Today is a great day. Because they recently made a pretty nice discovery. Namely the oldest dinosaur ever found. The so called Nyasasaurus parringtoni.
Nyasasaurus walked the Earth about 10 million years before the current oldest dinosaur record holders — such as swift-footed Eoraptor and Herrerasaurus — suggesting that dinosaurs emerged in the Middle Triassic rather than in the latter years of that period. It also suggests that dinosaurs began as relatively small before some species grew to larger sizes.
We might even honor that dinosaur some day in the future. Not telling you yet how. 😉
Have a nice week and thanks for all the comments we have been getting lately! It’s always fun to see we have some returning commenters.
