Asylosaurus yalensis was a species of sauropodomorph dinosaur that belonged to the Asylosaurus genus. The literal meaning of the name is sanctuary lizard.
The phonetic pronunciation of Asylosaurus is 'A-sil-o-sore-us', and the meaning of the name is 'sanctuary lizard'.
Asylosaurus yalensis was a type species of sauropodomorph that belonged to the genus of Asylosaurus.
Asylosaurus roamed the Earth during the upper Triassic period, mainly around 208.5 million years ago.
It's not known when exactly Asylosaurus became extinct. However, they lived during the Rhaetian age, so they probably went extinct around 201 million years ago in the Triassic–Jurassic mass extinction event when the Triassic period ended.
The only Asylosaurus specimen that scientists found to date has been discovered from southwest England, so Asylosaurus probably lived in England.
The upper Triassic period Asylosaurus were terrestrial dinosaurs, so they lived on land, mainly in caves.
It's not known whether Asylosaurus lived in groups. However, scientists consider that sauropods, in general, lived in same-age or mixed-age groups.
It's not known how long Asylosaurus lived, but large sauropods, in general, lived for around 70-80 years.
Asylosaurus were oviparous, and it means that they laid eggs to give birth to their young ones.
Asylosaurus yalensis had a relatively smaller body than other sauropods, but they still had a large body with a long neck and a long tail. They had long hindlimbs and short forelimbs, which means that they were bipedal in nature.
The exact number of bones these dinosaurs had is not known.
It can only be assumed that these dinosaurs communicated through visual displays and by making sounds like many other dinosaurs.
Asylosaurus used to be around 6.6 ft (2 m) in length.
Asylosaurus were bipedal, which means that they could run at a faster pace than many other sauropods.
The average weight of an Asylosaurus was assumed to be around 55 lb (25 kg).
Males and females of this species have no specific names.
A baby Asylosaurus is called a juvenile.
It's not known whether Asylosaurus was aggressive or not. We can only assume that they probably became aggressive when they were in danger.
The species Asylosaurus yalensis from their genus Asylosaurus was described by scientists from a partial skeleton of the dinosaur's torso region that they found in England. This partial skeleton included a hand, humeri (upper arm), gastralia, back vertebrae, a partial forearm, a shoulder girdle, ribs, and some additional bones.
The partial remains of the Asylosaurus were discovered in 1834. Then those partial remains were moved to Yale University around 1888-1890. These remains miraculously escaped destruction from a bomb explosion during Second World War in 1940.
