Pink Dinosaur #29

Pink Coelophysis by David Tana

05 - Coelophysis bauri - a very well known coelophysoid from the Late Triassic - Early Jurassic (~216.5 - 203.6 mya).  Once thought to be a confirmed cannibal, it is now only hypothesized that Coelophysis probably ate whatever it could get it's jaws around given the harsh environment it inhabited.  Skull reference for restoration from the infamous NHM2 mount/block.
