  • That's the big "Ultrasauros"/Brachiosaurus scap, also from Dry Mesa.

    Biggest…. sauropod…. ever (part…. I)

  • If you don't have them to hand, look at my Brachiosaurus reconstruction in the original Sauroposeidon paper -- I used Brian's illo of the "Ultrasauros" scap as the basis for my Brachiosaurus the first time around (but not the second -- the scap in the redrawn illo from Wedel & Cifelli 2005 is based on the B. brancai scap).

    Biggest…. sauropod…. ever (part…. I)

  • I think he's probably referring to the sculpted replica of the "Ultrasauros" forelimb on display at the NMMNH&S.

  • Hi Darren! why Ultrasauros didn´t exist??? because curtice said that??, many paleontologist have examinated the dorsal vertebrae for years and all of them said that it was very closed to the brachiosaurus brancai of naturkunde museum. is any paleontologist to day that defend that ultrasaurs is real, that the vertebrae is of a brachiosaurid?

  • Oh, and if you’re wondering about Ultrasauros (originally informally named Ultrasaurus: note the spelling difference), it’s no longer regarded as a valid taxon: the type material - a dorsal vertebra - was shown by Brian Curtice and colleagues (Curtice et al. 1996) to belong to Supersaurus (come back Brian, all is forgiven!) while the famous Ultrasauros scapulocoracoid seems to belong to Brachiosaurus.
