The Colossal Brachiosaurus! It’s name means ‘Arm Lizard’, this is due to its longer front legs- which was unusual for Sauropods when it was first discovered.
It was long believed that sauropods like this were semi-aquatic as their huge bodies had to be supported by water to sustain its weight.... which of course isn’t true. Sauropods has large air pockets within the stomachs which would of made them too buoyant.... so they would of just been bobbing around uncontrollably. #Dinosaur
Something I find incredibly interesting is that Sauropods, just like Brachiosaurus, were supposedly gigantotherms. This means that due to their size, they would be warm blooded ! Amazing !
