Zizhongosaurus was a small long-necked plant eater that lived in China. It is considered to be a relative of Barapasaurus  a similar dinosaur that lived in India. Zizhongosaurus lived at a time when the long-necked, or sauropod, dinosaurs were just beginning to get really large. It may have been an ancestor to many of the Chinese sauropods that evolved later.

Not much is known about Zizhongosaurus. It is known from only a few bones.
