Exhibit Rental Information

Sauropod dinosaurs were the largest animals to ever walk the earth.Although they evolved from small ancestors, by the time true sauropods evolved near the end of the Triassic (200 million years ago) they had already reached body masses of over 10 tons. The largest species, such as the titanosaur, Argentinosaurus, tipped the scales at over 50 tons. Their size is only surpassed by baleen whales, whose weight is supported by water.

Several factors helped sauropods reach such enormous sizes.

• Their long neck long necks allowed them to feed on plants smaller dinosaurs could not reach.
• Their pneumatic bones were full of air spaces that helped reduce the weight of their large bodies by as much as 10%.
• These air spaces were connected to the lungs and helped sauropods breathe more efficiently.
• Being large helped protect healthy adults from attacks by predatory dinosaurs.
