Barosaurus was a large sauropod from the Cretaceous that lived in Africa.[1] This species was presented in the sticker album of Walking with Dinosaurs

       

In reality

Barosaurus actually lived in the Late Jurassic, not the Cretaceous. Furthermore, fossil finds in Africa that were attributed to Barosaurus have since been reassigned to its own genus called Tornieria. The only species accepted by the scientific community is Barosaurus lentus, discribed by Othniel Charles Marsh in 1890.
