About Saltopus

Saltopus is believed to have been one of the smallest meat-eating dinosaurs of all time. Saltopus was a Theropod, a dinosaur who eats other animals, and who runs on hind legs. Saltopus had five digits on its front legs. As the dinosaur age wore on, Theropods slowly lost digits, until they had only two. Saltopus moved about quickly, chasing insects and other small creatures.
