Megapnosaurus aka. Syntarsus



An early Jurassic Coelophysid dinosaur found in South Africa and North America. It was originally called Syntarsus, but this name was already taken for a beetle.

I took the background photo at Rooi-Els, in South Africa. While we were there, I saw a cormorant sunning itself on a rock - that, and how prehistoric it looked with all the jagged rocks and animal prints in the sand inspired this.

Great image. I was looking at the model of one of these in the Iziko museum a few weeks ago. Nice size for a pet!
