The meat-eating Coelophysis lived during the Triassic period about 200 million years ago and is one of the first known dinosaurs. Coelophysis prowled southwestern North America and hunted in packs. It was discovered by the paleontologist Edward Cope and is the state dinosaur of New Mexico. The discovery of Archaeopteryx fossils with detailed feather impressions helped to cement the relationship between dinosaurs and birds. This small bird-like dinosaur lived about 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period. Archaeopteryx diet was mostly small reptiles, plants, and insects. Diplodocus could whip its long tail at supersonic speeds. This may have been used for defense, communication, or courtship. This plant-eating, massive dinosaur was one of the longest ever from head to tail at up to 90 feet. Its neck was about 20 feet long and its tail was even longer than that. Like modern giraffes, Brachiosaurus’ long neck helped it to reach food sources that were too high for other dinosaurs. Not quite as large as the Diplodocus, the Brachiosaurus thrived during the Jurassic period over 150 million years ago. This dinosaur fed mainly on coniferous trees and dry plants. Elasmosaurus was a marine reptile that used its long neck to stalk schools of fish during the late Cretaceous period. This creature was over 50 feet long and could weigh as much as three tons. Similar to other marine reptiles, the Elasmosaurus needed to surface for air because it did not have gills.
Mosasaurus was a marine reptile from the Cretaceous period. Like modern whales, its legs were modified into flippers that helped it swim. This air-breathing reptile lived during the Cretaceous period about 75 million years ago and could grow up to 50 feet long and weighed up to 15 tons. Dimetrodon was a mammal-like reptile that lived 40 million years before the dinosaurs. It may have used its sail to regulate its body temperature. Dimetrodon was a meat-eating dinosaur that lived about 275 million years ago during the Permian period. Its fossils have been discovered all over the world. Velociraptor’s name means “swift seizer.” It is one of the best-known dinosaurs, with more fossil specimens than any of its relatives. This dinosaur roamed the Earth about 75 million years ago during the end of the Cretaceous period. It was prominently featured in the Jurassic Park movies. Pterodactyl is a winged, flying reptile that exists alongside the dinosaurs. It preyed on fish and other small animals. Pterodactyl’s first appeared during the late Jurassic period over 80 million years ago and despite being a bird it did not have feathers. Its wingspan was approximately 3.5 to 4 feet. Parasaurolophus’ large, hollow crest may have helped it to communicate through loud, low frequency sounds. This unique dinosaur was a herbivore and was about 40 feet long and weighed up to 4000 pounds. It lived during the Cretaceous period over 70 million years ago and inhabited North America.
