Bellusaurus ("beautiful lizard") was a small short-necked sauropod dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic which measured about 4.8 metres (16 ft) long. Its fossils were found in Shishugou Formation rocks in the northeastern Junggar Basin in China.

Discovery and species

The type (and only known) species is Bellusaurus sui, formally described by Dong Zhiming in 1990. Seventeen individuals were found in a single quarry, suggesting that a herd had been killed in a flash flood. Some features suggest they may have all been juveniles.

Bellusaurus is next to a Lambeosaurus on the left side.

In The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses, a Bellusaurus is briefly seen standing next to a Lambeosaurus after the tree sweets regrow. As it seems to be a larger model of the series' Mussaurus, it is likely the result of an animation error.
