Bio: One of the largest animals ever to walk the Earth. It was a species of sauropod, a group of large long necked dinosaurs. Brachiosaurus is well known for having a different body shape than many other sauropod species. Instead of larger back legs, Brachiosaurus had a larger front pair of legs, hence the meaning of its name "arm lizard".
Role in Jurassic Park: Brachiosaurus is first seen toward the beginning of the first movie in what many say is the most awe-inspiring scene in the entire franchise. Later in the movie, a herd are seen while Alan, Lex, and Tim are in a tree the night of the incident. The next morning, one is eating leaves from the tree, and sneezes on Lex. In Jurassic Park 3, they are first seen from the airplane during the Isla Sorna fly-by scene grazing on trees below in a large plain alongside other herbivorous dinosaurs. They are seen once again by Grant and co. when their boat passes another large field.
