Modern science refers to the ‘Brontosaurus’ as ‘Apatosaurus’. Once thought to have lived half submerged in water, it’s now known that the Brontosaurus lived on land, ambling about on massive stocky legs, its tail raised off the ground while in motion. Despite having hugely long necks, the Brontosaurus could not raise its head very high above its body. Brontosaurus are among the largest land animals in history, over 75 feet long and with a mass of at least 25 short tons. Brontosaurs have a single huge claw on each forelimb and three claws on their hind limbs. Juvenile Brontosaurs are semi-bipedal, able to run on their hind legs with their forelegs in the air; older ones had to keep all four on the ground to support their weight.
