Here are a few exciting facts about the Apatosaurus:
- Apatosaurus was the original name of this dinosaur, but upon confusion when excavating an adult version, the adult version was named “Brontosaurus,” which stuck in popular culture. It’s only recently that the name has since been changed back to Apatosaurus.
- The Apatosaurus could grow up to lengths of 75 feet, and weigh over 23 tons!
- It is estimated that it only took about 10 years for the Apatosaurus to reach its full growth.
- It was first excavated in 1877, and the excavation in 1879 was the fossil dig-up that caused the confusion between the Apatosaurus, and the other named “Brontosaurus,” but it wasn’t until 1903 that it was decreed to be the same species.
