I presume that you are referring to Janensch's Brachiosaurus branci
skull in Berlin. Do you have any measurements to substantiate your
statement that it could "swallow a human whole"? I have to question
that based on the fact that B. branchi is not considered to be one of
the larger sauropods - we're not talking Amphecoelus here.
