What do most of us know about dinosaurs? Some of them were really big, some of them had feathers, and they all went extinct 66 million years ago... Okay, but what if I told you that there were chicken-sized dinosaurs? Or that some dinosaurs had fur? Or that they aren’t really extinct?

SUMMARY:
- With a max length of 40 ft and a weight of about 10 tons, the T-Rex was a pip-squeak compared to the biggest land dinosaur: the Argentinosaurus.
- As much as we’re used to thinking dinosaurs were the hugest things on earth, well, they weren’t. In fact, the largest known animal in this planet’s history is the blue whale.
- According to scientists from the University of Berkeley, birds aren’t just distant relatives of dinosaurs but are dinosaurs themselves!
- As more fossils were discovered over time, paleontologists later concluded that most dinosaurs, including the T-Rex and its kin, had feathers attached to their bones.
- The not-yet-hatched chicks grew with lower limbs resembling those of ancient lizards. Apart from purely scientific theory, this experiment showed that birds could indeed one day be turned into real dinos.
- The smallest known dinosaur to this day is called Compsognathus, and it was just about the size of a chicken.
- Carnivorous dinosaurs, or meat eaters, had a much larger brain. So, all those images showing this predator with a brain the size of a walnut are simply not accurate.
- A 2018 study published in the journal Nature Communications showed that fossilized dino dandruff could be proof that the ancient lizards also shed their skins!
- Paleontologists from the University of Bristol suggested that some Pterosaurs might’ve had several types of body covering at the same time. They had feathers on their head and wings, while their whole body was covered in soft fuzzy fur.
