Riojasaurus was one of the earliest of the large, plant-eating dinosaurs. Riojasaurus lived during the late Triassic period, roughly 225 to 219 million years ago.

It had a long neck, a long tail, a small head, a long, bulky body, and thick, elephant-like legs with claws. The back legs were only slightly larger than the front legs. Its limb bones were solid and thick, but its backbone was hollow. It had spoon-shaped, serrated teeth.

Name: Riojasaurus was named by the paleontologist José F. Bonaparte in 1969 . The type species is R. incertus.
