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
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
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.
