PANPHAGIA PROTOS
"The First Eater of All"
Martínez & Alcober, 2009
Length: 1.5m (5ft)
Weight: 22kg (50 lb)
Location: San Juan Province, Argentina
Era: Ladinian age, mid Triassic (231 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Sauropodomorpha
Guaibasauridae

Notes:
Panphagia is the most basal definite Sauropodomorph on record (though Eoraptor may yet prove to be an even more basal form), and is so named to reference that it is a transitional form from a truly carnivorous animal to an herbivorous one.

One of my favourite dinosaurs. I love primitive dinos.

I think that all the members of Guaibasauridae may have been omnivores...How many basal Sauropodomorphs have been discovered so far? How should we classify the mysterious Agnosphitys?
