Compsognathus, skeleton

This replica of Compsognathus is one of the most famous fossils in paleontology. At one time it was considered the smallest dinosaur at about the size of a chicken.

Compsognathus was a bird-like dinosaur that walked on two long, thin legs; it had three-toed feet. A long tail acted as a counterbalance and for stability during fast turns. It had short arms with two clawed fingers on each hand. Compsognathus had a small, pointed head with small, sharp teeth, hollow bones, and a long, flexible neck.

Compsognathus was from 28 inches-4.6 feet long and weighed about 6.5 pounds. Its femur (thigh bone) was only 4. 3 inches long.
