Come face to face with a Jurassic giant! A short virtual reality story about the famous Brachiosaurus brancai, (new name: Giraffatitan brancai), ecosystem niches, and modern Giraffes.

The original bones of Brachiosaurus (= Giraffatitan) are mounted in the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, forming the highest mounted dinosaur of the world. If you have a smartphone with cardboard or any other VR headsets, you can view the video as a truly amazing VR Story in 3D.
