Amargasaurus cazaui

The Spiny Whiptail is a small sauropod from early Cretaceous South America. The spines on the back of the neck are clattered together for a sound display.


My first sauropod! Colouration based on the Blue Wildebeest.

Based on skeletal restoration by Scott Hartman.

How many spines did Amargasuarus have? Because from different restorations, I see 10-13 spines.
TheMorlock's avatar
Not sure the exact number but i know it had two rows of them.

WHAT THE HECK IS WITH THAT SKIN???!! It looks like a flipping spikey tumor!
I'm just kidding. But the dewlap as greatly exaggerated. 
TheMorlock's avatar
We don't know how big their dewlaps would be in real life.

The spikes functioning as a sound display... Very clever!
TheMorlock's avatar
Yeah, I got it from Wikipedia.

I can imagine it arching its neck backwards, clattering its scales, and turning its throat into a giant baloon...

Nice. :) I had more like an anole's dewlap in mind, but I guess a baloon works too.
