I know this may sound stupid, but anyone has a good comparison of those 2? Ampicoelias is supposed to be longer but lighter, and Bruhatkayosaurus shorter but heavier.

This one does not seem right to me. Ampicoelias in that picture still looks alot heavier then Bruhathkayosaurus because its body is so much longer and taller if you know what I mean. Look at how huge it is at the hips. In that picture the total body size of Amphicoelias is much bigger then that of Bruhathkaysaurus.

I know this might be stupid, but I'd like a good comparison.

What i want to know is how they figured out that Bruha was heavier than Amphi even though it was a fair bit smaller.

Bruhathkayosaurus was a titanosaur probably. They are much more heavy built then Diplodocidae. That's why Argentinosaurus is heavier then D.hallorum.

True, although the size diff between Argentino and Diplo is way smaller tha Amphic and Bruhat.

But the weight differnece is bigger

Between Amphi and Bru there is 20 m difference and 50 tons weight difference.
Between D.hallorum and Argentinosaurus there is like ?5? m difference and 57 ton weight difference. I see your point, but Ampicoelias probably was not realy that heavy at all. A 35 m D.hallorum was only 16 tons. Using 3D calculating I get 128 tons for Amphi and 160 for Bru.

Suppose, i forgot how light Diplo is XD
Though i do wonder how a 35m animal can weigh 'only' 15t.

Well, more of da half of its body is tail: a looong tail
And non-macronarian sauropods usually have short legs, so their legs r smaller and lighter

25 tons is realy light for a Giraffatitan. I used to read books that said 60 to 80 tonsXD. Some something different then 25.

But Big Al, do you have a good size comparison. Even with the new method Bru was heavier then Amphicoelias. And the size chart I linked doesnt seem to fit cause Amphi's body looks a lot bigger and longer then that of Amphicoelias.
