What kind of animal is Abydosaurus?
Abydosaurus is a type of dinosaur that lived about 105 million years ago in what is now Utah, USA.
It belonged to the group of sauropods, which were huge, long-necked, plant-eating dinosaurs.
Abydosaurus is one of the few sauropods known from skull material, which is rare because their skulls were very fragile and often fell apart after death.
Abydosaurus had a head and neck similar to Brachiosaurus, but with narrower and sharper teeth that it replaced frequently.
Abydosaurus did not chew its food, but just grabbed it and swallowed it whole.
Abydosaurus was named after an ancient Egyptian city where the head and neck of the god Osiris were buried, because the first fossils found were a head and neck.
Abydosaurus was about 18 meters (60 feet) long and weighed about 25 tons.
It had four legs, a long tail, and a small nose on top of its head.
Abydosaurus was discovered in 2010 by a team of paleontologists led by Daniel Chure from Dinosaur National Monument.
Abydosaurus is currently on display at BYU's Museum of Paleontology.
