About Mussaurus

Very little is known about Mussaurus because few adult bones have been found. While there are few adult specimens, many baby Mussaurus dinosaurs have been found in the fossil record. This is why Mussaurus was named "Mouse Dinosaur." For many years scientists thought that the baby dinosaurs were full grown. Mussaurus was a member of the Prosauropoda group. It probably spent its days moving slowly from place to place in search of plants to eat.
