Camarasuarus Slide Show Thinggggyyy

  1. 1. camarasaurus
  2. 2. • Camarasaurus was a giant sauropod dinosaur that may have roamed in herds (it seems to have been common) in North America during the late Jurassic period, between approximately 155 million and 145 million years ago. Like other sauropod dinosaurs, it was a herbivore.
  3. 3. • The first fossils of Camarasaurus were found in Colorado in 1877 by Oramel W. Lucas. Lucas then sold his fossils to Edward D. Cope, who named the animal (its name means "chambered lizard"
  4. 4. • Camarasaurus fossils have been found in groups with both adult and young together. This suggests that Camarasaurus travelled in herds and may have cared for their young. Camarasaurus may have hatched from eggs, like other sauropods. Sauropod eggs have been found in a linear pattern and not in nests; presumably the eggs were laid as the animal was walking. It is thought that sauropods did not take care of their eggs. Sauropods life spans may have been in the order of 100 years. •
  5. 5. • Camarasaurus had front and hind legs of equal length, making its back level with the ground. Camarasaurus'' bones were filled with chambers of air, which is where it gets its name.
