See the Europasaurus and many other dinosaurs at GIVSKUD ZOO.

Europasaurus

Europasaurus means “European lizard”.

Not all long-necked dinosaurs were huge! Europasaurus ‘only’ grew to a length of around 5 metres and weighed up to 1000 kg. It lived at a time when what we know as Europe today was a string of large and small islands. The creature’s small stature may have been caused by lack of access to an abundant supply of food.

 

Length: 4-5 m
Weight: 0,5-1t
Age: Late Jurassic (155-150 mio år siden)
Herbivore

 

DID YOU KNOW...

that one of Europasaurus’ closest relatives was Brachiosaurus? That dinosaur measured up to 23 metres in length and weighed approx. 35 tonnes.
