Mussaurus, the Mouse Lizard
(image source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mussaurus)
Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Laura Owsley discuss Mussaurus, a teeny tiny dinosaur in a family of giant dinosaurs, except those tiny fossils were actually of babies and the adults were fairly large anyways. Your one novelty was a lie, Mussaurus. From the Early Jurassic, this 20-foot sauropodomorph had a fairly cute name that was also fairly unrepresentative of its actual being. I mean, this was neither mouse nor lizard, and was far bigger than either as well. What you Mussaurus, a man or a mouse? Neither, you’re a basal sauropod. Idiot.
