Brachiosaurus was one of the tallest long-necked dinosaurs. This ground shaking herbivore occupied North America during the Late Jurassic, about 153 million years ago.
- Scientific Name: Brachiosaurus altithorax
- Characteristics: Brachiosaurus was a long-necked plant eater with a tiny skull relative to the size of its giant body. It had simple peg-like teeth for stripping leaves, a long neck, and a medium-sized tail. Brachiosaurus walked on all fours but its front legs were longer than its hind legs, so it had a backwards-sloping back. Its front feet had a single claw on the thumb, while its strong hind feet had five toes. It probably exceeded 80 feet long.
- Size and Color: This large model is 9 inches long and 8 inches high. Its skin is a fetching grassy green that is slightly darker on top and lighter below.
