Kongonaphon kely or tiny bug slayer was an extremely small ancestor to dinosaurs and pterosaurs (extinct flying reptiles).
The fossils of Kongonaphon Kely were discovered in 1998 as part of an expedition by an American–Malagasy crew made in Madagascar
Analysis of body size throughout the history of dinosaurs shows that ancestrally medium-sized animals evolved into very small animals.
Kongonaphon, a Triassic vertebrate would have been around 10 cm tall and about 30 cm long.
This then evolved into dinosaurs and pterosaurs which could reach enormous sizes.
In India, Triassic vertebrate fossils of similar age have been found in a band of rocks extending across Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Odisha, but thus far nothing like Kongonaphon has been found there.
