DINO-A-DAY #26: Compsognathus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Compsognathus
PRONUNCIATION: komp-sog-NAY-thus
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Jurassic
DISCOVERED: Germany, 1861
FUN FACT: Compsognathus -- affectionately known as “compys” -- are featured in two of the Jurassic Park films, in which they are shown hunting in packs, despite the fact that there is no evidence for this behavior in the fossil record.
