Brontosaurus excelsus

Apatosaurus excelsus

Brontosaurus, or Apatosaurus if you prefer, was one of the large sauropods that lived in North America at the end of the Jurassic. In contrast to the camarasaurs and brachiosaurs that were contemporary in its range, Brontosaurus had a long neck held low to the ground, like Diplodocus. An historically important specimen, this massive skeleton was originally collected by a Carnegie Museum expedition and eventually given to the State of Wyoming. This enormous TPI reproduction is based on more original fossil material from one individual specimen than any other Apatosaurus or Brontosaurus skeleton.
