Macronarians of the Morrison by Paleo-King Macronarians of the Morrison by Paleo-King
An encounter near the edge of a highland forest between a trio of Brachiosaurus altithorax and the very rare basal macronarian sauropod Haplocanthosaurus delfsi, in the Morrison formation in Colorado, 150 million years ago. Stegosaurus armatus also makes a brief appearance.

Suggested background music: [link]

Brachiosaurus altithorax was one of the largest "classic" sauropods of the Morrison formation, with large adults (such as the one formerly known as "Ultrasauros") reaching up to 90 feet in length and weighing 45 tons. Haplocanthosaurus, a distant relative, reached only 50 feet as an adult and was a "living fossil" in its own time, thought to be descended in a direct line from the common ancestor of both brachiosaurs and camarasaurs.

It has a prehistoric taste to it. Great job on the detailing of the forest, and I enjoy the hidden Stegosaurus, thanks to another comment I was able to spot it.

Good job with the Stegosaurus.

Couldn't see it for a long time.

i think haplocanthosaurus is older than that, they lived in the oxfordian which is way before stego armatus or brachiosaurus. correct me if i'm wrong.
