This week’s video comes to us from Rob Nelson at Untamed Science. According to Rob:

Siats (pronounced SEE-OTTS) is a giant mega-predator (think T-Rex, but living at a different time). I just like saying that out loud — GIANT MEGA-PREDATOR! This is the first large, mega-predator found in the US in over 60 years, and it is the 2nd or 3rd largest carnivore EVER found in North America!

Wow. Enough said.
