Supersaurus was one of the largest and longest dinosaurs to have ever walked on the Earth. It's neck alone was 40 feet, as long as a school bus. Supersaurus could grow to a length of 30 – 34 m (100–112 ft) long or more and weighed 30 - 40 tonnes.

Fossils have been found in North America (Colorado and Wyoming).

I wonder if they were just over sized Diplodicus specimens. And weren't the South American Titanasaurs much bigger? Also could you do Ultrasaurus and Seismosaurus?if they are still valid that is.

They might be just over sized diplodocus specimens or maybe not. There are some other animals with similar case, i don't have much belief that all of them are different but i just did some images. Jack Horner believes that mistakes have been made in dinosaur classification. He thinks dinosaur fossils once thought of as separate species are in fact fossils of the same species at different stages of maturity. I think some of it is true. Of course the South American titanosaurs are bigger and also i wonder if few of those giants are the same species because their known locations are similar. There is nothing called as ultrasaurus anymore and as for seismosaurus, the name is no longer valid but the animal does exist as diplodocus hallorum. I did made it before, here it is..

When seismosaurus was first described, David Gillette calculated it may have been up to 52 m (171 ft) long and 113 tonnes. The estimated length was later revised downward to 33 – 33.5 m (108 – 110 ft) and it seems later on to 32 m (105 ft) based on findings that show that Gillette had originally misplaced vertebrae 12–19 as vertebrae 20–27. The nearly complete D.carnegii skeleton on which size estimates of D. hallorum are mainly based, also was found to have had its 13th tail vertebra come from another dinosaur, throwing off size estimates for D. hallorum even further. But in my image, it still remains in the 33.5 m (110 ft) length.

Supersaurus seems to have a shorter tail than diplodocus. I thought all diplodocids had very long tails.
