Dry Mesa Brachiosaurus cervical in dorsal view

June 8, 2014


This is BYU 12867–you’ve seen it here before–in dorsal view. It’s not a brilliant shot–I took it through the glass of the display case while filming a documentary at the North American Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi, Utah, in 2008. Centrum length is 94 cm, total length with the overhanging prezygapophyses is over a meter.

    Apparently there is some USNM neck material from Brachiosaurus too. Not much, just a couple of vertebrae and some random fragments, but it’s a specimen I never knew of before, and I don’t know if it’s ever been published. Specimen is USNM PAL337859.
