Young seems to be the new Dino World

Non-dinosaurs non - avian new species, Cretaceous Research Center as described in the latest issue, the world may be the smallest known dinosaurs.

A small dinosaur, dubbed "Ashdown maniraptoran," length measures about one foot in the United Kingdom, mining. It lived during the Lower Cretaceous of 145 to 100 million years before the time runs.

The new fossil, discovered by scientists to be the world's smallest dinosaurs, which anaaupacarika "Ashdown maniraptoran that," dubbed as 100 million years ago were considered. Search the latest findings, Non-dinosaur non - avian, a new species, Cretaceous Research, the Journal has been the most contentious issue. The remains of a small neck bones and the southern United Kingdom, was excavated and no more than 15.7 (40 cm) inches long period.
"Wight Surrey, East Sussex and the Isle of all the hotspots that are often new dinosaur species, which is the country that may be searched more thoroughly studied than any other in the world is not a bad showing for" Naish said.

It turns out that the discovered fossil, and Sweetman, a posterior cervical vertebra, the possibility of previously undocumented species belonged to dinosaurs, because there is no name for the Dinos in the same area - maniraptoran theropod from the ages of rocks.

Mother dinosaur skull, not because they are mining, food researchers about a new Dino can not make firm statements.

"The other is based on maniraptorans oviraptorosaurs and other small, it was omnivore, insects and small animals, including leaves and fruit, eating" Naish said.

He added that, as in most theropods, Ashdown maniraptoran tail in a horizontal position to keep his body and walked with it.

This is the beginning of the world's smallest dinosaur fossils - was found by amateur hunter, but his bedside Drover 2 years for recognition of the importance of not keeping his invention. 51-year-old collector Dave Brockhurst Bexhill, East Sussex, at his home near a brickworks in the fossilized bones of animals on long foot staggered. And he did not think Drover is eventually held two (Dr Darren Naish and Dr. Steve Sweetman) palaeontologists determine the size and shape of the owner of a long extinct until they were able to take.
