This quadrupedal plant-eater had a whip-like tail, a long neck, a small head, clawed hind legs, a high-arched back, and a bulky body. It may have had a sail on its back.
Rebbachisaurus is distinguished from other sauropods by its unusually tall, ridged back.
The discovery of Rayososaurus, a South American sauropod nearly identical to Rebbachisaurus, supports the theory that there was still a land connection between Africa and South America during the Early Cretaceous, long after it was commonly thought the two continents had separated.
Rebbachisaurus was about 68 ft (20 m) long.
The type species is R. garasbae.
Rebbachisaurus was named by Lavocat in 1954.
Fossils have been found in Morocco and Niger, Africa.
