    Dicraeosaurus, a dinosaur of East Africa

     

    Dicraeosaurus had a special feature: a relatively short neck counting only twelve vertebrae. As its cousin Diplodocus, its forelimbs are shorter than its hindlimbs. It lived at the same time as Brachiosaurus and Kentrosaurus, with which it lived in the tropical alluvial plains of East Africa.
