Rebbachisaurus was a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived in the Early Cretaceous of Morocco. It was discovered in 1954 by René Lavocat and consisted of ten ribs, the right scapula, eleven vertebrae, the sacrum, a humerus and two bones in the Aufo Formation at Gara Sba, Errachidia in Morocco.

Rebbachisaurus had a tall neural spine of vertebrae that stood proudly from the back or supported a sail or hump that ran along the spine. It had a large build, a long neck and a whip-like tail. Its long neck was used to navigate tall trees. It walked on four strong legs, and like other dinosaurs, Rebbachisaurus reproduced by laying eggs.

Recently, it was estimated to be 26 meters long and weigh 40 tons by Molina-Pérez and Larramendi.
