091--BRACHIOSAURUS ALTITHORAX by Green-Mamba 091--BRACHIOSAURUS ALTITHORAX by Green-Mamba
project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 091

BRACHIOSAURUS ALTITHORAX
"High Chested Arm Lizard"
Riggs, 1903
Length: 26m (85ft)
Weight: 28.7 tonnes (31.6 tons)
Location: Colorado, USA
Era: Kimmeridgian age, upper Jurassic (154 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Sauropodomorpha
Plateosauria
Massopoda
Anchisauria
Sauropoda
Neosauropoda
Macronaria
Titanosauriformes
Brachiosauridae

Notes:
Despite its popularity, Brachiosaurus is actually a comparatively rare animal, the most complete specimen belonging to a subadult. For this reason, most popular reconstructions of it have been traditionally based on the much more complete African species, but that is no longer considered to belong to the Brachiosaurus genus, having since been assigned to a new genus, Giraffatitan.

I really like how Brachiosaurus looks here, and how it's shown with the neck positioned how I'd imagine brachiosaurids (or whatever the family Brachiosaurus and their relatives belong to is called) have the neck positioned. Most other depictions have it a little too vertical, in my opinion. Your Sauroposeidon, Euhelopus, and Opisthocoelicaudia kinda follow the "overly vertical neck" thing, though...

i actually don't have much of an opinion on the matter either way, i mostly went with what looked distinct and not completely unreasonable.

Ah. Okay. Thanks! I didn't really want you to go through updating those guys because of the neck, though. Must be kinda annoying... :P

Love the design, just not a big fan of the colour. Not saying its the wrong colour, just not how I think it would be coloured.
