Featured on The Paleo King [link] and SV-POW [link] - it's the Big Bad Brachiosaur Parade!

The fourteen best-known brachiosaur genera as of mid-2009 (before Abydosaurus and Qiaowanlong were described - sheesh, I wish they'd been discovered and described a few months earlier!). All brachiosaurs drawn to scale with the largest known T. rex specimen (MOR 008, not Sue) and labeled for easy reference 8-)

Here's the lineup:

Volkheimeria
Lapparentosaurus
Daanosaurus
Bothriospondylus
Lusotitan
Brachiosaurus

"the Archbishop"
Pelorosaurus
Pleurocoelus
Cedarosaurus
Sonorasaurus
Sauroposeidon
Breviparopus
Europasaurus



The footprints at the bottom are those of Pleurocoelus and Breviparopus.

--------------------------------------------------

Note: The "Brachiosaurus" shown here was B. brancai, which is now formally known as Giraffatitan (though the alternate name has been used since 1988, first and foremost by Gregory Paul). However, the type species B. altithorax was of similar average size.

The entire sequence is roughly in order from the earliest brachiosaurs to the last, with the exception of the basal dwarf brachiosaur Europasaurus.

Does Alamosaurus count?
