Dinosaur News

Scientists have announced the discovery of the remains of a previously unknown species of pliosaur that lived during the Jurassic period. The pliosaur was discovered on the arctic island of Svalbard and is estimated to have been 15 meters long and weighing 45 tons. Its head was twice as large as a Tyrannosaurus’ head. A different team of scientists have announced the discovery of the smallest carnivorous dinosaur discovered in North America. They’ve found a chicken-sized creature that ran on two legs and lived during the late Cretaceous. The tiny dinosaur has been named Hesperonychus. Originally discovered in 1982, the bones were thought to have belonged to an immature dinosaur and only recently began to be studied.
