Rest In Peace

144-163 million years ago during the late Jurassic period
Despite Apatosaurus’s large size, he didn’t eat other animals. He was an herbivorous dinosaur, meaning that he only ate plants. His long neck was adapted for foraging even the tallest trees. His diet consisted of twigs, and needles of sequoia, fir, and pine trees. He probably also ate plants low to the ground. To help digest his food, Apatosaurus swallowed stones to grind the food in his stomach. Apatosaurus lived in southwest North America, so the climate was mostly mild. Also, he lived near trees and other plants, as that was what he ate.
