Bit of a shorter post this month, as I'm prepping a photo-heavy review of the Creative Beast raptor toys that I just received. This month I’ve decided to tackle one of my absolute
favorite groups of Triassic weirdos: shuvosaurids! They are a fairly obscure clade outside of paleo circles, consisting of only three (used to be four) named
genera but shuvosaurids should be poster children for the concept of convergent
evolution. These things are pseudosuchian theropod
mimics, and not just theropods but ornithomimosaurs.
Ostrich dinosaurs in the Triassic...but suchians!
