is a genus of sauropodomorph
dinosaur that lived in South America
during the early Jurassic. Although no way near as large as the
of the late Jurassic, Bagualia was
still well on the road
to growing to large sizes, and much larger than the more primitive
sauropods and sauropodomorph dinosaurs of the late Triassic.
