CAMPTOSAURUS DISPAR
"Different Flexible Lizard"
Marsh, 1885 (Originally Camptonotus Marsh, 1879)
Length: 7.9m (26ft)

Notes:
Most older depictions as well as most mounted skeletons of Camptosaurus depict it with an incorrect head that is much too rectangular in profile. It is now known that Camptosaurus skulls had a more triangular profile, and the original referred skull has been given its own genus, Theiophytalia.

Camptosaurus nanus Marsh, 1894
Camptosaurus browni Gilmore, 1909
