Diplodocus dinosaur

The name of this dinosaur is Diplodocus. It is a plant eater and is part of the brontosaurus family. Diplodocus means “double beam”.  It belongs to a group of dinosaurs called sauropods. It grew about 30 feet tall (that’s as tall as a 3-story building). Diplodocus had to watch out for allesaurus’ because Diplodocus might get eaten.  It is one of the most easily identifiable dinosaurs, with its classic dinosaur shape, long neck and tail and four sturdy legs.

Diplodocus as well as many of the other dinosaurs probably spent a good part of their time in the water, where they fed upon water plants and escaped their natural enemies, the carnivorous dinosaurs (meat eating meanies) living at the same time. There are a number of anatomical features that suggest their watery habit. The external nostrils on his nose are situated high on the head, which would enable the animal partly to submerge the head under water and still breathe.

Below is what they look like after being on a diet.
