About Brachiosaurus

Brachiosaurus is the largest and heaviest land animal ever discovered. This massive animal was different from other large plant-eating Sauropods in a few key ways. Firstly, Brachiosaurus had longer forelegs than hind legs. This gave Brachiosaurus a larger than average profile. Second, Brachiosaurus also had a ridge along the top of its head. Brachiosaurus had spoon-shaped teeth that it used to eat its leafy diet. It is estimated that this dinosaur needed to eat about 500 lb. (227kg) of food (leaves) every day to survive.
