Giraffatitan was a very tall sauropod who lived in the Late Jurassic period in today’s Tanzania. Giraffatitan is a braciosauridae with nostrils on the possibly closer to the snout than previously thought, shorter hind legs than front legs, and a fairly short tail compared with the rest of its body. It was about 74 ft. long and stood about 40 ft. tall. There are theories that it had a trunk at the top of its head, but that is yet to be proven. It was very tall to reach the highest of branches and leaves, it is estimated that in order to maintain its size, the Giraffatitan would have to have eaten about 400 lbs. a day!
This painting was influenced by the Hudson River School painter, Thomas Cole. I love his quick plein air paintings, and his colors were what inspired this piece.
