The shortest sauropods – Top 10

The smallest sauropods – Top 10

The sauropods were herbivorous (plant-eating) dinosaurs. They were best known because of their their size. Even the dwarf sauropods like Europasaurus (probably 5-6 meters (20 ft) long) were counted among the largest animals on our planet. Their only real competitors in terms of size are whales, such as the blue whale. But, unlike whales, sauropods were primarily land-based animals.

Below there is a list of smallest sauropods – all sauropods measuring 9 m (30 ft) or less in length.
