This is no SMALL discovery
Someone should inform Mr. Tusks!
I'm just a TINY bit pleased by this discovery.
I like how the author of the first one talks about "everyone" having nightmares about dinosaurs. "Why this dinosaur is so tiny, surely no child will be waking up screaming, night after night, at the sight of IT stalking their dreams in clown makeup and speaking with the voice of my fifth grade english teacher."

I've never figured out how they tell a juvenile specimen from a naturally small adult. What are the the telltale differences between this thing and the skeleton of a baby T-rex? Any paleontologists in the crowd wanna field that one?

It went into it a bit in the text of the articles. Short and simplistic version is that certain bones fuse together as you age, but are more disconnected when you're half-grown.
But you dress like one on the Internet.

You should get Todd Marshall (from the msnbc article) to guest illustrate!
