Where does the Haplocanthosaurus live?

Haplocanthosaurus was a genus of sauropod dinosaurs that lived in North America during the late Jurassic period, about 155 to 152 million years ago.
It is known from incomplete fossil skeletons that were found in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana.
Haplocanthosaurus was one of the most primitive sauropods in North America, and had simple spines on its vertebrae, unlike the more derived sauropods that had complex spines.
Haplocanthosaurus was a herbivorous dinosaur that probably fed on low-growing plants with its peg-like teeth.
It had a long neck and tail, and four pillar-like legs.
It was smaller than some other sauropods, reaching a length of about 21.5 meters and a weight of about 12.8 metric tons.
Haplocanthosaurus is currently classified as a member of the family Camarasauridae, which includes other sauropods such as Camarasaurus and Brachiosaurus.
However, its exact relationships within this group are still uncertain, and some studies have suggested that it may belong to a separate family, Haplocanthosauridae.
Haplocanthosaurus lived in a warm and humid environment, along with other dinosaurs such as Allosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Apatosaurus.
It may have formed herds for protection and migration, as some other sauropods did.
Haplocanthosaurus is one of the rarest sauropods in the fossil record, and only four specimens have been named so far.
More discoveries may reveal more details about this ancient and mysterious dinosaur.
