PostSubject: Brachiosaurus Althithorax   Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:25 pm

Brachiosaurus Althithorax

Height: 58 feet
Weight: 83 tons
Length: 91.6 feet
Male: Pale green and gray mottling with pale yellow striping covering all of their bodies. Head has a small crest which is usually dull red, but during the breeding season, the crest becomes vibrant male with small blackish red striping. Underbelly is yellowish white and the eye's are colored green, yellow or brown.
Young Male: Pale grayish green and gray mottling with beigish tan yellow striping covering all of their bodies. Eye's are green or brown, and the underbelly ranges from pale yellowish white to tan yellow.
Female: Light shades of amber yellow with dark brown, lethargic blotches and striping. Crest on the head is amberish-brown, and the underbelly is either amber yellowish brown to pale white with a mix of tan yellow. Eye's are either brown, yellow or green.
Young Female: Light yellow with brown, various blotches and striping. Crest is yellowish-brown, underbelly is pale yellow. Eye's are either brown, yellow or green.

Preferred Habitat: Open grasslands with some trees, preferrably with a water source nearby.
Diet: Brachiosaurus are not picky eaters, eating a variety of vegitation at different areas, from low to the ground to high up in the trees.
Family: Brachiosauridae
Social Structure: Females are more social than males, as females usually live in groups with up to 11 individuals. Like the Velciraptor's, the group is led by an alpha female or alpha pair. Males, on the other hand, tend to live in smaller groups with up to 8 individuals, often led by an alpha male.
Description: Extremely large, quadrupedal and possibly bipedal sauropod; the largest sauropod cloned by inGen. Has short hind legs with even bigger front legs. Surprisingly, it is able to rear up on it's short hind legs to rear up even taller to either scan the horizon or rear up to stomp on attackers. Very long, 30 foot long neck evolved to feed upon the tallest of treetops. Because of this long neck, Brachiosaurus has a large, 4-chambered, 250 pound heart designed to pump blood up all the way to the head. Teeth are spoon shaped, and are quite simple for grabbing leaves. Small head, with a short, stubby tail.
Behavior: Brachiosaurus is a generally peaceful animal, often enjoying the company of smaller herbivores like hadrosaurs, such as Parasaurolophus and Hypacrosaurus, and other sauropods like Apatosaurus and Mamenchisaurus. Their tremendous size as an adult makes them tower over even the largest of predators. Even the terrifying Carcharodontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus tend to avoid hunting them, with only the pack-hunting Allosaurus serving a threat. Often compared to a modern giraffe, Brachiosaurus has an extremly long neck, reaching as high as 30 feet, roughly as long as a Gorgosaurus. Also like a giraffe, Brachiosaurus has a four-chambered heart weighing in excess of 250 pounds, used to pump blood up the 30 foot long neck, otherwise the animal would simply faint. Brachiosaurus communicate with each other over long distances using a wide variety of musical calls, such as honks, bellows and bugles. These sounds can echo across the horizon, booming across the field untill the sound wave dies off. During the breeding season, fights between male Brachiosaurus are extremely uncommon; normally it's the loudest and most deafening call that settles an argument. But sometimes this does not happen. In extreme cases, the two males will become extremely aggressive with each other, and will line up alongside each other. Like how two male Girraffes, the two Brachiosaurus will them bellow and whap each other violently with their long necks, scraping and bruising each other. The stronger male will then tire out the other male, and the victor will then select a female as his mate. After breeding, the female Brachiosaurus will them become distant from it's regular group, becoming solitary and not really communicating with others of it's kind. After laying the eggs, the female Brachiosaurus will then stick around the nesting area for a short time, watching for egg-stealers like Velociraptor and Compsognathus. After the time is up, the female will then generally abandon the nest, as the risk of accidentally crushing the eggs under her feet are quite high. After the young hatch several months later, they will immediately seek shelter in the Jungle, hiding in areas like a burrow or a fallen tree log. As they grow, they are at extremely high risk of being eaten by small carnivores like Ornitholestes and Troodon, so they will often stay hidden in their hiding spot, or when they leave to eat vegitation, hide among the green foliage and hope their not spotted by carnivores. The remaining hatchlings that survive to become as large as a Dilophosaurus will them move from their hiding spots and congregate to the grasslands in search of a herd to join.
Additional Information: Unlike a regular Brachiosaurus individual living in the late Jurassic Period would, the population of Brachiosaurus Altithorax can actually chew up and grind their food, using a simple chewing mechanism, where the lower jaw smacks into the upper jaw, and the spoon-like teeth grind up the food, aiding digestion. Whatever the reason, it has made Brachiosaurus successful on Isla Sorna.
Maximum Age: The maximum age an adult Brachiosaurus can reach is a majestic 29.9 years.
