Coelophysis was a small, early, meat-eating dinosaur. Coelophysis was a theropod dinosaur that lived during the late Triassic period; it was one of the earliest-known dinosaurs. This predator probably lived and hunted in packs; this is suggested by the existence of fossil bonebeds of hundreds of Coelophysis (collections of many fossils at one location) found at the Ghost Ranch in New Mexico, USA.
A Coelophysis skull was brought into space by the space shuttle Endeavor on January 22, 1998. It traveled to the space station MIR.
Coelophysis was a small, lightly-built dinosaur that walked on two long legs. It was about 9 feet long (2.8 m). It had light, hollow bones (hence its name), a long, pointed head with dozens of small, serrated teeth, three clawed fingers on its hands, and a long neck.
Coelophysis was discovered in 1881 by David Baldwin. It was named by US paleontologist Edward Drinker Cope in 1889. Thousands of Coelophysis fossils, including bonebeds, have been found at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, and USA. Several hundred Coelophysis fossil skeletons have been found in Arizona, New Mexico, and perhaps Utah. Adults and juveniles have been found.
