Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Sauropodomorpha
  Infraorder Prosauropoda
  Family Plateosauridae
  Genus Plateosaurus
Plateosaurus was a herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in Europe during the late Triassic period, between about 222 and 218 million years ago.

Plateosaurus was about 20 to 33 feet (6 to 10 meters) long, and weighed something in the region of 0.7 tons. It appears to have been quite a common animal, and fossils of Plateosaurus have been found in a number of locations including in France, Germany, Switzerland, and Greenland. In fact, fossils of Plateosaurus were even found in a rock core removed by oil-drillers from deep under the North Sea!

Plateosaurus was one of the earliest dinosaurs to be scientifically described. The first description of the animal was published in 1837 by Hermann von Meyer, based on fossils discovered three years earlier by Johann Friedrich Engelhardt at Heroldsberg (which is near Nuremberg) in Germany.

  1. Plateosaurus was a genus of dinosaur.

  2. "Plateosaurus" means "flat lizard".

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

  4. Plateosaurus was a Prosauropod - a member of a group of related early herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaurs which had long necks, small heads, shorter forelimbs than hind limbs, and a thumb claw.

  5. Plateosaurus lived between about 222 million years ago and 218 million years ago, during the Triassic period.

  6. Plateosaurus lived in Europe. Fossils of the animal have been found in Germany, France, Switzerland, Greenland, and even in rocks recovered from under the North Sea.

Product Description:
The first volume in a series of six comic-book adventures that bring the dinosaurs back to life.

The Journey, the first title in Abbeville's Dinosaurs series, features over 60 pages in full-color. It takes place in the late Triassic period, 210 million years ago, in the northern part of the supercontinent Pangaea. It follows the dangerous trek of a Plateosaurus—a giant herbivore—and her hatchlings in search of food.

In Abbeville’s Dinosaurs series, a talented artist and a noted paleontologist have teamed up to re-create the vanished world of the dinosaurs for young readers. Each volume in the series tells the story, in comic-book form, of a different dinosaur living in its particular geological time and place. The narrative is entertaining, while all the details of the dinosaur’s behavior and its encounters with other species are rendered with scientific accuracy. At the back of each volume, meanwhile, are several short essays, abundantly illustrated with original drawings and photographs of fossils, that explain more about the creatures and geographical settings encountered in the comic.
