Diplodocus carnegii
Diplodocus carnegii is a species of sauropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Jurassic period, approximately 150 million years ago.

Diplodocus carnegii was a large dinosaur, reaching impressive lengths. It is estimated to have been around 27 meters long, with an extremely long neck and tail. Its body was relatively thin and elongated, supported by robust legs and distinctive spines.

The most notable characteristic of Diplodocus carnegii is its long and flexible neck, which allowed it to reach tall vegetation and tree leaves. It is believed to have around 15 vertebrae in its neck, giving it an elegant and distinctive appearance. Despite its length, its neck was surprisingly light due to the presence of air cavities within the vertebrae.

The tail of Diplodocus carnegii was also remarkably long and was estimated to have been approximately 15 meters long. The tail was made up of a series of vertebrae and was terminated by a flexible whip, which it probably used to defend itself from predators or communicate with other individuals of its species.

Its head was small compared to the size of its body, with simple, flattened teeth that allowed it to tear out vegetation.

The skin of Diplodocus carnegii is unknown due to a lack of fossil evidence, but it is speculated that it was covered in scales or a type of rough skin.
