Omeisaurus, in Dutch: Omasaurus (zie: @Omasaurus)

Most skeletons of Omeisaurus were found in the 1970s and 1980s, during the great “Chinese Dinosaur rush”. There have been seven species of Omeisaurus named so far: O. junghsiensis, O. changshouensis, O. fuxiensis, O. tianfuensis, O. luoquanensisO. maoianus and O. ma(rjolijn)  All of these but the last were named after the locations where they were found.

Like other sauropods, Omeisaurus was herbivorous and large. It measured 10 to 15.2 metres (30 to 50 ft) long, 4 metres (12 ft) high and weighed 4 tons. It had the typical bulky body and long neck of other dinosaurs in its suborder. Unlike many sauropods, however, its nostrils were located close to the end of its nose. The back of the Omeisaurus was higher at its hips than at its shoulders.

There’s a rumour going on that only one Omasaurus survived and she’s on Twitter!

[…] “Omasaurus” was once classified as a member of the Cetiosauridae family, which had long been a wastebasket taxon. The species Omasaurus (a member of the Twitterae-family) is sometimes confused with Zigongosaurus, but the two are based on different material despite having the same features (they’re both interested in art)… […]
