Full Answer

A typical adult brachiosaurus was 52 feet tall, and it could stretch to around 80 feet when required. Adult weight varied widely among individuals, but they were capable of weighing in excess of 50 tons.

The closest comparison to their body structure found in modern times is the giraffe. While much smaller in size, the elongated neck, leg placement and relative foot size are all similar to that of the brachiosaurus.

    How do I determine the size of my water footprint?

    A:

    Calculate the size of your water footprint by recording all activities that directly or indirectly lead to water consumption. Use a reference table to convert different activities to cubic units of water usage a year. Alternatively, use a preset water footprint calculator, such as the one available from GRACE Communications Foundation, that completes the conversions automatically and calculates the final total.
