Camarasaurus was a large Jurassic sauropod, a saurischian dinosaur, belonging to the family Camarasauridae. It was one of the smallest of the sauropods, whose intelligence belonged to the lowest of the dinosaurs. Camarasaurus was a herbivore, that swallowed leaves whole and may have swallowed gastroliths. With its long neck it could eat the fresher materials at the top of the larger trees. Being a herd animal, the Camarasaurus was constantly bothered by predacious dinosaurs, one of which was the Allosaurus. Fossils of Camarasaurus have been found in groups, adult and young together. It is believed, that they may have cared for their young, and may have hatched from eggs. Camarasaurus was a long-necked, long-tailed dinosaurus, that subsided in moist tropical plains. Its name, meaning "chambered lizard", is derived from the holes in its vertebrae, that decrease its weight. It had a small head, lightly built skull, short face, big eyes and a blunt snout. Its teeth were long, thick, spoon-shaped and blunt cropping. It probably had a good sense of smell. Its tail and neck were shorter than most other sauropods. Camarasaurus probably walked slowly, on four thick legs with five-toed feet; the inner toe had a long, sharp claw. The front legs were a little bit shorter than its hind limbs. Camarasaurus is one of the few dinosaurs, whose fossilized young have been found.
Allosaurus was a theropod and it belongs to allosauridae family. It is often referred to as "the wolf of the Jurassic", because it was very widespread animal. The Allosaurus was the main meat eating dinosaur of the Jurassic and the greatest worry of the herbivorous dinosaurs of its group. Allosaurus was probably pack hunter, it traveled in small group to assist each other in attack on a larger animal, such as Apatosaurus. Allosaurus was an active hunter, it was not a scavenger. Its environment was open and dry, with patches of conifers, ferns and cycads. A nest of Allosaurus was found in Wyoming, USA, with remains of adults and very young individuals. The herbivore bones, found in the nest, indicate that Allosaurs may have brought food to their young. Allosaurus had a bony red crest above each eye, strong back and S-shaped neck; tail probably comprised more than half of the Allosaurus' total length. Its forelimbs with three long, hook-like claws (up to 10 inches/25 cm long) were quite short, but powerful. These were important for attacking and holding on to prey; Allosaurus may have used its arms to grapple with smaller animals. Its skull was quite small in relation to its body. Allosaurus is one of the most recognized of all predatory dinosaurs; there were found thousands of fossilized bones in North America. It received its name (meaning "lizard-hipped" or "other lizard") based on some small finds in 1877 and the first complete skeleton was unearthed in 1883 and 1884.
