Lapparentosaurus is a sauropod, potentially a macronarian, from the Majunga Basin, Isalo III Formation, Madagascar. It is known from partial remains from several indviduals of various sizes. It was about 15 meters long and 6 meters tall, and lived in the Bathonian age of the Middle Jurassic, anywhere between 168 and 166 million years ago. It seems as though it took 31 to 45 years to reach sexual maturity, and was relatively fast growing. Though there are quite a few remains have been found, there really isn’t a detailed description of it yet.
