Comp­sog­nathus

Focus-Science and Technology - - Dinosaurs -

The small­est known di­nosaur un­til the 1990s when a va­ri­ety of dainty, feath­ered rel­a­tives be­gan to turn up in China. Lightly built, so great for small apart­ments.

SIZE: Turkey-sized but much lighter. It’s up to 1m in length but just 3kg in weight. PROS: Smaller size makes it an ideal lap-di­nosaur; it lives in packs so is highly so­cial. CONS: Needs con­stant sup­ply of small, live lizards to snack upon; bit of a fin­ger nib­bler.
