Footprint discovered of a cat-sized dinosaur

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A single footprint left by a cat-sized dinosaur around 100 million years ago has been discovered in China by an international team of paleontologists.

"This footprint was made by a herbivorous, armored dinosaur known broadly as a stegosaur – the family of dinosaurs that includes the famed stegosaurus," Dr Romilio said.

"Like the stegosaurus, this little dinosaur probably had spikes on its tail and bony plates along its back as an adult.

"With a footprint of less than six centimeters, this is the smallest stegosaur footprint known in the world.

Or, to be succinct, they have found that juvenile stegosaurs were digitigrade while adults were plantigrade.
