Podokesaurus(meaning''Swift footed lizard'') is a Coelophysoid from early Jurassic eastern USA.

It was a small carnivorous dinosaur and one of the earliest dinosaurs to inhabit the US. It may be the same species as Coelophysis.

Description Edit

Podokesaurus generally grew to about 3 feet in length, but evidence shows that it may have grown to be about 9 feet. It was very similar to the Coelophysis in terms of anatomy.
