Coelophysis is often considered to be one of the first true dinosaurs, coming from the Triassic Period. The Coelophysis is typically found anywhere that is warm. These creatures are found in the Region of Chuult and the southern zones of Arkamata. The diet of a Coelophysis consists of insects, lizards, Compys, and Small Pterosaurs. However, these creatures will sometimes call upon their Clique to swarm a larger animal, such as humanoids or small Ornithopods. A single Coelo will make up to 40 kills in a day, and it will bring these small kills back to a safe house, the den of the Clique. Inside, they stockpile carcasses for their young, and to draw in insects to eat, allowing a clique to hunt for one day and be able to survive for up to 6 weeks. Explorers have said that Coelos are venomous, secreting a type of toxin that targets a subject's bones, slowly eating away at skeletal tissue until the target collapses and succumbs to the elements or the jaws of the Clique.
