project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 068

SHUNOSAURUS LII
"Li Bing's Lizard of the Shu Empire"
Dong, Zhou, & Zhang, 1983
Length: 9.5m (31ft)
Weight: 3 tonnes (3.3 tons)
Location: Sichuan, China
Era: Bathonian age, middle Jurassic (166 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Sauropodomorpha
Plateosauria
Massopoda
Anchisauria
Sauropoda
Eusauropoda
Cetiosauridae

Notes:
While perhaps most famous for its tail club, this feature does not seem to be unique to Shunosaurus, as roughly similar structures are most likely present in species of Omeisaurus and Mamenchisaurus, which are also known from roughly the same time and place. Whether these three were particularly closely related or that the club was an environmentally driven convergence (if the club in the three are truly analogous and not just pathologies) are points of contention.
