Inaccurate paleoart.jpg Note: This historical image is not a factually accurate dinosaur restoration.

Reason: The idea that Apatosaurus was wholly or mostly aquatic is now considered outdated. Tail dragging and Camarasaurus-like skull are also inaccurate.
You may ask further questions about the accuracy of this image at the image review page of WikiProject Dinosaurs on the English Wikipedia. Note that this image may be appropriate to illustrate obsolete paleontological views.
