Monolophosaurus was a carnosaurian dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic about 170 milion years ago.

Monolophosaurus lived in what is now Xinjiang, China. It was named for the single crest on top of its skull. This dinosaur was 5 metres long!

Walking with dinosaurs. Plateosaurus lived about 222-219 million years ago, during the late Triassic period. This dinosaurus was long neck dinosaur.

Plateosaurus was the first of the giant dinosaur herbivores, 8 metres long and 3 metres high. Plateosaurus weighed about 700 kg!

Cryolophosaurus is the first meat-eating dinosaur to be discovered on the frozen continent of Antarctica. It was an odd looking dinosaur, fairly large for such an early hunter. It had a bizarre crest running across its head, just over the eyes, where it rises up, perpendicular to the skull, and fans out. Walking with dinosaurs.

The Dinosaurs - Dinosaur Photos - Syntarsus (megapnosaurus) - Walking with dinosaurs.

Syntarsus was a small, lightly-built dinosaur that walked on two long legs. This predator was about 3m long and weighed about 30kg. Syntarsus was a carnivore dinosaur.

It had light, hollow bones, a long, pointed head with dozens of small, serrated teeth, and a long neck.

Syntarsus (megapnosaurus) had large, four-fingered hands with sharp claws. Syntarsus had four-toed feet with fused ankle bones (these ankle bones were like those of early ornithopods although it was an early saurischian dinosaur - these ankle bones were what Syntarsus was named for).

Pisanosaurus was a small, lightly-built dinosaur approximately 1 m in length and 30 cm in height. Its weight was between 2.27–9.1 kg. Walking with dinosaurs.

These estimates vary due to the incompleteness of the fossil. The tail of Pisanosaurus has been reconstructed as being as long as the rest of the body, based on other early ornithischians, but as a tail has not been recovered, this is speculative. It was bipedal and, like all other known ornithischians, was probably herbivorous.

Coelophysis was a dinosaur, a group of extinct reptiles of the Mesozoic Era. Dinosaurs are readily distinguished from other reptiles by their upright limb postures in which the limbs are beneath (or nearly beneath) the body, not sprawled out to the sides of the body. The hip joint of Coelophysis demonstrates that the hindlimb was held beneath the body when the dinosaur walked or ran.

Staurikosaurus is one of the earliest known dinosaurs. This ancient predator was discovered in what is now modern day Brazil.

Like other Theropods, Staurikosaurus had evolved to walk and run on its hind legs (bipedally).
This man size animal probably hunted smaller animals, as well as young animals, and possibly eggs.

Eoraptor was one of the world's earliest dinosaurs. It was a two-legged carnivore that lived between 230 and 225 million years ago, in what is now the northwestern region of Argentina.

It had a thin body that grew to about 1 meter (3 ft) in length, with an estimated weight of about 10 kilograms. It ran digitigrade, upright on its hind legs. Its fore limbs were only half the length of its hind limbs and it had five digits on each 'hand'. Three of those digits, the longest of the five, ended in large claws and were presumably used to handle prey. Scientists have surmised that the fourth and fifth digits were too tiny to be of any use in hunting.
