Giraffatitan, meaning "giant giraffe", is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived during the late Jurassic Period (Kimmeridgian-Tithonian stages). It was originally named as an African species of Brachiosaurus (B. brancai). Giraffatitan is one of the largest animals known to have walked the earth. This particular Giraffatitan is showcased in the Walt Disney feature film Dinosaur.
An elderly Giraffatitan named Baylene is shown as a supporting character to the main characters. Also, several Brachiosaurs were in the opening scene, but no more than just Baylene appeared for the rest of the film. This shows that Giraffatitan is now endangered in the film due to the meteor shower.
