This was a late Jurassic sauropodomorph dinosaur. Its large powerful hands suggest it was possibly an opportunistic omnivore, and though it probably wouldn’t have killed any large prey, it could have used its claws to tear apart carcasses or dig into small animal burrows. The most obvious use for its hands would have been digging up roots or pulling down branches.

Sarahsaurus is the third basal sauropodomorph dinosaur to have been found in North America.


Packing up my apartment really just gives me opportunities to play dress up… and also to hate myself. Sometimes my dinosaur obsession goes a little too far. In fairness, I was 17 when I got this. #sarahsaurus #saurus #thelamest #dinosaurs (at You Ate My Enchilada)
