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...
