Many families all across America celebrate Thanksgiving with a turkey, but don’t expect to have Diluvicursor pickeringi, on that dinner plate. Paleontologist in South Eastern Australia have recently discovered a new breed of dinosaur. This new discovery rapidly gained fame and interest from other paleontologists, mostly due to its odd size. The new dinosaur was the size of an American Turkey.

This 113-million year old dinosaur was discovered in rocks near Cape Otway In the state of Victoria. This newly discovered creature was named after the late paleontologist, David Pickering. All of these findings were first published by the University of Queensland School of Biological Sciences, by a doctor  Dr. Matt Herne, with the help of his fellow peers. It has been said that Dr. Herne  has commented on the newly found dinosaur with starting with, “Diluvicursor shows for the first time that there were at least two distinct body-types among closely related ornithopods  ̶  small, two-legged grazing dinosaurs  ̶  in this part of Australia.”

This dinosaur identifies as a Leaellynasaura, a softly structures, with a jaw dropping long tail, while other other, Diluvicursor, had a more strong built, with a short tail. The Diluvicursor Pickeringi was believed to have immensely powerful leg retracting muscles, leading it to a conclusion of it having a great sense of speed.

With this new discovery, Matt Herne’s hopes to discover more species of dinosaur in the near future, he states from a press release from the University of Queensland. With most of the world that isn’t inhabited, the possibility of this occurring is incredibly high.
