Dinosaurs continue to captivate the minds of people of all ages, with their massive size and incredible diversity.

These gentle giants were known for their long necks, massive bodies, and incredible length, with some species reaching lengths of up to 34 meters (112 feet) and weighing over 70 tons. In this article, we will take a closer look at the top 10 longest sauropods that ever lived. From the well-known Apatosaurus to the lesser-known Mamenchisaurus, we will delve into the anatomy, habitat, and characteristics of these incredible dinosaurs. So sit back, relax, and get ready to meet some of the longest and most fascinating creatures to have ever lived.

Currently, the first place on the podium takes Amficelias (Amphicoelias) – the type of sauropod belonging to the family Diplodocoidea. Its name is composed of the Greek words amphi – both sides and koilos – concave and – means “double-concave”. There were three species of Amficelias – A. fragillimus, A. altus and A. latus. A. fragillimus – Amficelias fragillimus could be the biggest beast of all time. Its size normally falls in the range 40-60 m in length with a weight of up to 120 tonnes.
