Name Means: "Case Lizard"
Time: Late Triassic - 225 mya
Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in North
This small meat-eater would have been one of the very first dinosaurs to
live in North America. It is very similar to
Herrerasaurus the early dinosaur found in South America. Very
little of this dinosaur was discovered so almost nothing is known of this
creature. It would have been very similar looking to all the other early
dinosaurs: small, with a long, flexible neck, long arms, a swift runner and
a mouthful of sharp teeth.
All of the earliest dinosaurs, regardless of their diet, shared a very
similar body style and size. The fragmentary remains don?t provide much
information about this animal other than age and its similarity to
Herrerasaurus The important thing is that it lived in North
America at the beginning of the dinosaur age.
