Discovery of a mini T-Rex called the Raptorex was recently announced, after being discovered in a lake bed in Inner Mongolia years ago. Perhaps this mini dinosaur, 1/100th of the size of the T-Rex, should be nick-named the Wee-Rex?

Archaeologists and paleontologists have long been researching dinosaurs in China’s northern Gansu province, but this new discovery makes it seem likely that hoards of scientists will be flocking to Inner Mongolia to look for relatives of the Raptorex.
