Were dinosaurs skinnier than we thought?

It looks as though they may have been.  If this is so, it's going to mean that a lot of stuff that's been extrapolated from what we thought we knew, ranging from food requirements to speeds, will need to be re-done.

...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

I'm not sure if this surprises me or not.

But I am surprised to learn that an elephant is a reptile!!!!!

Can we really compare reptile to mammal, why not do a comparison to a modern crocodile, wouldn't that be better.

On the other hand, to look at the reptiles of today, they are not heavy by comparison to their bone structure.
If brains were made of dynamite, I wouldn't have enough to blow my nose.
