Riojasaurus

About Riojasaurus

The Dinosaur Riojasaurus lived around 220 million years ago. For its time, Riojasaurus was truly a massive beast. Riojasaurus was probably not directly related to the later Sauropod giants which were even larger, and which lived during the Jurassic Period. Riojasaurus used its flattened teeth to cut and grind plants, effectively turning its food into a wet pulp.
