Description

Omeisaurus (meaning "Omei lizard") is a genus of sauropod dinosaur from the Late Jurassic Period of what is now China. Its name comes from Mount Emei, where it was discovered. Like other sauropods, Omeisaurus was herbivorous and large. It had the typical bulky body and long neck of other dinosaurs in its suborder. Unlike many sauropods, however, its nostrils were located close to the end of its nose. The back of the Omeisaurus was higher at its hips than at its shoulders. Not only did Omeisaurus have a long neck, it also had several more neck vertebrae than average sauropods (17). The vertebrae themselves were also longer and bigger. Large herds of Omeisaurus probably roamed the late Jurassic countryside, alongside such late Jurassic stegosaurids as Tuojiangosaurus and Chungkingosaurus. Omeisaurus was probably the most common late Jurassic sauropod in China. (information from wikipedia.org) This replica is a complete skeleton of Omeisaurus.
