About Apatosaurus
Apatosaurus is one of the most famous dinosaurs of all time. Haven't heard of it? Well, what about Brontosaurus?
In the early 1900s, a famous dinosaur scientist, or palaeontologist, by the name of Othniel Charles Marsh discovered what he thought were three separate species of dinosaurs. He named one Apatosaurus, one Brontosaurus, and one Atlantosaurus. However, after much study, it became clearer that the three were actually the same animal. Since the first one named was Apatosaurus, that became the official name. Yet, the name Brontosaurus has lived on in popular culture.

Apatosaurus had a short snout filled with weak, peg-like teeth, which it used to rake leaves off of trees.

Although not as tall as some of the other Sauropods, it was one of the heaviest.
