Lufengosaurus huenei Saurischia Sauropodomorpha

Skeleton of Lufengosaurus
Lufengosaurus is one of the primitive sauropodomorphs (prosauropods) from China. It is relatively large among prosauropods. It has been argued whether the diet of prosauropods was carnivorous, herbivorous, or omnivorous. Because some skeletons have been found with stomach stones, prosauropods are considered to be herbivorous. Some skeletons have been discovered from the same locality.
