by 4M/Toysmith

With the Dig a Dinosaur kit from 4M and Toysmith, you'll get to be a top paleontologist! Use the included tools to carefully dig around and brush off the bones that are hidden within the plaster block. Once you've excavated all of them, assemble the new-found skeleton of a Brachiosaurus and place it on the display platform for everyone to see. There are a total of six dinosaurs in the set; collect them all and have your own personal museum right in the comfort of your bedroom!

Easily one of the most recognized of the dinosaurs, Brachiosaurus is actually the a genus. The actual name of this enormous sauropod is Braciosaurus altithorax, or B. altithorax. It was first discovered and described by Elmer S. Riggs in 1903 in what is now the Colorado River. Like most sauropods, it has an extremely disproportionately long neck topped by a small head, and a large overall size. Unlike the majority of other sauropods however, B. altithorax had short hindlimbs and longer forelimbs as well as a tail that was shorter in proportion to its neck. Once thought to be ectothermic because of its large size and need for foraging, current research has been leaning towards B. altithorax being warm-blooded. Its total length is estimated to be at around 26 meters (85 feet), with a weight of between 28.7-56.3 metric tons. The uncertainty of the weight is due to most complete skeletons discovered to date appearing to have come from sub-adults.

Assembled, the skeleton is approximately 28cm in length.
