Jobaria

About Jobaria

Jobaria was a huge dinosaur who belonged to the Sauropoda group. Scientists believe that Jobaria was not closely related to any other sauropod, however. Instead, it is thought that this large plant-eater was probably a leftover from an earlier age of dinosaurs. Jobaria had a shorter neck and less complex bone structure than most other sauropods. This dinosaur was discovered in 1997 by a team of paleontologists in Niger, Africa. These scientsists found 95 percent of an adult animal and a complete skeleton from a younger animal, along with parts from many other animals of the same species. It is believed that they were probably killed in a large single event such as a flash flood.
