He had a long slender neck. Coelophysis was a double-hinged jaw so that prey can cut with a sawing action, if necessary. Its jaws were many small, sharp teeth, indicating that it was a carnivore. She even ate Coelophsis others. It was built for speed.

In 1947, hundreds of Coelophysis skeletons were found buried together in New Mexico. Paleontologists believe they likely died in a flash flood.Plateosaurus (say PLAT-ee-oh-SAW-rus)
