Brachiosaurus altithorax

75 feet long and standing up to 45 feet tall, Brachiosaurus had a stance that elevated its head higher than any other land animal. Living at a time when sauropods were at their greatest size, abundance, and diversity, Brachiosaurus evolved this posture and long neck as a means to access vegetation its contemporary counterparts could not. This remarkable specimen is the famous Brachiosaurus skeleton that is on display at the Field Museum in Chicago, and at O’Hare Airport.
