DINO-A-DAY #64: Mussaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Mussaurus
PRONUNCIATION: moose-SAWR-us
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Triassic
DISCOVERED: Argentina, 1979
FUN FACT: Only juvenile fossils of Mussaurus have been found so far, so any attempts at describing an adult version are speculative at best.
