Hi Booboo
Wow, look at these big guys! They are so long, the fourth pic shows both of them from the third floor balcony. It was the only way mom could get both whole animals in one pic. On the top is the apatosaurus, formerly known as brontosaurus. The bottom one is diplodocus. In the first row, the first pic shows diplodocus carnegiei's front. He's the first whole dino found for the museum. He was named after Andrew Carnegie. The third pic shows apatosaurus louisae, named after Mrs. Carnegie. The middle shows both their heads and long necks. The apatosaurus was the heavier of the 2, but stretched a mere 85 feet from head to tail. The diplodocus weighed less, but goes 100 feet, head to tail. In the hall, they are mounted with their tails raised, which is a better way to view them than before, when most of these guys used to be mounted with their tails dragging. Trackways of these sauropods have been found in many places in the world, and never once has a tail track been found with them, so they walked with tails up. These are gentle herbivores, and gigantism was their self defense. Are there animals today who use the same defense? Think elephants, rhinos, and hippos, and you know the answer. Unfortunately when there is an extinction event, these giants are the first to go. They are just too big to adapt easily to changing climate, vegetation, etc. They are also called titanosaurs, and are a highlight of our Jurassic exhibit. There's more to know about them, but space is running out. Thanks for your vote, see you tomorrow. Hugs and V4U Gizmo
