Paleontologists Discover Fossil Remains of World’s Biggest Creature, Titanosaur

Paleontologists have done great job by discovering fossilized remains of world’s largest creature that ever lived on earth in Argentina. Team of paleontologists led by Dr. Jose luis Carballido and Dr. Diego Pol from the Museum of Palaeontology Egidio Feruglio excavated the fossils which were first discovered by a farmer in the desert near La Flecha.

Partial skeletons of about seven creatures were being excavated by researchers, discovering 150 bones in total. On analyzing the fossils, researchers suspected that the fossil remains belong to a new species of titanosaur weighing about 77 tons. They added that the length of the dinosaur from its head to the tip of its tail was 40m with height of 20m.

Till now, Argentinosaurus, a similar type of creature which was discovered in Patagonia, was considered as the world’s biggest dinosaur, weighing 70 tons. But, the newly discovered creature, titanosaur, is much heavier than the Argentinosaurus.

Titanosaur, a massive herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period, has been declared as the largest animal known that walked on Earth. Researchers suspected that the giant beast ever lived in the forests of Patagonia at about 95 to 100 million years ago. “It will be named describing its magnificence and in honor to both the region and farm owners who alerted us about the discovery”, said researchers.
