In-game Information EditThe Brachiosaurus is the largest dinosaur in the whole history of JurassiCraft. A majestic sauropod, Brachiosaurus is a herd animal. While they're usually pretty peaceful because nothing attacks them when fully grown, with around 150 HP of health, Brachiosaurus will still fight back hard towards any aggressors, dealing a good 15 HP of damage. Brachiosaurus will search for all sorts of vegetation when feeling hungry, including the vanilla growing ones and JurassiCraft plant ones. They also will eat from feeders. Brachiosaurus can drink water either from a water source or from rain when thirsty, and they'll wander around the world, occasionally flocking in groups ranging from 2-4. They will fall asleep when the moon is fully up in the sky, and wake up when the sun is fully up in the sky. Male and female Brachiosaurus will breed every now and then, laying 4-8 eggs that eventually hatch. Brachiosaurus is not imprintable (see: Taming), due to the lack of parental care and parent/offspring bonding between them.
Real-world Information EditOne of the larger and more famous sauropods of the Late Jurassic, Brachiosaurus lived in North America. For a long time, it was thought to have also lived at the Tendaguru Formation in East Africa, but the remains found there have since been reclassified as Giraffatitan. Brachiosaurus can grow up to 24 metres long and 9 metres or more in height, and can weigh up to 37 tons.
As its anatomy implies, this sauropod is thought to have browsed from the tops of trees, much like a modern giraffe. Its diet would've consisted mostly of Ginkgo leaves, conifers, tree-ferns, and large cycads.
JP Information EditBrachiosaurs, like most other sauropods, are somewhat social animals that live in groups (of about 2 - 15 individuals), usually led by an alpha male or alpha female. Using their long windpipes and bizarre nasal chambers, they produce distinctive trumpeting "singing" calls to communicate with one another.
Brachiosaurus has no parental care. Upon hatching, the mottled sauropodlets head for the forest that has plenty of undergrowth, where they spend their childhood relatively safe from most larger predators until they become too big to fit among the trees.When fully grown, Brachiosaurus consumes vast amounts of vegetation, requiring around 120 - 150 kg of fodder per day. Ideally, a Brachiosaurus enclosure should consist of vast open plains, dotted with large patches of forest.
