|— Korrina on Silesaurus|
Fossilized remains of Silesaurus have been found in the Keuper Claystone in Krasiejów near Opole, Silesia, Poland, which is also the origin of its name. The type species, Silesaurus opolensis, was described by Jerzy Dzik in 2003. It is known from some 20 skeletons, making it one of the best-represented of the early dinosauriforms.
In the Series 2 premiere "Birth of a New Blood", a small number of seven Silesaurus were brought back from Poland 230 million years ago.
- Along with Plateosaurus, Coelophysis, Daemonosaurus, and Liliensternus, Silesaurus was among the first dinosaurs brought to the park.
- The sound effects of Silesaurus are mostly crocodile hisses as well as the sounds effects of a vulture, zebra, quail, and a peacock.
- In real-life, Silesaurus was most likely not a biped with the design of Coelophysis, and instead more of a quadruped.
