Triassic Age 210-205 Million Years Old.
Coelophysis is a type of fossilized trace fossil that is commonly found in sedimentary rocks. It is named after the extinct animal Coelophysis, which was a small, carnivorous dinosaur that lived during the Late Triassic period, around 210-205 million years ago. The footprint is characterized by a distinctive shape, with three toes and a long, narrow tail.
The coelophysis footprint is typically found in sandstone and shale formations, and it provides valuable information about the behavior and ecology of the animal that made it. The footprint is usually about 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) long and 3-5 cm (1-2 inches) wide, and it is often found in association with other trace fossils, such as burrows and tracks made by other animals.
The coelophysis footprint is an important tool for paleontologists, as it helps to shed light on the evolution and diversity of early dinosaurs. For example, the presence of coelophysis footprints in a particular geological formation can indicate that the environment was suitable for the survival of small, carnivorous dinosaurs like Coelophysis. Additionally, the study of coelophysis footprints can provide insights into the behavior and ecology of these animals, such as their diet, locomotion, and social interactions.
