Panphagia was a sauropodomoprh from the Ischigualasto Formation of Valle Pintado, Ischigualasto Provincial Park, San Juan Province, Argentina. It lived about 231.4 million years ago in the early Carnian age of the Late triassic. It is known from a partial skull and post cranial remains. It is known from a partially grown individual as well; the original skeleton was about 1.3 meters long, but fully grown adults would have been longer. It is one of the earliest known dinosaurs, and it may represent a transitional stage in the sauropodomorphs from a carnivorous diet to an herbivorous one. The teeth indicate that this animal may have been omnivorous, and had the beginnings of the leaf-shaped and serrated teeth used by sauropodmoprhs to procure plant matter.
