Procompsognathus

About Procompsognathus

Procompsognathus lived about 220 million years ago in the ancient deserts of the Late Triassic. This small hunter used its quick, agile body to chase insects and other small creatures such as grubs. Procompsognathus had a long, stiff tail that it used to balance itself as it moved about. The fossil record indicates that Procompsognathus' tail was probably too stiff to swish back and forth.
