Herrerasaurus was a carnivore that lived during the Late Triassic Period some 228.7 million to 199.6 million years ago. Its fossils had been found in Argentina. It was one of the first dinosaurs to live, and was relatively advanced during its time. Herrerasaurus had characteristics of the later theropods, such as short forelimbs equipped with three recurved claws and sturdy hind legs for running.
It also had large teeth curved inward on the side of the lower jaw to hold prey. It was blade-shaped and had knife-like teeth that could turn you into meat.
It lived in a humid environment, where there were fern groves and tall conifers in a cool environment. It hunted small animals by means of ambushes.
The herrerasaurus was a carnivorous dinosaur, and chased rhinososaurs, Thecodont reptiles and other early dinosaurs for a meal.
