Description

Brachiosaurus is a genus of herbivorous sauropod and one of the largest dinosaurs to have lived, weighing in at over 50 tons. Thanks to its long neck, Brachiosaurus can feed on leaves from trees up to 12 meters high, eating up to 400kg of vegetation every day, while its vast size means any potential predators tend to steer clear.

Discovery

The first Brachiosaurus fossils were uncovered in 1900 in the Morrison Formation, Colorado, and credited to Elmer S. Riggs, a celebrated American paleontologist. At the time, Brachiosaurus was considered to be the biggest dinosaur ever to have existed, although larger specimens have been discovered since.

Paleoecology

The location of fossils found dates Brachiosaurus to the Late Jurassic period, around 140-150m years ago, and co-existed with many other dinosaurs including the notorious Allosaurus and Ceratosaurus. While Brachiosaurus mainly lived in the western United States, remains have been found as far away as Portugal and Tanzania.
