Re: Siberian dinosaurs?
<<what, no Dyncodonts? (hey, isn't there a Cretaceous one?) :D>>
Dicynodonts aren't dinosaurs, Anthony, they're therapsids. Isolated
Cretaceous bits of skull were reported from Australia. I would mention the
description, but I've forgotten it.
Antactica has yielded at least one dicyonodont genus (I think there's more
than one, but I can't quite remember). /Lystrosaurus/ has been found hiding
in the lowermost Lower Triassic of the Fremouw Formation, and that horizon
is termed the /Lystrosaurus/ Zone. As in South Africa, it enjoyed the
company of /Thrinaxodon/, a roughly fox-sized cynodont, which probably
enjoyed eating its children.
