At a weight of over 51 tons and measuring more than 18m in length, the Camarasaurus is one of the largest sauropods and is easily recognized thanks to its distinctive blunt nose. Camarasaurus is a herbivorous sauropod and is related to more well-known dinosaurs including Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus. In fact, Camarasaurus is a more commonly found genus than its more famous relatives.
Camarasaurus was discovered in Colorado in 1877 by Oramel W. Lucas, although the bones he found were purchased by Edward Drinker Cope soon after. A near-complete skeleton was unearthed in 1925 by Charles W. Gilmore, and the finding led paleontologists of the time to believe Camarasaurus was much smaller than initially assumed – however further research showed that the skeleton was from a juvenile.
Camarasaurus lived around 140-150 million years ago, during the Late Jurassic period. The genus lived in herds and preferred dry environments – most notably the vast western plains of the United States, from Wyoming in the north to New Mexico in the south.
