The mammals' mammalian cousins, the size of an elephant planted with wicked vegetation, when European landscapes held their dinosaurs, at that time between 205 million and 210 million, scientists say.
Scientists have predicted an astonishing Polish discovery that fossils of fossil beasts named Lisowicia bojani demonstrated that the dinosaurs were not the only behemoth of the Earth at that time.
He also showed that the group of reptiles like mammals named Lisowicia had not been dying for some time.
"We believe that in Europe it is the discovery of unexpected fossils of the Triassic," said the paleontologist Grzegorz Niedzwiedzki of Uppsala University in Sweden.
Lisowicia, the most popular dinosaur animal of that time, was 4.5 meters long, 2.6 meters high and 9 tons high. At that time, other giants were the only four legs, long necks and long queues at the beginning of the dinosaur group called sauropods.
"Lisowicia's skulls and jaws were very specialized: teeth and mouth were clay beak, like turtles and dinosaurs," said Niedzwiedzkik, who did not make it clear that the dog had done it as his relatives.
Triassic was the opening chapter of the dinosaur age, during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The first dinosaurs appeared about 230 million years ago. Many of the first dinosaurs were of a small size, reflected by the great reptiles of the earth, including scary predators like Rauchisian and crocodile phytosaurs.
"The late Triassic era was not the height of the dinosaurs when it was competing with the last dicynodonts dinosaurs. In the end, the dinosaurs won this evolution competition," said the Polish Academy of Paleobiology, Tomasz Sulej, of the Polish Academy.
Dicynodonts blend reptilian and mammalian properties. Thousands of years earlier, in the early phase of mammals that had evolved at the end of the Triassic, these plant hunters had large size burrowers in large browsers. Earth's main soils were converted to the mid and late Triassic, but today, dinosaurs became the origin of terrestrial animals.
Scientists have found about 100 bones representing the Polish town of Lisowice, the people of lisowice.
A study of the body of the creature had a rapid growth rate of bones with mammals or dinosaurs.
The research was published in the Science Magazine.
