The name Brachiosaurus comes from the Greek words “arm” and “lizard,” referring to the fact that this dinosaur’s front legs were longer than its back ones. A contemporary of Stegosaurus in the late Jurassic period, this towering sauropod could reach up to 65 feet long, weigh over 60 tons, and could reach the high branches of 30-foot-tall trees.
