Description:

I finally drew more of Tiny Sapient Ungulates’s Spike… I didn’t make his proportions quite as exaggerated as my ponies, but whatever, my city my rules
 
Spike is a chubby pseudo-tyrannosaurid with a dorsal ridge of keratinous spines comparable to an iguana’s. He is extremely stunted for his age, being basically the same size he was as an infant, because his pony caretakers aren’t… really feeding him a proper diet… ideally Spike would eat mostly meat, but the only animal products he has access to in pony society are eggs and diary. He also gets fed way too many “gems,” the magic-dense semiorganic structures that grow like plentiful tubers in the charged soil of Equestria’s magic climate bubble. Dragons flock to Equestria to forage for these rare dietary supplements, but they’re no replacement for the proper nutrition meat would provide Spike. It’s a classic tale of exotic pet ownership, except the pet is like, also a sapient lizard child

Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.
If Spike was getting proper nutrition he would be about two and a half times his current size? Something like five inches taller than Twilight as she stands here? Four or five inches longer in both tail and muzzle?
Or I’m so far off it’s laughable.

I could totally believe that Spike would be smaller than average due to lack of a proper diet :(

@I Was Never Here  
Spike would most likely look like a tyrannosaurid; very heavy set and bulky like his Spikezilla form.
 
A flying dragon, however, would have a more sinuy, flexible body and lighter bone structure, closer to that of an arboreal bird as opposed to a land based theropod.

That’s gotta be heavy sarcasm on Spike’s behalf.
 
Season 1 Winter wrapup, Spike to Twilight: “YOU’RE not mommy…”
 
That aside, this is adorable and a perfectly logical explanation for his lack of proper growth.
