Diplodocus V2 (SciiFii).jpg

Diplodocus textis (name meaning "wattled double beam") is a species of giant sauropod part of the family of sauropods, Diplodocids. It originally lived during the Late Jurassic in what is now Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Montana, and was once extinct, but has been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and, unlike Sciifii's first Diplodocus species, has been introduced to the open woodlands and grasslands across North America to help boost biodiversity. Diplodocus textis is a herbivore like most advanced sauropods, feeding mainly on leaves of ferns, cyacads, horsetails, conifers, and among other evergreen trees, but can sometimes feed on fruits and nuts. It is one of the longest dinosaurs alive today, growing to be around 88.6 feet (27 meters) long and weigh as much as two bull African elephants. It is a social herd-dwelling animal, living in groups up to around 10-15 at a time in most cases, but can occasionally live in herds as much as around 50-75 if there's enough space and food for them. The females live in herds throughout almost all their lives, while males live in solitary lives, in a manner similar to elephants, and during mating seasons, males visit nearby herds and clash with other males until one backs down, that's when a winning male Diplodocus textis gets a right to mate with any of the herds' females. The conservation status of Diplodocus textis is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts and the animal's wide range.
