Experts say the small, desert-dwelling carnivore may be part of the T.rex and Velociraptor lineage 

Researchers were able to give the public an advanced look at the dinosaur through computer graphics and fragments of bone found in excavations.

They used virtual reality to recreate the dinosaur which stands at about 3 feet tall and 5 feet long.

Scientists believe the little guy was carnivorous, fast and agile.

They named it Vespersaurus paranaensis because the Latin word “vesper” translates to west: A reference to the city where they found the fossils.
