Tiny Sauropods lived in a Transylvanian Neverland, NOT a land called Honalee.
Get it RIGHT.
In other news, an old Hungarian Baron was vindicated.
A new study has confirmed that dwarf dinosaurs existed on an island in Transylvania, as well as explained how dinosaurs shrank during the Late Cretaceous at the Neverland-like place where they never really grew up.
Earlier, Hungarian baron Franz [ed: “Jackie Paper”] Nopcsa claimed that his sister in 1895 found bones belonging to dwarf dinosaurs on his family’s Transylvanian estate.
But now, according to a report in Discovery News, a new study not only confirms the existence of dwarf dinosaurs, but also explains how dinosaurs shrank at Hateg Island in Romania.
The diminutive dinosaurs included the titanosaurian sauropod Magyarosaurus, which had a body length of about 16 to 19 feet.
That’s impressive by human standards, but is miniature compared to a sauropod such as Argentinosaurus, which grew to be at least 82 feet long.
The sauropod dinosaur ‘Bothriospondylus’, originally named on the basis of Late Jurassic remains from England, is demonstrated to be invalid, and the characters used to diagnose it are shown to be obsolescent features which are widespread throughout Sauropoda.
