Midget Dinosaurs!

from Sploid

Scientists have discovered the remains of tiny dinosaurs in Germany, with some of the little monsters barely measuring 6 feet long!

Despite their dainty size, the mini-dinos are rocking the very foundations of paleontology.

The largest known dinosaurs - including the massive Argentinosaurus, Sauroposeidon and Brachiosaurus - are also from the sauropod family.

"We're talking here about a spectacular find, with skull material, which is very rare in sauropods," researcher Octavio Mateus said of the 150-million-year-old fossils.

The friendly vegetarian buddies stood about as tall as a modern-day horse, experts said.

They lived on islands in what is now Germany.
