Wonderful Long-Necked Dinosaurs

In Praise of Sauropods

The Sauropoda were the heavy-weights of the Dinosauria clade.  Lizard-hipped herbivores that evolved into the biggest terrestrial animals known to science.  Not all the Sauropods were giants, some genera could even be described as relative dwarfs, for example Europasaurus and the tiny Magyarosaurus which was no bigger than a pony.  Over the last few months, we have seen the resurrection of the Brontosaurus genus and the discovery of a number of new types of Sauropodomorph such as Sefapanosaurus which was announced in June.  These are interesting times for the long-necks.

In addition, to seeing lots of very colourful (and not very anatomically accurate), Sauropods in schools, we too have been updating one or two of our Sauropod illustrations, particularly the diplodocids.

The above dinosaur drawing is based on the Papo Young Apatosaurus dinosaur figure that came out earlier this year.  This illustration has been used in a number of our downloads to schools and home educationalists to help support our teaching work and other educational projects.
