Silesaurus opoliensis
Silesaurus opoliensis, primitive dinosaur, although its exact classification has been the subject of debate in the scientific community. This dinosaur lived during the Triassic period, approximately 230 million years ago, in what is now Poland. Although it is called a dinosaur, some experts argue that Silesaurus opolensis is more of an early relative of dinosaurs than a true dinosaur.

This reptile had an unusual appearance compared to the better-known dinosaurs. It was about 1 meter long and had a long and slender body shape. It had characteristics that relate it both to archosaurs, a group that includes dinosaurs and crocodiles, and to anapsid reptiles, an older group. This mix of characteristics has led to some controversies in its classification and has sparked debates about whether it should really be considered a dinosaur.

Silesaurus opolensis is characterized by its herbivorous diet. It had teeth suitable for chewing plants and probably fed on ferns and other vegetation available in its environment. Although its size was modest compared to many dinosaurs, its herbivorous diet and its presence in the Triassic period make it an important example of the diversity of prehistoric life at that time.

Regarding its lifestyle, Silesaurus opoliensis is believed to have been quadrupedal and probably spent most of its time on land, although it may have had the ability to move nimbly.

Approximate measurements of the Silesaurus:
  • Scale 1:15 - 155 mm
