A Tiny New Porcupine-Like Dinosaur Discovered

These little guys are called Pegomastax and they are believed to have been vegetarians despite those self-sharpening little fangs. It was also only 45 cms tall. Adorable!

Paul Sereno, who authored a study of these newly discovered creatures, says that he looked something like a “nimble two-legged porcupine.” I want one!
