Anchisaurus

About Anchisaurus

Anchisaurus was originally discovered in 1818, many decades before the dinosaurs were officially recognized. At that time, scientists believed that the skeleton was that of an early human. This dog-sized animal probably hopped along slowly, similar to a kangaroo, as it foraged around looking for plant life.
