Amygdalodon was a plant-eating giant from South America.
It was one of the earlier South American long-necked dinosaurs, and
it lived many millions of years before the huge titanosaurs evolved.
Since most of the fossils of the very first dinosaurs came from South
America, it is possible that Amygdalodon's ancestors were the early
prosauropods from that area.
Amygdalodon is classified as belonging to the same family as
Cetiosaurus based on its teeth and some other skeletal
similarities. Known from only a few bones and teeth, there is much still
to be discovered about this genus.
