Re: Lenght of an "average" dinosaur? 6.7 m



in the JP novel, Grant once stated something like "despite the majority of people imagine dinosaurs as a giants, an average dinosaur was about a size of a cow" (not exact quote).

- IIRC he says sheep, not cow.
- Before you think this is small, remind yourself that the average mammal is the size of a rat. (I assume this estimate was arrived at by the same undeclared method as the "average dinosaur"...)
