Scientists say fossils found in Argentina's Patagonia region provide the first evidence that a family of long-necked, whip-tailed dinosaurs survived beyond the Jurassic period, when they were thought to have gone extinct.

More information at this link -- they're calling it the "tiniest" of the species, but "tiny" here is relative (9 meters, or about 19 feet)

Very interesting. I was just reading about this.

Supposedly diplodocid branch dinosaurs died out 145 million years ago, but these new fossils may be only from 66 million years ago?
