You guys: screw kittens, baby hippos, and corgi puppies. THIS is the cutest animal post EVER!
An adorable juvenile theropod skeleton was discovered in Bavaria, and seriously, click the link, it is freakin' CUTE.
Originally reported in the German newspaper Der Spiegel and later mentioned by the Nature news blog, the new specimen is a nearly complete juvenile theropod dinosaur. Even better, traces of skin and possible feathers can be seen on the fossil. Contrary to those reports, though, the specimen is geologically older than the 135 million years attributed to it in the press. The geological and preservational qualities of the fossil look identical to those from the famous Jurassic limestones that have yielded so many other exceptional fossils.
I wanna get that baby tattooed on my shoulder. SQUEEEE!
