New Discoveries from the Triassic

Dinosaurs first appeared in the Triassic Period (252–200 million years ago), but their early evolutionary history has long been mysterious. However, recent Triassic fossil discoveries are revealing new and surprising information about the origins of the Mesozoic Era’s most famous animals. Join Dr. Kammerer as he introduces some of the remarkable early members of the dinosaurian lineage, including some small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
