CAMARASAURUS.


As its name suggests, (Camarasaurus) comes from camera .... but not the camera taking pictures. It refers to the camera as room as hollow, or internal and covered space. This refers to two bone peculiarities: the vertebrae, though robust, are quite hollow inside, and on the other hand, the skull was square and its huge nostrilsgiving the sense of having a very hollow or empty skull.



But what was a Camarasaurus?

It was a herbivore, a great vegetarian 18 meters long and 18 tons. It was a long sauropod like Diplodocus or Argentinosaurus. It was not as big as them, even for a sauropod, had a rather short neck and tail. However, the body was very strong, so experts estimate that could reach 18 tons.
It lived 150 million years ago in what is now North America.

Another curiosity is that when paleontologists mounted their bones, found a lump of hip bones. It has been speculated about this, and apparently could be that it was another brain, hip, not in the head ... I repeat: another brain in the hip. Finally, another brain or nerve plexus great about it .... still no full consensus.

The other curiosity we can emphasize is the domed shape of its skull. The experts believe that this will served as a sounding board to create a sound effect that could be used to communicate with other Camarasaurus. I imagine a Camarasaurus, warning of the attack by a group of Allosaurus, with a sort of nasal sound, similar to today's large ships when they enter port.

More things:

  • The Camarasaurus could not be applied on its hind legs.
  • Its front legs have claws capable of giving a good blow to their attackers.
  • Analyzed his teeth, thought to eat vegetables harder than Diplodocus.
  • It lived in the Jurassic.
  • To facilitate digestion, it could swallow stones, as is currently done some birds and other herbivores.

  1. Velociraptors had physically powerful jaws with rows of bladed teeth. These, in combination with huge claws on their forelimbs and sickle-shaped talons on the second toe (the size of these claws could arrive at up to the length of the teeth on extinct saber-toothed cats), gave the animals some imposing weaponry.I liked your blog, Take the time to visit the me and say that the change in design and meniu?
