Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata

  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Sauropodomorpha

  Genus Alamosaurus
Alamosaurus was a massive plant-eater (herbivore) that lived in the late Cretaceous period, between about 70 and 65 million years ago, in North America - in the region that is today the southwestern part of the United States.

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.

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

  2. "Alamosaurus" means "Alamo lizard" ("Alamo" refers to the Ojo Alamo Formation, the former name of a geological formation (today known as the "Kirtland Shale") in New Mexico, and does not refer to The Alamo in Texas). The name was chosen by Charles W. Gilmore in 1922.

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