Jurassic World & Diplodocus. Ten Things You Should Know

Jurassic World film is scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015 in the United States and Canada. Superb!

According to the official trailer a new species of dinosaur will be created in the lab… Absolutely destructive! But how about typical species as the Diplodocus? Yes, they also appear in the movie.

Today, ten things you should know about a more pacific species of dinosaur: Diplodocus!

1.- Fossils were first discovered in 1877 by S. W. Williston, and for many years, it was the longest dinosaur known.

2.- A Diplodocus has double-beamed chevron bones located in the underside of the tail.

3.- They lived in what is now western North America at the end of the Jurassic Period.

4.- Diplodocus ranged from about 154 to 150 million years ago. A time dominated by gigantic sauropod dinosaurs such as Apatosaurus and Brachiosaurus.

5.- Diplodocus is one the most easily identifiable dinosaurs, with its classic dinosaur shape, long neck and tail, and four sturdy legs.

6.- Old science assumed that the animal was aquatic. But now, general consensus claims that it was a terrestrial animal, browsing on trees, ferns and bushes.

7.- It seems that Diplodocus grew at a very fast rate, reaching sexual maturity at just over a decade, and they keep on growing throughout their lives.

8.- Donations of many skeletal casts of Diplodocus by Andrew Carnegie did much to familiarize people with this dinosaur (The Carnegie Museum of Natural Historyin Pittsburgh).

9.- Thus, Diplodocus has been a famous dinosaur and it has been on display in more places than any other dinosaurs.

10.- Diplodocus has been a frequent subject in books, films, and TV shows: Walking with Dinosaurs.
