An ancient dinosaur

A Queen of the Triassic

by Sean T Phelan

A large 'Alpha Female' Plateosaurid dinosaur,being attended to by a flock of small Pterosaurs who are busily feeding on the parasitic insects inhabiting her scaly hide,rises up on her hind legs and begins leading her unseen pack on another day of foraging through the fern covered flatlands and scraggly forests of central Europe on a foggy summer morning around 213 million years ago. Eventually,over the course of untold eons, these beasts will grow larger and heavier,revert to a full quadrepedal stance,and evolve into the truly gigantic Sauropodian dinosaurs ( like Apatosaurus and Brachiosaurus ) of later Jurassic times.
