Proceratosaurus bradleyi Information:

Proceratosaurus bradleyi is a small theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Jurassic period, approximately 167 million years ago. It belongs to the family Proceratosauridae, which is a group of early, relatively small carnivorous dinosaurs. The name "Proceratosaurus" means "before Ceratosaurus," as it was named before the discovery of similar but larger ceratosaurid dinosaurs.

Proceratosaurus was a small dinosaur, estimated to have reached lengths of about 9 to 13 feet (2.7 to 4 meters) and stood around 3 to 4 feet (1 to 1.2 meters) tall at the hips. It weighed approximately 100 to 200 pounds.

This dinosaur is characterized by a number of unique physical features. One of the most distinctive features is a small nasal horn or crest on the front of its snout. This horn is one of the reasons for its name, as "Procerato" means "before horn." However, the horn of Proceratosaurus is much smaller than those found in later ceratosaurs like Ceratosaurus.

Proceratosaurus was a carnivorous dinosaur, and its diet likely consisted of small vertebrates such as reptiles and early mammals. It would have used its sharp teeth to capture and consume its prey.

Proceratosaurus is classified within the theropod subgroup of theropoda, which includes other well-known dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor. It is specifically placed within the family Proceratosauridae, and its exact position within the dinosaur family tree has been the subject of some debate among paleontologists.

ossils of Proceratosaurus bradleyi were first discovered in England, particularly in the Oxford Clay Formation, which dates back to the Late Jurassic period. The initial discovery was made in the 1910s.

Proceratosaurus is considered an early relative of ceratosaurid dinosaurs, which includes larger predators like Ceratosaurus and Carnotaurus. It is also related to other theropods like Dilophosaurus.

While there is limited information available about the behavior of Proceratosaurus, it is believed to have been a bipedal predator that lived in a variety of terrestrial environments, possibly including forested areas and open landscapes.
