About this product
- DescriptionDawn of the Disaur Age presents the first act in the drama that would become the Mesozoic Era, the Age of Reptiles. The rise of the first disaurs is the story of opportunity and evolutionary invation. The first disaurs, after living in the shadows of larger, more dominant reptilian kin, took advantage of major mass extinctions at the end of the Triassic Period to take over niches once occupied by their predecessors. In the course of doing so, disaurs quickly radiated to widespread geographic ranges and began an evolutionary course that led to the development of two major groups of disaurs, the Saurischia and Ornithischia.The Late Triassic and Early Jurassic Periods were a time of experimentation in disaur evolution as the earliest herbivorous and predaceous disaurs adapted increasingly specialized body forms and lifestyles. Dawn of the Disaur Age explores the roots of the disaur family tree and the lifestyle and radiation of the first carnivorous and herbivorous disaurs.
