Elaphrosaurus was a fast, bipedal dinosaur that lived during the Late Jurassic period.

Elaphroaurus was long and slender, with a long neck. What is known about Elaphrosaurus mostly comes from a single nearly complete skeleton found without a skull. It was distinctive among theropods for being short-legged for its length.
