Phylogenetic attempts to determine the relationship between Haplocanthosaurus and its other sauropod brethren are inconclusive, with some studies finding it to be a primitive macronarian (more primitive than other sauropods), and others suggesting that it could be a primitive diplodocoid and closer to the Diplodocus in nature. According to LiveScience (Source), they have three possible theories. Dreadnoughtus […], Accidentally touching your hot oven rack makes you painfully aware that metals are very good at conducting heat. I start to think of those giant Sauropod dinosaur skeletons and prehistoric swamps where they lived. Diplodocus was lived at the end of the Jurassic period. This swimming reptile is the Elasmosaurus. Science Trends is a popular source of science news and education around the world. Their prolonged neck served to help them eat vegetation from the tops of trees.

Many of the sources listed this dinosaur as having the longest neck. “I found my first dinosaur bone when I was 6, growing up in Montana. Lived it 150 million years ago during late Jurassic period, Diplodocus is herbivorous dinosaur that had four strong legs with super-long neck. The neck of the Brachiosaurus is believed to be composed of 13 long cervical vertebrae, and this long neck allowed it to reach vegetation that was possibly as high as 9 meters (30 feet) off the ground. Read on to learn more! One interesting study about Sauropod tails (Source) suggests that dinosaurs like Brontosaurus, Apatosaurus and Diplodocus could whip their tail and make a loud, even supersonic, cracking sound.

The word Sauropoda comes from the Greek word meaning “lizard-footed.” It was coined and used for the first time in 1878 by a paleontologist named O. C. Marsh. Part of the uncertainty about the size of the dinosaur comes from the fact that the most complete specimen is likely a juvenile. The Camarasaurus lived somewhere between 155 to 145 mya, during the Late Jurassic era, and like the Brachiosaurus and Apatosaurus, it was discovered in the Morrison Formation. Ever since then, I’ve been interested in dinosaurs.” — Jack Horner. GIANT 32 page Dinosaur Coloring Poster for classroom art.

Diplodocus translates from neo-Latin as a “double beam” and it is in reference to the dinosaur’s double-beamed chevrons (bones located on the bottom of the tail in many reptiles). (Source). The total length for them was 12 meters, and they got a total weight of about 14 tons. Other Brachiosaurus fossils have been found in the US states of Oklahoma, Utah, and Wyoming, although the fossils coming out of Colorado have been the most complete skeletons found. The Diplodocus was astonishingly long and is amongst the longest known dinosaurs. Want to know more? […]. There is a preserved Saltasau egg displayed for visitors at Utah’s North American Museum of Ancient Life. ● Titanosaurids- were also known as “Titanic lizards.”. Long neck dinosaurs are Sauropods, a species of dinosaur that lived in the Mesozoic Era. Australian […], In mathematics, an asymptote of a function is a line that a function get infinitesimally closer to, but never reaches. They have long necks and tails, small heads and four thick legs. I'm fortunate enough to have visited fossil museums in Europe (UK, Germany, and Spain), the US (California, Texas) and in Asia (China). The neck of the Mamenchisaurus was 32 feet long, and the total dinosaur measured an astonishing 90 feet (27.4 meters) from head to tail. They could reach up 9 metres high - the same as two double-decker buses stacked on top of each other. Welcome to this website where I take a deep look into the dinosaur world - for young and old!

Although the neck was very long, the neck vertebrae were filled with air, making their necks lightweight. It’s interesting that in present-day giraffes, we see these same characteristics and use of the long neck. They are noted to have developed lengthy necks, up to 30 feet (9.1 meters), tree trunk legs, and relatively small heads. The long neck dinosaurs are called Sauropods. The genus is lacking a skull for the specimens, with the best specimen being a fairly well-preserved skeleton lacking the neck and head. eval(ez_write_tag([[250,250],'adventuredinosaurs_com-leader-1','ezslot_4',111,'0','0'])); Another contender for the longest neck was the Diplodocus (meaning double-beam). eval(ez_write_tag([[468,60],'adventuredinosaurs_com-large-mobile-banner-1','ezslot_3',114,'0','0'])); ● Opisthocoelicaudia- lived a late cretaceous period like 70 million years ago. The dinosaur was discovered in the Morrison Formation, a geological formation that covers what is now parts of Oklahoma, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado in the US. They weighed almost 30 tons and length more than 30 meters. It wasn't just on land that long necked creatures evolved. Well, in the 1970s, scientists realized that the skeletons built earlier had mixed the head of the Brontosaurus with the Apatosaurus.
