Supersaurus is a member of the sauropod family that includes Diplodocus was one of the largest plant-eaters of all time. At 33 meters long, it was almost as long as four school buses, and its neck alone was 40 feet long. Supersaurus is known from only a few bones, but these bones are enormous. The first bone found, a scapulacoracoid (shoulder bone) was over eight feet (2.4 meters) long. James Jensen, one of North America's most prolific dinosaur hunters, discovered this creature in 1973 and excavated it in 1979. Bones that were originally assigned to Ultrasaurus have now been identified as being from Supersaurus.[1]
