Small Either Way

Aquilops was small regardless of the moniker or adjective used to describe it. Various news outlets reported it as being the size of a cat or the size of a rabbit; these are similarly sized for the most part at least. The point is that Aquilops was a very small ceratopsian dinosaur. This sort of animal captured the imagination of the public no matter the descriptive word. The video from Science is OK earlier in the week illustrates how popular an animal like Aquilops is in the general media. Aquilops has even been the subject of a podcast. It is a little new to science to be a regular in scientific books, but an entire podcast about the dinosaur is a modern equivalent on some levels and means that the dinosaur is truly popular in our modern society.
