Turiasaurus riodevensis
Turiasaurus riodevensis is the only known species of the extinct Turiasaurus genus of turiasaurian sauropod dinosaur, it is one of the largest known sauropods, a giant that inhabited the Earth during the Jurassic period approximately 155 to 146 million years ago, from the Kimmeridgian to the Tithonian , in what is now Europe and more specifically in what is now the region of Teruel, Spain.

Discovered in 2003, this dinosaur is one of the most important finds in Spanish paleontology and has provided valuable information on the diversity and evolution of sauropod dinosaurs.

With an estimated length of more than 30 meters and a weight of up to 45 tons, Turiasaurus was a true titan among dinosaurs. Its physical appearance was characterized by a long, robust neck and tail, a massive body, and columnar limbs. It is believed that his posture was quadrupedal, with his front limbs slightly shorter than his hind limbs, which allowed him to support his great weight.

The skull of Turiasaurus was relatively small compared to its body size and featured simple, conical teeth, adapted to tearing out fibrous vegetation. Despite its imposing size, this sauropod was a peaceful herbivore that fed mainly on plants, using its long neck to reach the highest leaves and branches of trees.

The discovery of fossil remains of Turiasaurus has allowed scientists to reconstruct its skeleton and better understand its anatomy and way of life. It is believed that this dinosaur lived in forested and floodplain environments, where it could find abundant vegetation to feed on and water to quench its thirst.
