Simulation showing real size comparison of humans and dinosaurs has people shocked they even existed

People were surprised with how small some of them were

From the way dinosaurs are portrayed in movies like Jurassic Park, you'd think they would all tower over us.

One of the largest ever dinosaurs to have once walked the Earth was Titanosaur. As per its name, the late herbivore is thought to have stood at a staggering 122 feet tall - as much as ten times as tall as your average African elephant.

Now, if any of you have seen The Meg, you'll know how small humans are compared to the infamous Megalodon.

While the shark portrayed in The Meg was a little bit bigger than the size of an actual Megalodon, you still wouldn't wanted to have run into one.

The huge sharks are thought to have gone extinct around 3.6 million years ago, and would grow to be between 15 and 18 metres in length.

We're typically made to believe that colossal dinosaurs were the most prominent of all the dinosaurs, but people have since been left surprised to learn that there were many, many more.

Not only were there many more, but a lot of them were actually pretty small too.

In a video doing the rounds on social media, dozens of dinosaurs are shown in comparison to a young adult male - and it's safe to say it's left people surprised.

"I can't believe these dinosaurs existed," someone said, as someone else echoed: "Who knew there were this many Dinosaurs!?!"

"Didn’t realize how many were petable size," added another.

A third went on: "I thought the pterodactyl was bigger."

FYI, it isn't clear just how accurate the video is, so maybe take it with a pinch of salt...

While dinosaurs have long been extinct, in recent years one has been discovered with the skin on its face still in tact.

Hailed as one of the most well-preserved dinosaur fossils, the Borealopelta markmitchelli was believed to date back anywhere between up to 145 and 100.5 million years ago.

Dr. Donald Henderson, curator of dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, called the dino discovery 'one-in-a-billion find'.

As to how the flesh was preserved for so long, Henderson said it was down to 'a nice set of conditions in the seabed that had very low biological activity that led to that preservation'.

It took a whopping five and a half years to separate the fossil from the stone it was encased within, but it's safe to say it was well worth the wait.
