It is still technically Friday! I was a little busy today and as such I am drawing on the midnight hour to post. This week we are going to discuss Omeisaurus (Omei lizard), a sauropod from the Middle Jurassic of China. This sauropod has a uniquely long neck for its body and is actually quite an old find despite the relatively new sound of its name to many dinosaur fans. Omeisaurus was described in 1939 and is a rather odd collection of 7 total species. Be ready in the days to come for some interesting and bizarre images of this interesting dinosaur!
