Cheers. So this skull belongs either to a camarasaurid or a
brachiosaurid, but it is not that of _Camarasaurus_, so therefore it
may belong to _Brachiosaurus_ - have I got the right idea here?
I recall that Marsh pictured _Brontosaurus_ with a short, blunt snout
- very camarasaurid-like. But (in Carpenter's eyes) does this skull
really come from _Brachiosaurus_?
