Re: Herrerasaurus - what was it?



Well, it certainly looks like a theropod, at least as much as an ichthyosaur 
looks like a dolphin.

I'd guess the factions are whether theropods and sauropods split before or 
after Herrerasaurus.
If they split after, that means that the last common ancestor of sauropods & 
theropods was very theropod like.
