced AWL-shah-SAWR-us) which means "Alxa Desert lizard" is a genus of therizinosauroid theropod dinosaur. From the Early Cretaceous of Inner Mongolia. It is one of the earliest known members of the superfamily Therizinosauroidea, but it still possessed the body shape - including the long neck, short tail, and long hand claws - of later therizinosauroids. Like other members of this group, it was a bipedal herbivore with a large gut to process plant material. Several specimens are known and the largest was a little over 12 feet (3.8 m) long.
