Sellosaurus is the name given to a genus of prosauropod dinosaur that lived in Triassic Europe, 225 mya. Like other prosauropods, it had a thumb claw it may have used to defend itself, and reach for food.
Sellosaurus is one of the more well-known prosauropods. Over twenty skeletons have been discovered. These fossils comprise what is believed to be at least three separate species. The dinosaur Efraasia, a prosauropod from the same location, was long thought to be the same as Sellosaurus, but this has been recently disproved.
