Little is known about the early plant-eating dinosaurs called Prosauropods. Melanorosaurus is one of the first Prosauropods to be discovered. Estimates of its size vary greatly from 20 feet in length to 40 feet. Melanorosaurus probably used its massive size and long neck to eat high growing vegetation. Notice how Melanorosaurus' legs extend straight down from its body. This is one feature that helps distinguish dinosaurs from other reptiles, whose legs usually stick out to the side.
