Daanosaurus was a genus of dinosaur. It was a brachiosaurid sauropod which lived during the Late Jurassic (Oxfordian - Tithonian stage, about 163 - 145 mya). It lived in what is now China (Sichuan Province), and was similar to Bellusaurus.

The type species, described in 2005, is Daanosaurus zhangi.[1] Adult size is unknown due to lack of fossil remains.
