Alamosaurus was usually around 69 feet (21 meters) long, and probably weighed around 33 tons.
The first fossils of Alamosaurus were found by Charles W. Gilmore in 1922. He found a pelvic bone ("ischium") and a shoulder bone ("scapula"). Later in 1946, Gilmore discovered further fossils, including a complete tail, a nearly complete right forelimb, and both pelvic bones ("ischia"). Various other Alamosaurus fossils have also subsequently been found in the southwestern US, but no skull material (other than a few teeth) have yet been found.
Alamosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived from 70 to 65 million years ago
