Apatosaurus (up-ato-soar-uhs) (deceptive lizard) is a sauropod that lived in North America during the Late Jurassic period, Apatosaurus was large being 16 feet tall and 69-75 feet long although being this size it still had predators such as the Allosaurus. Multiple footprints from this genus have been found. These footprints are usually found alongside each other, making it likely that Apatosaurus lived in herds. Juvenile sauropod tracks also indicate that they may have stood up to run, which is reflected in the game with juvenile Apatosaurus being bipedal.
The in-game Apatosaurus has a gray torso and tail with black stripes with a lighter gray neck with yellow marking and a black and red head. It also has small spikes running down the bottom of its neck. Most players didn't use the Apatosaurus until it was remodeled and buffed, now you can usually see two or three on a server. The Apatosaurus is extremely strong. It has a wide range because of its long neck and it has a small hitbox.
Apatosaurus is extremely deadly to face against due to it being not just a tank but a ranger with a powerful attack. Here are some things to know before engaging anyone with Apatosaurus. Do not charge head-on against something like a Mammoth. If you want to get the best outcome of the fight, enable shift lock and charge sideways. Use the meaning of your name to deceive the enemy into coming close. The opponent will most likely not have enough time to calculate the distance to be in. This makes Apatosaurus one of the strongest dinosaurs in the game. Avoid fighting the counters to Apatosaurus. These include Diamond/Rainbow Eotriceratops, Riot Shield and Diamond/Rainbow Triceratops, Puertasaurus, Camarasaurus, and Movie Brachiosaurus.

The old model for Apatosaurus. It is not commonly played as due to it's stats and blocky and old model before its buff and remodel.
The Apatosaurus is a large, dark gray dinosaur with a long tail that starts out thick but gradually thins out, a long, thick neck, with a short, stubby snout, short, thick legs with blunt claws, and small, beady black eyes.
The Forest Guardian Apatosaurus also called the "Forest Guardian" or "Forest" is a skin for the Apatosaurus. This skin got remodeled by The_BladeNinja along with some other remodels.
The Forest Guardian is a pale mud green Apatosaurus with spikes and some small wings, although it cannot fly at all. It is textured like a forest, with many spines along its back, neck, and end of its tail. It's small wings are forest dark green in color, it has bright green eyes and a red mouth.
- The Forest Guardian is missing a "U" in Apatosaurus.

To be added.
Arlo is based on the Apatosaurus of the same name in the movie The Good Dinosaur. It was obtainable during the 'The Good Dinosaur' event in a cave along with the Forrest Woodbush skin. Similar to the Forest Guardian Apatosaurus he too, gains an extra amount of Speed from 13 to 17. It also decreases in damage by Damage -15, and health by Health -105. In Dinosaur Simulator, this film-star is one of the rarest skins in the game. Only a few players have it, and this is because the skin is untradeable.
It looks exactly like Arlo from the The Good Dinosaur. It is bright green in color. With large white toes and large brown eyes.
- The Arlo skin was released as part of a promotional event for the film The Good Dinosaur
- Like many other blocky models, this suffers from the inability to climb, or even go down, as it slows significantly. This is especially apparent with large, blocky sauropod models such as Arlo.
"BAM BAM! 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!"
The Plush Apatosaurus was a skin released during the 2017 DS Birthday Event. With that being said the Apatosaurus Plush is not a very rare limited item due to the number of players who were able to buy it when it was resold during Black Friday 2017. This dinosaur stands out from the other plushies, due to being unobtainable through the Plush Egg. The demand is moderately high trading-wise, but there are many other dinosaurs with far higher demand.
The Apatosaurus Plush is an Apatosaurus Plush with ChickenEngineer riding it, sporting the usual hard hat and wrench. It is grayish-blue in color, with large black eyes. It barely has any animations and is surprisingly large for a plushie.
- It went on sale during the 2017 Black Friday Event, costing DNA Icon 1040, more than its original price of DNA Icon 100.
- This skin is NOT part of the Plush Egg Collection.
