The Barosaurus is a relatively rare sauropod. The first dinosaur of this type was found in the Black Hills, South Dakota. However, their remains have also been found in East Africa, suggesting the connection of the modern African and North American continents. during the late Jurassic times.
The Barosaurus' neck was over 30 feet long, longer than its closest relative, the giant blue-tailed Diplodocus., but its tail was shorter and its hind limbs more robust.
