Coelophysis
Facts

Coelophysis is one of the world's first known dinosaurs. It REALLY liked meat and scientists think it may even have eaten its own babies! If I was a Coelophysis baby, I think I'd run away!

They've found a lot of Coelophysis fossils in a place called Ghost Ranch in Arizona. They think there may be even 1000 more ready to be dug up!

Let's go!
