Brachiosaurus was a large herbivorous sauropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Jurassic Period (155-150 million years ago) in what is now western North America. While the adults were giant and imposing, this Brachiosaurus Baby toy is downright cute! History: Brachiosaurus is a rare dinosaur, and none of the known skeletons are complete. We knew nothing about the juveniles until recently, when a small skeleton, about 6 feet long, was found in Wyoming. This sounds big, but when you consider that an adult was about 85 feet long, you can see that this would have been a very young animal when it died. The skeleton shows very clearly the short neck and front leg characteristic of the juvenile Brachiosaurus.

Characteristics: Brachiosaurus had a small head, long neck and tail, and a huge, barrel-shaped body. Like all sauropod dinosaurs, they walked on all fours, but unique to sauropods, the front legs were longer, not shorter, than the hind legs.
