Fossil remains for this Dinosaur have been found in Asia

Quaesitosaurus was a very large plant-eating, long-necked dinosaur from Asia. Since only part of the skull has been found, very little is known about exactly how big this animal was, or exactly what it looked like.

With such little fossil material with which to work, there has been a great deal of speculation about Quaesitosaurus. It has been variously classified under two different families - diplodocids and titanosaurs. Some scientists believe that its mouth design suggests that it ate mostly soft water plants and have even suggested the animal itself would have lived in the water a great deal of the time.
