Brachiosaurus Dinosaur - Original illustration by Bob Orsillo / http://orsillo.com
Brachiosaurus Dinosaur whole body, side view. The Brachiosaurus is a genus of the sauropod dinosaur. Fossils were first described by Elmer Riggs in 1903 from fossils found in the Grand River Canyon (now the Colorado River) of western Colorado. Riggs named the dinosaur Brachiosaurus altithorax, declaring it "the largest known dinosaur". A proportionally long neck, small skull, and large overall size, makes it typical of sauropods. However, the proportions of Brachiosaurus are unlike most sauropods. With forelimbs longer than the hind limbs resulting in a steeply inclined trunk, the overall body shape was reminiscent of a modern giraffe. Also, while the tail is a typical long dinosaur tail, it was relatively short for a sauropod.
