Euparkeria

About Euparkeria

The evolution of early dinosaurs is widely debated among scientists. Some believe that Euparkeria may have been an ancestor to some or all of the dinosaurs. Others believe that while Euparkeria was similar in many ways, it was not an ancestor of the dinosaurs. Euparkeria had longer hind legs, which it could use to run very quickly. About the size of a pet cat, Euparkeria was probably just as quick and agile when it hunted.
