Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in North America

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.
