Physical appearance and biologyEdit
Euparkeria was a small reptile. It had a slender body with a long tail. It had four splayed-out legs. It was also lightweight. It had jaws lined with needle-sharp teeth designed for penetrating insect carapaces.
Euparkeria was mostly green with patches of white, yellow and black and had shades of red and blue around its eyes.
Behaviour and traitsEdit
Euparkeria was a small insectivore. Its jaws were lined with sharp teeth perfectly designed for slicing through the carapace of an insect with ease. Its main source of prey were dragonflies.What set it apart from other animals which lived in its environment was that its hips were designed for quadrupedal and bipedal modes of mobility. It walked in a quadrupedal style when walking but when it needed to accelerate, it would quickly change to a bipedal stance. This way of travel was extremely efficient, particularly when it came to hunting and evading danger.
Using its agility, Euparkeria could hunt from dangerous places. For example, it would hunt insects resting in the jaws of a Proterosuchus without being killed itself. Even if the chasmatosaur attempted to chase the Euparkeria, the Euparkeria could easily escape due to its speed and agility.
On a river bank, a Euparkeria approached a dragonfly which was resting on the lower jaw of a Proterosuchus. As the insect flew away, the chasmatosaur snapped its jaws at the Euparkeria and chased it away.
