Ken Ham: How Did Dinosaurs Fit on the Ark?

In his What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs, Ken Ham explains how dinosaurs could fit on the ark.
Many people think of dinosaurs as large creatures that would never have fi t into the Ark. But the average size of a dinosaur (based on the skeletons found over the Earth) is about the size of a sheep.39 Indeed, many dinosaurs were relatively small. For instance, Struthiomimus was the size of an ostrich, and Compsognathus was no bigger than a rooster. Mussaurus (‘mouse reptile’)  was not much bigger than a mouse. Only a few dinosaurs grew to extremely large sizes (e.g. Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus), but  even they were not as large as the largest animal in the world today, the blue whale. (Reptiles have the potential to grow as long as they live. Thus, the large dinosaurs were probably very old ones.)

Dinosaurs could fit on the ark because they were actually very small. Who on earth is the source for this strange claim? Scroll down the reference section to number 39:

39. M. Crichton, The Lost World (New York: Ballantine Books, 1995), p. 122. ‘Dinosaurs were mostly small … . People always think they were huge, but the average dinosaur was the size of a sheep or a small pony.’ Horner, The Complete T. rex, p. 124. ‘Most dinosaurs were smaller than bulls.’

So creationists are using the sequel to Jurassic Park to backup their desperate realizations. Words fail me.
