The Fruitadens was… puny! At a length of 2ft and a weight of 2 pounds this thing was microscopic compared to other dinosaurs that lived around it such as the allosaurus and diplodocus. In fact this dinosaur is so unbelievably small it’s the smallest of every ornithischian that ever walked the planet! The Fruitadens was discovered in Colorado in the 1970s but the dinosaur was officially alive 130-150 million years ago. It was also one of the key dinosaurs that supported feathered dinosaurs and was one of the first known feathered Dino’s. Now all answer the elephant in the room, did the Fruitadens eat fruit? No, sadly no fruits were existing in the Jurassic period so the Fruitadens had to stick with small vegetation. Now please take an important survey about which fruit the Fruitadens would most enjoy!
