"A group of subadult individuals of Thecodontosaurus relaxes on the beach in the morning light. The arrival of a swarm of Triassic dragonflies creates confusion among individuals, some seizing the opportunity to have a snack, they being omnivorous."
In the scene it is apparent that Thecodontosaurus adopted both bipedal and quadrupedal posture. The head on the foreground, showing the peculiar shape of the serrated tooth crowns, and the presence of many individuals on different levels, give me a chance to show the depth of the framing and some different attitudes of the subadult Thecodontosaurus.
Many thanks to my friend Simone Maganuco (palaeontologist) for his useful advices.
