This dinosaur is named Pegomastax Africanus. Yes in fact I have heard about this before. I don't know a lot but if I can remember the part of the name, Africanus stands for Africa. This animal is found in South Africa. See Africa? Look at the name. Ok now you know where it was found. To me, it looks like a very small messed up werewolf with a mixture of a porcupine. Well that's what I know!

Ok so from what I know, this dino called the Pegomastax Africanus is from Africa. Africanus stands for Africa. You can see it. I think it looks like a small messed up werewolf with a mixture of a porcupine. It is the smallest dino ever found too.

The mini dinosaur lived 200 million years ago and now a paleontologist named Paul Sereno found it in 1983 and now just revealed his discovery in October.

The "mini dino" has made BIG news since just last month. The fossil was found in the 1960s in South Africa, but it just sat inside a drawer at Harvard University until 1983. Then Paul Sereno found it. After he found this discovery he has spent years traveling the world looking for more fossils, but he hasn't found any... (yet)

The mini dinosaur is a Pegomastax africanus that lived in Afica about 200 million years ago. IT is a plant eater and it has sharp teeth that are used to slice through plants and for self-defense. The fossil was actually found in the 1960s in South Africa and it sat in a drawer at Harvard University in Massachusetts until 1983 when Sereno saw it. It is also one of the smallest dinosaurs found, it is a odd-looking dinosaur which wasn't much bigger than a house cat. It was likely yo be covered with thin spikes. Sereno would describe it as a bid, a vampire bat, and a porcupine.

This new Dino is called a Pegomastax africanus. it was found by a man named Paul Sereno. Paul, who is a Paleontologist, thinks it was a plant eater that would have the looks of a vampire bat, a bird, and a porcupine. I think it is a very interesting animal, but it is sort of creepy if you see this dino for the first time.

The dino was found in South Aftrica and paleontologist Paul sereno said, "I would describe it as a bird, a vampire bat, and a porcupine,". Also, it's a plant eater and has big fangs to eat\rip through plants and it can be used for self defense! I think it's small and cute but it's DEADLY!

Bryan said...

The mini dino does look a little creepy but it has spikes and sharp teeth for self defense.
