Video gamesEdit


Barosaurus from Jurassic Park III: Park Builder.

Barosaurus is number 56 of the Herbivore Threes that can be created in the game Jurassic Park III: Park Builder.

The Barosaurus in Jurassic Park III:Park Builder, was actually a Tornieria africana.[citation needed] Tornieria was originally misclassified as a Barosaurus africanus.


  • The Barosaurus used in Jurassic Park III: Park Builder are inaccurately shown with their necks held up high, as recent studies show the giant sauropod lacked vertical flexibility in its neck.
