Description

Brachiosaurus is one of the most well-known dinosaurs to the public by virtue of its massive size. This makes it a popular attraction for Jurassic World visitors. Its name is derived from the incredible height of its humerus.They are believed to have fed from the upper reaches of tall trees. They are known to be warm blooded.

Discovery

Elmer S. Riggs first described the Brachiosaurus from fossils he found near Fruita in Morrison Formation. An earlier fossil had been found near Garden Park, Colorado, but had not been identified as a new type. Since then fossils from around North America have been found.

Paleoecology

The fossil sites indicate that Brachiosaurus lived in a semi-arid landscape with defined wet and dry seasons. There were floodplains, gallery forests and fern savannahs with Araucaria trees.
