This magnet features the 55ft long Camarasaurus dinosaur on display at the Wonders Center and Science Museum out in the rotunda.
The name Camarasaurus means “chambered lizard” which is in reference to the hollow chambers in the cervical (neck) vertebrae. Four species of Camarasurus have been identified with adult sizes of ranging from 49 feet to 95 feet long. A maximum weight is estimated to be slightly over 100,000 pounds.
With parts of more than 500 specimens found so far, the Camarasaurus is the most common of the sauropod dinosaurs found in the Morrison Formation of the Western United States with discoveries in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. One of the best discoveries of a Camarasaurus fossil was at Howe Quarry Wyoming of a near complete skeleton with skin impressions on the skull and a hind leg.
