Huge slab of very distinct footprints
Three toed prints from this small carnivore
Artists impression of Coelophysis
An extremely rare, and unusually large plate of very distinct footprints from the small theropod dinosaur, Coelophysis (also known as Rioarribasaurus), from the order Saurischia.
Coelophysis translates from the latin as "Hollow Form", and it was a small bipedal carniverous dinosaur dating from the Late Triassic, 220 million years ago.
This exceptionally large plate was discovered on the Yorkshire Coast, England, which is a very unusual location, as most Coelyphisis remains are found in New Mexico, USA.
They inhabited river valleys and scrubland around the plains, hunting alone or in small groups.
At the end of the dry season Coelophysis would form large groups to hunt prey.
They averaged 1.2 metres (4 feet) tall and 2.7 metres (9 feet) in length.
This is a museum quality specimen, and we have never seen another offered of this quality.
It is also from a very exceptional location, having been discovered in the UK.
THIS IS VERY RARE - DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
We can frame this if you wish for wall hanging.
Slab size: 61 cms x 44cms (24 inches x 17 inches)
