Atlasaurus imelakai was a quadrupedal herbivorous sauropod. This sauropod was discovered in Morocco's Atlas Mountains. It was a massive dinosaur measuring up to 50 feet in length and weighing between 10-15 tons. The unusually long legs of Atlasaurus- longer than any other known genus of sauropod--point to its unmistakable kinship with the North American and Eurasian Brachiosaurus, of which it seems to have been a southern offshoot. Unusually for a sauropod, Atlasaurus is represented by a single, near-complete fossil specimen, including a good portion of the skull. This dinosaur thrived in the Middle Jurassic period around 165 million years ago.
