Bajadasaurus

“What will happen if you cross a Brachiosaurus with a Hedgehog?”
Owen Grady

Bajadasaurus is a genus of herbivorous dinosaur that belongs to the family Dicraeosauridae. It lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 70 million years ago. The fossils of Bajadasaurus were discovered in the Bajada Colorada Formation in Argentina and hence the name of the dinosaur.

Bajadasaurus was a relatively small dinosaur, with an estimated length of around 6 to 7 meters (20 to 23 feet). One of the most distinctive features of Bajadasaurus is the presence of long, forward-curving spines along its neck. These spines were elongated neural spines, extensions of the vertebrae, and were covered by keratin sheaths in life, similar to the ossicones of modern giraffes.

The long neck spines of Bajadasaurus were unique among sauropodomorph dinosaurs. They measured about 1.5 meters (4.9 feet) in length. The function of these spines is not entirely clear, but they may have played a role in display, species recognition, or defense.
