A young Camarasaurus

While we’re on a juvenile sauropod kick, I thought I should add this in. It’s a cast of a beautifully preserved and near complete Camarasaurus and various photos of the original are knocking around in all kinds of places. Of course it immediately evokes (to me anyway) this mount I recently saw in Japan.

Hopefully there’ll be some time for some longer posts soon with my trip now over. There’s still some catching up to do, but I should get a bit more writing time.

    This isn’t just a juvenile Camarasaurus, it’s the juvenile Camarasaurus — the one monographed in loving detail by Gilmore (1925), and the keystone in the understanding of sauropod ontogeny!

    This is one of those top 10 most complete dinosaur skeletons discovered, isn’t it? One of these days, I’d love to find a list of all of the most complete skeletons that we have.

      Well ‘The Dinosauria’ is the closest you can get to that, but it means sorting through it all, and it is 7 years old now….

    The Musings always shows us lots of bones, but lately: wow,
    It has more vertebrae of sauropods than SVPOW!
