Scientists find dinosaur bones in rock. They carefully fit the bones together. If they find enough bones, they can make a full skeleton. Scientists can see what the dinosaur looked like from its skeleton.

Diplodocus had a long neck and tail. This artist’s drawing shows what the dinosaur might have looked like while walking through a forest. How could a long neck and tail have helped Diplodocus? How might they have gotten in the way?
