The Lost Files- Apatosaurus by HodariNundu The Lost Files- Apatosaurus by HodariNundu
JURASSIC PARK Los Archivos Perdidos
Apatosaurus
Epoca: Jurasico tardio, hace 140 millones de años
Distribucion: Norteamerica
Longitud: 23 metros
Peso: Hasta 30 toneladas
Dieta: Herbivoro
Apatosaurus (o Brontosaurus) es uno de los mayores dinosaurios clonados en Jurassic Park. Tambien fue una de las especies de sauropodos que serian exhibidos en la gira del Parque.
Es un animal enorme y vistoso, que vive en manadas y suele encontrarse cerca de lagos y otras fuentes de agua. Se alimenta del follaje de arboles y tambien de vegetacion baja. Cada adulto necesita al menos media tonelada de alimento al dia.
No tienen una jerarquia definida, pero parece que los individuos mas viejos suelen hacer las veces de guias, y es a ellos a quienes sigue la manada en caso de peligro o cuando se trasladan en busca de alimento. Las manadas de Apatosaurus estan constantemente en movimiento lo cual evita que acaben con la vegetacion.
Los Apatosaurus suelen volverse muy activos en epoca de reproduccion; los machos suelen pararse sobre sus patas traseras y golpear el suelo con las delanteras para intimidar a sus rivales, y emiten fuertes bramidos que pueden escucharse a kilometros de distancia.
La principal arma de este dinosaurio es su cola semejante a un latigo, que puede mover mas rapido que la velocidad del sonido (de ahi los chasquidos que emite). Esta cola puede golpear con suficiente fuerza para quebrarle la espalda a un depredador, o incluso matarlo, por lo que solo los teropodos mas especializados, como Allosaurus y Carcharodontosaurus, suelen atacar a estos herbivoros.
La cola esta bandeada de blanco y negro para que resulte mas visible a sus enemigos y asi lo piensen dos veces antes de atacar.
TRIVIA: En Jurassic Park, los Apatosaurus vivian en semilibertad muy cerca del recinto del T-Rex. Segun notas de los cuidadores del parque, uno de los pasatiempos favoritos del T-Rex era observar a los Apatosaurus desde su recinto, "como un gato que observa a varios pajaros fuera de su alcance".

JURASSIC PARK The Lost Files
Apatosaurus
Age: Late Jurassic, 140 mya
Range: North America
Length: 23 meters
Weight: Up to 30 tons
DietÑ: Herbivore
Apatosaurus (or Brontosaurus) is one of the largest dinosaurs cloned in Jurassic Park. It was also one of the species of sauropods that were supossed to be exhibited in the park tour.
It is a huge, conspicuous animal that lives in herds and usually lives near lakes and other water sources. It feeds on tree foliage and also low vegetation. Each adult needs at least half a ton of food each day.
They don´t seem to have a defined hyerarchy, but it seems that the oldest individuals are the ones who guide the herd, and the others will follow them when moving away from danger or in their constant search for food. Apatosaurus herds move all the time, so that the vegetation doesn´t run out.
Apatosaurus becomes very active during mating season; males stand on their hind feet and slam their forelegs on the ground to impress rivals. They also produce loud calls that can be heard from miles.
Apatosaurus' main weapon is its whip-like tail, that can move at super-sonic speed (hence the snap). This tail is strong enough to break a predator's back or even kill it, so usually only the most specialized predators such as Allosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus dare to attack Apatosaurus.
The tail has black and white bands so that predators can see it clearly and think twice before attacking.
TRIVIA: In Jurassic Park, Apatosaurus roamed semi-free very close to the T-Rex enclosure. According to notes from keepers, one of the T-Rex's favorite hobbies was to watch the Apatosaurs "like a cat, watching some birds out of its reach".

I think Littlefoot & his grandparents from Land Before Time are all Apatosauruses
