Diplodocus was a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaurs, whose fossils were first discovered in 1877 by S. W. Williston and lived in mid-western North America, at the end of the Jurassic period about 161 to 146 million years ago. Among the best-known sauropods, Diplodocus were very large, long-necked, quadrupedal animals, with long, whip-like tails composed of about 80 caudal vertebrae. Their forelimbs were slightly shorter than their hind limbs, resulting in a largely horizontal posture. The skull of Diplodocus was unusually small and rather light and the body was comparatively light and was well supported by limb girdles and pillarlike legs. While most of these dinosaurs weighed slightly more than 30 tons, some members of the genus may have weighed as much as 80 tons.
