The study isn't exactly accurate I think. 25 tons is impossible for Brachiosaurus because such a weight would be extremely underweight. The study used mammals as their primary comparison which seems hardly accurate comparison when talking about archosaurs.

Experts have concluded on theropods and other dinosaurs an agreeable amount of flesh on the bones. Any less then this is highly unaccurate.

I wouldn't by this B.S if I were anyone.
