Scipionyx



dinosaur picture scipionyx


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  (unranked) Coelurosauria
  Genus Scipionyx
Scipionyx was a carnivore (meat-eater) dinosaur that lived in southern Italy during the Cretaceous period, about 113 million years. It is known from a single fossil juvenile animal that was found about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of what is today the city of Naples.

The fossil juvenile Scipionyx is just a few inches long, so there a number of uncertainties about the animal. These include its exact scientific classification, and how big adults are - although they have been estimated to have probably been about 6 feet (1.8 meters) long. The fossil of Scipionyx is however very important, because it is one of very few fossils that contains preserved internal organs (it is believed that these were preserved because the animal died fell into and died in an oxygen-poor lagoon). These internal organs include muscles, liver, intestines and parts of the animal's windpipe.

Scipionyx Facts

 
Here is a summary of some of the key facts about Scipionyx:
  1. Scipionyx was a genus of dinosaur.

  2. "Scipionyx" means "Scipio's claw". It is named after Scipione Breislak, the Italian geologist who write the first description of the formation where the fossil was subsequently found.

  3. Scipionyx was a member of the Saurischia ("lizard-hipped") order of dinosaurs. What this means, is that although Scipionyx was not closely related to lizards, it did have similarly shaped pelvic bones.

  4. Scipionyx was a Theropod - a member of a group of related bipedal dinosaurs that included the ancestors of birds (although Scipionyx was not itself an ancestor of birds).

  5. Scipionyx lived about 113 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period.

  6. Scipionyx lived in southern Italy.

  7. Scipionyx was a carnivore (meat-eater).

  8. Scipionyx is currently known only from a single fossil juvenile specimen which is just inches long. Adults are estimated to have probably been about 6 feet (1.8 meters) long.

  9. Scipionyx weighed about 110 pounds (50 kilograms).
