Liliensternus liliensterni was a theropod that lived in Western Europe in the late Triassic. It was roughly six meters in length

Liliensternus was quite large for its time and would have hunted the larger prosauropods of the time. Recent information suggests it may have hunted in packs. This would make sense for taking down such large prey. Although it was one of the bigger predators of its time, it was lightly built. This means it could probably run quite fast.

Although Liliensternus had the same, slender agile build as Coelophysis, it was twice as long and much more powerful.
