In Argentina unearthed the largest dinosaur


The 100-million-year-old fossils "represent the largest species described so far and one of the most complete titanosaurs", the paper's authors write, though one of the lead researchers acknowledges the difficulty of determining such a distinction.

But the finding turned out to be more than just a big bone.

The P. mayorum has now been given the award of largest dinosaur ever to walk the Earth, averaging a length of 122 feet (37 meters) and height of 20 feet (six meters) at the shoulders.

A study reveals a new species who is the heavyweight champion of all dinosaurs, and makes Tyrannosaurus rex look as scary as a child.

The plant-eating giant is the largest of a group of dinosaurs called titanosaurs.

"The Legendary T.Rex and other meat eaters look like dwarfs when you place them near one of these giant titanosaurs", said Pol.

But despite their intimidating size, Pol believes the vegetarian P. mayorum was a gentle giant.

"New species are important because they show us how animals were in the past", he said.

But Graham added despite the hard position China found itself in, there was one silver lining to the North Korean cloud. It wasn't clear what threats Trump was referring to when he addressed reporters Tuesday.

"Getting up. Walking around".

"It's hard to argue this is not a big deal when it comes to (possibly) the largest land animal ever discovered", says University of Maryland paleontologist, Thomas Holtz, who is not part of the study, via email.

It was more than 15% heavier than Dreadnoughtus, the largest titanosaur from which a femur (thigh bone) and humerus (forearm bone) have been preserved.

The skeleton has been on display on the museum's fourth floor, where its head and neck extend out toward the elevator banks, since 2016.

"The bigger it was, the less predators will try to attack it", he said. The structure was so large that the dinosaur head almost goes into the hallway of the NY museum.

A similar dinosaur called Argentinosaurus has been calculated to have weighed more than 80 tonnes, but Jose Carballido, from the Museo Paleontologico Egido Feruglio, Argentina, says vertebrae fossils suggest this species was in fact 10 per cent smaller than Patagotitan.

"There could be [bigger], but probably we are pretty close to the size limit", he said.

It is a great month for paleontology because the latest discovery holds great importance to the way people view dinosaurs.
