In many ways, _Chilesaurus_ and therizinosaurs were both
'prosauropod'-mimics. Some of the features shared between
_Chilesaurus_ and basal sauropodomorphs are downright spooky - such as
the strongly twisted phalanx of the thumb.

_Eshanosaurus_ could be a whole new lineage of herbivorous
theropods... if so, it's probably a coelurosaurian lineage.
