DINO-A-DAY #65: Plateosaurus

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: Plateosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: PLAY-tee-uh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Triassic
DISCOVERED: 1834, Nuremberg, Germany
FUN FACT: Plateosaurus was the first dinosaur discovered in Norway. Why the species was not immediately renamed Nansenosaurus remains a mystery.
