Europasaurus facts

this sauropod from the late Jurassic is believed to have been a dwarf species . Dwarfing occurred when animals were isolated on islands where their food supply was limited . The smaller the animal, the less the food it needed to survive and the less it grew. There were many large islands in Europe during this time were animals could become stranded.
