Camarasaurus Left Hind Leg (Lyle)

Camarasaurus supremus (Lyle)

The Camarasaurus sauropod dinosaur known as Lyle is the largest discovered to date. Perhaps 50% of the skeleton was found. Much of the skeleton is still in plaster jackets awaiting preparation. Quite a lot of sauropod skeletons and bones have been found but replicas skeletons are very expensive due to their size. Even skeletal elements such as skulls, leg bones, ribs and vertebra are very rare even as replicas.

The left rear leg (femur to toes) offered here comes mounded and is 10 feet tall.

Femur Length 65.74 Inches

Fibula/Tibia Length 34.3 Inches

Metatarsal IV (longest) 11.41 Inches

A list of other Camarasaurus (Lyle) replica bones is available from Prehistoric Planet.

Camarasaurus was a genus of quadrupedal, herbivorous dinosaurs. It was the most common of the giant sauropods to be found in North America. Its fossil remains have been found in the Morrison Formation of Colorado and Utah, dating to the Late Jurassic epoch (Kimmeridgian to Tithonian stages), between 155 and 145 million years ago.

Camarasaurus presented a distinctive cranial profile of a blunt snout and an arched skull that was remarkably square. It likely travelled in herds, or at least in family groups.
The name means "chambered lizard", referring to the hollow chambers in its vertebrae.

The largest species, Camarasaurus. supremus, reached a maximum length of 23 meters (75 ft) and maximum estimated weight of 47 tons (51.8 tons.
