barosaurus facts

This Jurassic giant has been described as diplodocus-only longer . It is one of the rarest members of the family Diplodocidae. Barosaurs's head was mall and so were its teeth. It ate soft plant material unlike another dinosaur that lived at the same time, Camarasaurus which ate tougher more fibrous plants . Therefore even though barosaurs and Camarasaurs lived side by side they did not compete with each other for food.
