8.0.0 UPDATE Edit
Brachiosaurus (brack-e-o-sawr-us, meaning "Arm Lizard") is a giant diurnal (meaning active during the day) prehistoric creature that was included in the original Fossils and Archeology mod. It is the only sauropod in the mod so far and is by far the largest mob at 15 blocks high, over twice the size of the second largest (spinosaurus). There is no size difference between genders, but males have a much brighter and redder crest. Newborns are 2.1 blocks tall, and they are fully grown in 20 minecraft days. They can be given essense of chicken to grow faster, at the cost of hunger.
Brachiosaurus, like almost all other mobs, has a mood that can drop or be raised through various means. Having a low mood means it may attack or avoid you, having a high mood will make it passive. Right-click it with a DinoPedia to see what its mood is at.
A fossil version of the brachiosaurus can be created by right-clicking a bio-fossil on the ground, which will create a random skeleton of a prehistoric creature with a small chance of it being a brachiosaurus. Like most other mobs in the mod, they do not spawn naturally in the world and must be created by the player through the culture vat. As they are dinosaurs, they hatch from large eggs that need to be warmed by any light source.
Brachiosaurus are calm gentle giants that are not afraid of any other mob. They will never attack unless provoked, which no carnivore in the mod or vanilla is stupid enough to do. They seem somewhat slow when minding their own business, but can be very fast when defending themselves. Their normal attack alone is enough to kill an unarmored player in one hit, and they also have a special attack where they raise their legs up into the air, and smash them down on the attacker causing huge damage. They are able to destroy blocks weaker than iron as they amble around as well. They mostly wander around searching for trees to eat and sleeping, so a very large enclosure with ancient ferns is practical for it.
Brachiosaurus will interact with scratching posts, tethered logs, and will chase toy balls, bring up their mood significantly. They are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day and will sleep at night.
Adult brachiosaurs can breed and lay eggs every five minutes as adults if there is a male and female present. The breeding probability is handled by how many individuals are nearby.
Brachiosaurus is tameable and ridable. They can be tamed in three different ways. The first way requires the player to stand within six blocks of the egg as it hatches to automatically tame it. The second way is to hand-feed it until it is tamed. The final way is to forcibly tame them using a whip. They are ordered with a stick.
Adult brachiosaurus are rideable after being tamed. It is controlled with a whip. The controls are in the same WASD format as normal movement, and shift to get off. When riding, the brachiosaurus is generally very slow moving, but large enough that most mobs will not be able to hit you from your vantage point. They will stop when in deep water.
Brachiosaurus are herbivores and require quite a lot of food. They will seek out and eat flowers, leaves, grass, and ancient ferns. They can also be hand-fed seeds, wheat, bread, apples, sugar, sugarcane, cookies, melon, and cake, and will feed from feeders that have plants in them.
