Cetiosaurus



dinosaur picture cetiosaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Sauropodomorpha
  Infraorder Sauropoda
  Family Cetiosauridae
  Subfamily Cetiosaurinae
  Genus Cetiosaurus
Cetiosaurus was a massive plant-eating (herbivorous) dinosaur that lived in the Jurassic period between about 181 and 169 million years ago. Fossils of the animal have been found in England (it was in fact the first Sauropod to be discovered in England), and Morocco.

The animal was named by Sir Richard Owen in 1841, the year before he coined the term "dinosauria". Owen choose the name "Cetiosaurus" which means "whale lizard", because he believed at the time that the animal was a marine creature, most likely a large crocodilian. In fact, it was not until 1869 (and then thanks to Thomas Huxley) that Cetiosaurus was recognized as a dinosaur.

Cetiosaurus was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and weighed in the region of 25 tons. It's neck/head as as long as its body, but the tail was much longer. It is also unusual in that unlike more advanced Sauropods (like Brachiosaurus), Cetiosaurus does not have hollow bones.

Here is a summary of some of the key facts about Cetiosaurus:

  2. "Cetiosaurus" means "whale lizard". This name was chosen by Sir Richard Owen in 1841, because he originally believed the creature to be a marine creature.
