Biomechanical comments about Triassic dinosaurs from Brazil

Abstract: Triassic dinosaurs of Brazil are found in Santa Maria and Caturrita formations, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. There are three species known from the Santa Maria Formation (Staurikosaurus pricei, Saturnalia tupiniquim and Pampadromaeus barberenai), and two from Caturrita Formation (Guaibasaurus candelariensis and Unaysaurus tolentinoi). These dinosaur materials are, for the most part, well preserved and allow for descriptions of musculature and biomechanical studies. The lateral rotation of the Saturnalia fe… Show more

“…[16]). Additionally, this assumption is biomechanically consistent with the transformation of the supra-acetabular crest's extent in lateral view, from the rostro-dorsal acetabular margin in early dinosaurs to more dorsal acetabular margin in early coelurosaurs [49,50].…”
