Dinosaurs evolved within a single lineage of archosaurs 232-234 million years ago in the Ladinian age, the latter part of the middle Triassic. Dinosauria is a wellsupported clade, present in 98% of bootstraps. It is diagnosed by many features including loss of the postfrontal on the skull and an elongate deltopectoral crest on the humerus.

In March 2017, scientists reported a new way of classifying the dinosaur family tree, based on newer and more evidence than available earlier. According to the new classification, the original dinosaurs, arising 200 million years ago, were small, two-footed omnivorous animals with large grasping hands. Descendants (for the non-avian dinosaurs) lasted until 66 million years ago.

Not to switch topics. I'd like to hear what other people think about the dinosaurs but I watched something on netflix once that said life on other planets would be so much different. Where plants are actually carnivores and the plants would eat meat. Interesting thought.

interesting indeed, there are carnivorous plants here on earth but i get what you mean. It would be rather strange to see something like a plant straight outta mario. Such a plant that instead of waiting for its food it would rather hunt for its food, scary to be honest. i think that if it were on earth and was the norm then i wouldn't be such a big deal, like "[dad voice]Oh hey watch out i think i saw a sunflower over there. Be careful those guys can eat your face off."
