Borealosaurus (name meaning "North-Wind Lizard") is a genus of titanosaurian sauropod dinosaur that originated during the Early Cretaceous period in in Asia, Europe, and other parts of the world.
Era & DiscoveryEdit
It was first discovered in 2004 and named in honor of Swedish paleontologist Carl Wiman, who named the first Chinese dinosaur.
As a member of the sauropod family of dinosaurs, despite being small compared to larger sauropods, like Brachiosaurus and even Argentinosaurus, Borealosaurus was still one of the largest dinosaurs that ever lived on Earth. Standing about 20 feet (6 m) tall at the hips, measuring 60 feet (18 m) long, and weighed 20 tons (40,000 lbs.), these were magnificent dinosaurs. They could crash through vegetation and it would take a lot to stop them.
Much like most other sauropods, the body design of Borealosaurus was that of a horizontal shape.
Behavior & TraitsEdit
Like all sauropods, Borealosaurus lived in herds of dozen of individuals. Borealosaurs were harmless vegetarians, unless they treaded on anything in their path. Large animals like these; they wouldn't normally live in dense forests. Ergo, they would normally be out in the large plains and grasslands.
Like all sauropods, Borealosaurus could not chew their food, therefore, they often had to eat stones and used them to grind down the food in their stomach.
