Brachiosaurus was one of the tallest and largest dinosaurs yet found. It had a long neck, small head, and relatively short, thick tail.Brachiosaurus was an herbivore, a plant eater. It probably ate the tops of tall trees with its large spatulate (chisel-shaped) teeth.Brachiosaurus probably travelled in herds and may have migrated when they depleted their local food supply.Its' best defense was size. In addition, its long tail could whip away most attackers. Sauropod life spans may have been in the order of 100 years.
