A not-so-scary T. Rex

It’s been a while since I last wrote about dinosaurs, over a year in fact, so I thought I’d share this bit of news:

Scientists have found a dinosaur they think is a cousin to the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex.  They’ve called it Linhenykus monodactylus

Just one thing:

It’s tiny.

Really tiny.

Well, okay, about the size of a large parrot.

Which is still really tiny compared to its distant cousin.

(If it helps, it probably ate insects.)

(Okay, it doesn’t help!)
