Alamosaurus - the largest dinosaur in North America


Alamosaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaurs that lived during the late Cretaceous period in what is now southern North America. The herbivore Alamosaurus was the largest genus of North American dinosaurs of its time.

An interesting fact about the name "Alamosaurus" is that although this dinosaur is found in large numbers in this state, it does not bear the name of the Texan Alamo. Instead, it means "Ojo Alamo lizard" in Greek, and it is named for the Ojo Alamo sandstone formation in New Mexico, where the first fossil specimen of the species was found.

New discovery for paleontology

Before the North American herbivore large dinosaur was discovered, all major North American dinosaurs were thought to have gone extinct in the late Jurassic period. However, the discovery of this species and the discovery of many fossil specimens of this dinosaur family in Texas showed that these giant creatures lived in North America during the Early Age. It is unclear how these dinosaurs began to live in North America, but some paleontologists speculate that they crossed the Bering Land Bridge from Asia and then migrated to the southern part of the continent where the climate was more favorable and stable for them.


After finding numerous fossils of this dinosaur in Texas, paleontologists conducted some analysis of how many dinosaurs may have lived in Texas during this time. Some estimates say that between 250,000 and 350,000 of these dinosaurs may have lived in Texas at the same time, possibly in large herds.


Enemies of the Herbivorous Great Dragon Allosaurus

Although the Great Herbivore lives in the same region of North America as large carnivores such as Tyrannosaurus Rex, it is unlikely to have been hunted by them. A full-grown North American Herbivorous Great Dinosaur may be too large to be taken down by a lone Tyrannosaurus rex. However, it is quite possible that smaller members of this species were regularly preyed upon by large predators.
