Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in India

Alwalkeria was a small meat-eater and among the first dinosaurs on the Earth. Discovered in India, it may have been one of the first dinosaurs to live in that part of the world. These little hunters competed with other creatures, such as the mammal-like reptiles, for food. It would be many millions of years after this little dinosaur lived before dinosaurs ruled the Earth.

Known only from a few bones, it is believed that this specimen was a juvenile. It seems to be a standard form for the basal dinosaurs.
