The Apatosaurus existed about 150 million years ago. It was one of the largest land animals that ever lived, with an average length of 75 ft and a mass of at least 25 tons. The name Apatosaurus means ' deceptive lizard ' partly because the bones were similar to those of a prehistoric marine lizard.
It is not known how the Apatosaurus ate enough food to satisfy their enormous bodies.
It is likely that they ate constantly, pausing only to cool off, drink or to remove parasites. It is believed that they slept standing upright. They likely relied on their enormous size and herd behavior to scare off predators.
