Latest Diplodocus Stories
Remember when you learned about Brontosaurus as a kid? And then some egg-head scientists had to go and start calling it ‘Apatosaurus’? Childhood ruined. Well, just like TMNT and GI Joe, Brontosaurus is back baby!
Sauropod dinosaurs, like Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus, were the largest land animals to ever walk the Earth, and many of these massive creatures lived alongside each other in close proximity.
The massive skeleton of a Diplodocus longus named “Misty,” which was discovered near the fossil hotbed Dana Quarry in Wyoming, will be auctioned off next month.
Colossal, skyscraping sauropod dinosaurs required massive amounts of plant food to maintain their enormous weight, meaning a lot of wear and tear on their teeth. But without a decent dental plan, how did these giants maintain healthy chompers?
A team of researchers report they have discovered the eating habits of the Jurassic age dinosaur, the Diplodocus.
A team of international researchers, led by the University of Bristol and the Natural History Museum, used CT scans and biomechanical modeling to show that Diplodocus had a skull adapted to strip leaves from tree branches.
Scientists of the Egidio Feruglio Museum revealed a new type of dinosaur that was discovered in the North Central Province of Chubut â€“ the Leonerasaurus Taquetransis.
Researchers retrieved bones from two incomplete skeletons of an adult and juvenile dinosaur from a previously looted quarry in Utah.
The skull of a juvenile sauropod dinosaur, rediscovered in the collections of Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Natural History, illustrates that some sauropod species went through drastic changes in skull shape during normal growth.
A new technique might help locate looters who stole from Utah's collection of dinosaur bones.
Supersaurus, meaning “super lizard” is a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaur that was discovered by Vivian Jones of Delta, Colorado, in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation of Colorado in the year 1972. The fossil remains came from the Brushy Basin Member of the formation, dating back to about 153 million years ago. It’s among the largest dinosaurs known from good remains, possibly reaching 108 to 112 feet long and around 35 to 40 tons. In most respects, Supersaurus is much like...
Diplodocus, meaning “double beam,” is a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Period of what is now western North America (about 150 million years ago). The first fossils of this dinosaur were discovered in 1877 by S.W. Williston. Its generic name was coined by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1878. Diplodocus is one of the more common dinosaur fossils found in the Upper Morrison Formation, a sequence of shallow marine and alluvial sediments deposited about 150 million...
Ceratosaurus, meaning "horn lizard", is a genus of large predatory dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Period (Tithonian and Kimmeridgian ages). It is found in the Morrison Formation of North America, Tanzania and Portugal. It was discovered in the Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry in central Utah and the Dry Mesa Quarry in Colorado. The type species, C. nasicornis, was described by O.C. Marsh in 1884 and then red scribed by Gilmore in 1920. Two more species, C. magnicornis and C. dentisulcatus,...
