Coelophysis

Early meat-eating dinosaurs like Coelophysis relied on their speed and agility to catch a variety of animals like insects and small reptiles. The sharp teeth and grasping claws of Coelophysis would have helped them to hold and kill their food.

Tapejara

The creature also makes effective use of razor-sharp claws to latch onto surfaces such as the trunks of tall trees, holding its position indefinitely. Warlike tribes appear to consider Tapejara the equivalent of a versatile rotor aircraft, capable of rapid positional changes and aggressive agility.

Dilophosaurus

It had a pair of longitudinal, plate-shaped crests on its skull, similar to a cassowary with two crests. The function of the crests is unknown; they were too weak for battle, but may have been used in visual display, such as species recognition and sexual selection.

Allosaurus

The skull had a pair of horns above and in front of the eyes. The horns were probably covered in a keratin sheath and may have had a variety of functions, including acting as sunshades for the eye, being used for display, and being used in combat against other members of the same species.
