Staurikosaurus is a genus of early Dinosaur from the Mid-Late Triassic period. It was a small carnivorous theropod, only 2 metres long. It lived in South America, hence its name, which means "lizard of the Southern Cross" (referring to a constellation seen only in the Southern Hemisphere). Staurikosaurus is one of the oldest dinosaurs that has been discovered.
