Coelurus



dinosaur picture coelurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  (unranked) Coelurosauria
  Family Coeluridae
  Genus Coelurus
Coelurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) dinosaur that lived in North America in the late Jurassic period, between about 153 and 150 million years ago.

Coelurus was quite small for a Theropod dinosaur. It was about 8 feet (2.4 meters) long, about 2¼ feet (0.7 meters) tall at the hips, and weighed something in the region of 29 to 44 pounds (13 to 20 kilograms).

The first discovery of the remains of Coelurus was in 1881 by an amateur fossil collector named David Baldwin. The name Coelurus was coined by Edward D. Cope in 1889, and means "hollow form", in reference to the animal's hollow bones.

Coelurus is belived to have been a small terrestrial carnivore (meat-eater). It would have ffet on small prey some small mammals, lizards and insects. It was also probably a fast animal - evidence for this comes, for instance, from the structure of the bones in its feet.
