Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in South America

Gasparinisaura, a small member of the family of dinosaurs that included Iguanodon  was discovered in Argentina. Not very much of this dinosaur has been found, so scientists still aren't sure what it looked like. Members of this family are among the most common of all dinosaurs found, and its discovery in South America shows that the family spread through the entire Mesozoic world. It has also been suggested that Gasparinisaura may have had feathers.
