Megapnosaurus was a small theropod with a slender body, a long tail, long arms with three fingers on each hand, a moderately long neck, a long, conical head with large jaws, and two small crests atop its head. Most of its body would have been covered in short, fuzz-like feathers.
Megapnosaurus was a predator, preying on small crocodylomorphs, small cynodonts, pterosaurs, fish, and smaller theropods. Its teeth had knife-like serrations from front to back, and were used to cut into the hides of large prey.
So far, all we know about Megapnosaurus is that it might have hunted in packs a la Coelophysis.
