1. A stegosaurus was twice as heavy as a car, but had a brain only as big as a kitten?

3. Some believe that the Tyrannosaurus rex might have had feathers!

4. Pachyrhinosaurus (the kind of dinosaur Patchi was) means “thick nose reptile”, probably named for the pad of bone it had on its face, instead of horns or a brow!
