Half a century ago spectacular specimens of prosauropod dinosaurs such as Lufengosaurus were discovered at the same location - which supports the theory that prosauropods gave rise to sauropods, despite the fact that the transition has been very vague, Chatterjee said.
There's also a dinosaur-related time line that shows the evolution of plant and animal life as long ago as 250 million years during the Triassic period, when the first dinosaurs began to appear in the form of herds of prosauropods.
Adults of the species, one of a group called prosauropods, measured about 5 meters long.
