Fossil Bones Of Smallest Dinosaur On Display
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
The Natural History Museum here in L.A. has made big news with a tiny discovery. It's the smallest dinosaur ever discovered in North America. Its little fossils were found in the late '70s in Colorado, but because of the huge backlog of bones, some just went on display now. The tinosaur was about four inches high, two feet long and weighed under two pounds. Perhaps he was a bite sized snack for some of his bigger paleo pals.
It's MORNING EDITION.
