Haplocanthosaurus

About Haplocanthosaurus

Haplocanthosaurus was discovered by John Bell Hatcher in 1901, near Canyon City, Colorado, USA. This type of dinosaur lived for many millions of years and was found throughout the Earth. Like other Sauropods, Haplocanthosaurus breathed through nostrils found in the top of its head. This large animal spent its time lumbering slowly in search of food. Large sauropods would have required a tremendous amount of food to feed their monstrous metabolisms.
