Limusaurus inextricabilis by EmperorDinobot Limusaurus inextricabilis by EmperorDinobot
Limusaurus is the weirdest, and one of the earliest ceratosaurs ever. It shares many features with coelophysioids and ceratosaurs, but it is also a herbivorous dinosaur and it lived in Asia, which is ceratosaur free country...for the most part.

cool, do you think that deltadromeus and limusaurus are close relatives ??I doubt it as limnusaurus lived in the jurassic whiel delta lived in the cretaceous. I think limusaurus is a basal noasaurid.

Limusaurus is more basal than ANY noasaurid. Noasaurids live in the cretaceous, and Deltadromeus has a lot of noasaurid features.
Limusaurus is described as being a basal ceratosaur with very extreme and unique features. He's kind of his own thing. If it were up to me I'd put it in its own clade. Limusauridae or something.

yeah, limusauridae would be good, i think elaphrosaurus, spinostropheus and of course limusaurus fit that group.

No no just Limusaurus should be in that group.

Nice stripes...

Are there really those spiky bits (I want to say scutes, but that's the wrong word) along the spine? I know Ceratosaurus has something like that...

Artistic license. Besides, a lot of ceratosaurs (the really really really ridiculously good looking ones) seem to have had spiky bits, y'know, sharp big scales running down their backs like Carnotaurus and Aucasaurus...I think Aucasaurus showed them on some preserved skin. I'm not sure. So why not Limusaurus?

Okay, just wondering.
