Herrerasaurus facts 


According to some scientist this Triassic dinosaur from Argentina was one of the earliest theropods. According to others, it was not a dinosaur at all. The problem lies in its bones: only two of its vertebrae were attached to its hip bone-but dinosaurs had three vertebrae attached to their hip bones. so Herrerasaurus could not be a true theropod..
