description. Two Metoposaurs bask on the bank of a late Triassic pond. Fossil evidence of Metoposaur mass graves indicate that these animals lived in large groups near bodies of water. It is also possible that these mass graves are the aftermath of severe droughts that forced the animals together collectively around increasingly shrinking amounts of water.
