Nigersaurus



dinosaur picture nigersaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Sauropodomorpha
  Infraorder Sauropoda
  Family Rebbachisauridae
  Genus Nigersaurus
Nigersaurus was a plant-eater (herbivore) that lived in Africa during the Cretaceous period, between about 119 and 99 million years ago.

Nigersaurus was relatively small for a Sauropod dinosaur - it was about 30 feet (9 meters) long and weighed about 4 tons. Its bones were hollow and had many air spaces, and as a result, fossils do not tend to be well-preserved and it was poorly known until recently.

The most unusual feature of Nigersaurus was its style of feeding. Its mouth was the widest part of its head and was equipped with several hundred small sharp teeth. As one tooth wore out, it was replaced by another (up to 9 replacement teeth lay behind each cutting tooth), perhaps as often as once per month. Nigersaurus is believed to have eaten like a lawn-mower, taking it predigious quantities of low-lying vegetation.

Nigersaurus is also noted for having neural spines on its vertebrae. In life, flesh or skin was probably stretched between these.
