dinosaurs, size...

I think we all know that dinosaurs are massive, however this information should help put it into perspective exactly how big they are.
The largest know dinosaur at this moment in time is the Brachiosaurus which is 23m in length and 12m in height, which about the size of 2 large busses in length and a 4 story building in height. Fragmentary leg bones and vertebrae of even larger dinosaur species are known, but these skeletal remains are too incomplete to determine their exact size, the Argentinasaurus and Amphicoelias might have been one and a half to two times larger than Brachiosaurus.
