Description

Proceratosaurus is a small carnivore from the middle Jurassic period, one of the earliest tyrannosauroid dinosaurs. This dinosaur was mistakenly identified as an ancestor of Ceratosaurus, due to its distinctive nasal crest. This crest gave it its name, meaning "before Ceratosaurus". As only a fragment of the crest is intact on the one known specimen, it is possible the crest could have been much larger, relative to skull size, than the Ceratosaurus' horn.

Discovery

The first (and only) Proceratosaurus specimen, was discovered in Gloucestershire, England, by F Lewis Bradley in the early 1900s. This fossil is the only Proceratosaurus specimen discovered so far, and consists of a single, partially complete skull. The skull features a nasal crest which initially lead it to be thought an ancestor of Ceratosaurus (hence the name). Like many dinosaurs, modern advancements in fossil analysis have revealed the mistakes and mis-classifications of the past. In 2010 Proceratosaurus was re-classified a tyrannosauroid after CT scans revealed internal air spaces in the skull, a feature shared with dinosaurs in this group.

Paleoecology

Little is known about Proceratosaurus' natural environment, but it likely contained a mix of floodplain and woodland.
