Diplodocus

Diplodocus (/dɪˈplɒdəkəs/, /dˈplɒdəkəs/, in reference to its double-beamed chevron bones located in the underside of the tail. Chevron bones of this particular form were initially believed to be unique to Diplodocus; since then they have been discovered in other members of the diplodocid family as well as in nondiplodocid sauropods, such as Mamenchisaurus. It is now common scientific opinion that Seismosaurus hallorum is a species of Diplodocus.

The sauropod dinosaurs also knowan as the long neck dinosaur was one of the largest dinosaurs to ever walk the earth, In fact their necks on average wieghted 16000 kilograms and was 33 meters in lenght but why their eggs so small you may ask? Scientist discovered the mystery fo us! The eggs would wiegh 1.5 kilograms about the same size and wieght of an ostrich egg. If you compare the incubation times it takes 42 days to hatch an ostrich egg but our good friend dippy took between 65 and 82 days! By making moms making their eggs so small they could more easily protect them from predation. So now we know moms always have known best!
