A New Dinosaur Was Just Discovered By Scientists—And The Internet Is Into It

Scientists recently discovered a new species of dinosaur that inhabited the earth 113 million years ago, roaming between Australia and Antarctica. The find included the tail, right ankle, and foot. 

It's called Diluvicursor pickeringi. Say that five times fast.

D. pickeringi's most distinguishing feature was its size — roughly that of a turkey.

Some weren't so taken with the little fellows:

For some folks, the 113-million-year time frame didn't sound accurate:

And how did scientists discover this new species?

Poor little guy.

What else do we know about this turkey?

It was a runner with long foot bones. It ate leaves, pine nuts, mosses, and maybe fruit. Aside from its small body size the D. pickeringi' s lengthy tail would have actually made it around 7½ feet long.

"Named from the lower Albian of the Eumeralla Formation in southeastern Australia" (according to the original publication in the medical journal PeerJ), we're left wondering just one thing—couldn't they just have called it Turkeyosaurus Rex? But seriously, the real question on everyone's mind is whether or not it warrants a new installment of the Jurassic Park franchise.

We can only hope.
