Apatosaurus facts

Once known as Brontosaurus this mulching machine had a massive body. It had teeth that were like the prongs on a rake-it could strip plant matter from trees but now chew on it. Although it had only one thumb claw on its front feet the claw had enough force behind it to rip a meat eater in two . Once it grew to full adult size , a healthy "Apatosaurus" was safe from almost predators .
