Camptosaurus



dinosaur picture camptosaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  Infraorder Ornithopoda
  Family Camptosauridae
  Genus Camptosaurus
Camptosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in Europe and North America during the late Jurassic period, about 155 to 145 million years ago. Many fossils have been found, which suggests Camptosaurus was a common dinosaur in its time.

Camptosaurus legs were long and powerful, with 3 hoofed toes. Its arms were much shorter, but also had hoof-like nails. So while Camptosaurus could walk on two feet, it probably mostly walked on all fours, and ate low lying vegetation.

Camptosaurus was about 20 feet (6.1 meters) long.

Camptosaurus was first described in 1879 by Othniel C. Marsh. Originally, Othniel C. Marsh named the creature "Camptonotus", but he changed the name to Camptosaurus in 1885 because the original name was already being used for a cricket. Both variants of the name mean "bent lizard", which was chosen because the animal would have had to have its back arched whenever standing on all fours.

Product Description:
Wyoming is home to some of the world's most famous dinosaurs. As early as 1872, dinosaurs were excavated, placed on railcars, and shipped east. For the past 140 years, paleontologists have scoured Wyoming to excavate tens of thousands of dinosaur bones, now displayed internationally. It was not until 1961 that a dinosaur from Wyoming was mounted and placed on display at the University of Wyoming's Geological Museum in Laramie.

Product Description:
CollectA's detailed replica of the Iguanodon is lifelike down to the wrinkles in its hide and its bony skull. Since it was first described in 1825, the Iguanodon has been classified and reclassified, as scientists have learned more from studying fossils. Paleontologists now believe the Iguanodon could walk on all fours and on its hind legs, as shown here. The creature's head resembles that of today's iguana, which is how it got its name. It may have grown to be 43 feet long. This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 6.3''L x 3.5''H.
