Dos Atlasaurus adultos merodean por una zona de anidación mientras varias crías emergen del cascarón.
Atlasaurus fue un sauropodo del Jurásico medio, de extrañas proporciones y emparentado probablemente con los braquiosaurios.
Su torso y su cuello eran relativamente cortos y sus patas delanteras más largas que las traseras, de ahí su espalda inclinada como la de una hiena. :>

Two adult Atlasaurus hanging around a nesting zone, just as the babies hatch.
Atlasaurus was a Middle Jurassic sauropod, weirdly proportioned and possibly related to brachiosaurs.
Its body and neck were relatively short and its forelimbs longer than the hindlimbs, giving it a sloping back like a hyena. :>

Speculative.
The formation Atlasaurus was found in has crappy preservational conditions, so basically nothing has been found there except Jobaria and Afrovenator.

Never heard of these Dinosaurs. I'm guessing they lived in North America right?

Nice job by the way.
