Dear All,
      Exciting news!!!  A new dinosaur (Silesaurus opolensis) from the
Triassic of Poland is said to be the oldest known dinosaur.  Should cause
quite a stir in the dinosaur world.
      The artist's rendition shows it as being quadrupedal (but it doesn't
look like an obligate quadruped).  You could perhaps imagine it running up
(and clambering around in) trees, almost like a monkey.  It can be seen
