Brontosaurus is a sauropod dinosaur from the Jurassic period of North America. It was originally a Chimera between Apatosaurus and Camarasaurus with the type species Brontosaurus excelsus being reclassified as a species of Apatosaurus called Apatosaurus excelsus. However, an extensive study published in 2015 by a joint research team of United Kingdom and Portugal concluded that Brontosaurus was a valid genus of sauropod distinct from Apatosaurus, resurrecting the genus.

StoryEdit

Brontosaurus does not appear in the storyline of the movie canon, but it is mentioned by Tim Murphy who misidentifies Jurassic Park's Brachiosaurus as Brontosaurus.[1]

StoryEdit

At the time of the major events in the novel canon, Brontosaurus was still a synonym of Apatosaurus and was just used as a nick name for said sauropod.[2][3]

Jurassic Park: BuilderEdit

see Brontosaurus/Builder

Brontosaurus can be created in Jurassic Park: Builder though it requires dino-dollars purchase. Its appearance in the game is odd because when the game was made Brontosaurus was synonymous with Apatosaurus.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Much like Tim, fans have confused Brachiosaurus in the first film for Brontosaurus.
