Lufengosaurus

About Lufengosaurus

Lufengosaurus was discovered in China by Young Chung Chien in 1943. This strange dinosaur had large powerful hind legs and smaller arm-like front legs. Lufengosaurus' strong back legs could be used by Lufengosaurus to stand straight up, allowing the animal to reach higher plants, such as the tops of trees. It could then use its arm-like front legs to put the food into its mouth.
