    Guest Post From Christine Dell'Amore, From National Geographic News

    A new dinosaur relative found in Tanzania is the oldest known creature of its kind--a discovery that pushes back the origin of dinosaurs by at least ten million years, paleontologists say. Dubbed Asilisaurus kongwe, the Labrador retriever-size creature was a silesaur, the closest relatives to true dinosaurs. The newfound animal lived 243 million years ago, during the middle Triassic period. Since silesaurs and true dinosaurs diverged from a common ancestor, the two groups should have existed during the same time frame.
