Apatosaurus /əˌpætɵˈsɔrəs/, sometimes known by the popular synonym Brontosaurus, is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the Jurassic Period (Kimmeridgian and early Tithonian ages).[1] It was one of the largest land animals known to have ever existed, with an average length of 23 m (75 ft) and a mass of at least 16 metric tons (18 short tons)

Apatosaurus is a member of the family Diplodocidae, a clade of gigantic sauropod dinosaurs.

Apatosaurus was a large, long-necked quadrupedal animal with a long, whip-like tail. Its forelimbs were slightly shorter than its hindlimbs.

Othniel Charles Marsh, a Professor of Palaeontology at Yale University, described and named an incomplete (and juvenile) skeleton of Apatosaurus ajax in 1877
