Prehistoric island 'Jurassic Parkette' ruled by dwarf dinosaurs found

Paleontologists have discovered a prehistoric "lost world" which was ruled by miniature dinosaurs.

Sort of a pigmy Jurassic Park, the island was the hometown of dinos who were up to eight times smaller than some of their mainland cousins, reports The Telegraph.

Dwarf dinosaurs' fossils were found in what is now modern day Romania, in an area known as Hateg, which, 65 million years ago - when the creatures were living there - was an island, reports The Telegraph.

One of the fossils was of Magyarosaurus, which was little bigger than a horse, but was related to some of the largest creatures to ever walk the Earth - gigantic titanosaurs such as Argentinosaurus, which reached up to 100 feet long and weighed around 80 tons.
