210 Ma is at the top of the Norian, according to Harland et al. 8-10 meters
tall is quite large for _Euskelosaurus_, unless some reporter mixed up its
"length" figures with "height" figures. BCF predicts large, sauropod-size
phytodinosaurs in the Triassic, so I'd like them to be the bigger size--and
if they had pentadactyl pedes, so much the better.
