Coelophysis was one of the first agile meat-eating dinosaurs. This relatively small theropod scurried around what is now New Mexico during the Triassic Period, at the dawn of the age of the dinosaurs, 200 million years ago.
Scientific Name:Coelophysis bauri
Characteristics:Coelophysis is a delicately built, two-legged carnivore with slender legs and three-toed feet. It had sharp, serrated teeth and was roughly 10 ft long, from head to tail.
Size and Color: This slender model is 7.25 inches long and 2.5 inches high. It is ginger with a lighter underside and dark streak along its flank. This would help it to blend into muddy habitats.
