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.

Cetiosaurus Facts

 
Here is a summary of some of the key facts about Cetiosaurus:
  1. Cetiosaurus was a genus of dinosaur.

  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.

  3. Cetiosaurus was a member of the Saurischia ("lizard-hipped") order of dinosaurs. What this means, is that although Cetiosaurus was not closely related to lizards, it did have similarly shaped pelvic bones.

  4. Cetiosaurus was a Sauropod - a member of a group of related large quadrupedal herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaur with long necks.

  5. Cetiosaurus lived between about 181 million years ago and 169 million years ago, during the Jurassic period.

  6. Cetiosaurus lived in Europe and Africa. Fossils have been found in England and Morocco.

  7. Cetiosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater).

  8. Cetiosaurus was about 59 feet (18 meters) long.

Product Description:
Today, any kid can rattle off the names of dozens of dinosaurs. But it took centuries of scientific effort―and a lot of luck―to discover and establish the diversity of dinosaur species we now know. How did we learn that Triceratops had three horns? Why don’t many paleontologists consider Brontosaurus a valid species? What convinced scientists that modern birds are relatives of ancient Velociraptor?

In The Story of the Dinosaurs in 25 Discoveries, Donald R. Prothero tells the fascinating stories behind the most important fossil finds and the intrepid researchers who unearthed them. In twenty-five vivid vignettes, he weaves together dramatic tales of dinosaur discoveries with what modern science now knows about the species to which they belong. Prothero takes us from eighteenth-century sightings of colossal bones taken for biblical giants through recent discoveries of enormous predators even larger than Tyrannosaurus. He recounts the escapades of the larger-than-life personalities who made modern paleontology, including scientific rivalries like the nineteenth-century “Bone Wars.” Prothero also details how to draw the boundaries between species and explores debates such as whether dinosaurs had feathers, explaining the findings that settled them or keep them going. Throughout, he offers a clear and rigorous look at what paleontologists consider sound interpretation of evidence. An essential read for any dinosaur lover, this book teaches us to see an ancient world ruled by giant majestic creatures anew.
