Marcel Delgado, absolutely correct. But I believe that the sauropod in
_The Lost World_ (1925) was a _Brontosaurus_ (a legendary creature with the
body of _Apatosaurus_ and the head of _Camarasaurus_). That is how it
appears to me, and how it is named in the references I have. If you can
provide references that disagree with this classification, please do.
