Fame and Mice

As we have stated this week, Mussaurus is well-known among paleontologists and it is actually fairly well-known by the public as well. This is partly because of its bogus claim of being the smallest dinosaur; granted it was the smallest known dinosaur when originally discovered and the hatchlings and juveniles are still quite small for dinosaurs. The sheer number of websites with information, images, and videos of Mussaurus attests to the dinosaur's popularity. If that was not enough, there is also an electronic toy version of the dinosaur and, back after not seeing one of these information trading cards in a long time, Mussaurus is featured below, looking very angry for some reason.
