History:

Though Camarasaurus was first discovered and named in the late1870s, a complete skeleton would not be discovered until 1925.Since then, many complete skeletons have been uncovered, which israre for sauropods, whose skulls are fragile and normally destroyedbefore fossilization can happen. Camarasaurus has a skull that isquite distinctive among sauropod dinosaurs, in that it is deep andblunted. Many sauropod skulls, such as those of Diplodocus orApatosaurus, are known to be longer and narrower.

Camarsaurus remains are frequently found in a location calledthe Morrison Foundation, alongside popular and iconic dinosaurslike Apatosaurus and Stegosaurus. It was likely preyed upon bypredatory theropods including Ceratosaurus and Allosaurus.
