Europasaurus holgeri is a pretty extraordinary animal. It is a sauropod dinosaur that would've barely stood taller than a man -- as an adult!. What's interesting about the discovery of this animal, is that the investigators decided to try to explain the size of this animal. Head over to the Palaeoblog and check it out.
There were a number of interesting papers in this week's Nature and I simply haven't had time to cover them or use them in some way. I'm on it! I'm on it! Just give me some time!
