|210 million old Coelophysis is New Mexico's state fossil.|
The paintings help you visualize the habitat hundreds of years ago. The gigantic horsetails, ferns and cycads surrounding this pond inhabited by crocodile-like phytosaur, Leptosuchus, that is chasing away a pack of light-footed early dinosaurs, Coelophysis, which were scavenging the carcass of the heavily armored aetosaur, Desmatosuchus.
|Several Postosuchus of the later Triassic are closing in|
on a rauisuchian, not a true dinosaur.
|This heavily armored herbivore is a Desmatosuchus. |
It roamed the area 230 million years ago.
|Hesperosuchus agilis above in an ancestral crocodile that lived on land. |
