What’s 85 tons, 130 feet long and six-and-a-half stories tall? Why, the largest dinosaur ever known to man of course. Paleontologists just discovered the fossils of the remarkable creature from the titanosaur species.
A local farm worker uncovered the remains in the desert La Flecha about two-and-a-half hours west of Patagonia. Luckily for other dinosaurs during the Late Cretaceous period (95 to 100 million years ago), this particular dinosaur was an herbivore. Imagine feeding a body that weighs the equivalent to 11 African elephants or 30 hippos.
We can’t wait to see this dinosaur if it ever comes to an exhibit. Spread the exciting news by sharing this post.
