Moabosaurus

moe-AB-oh-SAW-rus, “lizard from Moab” (city near where the fossils were found)

The skeleton of Moabosaurus was re-created from about 5,000 damaged fossil bones found in one region over a period of 30 years. The bones are from 18 or more juveniles. Scientists think that they may have died during a drought and that the bones were eaten by bugs and trampled before being fossilized.
