Ohmdenosaurus belongs to the early period of Jurassic Germany. These are known genus of Sauropods. It is an herbivorous dinosaur and very small in size and lived in Germany, Posidonia Shale.
The size of Ohmdenosaurus is 13.1 Feet (4 meters) and the weight is around 500lbs. The fossils represent partial limbs and were found in marine deposit. Ohmdenosaurus has a right Tibia (two bones below the knee) and it also has an astragalus (large genus of herbs and shrubs) which is fourteen centimeter wide and in the shape of a sandal and it doesn't have a convex on top as derived in Clad of Sauropods (Neosauropods).
Ohmdenosaurus also has a calcaneus (heel bone) and tibia is only 405 millimeters long which indicates a small individual for a sauropod. The Single physical illustration of an organism (holotype) in Ohmdenosaurus lacks an inventory number which was found in Posidonia Shale (Lower Jurassic Park for Skeletons of fossils marine fish and reptiles)the time periods for the remains of Ohmdenosaurus that were deposited in has been indicated in the Toarcian of the Jurassic.
Ohmdenosaurus was classified in the Vulcanodontidae (Group of Sauropods) by John Stanton MC Intosh in the year 1990. Eventually, the concept of classifying the Ohmdenosaurus in Vulcanodontidae proved to be as a waste-basket taxon for unrelated basal Sauropods. There isn't any exact analysis to prove volcanodontidae in the modern sense. Ohmdenosaurus are classified as Chordata, Reptilia, Dinosauria, Saurischia, Sauropodomorpha, Sauropoda, and Vulcanodontidae.
These groups have been a little difficult in its classification in the past because of very little remains and genus type. In the year 2004, the description of Tazoudasaurus (type of sauropod) there was some clarity in the classification of Ohmdenosaurus.Ohmdenosaurus are Herbivorous as far as their diet is concerned. They were plant-eaters; the fossils of Ohmdenosaurus proved this fact clearly.
