The Herrerasaurus was one of the first prehistoric saurians to dominate the earth 220 million years ago. It was a dangerous hunter who moved on two legs and had sharp, serrated teeth.

The Herrerasaurus was somewhat small compared with the Giganotosaurus and Spinosaurus, who lived much later on. It was only three to four metres long. Its legs were very strong, and it could sprint about as fast as a 100-metre runner.

For a dinosaur, the Herrerasaurus had a rather unusual lower jaw, which it could slide back and forth by means of a flexible joint. This allowed it to better grasp its prey. The Herrerasaurus could also withdraw its claws on its forelegs like a bird.

Fun Fact: Named after the Argentinian goatherd Victorino Herrera, who chanced upon its skeleton in 1959.

  • Suitable for ages 3+ years
