Item DescriptionApatosaurus, also known by the popular but scientifically redundant synonym Brontosaurus, is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the Jurassic Period. It was one of the largest land animals that ever existed, with an average length of 23m (75ft) and a mass of at least 23 metric tons. The composite term Apatosaurus comes from the Greek names apate meaning "deception and sauros meaning "lizard"; thus, "deceptive lizard". Othniel Charles Marsh gave it this name because he regarded the chevron bones as similar to those of some mosasaurs, members of a group of prehistoric marine lizards.
This unassembled plastic model kit is rated as Skill Level 2, mid-point in the degree of difficulty. "Bronto" stands 3" high and over 10" long. Glue and paints are not included.
