The Attitude of Diplodocus1

Nature volume 85, page 110 (24 November 1910) | Download Citation



SINCE Mr. Carnegie gave a plaster cast of the skeleton of Diplodocus to the British Museum in 1905, he has distributed other copies of this remarkable Dinosaur to the museums of Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and Bologna. A large part of an actual skeleton was also given by the late Mr. Morris K. Jessup to the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt. A widespread interest has thus been aroused in the gigantic Sauropodous Dinosauria, and there have been many discussions as' to their original form and mode of life.
