"It is clear that Moabosaurus can be readily differentiated from other North American Early Cretaceous sauropods, as well as from the Late Jurassic Camarasaurus. We now compare Moabosaurus to two roughly contemporaneous taxa that share a number of similarities, Turiasaurus of Spain and Tendaguria of Tanzania," the researchers wrote in the study.
MG 30485 differs from the morphology presented by Lourinhasaurus with a subtriangular outline, common in other non-titanosauriform sauropods such as Camarasaurus (Osborn and Mook, 1921; Ostrom and McIntosh, 1966), Haplocanthosaurus (Hatcher, 1903) or Diplodocus (Hatcher, 1901/ For no other Iberian Late Jurassic sauropod have been described a transversely elongated iliac pubic peduncle (Casanovas et al., 2011; Royo-Torres et al., 2006; 2014; Barco, 2009; Mannion et al., 2012; 2013; Mateus et al., 2014)
The collection now also includes an impressive three-metre-high utahraptor, a baby camarasaurus and a huge pterodactyl with a two-metre wingspan.
David Button of England's University of Bristol and colleagues took CT scans of the skulls of two sauropods: Camarasaurus (left) and Diplodocus.
However, in 1903 researchers determined that the Brontosaurus bones were actually the bones of an Apatosaurus dinosaur mistakenly coupled with the skull of a Camarasaurus dinosaur--and the researchers concluded that there was no such thing as a Brontosaurus dinosaur.
In this study, authors estimated tooth replacement rates in Diplodocus and Camarasaurus, two distantly related, different-looking sauropod dinosaurs of similar giant size.
Other stars of the show are animatronic models of the Protoceratops, Oviraptor, Velociraptor, Gallimimus, Camarasaurus and the earliest living bird, Archaeopteryx, as well as fossils of pterosaurs, pliosaurs and ammonites.
Yes, we may be talking about a Tarbosaurus, Oviraptor, Protoceratops, Velociraptor, Gallimimus and Camarasaurus - but let's, instead, say hello (and please don't get too close) to Zeek, Albert, Nel, Shirley, Sid and (everyone's favourite, it seems) Toby.
The two dinosaurs initially selected for study -- Brachiosaurus brancai and camarasaurus -- were close cousins of the massive plant-eating dinosaur known as the brontosaurus.
