Dinosaur, Anchisaurus

Dinosaur, Anchisaurus

A small creature pushes over the fern and begins to eat it. It has to be at least 8 feet in length but it stands only about 2 feet at the shoulder. It lifts its graceful neck and stares at you without a thought of aggression.

Anchisaurus was one of the first prosauropods. It looked like a dilutive version of its larger cousins but its neck is proportionately shorter. It can rear up on its back legs in order to reach higher vegetation. A bipedal herbivore that feeds upright from time to time, but spends most of its time on all fours. They are not aggressive, attacking only in defense and when fleeing is not possible.

Anchisaurus would rather run than fight, but if forced to, it will swing at its opponents with its long tail as would any other member of its race.
