Vulcanodon was a herbivore with a long neck, a long tail, thick legs, a large body and a small head. This type of dinosaurs used to have nail-like claws with a larger middle-finger claw. The front legs were relatively long.

Vulcanodons, just like other sauropods, most likely laid eggs, but didn’t care about them. This large and heavy reptile used to eat only plants – ferns, tree leaves, etc. They had to eat lots of these plants every day to keep sustenance.

Vulcanodons used to spend most of their time grazing.
