Re: Brazilian scientists claim oldest dino findings
Well, this is an interesting find. 228 mya... Is that really older than
Saturnalia and Eoraptor?
The impression I get from the bones is that this thing is some sort of basal
saurischian, or possibly an extremely basal sauropodomorph (fairly hefty
body, longish neck, but skull, arms, and pelvis look more theropod-like)
Anyhow, it's nice to see another early dino; too bad we can't seem to find
many ornithischians from that timeframe though...
