Smallest Dinosaur, A fossil of world’s smallest dinosaur has been found by an amateur fossil hunter – two years after excluding the discovery in the drawer of his bedside table. 51 years old, Dave Brockhurst first found the fossilized vertebrae of small non-flying dinosaurs in the world, known as the Ashdown Maniraptora in a brick factory near his home in East Sussex over two years.
Without thinking about it, remained the fossil in the drawer of his bed, until finally taking two paleontologists were able to discern the shape and size of its owner died long ago. “I knew there was something about her that was different, but I had no idea of ??what would become,” said Mr Brockhurst the Daily Mail
“I was in my drawer for a while because I did not know what to do with it.” 7 oz The dinosaur is believed he jumped on two legs and is believed to have been the size of a loaf of bread for their existence in the Cretaceous period.
“I could not believe it when I said it was an entirely new species,” said a delighted Mr Brockhurst its discovery.
“And then to discover what was possibly the world’s smallest dinosaur. Amazing.” Although only a small vertebrae was found, paleontologists believe that inspected the fossil bones of dinosaurs even be found in the coming years.
