Fossil hunters use horses to extract the 150 million-year-old Brachiosaurus arm from the Utah ravine

Paleontologists have discovered the most complete upper arm Brachiosaurus bone in history.

At over six feet tall, the right humerus belonged to a 6,600-pound dinosaur that once walked the Earth about 150 million years ago.

The bone was unearthed in the Morrison Formation in Utah, which is a fossil hunting shelter for researchers.

Because the bone is so large and the terrain so rugged, the team had to count on the help of Clydesdale’s horses to get it off the ground.

To carefully move the bone, the team locked him in a “jacket” of plaster and burlap that rested on two pieces of wood: the entire package weighed about 992 pounds.

The artifact was first discovered in 2019 at a site in Utah state park by team artist Brian Engh, A B C reports.

However, the team could not move it until it received the correct permits, which they did in October last year.

The humerus, which is believed to be the fifth largest ever, was seen alongside other bones, including several rib fragments, as well as fossil plants.

Before this discovery, only two other bones of the upper arm of a Brachiosaurus have been found in the United States: one in 1900 and one in 1955.

And the recent finding may also be the oldest, the researchers added, given the place where the fossils were found.

Anatomist Mathew Wedel, of the Western University of Health Sciences, wrote in an email to ABC: “ We are particularly excited because this Brachiosaurus found itself very close to several other identifiable sauropod sites, petrified logs and plant fragments. … in the lower layers of the Morrison Formation, which makes these lineages recede for several million years. ‘

Brachiosaurus, which means arm lizard, were herbivorous sauropods, a family of very large dinosaurs that eat plants and who walked primarily on four legs.

They lived mainly in Algeria, Portugal, Tanzania and the United States during the Late Jurassic period, 155 to 140 million years ago.

It is believed that they were about 100 feet long on average and about 41 feet tall.

Dr. Stephen Poropat of Swinburne University said: ‘Often in the media, what is presented as Brachiosaurus is very much based on Giraffatitan [a closely related African genus of dinosaur]. ’

“The more fossils we find, the better we will understand what Brachiosaurus was like as an animal: its anatomy and where it is found in the dinosaur family tree, its behavior and its ecology.”

WHAT WERE THE BRACHIOSAURUS DINOSAURS AND WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THEM?

Brachiosaurus, which means arm lizard, were herbivorous sauropods, a family of very large dinosaurs that eat plants and who walked primarily on four legs.

They lived pirmarily in Algeria, Portugal, Tanzania and the United States during the Late Jurassic period, 155 to 140 million years ago.

Brachiosaurus kept his head very high at the end of his elongated neck and is likely to have eaten the leaves of tall tree-shaped plants.

It is believed that they were about 100 feet (30 meters) long on average and about 41 feet (12.5 meters) tall.

A complete fossilized skeleton, such as one that is exhibited at the Natural History Museum in Berlin, can weigh up to 50 tons.

As a herbivore, whose spatulated teeth prevented it from chewing, the plant that houses the animal remains in its stomach for long periods of time.

Some of this undigested material was fossilized and can be studied today.

When scientists compared plant remains in specimens of East Africa with remains in their North American cousins, they found differences between the types of flora, indicating that the plants grew in different climates.

Since the Brachiosaurus could not swim, this is seen as evidence that Africa and North America had already begun to separate from each other.
