Description

Apatosaurus is a large sauropod with a long neck and corresponding tail for balance. Its name means 'deceptive lizard'. Like others in its family, the Apatosaurus's head is small in comparison with its body.

Discovery

Apatosaurus was named from a nearly complete skeleton extracted from the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado in 1877. So far, two species of Apatosaurus have been identified. The first from the original find, and the second from a later find in Utah.

Paleoecology

So far Apatosaurus finds have been in the Morrison Formation, which has revealed an abundance of large sauropods, of which Apatosaurus is the second most common of the era.
