About Psittacosaurus

Psittacosaurus was among the smallest and first of the Ceratopsia, or horned dinosaurs. It would have only stood about waist high to a full grown human. Psittacosaurus lived in Asia for almost 30 million years. This was an amazing feat, and is almost a dinosaur record for longevity. Like many other horned dinosaurs, Psittacosaurus was an agile and fast plant eater, which probably contributed to its long life.
