I have found that small to large categories fit better when referring to
a group of dinosaurs...
small -- Compsognathus
medium -- Deinonychus
large -- Allosaurus (although there are huge representatives)
huge -- Tyrannosaurus
small -- (not used)
medium -- Shunosaurus
large -- Apatosaurus
huge -- Argentinosaurus
small -- Fabrosaurus
medium -- Camptosaurus
large -- Iguanodon
huge -- Lambeosaurus
