Jurassic Pets

Paleontologists from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History have announced the discovery of the two smallest horned dinosaurs ever: Gryphoceratops (pictured above) and Unescopceratops. Sure, they're not actually horned, but these guys are cousins of the great Styracosaurus, Chasmosaurus, and Triceratops. Neither Gryphoceratops or Unescopceratops were longer than a meter, putting them at about the size of a beagle.

Once scientists get their acts together and bring back the dinosaurs, these guys are at the top of my list of possible dinopets.

I want one! Where do I sign up eh? Ha ha! That's pretty rad!

If you could have any dinosaur as a pet (assuming it was well trained and wouldn't eat you as a light snack or accidentally step on you hehe) which would you want?

I'm a pretty big triceratops fan so they get my vote! Gee... Looks like I'm going to need a bigger backyard! Ha ha!

The size of a beagle?! That would be cooler than having a pet Siberian fox. Sign me up!
